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

O most merciful GOD, consolation of our troubles,* Who bedewest the tabernacles of the righteous with joy and gladness, exalt Thy Church with the power of Thy mighty right hand, that it may become the gate of righteousness, and so bind itself together with the steadfast corner-stone as to shine with glory in Thy Resurrection. (5.)

The enemies, encompassing Thy soul, O CHRIST the LORD,* rushed angrily upon Thee,* like bees upon a honeycomb, when in the time of Thy Passion they blazed out against Thee like fire among thorns. And we therefore beseech Thee, have regard to the prayer of Thy Church, and take the bloody sword out of the hand of the cruel enemy, that he may feel himself to be struck down by Thy weapon, when he knoweth the doctrine of Thy faith to be preached by those whom he had held captive. (11.)

O GOD, strength and praise of the faithful, (D. C.) grant us increase of holiness in Thy salvation, exalt us with Thy right hand in good things, that Thou mayest open to us the gates of righteousness, and we entering therein, may with the righteous evermore give thanks unto Thee. (1.)
