Publisher's Summary

Book of Psalms, King James Bible by Scourby Bible Media  

"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." (Rev: 1-3)

The books of the Bible were written at different times by different authors over a period of approximately 1,500 years from around 1400BC through 90AD. The Old Testament was written in Biblical Hebrew with the exception of the Books written during "the Chaldean captivity", such as Daniel and Ezra, which were written in "Biblical Aramaic" during the "Chaldean captivity". Many of the Books of the Old Testament bear the names of the Prophets who authored them. Moses compiled the earlier parts of Genesis and directly authored the remaining portion. David wrote much of Psalms while Solomon wrote the books of The Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes. The Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel bear the names of the Prophets who wrote them. The Old Testament Books of the minor prophets bear the author's name as well. The four New Testament Gospels were pinned by Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. The Apostle Paul pinned authorship to 13 of the 27 Books of the New Testament. The authorship of the remaining 10 Books of the New Testament belong to the disciples of Jesus Christ. 

The Hebrew Bible was then translated into Greek and finally into English. John Wycliffe first translated the entire Bible (both Old and New Testaments) into English in 13th century England. William Tyndale translated the Bible into English in 15 century England. The King James translators used the Tyndale and Wycliffe translations in the Publishing of the King James Bible in 1611, commonly referred to as "The Holy Bible". 

Alexander Scourby was the first to record the King James Bible on audio in the early 1950s. Since then millions have been sold the world over. Although many have recorded the Bible over the years, no one could ever match Scourby's unparalleled and majestic reading. The combination of Alexander Scourby reading the King James Bible is an incomparable hearing experience. 

The Chicago Tribune wrote that "Alexander Scourby has the greatest voice ever recorded."

Chicago Tribune: "Next to Scourby, Most Readers Are 'Just Good'" (Sandy Bauers, Knight-Ridder Newspapers, February 22, 1990)

See a short video documentary of the story of the King James Bible, our very first Bible in English. This short 28-minute video is one you will never forget. It's a video that will give you a new appreciation for our English Bible, and the people who died translating and publishing it in 14 and 15th century England.

Helps me sleep

I love to listen to the Psalms at night to help me sleep or if I wake up in the middle of the night and need something to listen to. the narration is very good 80% and it still sounds very good and gives me a little bit more time to process it
