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

VEN. BEDE. The completion of the Tabernacle signifies the perfection of the Church; which, since it wageth wars against carnal vices, hath rightly received the name of a military tent.

The Prophet, foreseeing that the ends of the world would be brought to the faith, first addresses all the nations, commanding them to bring sacrifices to GOD. Next, in a sevenfold series, by various allusions, he enumerates the graces of the HOLY GHOST: The voice of the Lord is upon the waters. But that he may show that the power of the FATHER and of the HOLY GHOST is one, he telleth, thirdly, how the Holy Trinity effectuates Baptism, and how the LORD giveth virtue and benediction to him who is regenerate from it: The Lord maketh the water-flood to be inhabited, &c.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. An enigmatical prophecy, teaching concerning GOD.

ARABIC PSALTER. A prophecy of the Incarnation, and concerning the Ark and Tabernacle.

[This Psalm would appear to have been composed during an equinoctial tornado at the Feast of Tabernacles, which, falling in the month of Tizri (August, September,) must often have been accompanied with hurricanes. Compare Ezra 10:9: “All the people sat in the street of the house of GOD, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.”]
