"This is one of the most useful Latin versions of the Psalms that has appeared in modern times; it is faithfully executed, without being servilely literal. The notes, though brief, are sufficiently explicit, and are designed to explain obscure passages; to elucidate, by a short paraphrase, peculiar expressions that could not be rendered in the text by a single word; to point out the principal various readings worthy of note; to state briefly the arguments for the renderings of particular words, concerning which interpreters are by no means agreed, with references to philological works in which those arguments are more copiously discussed; and to suggest probable meanings to words of doubtful interpretation, which are submitted to the reader's judgment."--Horne: Intro. to Crit. Study Holy Script; Bibliography V., Lond., 1846, p323.
