Final volume in acclaimed Psalms commentary by Allen P. Ross
For thousands of years, Psalms has been one of the richest resources for worship and development of the spiritual life. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing an understanding of Psalms and for improving one's ability to exposit it with precision and depth. This is the third of a three-volume commentary on Psalms.
The commentary includes discussion throughout of the 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 this language of Hebrew poetry in its context with each psalm, specifying the precise devices being used and how they work in the psalm.
- 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.
