1. Alleluia! Blessed is the one who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commands.

2. His children will be powerful on earth; the upright's offspring will be blessed.

3. Wealth and riches are for his family, there his integrity will remain.

4. He is for the righteous a light in darkness, he is kind, merciful and upright.

5. It will be well with him who lends freely, who leads a life of justice and honesty.

6. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered and loved forever.

7. He has no fear of evil news, for his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

8. His heart is confident, he needs not fear, he shall prevail over his foes at the end.

9. He gives generously to the poor, his merits will last forever and his head will be raised in honor.

10. The wicked will see this and be furious: they will gnash their teeth in seething envy. The desire of the wicked will fail.

“A pessoa que nunca medita é como alguém que nunca se olha no espelho e, assim, não se cuida e sai desarrumada. A pessoa que medita e dirige seus pensamentos a Deus, que é o espelho de sua alma, procura conhecer seus defeitos, tenta corrigi-los, modera seus impulsos e põe em ordem sua consciência.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
