What is by far the most beloved and widely read Bible Commentary ever published?1 Without doubt, it is that of Rev. Matthew Henry (1662-1714).
This has seen many editions and impressions. As the famous Anglican scholar Rev. William Romaine pointed out at the front of the fifth edition (in his own 1761 Recommendation to the Public): “There is no Comment[aryl upon the Bible, either ancient or modern, in all respects equal to Mr. Henry’s.”2 Remarked the renowned Baptist Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon:3 “Every Minister ought to read Matthew Henry entirely and carefully through.”
