1 [Alleluja, reversionis Aggæi et Zachariæ]
   Beatus vir qui timet Dominum:
   in mandatis ejus volet nimis.
2  Potens in terra erit semen ejus;
   generatio [rectorum]1 benedicetur.
3  Gloria et divitiæ in domo ejus,
   et justitia ejus manet in sæculum sæculi.
4  Exortum est in tenebris lumen rectis:
   misericors, et miserator, et justus.
5  Jucundus homo qui miseretur et commodat;
   disponet sermones suos in judicio:
6  quia in æternum non commovebitur.
7  In memoria æterna erit justus;
   ab auditione mala non timebit.
   Paratum cor ejus sperare in Domino,
8  confirmatum est cor ejus;
   non commovebitur donec despiciat inimicos suos.
9  Dispersit, dedit pauperibus;
   justitia ejus manet in sæculum sæculi:
   cornu ejus exaltabitur in gloria.
10 Peccator videbit, et irascetur;
   dentibus suis fremet et tabescet:
   desiderium peccatorum peribit.
