On Translating the Psalms
By Sampson Guideon, Jr.
One of the earliest specimens of English verse written by an English-born Jew addressed to Daniel Israel Lopez Laguna, who published in 1720 a metrical translation of the Psalms in Spanish under the title Espejo fiet de Vidas.
HOW great thy Thoughts, how Glorious thy Designs,
How every Musick varies in thy Lines;
The Praise of God in every Verse is found,
Art strengthening Nature, Sense improvd by Sound;
