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

ARG. THOMAS. The Voice of the Church praising GOD, and recounting His works. The Voice of the Prophet touching the fabric of the whole reconciled world. The Voice of the HOLY GHOST touching the fabric of the world. The Voice of the Apostles concerning the Jews.

VEN. BEDE. David denotes the person of the speaker, but the whole Song is in honour of CHRIST the LORD, Who is Creator, and Ruler, and Redeemer of the world.

The Prophet, desiring to signify divine mysteries by the order of nature, first sings of the Sacraments of CHRIST and the Church under the type of the formation of heaven and earth: Praise the Lord, O my soul. In the second part, he enumerates the works of the LORD veiled under divers figures: O Lord, how manifold are Thy works. In the third place, he declares that in the everlasting world he will unceasingly utter the praises of the LORD, which he had made his song, even in his short life here: I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live; I will praise my God while I have my being.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of David, when he was going to worship before the Ark of the LORD together with the Priests. As regards us, it teaches us Confession and Prayer. And it gives us information touching the first beginning and order of creation, and tells somewhat of the Angels.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The Doctrine of Confession.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of exhortation and as though of command.
