The Psalms contain the praises of the people of God. They are the people of Israel’s creed. But more than that, they reveal historical personal accounts which demonstrate how the people of God are to put their trust in him in every circumstance; they display the character of God, who is majestic, sovereign, and compassionate.

Praise for the Print Edition
Allan Harman’s commentary is the fruit of a lifetime’s study of the Psalter and provides a well-informed, reliable guide to the vast literature on the subject. The extensive introduction is itself worth its weight in gold while the Scripture text is opened up in a clear, careful, and devout way.
—Philip H. Eveson, former principal, London Theological Seminary
Harman’s commentary on the Psalms is a solid exposition of the Psalms. The focus is on the original meaning of the psalms with clear explanations of the message of each psalm through an analysis of structure, key words, and the flow of the psalm. And yet, the meaning of the psalms for God’s people today is also emphasized by showing important connections to the New Testament. The reader will discover the rich treasures in the Psalms through the use of this commentary.
—Richard P. Belcher Jr., professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary
Allan Harman writes as a Christian scholar, with academic precision and devotional warmth. The unique character of this commentary is undoubtedly due to the method of its preparation . . . After completing careful exegesis of each psalm, Allan brought the fruits of his study into the service of family worship in his own home. The result is a commentary that is both academically solid and devotionally rich. This commentary will be a worthy resource for the pastor and student in the study as well as the layman seeking personal edification.
