Introduction written by José de Vinck, Allendale, August 1993. He characterizes his translation briefly, as follows:
»I have offered a literal translation, giving the reader the freedom of choice. I spite of all the scolarly research, there will always remain in the Psalms a certain mystery, and it should be respected. The quaint titles have been omitted, because they are generally imcomprehensible. Also, the numbering of the paragraphs has been dropped, for it seems distracting in a book intended for devotional reading.«
