I understand this is something of a major coup, as this is the first time this series has been brought to any Bible software. Congratulations to OakTree; it's nice when the home team wins a big one.

Many of the volumes are available elsewhere, but we believe we have the most complete set, and we plan to add new ones as they are published.

Very glad to hear that. I am curious if there is a reason Martin Noth's Exodus was not part of the classic volumes??? (I was told it has fallen into public domain and indeed have it as a personal book elsewhere, not that it is a particularly strong volume, but just curious.

Moses is now to go to this rock with the rod which had played a part in the plague narrative at the striking of the Nile (7.17, 20ab J), and to take with him some of the elders as witnesses; it is thus supposed that the rest of the people are not to join in seeing the miracle (this is also implied in the first sentence in v. 5). Then when Moses strikes the rock with his rod Yahweh will make water come out from it. And thus it happens. Thereupon Moses names the place Meribah (‘place of faultfinding’) because there Israel had ‘found fault’ with him (v. 7). The story of Meribah is told once again in Num. 20.1-13. It is connected with a definite place in the wilderness which was doubtless still known to the Israelites at a later date. It was the place where there was a spring with the name Meribah; this name originates from the time when nomadic shepherds of the wilderness used to assemble at the spring of Meribah and there determine their ‘disputes at law’. The spring of Meribah gushed from a rock in a way which so surprised those who went there that they could only think that at one time the rock had been made to produce water in a miraculous way.

 Martin Noth, Exodus: A Commentary (The Old Testament Library), n.d., 139–140.

 

1962

 

"Translated by J. S. Bowden from the German Das zweite Buch Mose, Exodus."

 
Martin Noth (August 3, 1902 – May 30, 1968) was a German scholar of the Hebrew Bible who specialized in the pre-Exilic history of the Hebrews. With Gerhard von Rad he pioneered the traditional-historical approach to biblical studies, emphasising the role of oral traditions in the formation of the biblical texts.

I am thrilled to finally see this series in Accordance. These volumes were my "go to" commentaries during my graduate work. I still consider some of them the finest available, anywhere.

Ok thanks for the answer. Just seemed strange as it was even released with the OTL cover design still used today, but perhaps since it is no longer under copyright they didn’t keep the files.
