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, reigning from the Tree among the nations, is to be shown in His second coming. The Voice of the Apostles to the people, and concerning the confusion of the idols and the calling of the Church. The Voice of the Church calling. The Prophet, touching the first and second coming of CHRIST.

VEN. BEDE. As to the letter, the time signifies that when the Temple was restored at Jerusalem on the loosing of the Babylonian captivity. But spiritually the destroyed house is built when after the captivity of sin, the soul recovers the way of truth. For that house, to wit, the Church universal, wherein CHRIST dwells, is always being built up with living stones, until the number of the elect shall be fulfilled at the end of the world.

In the first part of the Psalm the Prophet exhorts the general body to sing unto the LORD, and to preach the coming of the LORD’S Incarnation throughout the world, because He is Very LORD above all Gods. O sing unto the Lord, &c. In the second place, he warns the various nations first to offer themselves, then to discharge the office of preaching, and he makes mention of both comings of the LORD, as well that wherein He was judged by the world, as that wherein He is to judge the world. Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The Calling of the Gentiles, and the Coming of CHRIST.

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