The book of Psalms is the heart of the Old Testament, the libretto of the most vibrant worship imaginable. It informs our intellect, stimulates our imagination, arouses our emotions and stirs us to holy thoughts and actions. It is also a pivotal witness to, and anticipation of, Jesus Christ. Tremper Longman’s commentary on Psalms is the mature fruit of scholarship and sensibilities developed over a career of exploring Old Testament poetry and wisdom. The commentary interprets each psalm in its Old Testament setting, summarizes its message and reflects on its significance from a New Testament perspective, providing a christological reading. The Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty-eight volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the Old Testament, aiming to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Psalms


Longman eschews the canonical method, apart from considering Psalms 1 and 2 as an introduction and Psalms 146-150 as a conclusion to the Psalter, with a journey from lament to praise and a 5-book structure that perhaps emphasises the connection of the Psalter to Torah (Psalms, 35-6).
