(Clark's Foreign Theological Library, 4th series, vol. 49-50; Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 1876). This translation was reprinted several times in the USA by Eerdmans of Grand Rapids, MI, and Hendrickson of Peabody, MA, who published the whole Keil & Delitzsch Biblischer Commentar set in the Edinburgh translation. Eerdmans began with a straightforward reprint of all the volumes of the Edinburgh edition: the Ezekiel commentary was C. F. Keil, Biblical Commentary of the Prophecies of Ezekiel. 2 vol. (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1950). This 2-vol. edition was subsequently reprinted a number of times at least up to 1970. In the early 1970's the 25-vol. set was reformatted as 10 vol., and in this format (reprinted on various occasions) the Ezek comm. was printed with Daniel as vol. 9: e.g. C. F. Keil, Ezekiel, Daniel. Translated by James Martin [Ezek] and M. G. Easton [Dan] (Commentary on the Old Testament in Ten Volumes, Vol. 9; Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1982). In the late 1980's the publishing rights passed to Hendrickson: C. F. Keil, Ezekiel, Daniel (Keil & Delitzsch, Commentary on the Old Testament in Ten Volumes, Vol. 9; Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 1989, repr. with slight revisions 1996, repr. with accompanying CD-ROM 2006). The whole set of commentaries is easily available on several online sources and in the main bible-software products.
