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, the Good Shepherd, predestines His sheep unto eternal rest. The Voice of the Church to the LORD touching the Jews. The Voice of CHRIST to the Apostles, or of the Church to the LORD touching the Jews. The Voice of the Church to CHRIST, and of the Prophet concerning the unbelief of the Jews. The Voice of the Church advising repentance.

VEN. BEDE. Praise denotes devotion of voice, song cheerfulness of mind, for David, CHRIST our SAVIOUR, to the end that we may come together and rejoice, not in vain delights, but in the LORD. The Prophet, foreseeing that the Jews would be able to resist CHRIST, at the first opening invites their tribes to the singing of Psalms, describing the LORD’S praises with the sweetest truth. O come, let us sing unto the Lord. Secondly, the LORD Himself speaks, that the aforesaid people should not harden its heart, lest that should befall them which befell their fathers, who did not attain to enter the land of promise. Harden not your hearts.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of David. Literally, when the people passed over by Jordan; and he hints in it the despair of the Jews. I was vexed with this generation. As I sware in My wrath.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The calling of the Jews, and their rejection.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of encouragement, and as it were of command.
