Psalms Chapters

1 [Song of Ascents] Often as men have attacked me since I was young -- let Israel repeat it-

2 often as men have attacked me since I was young, they have never overcome me.

3 On my back ploughmen have set to work, making long furrows,

4 but Yahweh the upright has shattered the yoke of the wicked.

5 Let all who hate Zion be thrown back in confusion,

6 let them be like grass on a roof, dried up before it is cut,

7 never to fill the reaper's arm nor the binder's lap.

8 And no passer-by will say, 'The blessing of Yahweh be on you! 'We bless you in the name of Yahweh.'

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.
