1. The LORD answered me when I called in my distress:

2. LORD, deliver me from lying lips, from treacherous tongues.

3. What will the Lord inflict on you, O treacherous tongue, and what more besides?

4. A warrior's sharpened arrows and fiery coals of brush wood!

5. Alas, I was an alien in Meshech, I lived near the tents of Kedar!

6. Too long did I live among those who hated peace.

7. When I spoke of peace, they were for war.

“Quanto mais te deixares enraizar na santa humildade, tanto mais íntima será a comunicação da tua alma com Deus”. São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
