Act of 1649 – Reference to the Commission for Public Affairs for Reexamining the Paraphrase of the Psalms, and Emitting the Same for Public Use. 6th August 1649.

The General Assembly having taken some view of the new Paraphrase of the Psalms in Meter, with the corrections and animadversions thereupon, sent from several persons and Presbyteries, and finding that they cannot overtake the review and examination of the whole in this Assembly; therefore, now after so much time, and so great pains about the correcting and examining thereof, from time to time, some years bygone, that the work may come now to some conclusion, they do ordain the Brethren appointed for perusing the same during the meeting of this Assembly, viz. Masters James Hamiltoun, John Smith, Hew Mackail, Robert Traill, George Hutcheson, and Robert Lowrie, after the dissolving of this Assembly, to go on in that work carefully, and to report their travels to the Commission of the General Assembly for public affairs, at their meeting at Edinburgh in November. And the said Commission, after perusal and reexamination thereof, is hereby authorized, with full power, to conclude and establish the Paraphrase, and to publish and emit the same for public use.
