The Psalm 42 — Judica Me

Judica me, Deus, et Discérne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab hómine iníquo et dolóso érue me.

Quia tu es Deus, fortitúdo mea: quare me repulisti, et quare tristis incédo, dum affígit me inimícus?

Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam; ipsa e deduxérunt et adduxérunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernácula tua.

Et introíbo ad altáre Dei: ad Deum que lætíficat juventútem meam.

Confitébor tibi in cíthara, Deus, Deus meus: quare tristis es, ánima mea, et quare contúrbas me?

Spera in Deo, quóniam adhue confitébor illi: salutáre vultus mei, et Deus meus.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, etSpirítui Sancto.

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc, et semper: et in sæcula sæcloórum. Amen.

Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that us not holy; deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast thou cast me off, and why do I go sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

Send forth Thy light and Thy truth; they have conducted me and brought me unto thy holy hill, and into Thy tabernacles.

And I will go unto the altar of God; to God Who giveth joy to my youth.

To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me?

Hope in God, for I will still give my praise to Him; the salvation of my countenance, and my God.

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, world without end. Amen.

ANT. Introíbo ad altáre Dei.

Ad Dei, qui lætíficat juventútem meam.

Adjutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini.

Qui fecit cælum et terram.

ANT. I will go in unto the altar of God.

Unto God who giveth joy to my youth.

Our help is in the name of the Lord.

Who made Heaven and earth.
