This volume is a companion to Psalms 1-59 by the same author. Kraus provides a fresh translation for each Psalm, with text critical notes, and sections on the "Form" of the Psalm, the "Setting" in the worship of Israel, "Commentary," and "Purpose and Thrust." In "Setting" and "Form" Kraus discusses the text, meter, and type of Psalm: Hymn of Thanksgiving, Royal Psalm, Liturgy, and so on. The Commentary, of course, provides insight into the meaning of the language of the Psalm. Very useful information is found in all the sections, but it is the last section, Purpose and Thrust, that distinguishes this commentary from others. In it Kraus describes the major themes of the Psalm, the ideas it works with, and in the case of those Psalms that are quoted in the New Testament, a discussion of the place of the Psalm in that literature. This is a legacy of the original from the Biblischer Kommentar series in German. Kraus has made a valuable contribution to the discussion of the Psalms in Israel's worship, and to the use of the Psalms in the New Testament.
