Text & English Translation

Dixit Dominus Domino meo:
sede a dextris meis.
Donec ponam inimicos tuos:
scabellum pedum tuorum.
Virgam virtutis tuae emittet Dominus ex Sion:
dominare in medio inimicorum tuorum.
Tecum principium in die virtutis tuae:
in splendoribus sanctorum ex utero
ante luciferum genui te.
Juravit Dominus et non pænitebit eum:
tu es sacerdos in æternum secundum ordinem
Dominus a dextris tuis:
confregit in die iræ suæ reges.
Iudicabit in nationonibus implebit ruinas:
conquassabit capita in terra multorum.
De torrente in via bibet:
propterea exaltabit caput.
Gloria Patri et Filio:
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper:
et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

The Lord said to my Lord:
sit thou at my right hand.
Until I make thy enemies:
a footstool at thy feet.
The Lord will send forth the sceptere of thy power out
of Zion:
rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.
With thee is the sovereignty in the day of thy strength:
in the brightness of the saints from the womb
before the morning star I have begotten thee.
The Lord hath sworn and he will not repent:
thou art a priest forever according to the order of
The Lord at thy right hand:
hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.
He shall judge among the nations, he shall fill with
he shall crush the heads in the land of many.
He shall drink of the torrent in the way:
therefore shall he lift up the head.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son:
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is and ever shall be:
world without end. Amen.
