The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752


The psalms are called by the Hebrews TEHILLIM, that is, Hymns of Praise.
The author, of a great part of them at least, was king David: but many
are of opinion that some of them were made by Asaph, and others whose
names are prefixed in the titles.

Psalms Chapter 1

1:1. Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of

1:2. But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall
meditate day and night.

1:3. And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running
waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf
shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.

1:4. Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind

shall perish.

The vain efforts of persecutors against Christ and his church.

2:1. Why have the Gentiles raged, and the prople devised vain things?

against the Lord, and against his Christ.

2:3. Let us break their bonds asunder: and let us cast away their yoke
from us.

2:4. He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: and the Lord shall
deride them.

2:5. Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his

2:6. But I am appointed king by him over Sion, his holy mountain,
preahing his comandment.

2:7. The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten

2:8. Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance,
and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.

2:9. Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt break them in
pieces like a potter's vessel.

2:10. And now, O ye kings, understand: receive instruction, you that
judge the earth.

2:11. Serve ye the Lord with fear: and rejoice unto him with trembling.

2:12. Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and you
perish from the just way.
