Psalms:
“The Psalter is the book in which the Word of God becomes man’s prayer. In other books of the Old Testament, ‘the words proclaim [God’s] works and bring to light the mystery they contain’ (Dei Verbum, 2). The words of the Psalmist, sung for God, both express and acclaim the Lord’s saving works; the same Spirit inspires both God’s work and man’s response. Christ will unite the two. In him, the Psalms continue to teach us how to pray.”
James Gavigan, Brian McCarthy, and Thomas McGovern, eds., Psalms and the Song of Solomon, The Navarre Bible (Dublin; New York: Four Courts Press; Scepter Publishers, 2003), 28.

St Ambrose comments: “History gives instruction and the law teaches, prophecies announce, reprimands correct, and moral teaching counsels; the book of Psalms is a compendium of all these and offers the balm of a spiritual medicine to all.”
