The second translation of the Psalms is the Greek Septuagint.

The Hebrew text used is Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) from the German Bible Society, , which is based on the Leningrad Codex (A.D. ). Occasionally, the ancient versions (Greek Septuagint, Aramaic Targums, Syriac Peshitta, and Latin Vulgate) are consulted if the Hebrew is ambiguous or obviously confused.
