Of the different Editions of this Book. FORMER Editions are prefaced with a "Difcourfe on the right way of fitting "the Pfalms of David for Christian Wor"fhip:" wherein a plain account is given of the Author's general conduct in this imitation of the Pfalms, with evident and convincing arguments to fupport it...

Of choofing or finding the Pfalm. The perufal of the whole book will a quaint every reader with the author's m thod; and by confulting the Index at t end, he may find Hymns very proper t many occafions of the Chriftian life and > worship; tho' no copy of David's Pfalter can provide for all, as I have fhewn in the Preface to the large Edition.

Or, if he remembers the first line of an Pfalm, the Table of the First Lines at the beginning of the book, will direct where to find it.

Or, if any fhall think it beft to fing all the Pfalms in order in churches or families,

it may be done with profit; provided thofe Pfalms be omitted that refer to fpecial occurrences of nations, churches, or fingle Christians.

Of dividing the Pfalms.

If the Pfalm be too long for the time or cuftom of finging, there are paafes in many of them, at which you may properly rest; or, you may leave out thofe verfes which, sare included in crotchets [], without diturbing the fenfe: or in fome places you may begin to fing at the pause.

Do not always confine yourselves to fix ftanzas, but fing feven or eight, rather than confound the fenfe, and abuse the Palin in felemin worship.
