Vidébunt fáciem Dómini, et nomen eius in fróntibus eórum

Now we proceed to the Reading, or the Lectio brevis, of Sunday Night Prayer. The text is from Rev. 22, 4-5.

Vidébunt fáciem Dómini, et nomen eius in fróntibus eórum. They will see the Lord’s face, and his name will be on their foreheads.

Videbunt faciem = they will see the face. From video, ere, to see. Future tense.

Domini = Of the Lord, or, the Lord’s.

nomen eius = His name.

in frontibus eorum = on their foreheads. The word is or est (or erit, as the case may be) is implied here.
