I bring the intelligible coals of the divine fire
that consume the complete armour of demons,
that melt the frost of spiritual sufferings,
that push away the mist of indecent thoughts
and instil light in mortal hearts.
For I am the book of Psalms: if you benefit from them,
you chase away the whole storm from your mind.
