Part One covers Genesis 1-6:8.

The aim of this commentary is to explain, with the help of an historico-philological method of interpretation, the simple meaning of the biblical text, and to arrive, as nearly as possible, at the sense that the words of the Torah were intended to have for the reader at the time they were written.

Clearly the best commentary on the first part of Genesis. Very in depth, with huge input from Cassuto's vast knowledge of ancient languages and literature. A must for the serious (or even the curious) student.
