WAS DAVID A PSALMIST
There is a story that a companion of (Jin-en Victoria discussed with her
Hie subject of heavenly recognition and expressed pleasure at the pros
pect of meeting in the other wold various Bible worthies, including David
in the lit. With a dignity befitting a queen accutoiucd to graining ami
denying audiences, Victoria is said to have remarked: "1 do not cal- lo
meet David." The good queen must have had in miml certain bh n.i-h,-in
his character, which blinded her to his other adorable traits, and she nirelv
must have forgotten the many stirring l'salms ascribed to the sweet singer
of Israel. If we could quite accept the wecping conclu-ion of Dr. Paul
Ilaupt, professor of Semitic languages at Johns Hopkins, given in a leeluiv
before Washington I'liiversity students, we might sympathize with the
queenly snub of the second king of 1-ra.l. Dr. Ilaupt is reported to have
announced, lhat David wrote no lValms at all. his poetic productions ii,g
