1650 Psalter“Now though spiritual songs of mere human composure may have their use, yet our devotion is best secured, where the matter and words are of immediately divine inspiration; and to us David’s Psalms seem plainly intended by those terms of “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,” which the apostle useth (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16).” from the Preface to the Scottish Metrical Psalter

Saw this on Facebook…Virginia is for Hugenots posted A Puritan Preface to the Scottish Metrical Psalter back in 2009. Very helpful!
