Especially note that this long-awaited improved English-only edition has short explanations beside almost every Psalm.

(Note: there are some Jewish prayers, called “blessings,” that are said by Jews before and after reciting some parts of the Hebrew Bible in synagogue services. These prayers are printed in this book; they apply only to Jews, and should not be said by Gentiles. Please send us any questions by email.)
