Job Chapters

1 Job spoke next. He said:

2 To one so weak, what a help you are, for the arm that is powerless, what a rescuer!

3 What excellent advice you give the unlearned, you are never at a loss for a helpful suggestion!

4 For whom are these words of yours intended and whence comes that wit you are now displaying?

5 The Shadows tremble underneath the earth, the waters and their denizens are afraid.

6 Before his eyes, Sheol is bare, Perdition itself is uncovered.

7 He it was who spread the North above the void and poised the earth on nothingness.

8 He fastens up the waters in his clouds, without the clouds giving way under their weight.

9 He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his cloud across it.

10 He has traced a ring on the surface of the waters, at the boundary between light and dark.

11 The pillars of the heavens tremble, awe-struck at his threats.

12 By his power, he has whipped up the Sea, by his skill, he has crushed Rahab.

13 His breath has made the heavens luminous, his hand transfixed the Fleeing Serpent.

14 This is only a fraction of what he has done and all we catch of it is the feeblest echo. But who can conceive the thunder of his power?

New Jerusalem Bible

New Jerusalem Bible

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.

Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.

Source: The Very Reverend Dom (Joseph) Henry Wansbrough, OSB, MA (Oxon), STL (Fribourg), LSS (Rome), a monk of Ampleforth Abbey and a biblical scholar. He was General Editor of the New Jerusalem Bible. "New Jerusalem Bible, Regular Edition", pg. v.
