A Psalter for Prayer is the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed to read the Psalter at home. In addition, the contents include many texts not easily found in English, such as the Rite for Singing the Twelve Psalms, directions for reading the Psalter for the Departed, and much more. The Psalms and Nine Biblical Canticles have been adapted from the classic Miles 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 to the Latin and Church Slavonic translations.
