Commentary on the Holy Scriptures, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from Commentary on the Holy Scriptures, Vol. 5: Critical, Doctrinal and Homiletical, With Special Reference to Ministers and Students- Vol- V. Of the Old Testament- Containing the First and Second Books of Samuel The Commentary on the two Books of Samuel was prepared in German by the Rev. Dr. Erdmann, General Superintendent of Silesia and Honor. Professor of Theology in the Universiity of Breslau, and in English by the Rev. C. H. Toy, D.D., LL.D., and the Rev. John A. Broadus, D.D., LL.D., Professors in the Theological Seminary at Greenville, South Carolina. Dr. Erdmann, in his Preface, dated Breslau, March 8, 1873, says: 'In regard to the execution of the work in its several parts, I add the following remarks. In the translation, while I have tried to follow the ground-text closely, I have preserved as far as possible the tone and impress of Luther's translation. On account of the admitted defectiveness of the Masoretic text of these books, it seemed to me better not to place the textual remarks and discussions, together with the various readings and emendations, under the text of the translation, but to insert them in the exegetical explanations. In the exegesis I have departed in one point from the form usual in this Bible-Work, namely, instead of explanations under each verse, I have given an exegesis that reproduces the content of the text in connected development, following the received division of verses. "Exegesis," therefore, or "Scientific Exposition," would have been a fitter heading for the section in question than "Exegetical Explanations." In the next division, instead of the usual heading, "Dogmatic and Ethical Fundamental Thoughts," I have chosen as a more appropriate designation for these prophetical-historical books: "Theocratic-historical and Biblical-Theological Comments-" for we have here to do with a new step in the historical development of the Theocracy in Israel, and with the wider unfolding of the religious-ethical truth which has its root in the advancing revelation of God. From this point of view of the history of revelation and the theocracy, the comments and remarks of this section are intended to serve as contributions to the hitherto too little cultivated science of the Biblical Theology of the Old Testament. In the homiletical section, while I have given my own words, I have rather cited the diverse witnesses of ancient and modern times, from whom I could derive any valuable material for fruitful application and paraenetic use of the text on the basis of the preceding scientific exposition. In every part of my work on this portion of the Old Testament history of the Kingdom of God, with its fund of religious-ethical revelation, I have been constantly reminded of and deeply impressed by a profound saying of Hamanx, with which I here close: "Every biblical history is a prophecy, which is fulfilled through all the centuries and in the soul of every human being. Every history bears the image of man, a body, which is earth and ashes and nothing, the sensible letter- but also a soul, the breath of God, the life and the light, which shines in the dark, and cannot be comprehended by the darkness. The Spirit of God in His word reveals itself as the Self-sufficient in the form of a servant, in flesh, and dwells among us full of grace and truth." As regards the English edition, the work has been so divided that Dr. Toy prepared the Exegetical and Historical sections, and paid careful and minute attention to the Hebrew text- Dr. Broadus has reproduced the Homiletical and Practical portions, partly condensing and partly enlarging the original from English sources, especially from Bishop Hall's Contemplations and Sermons, Matthew Henry's Commentary, and Dr. W. Taylor's Life of David. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com"
