The Book of Psalms

“The Scripture is a spiritual paradise, and the book of Psalms is placed as the tree of life, in the midst of this paradise. The Psalms are not only for delight—but usefulness. They are like the pomegranate tree which is not only good for fragrance—but fruit. The Psalms are like those trees of the sanctuary, Ezek. 47:12, good both for food and medicine. The Psalms are enriched with variety, and suited to every Christian’s estate and condition. They are a spiritual treasury and storehouse. If a Christian finds his heart cold—here he may fetch fire! If he is weak in grace—here he may fetch armor! If he is ready to faint—here are cordials to refresh him! There is no condition you can name, but there is a Psalm suited to that condition.”

— Thomas Watson
