A Commentary on the Book of Psalms
By the Right Rev. George Horne, Late Lord Bishop of Norwich.
1840 - London - Thomas Tegg
8.5" by 6", xxxi, 656pp
A Commentary on the Book of Psalms by George Horne, in which their literal or historical sense, as they relate to King David, and the people of Israel is illustrated; and their application to Messiah, to the church, and to individuals, as members thereof, is pointed out; with a view to render the use of the Psalter pleasing and profitable to all orders and degrees of Christians.
George Horne D.D. (1730 - 1792) was an English churchman, writer, and university administrator. The best known work by Horne is his Commentary on the Psalms, 1771. The Commentary is partly exegetical and partly devotional; it proceeds on the principle that most of the Psalms are more or less Messianic, and cannot be properly understood except in those terms.
