The author writes in a single page Introduction concerning the translation,
»Our language changes constantly, and in translating the Psalms, I have tried to use most commonly-used words and phrases that people of the 21st century are generally familiar with. (…) There are instances where the Hebrew words in the original text are not exactly equivalent to English usage, and so a word or short phrase may be added in italics, to make the phrase more understandable in English.«
The substitute for Yahwe is LORD in all-capital letters.
