Himself. By repeating here what occurs in Psalm lvi., and lix. David teaches us to excite our fervour by such sentiments as have formerly made an impression upon us. (Berthier) --- He spoke before of his own victories: now he considers those of Christ, and of his Church, (Genebrard) as well as the state of the captives. (Theodoret) (Calmet)
My heart, &c. Is not repeated in Hebrew. But it is, [in] Psalm lvi. 8.
Arise, my glory. Is found also in this psalm, though not here in Hebrew, &c. St. Jerome (ad Sun.) thinks some copyist has inserted it. (Calmet) --- But it seems to be here in its proper place. (Berthier)
Nations. David made various conquests, which prefigured those of Christ, to whom the rest of the psalm belongs. (St. Augustine) (Worthington)
That. See Psalm lix. 7. (Worthington)
Holiness. Or holy one, sancto: (Haydock) meaning Jeremias xxv. 11., who foretold the end of the captivity, (Calmet) or David himself, and the Messias, his son, in whom he will rejoice. (Haydock)
PSALM CVII. (PARATUM COR MEUS.)
The prophet praiseth God for benefits received.
