|1||Ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τῆς Ιουδαίας.
||A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Idumea.||Longing for God. Psalm 63(v62)|
|2||Ὁ θεὸς ὁ θεός μου, πρὸς σὲ ὀρθρίζω·
ἐδίψησέν σοι ἡ ψυχή μου.
ποσαπλῶς σοι ἡ σάρξ μου ἐν γῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἀβάτῳ καὶ ἀνύδρῳ;
|O God my God I cry to thee early; my soul has thirsted for thee: how often has my flesh [longed] after thee in a barren and trackless and dry land!|| |
|3||οὕτως ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ ὤφθην σοι.
τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ τὴν δόξαν σου.
|Thus have I appeared before thee in the sanctuary that I might see thy power and thy glory.|| |
|4||ὅτι κρεῖσσον τὸ ἔλεός σου ὑπὲρ ζωάς·
τὰ χείλη μου ἐπαινέσουσίν σε.
|For thy mercy is better than life: my lips shall praise thee.|| |
|5||οὕτως εὐλογήσω σε ἐν τῇ ζωῇ μου,
ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ἀρῶ τὰς χεῖράς μου.
|Thus will I bless thee during my life: I will lift up my hands in thy name.|| |
|6||ὡσεὶ στέατος καὶ πιότητος ἐμπλησθείη ἡ ψυχή μου,
καὶ χείλη ἀγαλλιάσεως αἰνέσει τὸ στόμα μου.
|Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness; and [my] joyful lips shall praise thy name.|| |
|7||εἰ ἐμνημόνευόν σου ἐπὶ τῆς στρωμνῆς μου,
ἐν τοῖς ὄρθροις ἐμελέτων εἰς σέ·
|Forasmuch as I have remembered thee on my bed: in the early seasons I have meditated on thee.|| |
|8||ὅτι ἐγενήθης βοηθός μου,
καὶ ἐν τῇ σκέπῃ τῶν πτερύγων σου ἀγαλλιάσομαι.
|For thou hast been my helper and in the shelter of thy wings will I rejoice.|| |
|9||ἐκολλήθη ἡ ψυχή μου ὀπίσω σου,
ἐμοῦ ἀντελάβετο ἡ δεξιά σου.
|My soul has kept very close behind thee: thy right hand has upheld me.|| |
|10||αὐτοὶ δὲ εἰς μάτην ἐζήτησαν τὴν ψυχήν μου,
εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὰ κατώτατα τῆς γῆς·
|But they vainly sought after my soul; they shall go into the lowest parts o the earth.|| |
|11||παραδοθήσονται εἰς χεῖρας ῥομφαίας,
μερίδες ἀλωπέκων ἔσονται.
|They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword; they shall be portions for foxes.|| |
|12||ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς εὐφρανθήσεται ἐπὶ τῷ θεῷ,
ἐπαινεσθήσεται πᾶς ὁ ὀμνύων ἐν αὐτῷ,
ὅτι ἐνεφράγη στόμα λαλούντων ἄδικα.
|But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall be praised; for the mouth of them that speak unjust things has been stopped.|| |
