Virtutem colo

Cicero uses the sentence "virtutem colo" with the same meaning: I strive for a life of virtue

disagree  DR. RICHARD BAVRY (X): more bad Latin! Nominative case!

  -> Nominative cannot be used after the verb "colo" = I cultivate etc, must be followed by accusative. It is Cicero's

agree  giogi: Even because the subject is I, so virtue is to be necessarily in the accusative!it should be better thinking over text!!

Jerome's Latin Vulgate (405 A.D.)
Psalms 100

The Book of Psalms
Return to Index

Chapter 101
1 oratio pauperis cum anxius fuerit et coram Domino effuderit precem suam

2 Domine exaudi orationem meam et clamor meus ad te veniat

3 non avertas faciem tuam a me in quacumque die tribulor inclina ad me aurem tuam in quacumque die invocavero te velociter exaudi me

4 quia defecerunt sicut fumus dies mei et ossa mea sicut gremium aruerunt

5 percussum est ut faenum et aruit cor meum quia oblitus sum comedere panem meum

6 a voce gemitus mei adhesit os meum carni meae

7 similis factus sum pelicano solitudinis factus sum sicut nycticorax in domicilio

8 vigilavi et factus sum sicut passer solitarius in tecto

9 tota die exprobrabant mihi inimici mei et qui laudabant me adversus me iurabant

10 quia cinerem tamquam panem manducavi et poculum meum cum fletu miscebam

11 a facie irae et indignationis tuae quia elevans adlisisti me

12 dies mei sicut umbra declinaverunt et ego sicut faenum arui

13 tu autem Domine in aeternum permanes et memoriale tuum in generationem et generationem

14 tu exsurgens misereberis Sion quia tempus miserendi eius quia venit tempus

15 quoniam placuerunt servis tuis lapides eius et terrae eius miserebuntur

16 et timebunt gentes nomen Domini et omnes reges terrae gloriam tuam

17 quia aedificabit Dominus Sion et videbitur in gloria sua

18 respexit in orationem humilium et non sprevit precem eorum

19 scribantur haec in generationem alteram et populus qui creabitur laudabit Dominum

20 quia prospexit de excelso sancto suo Dominus de caelo in terram aspexit

21 ut audiret gemitum conpeditorum ut solvat filios interemptorum

22 ut adnuntiet in Sion nomen Domini et laudem suam in Hierusalem

23 in conveniendo populos in unum et reges ut serviant Domino

24 respondit ei in *via virtutis* suae paucitatem dierum meorum nuntia mihi
