Excerpt from Observations Upon the Metrical Version of the Psalms, Made by Sternhold, Hopkins, and Others: With a View to Illustrate the Authority With Which This Collection Was at First Admitted, and How That Authority Has Been Since Regarded, in the Public Service of the Established Church of England But deviations of this kind have been assumed without such views. Sometimes, upon the mistaken notion, that the Old Version made by Sternhold, Hopkins, and others, was never countenanced by any public authority, any formal or legitimate direction as to the usage of it. Sometimes, upon the pretence of strains, more poetical than those in the Old Version, being required in aid of devo tion.
