Spirit of God, and have reference only to him who is “ the root and the offspring of David, the bright and the morning star,”
In the outset, we have not a word to say to those who have parcelled out the Psalms to a number of different authors, David being considered only one among many; simply asserting, that such views were not in existence in the time of our Lord and his apostles ; for Christ himself speaks of David, as the author or writer, saying, “How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy foot-stool.” Also, St. Paul makes frequent reference to him in his epistles, as for instance, in the Romans, 11th and 9th, “ And David saith Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling-block, and a recompense unto them.” There is a marked unity of character pervading all the Psalms, clearly evincing them to have been penned by one author; but even the admission of several contributors would not invalidate the fact that they all are the production of the Spirit of God, and have reference only to him who is “the root and the offspring of David, the bright and the morning star."
