Overview

Richard Hess has written an insightful commentary on one of the most intriguing books of the Bible, which celebrates God's gift of love.

Following an introduction to the biblical book and a history of its interpretation, Hess divides his discussion into seven major sections. Each section begins with a fresh translation, followed by paragraph-by-paragraph commentary, and concluding with a summary of the passage's theological implications.

Technical questions related to the Hebrew text or scholarly debate are addressed in the footnotes. Pastors and teachers will find here an accessible commentary that will serve as an excellent resource for their study.

This is the first volume in the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series.
