Ant. Dominus dixit ad me

Psalmus 2.
Psalm 2.
2:1. Quare fremuérunt Gentes : * et pópuli meditáti sunt inánia? 1. Why have the Gentiles raged, * and the people devised vain things?
2:2. Astitérunt reges terræ,
et príncipes convenérunt in unum * advérsus Dóminum, et advérsus Christum ejus.
2. The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, * against the Lord and against his Christ.
2:3. Dirumpámus víncula eórum : * et projiciámus a nobis jugum iprum. 3. Let us break their bonds asunder: * and let us cast away their yoke from us.
2:4. Qui hábitat in cælis, irridébit eos : * et Dóminus subsannábit eos. 4. He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: * and the Lord shall deride them.
2:5. Tunc loquétur ad eos in ira sua, * et in furóre suo conturbábit eos. 5. Then shall he speak to them in his anger, * and trouble them in his rage.
2:6. Ego autem constitútus sum Rex ab eo
super Sion montem sanctum ejus, * prædicans præcéptum ejus.
6. But I am appointed king by him over Sion his holy mountain, * preaching his commandment.
2:7. Dóminus dixit ad me : * Fílius meus es tu, ego hódie génui te. 7. The Lord hath said to me: * Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.
2:8. Póstula a me,
et dabo tibi Gentes hereditátem tuam, * et possessiónem tuam términos terræ.
8. Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, * and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
2:9. Reges eos in virga férrea, * et tamquam vas fíguli confrínges eos. 9. Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, * and shalt break them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10. Et nunc, reges, intelgite : * erudímini, qui judicátis terram. 10. And now, O ye kings, understand: * receive instruction, you that judge the earth.
2:11. Servíte Dómino in tire : * et exsultáte ei cum trere. 11. Serve ye the Lord with fear: * and rejoice unto him with trembling.
2:12. Apprehéndite disciplínam,
nequándo irascátur minus, * et pereátis de via justa.
12. Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, * and you perish from the just way.
2:13. Cum exárserit in brevi ira ejus : * beáti omnes qui confídunt in eo. 13. When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time, * blessed are all they that trust in him.
V. Glória Patri, et lio, * et Spirítui Sancto. V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen. R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
