Introit of All Saints

Psalm 32:1

Let us all rejoice in the Lord celebrating a festival day in honour of all the Saints: at whose solemnity the Angels rejoice, and give praise to the Son of God. Ps. Rejoice in the Lord, ye just; praise becometh the upright. V. Glory be to the Father.


Verse 1. David. There is no title in Heb.; and the Greek copies vary. This psalm may be considered as a continuation of the former, with the last verse of which it may be well connected. C. — Some suppose that David composed it after he had been rescued from the giant Jesbibenob. v. 16. 1 Par. xx. 4. Ferrand. — It is not certain that he is the author; but as other psalms without a title are ascribed to him, we have no reason to deny that he wrote this. Bert. — Many explain it as a thanksgiving of Ezechias. Theod. &c. — But we need not refer it to any particular event. C. — Upright. But it is not seemly in the mouth of a sinner. Eccli. xv. 9. W. Ps. lxix. 16. C.
