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 is the Fountain of Light, and Eternal Life. The prophet, together with the praise of GOD, speaks of the works of Judah, and it is an accusation of his concerning the Jewish people.—Of lamentations.

VEN. BEDE. (In the Title.) Take, then, The servant of the Lord, in no other sense than of Him, Who, being in the form of GOD, took upon Him the form of a Servant, and became obedient even unto death. The whole Psalm is said in the person of the Prophet. In its beginning he vehemently accuseth the despisers of the Law, and saith that they have no portion with GOD, commemorating also their wicked designs. Next, still praising GOD, he describeth the gifts that are bestowed as the reward of His servants, and saith that they are filled with the plenteousness of the House of the LORD; and this Psalm is briefly concluded with the destruction of the wicked.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of David, when Saul was pursuing him. But to us a rebuke of our enemies, and a discourse concerning the Godhead.

S. JEROME. This Psalm points out the person of the ungodly, rebukes his pride, shows the Fountain of Eternal Light.
