Beati quorum remissae sunt iniquitates, et quorom tecta sunt peccata. Beatus vir cui non imputavit Dominus peccatum, nec est in spiritu eius dolus. Quoniam tacui, inveteraverunt ossa mea, dum clamarem tota die. Quoniam die ac nocte gravata est super me manus tua; conversus sum in aerumna mea, dum configitur spina. Delictum meum cognitum tibi feci, et iniustitiam meam non abscondi. Dixi: confitebor adversum me iniustitiam meam Domino; et tu remisisti impietatem peccati mei. Pro hac orabit ad te omnis sanctus in tempore opportuno. Verumtamen in diluvio aquarum multarum, ad eum non approximabunt. Tu es refugium meum a tribulatione quae circumdedit me; exsultatio mea erue me a circumdantibus me. Intellectum tibi dabo, et instruam te in via hac qua gradieris; firmabo super te oculos meos. Nolite fieri sicut equus et mulus, in quibus non est intellectus. In camo et freno maxillas eorum constringe, qui non approximant ad te. Multa flagella peccatoris; sperantem autem in Domino misericordia circumdabit. Laetamini in Domino, et exsultate, iusti; et gloriamini, omnes recti corde. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me; my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said: I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgivest the iniquity of my sin. For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found. Surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place from the trouble which surrounds me; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go; I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding. Whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.
