Zusammenfassung: 
Taking into account the introduction to this issue, the article examines the Lutheran psalm poetry of the Leipzig theologian Cornelius Becker. He first published his Der Psalter Dauids Gesangweis in 1602, after which it was reprinted repeatedly and received extensively throughout the 17th century. In the prefaces of Der Psalter Dauids Gesangweis and in the lyrics of the songs themselves there are numerous indications that Becker's psalm poetry not only aimed at strengthening piety, but also attempted to create sociability.
