Isaiah - Chapter 32
1 There will be a king who reigns uprightly and princes who rule with fair judgement;
2 each will be like a shelter from the wind, a refuge from the storm, like streams on arid ground, like the shade of a solid rock in a desolate land.
5 The fool will no longer be called generous, nor the rascal be styled bountiful.
6 For the fool speaks folly and his heart is set on villainy; he is godless in his actions and his words ascribe error to Yahweh; he starves the hungry of their food and refuses drink to the thirsty.
8 but the noble person plans only noble things, noble his every move.
13 for my people's soil where the bramble-bush will be growing and for all the happy houses, for the rejoicing city.
16 Fair judgement will fix its home in the desert, and uprightness live in this orchard,
17 and the product of uprightness will be peace, the effect of uprightness being quiet and security for ever.
18 My people will live in a peaceful home, in peaceful houses, tranquil dwellings.
20 You will be happy to sow wherever there is water and to let the ox and donkey roam free.

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.
