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, set upon the height of the Cross, stretched out His hands either to an unbelieving people, or to the FATHER. The Voice of CHRIST to the FATHER, or the Voice of the Church to the LORD that He would deliver her out of every trouble and teach her to do His will because He is her GOD. A Voice to the LORD. The Voice of Paul and the Apostles. Also a prophecy of CHRIST.

VEN. BEDE. This history, how David was persecuted by his son, is well known from the lesson in Kings. And this similitude, as some will have it, is extended to every Christian, who is harassed in the bitterness of this world by raging sins, as it were his own children, but against this is opposed remedial penitence, which this Psalm contains.

Although the prophet wrote many penitential Psalms, yet as he is wholesomely tested in exact proportion to the pricking of heart which he feels, he seems all the purer to divine inspection. Therefore in the first supplication, he beseeches the LORD CHRIST not to enter into judgment with His servant, but asks His mercy to help his trouble. Hear my prayer, O Lord, &c. In the second, he prays that he may attain pardon quickly, that led into the way of truth, he may be delivered from the snares of the enemies. Hear me, O Lord, and that soon.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of David. Concerning the Edomites who came against him. And the prayer of him that giveth thanks at all times for troubles.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. A prayer of one confessing.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of address, and prayer, and supplication.
