In case you haven't noticed, The Longer Commentary of R. David Kimhi on the First Book of the Psalms is hidden away in the Classic Commentaries and Studies on the Psalms Upgrade (30 vols.).

I haven't had time to read it myself yet, but this looks interesting: David Kimchi's response to Christianity in his Psalm commentary.

(Btw, it would be nice to have Jewish commentaries bundled together, instead of hidden away one by one in these huge Classic Commentaries bundles.)

Thank you. I would have missed this.

Quite a few names in this collection...Berry, Bush, Barnes, Bulfinch are all familiar names, and most of all, there's Juan de Valdés, the Colombian coffee guy!! Yes

Dawidh Qimḥi's commentaries are of great value, though my wife is found of mispronouncing his name as the traditional Korean fermented side dish... yes, she actually calls him David Kimchi.

fgh:

I hadn't noticed, and it really is hidden - Rabbi Kimchi (note the misspelling in the title) isn't even listed as one of the authors on the product page!

There are 3 spellings used for Radak (a Jewish acronym for Rabbi David Kimchi) in this thread and a case could be made that none of them are wrong, although there is less justification for using a q to begin his name. An h with a dot underneath is used interchangeably with as 'ch' to represent the hebrew letter chet or ḥ.

Still, none of the spellings makes it into the author list on the product page.

Indeed. I suspect that Wikipedia may be the reason for this. Rather than reproducing the ḥ, Wikipedia incorrectly uses a simple h. That is the transliteration of an entirely separate Hebrew letter.

The product page still has not been fixed.
