There a plethora of helpful commentaries on the Psalms, but I have thus far found six to be the most helpful. Before getting into the list, I should note two different, but valuable resources on the Psalms. It is an outstanding resource for learning about the interpretive history of Jews and Christians on each Psalm.

Thus far, only Psalms have been published. There is not a better devotional to lead you through reading and praying the Psalter. Allen Ross has written a masterful three-volume commentary on the Psalter. He covers each Psalm in a user-friendly format that teaches the Psalms instructively. Each Psalm includes 1 a translation with footnoted text-critical and exegetical notes, 2 a discussion of the composition and possible historical context, 3 a brief exegetical summary and outline, and 4 a detailed exposition of the Psalm. Ross is keen at moving from exegesis to theological exposition. The only downside of set is the price.
Each volume is rather inexpensive, but the total adds up quickly with all three. This set would be valuable for lay people, pastors, and scholars alike. This two-volume commentary on the Psalter is more critical than Ross but full of exegetical and theological insight.
This commentary has taught me the more than the others. Kraus is very detailed. Each Psalm is 1 translated with footnoted text-critical issues 2 a discussion of the form of the Psalm—organization, structure, meter 3 possible setting and author of the Psalm 4 detailed verse by verse exegesis and 5 the purpose and thrust of the Psalm.

This last section is deeply theological and often Christological. This commentary is one of the stronger volumes in the REBC series. Thankfully, the editors of the series gave VanGemeren his own volume to work through the Psalter because he does a magnificent job. This conservative commentary is detailed, but not verbose. Each Psalm has an overview, then verse by verse exposition, followed by exegetical notes. Additionally, there theological and devotional reflections spread throughout.

If you can only purchase one commentary on the Psalms, this is the one. Volume 2 is too Christologically cautious in their exegesis. Wilson sees an important Davidic motif in the compiling and arranging of the Psalter which lends to messianic expectation built into the Psalms. The psalm commences with the celebration of the infinite glory of God. It is then declared that such is his faithfulness that he never deceives his own people, who, embracing his promises, wait with tranquil minds for their salvation amidst all the tempests and agitations of the world.
