Recommended Free Commentary on Proverbs

A COMMENTARY ON PROVERBS by Charles Bridges (PDF File)

This commentary, written in 1847 is often mentioned positively by Bruce Waltke in his two volume commentary on Proverbs. I think it would be a good second commentary or good by itself. The chapter numbers are in Roman numerals so you have to brush up on that if your knowledge is weak like mine, but the verse numbers are as ours are (what’s the term?). This can easily be converted to an eBook if you have any kind of a reader or just save the file, which I would recommend in case it disappears.

    Here is a pdf form courtesy of http://www.archive.org . That site is THE place to go for free pdfs on public domain material.

    Thanks for mentioning the commentary. I’ll get the pdf.

    Also, we technically call our numerals Arabic numerals, though I think some have disputed the actual origin of the numbers. *Shrug.*

    Also: I just moved to WordPress. It’s pretty neat.

    I dunno when I’ll start blogging more regularly, though. It might be a while.
