The title of this first collection of devotionals was taken from Psalm 81:16. Seventy-five of these devotionals first appeared as weekly secondary articles in De Heraut, no. 1, December 7, 1877–no. 75, May 18, 1879. The other twenty-five were taken from De Heraut, no. 123, April 18, 1880–no. 124, April 25, 1880 and no. 127, May 16, 1880–no. 149, October 17, 1880. The second collection appeared under the same title (see 1883.08).

Of the approximately 2,200 devotionals in the Sunday edition of De Standaard, in the Zondagsblad van De Standaard, and subsequently in De Heraut, 616 were reprinted in eight different collections (ten volumes) between 1880 and 1908 (see 1880.12, 1889.15, 1891.16, 1893.08, 1899.32, 1901.04, 1902.17, and 1908.21). Devotionals were also reprinted in collections of biblical-theological articles. For additional information about Kuyper and his devotionals, see 1877.05.
