1 The Lord fashioned human beings from the earth, to consign them back to it.
13 Their eyes saw the majesty of his glory, and their ears heard the glory of his voice.
25 Return to the Lord and renounce your sins, plead before his face, stop offending him.
28 The dead can praise no more than those who do not exist, only those with life and health can praise the Lord.

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.
