Miles Coverdale’s translation of the Psalms was adopted by Thomas Cranmer for use in the first Book of Common Prayer (1549), so you may well have read this man’s work and recited it many times. In the United States it was used until 1979, and it’s still the official psalter of the Church of England. (artist unknown)
