9780884651888: A Psalter for Prayer: An Adaptation of the Classic Miles Coverdale Translation, Augmented by Prayers and Instructional Material Drawn from Church Slavonic and Other Orthodox Christian Sources

Reaching back hundreds of years, this volume is the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed to read the Slavic Psalter at home in the Orthodox tradition. The contents include many texts traditionally printed in Orthodox Psalters and not easily found in English. With psalms and biblical canticles adapted from the classic Coverdale translation of the Book of Psalms and the King James Version of the Bible, the text has been carefully edited to agree with the original Greek of the Septuagint as well as with the Latin and Slavonic church translations.

Review:

"The translation is well done and beautiful, and I would say that it is worth having just for the additional material that it contains..." —Fr. John Whiteford, fatherjohn.blogspot.com
