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 is the Corner-stone and the Day of our illumination. That man may be shown the Way, that is, CHRIST, the gate whereby there is entrance, which cannot be shut, The Voice of CHRIST speaking of Himself, and throwing open the way to man, entering on which he may reach the gate, passing through which he will utter Alleluia to the LORD, that is, the praise of heart, voice, and righteous deed. The Voice of the Prophet concerning persecution. The Voice of CHRIST against the Jews. The Voice of the Apostles to the Gentiles. Of the trouble of the enemies.

VEN. BEDE. This Psalm closes its four first verses with a similar ending, as counselling in fourfold exhortation that the whole world ought to give praise to the One GOD in the Gospel number. The faithful people, loosed from the chains of sin, makes a general exhortation in the first section that all should give thanks unto the LORD; because it has found, from being heard in trouble, that man need not be feared: O give thanks unto the Lord. Secondly, it saith that trust should be placed in the LORD only; by Whom the people is shown to have escaped the hostility of the Gentiles, and to have attained the medicine of the truest life: It is better to trust in the Lord. Thirdly, it saith that the gates of righteousness are to be opened for it; adding further concerning the Cornerstone, that is, the LORD the SAVIOUR: Open me the gates of righteousness. Fourthly, it urges on other Christians the duty of frequenting the courts of the LORD, rejoicing with sweet delight in the coming of the Holy Incarnation: Blessed be He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Anonymous. It is literally spoken of Asaph the Recorder, and of the Priests ministering unto the LORD. It also prophesieth of the conquering warriors and of CHRIST.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The Victory of them that fight in CHRIST, and a prophecy of CHRIST.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm with confession; also, Betokening a ready mind together with song.
