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, when the temple of His Body was destroyed, should raise it again after three days. He hath sent a song to His elect. The song of the elect. Concerning the doctrine of Confession. The voice of the Church repenting with her whole soul. The voice of the Church against her enemies. By fasting. A song for the catechumens and elect.

VEN. BEDE. Through the whole Psalm the Church prays that she may not, before the Presence of the LORD, appear contemptible to her enemies. In the first part she makes supplication that she may be taught the commandments of the LORD, and His ways: Unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. Secondly, she asks for the favours which He hath bestowed on the Holy Fathers from the beginning: Call to remembrance, O Lord, Thy tender mercies, &c. Thirdly, she showeth how they that keep the commandments of the LORD merit eternal rewards, and protesteth that she will constantly remain in the will of the same LORD. The first portion, therefore, consists of five letters; the second of six; the third of nine.

S. JEROME. The 25th Psalm contains the prayer of the Mediator offered to the FATHER: it may also be the clamour of the Church making her requests to GOD.
