Latin Vulgate, Psalmi 128 (Psalms 128)

1   canticum graduum saepe expugnaverunt me a iuventute mea dicat nunc Israhel

2   saepe expugnaverunt me a iuventute mea etenim non potuerunt mihi

3   supra dorsum meum fabricabantur peccatores prolongaverunt iniquitatem suam

4   Dominus iustus concidet cervices peccatorum

5   confundantur et convertantur retrorsum omnes qui oderunt Sion

6   fiant sicut faenum tectorum quod priusquam evellatur exaruit

7   de quo non implevit manum suam qui metit et sinum suum qui manipulos colligit

8   et non dixerunt qui praeteribant benedictio Domini super vos benediximus vobis in nomine Domini

The Latin Vulgate was translated by Jerome (c. 347-420), who began his work in 382. In 386 he moved to Bethlehem and worked on the Old Testament. He began using the Greek LXX, but quickly decided to work directly from the Hebrew. In 405 the Old Testament, as well as the rest of the New Testament was completed. Due to older Latin texts in circulation, Jerome's work was not widely popular until the ninth century. The influence of Jerome's Bible was quite extensive, and versions such as the Douay-Rheims were direct translations from the Vulgate.
