This post is part of an ongoing series on the Scriptures of Saint Patrick of Ireland.
|Confessio 5 & Psalm 50:15|
|Patrick||O’Loughlin (145)||‘Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify’.|
|Bieler (60) & Conneely (30)||Invoca me in die tribulationis tuae et liberabo te et magnificabis me.|
|Vulgate (49:15)||Et invoca me in die tribulationis liberabo te et glorificabis me|
|b (5th c. Italy)||Et invoca me in die tribulationis et eximam te et glorificabi me|
|Anglo-Saxon Psalter (8th c.)||Invoca me in die tribulationis; eripam te, et magnificabis me.|
|Irish Psalter (8th-9th c.)||Et invoca me in die tribulationis; liberabo te, et glorificabis me.|
Here Patrick’s citation of the Psalms generally follows the Irish Psalter, though not perfectly. While he follows the form later found in the Irish Psalter for the first part of this citation—especially the wording through liberabo te—he uses different terminology at the end of the citation (that found in the Anglo-Saxon Psalter: magnificabis). Obviously, gloficabis and magnificabis represent similar ideas, so Patrick’s apparent blending of text-types could easily be explained by reliance on his memory here.
