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 guards and defends us with spiritual arms. The voice of CHRIST to His FATHER in His Passion against the Jews. The voice also of the Church in Fasts and against the rage of devils. All the Psalm is spoken in the Person of CHRIST; and by CHRIST may be referred to all Psalms. Through the Fast.

VEN. BEDE. The whole Psalm is said in the Person of CHRIST, Who seeketh to be freed from the persecution of His enemies: and since Ipsi is prefixed to His Name, none else of His members, but the Mediator Himself is set forth. Through all this Psalm it is the LORD CHRIST that speaks with respect to the dispensation by which He suffered. In the first part, He demandeth retribution against His adversaries; which words, nevertheless, will avail to their conversion. Plead Thou My cause. Next, He rejoiceth concerning His Resurrection; and upbraiding the Jews with their iniquities, expoundeth that which was done in His own Passion. And, my soul, be joyful in the Lord. Thirdly, He promiseth that, throughout the whole orb of the world, praise shall be rendered, by His own members, to the power of the FATHER, Who, by the benefit of His Resurrection hath delivered Him from His enemies; praying that the persecutors may be confounded, and the faithful may exult in great glory. So will I give Thee thanks in the great congregation.

EUSEBIUS. A supplication of the Righteous One, and a prophecy of CHRIST.

ARABIC PSALTER. A prophecy concerning the Incarnation, and concerning those things which the people perpetrated against Jeremiah.

S. JEROME. This Psalm contains the Sacrament of the LORD’S Passover, in which it is to be noted that the things which are spoken with humility, weeping, and lamentation, are not to be referred to the Divinity, but to the Flesh, which it assumed. He prayeth therefore to the LORD the FATHER, and saith.
