1. A psalm for Asaph. God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods.

2. How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked?

3. Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor.

4. Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner.

5. They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved.

6. I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.

7. But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes.

8. Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.

“O amor é a rainha das virtudes. Como as pérolas se ligam por um fio, assim as virtudes, pelo amor. Fogem as pérolas quando se rompe o fio. Assim também as virtudes se desfazem afastando-se o amor”. São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
