Overview

This is a reproduction of an 18th century work. The Psalms of David in Metre is a metrical translation of the Book of Psalms that was approved for public worship by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in the 17th century. In the 18th century, the Rev. John Brown of Haddington added devotional and expository notes to the book. This ebook edition includes:

Brief Historical Background for the Psalms of David in Metre
Explanation of Metrical Psalms and Tips for Singing Them
Textual and other Notes on this Work and its ebook Format
John Brown's Preface, Notes, and Common Table of Psalms
Links to First Lines of each Psalm
Tune Recommendations
Subject Index
Glossary of some Unfamiliar Terms

The text of the Psalms and the Notes was carefully gone over to eliminate errors in transmission and to aid the modern reader where the grammar was outdated.

One of the criticisms of John Brown's original notes was that they were difficult to read because they were separated from the metrical psalm text. This ebook contains many links to not only easily navigate the entire work but also to diminish that difficulty with John Brown's original work. Each reference to the Psalms in John Brown's notes is linked to the corresponding section of the Psalms of David in Metre.
