HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



PSALM 107

 

PSALM CVII.  (PARATUM COR MEUS.)

The prophet praiseth God for benefits received.

 

Ver. 1.  Himself.  By repeating here what occurs in Ps. lvi. and lix.  David teaches us to excite our fervour by such sentiments as have formerly made an impression upon us.  Bert. --- He spoke before of his own victories: now he considers those of Christ, and of his Church, (Geneb.) as well as the state of the captives.  Theod.  C.

 

Ver. 2.  My heart, &c.  Is not repeated in Heb.  But it is, Ps. lvi. 8.

 

Ver. 3.  Arise, my glory.  Is found also in this psalm, though not here in Heb. &c.  S. Jerom (ad Sun.) thinks some copyist has inserted it.  C. --- But it seems to be here in its proper place.  Bert.

 

Ver. 4.  Nations.  David made various conquests, which prefigured those of Christ, to whom the rest of the psalm belongs.  S. Aug.  W.

 

Ver. 7.  That.  See Ps. lix. 7.  W.

 

Ver. 8.  Holiness.  Or holy one, sancto: (H.) meaning Jeremias xxv. 11. who foretold the end of the captivity, (C.) or David himself, and the Messias, his son, in whom he will rejoice.  H.
