The Psalms : the Authorised Version in the Original Rhythm.

By the Rev. W. Macdonald Sinclair. (Hatchards.)—The Psalms are arranged here according to their authorship, real or supposed, the editor following the titles, and so ascribing nearly half to David, a number, we should say, certainly in excess of the truth. It seems to us a pity that while he was rearranging them, he did not attempt something like a chronological order. The headings are explained, and the lines stand as they do in the versification of the original. The volume is very elegantly got up, and should be a success.
