Then perhaps they erred in thinking it was precise, or we would not have all the controversy we have had over the past 300+ years? That there is controversy by honest men of greater intellect than I is without doubt. If they did not intend imprecision, then they erroneously thought it was sufficiently precise.Or c) they believed that the term "psalms" was clear enough. If they intended to be imprecise (ambiguous) wouldn't they have said "songs"?
I'd have preferred precision in either direction, which would have been easily achieved, but alas, they did not ask my advice.
