A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

ARG. THOMAS. That the praise of CHRIST should be celebrated in all Churches. The Voice of CHRIST to the faithful concerning the Resurrection, judgment to come, promising rest to them who suffer for His Name, and to give them power over all that afflicted them. The Praise of CHRIST in all Churches, and for the holy Martyrs who suffered for CHRIST.

VEN. BEDE. We are instructed to have this name in use in every way, seeing that it is aptly fitted to both the Old and New Testaments: to the Old, where the miracles in Egypt and the blessings at the Red Sea are described; to the New, in the present Psalm, wherein we are enjoined to Sing a new song unto the Lord.

In the first paragraph the Prophet saith that a new song should be sung to CHRIST the LORD in divers ways, Who of His loving-kindness hath built up universal Jerusalem out of the whole world. O sing unto the Lord a new song, &c. Secondly, describing the joys and virtues of the Saints, he saith that vengeance shall be the lot of sinners, glory of the righteous. The Saints shall be joyful in glory.

In the foregoing Psalm he urged all creatures to the praises of the LORD; here he hath further more plainly and specially signified that Israel ought to sing a new song, and be joyful in its own LORD, Who caused it to be gathered together out of the multitude of the Gentiles. And mention is made of the power which is to be given to the Saints in that judgment, that the might of the LORD may be acknowledged in their glory.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Concerning the new temple. And this Psalm is anonymous. Praise with doctrine of GOD.

EUSEBIUS OF CÆSAREA. A hymn with prophecy.

S. ATHANASIUS. A Psalm of counsel with a song.
