29 gennaio 2024 Sono trascorsi dieci anni e mezzo dal sequestro di Padre Paolo, che il Dio dell’Amore ci accompagni nella sofferenza, ci doni la speranza e protegga tutti i suoi figli ovunque dispersi in zone di guerra

Salmo 31
1 Canto delle ascensioni. Di Davide.
Signore, non si inorgoglisce il mio cuore
e non si leva con superbia il mio sguardo;
non vado in cerca di cose grandi,
superiori alle mie forze.
2 Io sono tranquillo e sereno
come bimbo svezzato in braccio a sua madre,
come un bimbo svezzato è l’anima mia.
3 Speri Israele nel Signore,
ora e sempre.

Psaume 131
1 Chant des montées, de David.
Seigneur, je n’ai pas le cœur orgueilleux ni le regard hautain,
et je ne m’occupe pas de choses trop grandes et trop élevées pour moi.
2 Loin de là, j’ai l’âme calme et tranquille,
comme un enfant sevré qui est auprès de sa mère ;
j’ai l’âme comme un enfant sevré.
3 Israël, mets ton espoir dans le Seigneur,
dès maintenant et à jamais !

Psalm 131
1 A Song of degrees of David.
Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty:
neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother:
my soul is even as a weaned child.
3 Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.

مزمور ١٣١
١ تَرْنِيمَةٌ لِلصُّعُودِ إلَى الهَيْكَلِ لِدَاوُدَ

يَا اللهُ، مَا أنَا بِالمُتَكَبِّرِ أوِ المُنتَفِخِ.
وَفِي أُمُورٍ أعْظَمَ مِنِّي وَمَسَائِلَ عَوِيصَةٍ
لَا أُقحِمُ نَفْسِي.
٢ لَكِنْ هَا أنَا هَدَّأتُ نَفْسِي،
سَكَّتُّهَا كَأُمٍّ تُسَكِّتُ فَطِيمَهَا.
نَعَمْ، نَفْسِي عِنْدِي كَطِفلٍ مَفطُومٍ.
٣ يَا بَنِي إسْرَائِيلَ،
لِيَكُنْ رَجَاؤُكُمْ فِي اللهِ،
مِنَ الآنَ وَإلَى الأبِدِ.

29 dicembre 2023 Preghiamo per Padre Paolo ovunque sia e perché il Signore ci doni un 2024 di Pace

Salmo 87
Dei figli di Core. Salmo. Canto.
1 Le sue fondamenta sono sui monti santi;
2 il Signore ama le porte di Sion
più di tutte le dimore di Giacobbe.
3 Di te si dicono cose stupende,
città di Dio.
4 Ricorderò Raab e Babilonia fra quelli che mi conoscono;
ecco, Palestina, Tiro ed Etiopia:
tutti là sono nati.
5 Si dirà di Sion: “L’uno e l’altro è nato in essa
e l’Altissimo la tiene salda”.
6 Il Signore scriverà nel libro dei popoli:
“Là costui è nato”.
7 E danzando canteranno:
“Sono in te tutte le mie sorgenti”.

Psaume 87
Psaume. Chant des descendants de Koré.

1 Elle est fondée sur les montagnes saintes,
2 Le Seigneur aime la ville de Sion,
plus que toutes les demeures de Jacob.
3 On a dit sur toi des choses glorieuses,
O toi, ville de Dieu !
4 Je mentionne l’Égypte et Babylone parmi ceux qui me connaissent.
Voici le pays des Philistins, Tyr, ainsi que l’Éthiopie :
c’est là qu’ils sont nés.
5 Mais de Sion il est dit : « Tous y sont nés,
et c’est le Très-Haut qui l’a fondée ».
6 Le Seigneur inscrit au registre des peuples :
« C’est là qu’ils sont nés ».
7 Ceux qui chantent et ceux qui dansent s’écrient :
« Toutes mes sources sont en toi ».

Psalm 87
A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song.
1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion
More than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God!
4 “I will make mention of [a]Rahab and Babylon to those who know Me;
Behold, O Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia:
‘This one was born there.’ ”
5 And of Zion it will be said,
“This one and that one were born in her;
And the Most High Himself shall establish her.”
6 The LORD will record,
When He registers the peoples:
“This one was born there.”
7 Both the singers and the players on instruments say,
“All my springs are in you.”

29 Novembre 2023 Preghiamo perchè si costruisca un percorso di Pace per questa umanità dolente a causa delle guerre. Pensiamo a Paolo e al suo messaggio di dialogo.

Salmo 27
Di Davide

1 Il Signore è mia luce e mia salvezza,
di chi avrò paura?
Il Signore è difesa della mia vita,
di chi avrò timore?
2 Quando mi assalgono i malvagi
per straziarmi la carne,
sono essi, avversari e nemici,
a inciampare e cadere.
3 Se contro di me si accampa un esercito,
il mio cuore non teme;
se contro di me divampa la battaglia,
anche allora ho fiducia.
4 Una cosa ho chiesto al Signore,
questa sola io cerco:
abitare nella casa del Signore
tutti i giorni della mia vita,
per gustare la dolcezza del Signore
ed ammirare il suo santuario.
5 Egli mi offre un luogo di rifugio
nel giorno della sventura.
Mi nasconde nel segreto della sua dimora,
mi solleva sulla rupe.
6 E ora rialzo la testa
sui nemici che mi circondano;
immolerò nella sua casa sacrifici d’esultanza,
inni di gioia canterò al Signore.
7 Ascolta, Signore, la mia voce.
Io grido: abbi pietà di me! Rispondimi.
8 Di te ha detto il mio cuore: «Cercate il suo volto»;
il tuo volto, Signore, io cerco.
9 Non nascondermi il tuo volto,
non respingere con ira il tuo servo.
Sei tu il mio aiuto, non lasciarmi,
non abbandonarmi, Dio della mia salvezza.
10 Mio padre e mia madre mi hanno abbandonato,
ma il Signore mi ha raccolto.
11 Mostrami, Signore, la tua via,
guidami sul retto cammino,
a causa dei miei nemici.
12 Non espormi alla brama dei miei avversari;
contro di me sono insorti falsi testimoni
che spirano violenza.
13 Sono certo di contemplare la bontà del Signore
nella terra dei viventi.
14 Spera nel Signore, sii forte,
si rinfranchi il tuo cuore e spera nel Signore.

Psaume 27
De David.
Le Seigneur est ma lumière et mon salut: De qui aurais-je crainte? Le Seigneur est le soutien de ma vie: De qui aurais-je peur?
2 Quand des méchants s’avancent contre moi, Pour dévorer ma chair, Ce sont mes persécuteurs et mes ennemis Qui chancellent et tombent.
3 Si une armée se campait contre moi, Mon coeur n’aurait aucune crainte; Si une guerre s’élevait contre moi, Je serais malgré cela plein de confiance.
4 Je demande au Seigneur une chose, que je désire ardemment: Je voudrais habiter toute ma vie dans la maison du Seigneur, Pour contempler la magnificence du Seigneur Et pour admirer son temple.
5 Car il me protégera dans son tabernacle au jour du malheur, Il me cachera sous l’abri de sa tente; Il m’élèvera sur un rocher.
6 Et déjà ma tête s’élève sur mes ennemis qui m’entourent; J’offrirai des sacrifices dans sa tente, au son de la trompette; Je chanterai, je célébrerai le Seigneur.
7 Seigneur! écoute ma voix, je t’invoque: Aie pitié de moi et exauce-moi!
8 Mon coeur dit de ta part: Cherchez ma face! Je cherche ta face, ô Seigneur!
9 Ne me cache point ta face, Ne repousse pas avec colère ton serviteur! Tu es mon secours, ne me laisse pas, ne m’abandonne pas, Dieu de mon salut!
10 Car mon père et ma mère m’abandonnent, Mais le Seigneur me recueillera.
11 Seigneur! enseigne-moi ta voie, Conduis-moi dans le sentier de la droiture, A cause de mes ennemis.
12 Ne me livre pas au bon plaisir de mes adversaires, Car il s’élève contre moi de faux témoins Et des gens qui ne respirent que la violence.
13 Oh! si je n’étais pas sûr de voir la bonté du Seigneur Sur la terre des vivants!…
14 Espère en le Seigneur! Fortifie-toi et que ton coeur s’affermisse! Espère en le Seigneur!

Psalm 27
Of David.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, even in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD; that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret places of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me upon a rock.
6 And then shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore I will offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me and answer me.
8 When Thou saidst, “Seek ye My face,” my heart said unto Thee, “Thy face, LORD, will I seek.”
9 Hide not Thy face far from me; put not Thy servant away in anger. Thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me Thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a level path because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies; for false witnesses have risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I would have fainted, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the LORD!

اللهُ نُورِي وَخَلَاصِي،
فَمِمَّنْ أخَافُ؟
اللهُ مَلجَأُ حَيَاتِي،
فَمِمَّنْ أخْشَى؟
2 إنِ اقْتَرَبَ مِنِّي أعْدَائِي وَخُصُومِي
وَالأشْرَارُ لِيَفْتَرِسُونِي،
فَسَيَتَعَثَّرُونَ وَيَسْقُطُونَ.
3 لَنْ أخَافَ حَتَّى لَوْ حَاصَرَنِي جَيْشٌ.
وَسَأظَلُّ مُطْمَئِنًّا حَتَّى لَوْ شَنُّوا عَلَيَّ حَرْبًا.
4 وَلَيْسَ لِي إلَّا مَطلَبٌ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ اللهِ:
أنْ أبْقَى فِي بَيْتِ اللهِ بَقِيَّةَ عُمْرِي،
لِكَي أرَى جَمَالَ اللهِ وَأُسَبِّحَهُ فِي هَيْكَلِهِ.
5 لِأنَّهُ يَحْمِينِي فِي سِتْرِهِ فِي يَوْمِ الشَّرِّ.
يُخَبِّئُنِي فِي أعْمَاقِ خَيْمَتِهِ،
وَيَرْفَعُنِي إلَى مَكَانِ أمَانٍ.
6 وَالْآنَ، يَرْفَعُنِي فَوْقَ أعْدَائِي

وَأُغَنِّي الأغَانِيَ وَأُرَنِّمُ للهِ.
7 اسْتَمِعْ لِي وَأنَا أدعُوكَ يَا اللهُ.
ارحَمِنِي وَاستَجِبْ لِي.
8 أنْتَ تَقُولُ لِقَلْبِي:
«اطلُبْ وَجْهِي.»
وَلِهَذَا أطلُبُ يَا اللهُ وَجْهَكَ.
9 لَا تَحْجُبْ وَجْهَكَ عَنِّي.
لَا تَتَجَاهَلْنِي بِسَبَبِ غَضَبِكَ.
فَأنْتَ عَوْنِي!
لَا تَتْرُكنِي وَلَا تَهْجُرْنِي، يَا إلَهِي المُعِينُ.
10 حَتَّى لَوْ تَرَكَنِي أبِي وَأُمِّي،
فَإنَّ اللهَ يَحْتَضِنُنِي.
11 عَلِّمْنِي يَا اللهُ طُرُقَكَ،
وَفِي طَرِيقِ السَّلَامَةِ اهدِنِي،
فَأعْدَائِي كَثِيرُونَ.
12 لَا تَسْمَحْ بِأنْ يَهْزِمَنِي خُصُومِي!
أطلُبُ هَذَا لِأنَّ كَثِيرِينَ قَالُوا كَذِبًا عَلَيَّ لِيُؤذُونِي.
13 لَولَا أنِّي آمَنْتُ بِأنِّي سَأرَى بَرَكَاتِ اللهِ فِي حَيَاتِي.
14 لِيَكُنْ رَجَاؤُكَ فِي اللهِ!
تَقَوَّ وَتَشَجَّعْ.
وَلِيَكُنْ رَجَاؤُكَ فِي اللهِ!

29 ottobre 2023 sono trascorsi dieci anni e due mesi dal rapimento di Paolo a Raqqa, preghiamo per lui e rivolgiamo una preghiera speciale al Signore, attraverso il salmo 85, perché conceda la Pace a questo mondo martoriato

Salmo 85
1Al maestro del coro. Dei figli di Core.
2 Signore, sei stato buono con la tua terra,
hai ricondotto i deportati di Giacobbe.
3 Hai perdonato l’iniquità del tuo popolo,
hai cancellato tutti i suoi peccati.
4 Hai deposto tutto il tuo sdegno
e messo fine alla tua grande ira.
5 Rialzaci, Dio nostra salvezza,
e placa il tuo sdegno verso di noi.
6 Forse per sempre sarai adirato con noi,
di età in età estenderai il tuo sdegno?
7 Non tornerai tu forse a darci vita,
perché in te gioisca il tuo popolo?
8 Mostraci, Signore, la tua misericordia
e donaci la tua salvezza.
9 Ascolterò che cosa dice Dio, il Signore:
egli annunzia la pace
per il suo popolo, per i suoi fedeli,
per chi ritorna a lui con tutto il cuore.
10 La sua salvezza è vicina a chi lo teme
e la sua gloria abiterà la nostra terra.
11 Misericordia e verità s’incontreranno,
giustizia e pace si baceranno.
12 La verità germoglierà dalla terra
e la giustizia si affaccerà dal cielo.
13 Quando il Signore elargirà il suo bene,
la nostra terra darà il suo frutto.
14 Davanti a lui camminerà la giustizia
e sulla via dei suoi passi la salvezza.

Psaume 85
1Au chef de chœur. Psaume des descendants de Koré.

2 Tu as été favorable à ton pays, Seigneur,
tu as rétabli Jacob.
3 Tu as pardonné la faute de ton peuple,
tu as couvert tous ses péchés.
4 Tu as retiré toute ta fureur,
tu as renoncé à ton ardente colère.
5 Rétablis-nous, Dieu de notre salut,
mets fin à ton indignation contre nous!
6 Es-tu irrité contre nous pour toujours?
Ta colère durera-t-elle de génération en génération?
7 Ne veux-tu pas nous rendre la vie,
afin que ton peuple se réjouisse en toi?
8 Seigneur, fais-nous voir ta bonté
et accorde-nous ton salut!
9 J’écouterai ce que dit Dieu, le Seigneur,
car il parle de paix à son peuple et à ses fidèles,
pourvu qu’ils ne retombent pas dans la folie.
10 Oui, son salut est près de ceux qui le craignent,
et ainsi la gloire habitera notre pays.
11 La bonté et la fidélité se rencontrent,
la justice et la paix s’embrassent;
12 la fidélité pousse de la terre,
et la justice se penche du haut du ciel.
13 Le Seigneur lui-même accordera le bonheur,
et notre terre donnera ses produits.
14 La justice marchera devant lui
et tracera le chemin devant ses pas.

Psalm 85
1For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
LORD, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land; Thou hast released the captives of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people; Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah
3 Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath; Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again, that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?
7 Show us Thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us Thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak, for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints; but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good, and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him, and shall set us in the way of His steps.

29 Settembre 2023 Con la speranza nella Promessa del Signore nel cuore, preghiamo per Paolo e per tutti gli afflitti

41 Venga a me, Signore, la tua grazia,
la tua salvezza secondo la tua promessa;
42 a chi mi insulta darò una risposta,
perché ho fiducia nella tua parola.
43 Non togliere mai dalla mia bocca la parola vera,
perché confido nei tuoi giudizi.
44 Custodirò la tua legge per sempre,
nei secoli, in eterno.
45 Sarò sicuro nel mio cammino,
perché ho ricercato i tuoi voleri.
46 Davanti ai re parlerò della tua alleanza
senza temere la vergogna.
47 Gioirò per i tuoi comandi
che ho amati.
48 Alzerò le mani ai tuoi precetti che amo,
mediterò le tue leggi.
49 Ricorda la promessa fatta al tuo servo,
con la quale mi hai dato speranza.
50 Questo mi consola nella miseria:
la tua parola mi fa vivere.
51 I superbi mi insultano aspramente,
ma non devìo dalla tua legge.
52 Ricordo i tuoi giudizi di un tempo, Signore,
e ne sono consolato.
53 Mi ha preso lo sdegno contro gli empi
che abbandonano la tua legge.
54 Sono canti per me i tuoi precetti,
nella terra del mio pellegrinaggio.
55 Ricordo il tuo nome lungo la notte
e osservo la tua legge, Signore.
56 Tutto questo mi accade
perché ho custodito i tuoi precetti.
57 La mia sorte, ho detto, Signore,
è custodire le tue parole.
58 Con tutto il cuore ti ho supplicato,
fammi grazia secondo la tua promessa.

Psaume 119 (41-58)
41 Seigneur, que ta miséricorde vienne sur moi, Ton salut selon ta promesse !
42 Et je pourrai répondre à celui qui m’outrage, Car je me confie en ta parole.
43 N’ôte pas entièrement de ma bouche la parole de la vérité ! Car j’espère en tes jugements.
44 Je garderai ta loi constamment, A toujours et à perpétuité.
45 Je marcherai au large, Car je recherche tes ordonnances.
46 Je parlerai de tes préceptes devant les rois, Et je ne rougirai point.
47 Je fais mes délices de tes commandements. Je les aime.
48 Je lève mes mains vers tes commandements que j’aime, Et je veux méditer tes statuts.
49 Souviens-toi de ta promesse à ton serviteur, Puisque tu m’as donné l’espérance !
50 C’est ma consolation dans ma misère, Car ta promesse me rend la vie.
51 Des orgueilleux me chargent de railleries ; Je ne m’écarte point de ta loi.
52 Je pense à tes jugements d’autrefois, ô Seigneur ! Et je me console.
53 Une colère ardente me saisit à la vue des méchants Qui abandonnent ta loi.
54 Tes statuts sont le sujet de mes cantiques, Dans la maison où je suis étranger.
55 La nuit je me rappelle ton nom, ô Seigneur ! Et je garde ta loi.
56 C’est là ce qui m’est propre, Car j’observe tes ordonnances.
57 Ma part, ô Seigneur ! je le dis, C’est de garder tes paroles.
58 Je t’implore de tout mon cœur : Aie pitié de moi, selon ta promesse!

Psalm 119 (41-58)
41 Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord,
your salvation according to your promise.
42 Then I shall have an answer for those who taunt me,
for I trust in your word.
43 Do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
for my hope is in your ordinances.
44 I will keep your law continually,
for ever and ever.
45 I shall walk at liberty,
for I have sought your precepts.
46 I will also speak of your decrees before kings,
and shall not be put to shame;
47 I find my delight in your commandments,
because I love them.
48 I revere your commandments, which I love,
and I will meditate on your statutes.
49 Remember your word to your servant,
in which you have made me hope.
50 This is my comfort in my distress,
that your promise gives me life.
51 The arrogant utterly deride me,
but I do not turn away from your law.
52 When I think of your ordinances from of old,
I take comfort, O Lord.
53 Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked,
those who forsake your law.
54 Your statutes have been my songs
wherever I make my home.
55 I remember your name in the night, O Lord,
and keep your law.
56 This blessing has fallen to me,
for I have kept your precepts.
57 The Lord is my portion;
I promise to keep your words.
58 I implore your favour with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.

أرِنِي يا اللهُ رَحمَتَكَ وَمَحَبَّتَكَ.
أنقِذنِي كَوَعدِكَ.
عِندَئِذٍ سَأُجاوِبُ الَّذِينَ يُعيِّرُونَنِي،
لأنِّي بِكَلامِكَ أثِقُ!
أعِنِّي فَأتَكَلَّمَ دَوماً بِحَقِّ كَلِمَتِكَ،
فَإنِّي عَلَى أحكامِكَ مُتَوَكِّلٌ.
إلَى الأبَدِ وَالدَّهرِ سَأتَّبِعُ أحكامَكَ.
لأنِّي فِي رُحْبٍ سَأحيا،
لأنِّي أسعَى إلَى حِفظِ أحكامِكَ.
سَأُحَدِّثُ مُلُوكاً
بِعَهدِكَ بِجَسارَةٍ وَبِلا خَجَلٍ.
وَبِوَصاياكَ الَّتِي أُحِبُّ سَأتَلَذَّذُ.
أقسَمْتُ عَلَى الوَلاءِ لِوَصاياكَ الَّتِي أُحِبُّ،
وَسَأتَفَكَّرُ فِي شَرائِعِكَ.
اذكُرْ وَعدَكَ لِي، أنا عَبدَكَ،

المُتَكَبِّرُونَ سَخِرُوا بِي كَثِيراً،
لَكِنِّي لا أنْحَرِفُ عَنْ وَصاياكَ أبَداً.
أحكامُكَ القَدِيمَةُ، يا اللهُ، أذكُرُها،
فَأتَعَزَّى.
يُخِيفُنِي أُولَئِكَ الأشرارُ،
الَّذِينَ تَرَكُوا تَعالِيمَكَ.
كَالمُوسِيقَى فِي بَيتِي هِيَ شَرائِعُكَ.
فِي اللَّيلِ أتَذَكَّرُ اسْمَكَ يا اللهُ،
وَشَرِيعَتَكَ أحفَظُ.
يَحدُثُ هَذا لِي،
لأنِّي أحفَظُ أحكامَكَ.
أنتَ نَصِيبِي يا اللهُ.
لِذا صَمَّمتُ أنْ أُطِيعَ وَصاياكَ.
بِكُلِّ كَيانِي أشتَهِي أنْ أخدِمَكَ،
فَارحَمْنِي كَوَعدِكَ.

29 Agosto 2023 Preghiamo per Paolo e per tutti gli scomparsi. Una preghiera per la mamma di Padre Paolo della quale oggi abbiamo celebrato la sua salita al cielo tra le braccia del Signore.

Vedendo le folle, Gesù salì sulla montagna e, messosi a sedere, gli si avvicinarono i suoi discepoli. Prendendo allora la parola, li ammaestrava dicendo:
“Beati i poveri in spirito, perché di essi è il regno dei cieli.
Beati gli afflitti, perché saranno consolati.
Beati i miti, perché erediteranno la terra.
Beati quelli che hanno fame e sete della giustizia, perché saranno saziati.
Beati i misericordiosi, perché troveranno misericordia.
Beati i puri di cuore, perché vedranno Dio.
Beati gli operatori di pace, perché saranno chiamati figli di Dio.
Beati i perseguitati per causa della giustizia, perché di essi è il regno dei cieli.
Beati voi quando vi insulteranno, vi perseguiteranno e, mentendo, diranno ogni sorta di male contro di voi per causa mia. Rallegratevi ed esultate, perché grande è la vostra ricompensa nei cieli. Così infatti hanno perseguitato i profeti prima di voi.”

Matthieu 5, 1-12
Voyant les foules, Jésus gravit la montagne. Il s’assit, et ses disciples s’approchèrent de lui.
Alors, ouvrant la bouche, il les enseignait. Il disait :
« Heureux les pauvres de cœur, car le royaume des Cieux est à eux.
Heureux ceux qui pleurent, car ils seront consolés.
Heureux les doux, car ils recevront la terre en héritage.
Heureux ceux qui ont faim et soif de la justice, car ils seront rassasiés.
Heureux les miséricordieux, car ils obtiendront miséricorde.
Heureux les cœurs purs, car ils verront Dieu.
Heureux les artisans de paix, car ils seront appelés fils de Dieu.
Heureux ceux qui sont persécutés pour la justice, car le royaume des Cieux est à eux.
Heureux êtes-vous si l’on vous insulte, si l’on vous persécute et si l’on dit faussement toute sorte de mal contre vous, à cause de moi.
Réjouissez-vous, soyez dans l’allégresse, car votre récompense est grande dans les cieux !
En effet, c’est ainsi qu’on a persécuté les prophètes qui vous ont précédés. »

Matthew 5, 1-12
Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

متى ٥، ١-١۲
وَلَمَّا رَأَى الْجُمُوعَ صَعِدَ إِلَى الْجَبَلِ، فَلَمَّا جَلَسَ تَقَدَّمَ إِلَيْهِ تَلاَمِيذُهُ.
فَفتحَ فاهُ وعَلَّمَهُمْ قَائِلاً:
“طُوبَى لِلْمَسَاكِينِ بِالرُّوحِ، لأَنَّ لَهُمْ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ.
طُوبَى لِلْحَزَانَى، لأَنَّهُمْ يَتَعَزَّوْنَ.
طُوبَى لِلْوُدَعَاءِ، لأَنَّهُمْ يَرِثُونَ الأَرْضَ.
طُوبَى لِلْجِيَاعِ وَالْعِطَاشِ إِلَى الْبِرِّ، لأَنَّهُمْ يُشْبَعُونَ.
طُوبَى لِلرُّحَمَاءِ، لأَنَّهُمْ يُرْحَمُونَ.
طُوبَى لِلأَنْقِيَاءِ الْقَلْبِ، لأَنَّهُمْ يُعَايِنُونَ اللهَ.
طُوبَى لِصَانِعِي السَّلاَمِ، لأَنَّهُمْ أَبْنَاءَ اللهِ يُدْعَوْنَ.
طُوبَى لِلْمَطْرُودِينَ مِنْ أَجْلِ الْبِرِّ، لأَنَّ لَهُمْ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ.
طُوبَى لَكُمْ إِذَا عَيَّرُوكُمْ وَطَرَدُوكُمْ وَقَالُوا عَلَيْكُمْ كُلَّ كَلِمَةٍ شِرِّيرَةٍ، مِنْ أَجْلِي، كَاذِبِينَ.
اِفْرَحُوا وَتَهَلَّلُوا، لأَنَّ أَجْرَكُمْ عَظِيمٌ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ، فَإِنَّهُمْ هكَذَا طَرَدُوا الأَنْبِيَاءَ الَّذِينَ قَبْلَكُمْ. ”

29 Luglio 2023 Dieci anni sono trascorsi dal rapimento di Padre Paolo, preghiamo perchè il Signore aiuti a fare Verità sulla sua sorte e ricordiamo anche tutti i migliaia di scomparsi in Siria

Salmo 138
Di Davide.
1Ti rendo grazie, Signore, con tutto il cuore:
hai ascoltato le parole della mia bocca.
A te voglio cantare davanti agli angeli,
2 mi prostro verso il tuo tempio santo.
Rendo grazie al tuo nome
per la tua fedeltà e la tua misericordia:
hai reso la tua promessa più grande di ogni fama.
3 Nel giorno in cui t’ho invocato, mi hai risposto,
hai accresciuto in me la forza.
4 Ti loderanno, Signore, tutti i re della terra
quando udranno le parole della tua bocca.
5 Canteranno le vie del Signore,
perché grande è la gloria del Signore;
6 eccelso è il Signore e guarda verso l’umile
ma al superbo volge lo sguardo da lontano.
7 Se cammino in mezzo alla sventura
tu mi ridoni vita;
contro l’ira dei miei nemici stendi la mano
e la tua destra mi salva.
8 Il Signore completerà per me l’opera sua.
Signore, la tua bontà dura per sempre:
non abbandonare l’opera delle tue mani.

Psaume 138

De David.
1Je te célèbre de tout mon cœur,
Je chante tes louanges en la présence de Dieu.
2 Je me prosterne dans ton saint temple,
Et je célèbre ton nom, à cause de ta bonté et de ta fidélité,
Car ta renommée s’est accrue par l’accomplissement de tes promesses.
3 Le jour où je t’ai invoqué, tu m’as exaucé,
Tu m’as rassuré, tu as fortifié mon âme.
4 Tous les rois de la terre te loueront, ô Seigneur !
En entendant les paroles de ta bouche ;
5 Ils célébreront les voies du Seigneur,
Car la gloire du Seigneur est grande.
6 Le Seigneur est élevé : il voit les humbles,
Il reconnaît de loin les orgueilleux.
7 Quand je marche au milieu de la détresse, tu me rends la vie,
Tu étends ta main sur la colère de mes ennemis,
Ta droite me sauve.
8 Le Seigneur complètera son œuvre pour moi.
Seigneur, ta bonté dure toujours,
N’abandonne pas l’œuvre de tes mains !

Psalm 138
Of David.
1I will praise Thee with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praise unto Thee.
2 I will worship toward Thy holy temple, and praise Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and for Thy truth, for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name.
3 In the day when I cried, Thou answered me, and strengthened me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise Thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of Thy mouth.
5 Yea, they shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly, but the proud He knoweth afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou wilt revive me; Thou shalt stretch forth Thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and Thy right hand shall save me.
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me; Thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever; forsake not the work of Thine own hands.

مزمور ١٣٨
لِداوُد
1أحمَدُكَ مِنْ كُلِّ قَلبِي يا اللهُ.
أُرَنِّمُ لَكَ أمامَ كُلِّ الآلِهَةِ.
2 أنحَنِي تُجاهَ هَيكَلِكَ المُقَدَّسِ.
وَأُحمَدُ اسْمَكَ
مِنْ أجلِ أمانَتِكَ وَمَحَبَّتِكَ.
لأنَّكَ رَفَعْتَ اسْمَكَ وَكَلِمَتَكَ فَوقَ كُلِّ شَيءٍ.
3 استَجَبتَ لِي يَومَ دَعَوتُكَ،
وَشَدَّدْتَ نَفسِي.
4 سَيُسَبِّحُكَ، يا اللهُ، كُلُّ مُلُوكِ الأرْضِ
حِينَ يَسمَعُونَ كَلامَكَ.
5 وَليَتَغَنُّوا بِما يَفعَلُهُ اللهُ
لأنَّ مَجدَ اللهِ عَظِيمٌ!
6 اللهُ مُمَجَّدٌ، غَيرَ أنَّهُ يَنتَبِهُ لِلمُتَواضِعِينَ،
وَيَعرِفُ المُتَعالِينَ لَكِنَّهُ يَنأى عَنهُمْ.
7 إنْ سِرتُ فِي وَسَطِ ضِيقٍ
لا تَدَعُ غَضَبَ عَدُوِّيَ يَقضِي عَلَيَّ،
بَلْ تَمُدُّ يَدَكَ وَتُخَلِّصُنِي بِيَمِينِكَ.
8 اللهُ سَيَقتَصُّ لِي مِنْ أعدائِي
لأنَّ رَحْمَتَكَ إلَى الأبَدِ،
يا اللهُ.
أنتَ خَلَقْتَنا بِيَدَيكَ،
فَلا تَتَخَلَّ عَنّا.

29 Giugno 2023 Il Signore ascolta il grido dei giusti e li libera da tutte le loro angosce. Preghiamo per Padre Paolo e per tutti coloro che sono ingiustamente detenuti e per i loro cari.

Salmo 33 di Davide, quando si finse pazzo in presenza di Abimelech e, da lui scacciato, se ne andò.

Benedirò il Signore in ogni tempo,
sulla mia bocca sempre la sua lode.
2 Io mi glorio nel Signore,
ascoltino gli umili e si rallegrino.
3 Celebrate con me il Signore,
esaltiamo insieme il suo nome.
4 Ho cercato il Signore e mi ha risposto
e da ogni timore mi ha liberato.
5 Guardate a lui e sarete raggianti,
non saranno confusi i vostri volti.
6 Questo povero grida e il Signore lo ascolta,
lo libera da tutte le sue angosce.
7 L’angelo del Signore si accampa
attorno a quelli che lo temono e li salva.
8 Gustate e vedete quanto è buono il Signore;
beato l’uomo che in lui si rifugia.
9 Temete il Signore, suoi santi,
nulla manca a coloro che lo temono.
10 I ricchi impoveriscono e hanno fame,
ma chi cerca il Signore non manca di nulla.
11 Venite, figli, ascoltatemi;
v’insegnerò il timore del Signore.
12 C’è qualcuno che desidera la vita
e brama lunghi giorni per gustare il bene?
13 Preserva la lingua dal male,
le labbra da parole bugiarde.
14 Sta’ lontano dal male e fa’ il bene,
cerca la pace e perseguila.
15 Gli occhi del Signore sui giusti,
i suoi orecchi al loro grido di aiuto.
16 Il volto del Signore contro i malfattori,
per cancellarne dalla terra il ricordo.
17 Gridano e il Signore li ascolta,
li salva da tutte le loro angosce.
18 Il Signore è vicino a chi ha il cuore ferito,
egli salva gli spiriti affranti.
19 Molte sono le sventure del giusto,
ma lo libera da tutte il Signore.
20 Preserva tutte le sue ossa,
neppure uno sarà spezzato.
21 La malizia uccide l’empio
e chi odia il giusto sarà punito.
22 Il Signore riscatta la vita dei suoi servi,
chi in lui si rifugia non sarà condannato.

Psaume 33
1 De David. Lorsqu’il contrefit l’insensé en présence d’Abimélek, et qu’il s’en alla chassé par lui.
Je bénirai le Seigneur en tout temps; Sa louange sera toujours dans ma bouche.
2 Que mon âme se glorifie dans le Seigneur! Que les malheureux écoutent et se réjouissent!
3 Exaltez avec moi le Seigneur! Célébrons tous son nom!
4 J’ai cherché le Seigneur, et il m’a répondu; Il m’a délivré de toutes mes frayeurs.
5 Quand on tourne vers lui les regards, on est rayonnant de joie, Et le visage ne se couvre pas de honte.
6 Un malheureux crie, le Seigneur entend, Et il le sauve de toutes ses détresses.
7 L’ange du Seigneur campe autour de ceux qui le craignent, Et il les arrache au danger.
8 Sentez et voyez combien le Seigneur est bon! Heureux l’homme qui cherche en lui son refuge!
9 Craignez le Seigneur, vous ses saints! Car rien ne manque à ceux qui le craignent.
10 Les lionceaux éprouvent la disette et la faim, Mais ceux qui cherchent le Seigneur ne sont privés d’aucun bien.
11 Venez, mes fils, écoutez-moi! Je vous enseignerai la crainte du Seigneur.
12 Quel est l’homme qui aime la vie, Qui désire la prolonger pour jouir du bonheur?
13 Préserve ta langue du mal, Et tes lèvres des paroles trompeuses;
14 Éloigne-toi du mal, et fais le bien; Recherche et poursuis la paix.
15 Les yeux du Seigneur sont sur les justes, Et ses oreilles sont attentives à leurs cris.
16 Le Seigneur tourne sa face contre les méchants, Pour retrancher de la terre leur souvenir.
17 Les justes crient, le Seigneur entend, Et il les délivre de toutes leurs détresses;
18 Le Seigneur est près de ceux qui ont le cœur brisé, Et il sauve ceux qui ont l’esprit dans l’abattement.
19 Le malheur atteint souvent le juste, Mais le Seigneur l’en délivre toujours.
20 Il garde tous ses os, Aucun d’eux n’est brisé.
21 Le malheur tue le méchant, Et les ennemis du juste sont châtiés.
22 Le Seigneur délivre l’âme de ses serviteurs, Et tous ceux qui l’ont pour refuge échappent au châtiment.

Psalm 33
1 A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.
I will bless the Lord at all times:
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord:
the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened:
and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him,
and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints:
for there is no want to them that fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:
but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is he that desireth life,
and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil,
and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,
and his ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil,
to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth,
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones:
not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked:
and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants:
and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

الْمَزْمُور ٣٣
مزمورٌ لِداوُدَ [b] عِندَما تَظاهَرَ بِالجُنُونِ أمامَ أبِيمالِكَ فَطَرَدَهُ فَانْصَرَفَ داوُدُ.

أُبارِكُ اللهَ فِي كُلِّ حِينٍ.
وَدائِماً تَسبِيحُهُ عَلَى شَفَتَيَّ.
بِاللهِ فَخْرُ نَفْسِي.
لَيتَ المَساكِينَ يَسْمَعُونَنِي لِيَفْرَحُوا!
كَرِّمُوا مَعِي اللهَ.
وَلْنَرْفَعْ مَعاً اسْمَهُ.
إنِّي للهِ لَجَأْتُ، فَأجابَنِي!
وَمِنْ جَمِيعِ مَخاوِفِي خَلَّصَنِي.
انْظُرُوا إلَيهِ وَاسْتَنِيرُوا،
فَلَنْ تَخْجَلَ وُجُوهُكُمْ.
دَعَوْتُ أنا المِسْكِينَ،
فَسَمِعَنِي اللهُ،
وَمِنْ مَتاعِبِي أنقَذَنِي.
مَلاكُ اللهِ يُخَيِّمُ حَولَ خائِفِيهِ،
وَهُوَ يُنقِذُهُمْ.
ذُوقُوا لِتَعرِفُوا ما أطْيَبَ اللهَ.
هَنِيئاً لِلإنسانِ المُتَّكِلِ عَلَيهِ.
اتَّقُوا اللهَ أيُّها المُقَدَّسونَ لَهُ.
لِأنَّ الَّذينَ يَتَّقُونَهُ مُكتَفُونَ وَلا يَنْقُصُهُمْ شَيْءٌ.
حَتَّى الأُسُودُ القَوِيَّةُ تَجُوعُ وَتَحتاجُ،
أمّا المُلتَجِئُونَ إلَى اللهِ، فَلا يَنقُصُهُمْ شَيءٌ مِنَ الخَيرِ.
تَعالَوْا يا أبنائِي وَاستَمِعُوا إلَيَّ،
وَسَأُعَلِّمُكُمْ كَيفَ تَتَّقُونَ اللهَ.
أتُحِبُّ أنْ تَتَمَتَّعَ بِالحَياةِ؟
أتُرِيدُ أنْ تَحيا حَياةً طَوِيلَةً مَملوءَةً بِالخَيْرِ؟
فَاحفَظْ لِسانَكَ مِنَ الشَّرِّ،
وَشَفَتَيْكَ مِنَ الكَلامِ المُخادِعِ.
تَجَنَّبِ الشَّرَّ، وَافعَلِ الخَيرَ.
إلَى السَّلامِ اسْعَ، بَلْ جِدَّ فِي طَلَبِهِ!
عَينا اللهِ عَلَى الأبرارِ،
وَأُذُنَيهِ مُنتَبِهَتانِ إلَى صُراخِهِمْ.
لَكِنَّ اللهَ يُقاوِمُ فاعِلِي الشَّرِّ،
حَتَّى يَقطَعَ مِنَ الأرْضِ ذِكْرَهُمْ.
صَرَخُوا إلَى اللهِ فَسَمِعَهُمْ،
وَمِنْ جَمِيعِ مَتاعِبِهِمْ أنقَذَهُمْ.
اللهُ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ كَسِيرِي القُلُوبِ،
وَهُوَ يُخَلِّصُ الَّذِينَ انقَطَعَ رَجاؤُهُمْ.
رُبَّما تَكثُرُ ضِيقاتُ الإنْسانِ المُسْتَقِيمِ.
لَكِنْ مِنْها كُلِّها يُخَلِّصُهُ اللهُ.
يَحفَظُ عِظامَهُ كُلَّها،
فَلا يُكسَرُ واحِدٌ مِنْها.
الشِّرِّيرُ سَيَقْتُلُهُ شَرُّهُ.
وَأعداءُ الإنسانِ الصّالِحِ سَيُعاقَبُونَ.
اللهُ يَفدِي حَياةَ عَبِيدِهِ،
يُعْفَى عَنْ كُلِّ المُحتَمِينَ بِهِ.

29 Maggio 2023 Affidiamo allo Spirito Santo Padre Paolo e le vittime di tutte le guerre

Vieni, Santo Spirito

Vieni, Santo Spirito,
manda a noi dal cielo
un raggio della tua luce.

Vieni, padre dei poveri,
vieni, datore dei doni,
vieni, luce dei cuori.

Consolatore perfetto,
ospite dolce dell’anima,
dolcissimo sollievo.

Nella fatica, riposo,
nella calura, riparo,
nel pianto, conforto.

O luce beatissima,
invadi nell’intimo
il cuore dei tuoi fedeli.

Senza la tua forza,
nulla è nell’uomo,
nulla senza colpa.

Lava ciò che è sordido,
bagna ciò che è arido,
sana ciò che sanguina.

Piega ciò che è rigido,
scalda ciò che è gelido,
raddrizza ciò ch’è sviato.

Dona ai tuoi fedeli
che solo in te confidano
i tuoi santi doni.

Dona virtù e premio,
dona morte santa,
dona gioia eterna. Amen.

Viens, EspritSaint

Viens, EspritSaint,
et envoie du haut du ciel
un rayon de ta lumière.

Viens en nous, père des pauvres,
viens, dispensateur des dons,
viens, lumière de nos cœurs.

Consolateur souverain,
hôte très doux de nos âmes,
adoucissante fraîcheur.

Dans le labeur, le repos,
dans la fièvre, la fraîcheur,
dans les pleurs, le réconfort.

O lumière bienheureuse,
viens remplir jusqu’à l’intime
le cœur de tous tes fidèles.

Sans ta puissance divine,
il n’est rien en aucun homme,
rien qui ne soit perverti.

Lave ce qui est souillé,
baigne ce qui est aride,
guéris ce qui est blessé.

Assouplis ce qui est raide,
réchauffe ce qui est froid,
rends droit ce qui est faussé.

A tous ceux qui ont la foi
et qui en toi se confient,
donne tes sept dons sacrés.

Donne mérite et vertu,
donne le salut final,
donne la joie éternelle.


Come, Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!

Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
Come, within our bosoms shine.

You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul’s most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;

In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
And our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, we have naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:

Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sevenfold gift descend:

Give them virtue’s sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end.

Amen.

هلم أيها الروح القدس

هلم أيها الروح القدس،
وأرسل من السماء
شعاع نورك.

هلم يا أبا المساكين.
هلم يا معطي المواهب.
هلم يا ضياء القلوب.

أيها المعزي الجليل،
يا ساكن القلوب العذب،
أيتها الاستراحة اللذيذة،

أنت في التعب راحة،
وفي الحر اعتدال،
وفي البكاء تعزية.

أيها النور الطوباوي،
املأ باطن قلوب مؤمنيك،
لأنه بدون قدرتك
لا شيء في الانسان
ولا شيء طاهر

طهر ما كان دنساً،
اسق ما كان يابساً،
اشف ما كان معلولاً،

ليِّن ما كان صلباً،
أضرم ما كان بارداً،
دبّر ما كان حائداً.

أعط مؤمنيك المتكلين عليك المواهب السبع،
امنحهم ثواب الفضيلة،
هب لهم غاية الخلاص،
أعطهم السرور الأبدي.

آمين.

29 aprile 2023 Preghiamo insieme attraverso il Salmo 59 che è un grido di liberazione. Chiediamo a Dio questo dono per tutti gli oppressi e in modo particolare per Paolo e tutti i prigionieri

Salmo 59
1 Al maestro del coro. Su «Non distruggere». Di Davide. Quando Saul mandò uomini a sorvegliare la casa e ad ucciderlo.
2 Liberami dai nemici, mio Dio,
proteggimi dagli aggressori.
3 Liberami da chi fa il male,
salvami da chi sparge sangue.
4 Ecco, insidiano la mia vita,
contro di me si avventano i potenti.
Signore, non c’è colpa in me, non c’è peccato;
5 senza mia colpa accorrono e si appostano.
Svègliati, vienimi incontro e guarda.
6 Tu, Signore, Dio degli eserciti, Dio d’Israele,
lèvati a punire tutte le genti;
non avere pietà dei traditori.
7 Ritornano a sera e ringhiano come cani,
si aggirano per la città.
8 Ecco, vomitano ingiurie,
le loro labbra sono spade.
Dicono: «Chi ci ascolta?».
9 Ma tu, Signore, ti ridi di loro,
ti burli di tutte le genti.
10 A te, mia forza, io mi rivolgo:
sei tu, o Dio, la mia difesa.
11 La grazia del mio Dio mi viene in aiuto,
Dio mi farà sfidare i miei nemici.
12 Non ucciderli, perché il mio popolo non dimentichi,
disperdili con la tua potenza e abbattili,
Signore, nostro scudo.
13 Peccato è la parola delle loro labbra,
cadano nel laccio del loro orgoglio
per le bestemmie e le menzogne che pronunziano.
14 Annientali nella tua ira,
annientali e più non siano;
e sappiano che Dio domina in Giacobbe,
fino ai confini della terra.
15 Ritornano a sera e ringhiano come cani,
per la città si aggirano
16 vagando in cerca di cibo;
latrano, se non possono saziarsi.
17 Ma io canterò la tua potenza,
al mattino esalterò la tua grazia
perché sei stato mia difesa,
mio rifugio nel giorno del pericolo.
18 O mia forza, a te voglio cantare,
poiché tu sei, o Dio, la mia difesa,
tu, o mio Dio, sei la mia misericordia.
Psaume 59
1 Au chef des chantres, sur la mélodie de «Ne détruis pas». Hymne de David, lorsque Saül envoya cerner sa maison pour le faire mourir.
2 Mon Dieu, délivre-moi de mes ennemis,
protège-moi contre mes adversaires!
3 Délivre-moi de ceux qui commettent l’injustice
et sauve-moi des hommes sanguinaires,
4 car les voici aux aguets pour m’enlever la vie.
Des hommes puissants complotent contre moi
sans que je sois coupable, sans que j’aie péché, Eternel!
5 Malgré mon innocence ils accourent, prêts à m’attaquer.
Réveille-toi, viens vers moi et regarde!
6 Toi, Eternel, Dieu de l’univers, Dieu d’Israël,
lève-toi pour corriger toutes les nations,
ne fais grâce à aucun de ces traîtres impies! – Pause.
7 Ils reviennent chaque soir, ils hurlent comme des chiens,
ils font le tour de la ville.
8 De leur bouche ils font jaillir l’injure,
leurs paroles sont des épées.
Ils disent: «Qui est-ce qui entend?»
9 Mais toi, Eternel, tu te ris d’eux,
tu te moques de toutes les nations.
10 Toi qui es ma force, c’est en toi que j’espère,
car Dieu est ma forteresse.
11 Mon Dieu m’accueille dans sa bonté,
Dieu me fait contempler mes adversaires.
12 Ne les tue pas, sinon mon peuple les oublierait;
fais-les trembler par ta puissance et jette-les à bas,
Seigneur, notre bouclier!
13 Leur bouche pèche à chaque parole de leurs lèvres:
qu’ils soient pris dans leur propre orgueil!
Ils ne profèrent que malédictions et mensonges:
14 détruis-les, dans ta fureur, détruis-les, et qu’ils n’existent plus!
Qu’on sache que Dieu règne sur Jacob
jusqu’aux extrémités de la terre! – Pause.
15 Ils reviennent chaque soir, ils hurlent comme des chiens,
ils font le tour de la ville.
16 Ils errent çà et là, cherchant leur nourriture,
et ils passent la nuit sans être rassasiés.
17 Quant à moi, je chanterai ta force,
dès le matin je célébrerai ta bonté,
car tu es pour moi une forteresse,
un refuge quand je suis dans la détresse.
18 Toi qui es ma force, c’est pour toi que je veux chanter,
car Dieu, mon Dieu si bon, est ma forteresse.

Psalm 59
1 To the Chief Musician; [set to the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” Of David, a record of memorable thoughts when Saul sent men to watch his house in order to kill him.
Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God; defend me from them that rise up against me.
2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
3 For lo, they lie in wait for my soul; the mighty are gathered against me, not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
4 They run and prepare themselves though I am not at fault. Awake to help me, and behold!
5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen; be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah
6 They return at evening; they make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips; “For who,” say they, “doth hear?”
8 But Thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; Thou shalt hold all the heathen in derision.
9 Because of his strength, I will wait upon Thee; for God is my defense.
10 The God of my mercy shall go before me; God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
11 Slay them not, lest my people forget; scatter them by Thy power and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride, and for the cursing and lying which they speak.
13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be; and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah
14 And at evening let them return, and let them make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grumble if they be not satisfied.
16 But I will sing of Thy power, yea, I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning; for Thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 Unto Thee, O my Strength, will I sing; for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.

مزمور ٥٩
١ لِقَائِدِ المُرَنِّمِينَ. عَلَى لَحنِ «لَا تُهلِكْ.» مِكتَامٌ لِدَاوُدَ عِنْدَمَا أرْسَلَ شَاوُلُ رِجَالًا لِيُرَاقِبُوا بَيْتَهُ وَيَقْتُلُوهُ.
إلَهِي، خَلِّصْنِي مِنْ أعْدَائِي!
انْصُرْنِي عَلَى الَّذِينَ يَقُومُونَ عَلَيَّ.
2 مِنْ فَاعِلِي الشَّرِّ أنقِذْنِي.
وَمِنَ القَتَلَةِ نَجِّنِي.
3 يُرِيدُونَ قَتلِي.
وَرِجَالٌ أشِدَّاءُ يُثِيرُونَ مَتَاعِبَ ضِدِّي.
وَأنَا لَمْ أفعَلْ إثمًا،
وَلَمْ أرتَكِبْ خَطِيَّةً، يَا اللهُ!
4 لَمْ أُخطِئْ، غَيْرَ أنَّهُمُ اندَفَعُوا نَحوِي،
استَعَدُّوا لِمُحَارَبَتِي.
قُمْ وَتَعَالَ إلَى عَونِي! انْظُرْ مَا يَجْرِي.
5 وَالْآنَ يَا اللهُ، أيُّهَا الإلَهُ القَدِيرُ،
أنْتَ إلَهُ إسْرَائِيلَ.
فَانْهَضْ وَحَاسِبْ هَذِهِ الشُّعُوبَ.
وَلَا تُظهِرْ رَحْمَةً لِلغَادِرِينَ. سِلَاهْ[a]
6 بِالخَفَاءِ يَأْتُونَ إلَى هُنَا مَسَاءً،
وَيَنْبَحُونَ كَزَمجَرَةِ كِلَابٍ تَهِيمُ فِي طُرُقَاتِ المَدِينَةِ.
7 اسْمَعهُمْ وَهُمْ يُطلِقُونَ إهَانَاتِهِمْ نُبَاحًا،
وَكَأنَّ ألسِنَتَهُمْ سُيُوفٌ.
وَيَقُولُونَ لِأنفُسِهِمْ: «مَنْ يَسْمَعُ؟»
8 لَكِنَّكْ تَضْحَكُ عَلَيْهِمْ يَا اللهُ،
تَسْخَرُ مِنْ كُلِّ الشُّعُوبِ.
9 وَسَأُرَنِّمُ لَكَ يَا اللهُ تَرَانِيمِي،
لِأنَّكَ قُوَّتِي، حِصْنِي المُرْتَفِعُ!
10 اللهُ يُحِبُّنِي وَيَتَقَدَّمُنِي فِي المَعْرَكَةِ.
وَسَيُرِينِي نَصرًا عَلَى أعْدَائِي.
11 لَا تَكْتَفِ بِقَتلِهِمْ، وَإلَّا نَسِيَ شَعْبِي مَنْ نَصَرَهُ.
شَتِّتْهُمْ بِقُوَّتِكَ يَا رَبَّنَا وَتُرسَنَا.
12 قَالُوا عَنْكَ كَذِبًا وَلَعَنُونَا فَأخطَأُوا.
فَعَاقِبْهُمْ بِهَذِهِ الأُمُورِ نَفْسِهَا!
وَلْيَكُنْ كِبرِيَاؤُهُمْ فَخًّا لَهُمْ!
13 أهْلِكْهُمْ فِي غَضَبِكَ!
أهْلِكْهُمْ إلَى أنْ يَفْنَوْا إلَى الأبَدِ!
عِنْدَئِذٍ سَيَعْلَمُ النَّاسُ أنَّ اللهَ هُوَ الحَاكِمُ فِي إسْرَائِيلَ. سِلَاهْ
14 سَيَعُودُ هَؤُلَاءِ عِنْدَ المَسَاءِ خِفيَةً،
وَسَيَنْبَحُونَ كَزُمرَةِ كِلَابٍ تَهِيمُ فِي شَوَارِعِ المَدِينَةِ.
15 يَطُوفُونَ بَحَثًا عَنْ طَعَامٍ،
لَكِنَّهُمْ لَنْ يَجِدُوا لَا طَعَامًا وَلَا مَكَانًا لِلمَبِيتِ.
16 أمَّا أنَا فَأُغَنِّي لِقُوَّتِكَ، وَأُرَنِّمُ فِي الصَّبَاحِ لِمَحَبَّتِكَ،
فَأنْتَ حِصْنِي المُرْتَفِعُ.
أنْتَ مَلْجَأي فِي يَوْمِ ضِيقِي.
17 يَا قُوَّتِي لَكَ سَأُرَنِّمُ،
لِأنَّكَ حِصْنِي المُرْتَفِعُ،
لِأنَّكَ إلَهِي المُحِبُّ.
