Comments: Hardcover octavo with sewn binding; XXIV & 432 pp. Masorah (kri) and English translation interlinear. The commentary, beneath text, is taken from “The Artscroll Tehillim“ (1988) by Hillel Danziger. The Publisher‘s Preface, signed by Rabbi Meir Zlotowitz and Rabbi Nosson Scherman, is dated Sivan 5761 / June 2001, Brooklyn, N.Y.; they let the reader know:
»A look at a typical page of this book provides the answer. Even someone fluent in Hebrew will often come across an unfamiliar word or phrase. To look at an adjoining column or facing page for the translation will solve the problem, but often at the price of a loss of concentration. (…) [Here] the translation is directly beneath each word or phrase – not opposite the line, but intermingled with it.«
Rabbi Menachem Davis, in his Editor‘s Foreword, dated Sivan 5761 / June 2001, writes:
»The translation is based on that of the STONE TANACH, Where necessary it is modified in order to make it read smoothly in the interlinear format. The commentary is primarily that of the ArtScroll TEHILLIM translated and annotated by Rabbi Danziger.«
The subtitle “Simchas Yehoshua“ means “Joy of Salvation“ and can be found e.g. in Hanna´ s prayer in 1 Samuel 2:1
