RSV Psalms verse numbering

I've noticed that the verse numbering of quite a few of the Psalms is 'off' in the RSV.

SUMMARY: For every Psalm that has a 'title,' the RSV codes that title as the first verse, moves the first verse to second, etc.

Further Explanation:
For example, Ps. 90.1&2 in the KJV (and others) is: "1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God.
Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. "

The same passage in the RSV is: "1 A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. 2 LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. "

Thus, every incidence of this makes it appear that the chapter in question has an alternate (additional) verse in the RSV.

Thanks for your work on the programs. God bless.

Re: RSV Psalms verse numbering

I have noticed this issue as well. As the RSV is a very popular version it would be nice to see this fixed....
