some words

"A remarkable  achievement. I am  sure this translation, the best one I know of at this moment,  will find its way into  personal prayer and  collective praise."

-- Harvey Cox

"How could anyone improve on the translations I already know? At the first page I was gripped by the actual voice of these  poems and wept as if seeing a lost friend approach from a great distance--not lost, but alive and breathing, walking closer and closer, stepping into right now."

-- Marie Howe

"Pamela Greenberg's delicious new translation of the psalms... hs lifted the old language from spider webs and mothballs,  breathing new air  into the songs."

-- Mary Karr
