House, Paul R. Isaiah: A Mentor Commentary. 2 Vols. Ment. Mentor, 2019.
AndrewKlein46 AndrewKlein46 December 1, 2022
Lacks some critical and technical data, but still has solid exegesis. If you're looking for something pastoral and devotional for Isaiah, this isn't a bad stop!
Greenberg, Moshe. Ezekiel 1–20. AYB. Yale University Press, 1983.

One of my first Biblical Studies classes during my undergraduate work was a class on Ezekiel. I did not have very good guidance on how to find a good commentary for my final research paper. I had slogged through many very poor commentaries that had made me exhausted; I was close to giving up. That was until I got to Moshe Greenberg's work. It was reinvigorating. Daniel Block's commentary is a close second, but the expertise Greenberg displays as well as his reverence for the text makes this two volume work the best on Ezekiel, even despite the fact that it does not cover all 48 chapters.

Andersen, Francis I.; Freedman, David Noel. Amos. AYB. Yale University Press, 1989.

While I understand the complaints of many who find this commentary to be too long, my love for Amos and my love for Andersen and Freedman's work easily makes this commentary one of my all time favorites! Although, the warnings are true: This commentary is for extensive research only, and it is probably not suitable for casual reading.
Eidevall, Göran. Amos. AYB. Yale University Press, 2017.

Eidevall's goal of leaving behind the person of Amos in order to focus on the book of Amos is admirable; however, his insistence on redaction criticism makes it so that the canonical book of Amos is hardly ever in focus. His focus on his proposed layers of redaction seem to be more important to him than actual exegesis of the current text. There is sound commentary to be found in here, it is just hidden within his overwhelming criticism.
