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.

A new edition, complete in one volume.

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.

In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with some wear to extremities, slight rubbing and the odd mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean but with the odd spot and handling mark and with a slight repair to title page.
