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

1. At the preliminary anointing, the Priest says, “I anoint thee, N., with the oil of gladness, (Ps. 45:7,) as a bulwark against all the works of the wicked enemy, that thou mayest be grafted into the root of the rich olive-tree, which is the Holy and Apostolic Church of GOD. Amen.”

2. In a prayer which follows almost immediately, Ps. 91:5, 6, is imbedded.

3. Ps. 32 is sung just before the Gospel.

4. In the blessing of the font there is a cento of Scripture texts, of which one is, “The waters saw Thee, O GOD, the waters saw Thee, and were afraid: the depths also were troubled.” Ps. 77:16.

5. After chrism has been poured into the water, the Priest recites the following verses, intercalating Alleluias, Ps. 29:3, 4; 34:6; 66:12; 51:7–10; 132:13, and just afterwards, the whole of Ps. 150, for which another Coptic rite substitutes Ps. 121.

6. A procession of the newly baptized follows, begun by intoning “O praise the LORD with me, and let us magnify His Name together.” Ps. 34:3.
