1 The title of the nynthe salm. In to the ende, for the pryuytees of the sone, the salm of Dauid.
2 Lord, Y schal knouleche to thee in al myn herte; Y schal telle alle thi merueils.
3 Thou hiyeste, Y schal be glad, and Y schal be fulli ioieful in thee; Y schal synge to thi name.
4 For thou turnest myn enemy abac; thei schulen be maad feble, and schulen perische fro thi face.
5 For thou hast maad my doom and my cause; thou, that demest riytfulnesse, `hast set on the trone.
6 Thou blamedist hethene men, and the wickid perischide; thou hast do awei the name of hem in to the world, and in to the world of world.
7 The swerdis of the enemy failiden in to the ende; and thou hast distried the citees of hem. The mynde of hem perischide with sown;
8 and the Lord dwellith with outen ende. He made redi his trone in doom; and he schal deme the world in equite,
9 he schal deme puplis in riytfulnesse.
10 And the Lord is maad refuyt, `ether help, `to a pore man; an helpere in couenable tymes in tribulacioun.
11 And thei, that knowen thi name, haue hope in thee; for thou, Lord, hast not forsake hem that seken thee.
12 Synge ye to the Lord, that dwellith in Syon; telle ye hise studyes among hethene men.
13 God foryetith not the cry of pore men; for he hath mynde, and sekith the blood of hem.
14 Lord, haue thou merci on me; se thou my mekenesse of myn enemyes.
15 Which enhaunsist me fro the yatis of deeth; that Y telle alle thi preisyngis in the yatis of the douyter of Syon.
16 Y schal `be fulli ioyeful in thin helthe; hethene men ben fast set in the perisching, which thei maden. In this snare, which thei hidden, the foot of hem is kauyt.
17 The Lord makynge domes schal be knowun; the synnere is takun in the werkis of hise hondis.
18 Synneris be turned togidere in to helle; alle folkis, that foryeten God.
19 For the foryetyng of a pore man schal not be in to the ende; the pacience of pore men schal not perische in to the ende.
20 Lord, rise thou vp, a man be not coumfortid; folkis be demyd in thi siyt.
21 Lord, ordeine thou a lawe makere on hem; wite folkis, that thei ben men.
