Psalms Chapters

1 [Psalm Of Asaph] God takes his stand in the divine assembly, surrounded by the gods he gives judgement.

2 'How much longer will you give unjust judgements and uphold the prestige of the wicked?

3 Let the weak and the orphan have justice, be fair to the wretched and the destitute.Pause

4 'Rescue the weak and the needy, save them from the clutches of the wicked.

5 'Ignorant and uncomprehending, they wander in darkness, while the foundations of the world are tottering.

6 I had thought, "Are you gods, are all of you sons of the Most High?"

7 No! you will die as human beings do, as one man, princes, you will fall.'

8 Arise, God, judge the world, for all nations belong to you.

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.
