The 2004 Psalter

The Psalter

When saying a psalm aloud, the word 'blessed' is to be pronounced as two syllables: 'bless - ed'. Where spelled 'blest', the word is pronounced as one syllable.

A red dot marks the mid-point in each psalm verse where, traditionally, a pause is observed.

Each psalm or group of psalms may end with:

Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.
