Introit of Fifth Sunday After Easter

Psalm 48:20

Declare it with the voice of joy, and make it known, alleluia: declare it even to the ends of the earth: The Lord hath delivered His people, alleluia, alleluia. Ps. Shout with joy to God, all the earth, sing ye a psalm to His name: give glory to His praise. V. Glory be to the Father. Declare it.


Verse 20. Fathers. Like them he shall die. H. — Heb. reads in the second person, with Syr. Aquila, &c. C. — Yet Prot. Mont. and others agree with us and the Sept. — And he. Heb. “they.” The — edit. however, has oyetai. Each individual, as well as the whole collection of the damned, shall be deprived of light and comfort. H. — Chal. “the just shall live like his fathers, a long and happy life; but the wicked shall enjoy no light in the life to come.”
