Psalms - Chapter 120

Psalms Chapters

1 [Song of Ascents *{* The Songs of Ascents (Pss 120-134) were sung by pilgrims on their way up to Jerusalem.} ] To Yahweh when I am in trouble I call and he answers me.

2 Yahweh, save me from lying lips and a treacherous tongue!

3 What will he repay you, what more, treacherous tongue?

4 War-arrows made sharp over red-hot charcoal.

5 How wretched I am, living in Meshech, dwelling in the tents of Kedar!

6 Too long have I lived among people who hate peace.

7 When I speak of peace they are all for war!

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.
