For a good translation, start here:
For Torah with commentary by Rashi (one of the greatest Torah scholars in Judaism):
For more commentaries, try these:
http://www.aish.com/torahPortion/pArchive_hp.asp (Orthodox Jewish perspective)
http://www.chabad.org/parshah/otherparshas_cdo/aid... (Chassidic Jewish perspective)
http://www.biu.ac.il/JH/Parasha/eng/ (from Bar-Ilan University - Israel)
http://www.jtsa.edu/Conservative_Judaism/JTS_Torah... (Conservative Jewish perspective)
http://urj.org/torah/ (Reform Jewish perspective - go to archives at middle right)
http://www.jrf.org/recon-dt (Reconstructionist perspective)
Most of these are divided by the weekly Torah portion (by Hebrew name). Each Torah portion corresponds to a chapter or reading from the Prophets, which will also be included in the commentary.
For a full-on Tanach with commentary from beginning to end, you will have to buy one - I don't know of anything online that's comprehensive, as there is simply too much material. But once you know the Hebrew name for the book of the Tanach you are interested in, most of the sites I linked will also have commentary available if you do a specific search.

Jews don't do "Old Testament." We have the Tanakh (Torah, Prophets, and Writings), which the Christians ripped off to make their "old" testament. There's nothing "old" about our testament, except your point of view.
If you want to know about Jewish thinking - all I can say is go to a synagogue and listen to the rabbi; Jewish belief and philosophy is a life's work, and it doesn't boil down to a snippet or a sound-bite.
