Comments: Underlying Vulgate Edition see: »Psalms«. Cunyus maintains that the destruction of the Temple in 587 B.C. precipitated the emerge of the written Torah, which may have existed at least in parts and oral traditions prior to the devastation of Solomon‘s Temple. - Key words are printed in Hebrew script, translated and explained. Texts presented verse- wise.
