Latin Vulgate, Psalmi 51 (Psalms 51)

1   in finem intellectus David

2   cum venit Doec Idumeus et adnuntiavit Saul et dixit venit David in domo Achimelech

3   quid gloriatur in malitia qui potens est iniquitate

4   tota die iniustitiam cogitavit lingua tua sicut novacula acuta fecisti dolum

5   dilexisti malitiam super benignitatem iniquitatem magis quam loqui aequitatem diapsalma

6   dilexisti omnia verba praecipitationis linguam dolosam

7   propterea Deus destruet te in finem evellet te et emigrabit te de tabernaculo et radicem tuam de terra viventium diapsalma

8   videbunt iusti et timebunt et super eum ridebunt et dicent

9   ecce homo qui non posuit Deum adiutorem suum sed speravit in multitudine divitiarum suarum et praevaluit in vanitate sua

10  ego autem sicut oliva fructifera in domo Dei speravi in misericordia Dei in aeternum et in saeculum saeculi

11  confitebor tibi in saeculum quia fecisti et expectabo nomen tuum quoniam bonum in conspectu sanctorum tuorum

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.
