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, by His holy Advent, will crush Antichrist. The prophet speaketh the praises of CHRIST, and prayeth to CHRIST concerning the Jews. The Church rendereth thanks to CHRIST, and speaketh of the Jews and of the prince of the devils, and of the perdition of idols, whose name is put out for ever and ever, and of the Advent of CHRIST, Who came that the man of the earth might no more be exalted: for dead men were worshipped as Gods.

VEN. BEDE. For the hidden things of the Son. The name of the Son, signifies the Person of the LORD the SAVIOUR. He saith hidden things, in the plural, because he denoteth not one Advent only, but both. It ought to be known that in the Hebrew, the expression is, For the death of the Son: but the LXX. interpreters preferred, in referring to the Passion and Resurrection of CHRIST, to use the expression, the hidden things of the Son, lest they should set forth to the Gentiles that which before they were unacquainted with … All this Psalm is spoken in the person of the Prophet. He begins by expressing his joy in the LORD, for that He hath put the Devil to confusion; whose worship was destroyed by His Advent; I will give thanks unto Thee, O Lord, &c. Next, he exhorts the faithful to sing Psalms to GOD, Who avengeth the blood of the poor, and lifteth them up from the gates of death: O praise the Lord, Which dwelleth, &c. Next, He telleth of the end, which will come upon sinners together with Antichrist: the wicked shall be turned into hell. Then, vehemently grieved at such overwhelming misery, he turneth himself to the LORD, as if GOD had withdrawn from the defence of the poor, and given the wicked licence to work out their own will: Why standest Thou so far off, O Lord? And fifthly, He prays that the time of that tremendous judgment may draw nigh, and that all these evils may be ended, and the wickedness of no man longer prevail. Arise, O Lord, &c.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The death and Resurrection of CHRIST; His Reception of the kingdom, and destruction of all His enemies.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of CHRIST receiving the Crown and the Throne, and putting His enemies to flight. Also concerning the attacks of the enemy on Adam and all his posterity, and how CHRIST put an end to his arrogance.

ARABIC PSALTER. Of the hidden things of the SON, as respects the glory of CHRIST and of His Resurrection and Kingdom, and the destruction of all the disobedient.
