Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster For strings For the octachord Psalm Of David] Yahweh, let your rebuke to me not be in anger, your punishment not in the heat of wrath.

2 Have pity on me, Yahweh, for I am fading away. Heal me, Yahweh, my bones are shaken,

3 my spirit is shaken to its very depths. But you, Yahweh . . . how long?

4 Yahweh, relent and save my life rescue me because of your faithful love,

5 for in death there is no remembrance of you; who could sing your praises in Sheol?

6 I am worn out with groaning, every night I drench my pillow and soak my bed with tears.

7 My eyes waste away with vexation. Arrogance from all my foes!

8 Away from me, all evil-doers! For Yahweh has heard the sound of my weeping,

9 Yahweh has heard my pleading. Yahweh will accept my prayer.

10 Let all my enemies be put to confusion, shaken to their depths, let them retreat in sudden confusion.

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.
