Latin.png Latin text

Pauper sum ego et in laboribus a juventute mea:
exaltatus autem humiliatus sum et conturbatus.

Aestimatus sum cum descentibus in lacum.
Factus sum sicut homo sine adiutorio.

Circumdederunt me canes multi
et consilium malignantium obsedit me.

Respice in me Deus et miserere mei
quia unicus et pauper sum ego.
