Old Testament Commentary
From the commentary compilations by Keil & Delitzsch:
- Volume 1: Pentateuch
- Volume 2: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel
- Volume 3: 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles
- Volume 4: Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job
- Volume 5: Psalms
- Volume 6: Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs
- Volume 7: Isaiah
- Volume 8: Jeremiah, Lamentations
- Volume 9: Ezekiel, Daniel
- Volume 10: Minor Prophets
He was a scholar who went along slowly and deliberately, not fantastic, but all the more reasonable and clear, not witty, but all the more beneficial in doctrine and charm by wonderful, unapproachable theories.
