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, distinguishing His human members, teaches and instructs man in knowledge. The Voice of the Church to the LORD. The Voice of the Apostles and of the whole Church to GOD concerning the Jews and all persecutors. The Voice of the Church to CHRIST concerning persecutions.

VEN. BEDE. The fourth of the Sabbath is the fourth day of the week counting from the Sabbath, that day on which the LORD created the lights of heaven. This is to be applied to holy men shining with heavenly conversation on earth, concerning whom the Psalm is about to speak.

The Prophet, observing the hearts of the unwise to be disturbed, as though GOD paid no attention to mortal affairs, when they saw the ungodly in prosperity and the righteous afflicted; asks in the first part the LORD to requite the proud, through whom he knew that the world had been perverted to such a notion. O LORD GOD, to Whom vengeance belongeth. In the second part, he rebukes those who in their foolish blasphemy think that GOD does not behold human things, whereas it is He who gives sense and understanding to His creatures; and he counts him blessed who treads under foot worldly happiness and perseveres in reverence for GOD. Take heed, ye unwise. In the third part, in order to attract their minds, he declares that the LORD hath been his own refuge, and will be the punisher of sinners. Who will rise up with me against the wicked?

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of David, concerning the congregation of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. Spiritually, it is of the persecutions against the Church.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. Concerning the persecutions against the Church.
