    Its a good commentary The author gives a simple explanation of the text in the original meaning section He then gives extra details in the Bridging the context section He writes the different views of other OT scholars, and then he gives reasons why he chooses the one he does Its not a bad commentary The only thing I have a mixed review is some of the application parts However, it is still a solid commentary.
