I'm coming round to your point of view. This is a thorough mangling.
It was probably mangled more by the printers than the writers. Typesetting at this early stage was notoriously inaccurate 👎

Spot checked files PL OK.

Psalm 25: PL OK!

Psalm 26: PL OK!

Psalm 30: PL OK!

Psalm 32: PL OK!

Psalm 34: PL OK!

:clap:

I really like this type of poetry, with the more strict meter and rhyme. Harder to write than some of the more free forms, but so nice to listen to!

On the other hand, this was printed in 1823, not in the 1600s. :hmm:

I need to do a few more of these -- good for the soul. :)
Could I take the great 51st Psalm, and also 148?

Psalm 51:
0:58 - "Just judge, true witness" - I hear "to witness"

Psalm 148:
1:52 - "both you that proud of native gown" - I hear "grown"
1:55 - "and you that have your more renown" - I hear "and you that have more renown" (missing "your")

Psalm 35:
1:14 - "For causles they, both pit and net did set" and also at 1:18 - I bet this is supposed to be "causeless". Except there was a "causelesse" later on. :hmm:
I'll leave this up to you, if you it should be changed. I'm undecided.

Psalm 36: PL OK!

Psalm 38: PL OK! I liked the rhythm and rhyming structure of this one.

Psalm 39:
1:05 - "thou a spans length, mad'st my living line" - should "mad'st" be pronounced like "made" rather than "mad"? "You made my life a span's length"?

2:03 - "Ah! Yet from me let thy plagues be displaced" - I hear "Yet me let thy" (missing "from")

Psalm 40:
Missing "end of Psalm 40". :)

Well, I gave these extra checks, and still missed these . . .
This should take care of those trouble spots noted

Thank you, Tricia.
The change to Ps 35 seems reasonable, so I made it.
