Psalms Chapters

1 [Of David] Yahweh, be my judge! I go on my way in innocence, my trust in Yahweh never wavers.

2 Probe me, Yahweh, examine me, Test my heart and my mind in the fire.

3 For your faithful love is before my eyes, and I live my life by your truth.

4 No sitting with wastrels for me, no travelling with hypocrites;

5 I hate the company of sinners, I refuse to sit down with the wicked.

6 I will wash my hands in innocence and join the procession round your altar, Yahweh,

7 to make heard the sound of thanksgiving, to proclaim all your wonders.

8 Yahweh, I love the beauty of your house and the place where your glory dwells.

9 Do not couple me with sinners, nor my life with men of violence,

10 whose hands are stained with guilt, their right hands heavy with bribes.

11 In innocence I will go on my way; ransom me, take pity on me.

12 I take my stand on the right path; I will bless you, Yahweh, in the assemblies.

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.
