Publisher's Synopsis

With its scholarly insights, Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary is to verse-by-verse exposition what the venerable Matthew Henry's Commentary is to devotional-style commentaries. It sheds light on the full meanings and implications of words, verses, and passages to supply you with an in-depth understanding of the entire Bible.

Meticulously condensed to provide all the learned commentary of the original 6-book set in one convenient volume, Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary includes these features:

  • Words and phrases to be exposited are indicated in boldface for clear, easy-to-follow reading.
  • Introductions to each book of the Bible supply a detailed, big-picture context that helps you accurately comprehend biblical truths.
  • Shades of meaning drawn from the original biblical languages deepen your understanding of the Scriptures.
  • Extensive cross-referencing throughout the text helps you undergird your study with related verses.

Long considered one of the best conservative commentaries on the entire Bible, the Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary offers practical insight from a Reformed Evangelical perspective. The comments are an insightful balance between learning and devotion, with an emphasis on allowing the text to speak for itself. Volume one covers Genesis through Esther, volume two covers Job through Malachi, and volume three covers the entire New Testament (Matthew through Revelation). Introductions are offered for the Pentateuch, the Mosaic account of creation, Hebrew poetry, and for each book in the Old Testament, as well as for the gospels, Acts, Romans, and the entire corpus of the epistles.


"It is to some extent a compilation and condensation of other men's thoughts, but it is sufficiently original to claim a place in every minister's library: indeed it contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed this and used it diligently."     ~Charles Spurgeon


six hundred threescore and six—

"A and Vulgate write the numbers in full in the Greek. But B writes merely the three Greek letters standing for numbers, Ch, X, St. 'C reads' 616, but Irenæus, 328, opposes this and maintains '666.' Irenæus, in the second century, disciple of Polycarp, John's disciple, explained this number as contained in the Greek letters of Lateinos (L being thirty; A, one; T, three hundred; E, five; I, ten; N, fifty; O, seventy; S, two hundred). The Latin is peculiarly the language of the Church of Rome in all her official acts; the forced unity of language in ritual being the counterfeit of the true unity; the premature and spurious anticipation of the real unity, only to be realized at Christ's coming, when all the earth shall speak 'one language' (Zep 3:9). The last Antichrist may have a close connection with Rome, and so the name Lateinos (666) may apply to him.

The Hebrew letters of Balaam amount to 666 [Bunsen]; a type of the false prophet, whose characteristic, like Balaam's, will be high spiritual knowledge perverted to Satanic ends. The number six is the world number; in 666 it occurs in units, tens, and hundreds. It is next neighbor to the sacred seven, but is severed from it by an impassable gulf. It is the number of the world given over to judgment; hence there is a pause between the sixth and seventh seals, and the sixth and seventh trumpets. The judgments on the world are complete in six; by the fulfilment of seven, the kingdoms of the world become Christ's."      ~Revelations, Chapter 13
