    Psalms 40:1

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xvi Pg 35
    Deut. xv. 7, 8.

    Loans are not usually given, except to such as ask for them. On this subject of lending,4068

    4068 De fenore.

    however, more hereafter.4069

    4069 Below, in the next chapter.

    Now, should any one wish to argue that the Creator’s precepts extended only to a man’s brethren, but Christ’s to all that ask, so as to make the latter a new and different precept, (I have to reply) that one rule only can be made out of those principles, which show the law of the Creator to be repeated in Christ.4070

    4070 This obscure passage runs thus: “Immo unum erit ex his per quæ lex Creatoris erit in Christo.”

    For that is not a different thing which Christ enjoined to be done towards all men, from that which the Creator prescribed in favour of a man’s brethren.  For although that is a greater charity, which is shown to strangers, it is yet not preferable to that4071

    4071 Prior ea.

    which was previously due to one’s neighbours.  For what man will be able to bestow the love (which proceeds from knowledge of character,4072

    4072 This is the idea, apparently, of Tertullian’s question: “Quis enim poterit diligere extraneos?” But a different turn is given to the sense in the older reading of the passage: Quis enim non diligens proximos poterit diligere extraneos? “For who that loveth not his neighbours will be able to love strangers?” The inserted words, however, were inserted conjecturally by Fulvius Ursinus without ms. authority.

    upon strangers? Since, however, the second step4073

    4073 Gradus.

    in charity is towards strangers, while the first is towards one’s neighbours, the second step will belong to him to whom the first also belongs, more fitly than the second will belong to him who owned no first.4074

    4074 Cujus non extitit primus.

    Accordingly, the Creator, when following the course of nature, taught in the first instance kindness to neighbours,4075

    4075 In proximos.

    intending afterwards to enjoin it towards strangers; and when following the method of His dispensation, He limited charity first to the Jews, but afterwards extended it to the whole race of mankind. So long, therefore, as the mystery of His government4076

    4076 Sacramentum.

    was confined to Israel, He properly commanded that pity should be shown only to a man’s brethren; but when Christ had given to Him “the Gentiles for His heritage, and the ends of the earth for His possession,” then began to be accomplished what was said by Hosea: “Ye are not my people, who were my people; ye have not obtained mercy, who once obtained mercy4077

    4077


    Anf-01 ix.vi.xix Pg 28
    Prov. xix. 17.

    For God, who stands in need of nothing, takes our good works to Himself for this purpose, that He may grant us a recompense of His own good things, as our Lord says: “Come, ye blessed of My Father, receive the kingdom prepared for you. For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me to eat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took Me in: naked, and ye clothed Me; sick, and ye visited Me; in prison, and ye came to Me.”4056
