The New Jerusalem Bible: Reader's Edition (NJB)

Doubleday, 1990
2015 in Review


This translation, often used in the Catholic Church, follows the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts. For the Old Testament the "Masoretic Text" established in the 8-9th centuries AD by Jewish scholars, is used. Only when this presents insuperable difficulties have emendations or other versions, such as the ancient Greek translation begun in 200 BC at Alexandria, the "Septuagint" (LXX), been used.

Note: Due to licensing restrictions, the New Jerusalem Bible can only be sold to customers whose billing address is in the United States or Canada.
