Product Description

The bulk of Israel's religious poetry is preserved in the biblical book of Psalms. In this volume, the second of three on the Psalms, Mitchell Dahood, interprets this Hebrew poetry in light of a rich ancient collection of Ugaritic text. Dahood's translation captures the beauty and rich texture of Hebrew poetry. It offers an accurate English rendering, framed within the dynamic poetic forms of the Hebrew text. Through the use of Ugaritic and cognate literature, Dahood corrects mistranslations and illuminates previously obscure phrases. The fruit of a masterful analysis of the original texts, this fresh translation with its comprehensive notes and groundbreaking commentary, establishes Dahood's Psalms II 51-100 as the premier commentary on the Psalms. Softcover from Yale University Press.

Mitchell Dahood, S.J., was professor of Ugaritic Languages and Literature at the Pontifical Biblical Institude in Rome up to his death in 1982. He received his PH.D. under the direction of W.F. Albright at John Hopkins University.
