1. For the leader; "upon the eighth." A psalm of David.

2. Help, LORD, for no one loyal remains; the faithful have vanished from the human race

3. Those who tell lies to one another speak with deceiving lips and a double heart.

4. May the LORD cut off all deceiving lips, and every boastful tongue,

5. Those who say, "By our tongues we prevail; when our lips speak, who can lord it over us?"

6. "Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan, I will now arise," says the LORD; "I will grant safety to whoever longs for it."

7. The promises of the LORD are sure, silver refined in a crucible, silver purified seven times.

8. LORD, protect us always; preserve us from this generation.

9. On every side the wicked strut; the shameless are extolled by all.





“O Senhor sempre orienta e chama; mas não se quer segui-lo e responder-lhe, pois só se vê os próprios interesses. Às vezes, pelo fato de se ouvir sempre a Sua voz, ninguém mais se apercebe dela; mas o Senhor ilumina e chama. São os homens que se colocam na posição de não conseguir mais escutar.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
