That is Psalms 27:1, I think. You'll find the Vulgate [a Latin Bible] somewhere on the web.<br /><br />cheers,<br />Paul

Dominus inluminatio mea et salus mea, quem timebo ? Dominus protector vitae meae, a quo trepidabo ?<br /><br />It's Psalm 26 of the Vulgate (27 of the Hebraic Bible)<br /><br />See http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/bible/psalms.html#26

Thanks, Skylax<br />I can't explain getting 27 for 26... podgy fingers and a small keyboard would be good but carelessness is more likely!<br /><br />cheers,<br />Paul

No, no : there is a variation in the numbering of Psalms.<br />In fact, Psalms 9 of the Vulgate was (later? in an other edition?) split into two psalms, accordingly numbered 9 et 10.
