A Psalm is basically a poem set to music and sung. For centuries the Psalms would have been the most familiar part of scripture to people who had no access to books. They are not only an integral part of the shared experience of the church but they also communicate God’s guidance to this world, reveal his character and encourage his people.

In his previous volume, Psalms 1–89: The Lord Saves, Eric taught us about the first three books of the Psalms (Psalms 1 to 89). In it he introduced us to the staggering range of subjects covered in the Psalms.

This volume continues his exposition with the last two books of the Psalms (90 to 150) – which includes the earliest Psalm (Psalm 90 – attributed to Moses), and the Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120 to 134). Each of these two books ends with their own doxology.

This collection of Psalms is ancient – as least as old as the second or third century B.C. It is not chronological, nor even grouped according to author. The style is predominantly praise but the Psalms also include prayers, complaints – and even curses.

This volume also contains an appendix, giving a suggested chronological order for the Psalms. All of which makes this a fascinating book to seek guidance from – with the experienced help of Eric Lane.

“He is warning them as well as reassuring himself that it will be worse for them than for him. In verse 4 he spells out the details: those who have sharpened their tongues like sharp arrows will be pierced with them; and those whose words have been as destructive as fire will themselves be consumed by flames. The broom tree had a particularly hard wood which burned fiercely and long. The psalmist may be speaking of a physical punishment or the counter-charges God will bring against them when he calls them to account.” (Page 142)

“With its stress on sin and forgiveness it best fits the great Day of Atonement” (Page 169)

“That this assurance of forgiveness is only open to the contrite, to those who share the sentiments of verses 1–2, is clear from its effects on the psalmist: you are feared. True forgiveness does not breed complacency and carelessness; quite the opposite, it creates an even greater awe of God, as of one whose love is more humbling than his holiness!” (Page 171)

“Even David was not always able to pour out his heart in praise to God spontaneously, but had to ‘shake off dull sloth’ and stir up his spirit.” (Page 57)

“It chiefly exults in God’s faithfulness to his covenant, which is as everlasting as he himself is.” (Page 57)

For each section of the Bible, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries summarize the passage of Scripture, including the intentions of the authors, the historical and cultural environment, and the questions and issues raised by a particular passage. But most importantly, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries brings you into the heart of the Bible, by explaining Scripture in an accessible way that makes sense for daily Christian living.

These commentaries are popular level commentaries especially useful for pastors and small group leaders. They are useful for personal devotions and spiritual growth. Many of the authors of the commentaries are leading expositors of God’s Word on their speciality subjects. The series holds to the inerrancy of scripture and the uniqueness of Christ in salvation.

A commentator of yesteryear once said that he never wrote a commentary on a Bible book before he had read the book through at least fifty times. Eric Lane shows the same extensive direct contact with the text and this gives his work an attractive and stimulating freshness. His views on the chronological order of the psalms are somewhat controversial but will likewise stimulate the reader.
