0. A Song of Ascents.

1. In my distress I cry to the LORD, that he may answer me:

2. "Deliver me, O LORD, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue."

3. What shall be given to you? And what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?

4. A warrior's sharp arrows, with glowing coals of the broom tree!

5. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!

6. Too long have I had my dwelling among those who hate peace.

7. I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war!





“Não se desencoraje, pois, se na alma existe o contínuo esforço de melhorar, no final o Senhor a premia fazendo nela florir, de repente, todas as virtudes como num jardim florido.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
