Psalms Chapters

1 [Psalm Song For the Sabbath] It is good to give thanks to Yahweh, to make music for your name, Most High,

2 to proclaim your faithful love at daybreak, and your constancy all through the night,

3 on the lyre, the ten-stringed lyre, to the murmur of the harp.

4 You have brought me joy, Yahweh, by your deeds, at the work of your hands I cry out,

5 'How great are your works, Yahweh, immensely deep your thoughts!'

6 Stupid people cannot realise this, fools do not grasp it.

7 The wicked may sprout like weeds, and every evil-doer flourish, but only to be eternally destroyed;

8 whereas you are supreme for ever, Yahweh.

9 Look how your enemies perish, how all evil-doers are scattered!

10 You give me the strength of the wild ox, you anoint me with fresh oil;

11 I caught sight of the ambush against me, overheard the plans of the wicked.

12 The upright will flourish like the palm tree, will grow like a cedar of Lebanon.

13 Planted in the house of Yahweh, they will flourish in the courts of our God.

14 In old age they will still bear fruit, will remain fresh and green,

15 to proclaim Yahweh's integrity; my rock, in whom no fault can be found.

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.
