Meaning of Psalms

Psalms is the name given to
the Hebrew Book of "Tehilitn"
or "Tehiloth" (praises) which
tradition ascribes to the author-
ship of King David. The title
"Psalms" is derived from the
Greek version of the Book which
bore the heading "Psalmoi" or
"Psalterion." In classical Greek
"Psalmos" is the expression
used to signify the twanging of
strings, or the musical sound
produced by plucking the
strings of a stringed instru-
ment such as a harp, etc. It
thus came to represent the
poems of David indicating that
they were chanted or sung to
the music of stringed instru-
ments.

JERUSALEM — Finance Min-
ister Pinhas Sapir told the Knes-
set Tuesday that the government
would require during the current
year greater sums than 'provided
in the 1963-64 budget "for secur-
ity expenditure."
Sapir spoke about the esti-
mated increase in defense costs
in reply to a question by Idov
Cohen, Liberal Deputy, as to
whether an additional allocation
of 70,000,000 pounds ($23,300,-
000) for housing immigrants
would be followed by other un-
foreseen needs.
As to how the government
would finance the increased
expenditure, Sapir said it would
come from "additional sources."
He did not indicate whether a
supplementary budget would be
required.
