    The Psalter
     
    When saying a psalm aloud, the word 'blessed' is to be pronounced as two syllables: 'bless - ed'. Where spelled 'blest', the word is pronounced as one syllable.
     
    A red dot marks the mid-point in each psalm verse where, traditionally, a pause is observed
     
    Each psalm or group of psalms may end with:
     
    Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen
