Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Psalm Of David] Listen, God, to my voice as I plead, protect my life from fear of the enemy;

2 hide me from the league of the wicked, from the gang of evil-doers.

3 They sharpen their tongues like a sword, aim their arrows of poisonous abuse,

4 shoot at the innocent from cover, shoot suddenly, with nothing to fear.

5 They support each other in their evil designs, they discuss how to lay their snares. 'Who will see us?' they say,

6 'or will penetrate our secrets?' He will do that, he who penetrates human nature to its depths, the depths of the heart.

7 God has shot them with his arrow, sudden were their wounds.

8 He brings them down because of their tongue, and all who see them shake their heads.

9 Everyone will be awestruck, proclaim what God has done, and understand why he has done it.

10 The upright will rejoice in Yahweh, will take refuge in him, and all the honest will praise him.

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.
