Question
Do you know where I can find an ENGLISH translation of Midrash Tehillim for Psalm 21? Thank you.
Answer
Midrash Tehillim is not one of the most classic works of our sages, and as accordingly, like other such secondary books, is studied from the original Hebrew (by the time one gets around to learning it, he already has mastered Hebrew!). As far as I'm aware, the only translation to English was done by a reform "rabbi" Braude, and accordingly is probably not totally accurate and loyal to the original, but rather slanted according to his agenda, as are most reform works.
