Learn all about the Psalms in this thorough work by F. B. Meyer.
In PC Study Bible, this work can be opened both as a Book and as a Commentary.
To see a masterpiece of painting on the walls of an art gallery while a throng of conventional sightseers is pressing past is a very different matter to seeing it quietly on the walls of some stately mansion, when there is time to sit down and drink in the artist's thought, or catch the different lights of early morning, of noon, or of the fading day.
Perhaps the enjoyment is the more complete when some devoted lover of the work stands beside, telling the story of its daily effect upon his mind, and indicating subtle beauties which had escaped the first superficial gaze.
It is with some such intention that this book is sent forth, that, in the quiet of the sick-chamber or of the prayer-closet, attention may be again concentrated on this inimitable psalm; that the familiar words may be considered in the light of growing Christian experience; and that perchance some unnoticed beauty may be suggested by one who seldom comes to it without discerning some fresh reason to thank the Spirit of Inspiration that He ever led the sweet minstrel of Scripture to indite the Shepherd Psalm.
