Author:Hyatt, J. Philip
Year:1971
Title:Commentary on Exodus
Place:London
Publisher:Oliphants
Pages:351 p.
Series:New Century Bible

Collection Title:International Critical Commentary
Place:Edinburgh
Publisher:T. & T. Clark
Abstract:This series has proved its value over the course of many years. Most volumes are sixty to seventy years old, but a number of volumes have appeared recently. The writers presuppose a knowledge of Hebrew and Greek on the part of the reader, and much detailed information is supplied, only some of which will be helpful to the translator. More recent research has drawn heavily upon this series, though modifying many of the critical positions it reflected.

Collection Title:Interpreter's Bible
Place:Nashville
Publisher:Abingdon
Abstract:This series covers the whole of the protocanon. In addition to the exegetical material, a varying proportion of each page is occupied with exposition, as well as with the text of KJV and RSV. Even within the same volume, for some books of the Bible the exegetical material is of little help to the translator, while for others it is clear and comprehensive. A knowledge of Hebrew and Greek is useful but not essential when using this series.

Pages:xiv, 1386 p.

Author:Janzen, J. Gerald
Year:1985
Title:Job
Place:Atlanta
Publisher:John Knox
Pages:xii, 273 p.
Series:Interpretation
Abstract:Introduction deals with the setting of the book in the history of the religions of the ancient near east and of Israel's religion, the approach to interpreting the text (literary reading, irony, and existential questions), and matters of text (translation and integrity). Approach is heavily existential, an approach that the nature of the book seems to accommodate quite easily. RSV generally used when author does not supply his own translation; no running text. Comments are quite useful in terms of the structure and flow of the text. Some details are excellently handled (19.23-27) while many translator's needs are passed over. Well to use in conjunction with other material. Hebrew lightly used. Language level a bit heavy for many second-language English speakers.

Title:The Book of Amos: A Commentary
Place:Louisville
Publisher:Westminster John Knox Press
Pages:xix, 177 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:Introduction discusses the period and person of the prophet, his message, and the book (discussing the components both in terms of redaction and of composition, both linear and concentric, and in terms of theological modifications over time). NRSV is the running text, but with author's/translator's modifications. Good coverage of how the text moves from point to point, with theological and cultural implications quite clearly explained. Hebrew is transliterated as needed and explained fairly well, but apparently with the assumption that the reader understands Hebrew. Not all details covered for translators, but generally quite carefully explained. English level a bit high but not excessively so. Translated by Douglas W. Stott

Title:1, 2, and 3 John
Place:Peabody, Mass
Publisher:Hendrickson
Pages:xv, 208 p.
Series:New International Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Good, balanced introduction discusses the author; readers, date, and provenance; historical setting and occasion; doctrine: Christ and the Spirit; ethics: love and sin; spirituality; [church] politics; occasion and purpose; genre and language; and theological themes. No running text, but based on NIV. Covers general structure quite well, and details are good for such a short commentary. Transliterated Greek often used but may be ignored by the untrained, or else it is explained.
