Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.
This work by Nancy L. deClaissé-Walford, Rolf Jacobson, and Beth Tanner is the most complete and detailed one-volume commentary available on the Psalms. Significantly, the volume reflects the combined insights of three superior (younger) biblical scholars.
DeClaissé-Walford, Jacobson, and Tanner offer a succinct introduction to the Psalter, a new translation of all the psalms that takes special account of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and individual entries on each psalm unit. Throughout the book they draw on state-of-the-art research on the canonical shape and shaping of the Psalter and evidence a nuanced attention to the poetic nature of the psalms.

Hit or miss. Given that there are three authors who divvy up the psalms (their names come at the end of the section that they wrote), there is much unevenness among the three in style, depth of scholarship, canonical awareness, and (frankly) demonstrated knowledge of Hebrew. So far I have used this volume mostly for counterpoints, to show what can go wrong in biblical scholarship.
