Top Five Commentaries on Proverbs
Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of their top five commentaries on Proverbs. I am not familiar with Van Leeuwen's work But I would replace Hubbard and Kidner with Fox and Longman. I would also add Clifford (OTL) to the runners-up. In any case, the top five Keith Mathison has listed are:
1. Bruce K. Waltke -- The Book of Proverbs: Chapters 1-15; The Book of Proverbs: Chapters 15-31 (New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 2004, 2005).
2. David A. Hubbard -- Proverbs (The Preacher's Commentary, 2002).
3. Raymond C. Van Leeuwen -- "Proverbs" in The New Interpreter's Bible (1997).
4. Tremper Longman III -- Proverbs (Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms, 2006).
5. Derek Kidner -- Proverbs (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 1964).
