Author:Matera, Frank J.

Title:Galatians
Place:Collegeville, Minnesota
Publisher:Liturgical Press
Pages:xiii, 252 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses the crisis at Galatia (problems and methods of describing the agitators), Paul's response to the crisis (structure and overview of the letter), identity of the Galatians (problem and solutions), and Galatians today (new understandings); good introduction to today's revised thinking, by both Roman Catholics and Protestants. Author's somewhat formal correspondent translation of each small section of text serves as running text, followed by notes on the Greek text (Greek transliterated, acquaintance assumed), then by Interpretation (which discusses structure, discourse matters, and significance). Good for overview and significance, theological and otherwise; many details needed by translators may be present, but they are difficult to retrieve, except where they occur in the notes.

Title:Micah: A Commentary
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Westminster
Pages:xii, 169 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:Introduction discusses: form of the book (including overview of the two sections, 1-5, 6-7); Micah's sayings, the man, and the mission; and the formation of the book (especially in Babylonian times). Author's translation is the running text, with textual footnotes. Discussion shows fairly well what is happening in the text, showing structure and movement, but details for translation are sometimes difficult to recover, have not been treated in a helpful way, or may be missing. Hebrew transliterated frequently throughout, often with no explanation for the untrained.

Title:I Samuel; II Samuel
Place:Garden City, NY
Publisher:Doubleday
Pages:xxi, 475; xvii, 553 p.
Series:Anchor Bible
Abstract:Introductions cover title, text and versions, literary history (deuteronomistic and prophetic histories, the oldest narrative sources-ark narrative, Saul cycle, and history of David's rise-succession narrative hypothesis, the Solomonic apology, sources from the reign of David, the attitude toward Solomon), and the end of the book. Good maps included. Author's fairly good formal correspondent translation, but leans heavily on LXX. "Textual Notes" have good comments for translating, provided one knows Hebrew and Greek. "Comments" are more general and interpretive. Little on discourse structure. Information easily retrieved.

Pages:xxii, 670 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:Introduction discusses literary and textual criticism of Proverbs 1-9, sentence literature in the book, the meaning of mašal, and detailed textual items from the LXX of Proverbs. Part One is a detailed study of international wisdom (Egyptian instruction, and Babylonian-Assyrian instruction and proverbs). Part Two provides, first, the author's FC complete translation, then full comments on the text, by broader section, then by verse. Good detail. Knowledge of Greek and Hebrew is required for proper understanding.

Title:A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on Jeremiah
Place:Edinburgh
Publisher:T. & T. Clark
Pages:cxxii, 658 p.
Series:International Critical Commentary
Abstract:The old ICC never had a published volume on Jeremiah. Introduction discusses chiefly problems of textual source and development of the book, and does so thoroughly: ancient versions, linguistic arguments, compositions by D (Thiel), the idea of a rolling corpus, units of poetry and source theory, historical problems, lament interpretation, and exegesis and theology. Author's translation as running text. In good ICC tradition, anything worthwhile textually is covered. Good information for translation, but often difficult for a novice to retrieve. Hebrew used regularly. Volume 1, Introduction and 1-25
