About The e-Sword Edition
Dr. Dave (www.doctordavet.com) and his team painstakingly created e-Sword Topic files of The Expositor's Bible (one topic file per volume). BibleSupport.com converted the 49 topic files into a single commentary for easier reference. The end result is a 50 megabyte commentary file with thousands of pages of reference material.

This is not a perfect project because not every volume fit neatly into a book, chapter, or verse commentary. The vast majority of the text did fit acceptably but several volumes like 1 and 2 Chronicles and Luke did not naturally conform to an e-Sword style book, chapter, or verse commentary. In cases such as Luke, BibleSupport.com read each chapter that did not have a scripture label and noted the scriptures the chapter referenced. We then applied the verse references to the commentary. Although this was a sometimes subjective process, for Luke, this seems to have worked well. For 1 and 2 Chronicles, the process was less than perfect.

Nevertheless, we believe that we should not "throw out the baby with the bath water". It's better to have a commentary with most of the text useful and a few volumes that don't fit perfectly than to have no commentary at all! We're proud of the result and thank Dr. Dave's team for making the original topic files, without which this project would not have happened.

We urge you to check the e-Sword Book Comments for more information on certain sections because the Book Comments contain introductory information originally found in the EB volumes. A few Book Comments contain information about the Bible book as a whole (not necessarily introductory information). We also employed Chapter Comments on rare occasion, mostly in Deuteronomy.

About The Expositor's Bible
The Expositor's Bible is one of the most-recognized standards of expository commentaries. It was written by twenty-nine eminent scholars of the day who were also full-time preachers. These writers also represent every important branch of Protestantism. The Expositor's Bible may thus be regarded as an inter-denominational exposition. It conclusively demonstrates the hearty agreement of all thoughtful persons on the profound realities and essentials of the Christian Faith. It shows how this Faith is to be preached with the conviction and persuasiveness which its opulent gospel justly merits.

This notable work was conceived and carried out by that genius among editors, Sir William Robertson Nicoll, C.H., D.D., LL.D. He had an exceptional knowledge of religious and literary, of theological and philosophical, thought. He understood what were the most urgent needs of the church as to spiritual enlightenment, for the better exercise of the Church's mission in advancing the Kingdom of Christ to earth's remotest bounds.

Right here we are met with the welcome aid of The Expositor's Bible. It must be acknowledged that a company of writers of the same caliber and qualifications could hardly be brought together at the present day. Both clergy and laity are here helped to understand the Scriptures as 'profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness.'
The Bible continues to occupy its place of finality as the supreme Authority on Religion and Morals. This is the basis on which The Expositor's Bible was written.

Some of the prominent authors include:
Alexander MacLaren D.D.
Marcus Dods D.D.
George Gillanders Findlay B.A.
Frederic W. Farrar D.D.
Handley Carr Glyn Moule M.A. D.D.
George Adam Smith D.D.

About the Editor
Sir William Robertson Nicoll was born in Lumsden, Aberdeenshire. He was educated at the University of Aberdeen and graduated in 1870. He studied for the ministry at the Free Church Divinity Hall there until 1874, when he was ordained minister of the Free Church at Dufftown, Banffshire. In 1885 Nicoll was forced to retire from pastoral ministry after an attack of typhoid had badly damaged his lung. In 1886 he moved south to London and began his editorship of The Expositor (1885) and the British Weekly (1886), posts which he held for the rest of his life. He made the British Weekly widely influential, published several religious and secular books, was knighted in 1909, and was made a companion of honor (a prestigious order) two years before his death 1923.

Nicoll was a prolific editor of expository works and left behind a literary legacy that has placed all preachers in his debt. This scholar is rightly remembered for such works as the 50-volumeExpositor's Bible (1888-1905), the 12-volume The Sermon Bible (1888-1893), and the 5-volume Expositor's Greek New Testament (1897-1910), all of which he edited. But none of these surpasses in quality and utility The Expositor's Dictionary of Texts.

Thanks for this module. 

Please can some one help me, I still can't view the modules after installing the module installer.



Do I have to download every single resource or is everything in one downloadable link? If so, which one?

No you can dl all at one time


If you want it in commentary format  download the exe or zip 


if you want them in topx form download for E-sword zip


These files should be at the top of the list

Not a bad commentary set. It is too bad they do not put it into one down load like most others. 

The all in one options appear first in the list of downloads: 


  • Expositor's Bible Commentary Format.exe
  • Expositor's Bible Commentary Format.zip

Just read his commentary on exodus 20, commandments 4-6 w/ special attention given to his comments on God visiting the sins of the fathers on the children. What insight when comparing that with His mercy and love to those who serve Him! We're talking 3rd and 4th generations to thousands of generations !

Thanks Almighty God for those who work on making our way easier to reach what the important thing according to your will. Thank u Josh for your great effort...God bless you...Shalom

I hesitate to comment on commentaries, considering their ages for the most part.

And though I did download this set and understand it was compiled from many different theologians,

I would say to walk with caution.

Just a cursory check on Geneses chapter 1 & 2 reveals that the writer chooses the secular world view, rather than God's word.


Like any commentary I understand we should always put them to the same test as say our pastor.

(Acts 17:11)


Other than that, I would recommend this module to any student of scripture.
