AND thou shalt say in that day: I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, for thou wast angry with me: thy wrath is turned away, and thou hast comforted me.

Ver. 1.  Thanks.  Lit. "confess."  The Jews thank God for their return, as the Church does for her deliverance from sin.  W.


--- Canticles were composed on such occasions.  Ex. xv.


--- Angry.  They do not thank God on this account; but because he had averted his indignation.  C.

2 Behold, God is my saviour, I will deal confidently, and will not fear: because the Lord is my strength, and my praise, and he is become my salvation.


3 You shall draw waters with joy out of the saviour's fountains:

Ver. 3.  Fountains.  Instead of those which your fathers drank in the desert.  C.


--- You shall have the holy Scriptures, (H.) sacraments, &c.  Jo. iv. 13. and vii. 38.

4 And you shall say in that day: Praise ye the Lord, and call upon his name: make his works known among the people: remember that his name is high.


5 Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath done great things: shew this forth in all the earth. 6 Rejoice, and praise, O thou habitation of Sion: for great is he that is in the midst of thee, the Holy One of Israel.

Ver. 6.  Of thee.  He alludes to the name Emmanuel.  Christ preached, and his own would not receive him.  Jo. i. 11. and 26.  C.


--- He continues with us, concealed under the sacramental species.  M.
