3 Praise Yahweh, for Yahweh is good, make music for his name -- it brings joy-
13 Yahweh, your name endures for ever, Yahweh, your memory is fresh from age to age.
14 For Yahweh vindicates his people, feels compassion for his servants.
18 Their makers will end up like them, everyone who relies on them.
21 Blessed be Yahweh from Zion, he who dwells in Jerusalem!

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.
