Ashley Judd in "Divergent"
Kokkyō junjo o mochimasu
It is good to be alive.
It is pleasant to play.
Improve your talents with gainful play.
Don't let your light remain hidden away.
The earth was made for creativity
that you may celebrate your nativity.
There are those who think that because our nature
is human, it has been corrupted by the creation.
We were created for goodness.
We have the capacity to improve.
We had organized for defense, but
the larger organization dispelled us
and sent us into exile.
Now we are part of a larger body.
We have been gathered to learn from experience.
We have been healed from our infirmities.
Our wounds have been cleansed and dressed.
The stars have been numbered and named
for our happiness in recognition.
Growth is limited by law.
Power is cultivated to correct flaw.
Income inequality will be reduced
by education, economic enhancement,
and the prosecution
The lawless have to be prosecuted for crime
for justice with the legal system. The diligent
will achieve sustainable growth.
Make music for entertainment.
Sing with thanksgiving.
Dance in jubilation.
The heavens are clothed with clouds
to prepare rain for the earth!
Grass grows to prevent erosion.
Rocks are arranged for building and drainage.
Trees are cut for construction and production.
Plants are grown to feed with fiber.
This food feeds flocks, herds and people.
Young birds are fed seeds, bugs or worms.
Horses grow strong with grain and exercise.
Body is trained with mind of the right kind.
Pleasure is the principle that trains to avoid pain.
Reward is rendered to those who work for gain.
Liberty works within law for justice and prosperity.
Commerce is regulated for legal tender.
Defense is strengthened
with diplomatic alliance for trade and travel;
for the knowledge of foreign language and ways.
Peace transcends order with borders,
but boundaries must be respected.
Law is determined by gravity,
but energy flows within conductors
Snow or sand are scattered like ashes
to blanket the earth like cloth.
Weather is controlled by the closeness
of the face of the earth to the sun.
The equator gets more heat because
it is closest. The poles are coldest
because of their distance.
The wind and water flow
as the earth turns on her axis
in her orbit.
Truth is found by the objective
personal perception of the principles
of life in relation to those discovered
experience without logic.
Induction uses experiment as a means
by which a hypothesis is tested
to rule out false presumption.
Rhetoric uses over or understatement
to point to that which is believed to be true.
Judgement is formed by reason
that stands the test of time.
Liberty with justice is for all.
It does not belong
to one person, group
147 Laudate Dominum
How good it is to sing praises to our God! *
how pleasant it is to honor him with praise!
2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; *
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted *
and binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars *
and calls them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; *
there is no limit to his wisdom.
6 The Lord lifts up the lowly, *
but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; *
make music to our God upon the harp.
8 He covers the heavens with clouds *
and prepares rain for the earth;
9 He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *
and green plants to serve mankind.
10 He provides food for flocks and herds *
and for the young ravens when they cry.
11 He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *
he has no pleasure in the strength of a man;
12 But the Lord has pleasure in those who fear him, *
in those who await his gracious favor.
13 Worship the Lord, O Jerusalem; *
praise your God, O Zion;
14 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *
he has blessed your children within you.
15 He has established peace on your borders; *
he satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16 He sends out his command to the earth, *
and his word runs very swiftly.
17 He gives snow like wool; *
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
18 He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *
who can stand against his cold?
19 He sends forth his word and melts them; *
he blows with his wind, and the waters flow.
20 He declares his word to Jacob, *
his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
21 He has not done so to any other nation; *
to them he has not revealed his judgments.
