The Most Beautiful Thing Under Heaven

David Dickson, A Brief Explication of the Psalms, Vol. 1, p. 292:

The true visible church, where God's ordinances are set up as he hath appointed, where his word is purely preached, is the most beautiful thing under heaven, and there is God's glory set forth and manifested more clearly than in all the Lord's handiwork beside in heaven or earth; therefore is the place of the Lord's temple here so highly commended, and Zion called the perfection of beauty, because of the glory of God sundry ways revealed there: out of Zion God hath shined, saith he, in regard to the clear manifestation of his will, specially in the matter now in hand about the way of judgment.

(HT: Holdfast)
