In the classic Book of Common Prayer (Coverdale) psalter, there are these verses 5–7 of Psalm 14 (13 in the LXX/Vulgate numbering):
- Their throat is an open sepulchre, with their tongues have they deceived: the poison of asps is under their lips.
- Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: their feet are swift to shed blood.
- Destruction and unhappiness is in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes.
Similar verses are in the Vulgate and the Douay-Rheims Bible. But these verses are missing from the King James Version and other recent Bibles that I’ve looked at. What happened to them?
