»The text is based on an English translation of the Masoretic Hebrew text corrected to the Septuagint and other ancient witnesses (Dead Sea Scrolls, etc.) (…) The text was also corrected to conform to the liturgical use of the Orthodox Church. Finally, the text was corrected for readability. The goal is a text that is faithful, majestic, and easy to understand when read or chanted aloud.«
