A Trinitarian rereading of the psalms - Book 2

More Trinitarian reponses to the psalms, drawn from  J. N. Neale and R. F. Littledale's A Commentary on the Psalms: From Primitive and Mediaeval Writers. 4 vols. London: Joseph Masters, 1868.

The last of these, Psalm 72, is also a lovely example of the fourfold sense of Scripture.

The literal sense teaches                 what took place

The allegorical sense                        what you ought to believe                 (faith)     credenda

The tropological/moral sense        what you ought to do                         (love)      agenda

The anagogical sense                       what you must hope for                     (hope)    speranda

In Psalm 72, Christ is the true Solomon (allegorical), so serve him now (tropological), knowing you will reign with him in the future (anagogical).
