The Psalter According to the Seventy, Of Saint David the Prophet and King, Together with the Nine Odes And an Interpretation of How the Psalter Should be Recited Throughout the Whole Year

   
Translated from the Greek Septuagint by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery

“[...T]here is no service of the Church which is not replete with psalms: the Hours, Vespers, Compline, Matins, even the Divine Liturgy itself; all begin and end with the psalms. The prokeimena for Vespers and for the lections from the Epistles in the Liturgy, and the introits at the Little Entrance are all from the Psalter. In short, the psalms serve as the framework for all our Church services, and it is around this framework that, through the centuries, the other hymns and odes have been added. [...]Seeing, therefore, the need for a good English translation of the Church Psalter which could be used liturgically, we have laboured for many years now seeking to achieve a translation both poetic and as close to the original as possible.”
