"Phis commentary hss enjoyed an extraordina
ry popularity as a piaetteed exposition of God's
%void. It differs from any Miler, presenting the
Beet evangelical illustrative and practical com
ments which the editors acre able to select from
the hest scholars, on each passage in course. The
text being . onotted, it is enabled to iiresent a vast
amount or learning in a small space. The sour

guarantee alto soundness, both of doctrine and
interpretation while the advantage of haying the
option of different commentators is apparent and
very great. - -N. P. Erangehst:
'We tepid the Eclectic Commentary, now in
