"Joy and health"

ONE afternoon, the writer found a copy of the book of Psalms, the version being largely that of Miles Coverdale. Several psalms were read and pondered; and the fifteenth verse of the one hundred and eighteenth psalm especially arrested attention: "The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass."

Students of Christian Science gratefully acknowledge the light thrown by its teachings upon the Scriptures; and the train of thought opened up as to the meaning of this verse, and the lesson to be gained from it, proved to be of great interest. "Joy and health"! Do not the very words convey a sense of gladness and well-being? Who is there that, endowed with an abundance of material wealth, yet lacking these precious gifts, would not willingly part with gold and treasure, if thereby joy and health might be obtained?
