TEXT

 

Psalmus 113: 1-9

 

1 Alleluja. In exitu Israel de Aegypto,

domus Jacob de populo barbaro, 

2  facta est Judaea sanctificatio ejus, Israel potestas ejus. 

3  Mare vidit, et fugit; Jordanis conversus est retrorsum. 

4  Montes exsultaverunt ut arietes, et colles sicut agni ovium. 

5  Quid est tibi, mare, quod fugisti? et tu, Jordanis, quia conversus es retrorsum?

6  montes, exsultastis sicut arietes? et colles sicut agni ovium? 

7  A facie Domini mota est terra, a facie Dei Jacob; 

8  qui convertit petram in stagna aquarum, et rupem in fontes aquarum. 

9  Non nobis, Domine, non nobis; sed nomini tuo da gloriam, 

--Latin Vulgate (Clemintine)

 

1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people: 

2 Judea made his sanctuary, Israel his dominion. 

3  The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back. 

4  The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock. 

5  What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?

6  Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs of the flock? 

7 At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, at the presence of the God of Jacob: 

8  Who turned the rock into pools of water, and the stony hill into fountains of waters. 

9  Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory. (Alleluia)

--Douay-Rheims Bible
