Psalms 35:15

But in my adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the attackers gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
18. And against Me they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together (ver. 15), against Me only: they rejoicing, I sorrowful. But we heard just now in the Gospel, "Blessed are they that mourn." If they are blessed that mourn, miserable are they that laugh. "Against Me they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: scourges were gathered together against Me, and they knew not." Because they laid to My charge things that I knew not, they also knew not Whom they charged.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Against me. Hebrew, "in my distress "(Houbigant) or "infirmity. "(St. Jerome) Thus was my kind attention repaid. (Haydock) My enemies became only the more insolent, and stood beside me, to show their contempt. (Calmet) Scourges. Hebrew also, "vile men "(Berthier) necim, people stricken, gathered themselves upon me, and I knew not. "(Mont.) (Haydock) The Roman psalters have "and they were ignorant "ignoraverunt. (Calmet) David could not think that he had given any offence: much less had our Saviour. (Haydock) He knew no just cause why the Jews persecuted him, as they were actuated by malice. (Worthington) David knew not personally those who afflicted him. (Menochius)
