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 Helper, in Whom the assembly of the Church ought to hope. The Voice of the Church, or of any one turned from evil to good. The Voice of CHRIST touching the Passion. The Prophet, concerning the Passion of CHRIST, or concerning the Jews.

VEN. BEDE. Idithun is interpreted Leaping over (them), that is, the lovers of the world: for here is brought in the person of a soldier of CHRIST, who hath abandoned the desires of the world, and abideth with firmest hope in the LORD. That leaper over sins, of whom we have been speaking, seeing the world very full of errors and sorrows, in the first part of the Psalm acknowledges that his soul is subject to GOD, because he hath obtained the gift of salvation through the Only-Begotten SON of GOD, blaming those who wish to be called Christians in name only. Shall not my soul be subject to God? In the second part he again says that his soul is subject to GOD the FATHER, because through His Word he hath gained wholesome patience; strengthening the people with his faithful confession, that it should ever hope in the LORD with all the affection of the heart: My soul, wait thou still upon God. In the third division he warns the erring people, that they should rather trust in the LORD than in the fading happiness of this world. As for the children of men, they are but vanity; the children of men are deceitful upon the weights, &c.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Named from Jeduthun the singer. The literal sense is said to be when the servants of Abner and the servants of David played, and slew one another, and one of those who belonged to Abner slew Joab’s brother, the youngest son of Zeruiah. And this Joab kept for long, and slew Abner, a giant of the time of Saul. The spiritual sense offers a remedy for sin, if we use penance and confession.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The doctrine of duties, (or, touching observances and duties towards GOD.)

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of glorying in GOD.
