Psalms numbering in Douay-Rheims

I've had a couple questions come in recently about how the Psalms are numbered in the Douay-Rheims Bible. In some places it can appear they're off by one or two. There is a good explanation on Wikipedia.

Basically, the Douay uses the numbering from the Septuagint, which is the Bible that Jesus and the Apostles used. So, no need to feel bad because you're different! :)
