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 is the beginning in the head of the Old Testament. The patience of the people. The voice of the Church after the Resurrection of the LORD. Concerning the patience of Paul the Apostle, when he is the first to preach CHRIST. Read it with the Acts of the Apostles.

VENERABLE BEDE. We have often seen how by the title CHRIST is signified, by whose members the Psalm is begun, as it is finished by the head. In the beginning, the Church of the Gentiles returns thanks because, set free from the listless grief of the world, she has attained to the joys of the New Testament. Next the LORD speaks of His holy Incarnation and righteousness; He supplicates the help of the FATHER, that He may overcome the perils brought upon Him by the Jews: beseeching that all His enemies may be confounded, and that they all who hope in Him may rejoice.

SYRIAC PSALTER. In the literal sense it pertains to David when Shimei brought to him the names of those who ministered in the house of the LORD. But in the spiritual sense a thanksgiving to GOD by His worshippers in the Church.

S. JEROME. This Psalm hath in the beginning the voice of the Gentile people called to be a portion of GOD’S heritage, and then of the Mediator Himself to the FATHER.
