 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΨΑΛΜΟΙ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

1 Σῶσόν με, ὁ θεός, ὅτι εἰσήλθοσαν ὕδατα ἕως ψυχῆς μου.
  Save me O God; for the waters have come in to my soul.
2 ἐνεπάγην εἰς ἰλὺν βυθοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὑπόστασις·
ἦλθον εἰς τὰ βάθη τῆς θαλάσσης, καὶ καταιγὶς κατεπόντισέν με.
  I am stuck fast in deep mire, and there is no standing:
I am come in to the depths of the sea, and a storm has overwhelmed me.
3 ἐκοπίασα κράζων, ἐβραγχίασεν ὁ λάρυγξ μου,
ἐξέλιπον οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐλπίζειν ἐπὶ τὸν θεόν μου.
  I am weary [of] crying, my throat has become hoarse;
mine eyes have failed by my waiting on my God.
4 ἐπληθύνθησαν ὑπὲρ τὰς τρίχας τῆς κεφαλῆς μου οἱ μισοῦν τές με δωρεάν,
ἐκραταιώθησαν οἱ ἐχθροί μου οἱ ἐκδιώκοντές με ἀδίκως·
ἃ οὐχ ἥρπασα, τότε ἀπετίννυον.
  They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head:
my enemies that persecute me unrighteously are strengthened:
then I restored that which I took not away.
5 ὁ θεός, σὺ ἔγνως τὴν ἀφροσύνην μου,
καὶ αἱ πλημμέλειαί μου ἀπὸ σοῦ οὐκ ἐκρύβησαν.
  O God, you know my foolishness;
and my transgressions are not hidden from you.
6 μὴ αἰσχυνθείησαν ἐπ' ἐμοὶ οἱ ὑπομένοντές σε, κύριε Κύριε τῶν δυνάμεων,
μὴ ἐντραπείησαν ἐπ' ἐμοὶ οἱ ζητοῦντές σε, ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Ισραηλ,
  Let not them that wait on you, O Lord of hosts, be ashamed on my account:
let not them that seek you, be ashamed on my account, O God of Israel.
7 ὅτι ἕνεκα σοῦ ὑπήνεγκα ὀνειδισμόν,
ἐκάλυψεν ἐντροπὴ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου.
  or I have suffered reproach for your sake;
shame has covered my face.
8 ἀπηλλοτριωμένος ἐγενήθην τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς μου,
καὶ ξένος τοῖς υἱοῖς τῆς μητρός μου,
  I became strange to my brethren,
and a stranger to my mother's children.
9 ὅτι ὁ ζῆλος τοῦ οἴκου σου κατέφαγέν με,
καὶ οἱ ὀνειδισμοὶ τῶν ὀνειδιζόντων σε ἐπέπεσαν ἐπ' ἐμέ.
  For the zeal of your house has eaten me up;
and the reproaches of them that reproached you are fallen upon me.
10 καὶ συνέκαμψα ἐν νηστείᾳ τὴν ψυχήν μου,
καὶ ἐγενήθη εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν ἐμοί·
  And I bowed down my soul with fasting,
and that was made my reproach.
11 καὶ ἐθέμην τὸ ἔνδυμά μου σάκκον,
καὶ ἐγενόμην αὐτοῖς εἰς παραβολήν.
  And I put on sackcloth for my covering;
and I became a proverb to them.
12 κατ' ἐμοῦ ἠδολέσχουν οἱ καθήμενοι ἐν πύλῃ,
καὶ εἰς ἐμὲ ἔψαλλον οἱ πίνοντες τὸν οἶνον.
  They that sit in the gate talked against me,
and they that drank wine sang against me.
13 ἐγὼ δὲ τῇ προσευχῇ μου πρὸς σέ, Κύριε·
καιρὸς εὐδοκίας, ὁ θεός,
ἐν τῷ πλήθει τοῦ ἐλέους σου·
ἐπάκουσόν μου ἐν ἀληθείᾳ τῆς σωτηρίας σου.
  But I [will cry] to you, O Lord, in my prayer;
O God, it is a propitious time:
in the multitude of your mercy hear me,
in the truth of your salvation.
14 σῶσόν με ἀπὸ πηλοῦ, ἵνα μὴ ἐμπαγῶ·
ῥυσθείην ἐκ τῶν μισούντων με καὶ ἐκ τοῦ βάθους τῶν ὑδάτων·
  Save me from the mire, that I stick not [in it]:
let me be delivered from them that hate me, and from the deep waters.
15 μή με καταποντισάτω καταιγὶς ὕδατος,
μηδὲ καταπιέτω με βυθός,
μηδὲ συσχέτω ἐπ' ἐμὲ φρέαρ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ.
  Let not the waterflood drown me,
nor let the deep swallow me up;
neither let the well shut its mouth upon me.
16 εἰσάκουσόν μου, Κύριε, ὅτι χρηστὸν τὸ ἔλεός σου·
κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐπίβλεψον ἐπ' ἐμέ.
  Hear me, O Lord; for your mercy is good:
according to the multitude of your compassions look upon me.
17 μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τοῦ παιδός σου,
ὅτι θλίβομαι, ταχὺ ἐπάκουσόν μου.
  And turn not away your face from your servant;
for I am afflicted: hear me speedily.
18 πρόσχες τῇ ψυχῇ μου καὶ λύτρωσαι αὐτήν,
ἕνεκα τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου ῥῦσαί με.
  Draw nigh to my soul and redeem it:
deliver me because of mine enemies.
19 σὺ γὰρ γινώσκεις τὸν ὀνειδισμόν μου
καὶ τὴν αἰσχύνην μου καὶ τὴν ἐντροπήν μου·
ἐναντίον σου πάντες οἱ θλίβοντές με.
  For you know my reproach,
and my shame, and my confusion;
all that afflict me are before you.
20 ὀνειδισμὸν προσεδόκησεν ἡ ψυχή μου καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν·
καὶ ὑπέμεινα συλλυπούμενον, καὶ οὐχ ὑπῆρξεν,
καὶ παρακαλοῦντας, καὶ οὐχ εὗρον.
  My soul has waited for reproach and misery;
and I waited for one to grieve with me, but there was none;
and for one to comfort me, but I found none.
21 καὶ ἔδωκαν εἰς τὸ βρῶμά μου χολὴν,
καὶ εἰς τὴν δίψαν μου ἐπότισάν με ὄξος.
  They gave [me] also gall for my food,
and made me drink vinegar for my thirst.
22 γενηθήτω ἡ τράπεζα αὐτῶν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν εἰς παγίδα,
καὶ εἰς ἀνταπόδοσιν καὶ εἰς σκάνδαλον·
  Let their table before them be for a snare,
and for a recompense, and for a stumbling-block.
23 σκοτισθήτωσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ βλέπειν,
καὶ τὸν νῶτον αὐτῶν διὰ παντὸς σύγκαμψον·
  Let their eyes be darkened that they should not see;
and bow down their back continually.
24 ἔκχεον ἐπ' αὐτοὺς τὴν ὀργήν σου,
καὶ ὁ θυμὸς τῆς ὀργῆς σου καταλάβοι αὐτούς.
  Pour out your wrath upon them,
and let the fury of your anger take hold on them.
25 γενηθήτω ἡ ἔπαυλις αὐτῶν ἠρημωμένη,
καὶ ἐν τοῖς σκηνώμασιν αὐτῶν μὴ ἔστω ὁ κατοικῶν·
  Let their habitation be made desolate;
and let there be no inhabitant in their tents:
26 ὅτι ὃν σὺ ἐπάταξας, αὐτοὶ κατεδίωξαν,
καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ ἄλγος τῶν τραυματιῶν σου προσέθηκαν.
  Because they persecuted him whom you have smitten;
and they have added to the grief of my wounds.
27 πρόσθες ἀνομίαν ἐπὶ τὴν ἀνομίαν αὐτῶν,
καὶ μὴ εἰσελθέτωσαν ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ σου·
  Add iniquity to their iniquity;
and let them not come into your righteousness.
28 ἐξαλειφθήτωσαν ἐκ βίβλου ζώντων,
καὶ μετὰ δικαίων μὴ γραφήτωσαν.
  Let them be blotted out of the book of the living,
and let them not be written with the righteous.
29 πτωχὸς καὶ ἀλγῶν εἰμι ἐγώ,
καὶ ἡ σωτηρία τοῦ προσώπου σου, ὁ θεός, ἀντελάβετό μου.
  I am poor and sorrowful;
but the salvation of your countenance has helped me.
30 αἰνέσω τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θεοῦ μετ' ᾠδῆς,
μεγαλυνῶ αὐτὸν ἐν αἰνέσει,
  I will praise the name of my God with a song,
I will magnify him with praise;
31 καὶ ἀρέσει τῷ θεῷ ὑπὲρ μόσχον νέον κέρατα ἐκφέροντα καὶ ὁπλάς.
  and [this] shall please God more than a young calf having horns and hoofs.
32 ἰδέτωσαν πτωχοὶ καὶ εὐφρανθήτωσαν·
ἐκζητήσατε τὸν θεόν, καὶ ζήσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν,
  Let the poor see and rejoice;
seek the Lord diligently, and you shall live.
33 ὅτι εἰσήκουσεν τῶν πενήτων ὁ κύριος,
καὶ τοὺς πεπεδημένους αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐξουδένωσεν.
  For the Lord hears the poor,
and does not set at nought his fettered ones.
34 αἰνεσάτωσαν αὐτὸν οἱ οὐρανοὶ καὶ ἡ γῆ,
θάλασσα καὶ πάντα τὰ ἕρποντα ἐν αὐτοῖς.
  Let the heavens and the earth raise him,
the sea, and all things moving in them.
35 ὅτι ὁ θεὸς σώσει τὴν Σιων, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήσονται αἱ πόλεις τῆς Ιουδαίας,
καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐκεῖ καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν αὐτήν·
  For God will save Sion, and the cities of Judea shall be built;
and [men] shall dwell there, and inherit it.
36 καὶ τὸ σπέρμα τῶν δούλων αὐτοῦ καθέξουσιν αὐτήν,
καὶ οἱ ἀγαπῶντες τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ κατασκηνώσουσιν ἐν αὐτῇ.
  And the seed of his servants shall possess it,
and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
