9780825425622: A Commentary on the Psalms: 1-41 (Kregel Exegetical Library)

For thousands of years, the Book of Psalms has been one of God's people's richest resources for expression of 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. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing their understanding of the Psalms and for improving their ability to expound it with precision and depth.


For each psalm, Dr. Allen Ross guides the reader through a detailed exegetical outline, proposes a homiletical outline, and offers a summary expository idea of the message of the whole psalm.


The commentary includes discussion throughout of three primary challenges to understanding the 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.

  • The Psalms' Hebrew grammar and syntax pose a challenge to many expositors, whether they are familiar with Hebrew or not. This commentary illuminates Hebrew constructions word meanings in a way that is helpful both to readers who are comfortable with Hebrew and those who are not.<.li>

From the Back Cover:

The Book of Psalms has been the people of God's richest resource for expressing worship and developing the spiritual life. It is also one of the more complex and challenging sections of the Bible to expound responsibly and meaningfully. Pastors, teachers, and all serious students of the Bible will find this commentary invaluable for developing their understanding of the Psalms and for improving their ability to expound it with precision and depth.

Allen P. Ross, Ph D, University of Cambridge, is professor of divinity at Beeson Divinity School. He is the author of Creation and Blessing: A Guide to the Study and Exposition of Genesis and Holiness to the LORD: A Guide to the Exposition of the Book of Leviticus.

"Ross has given us the rich reflections of decades of research and teaching. But make no mistake. This is no sterile tome; it is a thorough, erudite exposition grounded in a deep faith for which students of the Psalms will be grateful for years to come."
M. Daniel Carroll R., Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Denver Seminary

"Every generation or so a benchmark publication emerges that eclipses all works of the genre that have preceded it and sets the standard for all subsequent attempts. Ross has accomplished this in his massive three volume commentary on Psalms."
Eugene Merrill, Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary

"Professor Ross's extensive and superb introduction alone is worth the purchase of the commentary."
C. Hassell Bullock, Franklin S. Dyrness Professor of Biblical Studies Emeritus, Wheaton College

"An invaluable tool for all those who seek to understand and expound the Book of Psalms. ...[Ross] guides the expositor through each step of observation, analysis, interpretation, and application, which if followed are sure to enrich preaching and teaching of the Psalms."
John N. Oswalt, Visiting Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

"This commentary, which is the culmination of his years of research and reflection on the Psalter, exhibits the exegetical skill and theological insight that readers have come to expect from this outstanding scholar...It is the finest commentary on the Psalms available today."
Robert B. Chisholm, Jr., Chair and Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
