ESV Psalms Intro

The sneak peaks of the upcoming ESV Study Bible just keep coming.   Click here for the Introduction to the Psalms, along with the notes for Psalm 1.   From the promotional e-mail:

This pre-release PDF provides you a glimpse of what the ESV Study Bible is designed to deliver-namely, tools and information to help you understand God’s Word more deeply.   In this pre-release PDF you’ll find the following sections related to the Psalter:

  • Title
  • Theme
  • Authorship, Occasion, and Date
  • Key Themes
  • History of Salvation Summary
  • Musical Terms
  • Curses in the Psalms
  • The Psalms as Scripture
  • Literary Features
  • Structure

Three charts are also included, helping you to see (1) how certain Psalms relate to the historical narrative of 1-2 Samuel; (2) some of the literary features of the Psalter; and (3) how each of the five “books” of the Psalms fit together.

Our hope is that resources like this will provide you with a concise and informative overview of the Psalms (the hymnbook for God’s people at worship), enabling you to understand God’s Word in a deeper way.

The ESV Study Bible is set for release this October.
