This is the Commentary on Psalms ©1850 by Joseph A.
Joseph Addison Alexander (24 April 1809 – 28 January
1860) was an American biblical scholar. He was born in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the third son of Archibald
Alexander and brother to James Waddel Alexander and
William Cowper Alexander.
He graduated at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton
University) in 1826, having devoted himself especially to the
study of Hebrew and other languages. From 1830 to 1833,
he was adjunct professor of ancient languages and literature
at Princeton. In 1834, he became an assistant to Dr. Charles
Hodge, professor of oriental and biblical literature in the Princeton
Theological Seminary, and in 1838, he became associate
professor of oriental and biblical literature there, succeeding Dr.
Hodge in that chair in 1840 and being transferred in 1851 to the
chair of biblical and ecclesiastical history, and in 1859 to that of
Hellenistic and New Testament literature, which he occupied until
his death at Princeton in 1860. Alexander was a remarkable
linguist and exegete. He had been ordained as a Presbyterian
minister in 1839, and was well known for his pulpit eloquence.
He was the author of The Earlier Prophecies of Isaiah (1846),
The Later Prophecies of Isaiah (1847), and an abbreviation of
these two volumes, isaiah Illustrated and explained (2 vols., 1851),
The Psalms Translated and Explained (3 vols., 1850), commentaries
