Treasure trove of historical Bible commentaries

These links may be a repeat. If so, they bear repeating. Using commentaries from past centuries can help us see the Bible without the contemporary lenses that bias our outlook. Here are some of the best free, online commentaries from past centuries. You may have to scroll down or search for the author's name on some of these pages. Again, it should be worth the effort.
