Here’s a small excerpt from just one resource in this bundle, Athanasius: The Life of Antony and the Letter to Marcellinus:
All Scripture of ours, my son—both ancient and new—is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, as it is written. But the Book of Psalms possesses a certain winning exactitude for those who are prayerful. Each sacred book supplies and announces its own promise. The Pentateuch, for instance, relates the beginning of the world and the deeds of the patriarchs, both the exodus of Israel out of Egypt and the decree of the legislation. The Triteuch tells the possession of the land and the exploits of the judges, as well as David’s ancestral line. The books of the Kings and Chronicles recount the stories of the rulers. And Esdras describes the release from the captivity, the return of the people, and the construction of the temple and the city. The books of the Prophets contain foretellings about the sojourn of the Savior, admonitions concerning divine commands and reprimands against transgressors, as well as prophecies for the gentiles. Yet the Book of Psalms is like a garden containing things of all these kinds, and it sets them to music, but also exhibits things of its own that it gives in song along with them.
It sings the events of Genesis in Psalm 18: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims the work of his hands, and in Psalm 23: The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof the world, and all that dwell in it. He has founded it upon the seas. The themes of Exodus and Numbers and Deuteronomy it chants beautifully in Psalms 77 and 113 when it says: At the going forth of Israel from Egypt, of the house of Jacob from a barbarous people, Judea became his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion. It hymns the same events in Psalm 104: He sent forth Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen. He established among them his words, and his wonders in the land of Cham. He sent forth darkness, and made it dark; yet they rebelled against his words. He turned their waters into blood, and he destroyed their fish. Their land produced frogs abundantly, in the chambers of their kings. He spoke, and the dog-fly came, and lice into all their coasts. And it is possible to discover that this whole psalm generally and Psalm 105 were written concerning these same events. And matters pertaining to the priesthood and the tabernacle it proclaims in the “going out from the tabernacle” in Psalm 28: Bring to the Lord, you sons of God, bring to the Lord young rams; bring to the Lord glory and honor.
