Sermon Point: Sing the Psalms; they are the Gospel songs of the Bible.

Dr. Prutow responds to (1) the statement: "Exclusive psalmody is not only not necessary but positively sinful" and (2) the suggestion that we examine the songs of Revelation for guidance regarding the content of our congregational singing.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Thank you Dr. Prutow for defending Psalm singing from the Book of Revelation. Seeking to promote Psalm singing, critics have often used Revelation 15 to counter me. Your demonstrating that Revelation is patterned after the Psalms, quotes the Psalms and has the same message of the Psalms is very instructive. I will be using your sermon to help persuade others to look again an the need and benefit of Psalm singing. Thanks for your insights and exegetical defense of our singing the Psalter.

“ Response to Jago from Australia ”
Here are four thoughts for consideration. First of all: [1] Following the pattern of Hebrew poetry, [2] carrying the theme of Christ's kingship, and [3]quoting the psalter, this song of Revelation, by its example, points us back to the psalter. Second: Modern hymns are not composed using the patterns of parallel thought used in Hebrew poetry. Such patterns are foreign to modern hymnody. Third: The technical procedure used to transpose the patterns of thought used in Hebrew poetry into western style is known as prosody. It is similar to the translation process and is used to convey the thought and intent of the original. Fourth: The parallel paterns of thought used in Hebrew poetry are easily transfered into different languages. This is part of the beauty of Hebrew poetery not found in other forms of poetery.

“ Great Sermon! ”
But the point is, it is not a psalm. It is a song written after the pattern of the psalms and has some of the ideas from the psalms, but it is not one of the psalms. Many of our hymns and gospel songs follow these same criteria. Very few people seem to sing the actual psalms as written. They rearrange them to fit our notions of musical metre. They even alter the words to fit. [See the response by Dr. Prutow]
