15 Folly is anchored in the heart of a youth, the whip of instruction will rid him of it.
18 for it will be a delight to keep them deep within you to have them all ready on your lips.
27 if you have no means of paying your bed will be taken from under you.
29 You see someone alert at his business? His aim will be to serve kings; not for him the service of the obscure.

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.
