- Sonic Light | Dr. Constable began publishing his expository Bible study notes on Sonic Light for his students at Dallas Theological Seminary. Not only are these notes incredible, but this is a completely free resource conveniently available online in PDF format. His notes provide helpful overviews over every book of the Bible, as well as chapter and verse breakdown and insight.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible | Originally published in 1706, Matthew Henry's commentary provides an exhaustive look at every verse in the Bible and can be accessed for free online. He is a keen observer and does an excellent job of pointing out what's there in the text and surrounding context.

In addition to the verse by verse exposition, there are maps, charts, and diagrams to help you grasp the meanings of any biblical text you are studying.
