Matthew Henry, British born author of this commentary, studied law before becoming a Presbyterian minister in his native England. His purpose in writing the commentary was not to create a critical literary work, or even a translation of Scripture, but rather to develop a timely, practical and sensible explanation of the Bible in an exhaustive verse by verse study guide. He wanted the average layman to understand the Bible for his or her own personal growth, knowledge and appreciation of its content.
At the time of his sudden death at the age of 52 (in 1714), he left the still unfinished commentary to be completed by various ministers.
