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 Light of believers. The Prophet counsels believers. The Apostolic voice. The HOLY GHOST by the Prophet counsels believers. The voice of the Apostles. The Prophet, concerning the Advent of CHRIST and His Resurrection.

VEN. BEDE. Hymn and Song denote praise, and that it may be shown that these are given to CHRIST the LORD alone, To the end is prefixed. After the “Song of Resurrection,” the Prophet supplicates that we may be blessed, and be led to the knowledge of GOD, to which our own merits cannot attain. For, in the first part, speaking to the faithful, he prays that he may with them attain to be blessed by the LORD, so that, enlightened in heart, they may know that CHRIST the LORD is to be preached among all nations. God be merciful unto us. Then, turning to the LORD, he says in the spirit of prophecy that He is to have thanks given Him by the peoples, because He judges the nations in equity. Let the people praise Thee, O God, &c. Thirdly, he repeats the same verse which He had uttered above; adding this in a mystery, that the earth had already brought forth her fruit: and therefore, iterating the phrase, he again asks that we may be blessed. Let the people praise Thee, O God, … increase, &c.

SYRIAC PSALTER. It is uncertain who composed it. The people which brought David over the River Jordan sang it. To us it signifies the prophecy touching the call of the Gentiles, the preaching of the Apostles, and the judgment of the LORD.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The calling of the Gentiles, and the preaching of the Apostles.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm declaring things to come.
