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 loves the gates of His Church, set upon the holy hills, more than all the tabernacles of Jacob. The Voice of the Apostles touching the Church. The Voice of the Prophet, in the HOLY GHOST, to the Apostles, or their Voice touching the Church. The Voice of the Prophet touching the Heavenly Jerusalem, that is, the Church of CHRIST. The Voice of CHRIST the Holy One to the Apostles touching the Church, and the merits of the Saints.

VEN. BEDE. The sons of Korah signify Christians; to whom the Prophet proclaims the City of GOD; to increase their yearning for such glory. Otherwise: Nearly all the Psalms which are inscribed For the sons of Korah, are full of rejoicing, for they do not imitate the sins of their fathers, and take to themselves the fire of lust, strange to the LORD, but loving that which the LORD desireth, speak glorious things concerning the City of GOD.

In the first part, the Prophet speaketh to the faithful, proclaiming the Heavenly City. Her foundations are upon the holy hills. In the second part, the LORD the SAVIOUR declares her future belief by referring to various names, and reproacheth the Synagogue because she knew not GOD, in Whom the devout faith of the Gentiles believed. I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know Me, Behold the Philistines, &c. The third part in one verse toucheth on the blessedness of the world to come, and these parts are divided from each other by the interposition of pauses. As the dwelling of all rejoicing is in thee.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The Incarnation of CHRIST, and the exalting of the Gentiles.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of narration.
