[1] On the first day of the week, a psalm for David. The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof: the world, and all they that dwell therein.
Prima sabbati. Psalmus David. Domini est terra, et plenitudo ejus; orbis terrarum, et universi qui habitant in eo.

[2] For he hath founded it upon the seas; and hath prepared it upon the rivers.
Quia ipse super maria fundavit eum, et super flumina praeparavit eum.

[3] Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord: or who shall stand in his holy place?
Quis ascendet in montem Domini? aut quis stabit in loco sancto ejus?

[4] The innocent in hands, and clean of heart, who hath not taken his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbour.
Innocens manibus et mundo corde, qui non accepit in vano animam suam, nec juravit in dolo proximo suo.

[5] He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour.
Hic accipiet benedictionem a Domino, et misericordiam a Deo salutari suo.

[6] This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the face of the God of Jacob.
Haec est generatio quaerentium eum, quaerentium faciem Dei Jacob.

Attollite portas, principes, vestras, et elevamini, portae aeternales, et introibit rex gloriae.

[8] Who is this King of Glory? the Lord who is strong and mighty: the Lord mighty in battle.
Quis est iste rex gloriae? Dominus fortis et potens, Dominus potens in praelio.

[9] Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in.
Attollite portas, principes, vestras, et elevamini, portae aeternales, et introibit rex gloriae.
