Psalms of Solomon

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A Jewish pseudepigraphical collection of eighteen Psalms. Though extant only in Greek (and a Syriac translation of the Greek), they were almost certainly written in Hebrew. They date from the post-Maccabean age, probably from the years 70–40 bc. The last two Psalms predict the coming of a Messiah of the house of David.

Subjects: Christianity.
