David psalmus
A psalm of David


Dixit Dominus Domino meo sede a dextris meis

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand,

donec ponam inimicos tuos scabillum pedum tuorum

until I make thine enemies thy footstool.


virgam virtutis tuae emittet Dominus ex Sion

The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion:

dominare in medio inimicorum tuorum

rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.


tecum principium in die virtutis tuae

Thy people [shall be] willing in the day of thy power

in splendoribus sanctorum

in the beauties of holiness

ex utero ante luciferum genui te

from the womb of the morning:


iuravit Dominus et non paenitebit eum

The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent,

tu es sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech

Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.


Dominus a dextris tuis confregit in die irae suae reges

The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings

in the day of his wrath.


iudicabit in nationibus implebit cadavera

He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill [the places] with

the dead bodies;

conquassabit capita in terra multorum

he shall wound the heads over many countries.


de torrente in via bibet

He shall drink of the brook in the way:

propterea exaltabit caput

therefore shall he lift up the head.
