Translation

of pestilence. But his will is in the law of the lord: and in this law he shall meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree that is planted near/ running waters: that shall produce his fruit/ in his due season. And his leaf shall not fall:/ and all whatever he shall do shall prosper./ Not so the wicked not so: but [they are] just like the dust that/ the wind drives from the face of the earth. Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgement: nor sinners in the council/ of the just. Since the lord knows/ the way of the just and the way of the wicked shall perish./


Psalm 2
Why have the nations raged

WHY/ have the nations raged: and/ the peoples/ contemplated/ worthless things. The kings of the earth/ stood up/

dra pestilenti[a]e non sedit. Sed in lege d[omi]ni / voluntas eius: et in lege ei[us] meditabit[ur] die ac nocte. [E]t erit tanqua[m] lignu[m] quod plantatu[m] est secus / decursus aquaru[m]: quod fructu[m] suum dabit / in tempore suo. Et folium eius non defluet: / et omnia qu[a]ecunq[ue]; faciet prosperabuntur. / Non sic impii non sic: sed tanquam pluvis que[m] / proicit ventus a facie terr[a]e. Ideo non resur/gunt impii in iudicio: neq[ue] peccatores in con/silio iustorum. Quoniam novit dominus / via[m] iustoru[m] et iter impiorum peribit. /
Quare fremue/runt gentes
QUARE/ fremuerunt / gentes: et / populi / meditati / sunt in/ania. Adstiterunt / reges t[er]r[a]e /
