Psalm 113: 1-9 | When Israel went out of Egypt...
A meditation on the joys and sorrows of the spiritual life.
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)
