BISHOP LIGHTFOOT

ON COLOSSIANS iii. 16.

“THE leading idea of Yaduós (Psalm) is a musical accompaniment, that of õuvos (hymn) praise to God : qdý is the general word for a song, whether accompanied or not, whether of praise or on any other subject . . . In the text the reference in faluôs is especially, though not exclusively, to the Psalms of David, which would early form part of the religious worship of the Christians; įuvois would more appropriately designate hymns of praise composed by the Christians themselves on distinctly Christian themes. The third word gathers up the other two, and extends the precept to all forms of song, with the limitation, however, that they must be spiritual."
