Doauy-Rheims Psalter examples to compare to Mr. James examples:
Ps 55:7 - (1610) They will inhabit and keep secret: they will observe my heel.
(1752) They will dwell and hide themselves, and mark my steps.
Ps 106:27 - (1610) They were troubled, and were moved as a drunken man: and all their Wisdom was devoured.
(1752) They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man, and all their wisdom was swallowed up.
Ps. 16:14 - (1610) They are filled with children: and they have left their remnants to their little ones
(1752) They are full of children, and they have left the rest of their substance for their little ones.
Ps. 17:30 - (1610) Because in thee I shall be delivered from temptation, and in my God I shall go over the wall.
(1752) For in thee shall I be delivered from temptation, and with the help of my God I shall leap over the wall.
Psalm 50 (1610):
Unto the end, a Psalm of David,
Pertaining not only to David, but also to all penitents, especially of the new testament. when Nathan the Prophet came to him, after that he had sinned with Bethsabee.
3 HAVE mercy on me o God,according to thy great mercy.
And according to the multitude of thy commiserations, take away Mine iniquity.
4 Wash me more amply from mine iniquity: & cleanse me from my sin.
5 Because I do know Mine iniquity: and my sin is before me always.
6 To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: that thou
mayest be justified in thy words, and mayest overcome when thou art judged.
7 For behold I was conceived in iniquities: & my mother conceived me in sins.
8 For behold thou hast loved truth: the uncertain, and hidden things of
thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me.
9 Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: thou shalt
wash me, and I shall be made whiter then snow.
10 To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness, and the bones humbled shall rejoice.
11 Turn away thy face from my sins: and wipe away all mine iniquities
12 Create a clean heart in me O God: and renew a right spirit in my bowels.
13 Cast me not away from thy face: and thy holy spirit take not from me.
14 Render unto me the joy of thy salvation? and confirm me with the principal spirit,
15 I will teach the unjust thy ways: and the impious shall be converted to thee.
16 Deliver me from bloods O God, the God of my salvation: and my tongue shall exult for thy justice.
17 Lord, thou wilt open my lips: & my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
18 Because if thou wouldest have had sacrifice, I had verily given it: with holocausts thou wilt not be delighted.
19 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite, and humbled heart, O God thou wilt not despise.
20 Deal favorably O Lord in thy good will with Sion: that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up.
21 Then shalt thou accept sacrifice of justice, oblations, & holocausts: then shall they lay calves upon thine altar.
Yes, from comparing his examples, though there are still come differences, I have a feeling that David James work is something I am comfortable with enough to accept that this is an unquestionalbly truly orthodox psalter. His is exactly the form of work that I had hoped someone would eventually do. This is wonderful!
Congratulations and Glory be to God!
