Abraham Bibago's Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics is a highly technical close reading of the first nine books of Aristotle's text and Averroes' middle and long commentaries on it. It is the only extant Hebrew commentary on the Metaphysics. While the commentary itself contains almost no biblical references or allusions, Bibago's introductory remarks are made up primarily of interwoven biblical quotes. This introduction thus offers a biblical or religious context to a purely philosophical text.
