2 You have granted him his heart's desire, not denied him the prayer of his lips.
5 Great his glory through your saving help; you invest him with splendour and majesty.
7 For the king puts his trust in Yahweh; the faithful love of the Most High will keep him from falling.
10 You will purge the earth of their descendants, the human race of their posterity.
12 since you will make them turn tail, by shooting your arrows in their faces.

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.
