Why does the scriptures defer so much?

The Afrikaans OV
Psa 84:10  o God, ons skild, kyk en aanskou die aangesig van u gesalfde.

KJV - 1611
Psa 84:10  For a day in thy courts, is better then a thousand: I had rather be a doore keeper in the house of my God, then to dwell in the tents of wickednesse.

Psa 84:1  Vir die musiekleier; op die Gittiet. Van die kinders van Korag. ‘n Psalm.

Psa 84:1  [To the chiefe musician vpon Gittith, a Psalme for the sonnes of Korah.] How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hostes!

How can a belief that this Scriptual Translations are the real thing? It does not look that way?

What i did not mentioned is that these verses is from the E-Sword app i downloaded.

The Original Text lacks verse numbering: the verse numbering is first added by the Masorities.
This is the "Hebrew verse numbering".
The Afrikaans Ou Vertaling follow here the "Hebrew verse numbering"

Two problems:
1) The Hebrew verse numbering counts the title as verse one
while the KJV standard counts the title and the "second" Hebrew verse as verse one.

2) Some translations do not include the title as Biblical text. (but that did you not notice).

Between ( ) is the title.

Psa 84:1  (To the chief Musician upon Gittith, Psalm for the sons of Korah).

    How amiable are Thy Tabernacles,
    LORD of Sabaoth!
Psa 84:9  Behold, GOD our Shield, and look upon the face of Thy anointed.
Psa 84:10  For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand.
    I had rather be a door-keeper in the House of my God,
    than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

So I follow here the KJV standard of verse numbering while the title is separated.
Not because I like it but because the most translations follow for a part this standard.
And because e-Sword and other Bible programs using this standard in compare mode.
