Transcription and translation by Sarah Elise Williams, 2014

Item Identifier: ULRB_2006_MSS_11

From the Vulgate: Psalm 24: 16-22; Antiphon; Psalm 26: 1-4

The fragment at the top of the recto is from earlier verses of the 24th Psalm - the end of verse 15: "My eyes are ever towards the Lord, for he shall free/snatch my feet from the snare."

queo pedes meos |
Respice in me & miserere m|ei quia unicus & pauper sum | ego.
Tribulationes cordis mei m|ultiplicatae sunt de necessitatib(us)|meis erue me|
Vide humilitatem mea & | laborem meum & dimitte uni|versa delicta mea.
Respice inimicos meos quonia(m)| multiplicati sunt, & odio iniquio | oderunt me. |
Custodi animam meam & | erue me non erubescam quonia(m) | speravi in te |
Innocentes & recti adhesereru(n)t| mihi : quia sustinui te. |
Libera deus Israel ex omnib(us)| tribulationibus suis|

Requiem: A: Delicta iuve(n)tu|tis mee, & ignorantias meas | ne memineris domine.
A: Cre|do videre. psalmus |

Dominus illuminatio | mea & salus mea que(m)| timebo.|
Dominus protector vite mee| a quo trepidabo|
Dum appropriant super me| noncentes: ut edant carnes meas |
Qui tribulant me inimici mei | ipsi infirmati sunt, & cecideru(n)t |
Si consistant adversum me | castra: non timebit cor meum |
Si exurgat adversum me pre|lium: in hoc ego sperabo |
Unam petii a domino ha(n)c re|quiram, ut inhabitem in domo. | domini omnibus diebus vite mee|

Ut videam voluntate(m) domini | et visitem templum eius.

[fragment from Vulgate Psalm 23]
Look upon me and pity me for I am alone, and poor am I.
The tribulations of my spirit have been multiplied, save me from my necessities.
Look upon my humiliation and my suffering and forgive me all of my transgressions.
Look upon my enemies for they are many and they have hated me with an unjust hatred
Watch over my soul and deliver me, let me not be ashamed for I have trusted in You.
The innocent and righteous cling to me because I have attended You.

Requiem: Antiphon
Remember not, Lord, the sins of my youth and my ignorances
Credo Videre (this is a hymn associated with the 26th Psalm)

The Lord is my light and my salvation, who shall I fear?
The lord is the protector of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
While the wicked draw up near me to devour my flesh
My enemies who trouble me have themselves been weakened and have fallen.
If the camp stands fast against me, my heart will not fear
if the battle should rise up against me, in this I will trust.
One thing I have asked from the Lord, I will require this from You.
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

That I may see the good will of the Lord and visit in his temple
