Any word on whether or not they'll continue to use the NKJV's Psalter?

O Lord although I desired to blot out
with my tears the handwriting of my many sins
And for the rest of my life to please Thee
through sincere repentance
Yet doth the enemy lead me astray as he wareth
against my sould with his cunning

O Lord before I utterly perish do Thou save me!

I wonder how much Hebrew (or even Aramaic) was used.  I have heard that they almost exclusively used the Septuagint.  Although, knowing one of the editors, I find this extremely hard to believe. 

Would they not use the Septuagint Psalter, since the emphasis will be on the LXX (according to my sources).

Do you mean the use of non-Septuagint sources in footnotes and cross-references, or in the actual translation of the text? Go on...give us the inside info!

I still use Sir Brenton's translation of the Septuagint. Even if this translation doesn't have the same technical merits, I'd still be interested in all of the notes.

According to my source they would use Hebrew (and rabbinical texts) for the translation.  The footnotes were not mentioned by him.  However I would think that he would push for a synthesis between Patristic exegesis and rabbinic wisdom that is not from one of the fringe groups.  But i'm not sure if that's the same with everyone on the board, just my 1 guy.
