Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Of the servant of Yahweh Of David] Sin is the oracle of the wicked in the depths of his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes.

2 He sees himself with too flattering an eye to detect and detest his guilt;

3 all he says is malicious and deceitful, he has turned his back on wisdom. To get his way

4 he hatches malicious plots even in his bed; once set on his evil course no wickedness is too much for him.

5 Yahweh, your faithful love is in the heavens, your constancy reaches to the clouds,

6 your saving justice is like towering mountains, your judgements like the mighty deep. Yahweh, you support both man and beast;

7 how precious, God, is your faithful love. So the children of Adam take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

8 They feast on the bounty of your house, you let them drink from your delicious streams;

9 in you is the source of life, by your light we see the light.

10 Maintain your faithful love to those who acknowledge you, and your saving justice to the honest of heart.

11 Do not let the foot of the arrogant overtake me or wicked hands drive me away.

12 There they have fallen, the evil-doers, flung down, never to rise again.

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.

Source: The Very Reverend Dom (Joseph) Henry Wansbrough, OSB, MA (Oxon), STL (Fribourg), LSS (Rome), a monk of Ampleforth Abbey and a biblical scholar. He was General Editor of the New Jerusalem Bible. "New Jerusalem Bible, Regular Edition", pg. v.
