Since some of my favorite commentary series do not include the Old Testament, I will fudge and include 4 sets:

  1. New International Commentary on the New Testament/Old Testament (NICNT/NICOT)
  2. New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC)
  3. Pillar New Testament Commentary (PNTC)
  4. Word Biblical Commentaries (WBC)

  1. ICC (2 Cor volume 1 chapters 1-7 by Thrall definately ******. I have another volume also)
  2. Believer's Church Bible Commentary (the volumes I have: ******. Anabaptist)
  3. Hermeneia (well some of the volumes I give *****. This set has many happy surprises, good overall quality, covers several such works that hardly any other set covers, and it's critical)

To discuss commentaries, go to: Practical Commentary on Scripture
I'm probably going to purchase more Hermeneia and Believer's Church Bible volumes, it may be a while from now though.

Aply!

My OCD makes it hard to answer this question, but I would say:

1.  NICOT/NT (general)

2.  NIVAC or Wright's For Everyone (application)

3.  Hermeneia (critical)

I only cheated once.
