Any Pastor or serious Bible student needs this volume on Genesis in his library. This exposition is "tops" among the Genesis commentaries. It far exceeds any of the commentaries written in modern times. Since John Gill quotes from rabbinical sources this clears up may of the hard texts to interpret in Genesis. Without an understanding of the Jewish mind on many portions of God's Word ( esp. in Genesis) it is impossible to view the full meaning of the text.
