    I am desiring to do a study of the 10 Commandments. I have Thomas Watson, and Kevin DeYoung's The Ten Commandments.

    I'd like to get suggestions for 2 more books that would be of greatest value here. One older and one newer author would be nice (as I have above) but not necessary.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’m just gonna go ahead and do it...

    Institutes of Biblical Law by R. J. Rushdoony.

    A Brakel on the commandments. I cannot remember which volume.

    Another work I have referenced often is John Frame's Doctrine of the Christian Life. He has a lengthy section expositing the Ten Commandments.

    Thomas Boston or James Durham.

    J.G. Vos for a more modern one (in his exposition of the Larger Catechism).

    Calvin's Institutes and sermons on the Commandments.
    I'll check my library for some more recommendations when I get home from work.

    Rushdoony may be biting off a little more than I can chew at this time, but Á Brakel and Durham look good.

    I forgot to look in the Institutes. Duh.
    John Gill didn't have much, which surprised me a little.

    I second this. It is excellent.

    There's Patrick Fairbairn's The Revelation of Law in Scripture, which was re-issued a few years back. More than an exposition of the 10 Commandments, though.

    Rushdoony was a theonomist, so he's really going to be into the Ten Commandments. Heh.
