This version is abridged. All the main points in the original seem to be present here; however, some of Matthew Henry's expansive comments and pious exclamations that make this work as much a devotional as a commentary have been edited out. Here is just one example, from Gen. 1:1-2.

ORIGINAL VERSION:
The Son of God, the eternal Word and Wisdom of the Father, was with him when he made the world (Prov. 8:30), nay, we are often told that the world was made by him, and nothing made without him, Jn. 1:3, 10; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:2. O what high thoughts should this form in our minds of that great God whom we draw nigh to in religious worship, and that great Mediator in whose name we draw nigh!

THIS VERSION:
We are often told that the world was made by the Son, and nothing was made without him (Jn 1:3, 10; Eph 3:9; Col 1:16; Heb 1:2)
