    Psalm 1

    That man hath perfect blessedness, who walketh not astray in counsel of ungodly men, nor stands in sinners way, nor sitteth in the scorner's chair,

    But placeth his delight upon Gods law, and meditates on his law day and night.

    He shall be like a tree that grows near planted by a river, which in his season yields his fruit, and his leaf fadeth never, and all he doeth shall prosper well.

    The wicked are not so: but like they are unto the chaff which wind drives to and fro.

    In judgement therefore shall not stand such as ungodly are, nor in th' assembly of the just shall wicked men appear.

    For why? the way of godly men unto the Lord is known: Whereas the way of wicked men shall quite be overthrown.

    In 1650 it was in a Scottish Psalter:

    Ed,

    Very good! I actually got it from a later version- 1726, a Scottish King James Version.

    Now my question- why the big difference between this Scottish version and the English version and what does that do to KJVOism?

    Sorta blows the old KJVO argument that there are no differences right out of the water, doesn't it?

    The online KJV edition found at http://www.studylight.org says this:

    The 1611 KJV is the same with some differences in spelling and punctuation:

    The 1726 Scottish edition contained Brown's metrical psalms as well as the KJV translation of the Psalms; Brown's metrical psalter was intended for singing and had been the approved hymnal of the Church of Scotland since 1650. As such, I don't see that its inclusion has any bearing on KJVO arguments.
