A Commentary on the Psalms, vols. 1-2



For thousands of years, the book of Psalms has been one of God’s people’s richest resources for worship and the spiritual life. It’s also one of the most 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. Allen P. Ross guides the reader through a detailed exegesis, proposes a homiletical outline, and offers a summary expository idea of the message of each psalm.

This commentary addresses the three primary challenges to understanding the Psalms:

  • Textual issues: Every major textual difficulty is addressed, helping 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 specifies the precise devices being used and how they work in each psalm.
  • Grammar and syntax: This commentary illuminates the grammar and syntax of the Hebrew in a way that is helpful both to readers who are familiar with Hebrew and those who are not.
