Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Of David In commemoration] Be pleased, God, to rescue me, Yahweh, come quickly and help me!

2 Shame and dismay to those who seek my life! Back with them! Let them be humiliated who delight in my misfortunes.

3 Let them shrink away covered with shame, those who say to me, 'Aha, aha!'

4 But joy and happiness in you to all who seek you. Let them ceaselessly cry, 'God is great', who love your saving power.

5 Poor and needy as I am, God, come quickly to me! Yahweh, my helper, my Saviour, do not delay!

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.
