The Book of Psalms : Versified and Annotated (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Book of Psalms: Versified and Annotated Of these two important words, the latter is the name prefixed to a psalm by its inspired author; the former is the verb from which the latter, the noun, is derived. The true and solid foundation on which the Opinion assailed rests, the bold assailant keeps out of the view of his readers; for on this subject he does not bring forward a single passage from the New Testament. Under Contents of the Psalms, he does refer to Luke 24: 48. The use which our Lord makes of the Psalms after the resurrection, rests on the supposition, that they were composed under divine direction, page 7th.' What is this but impious presumption, thus to impeach the assured knowledge of Him who is the truth. It is necessary, as an urgent duty, from the confess edly insidious and really reckless assault on the divinely authorized name of this sacred book, and in defence of very important truth relative to the worship of God and may be profitable to readers, who seek such profit, to ex pose the positive introductory statement in the Appendix, inﬂated, as it is, into the outward form of an inference without any premises, covered with a loose dress of words, through which its meaning may be seen, though, in the last clause, its application or purpose is pushed away into an intended obscurity, perhaps from timidity, or merely to bring into suspicion, as the shrewd critic, in his by-way in sight of its end, dropped a few words with that hint in them.
