Psalms Chapters

1 [Psalm Of David When he was in the cave Prayer] To Yahweh I cry out with my plea. To Yahweh I cry out with entreaty.

2 I pour out my worry in his presence, in his presence I unfold my troubles.

3 However faint my spirit; you are watching over my path. On the road I have to travel they have hidden a trap for me.

4 Look on my right and see -- there is no one who recognises me. All refuge is denied me, no one cares whether I live or die.

5 I cry out to you, Yahweh, I affirm, 'You are my refuge, my share in the land of the living!'

6 Listen to my calling, for I am miserably weak. Rescue me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.

7 Lead me out of prison that I may praise your name. The upright gather round me because of your generosity to me.

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.
