Author:McKane, William
Year:1998
Title:Proverbs
Place:Nashville
Publisher:Thomas Nelson
Pages:lxxv, 306.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses authorship and date (family plus royal provenance), literary forms, limitations of proverbial sayings (retribution problem), text and versions, Egyptian and Mesopotamian influence, history of interpretation, and the shape of the commentary. After author's literal translation of the whole book, short pericopes are repeated with textual notes, then Form/Structure/Setting, then comments by verses, and then explanation. Very good material for both general and specific information, but often terms are taken for granted where translators could use help. Hebrew cited regularly without transliteration in the textual notes, occasionally cited in transliteration only in the other comments.

Collection Title:Mercer Commentary on the Bible
Editor:Mills, Watson E.; Wilson, Richard F.
Place:Macon, Georgia
Publisher:Mercer University Press
Pages:xxii, 1347 p.
Abstract:Good introductory articles to Bible and to individual books. Covers Apocryphal and Deuterocanonical books appearing in LXX. Modern critical methods, literary, documentary, historical. Comments serve as good overview of sections and provide significance, but seldom include details. Assumes Mercer Bible Dictionary as companion volume. No running text; quotes apparently are authors' ad hoc translations. Language level generally clear, occasional lapses into heavy language. Have seen no Hebrew or Greek terms.
