The Cambridge Press, 1638-1692: A Reexamination of the Evidence concerning the Bay Psalm Book and the Eliot Indian Bible as Well as Other Contemporary Books and People

By George Parker Winship | Go to book overview

APPENDIX A
A COMPARISON OF THE TEXT OF THE BAY PSALM BOOK OF 1640 AND THE REVISED NEW ENGLAND PSALMS OF 1648

A portion of the text of the first three and the last three Psalms, as printed in the BAY PSALM BOOK of 1640, is in the left-hand column below. The righthand column gives the variations which appear in the revised edition adopted in 1648 and repeatedly reprinted as the NEW ENGLAND PSALMS during the ensuing century. These illustrate statements made in Chapter III of this narrative.

Lines marked . . . in the right-hand column repeat the wording of the 1640 version, although these lines sometimes give a modernized spelling and punctuation. When the punctuation at the end of these lines is altered, this is sometimes, but not always, shown. The asterisks which appear in some of these lines occur in the 1648 (?) and many subsequent editions, to mark the passages selected for the alternative renderings reprinted in Appendix B.

BAY PSALM BOOK: 1640NEW ENGLAND PSALMS: 1648
PSAL. 1
O Blessed man, that in th' advice
of wicked doeth not walk:
nor stand in sinners way, nor sit
in chayre of scornfull folk.
O Blessed man that walks not in
th'advice of wicked men
Nor standeth in the sinners way
nor scorners seat sits in.
2But in the law of Iehovah,
is his longing delight:
and in his law doth meditate,
by day and eke by night.
But he upon Jehovah's law
doth set his whole delight:
. . .
Both in the day and night.
3And he shall be like to a tree
planted by water-rivers:
that in his season yeilds his fruit,
and his leafe never withers.
He shall be like a planted tree
by water brooks, which shall
In his due season yield his fruit.
. whose leaf shall never fall:
4And all he doth, shall prosper well,
the wicked are not so:
but they are like unto the chaffe,
which winde drives to and fro.
. . .
