    its due to the humidity... or the lack thereof... during the printing process...

    berrygerry - "Their best song were on their first album."

    Naw, Revelations is where it's at.

    Christian apocalypse-metal all the way, man!

    They were able to save money on ink by dropping the 'S'.

    Psalm 106

    Psalms 107-108

    There is no mistake.

    Hi All,

    So is Psalms spelled with or without an "S"....I found in the older NWT, all the books of Psalms spelled with an "S". I found Chapters, 18, 37, 44, 55, 68, 69, 70, 74, 78, 89, 93, 94, 104. 106, 107, 109, 119, all spelled without the "S". It that correct...

    In English one says Psalm 83:18 and not Psalms 83:18.

    Each psalm is like a song. So you're saying Song #...

    The Book of Psalms is a collection of psalms, a collection of songs.

    But when you want to quote from that book you mention each psalm

    since each psalm is a chapter.

    Because the 'translators' of the New NWT are simply copiers not translators! The Psalm vs Psalms is easy to trace.

    Its comes from the JPS 1985 subscriptions

    Gosh, guys.

    My dad would mock all of you.

    He had a Grade VI education and was anal about grammar - caught every little thing.

    He would read the dictionary (as does my 11-year old ????) - who does that?

    Anyways, 2 points. The book of Psalms does NOT have chapters, so saying Psalms chapter 6 is wrong. It would be the same as saying "Let's stand and sing Song chapter 6."

    Likewise, we are usually referring to one Psalm at a time.

    For several years, the WT articles have spelled Psalm, instead of abbreviating it, to try and help pronunciation.

    The new NWT is done correctly.

    If there is 1 Psalm on a page, it says Psalm at the top.

    If there is more than 1 Psalm on a page, it says Psalms.

    How is this an issue?

    "Psalm" is singular, "Psalms" is plural.

    Not rocket science, guys.
