Product Description

The Word Biblical Commentaries are scholarly treatments of the scriptures. This volume is the second of three in this series on the Psalms. This work covers Psalms 51-100 and is written by Marvin Tate. The commentary begins with an introductory section which discusses the major elements, themes and historical backgrounds of these Psalms, but he leaves most of the introductory comments to P. Craigie in the first volume of this series (Psalms 1-50). The analysis of these Psalms is based on linguistics, Hebrew poetics and historical analysis. A good scholarly text.

Publisher's Description

The middle section of the Hebrew Psalter has long been regarded as an inspiring anthology of ancient religious poetry. Within this part of the Sepher Tehillim or Book of Praises, are 11 of the 12 psalms of Asaph (73-83), one of Solomon's two (72), the sole offerings of Ethan (89) and Moses (90), and four of the songs ascribed to the sons of Korah-not to mention the many assigned to David.

Dr. Marvin Tate's distinctive commentary traces all the biographical, historical, literary, and practical concepts of these middle psalms and demonstrates how the purpose of each one unfolds.

Psalms 51-100, Volume 20 of the Word Biblical Commentary series, furnishes readers with a wealth of information:

  • a thorough, up-to-date bibliography preceding each psalm
  • the author's fresh translation of the Hebrew text
  • Form/Structure/Setting notes which expand the translation
  • extensive comments on the text
  • explanations of the pertinent observations of the author

Dr. Tate has also attempted to present various views of passages in which differences of opinion exist.

This work, the middle commentary of Word Biblical Commentary's three-volume study of the Psalter, mirrors the opposing emotions so often evident in life: sorrow-joy, love-hate, and faith-fear. A careful reading of Psalms 51-100 will stimulate a deeper appreciation for this religious poetry while augmenting the value of personal Bible study.
