Item description for Psalms of Solomon: A Critical Edition of the Greek Text (Texts and Studies in Late Judaism and Early Christianity) by Robert B. Wright...
The Psalms of Solomon, the most important early psalm book outside the canonical psalter, reflects the turmoil of events in the last pre-Christian century and gives an apparently eyewitness account of the first invasions of the Romans into Jerusalem. The Psalm of Solomon provides the most detailed expectation of the Jewish Messiah before the New Testament. Wright's critical edition is the first complete critical edition of the Greek texts of the Psalms of Solomon.

Reviews - What do customers think about Psalms of Solomon: A Critical Edition of the Greek Text (Texts and Studies in Late Judaism and Early Christianity)?
The new standard Jul 14, 2008
This is the new standard text for the Psalms of Solomon. It contains an extensive introduction (53pp) followed by a presentation of the Greek text and English translation. Some translational notes and a few cross-references are in footnotes. A critical apparatus alerts readers to variant readings in both Greek and Syriac traditions. There is also a 15 page bibliography. Note, however, that this is by no means a commentary or theological/ thematic treatment of the book. Rather, it is "A Critical Edition of the Greek Text."
