New Version - Targum on the Song of Songs

Written by Michael Hanel on April 25th, 2009

BibleWorks user Jay Palmer continues his work in the Targums with yet another addition. This time he brings us the Targum of Song of Songs. Here are his words describing the version:

The following English Language translation of the Song of Songs Targum was compiled by the scholar Adam Clarke and is found within his six-volume commentary on the entire bible. Notably, this work provides the Aramaic expansions and interpolations that the Song of Songs Targum made upon the canonical Song of Solomon.  This text can be compared with the TAR/ Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon database within BibleWorks and is helpful for those who desire to study the Song of Songs Targum.  Clarke’s footnotes, which often prove to be very informative, are available for viewing within the BW Analysis Window.

In addition- Adam Clarke was a Christian scholar who, while providing helpful commentary, demonstrates an antagonism towards Judaism within some portions of his work.

Clarke’s six-volume commentary is found at various websites and is public domain.

And when the King Messiah shall be revealed unto the congregation of Israel, the children of Israel shall say unto him, Be thou with us for a brother, and let us go up to Jerusalem…  (SOL 8:1 TSS)
