1. A psalm of the Korahites. A song. The LORD loves the city founded on holy mountains,

2. Loves the gates of Zion more than any dwelling in Jacob.

3. Glorious things are said of you, O city of God! Selah

4. From Babylon and Egypt I count those who acknowledge the LORD. Philistia, Ethiopia, Tyre, of them it can be said: "This one was born there."

5. But of Zion it must be said: "They all were born here." The Most High confirms this;

6. the Lord notes in the register of the peoples: "This one was born here." Selah

7. So all sing in their festive dance: "Within you is my true home."

“Se tanta atenção é dada aos bens desta Terra, quanto mais se deve dar aos do Céu? Faça, portanto, uma boa leitura espiritual, a santa meditação, o exame de consciência, e fará progresso na perfeição cristã e no amor de Jesus.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
