Translated and Annotated by H. Norman Strickman

Rabbi Abraham ben Meir ibn Ezra was one of the outstanding personalities produced by medieval Andalusian Jewry. He was a noted poet, mathematician, astrologer, grammarian, and philosopher. However, above all Ibn Ezra was one of the greatest Bible commentators of all time.

Ibn Ezra's commentary on Psalms is part of the important intellectual bequest that this great medieval scholar left behind. It, along with the other works produced by the great minds of Israel, is part of the great "inheritance of the congregation of Jacob."

Rabbi Dr. H. Norman Strickman has already written the standard translation into English of Ibn Ezra's commentary on the Pentateuch, which has been widely accepted and praised. He now directs his attention to Ibn Ezra's commentary on Psalms and offers the public this first in a series of annotated translations.
