Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Commentaries: Home


This guide is intended to help students find online access to scholarly commentaries on every book of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. These guides will vary in academic "rigor" ranging from purely academic to pastoral in nature. The idea is to give students a broad range so that they can choose what best suits their needs for a given situation; whether it be for an academic exegesis paper or to help write a sermon.

Please remember that these are not all the commentaries available; these are just suggestions. Unfortunately not all publishers have made all of their works available digitally. There might also be excellent commentaries that are not on these lists; to find out everything that the DTL has on a certain book use the search above to find books in the catalog.
