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 bestows eternal blessedness on them that fear Him. The Voice of the Prophet touching CHRIST and the Church. This, the ninth step, declares that all who fear the LORD, under the type of a wife, flourish about the table of the Altar or of the Holy Scripture, and that they see children’s children of their own doctrine and example, and peace upon Israel in heaven is their end. The Prophet speaks to the Church concerning CHRIST. The Voice of all that fear GOD.

VEN. BEDE. How noble the ninth step is, the very number declares, which, extended to a triple ternary, shows us the holy majesty of the Trinity. Rightly, therefore, in such a step as this, and everywhere, is the fear of the LORD urged on us, to whom it is shown to be a necessary protector.

In the first paragraph the prophet, under certain figures, counts up the blessings of them that fear the LORD; that he may kindle the minds of the devout with the fire of heavenly reward. Blessed are all they that fear the Lord. In the second part, he blesses them, that they may receive eternal joys; lest every one should be afraid of this most sweet fear. The Lord from out of Sion shall so bless thee, &c.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Anonymous. One of the Songs of Degrees. It is uttered concerning Zerubbabel, Prince of Judah, and of his furtherance of the building. It implies also the calling of the Gentiles.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. The calling of the Gentiles.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm declaring blessedness.
