2. Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy, for my soul takes refuge in you; I will find shelter in the shadow of your wings till the disaster has passed.

3. I call on God the Most High, on God who has done everything for me:

4. may he send from heaven a savior and put my oppressors to shame. May God send me his love and faithfulness.

5. I lie prostrate in the midst of lions that greedily devour people, their teeth are pointed spears and arrows, their tongues, sharpened swords.

6. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Your glory be over all the earth!

7. They have set a snare for my steps; my soul was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit along my path, but they themselves fell into it.

8. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and make music.

9. Awake, my soul, awake, O harp and lyre! I will wake the dawn.

10. I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praise to you among the nations.

11. For your love reaches to the heavens, and your faithfullness, to the clouds.

12. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your Glory be over all the earth!

“Todas as percepções humanas, de onde quer que venham, incluem o bem e o mal. É necessário saber determinar e assimilar todo o bem e oferecê-lo a Deus, e eliminar todo o mal.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
