Product Description

The second installment of Dr. Allen Ross's acclaimed three-volume commentary. For thousands of years, Psalms has been one of the richest resources for worship and development of the spiritual life. At the same time it is one of the more complex and challenging sections of the Bible for expositors and students. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing an understanding of Psalms and for improving the ability to expound it with precision and depth. This is volume two of a three-volume commentary on Psalms. For each psalm, Dr. Allen Ross provides a translation of the text and an overview of the context. He then guides the reader through a detailed exegetical outline and offers an expository idea for the message of the whole psalm. The commentary includes discussion throughout of three primary challenges to understanding Psalms: . Textual issues: Every major textual difficulty is addressed in order to help the expositor understand the interpretive issues and make decisions when there are multiple available readings. . Poetic language: The psalms are full of poetic imagery, devices, and structures. Ross discusses Hebrew poetry in its context with each psalm, specifying the precise devices being used and how they work in the psalm. . Hebrew grammar and syntax: The Hebrew of Psalms poses a challenge to many expositors. This commentary illuminates Hebrew constructions and word meanings in a way that is helpful both to readers who are comfortable with Hebrew and those who are not.
