Original text and translations
Bonus et rectus Dominus propterea docebit peccatores viam suam.
Diriget mansuetos in juditio et docebit humiles viam suam universae via ejus mansuetudo
et veritas custodientibus testamentum ejus et testimonia propter nomen tuum parce delicto meo.
Gracious and righteous is the Lord therefore will he teach sinners his way.
Them that are meek shall he guide in judgement and such as are gentle, them shall he teach his way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto them who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For thy Name's sake, be merciful unto my sin.
