A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

ARG. THOMAS. That CHRIST shall receive all the nations as His heritage from the FATHER. Of the gathering together of the wicked in the Passion of the LORD. The voice of CHRIST in His Passion and concerning His Nativity: and against him who blasphemes the Providence of GOD, and in accusation of the wicked. This Psalm is to be read with the Gospel of Luke. The voice of the FATHER and of the Apostles and of CHRIST. At the head should be written: CHRIST saith concerning His Passion and His Power:—

VEN. BEDE. David is by interpretation, Mighty in hand, or Desirable, which can be said of none more fitly, than of the omnipotent CHRIST, Who is verily most Mighty, and exceedingly to be desired by His people. The Prophet here speaks of His Passion, and the LORD Himself is about to speak. In the Hebrew, this Psalm hath no title, but is joined to that which precedes, and makes with it one Psalm: which begins in blessedness and ends also in blessedness. It is divided into four portions. In the first, the Prophet addresses the Jews on the Passion of CHRIST: “Why do the heathen,” &c. Next, concerning the madness of His judges, “Let us break,” &c. In the third, the SAVIOUR speaks of His Almighty kingdom and ineffable generation: as far as human nothingness can comprehend: The Lord said unto Me. Fourthly, the Prophet speaks and warns the people that, acknowledging the Majesty of the LORD, they should embrace the Christian faith: Be wise now, &c.

ARABIC PSALTER. A prophecy of David concerning CHRIST the LORD, and the calling of the nations.
