1. LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many [are] they that rise up against me.

2. Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for him in God. Selah.

3. But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

6. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.

7. Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies [upon] the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8. Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon thy people. Selah.




“A natureza humana também quer a sua parte. Até Maria, Mãe de Jesus, que sabia que por meio de Sua morte a humanidade seria redimida, chorou e sofreu – e como sofreu!” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
