Original Title: The JPS Bible Commentary: Song of Songs : The Traditional Hebrew Text with the New JPS Translation
Description:
Song of Songs is a wondrous collection of love lyrics nestled in the heart of the Hebrew Bible - songs of passion and praise between a young maiden and her beloved. It is religious lyric par excellence. But what is its true meaning? Is it an expression of human love and passion, pure and simple? A celebration of the covenant between God and Israel? Or something else? The latest volume in the Jewish Publication Society AEs highly acclaimed Bible Commentary series, Song of Songs provides a line-by-line commentary of the original Hebrew Bible text, complete with vocalization and cantillation marks, alongside the JPS English translation. Unique to this volume are four layers of commentary: the traditional Pa RDe S: peshat (literal meaning) , derash (midrashic and religious-traditional sense) , remez (allegorical level) , and sod (mystical and spiritual intimations) . Michael Fishbane skillfully draws from them all to reveal the extraordinary range of interpretations and ideas perceived in this extraordinary biblical book.
A comprehensive introduction, extensive endnotes, a full bibliography (traditional and modern) , and additional explanatory materials are included to enhance the reader AEs appreciation of the work. This original, comprehensive commentary on the Song of Songs interprets historical, critical, and traditional sources drawn from the ancient Near East, the entire spectrum of Jewish sources and commentaries, and modern critical studies.
