Psalms Chapters

1 [For the choirmaster Tune: 'Do not destroy' Psalm Of Asaph Song] We give thanks to you, God, we give thanks to you, as we call upon your name, as we recount your wonders.

2 'At the appointed time I myself shall dispense justice.

3 The earth quakes and all its inhabitants; it is I who hold its pillars firm.Pause

4 'I said to the boastful, "Do not boast!" to the wicked, "Do not flaunt your strength!

5 Do not flaunt your strength so proudly, do not talk with that arrogant stance." '

6 No longer from east to west, no longer in the mountainous desert,

7 is God judging in uprightness, bringing some down, raising others.

8 Yahweh is holding a cup filled with a heady blend of wine; he will pour it, they will drink it to the dregs, all the wicked on earth will drink it.

9 But I shall speak out for ever, shall make music for the God of Jacob.

10 I shall break down all the strength of the wicked, and the strength of the upright will rise high.

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.

Source: The Very Reverend Dom (Joseph) Henry Wansbrough, OSB, MA (Oxon), STL (Fribourg), LSS (Rome), a monk of Ampleforth Abbey and a biblical scholar. He was General Editor of the New Jerusalem Bible. "New Jerusalem Bible, Regular Edition", pg. v.
