Jewish commentary on the Psalms Aug 29, 2006
These commentary have both sides - positive and negative. From my viewpoint there are many interesting details, which are missing in other commentaries about Psalms. Author reviews the text from Jewish perspective and defines many passages differently than Christians do. Usually in Christian commentaries about Psalms an author hurry to compare them with the New Testament passages. It is good and OK, but here author compares the psalms in the context of the Old Testament and gives interesting conclusions. I think negative side of this work is such that there are too much words and obvious statements. This commentary could be shortened in one volume instead of three. In these commentaries it is hard to find statements about Messiah in the Psalms and author doesn't even mentioned any of Christian interpretation in comparison with Jewish viewpoint.
