UBS Handbook Series


The UBS Handbooks are detailed commentaries providing exegetical, historical, cultural, and linguistic information on the books of the Bible. They are prepared primarily to assist Bible translators but are also helpful for others who wish to study, reflect on and communicate the Scriptures. Although the commentaries are based on the original biblical languages, it is not necessary to know these languages to benefit from the commentaries.

  • In English: Most of the books of the Old Testament (others are forthcoming); all the books of the New Testament; and 3 Deuterocanonical books (Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon; others are forthcoming).
