1. Alleluia! How blessed is anyone who fears Yahweh, who delights in his commandments!

2. His descendants shall be powerful on earth, the race of the honest shall receive blessings:

3. Riches and wealth for his family; his uprightness stands firm for ever.

4. For the honest he shines as a lamp in the dark, generous, tender-hearted, and upright.

5. All goes well for one who lends generously, who is honest in all his dealing;

6. for all time to come he will not stumble, for all time to come the upright will be remembered.

7. Bad news holds no fears for him, firm is his heart, trusting in Yahweh.

8. His heart held steady, he has no fears, till he can gloat over his enemies.

9. To the needy he gives without stint, his uprightness stands firm for ever; his reputation is founded on strength.

10. The wicked are vexed at the sight, they grind their teeth and waste away. The desires of the wicked will be frustrated.





“Menosprezai vossas tentações e não vos demoreis nelas. Imaginai estar na presença de Jesus. O crucificado se lança em vossos braços e mora no vosso coração. Beijai-Lhe a chaga do lado, dizendo: ‘Aqui está minha esperança; a fonte viva da minha felicidade. Seguro-vos, ó Jesus, e não me aparto de vós, até que me tenhais posto a salvo’”. São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
