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 planted the Church by His Resurrection in eternal glory. The Prophet speaketh to the FATHER, and to the SON, and concerning the praise of the same. Concerning the Pasch of CHRIST, and the prayers of the future Church, and with praise in man. The voice of CHRIST to the FATHER. The Church prays and praises.

VEN. BEDE. A Psalm and Song is this: when it thus commences the hymn, and the art of the organ follows up that which the human voice has begun: and wherever it occurs, it teaches that by the knowledge of Divine cognition, good works are to be taken in hand. For the acquired knowledge of GOD must precede the efficiency of holy deeds. By the House of David we understand the Temple of the LORD’s Body: by the dedication of that house, His Resurrection, by which it was raised to eternal power and glory. At the beginning of the Psalm, the LORD, after the glory of His Resurrection, returns thanks to the FATHER because He had delivered Him from the adversity of the world, commanding also His saints to sing praises to GOD, since all things are put in His power: I will magnify Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast set me up. Secondly, He affirms that He shall never be moved, and tells us that thanks must be paid to the LORD by the living, and not by the dead. Thirdly, He returns to His Resurrection, and exults in the deposition of the frail flesh, and the eternity of His majesty and glory: Thou hast put off My sackcloth, and girded Me with gladness.

SYRIAC PSALTER. A prophecy and returning of thanks.
