    Are there puritan commentaries on the book of Proverbs, preferably devotional ones?
    I'm not looking for a critical or exegetical commentary, but a devotional one.

    Any recomendations are welcome.

    The Banner commentary by Charles Bridges.

    I second both of these. Spurgeon said of Bridges commntary "The best work on the Proverbs. The Scriptural method of exposition so well carried out by Bridges renders all his writings very suggestive to ministers. While explaining' the passage in hand, he sets other portions of the word in new lights"

    Regarding Matthew Henry, use his full commentary, not the abridged one.

    Quibbling on categories only; Bridges is historically only Puritanesque (1796-1869).
