The Complete Psalms
- The Book of Prayer Songs in a New Translation
- By: Pamela Greenberg, Susannah Heschel (foreword)
- Narrated by: Kymberly Dakin
- Length: 6 hrs and 36 mins
Traditional translations - from those of the medieval Jewish commentator Rashi to early Christian commentators to the King James version—have downplayed anger at God and reinterpreted the Psalms in ways that would be doctrinally more palatable, but which flatten the richness and subtlety of the Hebrew verse. Greenberg's translation aims to restore the poetry and vibrancy of the Psalms as a prayerful act, replicating their emotional passion while both wrestling with the text as living liturgy and remaining as true as possible to the originals.
