Matthew Henry Complete Commentary on the Whole Bible
Originally written in 1706, Matthew Henry's six volume Complete Commentary provides an exhaustive look at every verse in the Bible.
Matthew Henry's well-known six-volume Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708–1710) or Complete Commentary, provides an exhaustive verse by verse study of the Bible. covering the whole of the Old Testament, and the Gospels and Acts in the New Testament. After the author's death, the work was finished (Romans through Revelation) by thirteen other nonconformist ministers, partly based upon notes taken by Henry's hearers, and edited by George Burder and John Hughes in 1811.
Henry's commentaries are primarily exegetical, dealing with the scripture text as presented, with his prime intention being explanation, for practical and devotional purposes. While not being a work of textual research, for which Henry recommended Matthew Poole's Synopsis Criticorum, Henry's Exposition gives the result of a critical account of the original as of his time, with practical application. It was considered sensible and stylish, a commentary for devotional purposes.
Famous evangelical Protestant preachers such as George Whitefield and Charles Spurgeon used and heartily commended the work, with Whitefield reading it through four times - the last time on his knees. Spurgeon stated, "Every minister ought to read it entirely and carefully through once at least."
Henry's reputation rests upon his renowned commentary, An Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (1708-10, known also as Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible). He lived to complete it only as far as to the end of the Acts, but after his death other like-minded authors prepared the remainder from Henry's manuscripts. This work was long celebrated as the best English commentary for devotional purposes and the expanded edition was initially published in 1896. Instead of critical exposition, Henry focuses on practical suggestion, and his commentaries contains rich stores of truths.

Matthew Henry Bible Commentary
For many years the printed edition of the Matthew Henry Bible Commentary has been my principal Bible study tool. It has been decisive in my understanding of hundreds of passages, thanks to all the information it provides. Translation from original Hebrew or Greek is one of Bible translations most difficult tasks. The explanation of what it meant in the original language is of enormous help. Also, historic, social, political, background are very helpful.
With the app it is way much easier to use anywhere at any time. I don’t have to carry the voluminous book around and research is much faster.
It is a huge blessing.
Matthew Henry's Commentary was given to me as a gift over ten years ago and it has transformed my bible reading understanding and comprehension. I used to use my concise version at least once a week for verses I wanted more insight with and or to help me be more prepared to enrich our conversation in small group study. Having the app gives me the full set in my pocket. I have really enjoyed the updates to this app as it is continually improved. Phenomenal app and I would recommend to everyone.
I am amazed how wonderful is this Bible app. It’s a wonderful thing to have God’s Word where you can have it in your phone or tablet where you can bring it with you any time and any where. Using it by personal reading and devotion or use to witness to reach out lost person in order for them to hear the gospel of salvation. Good job who ever is the person or individual who made this Bible app available for every one for free. God bless you all. Thank you very much.
