Chapter 19: The Discipline of Psalmody

13 November 2017 | The Rule of St Benedict


RB 19:3-7 -  3We must always remember, therefore, what the Prophet says: Serve the Lord with fear (Ps 2:11), 4and again, Sing praise wisely (Ps 46[47]:8); 5and, In the presence of the angels I will sing to you (Ps 137[138]:1). 6Let us consider, then, how we ought to behave in the presence of God and his angels, 7and let us sing the psalms in such a way that our minds are in harmony with our voices.
