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 for us slept in the sleep of Death and rose again. The voice of CHRIST in His Passion to the FATHER concerning the Jews. Of the guile of heretics.

VEN. BEDE. By David understand CHRIST: by Absalom Judas Iscariot; from whose face CHRIST fled either literally when He departed to Mount Olivet, or spiritually when He hid from him the light of His knowledge and love. It was meet, on account of the correspondence between type and antitype, that both persecutors should die in the same way, namely by hanging. Note that this Psalm was composed after the 50th, and many others which refer to the plots of Saul; but is placed before them for a mystical reason: namely, that this, which speaks of the resurrection on the third day, should come third in order, and that which tells of remission and the fruits of repentance, should be the 50th.1 It pertains altogether to the Person of CHRIST. First, He speaks to the FATHER, rebuking the persecutors who spake blasphemously against Him: Lord, how are they increased, &c. Next, His faithful people are instructed by His example not to fear death, since they also, like their Head, are consoled by the hope of a most certain resurrection.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Written by David concerning good things to come.
