Philosophical Commentaries

So I've been wanting to read philosophical commentaries and exposition on the Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Book of Wisdom. The commentaries/expositions could be open ended, as in having more than one interpretation, as long as they are clear in how they interpret it. I don't mind if the commentaries/expositions to be as lengthy as they can be, so the thickness of the book won't discourage me. Is anyone is familiar with this?

Re: Philosophical Commentaries

I was searching for something and stumbled upon St.Thomas's commentary on the Psalms. I have not personally read it but immediately thought of your post here. May be it would help.

I have Thomas on John, I think.

It is precisely “values” that are the powerless and threadbare mask of the objectification of beings, an objectification that has become flat and devoid of background. No one dies for mere values.

Re: Philosophical Commentaries

If you can find an English translation of either Gersonides or Nahmanides (or if you can read the original Hebrew) I would strongly recommend them. They are, of course, a very different angle than those mentioned above.

Re: Philosophical Commentaries

The Fathers are always a good place to start for commentaries on the scriptures.
