Commentaries usually feature verse by verse analysis.  It is often helpful to consult a number of commentaries on the Biblical book that you are studying as they  have different aspects of the text that they emphasize such as historical, cultural, literary etc.  Many commentaries while scholarly are also directed towards a Christian audience.
 Commentaries can be found by doing a subject search in TRIPOD for "Bible  [name of the book you are researching] commentaries."
