Those Better Fruits Which Spiritual Joy Produceth

David Dickson:

“The reason of the Precept is from those better fruits which spiritual joy produceth, such are all sorts of spiritual Songs, especially those which are in the holy Scriptures, with which they should mutually edifie one another, and glorifie God from their heart or spiritual affection. A Psalm is a sacred song in general, especially that which is by playing on the harp. A Hymn properly contains Gods praise. An Ode or Song, is a common name.”(Commentary on Eph. 5)
