Matthew Poole's Continuators

Matthew Poole completed his Synopsis Criticorum (Synopsis of Interpreters) on the entire Bible in Latin. But he felt the need to supplement his magnum opus with a commentary on the Bible for English readers. He wrote his English Annotations on the Bible through Isaiah 58 before he died in Amsterdam. His friends decided to take up the remainder of the work and complete the English Annotations through Revelation. The list of continuators is available elsewhere but as it is not widely known, I have provided it below for those interested.

John Jackson [Isaiah 59, 60]
John Collinges (1623-1691) [Isaiah 61-66; Jeremiah; Lamentations; Gospels; 1 and 2 Corinthians; Galatians; 1 and 2 Timothy; Titus; Philemon; Revelation]
Henry Hurst (1629-1690) [Ezekiel; Minor Prophets]
William Cooper [Daniel]
Peter Vinke (d. 1702) [Acts]
Richard Mayo (d. 1695) [Romans]
Edward Veale (d. 1708) [Ephesians; James; 1 and 2 Peter; Jude]
Richard Adams (c. 1626-1698) [Philippians; Colossians]
Matthew Barker (d. 1698) [1 and 2 Thessalonians]
Obadiah Hughes (d. 1704) [Hebrews]
John Howe (1630-1705) [1, 2, and 3 John]
