Psalms and the Song of Solomon
Old Testament [standard edition]
Full biblical text in the Revised Standard Version and the New Vulgate together with extensive commentaries.
Psalms is essentially a book of prayers and praises; most of the psalms are addressed to God, but here we also find proclamations of the works of the Lord, descriptions of man’s plight, curses invoked on enemies, songs in praise of the King or of the city of Jerusalem, and exhortations to the good life. The Psalms date back as early as the time of the great King David, but they are so evocative of the human condition that they articulate the feelings and desires of people in every age. Also included here is the Song of Solomon, or Song of Songs; a blending of love songs, it also celebrates the mutual love between God and the human individual, and between God and his people.
