Item description for Psalms I 1-50 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Mitchell Dahood...

Psalms I (1-50) is the first of a three-volume commentary on the biblical book of Psalms. It offers a unique, lively translation of the most beloved collection of poetry in Judeo-Christian sacred Scriptures. Based on his linguistic analysis of both biblical and extrabiblical texts, Mitchell Dahood, S.J., interprets this Hebrew poetry in light of rich linguistic and cultural evidence. Dahood's translation captures the beauty and full texture of Hebrew poetry. It offers an accurate English rendering, framed within the dynamic poetic forms of the Hebrew text. Through the use of Ugaritic and cognate literature, Dahood corrects mistranslations and illuminates previously obscure phrases. The fruit of a masterful analysis of the original texts, this fresh translation, the comprehensive notes, and the groundbreaking commentary establish Dahood's Psalms I (1-50) as the premier commentary on the Psalms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Psalms I 1-50 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

Mitch Dahood--an academic novelty  Mar 20, 2003
This three volume commentary on the book of Psalms is in many ways the culmination of a lifetime of study in Semitic philology by one of the 20th century's most gifted and original semitists. However, Dahood's originality often took a commanding role over and against his training as a philologist. The commentary is essentially philological, and is of rather limited interest to the non-scholar; there are several other Psalms commentaries that would prove far more usefull to the interested non-scholar (Hans-Joachin Kraus's three volumes on the Psalms ["Theology of the Psalms", "Psalms 1-50", and "Psalms 51-150" published by Fortress Press] come to mind as a thoroughly academic, yet far more useful and usable commentary). In addition to Dahood focusing on nitty-gritty details of Northwest Semitic linguistics, there is the lamentable fact that he all too often grossly overstates the case of comparative linguistic data, and simply offers wholely implausible readings of biblical texts. One cannot help but think of Dahood's unfortunate publication of a text from the ancient city of Ebla, in which he claimed that it was a direct parallel to a passage in the book of Proverbs; as it turns out, the text in question was a butcher's list of different cuts of meat.

The material in this commentary is of interst to professional students of the Hebrew Bible, Hebrew language, and Semitic philology--all too often as a warning of what NOT to do. As a commentary of use to the layman, it should be avoided. The forthcoming commentary of Kselman should be a most welcome addition to Psalms scholarship.
