General Information

Description: The Old Version is a short name for a metrical psalter in common use in English-speaking countries from the middle of the sixteenth century to the early eighteenth century, when it was replaced by the psalter of Nahum Tate and Nicholas Brady (the New Version) and the psalm paraphrases and hymns of Isaac Watts and others.

The Old Version had a number of authors, notably Thomas Sternhold, whose paraphrases of nineteen Psalms was published in 1547. After his death, John Hopkins added eighteen psalms to an edition published in 1549. With additions of contributions by other authors, complete editions were published in 1562, 1563, 1574, 1578, 1598, 1604, and many afterwards.
