Of the different Editions of this Book. FORMER Editions are prefaced with a “ Discourse on the right way of fitting “ the Psalms of David for Christian Wor“ Thip;" wherein a plain account is given of the Author's general conduct in this imitation of the Plalms, with evident and convincing arguments to support it.
