0. To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song.

1. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2. Therefore we will not fear though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;

3. though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. [Selah]

4. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.

5. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early.

6. The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

7. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. [Selah]

8. Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has wrought desolations in the earth.

9. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, he burns the chariots with fire!

10. "Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!"

11. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. [Selah]

“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
