Overview

Excerpt from Early Religious Poetry of the Hebrews

The title Early Religious Poetry of the Hebrews needs a further definition. It is intended to embrace the Poetry of Old Testament times as distinguished from the Poetry of the Synagogue. This will fix our period. But what are we to under stand by Religious Poetry?

The Poet is the man whose whole being is in touch with those voices of God that we call Nature. He may, or he may not, be a religious man. In other words, he may, or he may not, recognise the Source of those voices. The Prophet, on the other hand, is the man whose whole being is in touch with the voices of God in Humanity. He must be, more or less, a poet, in the sense in which we have defined the word, but his chief sphere will be the poetry of life. His message will necessarily be conditioned by the age in which he lives. He has his treasure in an earthen vessel and he prophesies in part.
