Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 109

1    The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
2    The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.
3    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.
4    The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.
5    The Lord at thy right hand hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.
6    He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins: he shall crush the heads in the land of the many.
7    He shall drink of the torrent in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
