It should be taken as a rule in explaining the psalms, that they exhibit the covenant of grace dispensed by the Lord Jesus Christ, the King and Head of the church. He is the subject-matter of the whole of divine revelation; but in a special manner of the psalms. ...

Can it be a theme less important than the salvation which he has secured to his people, in which he takes so deep an interest? The numerous quotations from the Psalms and references to them in the New Testament, clearly shows that the Psalms were designed and suited to celebrate the kingdom and glory of the Mediator. Of the former there are about seventy, and of the latter, thirty. In all these the application is more or less directly to Christ. And these are not exhaustive. They are merely specimens of what the Psalms are throughout. Christ is in the Psalms, or rather the Psalms are full of Christ, and it is the business of the expounder to bring forth these good things out of this abundant storehouse. ...

What is he referring to when he says of the former there are about 70... and 30 in the latter?

Thanks for highlighting this problem. Just before that, he says "Can it be a theme less important than the salvation which he has secured to his people, in which he takes so deep an interest?" I think that is what he is referring to as the former. The reference is ambiguous, however, though my editorial decision to introduce a paragraph division at that point may not have been the best one. I have altered it in the blog entry.
