1. Of David. Grant me justice, LORD! I have walked without blame. In the LORD I have trusted; I have not faltered.

2. Test me, LORD, and try me; search my heart and mind.

3. Your love is before my eyes; I walk guided by your faithfulness.

4. I do not sit with deceivers, nor with hypocrites do I mingle.

5. I hate the company of evildoers; with the wicked I do not sit.

6. I will wash my hands in innocence and walk round your altar, LORD,

7. Lifting my voice in thanks, recounting all your wondrous deeds.

8. LORD, I love the house where you dwell, the tenting-place of your glory.

9. Do not take me away with sinners, nor my life with the violent.

10. Their hands carry out their schemes; their right hands are full of bribes.

11. But I walk without blame; redeem me, be gracious to me!

“A meditação não é um meio para chegar a Deus, mas um fim. A finalidade da meditação é o amor a Deus e ao próximo.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
