 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΨΑΛΜΟΙ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

1 Στηλογραφία τῷ Δαυιδ.

Φύλαξόν με, Κύριε, ὅτι ἐπὶ σοὶ ἤλπισα.

  A Writing of David.
Keep me O Lord; for I have hoped in you.
2 εἶπα τῷ κυρίῳ Κύριός μου εἶ σύ.
  I said to the Lord, You are my Lord;
for you has no need of my goodness.
3 τοῖς ἁγίοις τοῖς ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτοῦ
ἐθαυμάστωσεν πάντα τὰ θελήματα αὐτοῦ ἐν αὐτοῖς.
  On behalf of the saints that are in his land,
he has magnified all his pleasure in them.
4 ἐπληθύνθησαν αἱ ἀσθένειαι αὐτῶν,
μετὰ ταῦτα ἐτάχυναν·
οὐ μὴ συναγάγω τὰς συναγωγὰς αὐτῶν ἐξ αἱμάτων,
οὐδὲ μὴ μνησθῶ τῶν ὀνομάτων αὐτῶν διὰ χειλέων μου.
  Their weaknesses have been multiplied;
afterward they hasted.
I will by no means assemble their bloody meetings,
neither will I make mention of their names with my lips.
5 Κύριος ἡ μερὶς τῆς κληρονομίας μου καὶ τοῦ ποτηρίου μου·
σὺ εἶ ὁ ἀποκαθιστῶν τὴν κληρονομίαν μου ἐμοί.
  The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:
you are he that restores my inheritance to me.
6 σχοινία ἐπέπεσάν μοι ἐν τοῖς κρατίστοις·
καὶ γὰρ ἡ κληρονομία μου κρατίστη μοί ἐστιν.
  The lines have fallen to me in the best places,
yes, I have a most excellent heritage.
7 εὐλογήσω τὸν κύριον τὸν συνετίσαντά με·
ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἕως νυκτὸς ἐπαίδευσάν με οἱ νεφροί μου.
  I will bless the Lord who has instructed me;
my reins too have chastened me even till night.
8 προωρώμην τὸν κύριον ἐνώπιόν μου διὰ παντός,
ὅτι ἐκ δεξιῶν μού ἐστιν, ἵνα μὴ σαλευθῶ.
  I foresaw the Lord always before my face;
for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved.
9 διὰ τοῦτο ηὐφράνθη ἡ καρδία μου,
καὶ ἠγαλλιάσατο ἡ γλῶσσά μου,
ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἡ σάρξ μου κατασκηνώσει ἐπ' ἐλπίδι,
  Therefore my heart rejoiced an my tongue exulted;
moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
10 ὅτι οὐκ ἐγκαταλείψεις τὴν ψυχήν μου εἰς ᾅδην,
οὐδὲ δώσεις τὸν ὅσιόν σου ἰδεῖν διαφθοράν.
  because you will not leave my soul in hell,
neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.
11 ἐγνώρισάς μοι ὁδοὺς ζωῆς·
πληρώσεις με εὐφροσύνης μετὰ τοῦ προσώπου σου,
τερπνότητες ἐν τῇ δεξιᾷ σου εἰς τέλος.
  You have made known to me the ways of life;
you will fill me with joy with your countenance:
at your right hand [there are] delights for ever.
