And then will every member of it be joyfully proclaiming and saying--for itself in particular--"Come, hearken, and I will tell you what God hath done for my soul"--verse 16. And thus, by taking the hint from this word, araoroo,ta;, we shall discern, I conceive, the true design and meaning of the Psalm.
