Dixit Dominus. Christ's exaltation and everlasting priesthood.
 The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
Psalmus David. Dixit Dominus Domino meo : Sede a dextris meis, donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum.
 The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.
Virgam virtutis tuae emittet Dominus ex Sion : dominare in medio inimicorum tuorum.
 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.
Tecum principium in die virtutis tuae in splendoribus sanctorum; ex utero, ante luciferum, genui te.
 The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.
Juravit Dominus, et non poenitebit eum : Tu es sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech.
 The Lord at thy right hand hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.
Dominus a dextris tuis; confregit in die irae suae reges.
 He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins: he shall crush the heads in the land of the many.
Judicabit in nationibus; implebit ruinas, conquassabit capita in terra multorum,
 He shall drink of the torrent in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
de torrente in via bibet; propterea exaltabit caput.
