Communion of Feast of the Ascension

Psalm 67:33-34

Sing ye to the Lord, who mounteth above the heaven of heavens to the East, alleluia.


Verse 33-34. Sing ye to God, is rejected by S. Jerom; but defended by S. Hil. &c. It seems proper to connect the former sentence after Selah, (Bert.) or may be added instead, to express applause. H. — East. From Mount Olivet, which is on the east side of Jerusalem. Ch. — God fills all places, v. 5. Deut. xxxiii. 26. C. — Religion has gone westward, but will return to the east. Apoc. xvi. T. — Power. That is, he will make his voice to be a powerful voice; by calling from death to life, such as were dead in mortal sin: as at the last day he will, by the power of his voice, call all the dead from their graves. Ch. — He will come to judge with great majesty, (W.) and his thunder shall resound, as well as the last trumpet. 1 Cor. xv. 52.
