Thread: Scottish Bible?

  1. #1

    Scottish Bible?

    I was reading one of the letters of Samule Rutherford and he was objecting to the kirk using King James' Psalms. I took this to be a reference to the KJV. What translation did the Scottish church use? Is it simply that the Psalter is different? If so is there anywhere I could get a copy of the Scottish Psalter to compare to the KJV?

    I'm not sure what Rutherford's objection was about precisely (it may be dependent on when he wrote that particular letter). I'd like to hear more about that. However, if you are interested in obtaining a copy of the 1650 Scottish Psalter, which is the one authorized by the Westminster Assembly and the Church of Scotland, you can access it online here and you can buy a copy at the Trinitarian Bible Society. This link provides a history of the Scottish Psalter.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
