Psalms in Sunday Missal uses Greek Numbering System

Once again, I am thinking of this Psalm Numbering System.

The Sunday Missal in Singapore has been using the Greek Numbering System for Psalms for as long as I can remember (from about 1983 to current date 2013 Jan). 

And to this date (2013 Jan) this still holds true except when it is an American Song Book (e.g. Breaking Bread Hymnal) which follows the Hebrew Numbering System for Psalms.

Since I am very much involved in the Responsorial Psalms, I am leaning towards the Greek Numbering System, shown on the right of the Table below. For details you can read an old blog entry I wrote HERE.

*Note that in Singapore Sunday Missals,
the Greek Numbering System is used.
