Summary "This volume deals with the Targum of 1 and 2 Samuel. It systematically discusses its text, translation techniques and the usage of several Aramaic words
"The book is important for those interested in early Jewish history and theology, especially for those studying all kinds of Targumim
It also provides a commentary, including an English translation, to the entire Targum of these books."
The commentary offers a supplement to commentaries on the Hebrew text of the books of Samuel, because it provides part of the history of exegesis."--Jacket
