Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the "Prince of Preachers," composed and polished The Treasury of David over the span of nearly half his ministry. This incomparable commentary and omnibus on the Psalms has been prized by Christians ever since.

Spurgeon's own commentary on every verse of the Psalms is extremely insightful, and by itself it would have been rich enough for posterity. But there's much more in The Treasury of David. You'll find a wealth of illuminating extracts and quotes from hundreds of commentators—contemporaries of Spurgeon as well as the great Puritan expositors of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Preachers and teachers will appreciate the homiletical hints on almost every verse, concise sermon outlines, and provocative seed thoughts. Useful bibliographies and an index of authors offer more practical help.

Whether you're teaching on the Psalms, studying them for personal devotions, or simply intrigued by the writings of Spurgeon, you'll enjoy this splendid classic.

I have become a collector of commentaries ever since my seminary days in the 1990s. As such, I am only going to recommend the best overall commentary for each book of the Bible on this site. For Psalms, for the preacher/teacher, I still think the go-to commentary is Spurgeon's contribution. It is not the easiest to navigate at times, it can be a bit dated, and at least in my three volume set the print is a bit smaller than I would like, but it is remarkably rich in the scope of its insights. I have not found any other commentaries on Psalms that rival it. (C. Hassell Bullock's two volumes in the "Teach the Text" series will prove helpful for illustrating and applying the Psalms, too).

A classic! Well written although sometimes heavy. The hints for preachers are really interesting and to present quotes from other commentators is also insightful.

This is an absolute classic. Spurgeon writes beautifully. Often just his introduction to a particular Psalm will give a wealth of insight to the preacher. He also quotes extensively from classic Calvinist and Lutheran commentators which can be interesting and helpful. The Treasury of David is a delight to read devotionally, too. Spurgeon was called the Prince of Preachers for a reason; if he preached the way he wrote, then he was always eloquent and informative and getting to the heart of every issue.
