Although Petrus van Mastricht (1630–1706) praises John Calvin (1509–1564) as one of the best commentators of Scripture, he rarely refers to Calvin’s work in his Theoretico-practica theologia, and if he does, he conflicts or concurs. This contribution explores the reception of Calvin’s work by Mastricht, thereby focusing on exegetical continuities and discontinuities in their comments on the Psalms. It concludes that Mastricht gives more attention to etymological and philological issues of the Hebrew text than Calvin does, and emphasizes more than him the doctrine of immensity and the concept of the covenant.
