Psalms - Chapter 14

Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Of David] The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.' Their deeds are corrupt and vile, not one of them does right.

2 Yahweh looks down from heaven at the children of Adam. To see if a single one is wise, a single one seeks God.

3 All have turned away, all alike turned sour, not one of them does right, not a single one.

4 Are they not aware, all these evil-doers? They are devouring my people, this is the bread they eat, and they never call to Yahweh.

5 They will be gripped with fear, where there is no need for fear, for God takes the side of the upright;

6 you may mock the plans of the poor, but Yahweh is their refuge.

7 Who will bring from Zion salvation for Israel? When Yahweh brings his people home, what joy for Jacob, what happiness for Israel!

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.
