Latin Vulgate, Psalmi 129 (Psalms 129)
The Latin Vulgate was translated by Jerome (c. 347-420), who began his work in 382. In 386 he moved to Bethlehem and worked on the Old Testament. He began using the Greek LXX, but quickly decided to work directly from the Hebrew. In 405 the Old Testament, as well as the rest of the New Testament was completed. Due to older Latin texts in circulation, Jerome's work was not widely popular until the ninth century. The influence of Jerome's Bible was quite extensive, and versions such as the Douay-Rheims were direct translations from the Vulgate.
