Benedícite Dóminum, omnes elécti ejus :
ágite dies lætítiæ, et confitémini illi.
(Sap. 3: 1-6) Justórum autem ánimæ in manu Dei sunt,
et non tanget illos torméntum mortis.
2. Visi sunt óculis insipiéntium mori:
et æstimáta est afflíctio éxitus illórum:
3. Et quod a nobis est iter extermínium;
illi autem sunt in pace.
4. Etsi coram homínibus torménta passi sunt,
spes illórum immortalitáte plena est.
5. In paucis vexáti, in multis bene disponéntur,
quóniam Deus tentávit eos, et invénit illos dignos se.
6. Tamquam aurum in fornáce probávit illos,
et quasi holocáusti hóstiam accépit illos,
et in témpore erit respéctus illórum.
7. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
8. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
9. (Sap 3: 7-9) Fulgébunt justi,
et tamquam scintíllæ in arundinéto discúrrent.
10. Judicábunt natiónes, et dominabúntur pópulis,
et regnábit Dóminus illórum in perpétuum.
11. Qui confídunt in illo intélligent veritátem,
et fidéles in dilectióne acquiéscent illi:
12. Quóniam donum
et pax est eléctis ejus.
13. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
14. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
15. (Sap. 10: 17-21) Réddidit justis mercédem labórum suórum,
et dedúxit illos in via mirábili:
16. Et fuit illis in velaménto diéi,
et in luce stellárum per noctem:
17. Tránstulit illos per Mare Rubrum,
et transvéxit illos per aquam nímiam.
18. Inimícos autem illórum demérsit in mare,
et ab altitúdine inferórum edúxit illos.
19. Ideo justi tulérunt spólia impiórum,
et decantavérunt, Dómine, nomen sanctum tuum,
20. Et victrícem manum tuam laudavérunt páriter:
quóniam sapiéntia apéruit os mutórum,
et linguas infántium fecit disértas.
21. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
22. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Benedícite Dóminum, omnes elécti ejus :
ágite dies lætítiæ, et confitémini illi.
Bless the Lord, all his chosen ones,
keep holiday, and extol Him.
(Wis. 3: 1-6) But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment will ever touch them.
2. In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died,
and their departure was thought to be a disaster,
3. and their going from us to be their destruction;
but they are at peace.
4. For though in the sight of others they were punished,
their hope is full of immortality.
5. Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good,
because God tested them and found them worthy of himself;
6. Like gold in the furnace he tried them,
and like a sacrificial burnt offering he accepted them.
In the time of their freed.
7. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
8. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
9. (Wis. 3: 7-9) In the time of their visitation they will shine forth,
and will run like sparks through the stubble.
10. They will govern nations and rule over peoples,
and the Lord will reign over them forever.
11. For those who trust in him understand the truth
and the faithful will abide with him in love,
12. because grace and mercy
are upon his elect.
13. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
14. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
15. (Wis. 10: 17:21) She gave holy men the reward of their labors;
she guided them along a marvelous way,
16. and became a shelter to them by day,
and a starry flame through the night.
17. She brought them over the Red Sea,
and led them through deep waters;
18. but she drowned their enemies,
and cast them up from the depth of the sea.
19. Therefore the righteous plundered the ungodly;
they sang hymns, O Lord, to thy holy name,
20. and praised with one accord thy defending hand,
because wisdom opened the mouth of the dumb,
and made the tongues of babes speak clearly.
21. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
22. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Bless the Lord, all his chosen ones,
keep holiday, and extol Him.
