Below you will find my on-going commentaries on the various books of the Bible.
This is a work in progress. Some things are being added "on the fly" as I write them. Typically,
those comments are based on my marginal notes in books that I am reading at the time.
Other comments are my personal observations which I have developed into articles that I thought
were best placed in this section of my website.
Then there is that group of commentary that is based on my long-term studies of a particular
book for which I have written commentary with the intent to eventually publish in book form.
The latter group most specifically refers to my commentaries on the Proverbs. My Proverbs
commentary is a complete study of the book (nearly 1200 pages) which I wrote in the 1980s during
my seminary education, but never edited or published. I hope to gradually return to those studies,
and bring them up to date and present them here. I also have a similar (but unfinished) commentary
on the book of Zephaniah (Zephaniah and the Day of the LORD), and another unfinished
commentary on the Psalms entitled Reflections on the Psalms of which "Not So Simple
Reflections on Psalm 1" is already published here in the section on the Psalms.

The sixty-six books of the Bible, accepted by all Catholic and Reformed/Protestant canons.
I exclude from this list all the Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphical books of both testamental eras, otherwise known as
the Extra-canonical texts. Any discussions or commentaries on those texts, or on the Talmud, the Apostolic or
Post-apostolic Fathers, the Patristic documents, the Gnostic texts, etc., may be found in other areas of this site.
