Psalms Chapters

1 [Song Psalm Of Asaph] God, do not remain silent, do not stay quiet or unmoved, God!

2 See how your enemies are in uproar, how those who hate you are rearing their heads.

3 They are laying plans against your people, conspiring against those you cherish;

4 they say, 'Come, let us annihilate them as a nation, the name of Israel shall be remembered no more!'

5 They conspire with a single mind, they conclude an alliance against you,

6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites,

7 Gebal, Ammon, Amalek, Philistia and the Tyrians;

8 even Assyria has joined them to reinforce the children of Lot.

9 Treat them like Midian and Sisera, like Jabin at the river Kishon;

10 wiped out at En-Dor, they served to manure the ground.

11 Treat their leaders like Oreb and Zeeb, all their commanders like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 for they said, 'Let us take for ourselves God's settlements.'

13 My God, treat them like thistledown, like chaff at the mercy of the wind.

14 As fire devours a forest, as a flame sets mountains ablaze,

15 so drive them away with your tempest, by your whirlwind fill them with terror.

16 Shame written all over their faces, let them seek your name, Yahweh!

17 Dishonour and terror be always theirs, death also and destruction.

18 Let them know that you alone bear the name of Yahweh, Most High over all the earth.

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.
