- Commentaries I Would Not Do Without by R. Hansen
Very good at following the theological implications of the text and intention of the narrator. He does not comment on every text and does not include a lot of background, but I would still say this is perhaps the best commentary on 2 Samuel. His comments can lead one to think of implications for today. Especially good at tying in the stories to the larger narrative of Scripture Though for in depth study you might was another commentary for specific textual comments and background info.
