Inhaltsangabe: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907 Excerpt: ...is this sort of thing that saps the Church of moral power and stalwart righteousness. We find none of this insipid, spineless sort of ethics in the Psalms. Evil is given its proper names. There is no evasion or ambiguity; no minimizing of, trimming to, or compromising with, unrighteousness. Wrong is wrong, and right is right. Evildoers are warned in plain words. Sin is not sugar-coated. There is love of righteousness for righteousness' sake (cxix. 97). There is the breathing of the deepest contrition for small, as well as great, transgression, and a genuine hatred for all evil-doing (cxxxix. 21, 22). In keeping with this plain, positive, and healthful sentiment against evil are the so-called "Imprecatory" Psalms. They do not, we are persuaded, militate against the highest ethical ideals.

These Psalms have their place as expressing the awful condition and deserved rewards of the incorrigible enemies of Christ and His Kingdom. They are not inconsistent with the law of love. 6. The ethical value of the Psalms appears in a study of their fruits. It is seen in the high moral character developed in those who have most fully imbibed their spirit.

Their influence may be seen in many who have led the forces of right against wrong. We need only to refer to the early disciples and other Christians who fed their faith and indomitable courage, in prison and dungeon and fire, with these songs of the Spirit, and whose moral...
