1. The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand till I make your foes your footstool."

2. From Zion the Lord will extend your mighty scepter and you will rule in the midst of your enemies.

3. Yours is royal dignity from the day you were born in holy majesty. Like dew from the womb of the dawn, I have begotten you.

4. The Lord has sworn, and he will not take back his word: "You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."

5. The Lord is at your right hand to crush the kings on his day of wrath.

6. He will judge the nations, heaping up corpses, smashing heads on the wide plain.

7. He has lapped up the water from the brook, this is why he will lift up his head.

“Para que se preocupar com o caminho pelo qual Jesus quer que você chegue à pátria celeste – pelo deserto ou pelo campo – quando tanto por um como por outro se chegará da mesma forma à beatitude eterna?” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
