Psalm 109
(Douay-Rheims Version).

Dixit Dominus.

Christ's Exaltation And Everlasting Priesthood.

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 poenitebit eum:
Tu es sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech.

Dominus a dextris tuis;
confregit in die irae suae reges.

Judicabit in nationibus; implebit ruinas,
conquassabit capita in terra multorum,

de torrente in via bibet;
propterea exaltabit caput.

The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand:
Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.

The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion:
rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.

With thee is the principality in the day of thy strength: in the brightness of the saints:
from the womb before the day star I begot thee.

The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent:
Thou art a Priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.

The Lord at thy right hand
hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins:
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.
