Copyright © 1991 by
Presbyterian Heritage Publications
The text for this edition is based upon The Psalms of David, in Metre: Allowed by the Authority of the Kirk of Scotland, and of Several Branches of the Presbyterian Church in the United States; with Notes, Exhibiting the Connexion, Explaining the Sense, and for Directing and Animating the Devotion: by John Brown, Late Minister of the Gospel at Haddington (Philadelphia: Hogan & Thompson, 1841). The publisher has also consulted the first edition (Edinburgh, 1775). The text of the Scottish Metrical Psalms was authorized by the Church of Scotland in 1650.
References originally in Roman numerals have been changed to Arabic numerals. The Preface and Notes are by John Brown. The Topical Table of the Psalms was included in the American edition (1841), without attribution. The present publisher has provided the Glossary, Metrical Index, and Index of First and Familiar Lines.
The electronic version of this psalter has been provided as a convenience for our readers; the psalter is also available in printed form, as a hardcover book.
