About Psalms 1-50 (Second Edition) (Volume 19) (With 2004 Supplement by Marvin E. Tate):
Peter Craigie demonstrates in this commentary that the biblical psalms express “the most profound of human feelings and insights-prayer, praise, liturgy, wisdom and lament.” Through careful analysis of language and form, he communicates both the emotional and theological impact of the psalms as originally experienced by the people of Israel at public worship and in private devotions.
Professor Craigie’s translations and interpretations of each of the first fifty psalms apply insights into the Hebrew language and Israel’s literature drawn from Ugaritic texts. He provides a careful and critical analysis of various controversial proposals based on these sources for understanding the early substance and later form of the Psalter.
About Psalms 51-100 (Volume 20):
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 Craigie in the first volume of this series (Psalms 1-50). The analysis of these Psalms by Marvin Tate is based on linguistics, Hebrew poetics and historical analysis. A good scholarly text.
About Psalms 101-150 - Revised Edition (Volume 21):
In this volume, Dr. Allen offers a survey of current research into text, grammar, syntax, lexicography, genre, structure and exegesis. A specialized bibliography accompanies the treatment of each Psalm. His translation is accompanied by notes on word studies as well as explanations of his divergences from commonly accepted translations. He brings the overall structure and divisions of each Psalm as to their literary form and their setting in the historical experience of Israel. Allen also attempts to trace the impact of various Psalms upon Christian thought and devotions and focuses on the NT uses of the Psalter.
