Berlin: De Gruyter, 2017 pp. x + 321. $114.99
Description: "The End of the Psalter" presents new interpretations of Psalms 146-150 based on the oldest extant evidence: the Hebrew Masoretic Text, the Hebrew Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Greek Septuagint. On a sound methodological foundation the book analyses and compares these sources including their intertextual references, and concludes that Psalms 146-150 were at first separate texts which only in the Masoretic Text form the end of the Psalter.
