The Book of Malachi: Commentaries (post-1800)

[see also:  XII Prophets: commentaries (pre-1800) and XII Prophets: commentaries (post-1800)]

[Malachi-commentaries listed among the general commentaries on the XII Prophets (see links above) are not repeated in the present bibliography.]

The bibliography is divided into two sections:

I.   Commentaries published between 1800 and 1930

Barcellona, A., Parafrasi delle profezie di Aggeo, Zaccaria, e Malachia (Parafrasi de' libri de' Profeti, tomo V, parte terza; Venezia: Andrea Santini e figlio, tipografi, 1828). [on Mal pp. 185-235].

Vol. VI: Ezekiel—Daniel—and the Minor Prophets (London: John Murray, 1876) 740-750. [Popularly known as "The Speaker's Commentary" because it was undertaken at the suggestion of John Evelyn Dennison, Speaker of the House of Commons from 1857 to 1872.]

Des Alten Testamentes 20. Teil; Bielefeld: Velhagen und Klasing, 1876). [see below s.v. Pressel]. For these three biblical books the English-language edition substituted other commentaries for those of J. P. Lange which had not yet appeared: Packard, Joseph, "The Book of Malachi", in J. P. Lange – P. Schaff (eds.), A Commentary on the Holy Scriptures, Critical, Doctrinal and Homiletical, with Special Reference to Ministers and Students. Volume XIV of the Old Testament, containing the Minor Prophets: exegetically, theologically, and homiletically expounded by Paul Kleinert, Otto Schmoller, George R. Bliss, Talbot W.

Pressel, W., Commentar zu den Schriften der Propheten Haggai, Sacharja und Maleachi (Gotha: Schloessmann, 1870). [originally written for Lange's Bibelwerk (see above), but Pressel's views on the genuineness and integrity of Zechariah led to his text being rejected by Lange, who went on to supply the commentary on these three books himself.]
