Psalm cxxx. (Domine non est.)

Notes & Commentary:

Ver. 1. Of David, is not in Septuagint. But he probably composed this psalm to exculpate himself from the accusation of pride. (Berthier) — It may agree with Esther, Nehemias, &c., 2 Esdras v. 15. (Calmet) — David proposes his own humility to the imitation of others, without any evil intention. (Worthington) — Sometimes the saints may speak their own praises, as St. Paul, did, particularly when they are inspired. (Berthier) — Above me. This deportment is admirable in the great. (Calmet) — We must neither undertake nor pry into things above our ability. (Menochius)

Ver. 2. So reward, &c. The meaning is, that according to his disposition with regard to humility, so he expected a reward in his soul to return to him, and stick as close to him as the child just weaned, which would willingly never be separated from the mother. (Challoner) — If I was not humble, may my soul be treated like an infant, &c. Hebrew, “If I did not render (or humble and silence) my soul, like an infant weaned from his mother, let my soul be to me as a weaned child.” I willingly submit to all thy rigours, if I did not adore thy ways in silence and in humiliation. (Calmet) — The text may be differently rendered. (Berthier) — As children come willingly to their mother, so the child of God approaches to Him, though he may not always find the same sweetness; and he expects that he will be rewarded accordingly. (Worthington) — Gemul means, “a weaned infant, or a reward.” (Du Hamel)

Ver. 3. Israel. This occurs in the preceding psalm. (Calmet) — David encourages all to hope by his own experience. (Worthington)

Bible Text & Cross-references:

The prophet’s humility.

1 A gradual canticle of David.

Lord, my heart is not exalted: nor are my eyes lofty.

Neither have I walked in great matters, nor in wonderful things above me.

2 If I was not humbly minded, but exalted my soul:

As a child that is weaned is towards his mother, so reward in my soul.

3 Let Israel hope in the Lord, from henceforth, now and for ever.
