Latin.png Latin text

Oculi mei semper ad Dominum, quoniam ipse evellet de laqueo pedes meos.
Respice in me et miserere mei, quia unicus et pauper sum ego,
tribulationes cordis mei multiplicatae sunt.
De necessitatibus meis erue me, vide humilitatem meam et laborem meum
et dimitte universa delicta mea.
(Ps 24;15-18)
