29 Aprile 2022, preghiamo il Salmo pensando in modo particolare a Padre paolo, rapito a Raqqa nel 2013 durante il mese del Ramadan dopo aver lanciato un appello a tutte le persone di buona volontà e di retta intenzione di unirsi al digiuno e allo sforzo spirituale per la pace e la riconciliazione

Salmo 140
1 Al maestro del coro. Salmo. Di Davide.
2 Salvami, Signore, dall’uomo malvagio,
proteggimi dall’uomo violento,
3 da quelli che tramano sventure nel cuore
e ogni giorno scatenano guerre.
4 Aguzzano la lingua come serpenti;
veleno d’aspide è sotto le loro labbra.
5 Proteggimi, Signore, dalle mani degli empi,
salvami dall’uomo violento:
essi tramano per farmi cadere.
6 I superbi mi tendono lacci
e stendono funi come una rete,
pongono agguati sul mio cammino.
7 Io dico al Signore: «Tu sei il mio Dio;
ascolta, Signore, la voce della mia preghiera».
8 Signore, mio Dio, forza della mia salvezza,
proteggi il mio capo nel giorno della lotta.
9 Signore, non soddisfare i desideri degli empi,
non favorire le loro trame.
10 Alzano la testa quelli che mi circondano,
ma la malizia delle loro labbra li sommerge.
11 Fà piovere su di loro carboni ardenti,
gettali nel bàratro e più non si rialzino.
12 Il maldicente non duri sulla terra,
il male spinga il violento alla rovina.
13 So che il Signore difende la causa dei miseri,
il diritto dei poveri.
14 Sì, i giusti loderanno il tuo nome,
i retti abiteranno alla tua presenza.

Psaume 140
1 Au chef des chantres. Psaume de David.
2 Seigneur, délivre-moi des hommes méchants !
Préserve-moi des hommes violents,
3 Qui méditent de mauvais desseins dans leur cœur,
Et sont toujours prêts à faire la guerre !
4 Ils aiguisent leur langue comme un serpent,
Ils ont sous leurs lèvres un venin d’aspic. – Pause.
5 Seigneur, garantis-moi des mains du méchant !
Préserve-moi des hommes violents,
Qui méditent de me faire tomber !
6 Des orgueilleux me tendent un piège et des filets,
Ils placent des rets le long du chemin,
Ils me dressent des embûches. – Pause.
7 Je dis au Seigneur : Tu es mon Dieu !
Seigneur, prête l’oreille à la voix de mes supplications !
8 Seigneur, Seigneur, force de mon salut !
Tu couvres ma tête au jour du combat.
9 Seigneur, n’accomplis pas les désirs du méchant,
Ne laisse pas réussir ses projets, de peur qu’il ne s’en glorifie ! – Pause.
10 Que sur la tête de ceux qui m’environnent
Retombe l’iniquité de leurs lèvres !
11 Que des charbons ardents soient jetés sur eux !
Qu’il les précipite dans le feu,
Dans des abîmes, d’où ils ne se relèvent plus !
12 L’homme dont la langue est fausse ne s’affermit pas sur la terre ;
Et l’homme violent, le malheur l’entraîne à sa perte.
13 Je sais que le Seigneur fait droit au misérable,
Justice aux indigents.
14 Oui, les justes célébreront ton nom,
Les hommes droits habiteront devant ta face.

Psalm 140
1 To the leader. A psalm of David.
1 Deliver me, O LORD, from evildoers;
protect me from those who are violent,
2 who plan evil things in their minds
and stir up wars continually.
3 They make their tongue sharp as a snake’s,
and under their lips is the venom of vipers. Selah
4 Guard me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;
protect me from the violent
who have planned my downfall.
5 The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,
and with cords they have spread a net;
along the road they have set snares for me. Selah
6 I say to the LORD, ‘You are my God;
give ear, O LORD, to the voice of my supplications.’
7 O LORD, my Lord, my strong deliverer,
you have covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked;
do not further their evil plot. Selah
9 Those who surround me lift up their heads;
let the mischief of their lips overwhelm them!
10 Let burning coals fall on them!
Let them be flung into pits, no more to rise!
11 Do not let the slanderer be established in the land;
let evil speedily hunt down the violent!
12 I know that the LORD maintains the cause of the needy,
and executes justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;
the upright shall live in your presence.

Salmo 85
1 Al 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
1 Au 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
1 For 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.

Salmo 26
Di Davide.
1 Signore, fammi giustizia:
nell’integrità ho camminato,
confido nel Signore, non potrò vacillare.
2 Scrutami, Signore, e mettimi alla prova,
raffinami al fuoco il cuore e la mente.
3 La tua bontà è davanti ai miei occhi
e nella tua verità dirigo i miei passi.
4 Non siedo con gli uomini mendaci
e non frequento i simulatori.
5 Odio l’alleanza dei malvagi,
non mi associo con gli empi.
6 Lavo nell’innocenza le mie mani
e giro attorno al tuo altare, Signore,
7 per far risuonare voci di lode
e per narrare tutte le tue meraviglie.
8 Signore, amo la casa dove dimori
e il luogo dove abita la tua gloria.
9 Non travolgermi insieme ai peccatori,
con gli uomini di sangue non perder la mia vita,
10 perché nelle loro mani è la perfidia,
la loro destra è piena di regali.
11 Integro è invece il mio cammino;
riscattami e abbi misericordia.
12 Il mio piede sta su terra piana;
nelle assemblee benedirò il Signore.

Psaume 26
De David.
1 Rends-moi justice, Seigneur! car je marche dans l’intégrité, Je me confie en le Seigneur, je ne chancelle pas.
2 Sonde-moi, Seigneur! éprouve-moi, Fais passer au creuset mes reins et mon cœur ;
3 Car ta grâce est devant mes yeux, Et je marche dans ta vérité.
4 Je ne m’assieds pas avec les hommes faux, Je ne vais pas avec les gens dissimulés;
5 Je hais l’assemblée de ceux qui font le mal, Je ne m’assieds pas avec les méchants.
6 Je lave mes mains dans l’innocence, Et je vais autour de ton autel, ô Seigneur!
7 Pour éclater en actions de grâces, Et raconter toutes tes merveilles.
8 Seigneur! j’aime le séjour de ta maison, Le lieu où ta gloire habite.
9 N’enlève pas mon âme avec les pécheurs, Ma vie avec les hommes de sang,
10 Dont les mains sont criminelles Et la droite pleine de présents!
11 Moi, je marche dans l’intégrité; Délivre-moi et aie pitié de moi!
12 Mon pied est ferme dans la droiture: Je bénirai le Seigneur dans les assemblées.

Psalm 26
Of David.
1 Vindicate me, LORD,
for I have led a blameless life;
I have trusted in the LORD
and have not faltered.
2 Test me, LORD, and try me,
examine my heart and my mind;
3 for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love
and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.
4 I do not sit with the deceitful,
nor do I associate with hypocrites.
5 I abhor the assembly of evildoers
and refuse to sit with the wicked.
6 I wash my hands in innocence,
and go about your altar, LORD,
7 proclaiming aloud your praise
and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 LORD, I love the house where you live,
the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not take away my soul along with sinners,
my life with those who are bloodthirsty,
10 in whose hands are wicked schemes,
whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 I lead a blameless life;
deliver me and be merciful to me.
12 My feet stand on level ground;
in the great congregation I will praise the LORD.

29 dicembre 2021 Davanti al presepe pregando per Paolo, per tutti i rapiti e i prigionieri e per i rifugiati sotto le tende ricordiamoci con questo Salmo che io è la nostra luce e la nostra salvezza

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!

مَزْمُورٌ لِدَاوُدَ.

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
المُحِيطِينَ بِي،
فَأُقَدِّمُ فِي هَيْكَلِهِ ذَبَائِحِي بِهُتَافِ الفَرَحِ،
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 novembre 2021, 100 mesi trascorsi dal rapimento di Paolo, affidiamolo al Signore ovunque sia, insieme a tutti i rapiti e i prigionieri. Affidiamo al Signore i nostri paesi affinchè il deserto possa di nuovo fiorire.

Salmo 41
Io sono il Signore tuo Dio che ti tengo per la destra e ti dico: «Non temere, io ti vengo in aiuto». Non temere, vermiciattolo di Giacobbe, larva di Israele; io vengo in tuo aiuto – oracolo del Signore- tuo redentore è il Santo di Israele. Ecco, ti rendo come una trebbia acuminata, nuova, munita di molte punte; tu trebbierai i monti e li stritolerai, ridurrai i colli in pula. Li vaglierai e il vento li porterà via, il turbine li disperderà. Tu, invece, gioirai nel Signore, ti vanterai del Santo di Israele. I miseri e i poveri cercano acqua ma non ce n’è, la loro lingua è riarsa per la sete; io, il Signore, li ascolterò; io, Dio di Israele, non li abbandonerò. Farò scaturire fiumi su brulle colline, fontane in mezzo alle valli; cambierò il deserto in un lago d’acqua, la terra arida in sorgenti. Pianterò cedri nel deserto, acacie, mirti e ulivi; porrò nella steppa cipressi, olmi insieme con abeti; perché vedano e sappiano, considerino e comprendano a un tempo che questo ha fatto la mano del Signore, lo ha creato il Santo di Israele.

Isaïe 41, 13-20
Je suis le Seigneur ton Dieu, Qui fortifie ta droite, Qui te dis : Ne crains rien, Je viens à ton secours. Ne crains rien, vermisseau de Jacob, Faible reste d’Israël ; Je viens à ton secours, dit l’Éternel, Et le Saint d’Israël est ton sauveur. Voici, je fais de toi un traîneau aigu, tout neuf, Garni de pointes ; Tu écraseras, tu broieras les montagnes, Et tu rendras les collines semblables à de la balle. Tu les vanneras, et le vent les emportera, Et un tourbillon les dispersera. Mais toi, tu te réjouiras en l’Éternel, Tu mettras ta gloire dans le Saint d’Israël. Les malheureux et les indigents cherchent de l’eau, et il n’y en a point ; Leur langue est desséchée par la soif. Moi, l’Éternel, je les exaucerai ; Moi, le Dieu d’Israël, je ne les abandonnerai pas. Je ferai jaillir des fleuves sur les collines, Et des sources au milieu des vallées ; Je changerai le désert en étang, Et la terre aride en courants d’eau ; Je mettrai dans le désert le cèdre, l’acacia, Le myrte et l’olivier ; Je mettrai dans les lieux stériles Le cyprès, l’orme et le buis, tous ensemble ; Afin qu’ils voient, qu’ils sachent, Qu’ils observent et considèrent Que la main de l’Éternel a fait ces choses, Que le Saint d’Israël en est l’auteur.

Isaiah 41, 13-20
I am the Lord your God, I grasp you by your right hand; I tell you, ‘Do not be afraid, I shall help you.’ Do not be afraid, Jacob, you worm! You little handful of Israel! I shall help you, declares God; your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. Look, I am making you into a threshing-sledge, new, with double teeth; you will thresh and beat the mountains to dust and reduce the hills to straw. You will winnow them and the wind will carry them off, the gale will scatter them; whereas you will rejoice in God, will glory in the Holy One of Israel. The oppressed and needy search for water, and there is none, their tongue is parched with thirst. I, God, shall answer them, I, the God of Israel, shall not abandon them. I shall open up rivers on barren heights and water-holes down in the ravines; I shall turn the desert into a lake and dry ground into springs of water. I shall plant the desert with cedar trees, acacias, myrtles and olives; in the wastelands I shall put cypress trees, plane trees and box trees side by side; so that people may see and know, so that they may all observe and understand that the hand of God has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

أشعيا ٤١، ٣١-۲٠
أَنَا الرَّبُّ إِلهُكَ الْمُمْسِكُ بِيَمِينِكَ، الْقَائِلُ لَكَ: لاَ تَخَفْ. أَنَا أُعِينُكَ.
لاَ تَخَفْ يَا دُودَةَ يَعْقُوبَ، يَا شِرْذِمَةَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. أَنَا أُعِينُكَ، يَقُولُ الرَّبُّ، وَفَادِيكَ قُدُّوسُ إِسْرَائِيلَ.
هأَنَذَا قَدْ جَعَلْتُكَ نَوْرَجًا مُحَدَّدًا جَدِيدًا ذَا أَسْنَانٍ. تَدْرُسُ الْجِبَالَ وَتَسْحَقُهَا، وَتَجْعَلُ الآكَامَ كَالْعُصَافَةِ.
تُذَرِّيهَا فَالرِّيحُ تَحْمِلُهَا وَالْعَاصِفُ تُبَدِّدُهَا، وَأَنْتَ تَبْتَهِجُ بِالرَّبِّ. بِقُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ تَفْتَخِرُ.
اَلْبَائِسُونَ وَالْمَسَاكِينُ طَالِبُونَ مَاءً وَلاَ يُوجَدُ. لِسَانُهُمْ مِنَ الْعَطَشِ قَدْ يَبِسَ. أَنَا الرَّبُّ أَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُمْ. أَنَا إِلهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ لاَ أَتْرُكُهُمْ.
أَفْتَحُ عَلَى الْهِضَابِ أَنْهَارًا، وَفِي وَسَطِ الْبِقَاعِ يَنَابِيعَ. أَجْعَلُ الْقَفْرَ أَجَمَةَ مَاءٍ، وَالأَرْضَ الْيَابِسَةَ مَفَاجِرَ مِيَاهٍ.
أَجْعَلُ فِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ الأَرْزَ وَالسَّنْطَ وَالآسَ وَشَجَرَةَ الزَّيْتِ. أَضَعُ فِي الْبَادِيَةِ السَّرْوَ وَالسِّنْدِيَانَ وَالشَّرْبِينَ مَعًا.
لِكَيْ يَنْظُرُوا وَيَعْرِفُوا وَيَتَنَبَّهُوا وَيَتَأَمَّلُوا مَعًا أَنَّ يَدَ الرَّبِّ فَعَلَتْ هذَا وَقُدُّوسَ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَبْدَعَهُ.

29 ottobre 2021 Preghiamo per Paolo, per tutti gli scomparsi, i prigionieri, per la nostra terra e per un’umanità riconciliata. Per quanto ci sentiamo deboli e impotenti davanti a tutto quello che accade, sappiamo che Dio può tutto. In Lui solo confidiamo.

Salmo 18
1 Al maestro del coro. Di Davide, servo del Signore, che rivolse al Signore le parole di questo canto, quando il Signore lo liberò dal potere di tutti i suoi nemici, e dalla mano di Saul. Disse dunque:
2 Ti amo, Signore, mia forza,
3 Signore, mia roccia, mia fortezza, mio liberatore;
mio Dio, mia rupe, in cui trovo riparo;
mio scudo e baluardo, mia potente salvezza.
4 Invoco il Signore, degno di lode,
e sarò salvato dai miei nemici.
5 Mi circondavano flutti di morte,
mi travolgevano torrenti impetuosi;
6 già mi avvolgevano i lacci degli inferi,
già mi stringevano agguati mortali.
7 Nel mio affanno invocai il Signore,
nell’angoscia gridai al mio Dio:
dal suo tempio ascoltò la mia voce,
al suo orecchio pervenne il mio grido.
17 Stese la mano dall’alto e mi prese,
mi sollevò dalle grandi acque,
18 mi liberò da nemici potenti,
da coloro che mi odiavano
ed erano più forti di me.
19 Mi assalirono nel giorno di sventura,
ma il Signore fu mio sostegno;
20 mi portò al largo,
mi liberò perché mi vuol bene.
47 Viva il Signore e benedetta la mia rupe,
sia esaltato il Dio della mia salvezza.

Psalm 18 (1-7, 17-20, 47)
1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who addressed the words of this song to the LORD on the day when the LORD rescued him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. He said:
2 I love you, O LORD, my strength.
3 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
4 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
5 The cords of death encompassed me;
the torrents of destruction assailed me;
6 the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.
7 In my distress I called upon the LORD;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.
17 He sent from on high, he took me;
he drew me out of many waters.
18 He rescued me from my strong enemy
and from those who hated me,
for they were too mighty for me.
19 They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
but the LORD was my support.
20 He brought me out into a broad place;
he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
47 The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock,
and exalted be the God of my salvation.

Psaume 18 (1-7, 17-20, 47)
1Au chef des chantres. Du serviteur du Seigneur, de David, qui adressa au Seigneur les paroles de ce cantique, lorsque le Seigneur l’eut délivré de la main de tous ses ennemis et de la main de Saül. Il dit:
2 Je t’aime, ô Seigneur, ma force!
3 Seigneur, mon rocher, ma forteresse, mon libérateur!
Mon Dieu, mon rocher, où je trouve un abri!
Mon bouclier, la force qui me sauve, ma haute retraite!
4 Je m’écrie: Loué soit le Seigneur!
Et je suis délivré de mes ennemis.
5 Les liens de la mort m’avaient environné,
Et les torrents de la destruction m’avaient épouvanté;
6 Les liens du séjour des morts m’avaient enlacé,
Les filets de la mort m’avaient surpris.
7 Dans ma détresse, j’ai invoqué le Seigneur,
J’ai crié à mon Dieu;
De son palais, il a entendu ma voix,
Et mon cri est parvenu devant lui à ses oreilles.
17 Il étendit sa main d’en haut, il me saisit,
Il me retira des grandes eaux;
18 Il me délivra de mon adversaire puissant,
De mes ennemis qui étaient plus forts que moi.
19 Ils m’avaient surpris au jour de ma détresse;
Mais le Seigneur fut mon appui.
20 Il m’a mis au large,
Il m’a sauvé, parce qu’il m’aime.
47 Le Seigneur est vivant, et béni soit mon rocher!
Que le Dieu de mon salut soit exalté.

فَخَلَصْتُ مِنْ أعْدائِي!
٥ حِبالُ المَوتِ أحاطَتْ بِي،
وَسُيُولُ الهَلاكِ اقتَحَمَتْنِي.
٦ حِبالُ الهاوِيَةِ التَفَّتْ حَولِي.
وَأفْخاخُ المَوْتِ مِنْ أمامِي.
٧ فِي ضِيقِي دَعَوتُ اللهَ،
دَعَوتُ إلهِي.
وَكانَ اللهُ فِي هَيكَلِهِ،

١۸ خَلَّصَنِي مِنْ أعْدائِي الذينَ هُمْ أقْوَى مِنِّي.
أنْقَذَنِي مِنْ كارِهِيَّ،
فَقَدْ كانُوا أقْوَى مِنْ أنْ أُواجَهَهُم.
١٩ وَبينَما كُنْتُ فِي مأزِقٍ،
هاجَمَنِي أعْدائِي،

أمَجِّدُ صَخْرَتِي!
اللَّهُ عَظِيمٌ!
هُوَ الصَّخْرَةُ الّتِي تُنْقِذُنِي.

29 settembre 2021 Preghiamo per Padre Paolo, tutti gli scomparsi e il nostro mondo sofferente pregando che il dolore e la fatica nel seminare per il bene siano la culla della gioia di un’abbondante mietitura

Salmo 126
1 Canto delle ascensioni.
Quando il SIGNORE ricondusse i prigionieri di Sion,
ci sembrava di sognare.
2 Allora la nostra bocca si aprì al sorriso,
la nostra lingua si sciolse in canti di gioia.
Allora si diceva tra i popoli:
«Il SIGNORE ha fatto grandi cose per loro».
3 Grandi cose ha fatto il SIGNORE per noi,
ci ha colmati di gioia.
4 Riconduci, SIGNORE, i nostri prigionieri,
come i torrenti del Negheb.
5 Chi semina nelle lacrime
mieterà con giubilo.
6 Nell’andare, se ne va e piange,
portando la semente da gettare,
ma nel tornare, viene con giubilo,
portando i suoi covoni.
Psaume 126
1 Chant des montées.
Quand le SEIGNEUR ramena les captifs de Sion, nous étions comme en rêve.
2 Alors notre bouche s’emplit de rire, et nos lèvres de chants de joie; alors on dit parmi les nations : Le SEIGNEUR a fait pour eux de grandes choses !
3 Le SEIGNEUR a fait de grandes choses pour nous; nous étions dans la joie.
4 O SEIGNEUR ! ramène nos captifs, comme les torrents au Négeb !
5 Ceux qui sèment dans les larmes moissonneront dans les chants de joie.
6 On s’en va en pleurant, portant la semence; on revient dans la joie, portant ses gerbes.

Psalm 126
1A song of ascents.
When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
‘The LORD has done great things for them.’
3 The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, LORD,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.

مزمور ١۲٦

عندَما يَرُدُّ اللهُ الشَّعبَ المَنفِيَّ إلَى صِهْيَوْنَ،
سَيَكُونُ ذَلِكَ أشبَهَ بِحُلمٍ!
۲ سَنَمتَلِئُ فَرَحاً وَنُرَنِّمُ تَرانِيمَ بَهِيجَةً.

29 agosto 2021 In questa festa di San Mosè l’Abbissino affidiamo all’intercessione del santo padrone di Deir Mar Musa la nostra preghiera, sperando da Dio solo la salvezza per Paolo, tutti i rapiti o prigionieri, e per il nostro mondo.

Salmo 62
1Al maestro del coro. Su «Iduthun». Salmo. Di Davide.
2 Solo in Dio riposa l’anima mia;
da lui la mia salvezza.
3 Lui solo è mia rupe e mia salvezza,
mia roccia di difesa: non potrò vacillare.
4 Fino a quando vi scaglierete contro un uomo,
per abbatterlo tutti insieme,
come muro cadente,
come recinto che crolla?
5 Tramano solo di precipitarlo dall’alto,
si compiacciono della menzogna.
Con la bocca benedicono,
e maledicono nel loro cuore.
6 Solo in Dio riposa l’anima mia,
da lui la mia speranza.
7 Lui solo è mia rupe e mia salvezza,
mia roccia di difesa: non potrò vacillare.
8 In Dio è la mia salvezza e la mia gloria;
il mio saldo rifugio, la mia difesa è in Dio.
9 Confida sempre in lui, o popolo,
davanti a lui effondi il tuo cuore,
nostro rifugio è Dio.
10 Sì, sono un soffio i figli di Adamo,
una menzogna tutti gli uomini,
insieme, sulla bilancia, sono meno di un soffio.
11 Non confidate nella violenza,
non illudetevi della rapina;
alla ricchezza, anche se abbonda,
non attaccate il cuore.
12 Una parola ha detto Dio,
due ne ho udite:
il potere appartiene a Dio,
tua, Signore, è la grazia;
13 secondo le sue opere
tu ripaghi ogni uomo.

Psalm 62
To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
3 How long will you assail a person,
will you batter your victim, all of you,
as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.
They take pleasure in falsehood;
they bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse.Selah
5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honour;
my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.Selah
9 Those of low estate are but a breath,
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no confidence in extortion,
and set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
11 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12 and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
For you repay to all
according to their work.

Psaume 62
Au chef des chantres. D’après Jeduthun. Psaume de David.
2 Oui, c’est en Dieu que mon âme se confie;
De lui vient mon salut.
3 Oui, c’est lui qui est mon rocher et mon salut;
Ma haute retraite: je ne chancellerai guère.
4 Jusqu’à quand vous jetterez-vous sur un homme,
Chercherez-vous tous à l’abattre,
Comme une muraille qui penche,
Comme une clôture qu’on renverse?
5 Ils conspirent pour le précipiter de son poste élevé;
Ils prennent plaisir au mensonge;
Ils bénissent de leur bouche,
Et ils maudissent dans leur cœur. – Pause.
6 Oui, mon âme, confie-toi en Dieu!
Car de lui vient mon espérance.
7 Oui, c’est lui qui est mon rocher et mon salut;
Ma haute retraite: je ne chancellerai pas.
8 Sur Dieu reposent mon salut et ma gloire;
Le rocher de ma force, mon refuge, sont en Dieu.
9 En tout temps, peuples, confiez-vous en lui,
Répandez vos cœurs en sa présence!
Dieu est notre refuge, – Pause.
10 Oui, vanité, les fils de l’homme!
Mensonge, les fils de l’homme!
Dans une balance ils monteraient
Tous ensemble, plus légers qu’un souffle.
11 Ne vous confiez pas dans la violence,
Et ne mettez pas un vain espoir dans la rapine;
Quand les richesses s’accroissent,
N’y attachez pas votre cœur.
12 Dieu a parlé une fois;
Deux fois j’ai entendu ceci:
C’est que la force est à Dieu.
13 A toi aussi, Seigneur! la bonté;
Car tu rends à chacun selon ses œuvres.

مزمور ٦۲
لِقائِدِ المُرَنِّمِينَ، لِيَدُوثُونَ. مَزمُورٌ لِداوُدَ.

۱ انتَظِرِي يا نَفسِيَ اللهَ،
فَمِنهُ يَأتِي خَلاصِي!
۲ هُوَ حِصْنِي وَمُخَلِّصِي!
هُوَ قَلعَتِي المُرتَفِعَةُ.
فَلا تَهُزُّنِي كَثْرَةُ أعْدائِي!
۳ إلَى مَتَى تُواصِلُونَ الهُجُومَ عَلَيَّ؟
إلَى أنْ تَهدِمُونِي كَحائِطٍ مائِلٍ؟
٤ رُغمَ كَرامَتِي، يَتَآمَرُونَ لِتَدمِيرِي،
مَسرُورِينَ بِأكاذِيبِهِمْ.
أمامَ النّاسِ يَمدَحُونَنِي،
ثُمَّ يَلعَنُونَنِي فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ.
٥ انتَظِرِي يا نَفسِيَ اللهَ،
فَمِنهُ يَأتِي رَجائِي.
٦ هُوَ حِصنِي وَمُخَلِّصِي!
هُوَ قَلعَتِي المُرتَفِعَةُ فَلا أخزَى!
٧ عَلَى اللهِ تَعتَمِدُ كَرامَتِي وَخَلاصِي.
هُوَ حِصنِي وَقَلعَتِي المُرتَفِعَةُ.
۸ ثِقُوا بِهِ أيُّها البَشَرُ.
اسكُبُوا قُلُوبَكُمْ أمامَهُ.
اللهُ هُوَ مَلجَأُنا.
٩ لَكِنَّ البَشَرَ بُخارٌ لا أكثَرَ.
ما هُمْ إلّا كِذبَةٌ.
وَفِي المَوازِينِ لا يَزِنُونَ أكثَرَ مِنْ بُخارٍ.
۱٠ لا تَتَّكِلُوا عَلَى الانتِزاعِ مِنَ الآخَرِينَ،
وَلا تَضَعُوا آمالاً كاذِبَةً فِي السَّرِقَةِ.
وَإذا زادَتْ ثَروَتُكُمْ،
لا تَسمَحُوا بِأنْ تَتَعَلَّقَ قُلُوبُكُمْ بِالثَّرْوَةِ.
١١ حَينَ تَكَلَّمَ اللهُ مَرَّةً،
فَهِمْتُ هَذَينِ الأمرَينِ:
»أنَّ القُوَّةَ للهِ،
١٢ وَأنَّ الرَّحمَةَ لَكَ يا رَبُّ. «
أنتَ تُجازِي الجَميعَ بِحَسَبِ أعمالِهِمْ.

29 luglio 2021 Otto anni trascorsi dal sequestro di Paolo, preghiamo per lui e per tutti gli scomparsi attraverso il Salmo 146

1 Alleluia.
Loda il Signore, anima mia:
2 loderò il Signore per tutta la mia vita,
finché vivo canterò inni al mio Dio.

3 Non confidate nei potenti,
in un uomo che non può salvare.
4 Esala lo spirito e ritorna alla terra;
in quel giorno svaniscono tutti i suoi disegni.

5 Beato chi ha per aiuto il Dio di Giacobbe,
chi spera nel Signore suo Dio,
6 creatore del cielo e della terra,
del mare e di quanto contiene.
Egli è fedele per sempre,
7 rende giustizia agli oppressi,
dà il pane agli affamati.

Il Signore libera i prigionieri,
8 il Signore ridona la vista ai ciechi,
il Signore rialza chi è caduto,
il Signore ama i giusti,
9 il Signore protegge lo straniero,
egli sostiene l’orfano e la vedova,
ma sconvolge le vie degli empi.

10 Il Signore regna per sempre,
il tuo Dio, o Sion, di generazione in generazione.
Alleluia.

Psaume 146
1 Alleluia.
Loue le Seigneur, ô mon âme !
2 Je veux louer le Seigneur tant que je vis,
je veux jouer pour mon Dieu tant que je dure.

3 Ne mettez point votre foi dans les princes :
un fils de la glaise ne peut sauver;
4 il rend le souffle, il retourne à sa glaise,
en ce jour-là périssent ses pensées.

5 Heureux qui a l’appui du Dieu de Jacob,
et son espoir dans le Seigneur son Dieu :
6 lui qui a fait le ciel et la terre
et la mer, et tout ce qu’ils renferment.
Il garde à jamais la vérité,
7 il rend justice aux opprimés,
il donne aux affamés du pain,

Le Seigneur délie les enchaînés.
8 Le Seigneur rend les aveugles voyants,
le Seigneur redresse les courbés,
9 le Seigneur protège l’étranger,
il soutient la veuve et l’orphelin.
Le Seigneur aime les justes
mais détourne la voie des impies.

10 Le Seigneur règne pour les siècles,
ton Dieu, ô Sion, d’âge en âge!
Alleluia.

Psalm 146
1 Hallelujah !
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
7 who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets the prisoners free;
8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 The LORD will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Hallelujah!

مزمور ١٤٦
١ هَلِّلُويا!
سَبِّحِي اللهَ، يا نَفسِي!
۲ طَوالَ حَياتِي سَأُسَبِّحُ اللهَ.
لإلَهِي سَأُرَنِّمُ ما دُمتُ حَيّاً.
٣ عَلَى الأُمَراءِ لا تَتَّكِلْ،
فَلَيسَ عِندَ بَشَرٍ قُدرَةٌ عَلَى أنْ يُخَلِّصَ.
٤ هُمْ أيضاً يَمُوتُونَ، وَإلَى التُّرابِ يَعُودُونَ،
وَكُلُّ أفكارِهِمْ وَخُطَطِهِمْ لا تُسفِرُ عَنْ شَيءٍ.
٥ هَنِيئاً لِمَنْ إلَهُ يَعْقُوبَ مُعِينُهُ،
هَنِيئاً لِمَنْ يَتَّكِلُ عَلَى إلَهِهِ.
٦ هُوَ الَّذِي صَنَعَ السَّماءَ وَالأرْضَ وَالبَحرَ،
وَكُلَّ ما فِيها.
هُوَ الَّذِي إلَى الأبَدِ يَحفَظُ الحَقَّ!
٧ هُوَ الَّذِي يُنصِفُ المَظلُومِينَ،
وَيُطعِمُ الجِياعَ.
اللهُ يُطلِقُ السُّجَناءَ.
٨ اللهُ يَفتَحُ عُيُونَ العُميِ،
وَيُقِيمُ العاثِرِينَ.
اللهُ يُحِبُّ الأبرارَ.
٩ اللهُ يَحمِي الغُرَباءَ،
وَيُطعِمُ الأرامِلَ وَاليَتامَى،
أمّا الأثَمَةُ فَيُحبِطُ طُرُقَهُمْ.
١٠ لِيَملُكِ اللهُ إلَى الأبَدِ!
جِيلاً بَعدَ جِيلٍ لِيَملُكْ إلَهُكِ، يا صِهْيَوْنَ.
هَلِّلُويا!
