In A Commentary on the Book of Exodus, Cassuto’s comments have a vivid quality seldom found in the exegetical writings of other biblical expositors, who all too often prefer a simplistic and lifeless approach to their subject. Cassuto succeeds in injecting a sense of dramatic excitement into his interpretations. Without neglecting the scientific data provided by archeological and philological research, he makes us conscious of the literary attributes of the Bible.

A Commentary on the Book of Exodus does not separate the annotations from the biblical text, but forms a continuous, unified commentary in which the scriptural citations are interlinked with the exposition. The elements are so closely and artistically interwoven as to form a new literary entity—not a text with notes, but a homogeneous expository work, which must rank among the finest modern contributions to the treasury of biblical learning.

In the Logos edition of A Commentary on the Book of Exodus, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, make this important work more available than ever for Hebrew study.

“but not so the cherubim, which are imaginary beings to be found neither in the sky, or on the earth, nor in the waters” (Page 407)
