Commentary on the Old and New Testemant
Puritan John Trapp is one of the most admired and quoted of the older commentators. His large five-volume commentary is known for its pithy statements and quotable prose. His volumes are quoted frequently by other religious writers, including Charles Spurgeon.
Spurgeon aid of him,
"Would it be possible to eulogize too much the incomparably sententious and suggestive folios of John Trapp? Trapp will be most valuable to men of discernment, to thoughtful men, to men who only want a start in a line of thought, and are then able to run alone...Trapp excels in witty stories on the one hand, and learned allusions on the other.
Examples of his "pithy" quotes,
