      In the Fischer/Weber et al. volume (Biblia Sacra iuxta vulgatam versionem) they are printed on facing pages, the LXX on the left, and the Hebrew on the right.

      Jerome made two translations of the Psalms - one from the Septuagint,
      and one from the Hebrew. I'm not sure which one is usually published. I
      presume the Hebrew, but I seem to remember that the Septuagint version
      also became very popular.
