2 He took the right course, of converting the people, he rooted out the iniquitous abominations,
3 he set his heart on the Lord, in godless times he upheld the cause of religion.
5 for they handed their power over to others and their honour to a foreign nation.
9 for he mentioned the enemies in the downpour to the advantage of those who follow the right way.
11 How shall we extol Zerubbabel? He was like a signet ring on the right hand,

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.
