Many old bibles were on display, in different languages, and on the walls there were some blown-up copies from a medieval illustrated codex.
One in particular caught my attention and I made some photo's of it.
Most of the text I identified as Psalm 92 (which is about floods...), but this word "Adlandes" in the first line (in red letters) puzzles me.
(Or is it "ad-laudes"?) Can anyone clarify this?
Deus in Adlandes ???

Laus cantici ipsi David,
in die ante sabbatum,
quando fundata est terra.
Praise in the way of a canticle, for David himself,
on the day before the sabbath,
when the earth was founded.
1 Dominus regnavit,
decorem indutus est:
indutus est Dominus fortitudinem,
et præcinxit se.
Etenim firmavit orbem terræ,
qui non commovebitur.
The Lord has reigned,
he is clothed with beauty:
the Lord is clothed with strength,
and has girded himself.
For he has established the world
which shall not be moved.
2 Parata sedes tua ex tunc;
a sæculo tu es.
2 My throne is prepared from of old:
you are from everlasting.
3 Elevaverunt flumina, Domine,
elevaverunt flumina vocem suam;
elevaverunt flumina fluctus suos,
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord:
the floods have lifted up their voice.
The floods have lifted up their waves,
4 a vocibus aquarum multarum.
Mirabiles elationes maris;
mirabilis in altis Dominus.
4 with the noise of many waters.
Wonderful are the surges of the sea:
wonderful is the Lord on high.
5 Testimonia tua credibilia facta sunt nimis;
domum tuam decet sanctitudo,
Domine, in longitudinem dierum.
5 Your testimonies have become exceedingly credible:
holiness becomes your house,
O Lord, unto length of days.
