Book Description:

The Psalms are a carefully arranged collage of history, prophecy, and praise.

James M. Hamilton provides a fresh translation and interpretation of the Psalms. This second volume treats Psalms 73-150. Though commonly read in isolation, the Psalms are best read as a collage that tells a story of God's faithfulness to his people through his king. Hamilton observes the significance of the Psalter's intentional macro--structuring and intricate links across neighboring psalms. Hamilton interprets with a literary sensitivity and an eye towards canonical connections. Learn where the Psalms belong in the redemptive story, how they relate to God's people, and how they find their fulfillment in Jesus.

The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) series locates each biblical book within redemptive history and illuminates its unique theological contributions. All EBTC volumes feature informed exegetical treatment of the biblical book and thorough discussion of its most important theological themes in relation to the canon--all in a style that is useful and accessible to students of Scripture.

Endorsements:

"I knew that Jim Hamilton was a careful and reverent reader of the Bible, but this awareness exploded onto my mental horizon as I read this magnificent commentary. The entire Psalter has been worked into this commentator's heart and mind in a way that every commentary should do but few accomplish so transparently. The blend of literary care, canonical integration, exegetical insight at the level of the original language, Christ-connecting instinct, and reverent gravitas makes this a really wonderful and landmark work. Though long, words are not wasted. I will return to this work every time I preach, teach, and write on a psalm."
--Dane Ortlund, pastor, Naperville Presbyterian Church

"The older I get, the more I treasure the psalms, and the more eagerly I welcome help in understanding the psalms more deeply, reverently, and wondrously. That is why I am so thankful that James Hamilton, one of the most significant figures in biblical scholarship in this generation, has produced this new commentary on the psalms. From the first psalm to the last, Hamilton offers both insight and conviction. This commentary belongs on the desk of every preacher and in the library of every Christian."
--R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Jim Hamilton has given us a commentary on the entire book of Psalms- no small feat! The clear and straightforward exposition of each psalm is helpful for both non-specialist as well as scholar. Helpful outlines present the literary structure-so important to grasp the details. Significantly, this commentary interprets Psalms as a single book with its own storyline and also shows how it fits into the storyline of Scripture as a whole. This will certainly be a helpful resource for the church of Jesus Christ."
--Peter J. Gentry, Donald L. Williams Professor of Old Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This is an excellent new commentary that does more than repeat what other commentaries say with a few little wrinkles here and there. It pays attention to the structure of the Psalter as a whole in order to understand the overall message of the nook as eschatological and messianic. This allows one to interpret each psalm within its true canonical context, which is essential to good interpretation. Everyone who preaches or teaches the psalms needs to use this helpful resource."
--Craig A. Carter, author of Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis

"This commentary is by a man who loves God and loves the psalms, and both shine through clearly in his work. Written in an accessible, conversational style, Hamilton's analysis engages the specifics of the text through a nuanced, original translation of the Hebrew, interacts with the best of contemporary and older scholarship, and presents an original reading of the Psalter as a book that consistently points to Christ. Whether one agrees with Hamilton at this point or that, one will benefit greatly from the many insights in this work."
--David M. Howard, Jr., professor of Old Testament, Bethlehem College and Seminary
