1. Often have they fought against me from my youth, let Israel now say.

2. Often have they fought against me from my youth: but they could not prevail over me.

3. The wicked have wrought upon my back: they have lengthened their iniquity.

4. The Lord who is just will cut the necks of sinners:

5. let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Sion.

6. Let them be as grass on the tops of houses: which withered before it be plucked up:

7. Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand: nor he that gathereth sheaves his bosom.

8. And they that have passed by have not said: The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.




“Que Maria sempre enfeite sua alma com as flores e o perfume de novas virtudes e coloque a mão materna sobre sua cabeça. Fique sempre e cada vez mais perto de nossa Mãe celeste, pois ela é o mar que deve ser atravessado para se atingir as praias do esplendor eterno no reino do amanhecer.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
