1. Unto the end, a psalm for David. Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my innocence: and I have put my trust in the Lord, and shall not be weakened.

2. Prove me, O Lord, and try me; burn my reins and my heart.

3. For thy mercy is before my eyes; and I am well pleased with thy truth.

4. I have not sat with the council of vanity: neither will I go in with the doers of unjust things.

5. I have hated the assembly of the malignant; and with the wicked I will not sit.

6. I will wash my hands among the innocent; and will compass thy altar, O Lord:

7. That I may hear the voice of thy praise: and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house; and the place where thy glory dwelleth.

9. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with bloody men:

10. In whose hands are iniquities: their right hand is filled with gifts.

11. But as for me, I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me.

12. My foot hath stood in the direct way: in the churches I will bless thee, O Lord.

“Quando a videira se separa da estaca que a sustenta, cai, e ao ficar na terra apodrece com todos os cachos que possui. Alerta, portanto, o demônio não dorme!” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
