Quamdiu / usquoque

Hello all,

Does anyone know where ‘Quamdiu, Domine…’ comes from?
As far as I can see, Psalm 12 (13) is ‘Usquequo, Domine…’

Is it ‘Quamdiu Domine’ in a text of the Sacred Liturgy but not the actual Scripture?

Thanks.

It could be part of the Vetus Latina, which existed before St. Jerome’s Vulgate.

Thanks, Catholig.

(I suppose this is a fairly obscure question that would need some sort of Latin expert to answer it fully.)

Try Augustine in Contra Gaudentium Donatistarum episcopum, I, in paraphrase of Rev. 6:10 as he received that text.

I would guess that, or any of several other Latin Psalters (the only ones I have easy access to are the Gallican (I presume) (usquequo) and the Pian (quousque).

Not a Latin expert, in spite of all his wishing
