    I find in week 4, day 23, that what you have as Psalm 22 is what I’ve always been taught is the 23rd Psalm. Can you explain?

      Hi Robert – I found that the Douay-Rheims Bible numbers Psalms differently than other translations. Numbering is the same through Psalm 9, but then Douay-Rheims splits Psalm 10 at verse 18 and continues it as Psalm 11. I think there is another split later in Psalms as well, if I remember correctly. They are all there, just numbered differently!

    Thank you, Lori, that’s sure worth knowing, but makes it confusing!

      It was very confusing for me putting together the links! I also found a few other differences with this translation; there are some verses in Tobit not found in the NAB, for instance. I’m sorry I don’t remember more of the details now, but I hope you enjoy reading this translation!

    I wish I did enjoy this translation more. It is the old way of talking, but I find it confusing in itself since there are no quotation marks, and I’m often wondering who is saying what, or if it’s actually a quote or a narration. I’ve never been fond go thee and thou passages. But, I’ve never read the Bible before, and am enjoying getting into the roots of what I’ve been hearing all my life at Mass. I just started, and have a long ways to go. I’ll pull up my big boy pants and see if I can soldier through. Thank you for doing this!!

      I completely agree with you! I thought it got easier to read as I went along – you kind of get the hang of how it flows. Still, I’d love to create a site with an easier translation, but either they are copyrighted so I can’t copy & paste them into my site, or their own online version isn’t indexed so I can’t set up readings as I have here. The thing I did like about this version is that the readings we’ve heard all our lives in mass, sound a little different and I would hear them in a new way sometimes. Hopefully that will be your experience too!
