Imperial 8vo, price Twelve Shillings,


Authorized English Versions of the Book of Psalms,




"This is a most praiseworthy, laborious, and learned work. It has evidently been to the author a labour of love. The work bears marks of close, diligent, and reverential study throughout. The author is an excellent Hebraist, and has a thorough acquaintance with both patristic, medieval, and Reformation Theology."--The Record.

"In preparing his work, the author merits commendation for the labour which he has bestowed upon the collation of manuscripts, editions, and versions, and for his industry in collecting passages from many authors of all periods. On these accounts the volume will be useful to the critic and the expositor, who will find in it much curious matter worthy of attention."-- Journal of Sacred Literature.

"The title of this valuable work is accurately indicative of its contents. To appreciate the excellence of this book, it must be not only read, but studied. The quotations from the writings of the ancient Christian and Jewish authors, with reference to the Psalms which Mr. Coleman views as prophetical of the future exaltation of Christ in the Millennial kingdom, and of the events by which its establishment is to be preceded, are intensely interesting. The work is beautifully printed in a large and clear type."-- Achill Missionary Herald.
