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 He on Whom we should direct the brightness of the mind in the morning thoughts. The voice of the Church concerning CHRIST, or that of any one withdrawing from darkness, and longing for CHRIST.

VEN. BEDE. Psalm and David often denote CHRIST the LORD, often the Church, because CHRIST is in His members, and the members are contained in their Head. Wherefore words which signify the LORD the SAVIOUR are fitly ascribed to the Church, which is to speak in this Psalm. She therefore dwells in the desert of Idumea; that is, in the dryness of this world, where she thirsts and longs for CHRIST. Whence also Idumea, where David was in exile, is interpreted earthly. In the first part of the Psalm the Church longs after the power of the LORD, desiring to be filled with the fulness of all good things, that she may be found worthy of His praises: O God, Thou art my God: early will I seek Thee. In the second, she gives thanks, because, under the shadow of the LORD’S wings, she has escaped the storms of the world; and she declares that CHRIST the King will rejoice with His Saints in GOD the FATHER, when His enemies are condemned under the earth, Have I not remembered, and so forth.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. A thanksgiving of him who is perfect according to GOD.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of thanksgiving.
