Ah, ok, then it's just another part of the versification issue. There's
nothing particular about Vulgate versification here and it's not
remotely limited to Psalms. The KJV & Vulgate begin to diverge in
versification back in Exodus, to my recollection.
There's not a _good_ solution to the problem right now, but if you just
encode the OSIS correctly, osis2mod will do a fair job of importing the
text. No text is lost, but non-KJV verses appear contiguous with the
preceding KJV verse.
