About the Book

Author Ryan L. Stewart began working on his version of the Psalms in meter in 1996, after the passing of his grandmother Mable (Stewart) Anderson. He was inspired by a book his grandfather carried everywhere: a 1911 printing of the 1650 Scottish Psalter, one of the earliest versions of the Psalms in meter, and took on the task of creating a more modern version.

Written over the course of sixteen years and refined in the spring of 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down the world for many months, The Complete Psalms in Meter presents a modern rendering of the Psalms in metric verse. It also offers bullet-point commentary for each chapter intended to help you better understand the Psalms, providing interesting facts and additional insight into the verses. Stewart’s sincere hope is that others enjoy the work and perhaps learn something new of our loving God in the process.

Uplifting and accessible, this collection offers a modern rendering of the Psalms in metric verse, supplemented by commentary and interesting facts about this important part of the Bible.
