Author:Provan, Iain
Year:1991
Title:Lamentations
Place:London; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Marshall Pickering; Eerdmans
Pages:xviii, 142 p.
Series:New Century Bible Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses name and place in the canon; literary character; author, date, and place of composition (all three uncertain); whether for private or public use, theology; and text and interpretation. Running text not printed out, but RSV used in discussion. Good help for translation in terms of details; nature of the book means little can be said of general structure. Hebrew transliterated, but the untrained will often not understand the discussion.

Title:Obadiah: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary
Place:New York
Publisher:Doubleday
Pages:xxvi, 310 p.
Series:Anchor Bible
Abstract:Introduction includes preliminary observations (study attempts to focus on text itself rather than operate from any one of the postmodern approaches), condition of the text, literary style, compositional history and unity, structure and coherence, relation to Jeremiah, other biblical parallels, Edom in the Latter Prophets, date and historical setting, and theology and rhetorical purpose. Bibliography is lengthy. Author's full formal-correspondent translation is followed by detailed "Notes" on sections, each section followed by briefer "Comments" on that section. Most help for translators may be in the Notes, where information seems easily retrievable, and where little a translator may need will be missing in this detailed treatment. Maps included. Hebrew used regularly, and this may mean some disadvantage for those not trained in it.

Title:1 and 2 Thessalonians
Place:Wilmington, Delaware
Publisher:Michael Glazier
Pages:xvi, 113 p.
Abstract:"Biblical-theological" in purpose, essay in format, not a "word-by-word commentary." Therefore does not suit our purposes. (New Testament Message)

Title:Nations Under God: A Commentary on the Book of 1 Kings
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:xv, 198 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Background, history, literary matters touched upon in a three-page introduction. No running text, but uses RSV. Comments are mostly in terms of scenic/situational background, theological comments interspersed, but rarely deals with the kind of details translators need. Often seems a mere retelling of the biblical story. Hebrew never used.

Abstract:Introduction covers relation between Paul and the Galatians; occasion and purpose; content and character; the churches addressed; date; and authenticity. Accepts southern Galatian theory and early date. ASV running text. Occasionally uses Latin expressions. Discusses general progression of text. Greek not needed for comments, but needed for copious footnotes, which complete the details discussed in the comments. (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)

Title:Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah: A Commentary
Place:Louisville
Publisher:Westminster/John Knox
Pages:223 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:General introduction discusses prophetic literature and historical-critical scholarship. Each specific introduction discusses the general background, outline, text, date, and the prophet and his message. RSV running text is followed by careful textual notes (good detail for translation purposes) and commentary (broader structures and meaning discussed). Scholarly level of language, knowledge of Hebrew assumed and important. Highly recommended.

Title:Let Us Be Like the Nations: A Commentary on the Books of 1 and 2 Samuel
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:xiv, 289 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Brief introduction excellent for translators; discusses authorship and composition, context (socioeconomic & political, religious, and beliefs and practices), and the message. No running text; RSV is base of discussion. Translators will be able to see the flow of the narrative and general structure of the text, but instead of the details translators need, the author concentrates on cultural, historical, and theological significance of text. Writer's background in India assists in maintaining awareness of cultural matters. Language level reasonable for second language speakers of English. Hebrew, when transliterated, is adequately clarified for the untrained.
