Latin.png Latin text

Sederunt principes, et adversum me loquebantur:
et iniqui persecunti sunt me.

Adjuva me, Domine Deus meus:
salvum me fac propter misericordiam tuam.
after Psalm 118:23, 86

English.png English translation

The princes sat, and spoke against me:
they have persecuted me unjustly.

Do thou help me, Lord my God:
Save me for thy mercy's sake.
