1. A psalm of David. For remembrance.

2. LORD, punish me no more in your anger; in your wrath do not chastise me!

3. Your arrows have sunk deep in me; your hand has come down upon me.

4. My flesh is afflicted because of your anger; my frame aches because of my sin.

5. My iniquities overwhelm me, a burden beyond my strength.

6. Foul and festering are my sores because of my folly.

7. I am stooped and deeply bowed; all day I go about mourning.

8. My loins burn with fever; my flesh is afflicted.

9. I am numb and utterly crushed; I wail with anguish of heart.

10. My Lord, my deepest yearning is before you; my groaning is not hidden from you.

11. My heart shudders, my strength forsakes me; the very light of my eyes has failed.

12. Friends and companions shun my pain; my neighbors stand far off.

13. Those who seek my life lay snares for me; they seek my misfortune, they speak of ruin; they plot treachery all the day.

14. But I am like the deaf, hearing nothing, like the dumb, saying nothing,

15. Like someone who does not hear, who has no answer ready.

16. LORD, I wait for you; O Lord, my God, answer me.

17. For I fear they will gloat, exult over me if I stumble.

18. I am very near to falling; my pain is with me always.

19. I acknowledge my guilt and grieve over my sin.

20. But many are my foes without cause, a multitude of enemies without reason,

21. Repaying me evil for good, harassing me for pursuing good.

22. Forsake me not, O LORD; my God, be not far from me!

23. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my salvation!

“Nunca vá se deitar sem antes examinar a sua consciência sobre o dia que passou. Enderece todos os seus pensamentos a Deus, consagre-lhe todo o seu ser e também todos os seus irmãos. Ofereça à glória de Deus o repouso que você vai iniciar e não esqueça do seu Anjo da Guarda que está sempre com você.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
