Song of Solomon 1:6-7 [Latin: Canticum Canticorum 1:5-6]

Do not consider me that I am brown, because the sun hath altered my colour: the sons of my mother have fought against me, they have made me the keeper in the vineyards: my vineyard I have not kept.

shew me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou liest in the midday, lest I begin to wander after the flocks of thy companions.

Nolite me considerare quod fusca sim, quia decoloravit me sol. Filii matris meae pugnaverunt contra me

Vineam meam non custodivi. Indica mihi quem diligit anima mea, ubi pascas, ubi cubes in meridie, ne vagari incipiam post greges sodalium tuorum.

“I Thirst” The Vinegar Given to Jesus – James Tissot

Psalm 69:20-21 [Latin Vulgate: Psalm 68:21-22]

20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Improperium expectavit cor meum et miseriam et sustinui qui simul mecum contristaretur et non fuit; consolantem me quaesivi et non inveni. Et dederunt in escam meam fel, et in siti mea potaverunt me aceto.


Improperium expectavit cor meum (1593) in Offertoria totius anni, no. 24, composed by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
