Verse Indeterminate Saxon



fore ænigre         egesan næfde,
ne him fultum þær         fæstne gelyfde;
ac he on his welan spede         wræste getruwode,
and on idel gylp         ealra geornost.
5
Ic þonne swa elebeam         up weaxende
on godes huse         ece gewene,
and on milde mod         mines drihtnes,
and me þæt to worulde         wat to helpe.
Ic þe andette         awa to feore
10
on þære worulde         ðe þu geworhtest her;
forþan þu eart se gooda,         gleaw on gesyhðe,
þe þinne held curan,         þara haligra.



The Paris Psalter: Psalm 52

Verse Indeterminate Saxon


On his heortan cwæð         unhydig sum,
ungleawlice,         þætte god nære;
heo onsceoniendlice         syndon gewordene
and heora willan         wraðe besmitene.
5



Næs þa goddoend         se þe god wiste,
ne an furðum         ealra wære.
þa of heofenum beseah         halig drihten
ofer manna bearn,         hwæðer his mihta ða
andgyt ænig         ealra hæfde,
10


oððe god wolde         georne secan.
Ealle heo on ane         idelnesse
symle besegan;         þa wæs soð nan mann
þe god wolde         georne wyrcan;
ne an furþum         ealra wære.
15
Ac ge þæs ealle ne magon         andgyt habban
þe unrihtes         elne wyrceað
and min folc fretað         swa fælne hlaf,
ne hio god wyllað         georne ciegan;
þær hio forhtigað,         frecnes egesan
20
æniges ne þurfon.        
Forþam manna ban         mihtig drihten
liste tosceadeð,         þa him liciað;
beoð þa gehyrwede         þe forhycggeað god.
Hwylc Israela         ece hælu
25
syleð of Sione         nymðe sylfa god,
þonne he his folc         fægere alyseð
of hæftnyde,         halig drihten?
þonne Iacob byð         on glædum sælum
and Israelas         ealle bliðe.
