5.0 out of 5 stars
Splendid sympathetic and readable translation, 9 Jan. 2011
This translation shows a real appreciation of the original Hebrew, as well as the wants of a modern Western reader. A wry sense of humour makes the commentary a jolly reference. The author also resists the temptation to show off his obvious learning and comments only on important or stylistic points. Highly recommended.
