Psalms Chapters

1 [Psalm Of David In commemoration] Yahweh, do not correct me in anger, do not discipline me in wrath.

2 For your arrows have pierced deep into me, your hand has pressed down upon me.

3 Your indignation has left no part of me unscathed, my sin has left no health in my bones.

4 My sins stand higher than my head, they weigh on me as an unbearable weight.

5 I have stinking, festering wounds, thanks to my folly.

6 I am twisted and bent double, I spend my days in gloom.

7 My loins burn with fever, no part of me is unscathed.

8 Numbed and utterly crushed I groan in distress of heart.

9 Lord, all my longing is known to you, my sighing no secret from you,

10 my heart is throbbing, my strength has failed, the light has gone out of my eyes.

11 Friends and companions shun my disease, even the dearest of them keep their distance.

12 Those with designs on my life lay snares, those who wish me ill speak of violence and hatch treachery all day long.

13 But I hear nothing, as though I were deaf, as though dumb, saying not a word.

14 I am like the one who, hearing nothing, has no sharp answer to make.

15 For in you, Yahweh, I put my hope, you, Lord my God, will give answer.

16 I said, 'Never let them gloat over me, do not let them take advantage of me if my foot slips.'

17 There is no escape for me from falling, no relief from my misery.

18 But I make no secret of my guilt, I am anxious at the thought of my sin.

19 There is no numbering those who oppose me without cause, no counting those who hate me unprovoked,

20 repaying me evil for good, slandering me for trying to do them good.

21 Yahweh, do not desert me, my God, do not stand aloof from me.

22 Come quickly to my help, Lord, my Saviour!

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.
