Ignoring modern criticism almost entirely, all his writings represent the view that the books of the Old and New Testaments are to be retained as the revealed word of God. He regarded the development of German theological science as a passing phase of error.

His chief work is the commentary on the Old Testamentwhich he undertook with Franz Delitzsch. To this work he contributed commentaries on all delitzscy books from Genesis through Esther, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and the minor prophets.


He came of Hebrew parentage; studied at Leipsic, and became ocmmentary in ; was called as ordinary professor to Rostock in ; then to Erlangen in ; and back to Leipsic in His exegetical activity really commenced at Erlangen, where he prepared independently and in connection with Karl Keil some of the best commentaries on the Old Testament Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, which had been produced in Germany.

These were soon translated into English and published at Edinburgh.

Delitzsch opposed the idea “of fencing theology off with the letter of the Formula of Concord. In he founded a seminary at Leipsic in which candidates of theology are prepared for missionary work among the Jews, and which in memory of him is now called Institutum Judaicum Delitzschianum.

Overview – Keil and Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament

The Old Testament is the basis of the New. For Christ came not to destroy the law or the prophets, but to fulfil.

As He said to the Jews, “Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me;” so also, a short time before His ascension, He opened the understanding of His disciples, that they might understand the Scriptures, and beginning at Moses and all the prophets, expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

With firm faith in the truth of this testimony of our Delitzscj, the fathers and teachers of commejtary Church in all ages have studied the Old Testament Scriptures, and have expounded the revelations of God under the Old Covenant in learned and edifying works, unfolding to the Christian community the riches amd the wisdom and knowledge of God which they eelitzsch, and impressing them upon the heart, for doctrine, for reproof, for improvement, for instruction in righteousness.


It was reserved for the Deism, Naturalism, and Rationalism which comjentary so prevalent in the closing quarter of the eighteenth century, to be the first to undermine the belief in the inspiration of the first covenant, and more and more to choke up this well of saving truth; so that at the present day depreciation of the Holy Scriptures commenntary the Old Testament is as widely spread as ignorance of what they really contain.

At the same time, very much has been done during the last thirty years on the part of believers in divine revelation, to bring about a just appreciation and correct understanding of the Old Testament Scriptures. May the Lord grant His blessing upon our labours, and assist with His own Spirit and power a work designed to promote the knowledge of His holy Word.
