ii THB APOOBYFHAL BOOKS. 

JUDITH. 

This book is also a romance. It is doubtful whether the Greek is a translation or not. 
The date of the writing of the book is whollj uncertain. It contains such chronological state- 
ments as are quite inconsistent with its being a real history. 

ADDITIONS TO ESTHEE. 

The Apocryphal books previously noticed stand distinct and separate ; but here the case is 
different. It is as though the Greek translation of the real Ezra had not come down to us, 
and we only had the Apocryphal Esdras with all its interpolations. The book of Esther is in 
such a state in Greek that it is impossible to separate the text of the real book without breaking 
and dividing sentences. The old Latin version which was current before the time of Jerome 
being made from the Greek, of course comprised the interpolations : that Father rejected them 
unceremoniously, and they have henceforth stood by themselves in the Yulgate at the end of 
the book. The division of the book into modem chapters has only increased the confusion ; 
for thus, in the Yulgate and in the English Apocrypha, these interpolations stand, separated 
from the places where they had been introduced, as if they were something consecutive. It is 
remarkable that the Coimcil of Trent, which canonised the additions, did not restore them to the 
places in which they would have been (as they are in the Greek) at least intelligible. 

WISDOM OF SOLOMON. 

This book appears to have been written by an Alexandrian Jew, who personates Solomon, 
and yet describes the nation of Israel in circumstances wholly unlike any that could apply to 
the time of that king. Probably no fraud was intended, but simply a fictitious clothing was 
given to the thoughts. This book has linguistic value as showing the Hebraic character of 
Hellenistic Greek, even when employed in original composition. It is also a proof of the early 
use made of the Septuagint version, frt)m which there are citations. 

ECCLESIASTICUS, 

OR THE WISDOM OF JESUS THE SON OF SIBACH. 

This book was translated into Greek from the Hebrew original by the grandson of the 
author (as is supposed), about the year 130 b.c. The Hebrew has long been lost 

BAEUCH. 

It is considered by many that this book is a translation from a Hebrew or Chaldee original. 
It professes to be from the pen of Bamch, the companion of Jeremiah, but is unquestionably 
one of the forged prophecies which have made their appearance at various ages. Jerome rejects 
the book unceremoniously ; and it is probable that none would have received it as authentic 
Scripture^ had it not been that it was appended to tlie Greek copies of Jei*emiaL 



TEX APOOSrEHAL B00E8. iU 

ADDITIONS TO DANIEL: 

BUBANMA, THE BONO OF THE THBEE CHILDREN, AND BEL AND THE DRAGON. 
These three fablu, as they are rightlj tenned by Jei-ome, probably originated in Greek: 
they were affixed to the canonical Daniel in apite of all incongruities, and It is remarkabie that 
Bome of the early objectionB to tike book of Daniel vere founded entirely on theae Apocryphal 
accretiona. Since they vere canonised by the Council of Trent, some Bomish authorities hare 
tried, by the supposition of allegory or parable, to avoid Uie insuperable difSoulUes. 

MACCABEES. 

Illiere are four books of Maccabees extant in Greek, of irhich, hoverer, tho Church of 
RonLe receives only the fint two as canonical 

The,;£r«( book of Maccabees is an interesting history, originally written in Hebrew, which 
is no longer extant, but early translated into Greek as we now have it. It contains the best 
bistoiy that we possesa of the Maocabean times. 

The teeond book of Maccabees is an abridgment of a work written by Jasen of Cyrene : the 
Greek text is probably the original. The author expreasly repudiates the idea of his being 
inspired ; kence it is wonderful that the Tridentine Fathers should have elevated th« book to 
the place of authoritative Scripture. 

The third book of Maccabees is a history with fictitious embelliahments, in order of timo 
prior to the other books which bear the name of Maccabees. It ia received by the Greek 
Church, but not by the Latin. The author and the age are alike unknown. 

The/our(A book of Maccabees is by some suppoaed to have been written by Josephns; 
Greek is the original language. This book was omitted in the Boman edition, and hence some 
have supposed that it was lejected in the Vatican MS.; that Codex, however, does not contain 
any of the books of Maccabees : why, therefore, the editors supplied tAree books and not all the 
four does not appear. 

The third and fourth booka of Maccabees have been translated for this edition of tlie 
Apocrypha. 

These booka called Apociypha, though destitute of all authority, have much value in 
connection with the Hellenistic phraseology of the New Teatament. The Septuagint version 
had been formed on a Hebraic mould, so that Hebraisms were stu% to manifest themselves ; but 
in those booka of the Apocrypha which were originally written in Greek, we find just the same 
Hebrew cast of tliought and expression. Thua the Helleniatio phraseology of the New Teata- 
inent was not a new thing, even when applied to original compoeition.

THE APOCRYPHAL BOOKS. 



Ths AJezandrion Jctb posseaaed a sacred literature in the Septimginb tranalation, and wherd 
other vorks of the game national character «ere either written in Qreek or traoElated from the 
Hebrew, these also were appended to the sacred books which they before possessed. But we 
loam plunly from Josephus that they were not regarded as having any canonical anthori^. 
The early Christiana received them as part of the sacred literature then extant in Greek, and 
certaia of them ignorantly deemed that they posaeaged some authority ; while others, like 
Melito, exerrased a sound discretion in enquiring what books the Jews held as an authoritative 
and divine Scripture. 

The opinions of Christian writers varied much on the subject : Jerome plainly termed them 
Apocrypha, and often spoke of them very contemptuously : in tie Church of Rome, however, 
they gradually obtained a high standing, until at length the Council of Trent pi'esuined to 
anathematise any one who would not receive the greater part of them as authoritative Scripture. 
Mauy of the Somish Church endeavour to soft«n the force of this decree, and they thus call 
these books Deutei'o-Canonical ; it is, however, clear that the council had no thought of applying 
the term canonical to these writings in any secondary sense, and that they exalted the legend of 
Tobit and ihe/abla (so termed by Jerome) of Bel and the Dragon to as hi^ an authority as 
Muses and the Prophets. 

ESDBAS. 
The book called in the English Apocrypha the first book of Esdras, and in the Latin 
Vulgate the third book of Esdras (the canonical Ezra and Nehemiah being the fii-st and second), 
is commonly termed in the Septuagint the Jirtl book of Esdras, the canonical Ezra being the 
tecond. This book is aimply the canonical Ezra interpreted in a remarkable manner. The 
Church of Borne even does not receive this book as Holy Scripture, any more than it does the 
fourth (in the English Bible the itamd) book of Esdras : this latter does not exist any longer 
in Qreek. 

TOBIT. 
This book is a kind of romance, abounding in anachronism ; it has been transmitted in 
various forms, all of which are considered to have sprung from a Ohaldee original : this may 
have been moulded differently by different copyists. The writer is supposed te have lived from 
200 to ISO KC The book exhibits the doctrinal system then pt«v«l«D.\. wianivigji. "^^ '^is«(^

These three /ablet, aa they are rightly termed by Jerome, probably originated in Greek: 
lliey Tere affixed to the canonical Daniel in spite of all incongruities, and it is remarkable that 
some of the early objections to the book of Daniel were founded entirely on these Apocryphal 
accretions. Since they were canonised by the Council of Trent, some Bomish authorities hare

There are four books of Maccabees extant in Greek, of which, however, the Church of 
Home receives only the first two aa canonical 

Ihefirtl book of Maccabees is an interesting history, originally written in Hebrew, which

Thelersas, Charaathalan leading them, and 
Aalar^ '^they roidd not shew their families

found : the sons of Obaia, the sons of 
Acbos, the sons of Jaddiis, who married 
Augia one of the daughters of Phaeseldsus,

that they should not be partakers of the

the Levites and the people in Jerusalem, 
and in the country, the singers also and the 
porters ; and all Israel in their villages. 

■*^ But when the seventh month was at 
hand, and when the children of Israel were 
every man in his own place, they came 
altogether with one consent into the open 
place of the first gate which is toward the 
east. ^^Then stood up Jesus the son of 
Joscdec, and his brethren the priests, and 
Zorobabel the son of Salathiel, and his 
brethren, and made ready the altar of the

of thine own kindred? wherefore hear me, 
O mjr brother ; for she shall be given thee 
to wife; and make thou no reckoning of the 
evil spirit ; for this same night shall she be 
given thee in marriage. **And when thou 
shalt come into the marriage chamber, thou 
shalt take the ashes of perfume, and shalt 
lajr upon them some of the heart and liver 
of the fish, and shalt make a smoke with it : 
^''and the devil shall smell it, and flee away, 
and never come again an:^ more: but when 
thou shalt come to her, rise up both of you, 
and pray to God which is merciful, who will 
have pity on you, and save you : fear not, 
for she is appointed unto thee from the 
beginning; and thou shalt preserve her. 
ana she shall go with thee. Moreover 1 
suppose that she shall bear thee children. 
Now when Tobias had heard these things, 
he loved her, and his heart was effectually 
joined to her. And he came to Ecbatane. 

And he came to the liouse of Baguel: 
and Sara met him: and saluted him, and 
he them : and she brought them into the 
house. 'Then said Raguel to Edna his 
wife, How like is this young man to Tobit 
my cousin ! 

'And Raguel asked them. From whence 
are ye. brethren ? To whom they said, We 
are of the sons of Nephthali, which are 
captives in Nineve. * Then he said to them, 
D9 ye know Tobit oiir kinsman ? And they 
said. We know him. Then said he. Is he in 
good health ? * And they said, He is both 
alive, and in good health : and Tobias said. 
He is my father. • Then Raguel leaped up, 
and kissed him, and wept, 'and blessed him, 
and said unto him. Thou art the son. of an 
honest and good man. But when he had 
heard that Tobit was blind, he was sorrow, 
ful, and wept 

^ And likewise Edna his wife and Sara his 
daughter wept. Moreover they entertained 
them cheerfully; and after that they had 
killed a ram 01 the flock, they set store of 
meat on the table. Then said Tobias to 
Raphael. Brother Azarias, speak of those 
thinffs 01 which thou didst talk in the way, 
and let this business be dispatched. 

*So he communicated the matter with 
Raguel: and Raguel said to Tobias, Eat 
ana drink, and make merry: **^for it is 
meet that thou shouldest marry my daugh- 
ter : nevertheless I will declare unto thee 
the truth. '* I have given mj daughter in 
marriage to seven men, who died that night 
they came in unto her : nevertheless for the 
present be merry. But Tobias said, I will 
eat notliing here, till we agree and swear 
one to anoUier. ^'And Raguel said. Then 
take her from henceforth according to the 
manner, for thou art her cousin, and she 
is thine, and the merciful God give you 
good success in all things. 

^ Then he called liis daughter Sara, and 
she came to her father, and he took her by 
the hand, and gave lier to be wife to Tobias, 
saying. Behold, take her after the law 01 
Moses, and lead her away to thy father. 
And he blessed them; ^^and called Edna 
his wife, and took paper, and did write an 
instrument qf covenants, and sealed it.

brought thee unto us, and blemd bt thy

the secret of a king, but that it was honour- 
able to reveal the works of God. "Now 
therefore, when thou didst pray, and Sara 
thy daughter in law, I did bring the remem- 
brance of your prayers before the Holv 
One : and when thou didst bury the dead, 
I was with thee likewise. '^And when 
thou didst not delay to rise up, and leave 
thy dinner, to go and cover the dead, thy 
good deed was not hid from me : but I was 
with thee. **And now God hath sent me 
tp heal tliee and Sara thv daughter in law. 
** I am Raphael, one of the seven holy 
angels, which present the prayers of the 
saints, and wliich go in and out before the 
glory of the Holy One. 

^"Then they were both troubled, and fell 
upon their faces: for they feared. ^But 
he said unto them. Fear not, for it shall go 
well with you ; praise God therefore. ** For 
not of any favour of mine, but by the will 
ofourGoQ I came; wherefore praise him 
for ever. ^ All these days I did appear 
unto you ; but I did neither eat nor drink, 
but ye did see a vision. * Now therefore 
give God thanks : for I go up to him that 
sent me; but write all tilings which are 
done in a book. ^^And when they arose, 
they saw him no more. ^ Then they con- 
fessed the great and wonderful works of 
God, and how the angel of the Lord had 
appeared unto them. 

Then Tobit wrote a prayer of rejoicing, 
and said. 

Blessed be God that liveth for ever, and 
blessed be his kingdom. ^ For he doth 
scourge, and hath mercy: he leadeth down 
to helU and bringeth up again : neither is 
there any that can avoid his hand. ^C!on- 
foss him before tlie Gentiles, ye children of 
Israel: for he hath scattered us amonff 
them. ^ There declare his fatness, and 
extol him before all the living ijat he is 
our Lord, and he is the God our leather for 
ever. ^ And he will scourge us for our ini- 
quities, and will have mercy again, and will 
gather us out of all nations, among whom 
ne hath scattered us. 

• If ye turn to him with your whole heart, 
and with your whole mind, and deal upright- 
ly before him^ then will he turn unto you, 
and will not hide his face from you. There- 
fore see what he will do with you, and con- 
fess him with ^our whole mouth, and praise 
the Lord of might, and extol the everlasting 
King. In the land of my captivity do I 
praise him, and declare his might and ma- 
jesty to a sinful nation. O ye sinners, turn 
and do justice before him : who can tell if 
he will accept you, and have mercy on you ? 

7 1 will extol mv God, and my soul shall 
praise the King 01 heaven, and shall rejoice 
in his greatness. * Let all men speak, and 
let all praise him for hU righteousness. 

•O Jerusalem, the holy city, he will scourge 
thee for thy children's works, and will have 
mercy again on the sons of the righteous, 
w Give praise to the Lord, /or he is good : 
and praise the everlasting King, that his ta-

them that poBsess ub. '° For our senitudo 
shall not be directed to favour; but the 
Lord our God ahall turn it to dishonour. 

•• Now therefore, O brethren, let us shew 
nn einniple to our brethren, because liieir 
liearta depend upon us, and the sonctuary, 
nod tbe bouse, aud the altar, rest upon ua. 

^ Moreoter let ns give thanks lo the

ho did toAbniharo.andhowhe tried Isaac, 
and what happened to Jacob in Mesopo-

Laban liis mother's brother. ''For he hath 
not tried us ill the fire, as lie did thoin, 
for the eiaminstion of their hearts, neitlier 
Imth he taken Tenueaniw an us: hut the 
Lord doth scourge them that come near 
unto bim, to admonish Ihem. 

^ Then said Oiias to her, All that thou 
hast spoken hast thou spoken with a good 
heart, and there is none that may gainsar 
Ihj worda "For this is not the first day 
wbernin th; wisdom is manifested; but 
from the beginning of thy days all the peo- 
ple have known thy understanding, becauso 
DiB disposition of tliine heart is good. "But 
the people wpro yery thirsty, and compelled 
119 to do unto them as we haie spoken, and 
to bring an oath upon aurselres. which we 
will not break. "Iherefore now pray thou 
for us, because thou art a godly woman, 
and the Lord will send ua rain lo fill our 
cisterns, and we shall faint no more. 

"Then Baid Judith unto them. Hear me, 
and I will do a thing, which sliall go 
throughout all omerstiona to the children 
of our notion. '^ Ye shall aland this night 
in the fiate, and I will go forth with my 
waitingwoman : and nitlijn the dayi that 
ye hate promised to deliver tbe city to our 

hand. " But enquire not ye of mine act: 
for I will not declare it unto you, till the 
things be fin ia bed that I do. 

^ Then said Otiaa and the princes unto

Judith XVI. 15—25. 

and they were mode : thou didst send forth 
thy spirit, and it created tliem, and there 
is none that can resist thy Toice. '^ For the 
mountains shall be moved from their foun. 
dations with the waters* the rocks shall 
melt as wax at thy presence : yet thou art 
merciful to them that fear thee. ^ For all 
sacrifice is too little for a sweet savour unto 
thee, and all the fat is not sufficient for thy 
burnt oficring: but he that feareth the 
Lord is great at all times. 

i« Woe to the nations that rise up aninst 
my kindred ! the Lord Almighty will take 
vengeance of them in the day of judgment, 
in putting fire and worms m their flesh; 
and they shall feel them, and weep for ever. 

^ Now as soon as they entered into Je- 
rusalem, they worshipped the Lord; and 
as soon as the people were purified^ they 
offered their burnt ofierings, and their free 
ofibrings, and their gifts. 

» Judith also dedicated all the stuff of 
Holofemes. which the people had given her, 
and gave the canopy which she had taken 
out of his bedchiunber, for a gift imto 
God. 

^So the people continued feasting in 
Jerusalem before the sanctuary for the 
space of three months, and Judith remained 
with them. 

^2* After this time every one returned to 
his own inheritance, and Judith went to 
Bethulia, and remained in her own posses- 
sion, and was in her time honourable in all 
the country. ^ And many desired her, but 
none knew her all the days of her life, after 
that Manasses her husband was dead, and 
was gathered to bis people. 

^ But she increased more and more in 
lionour, and waxed old in her husband's 
house, being an hundred and five years old, 
and made her maid free; so she died in 
Bethulia : and they buried her in the cave 
of her husband Manasses. ^ And the house 
of Israel lamented her seven days: and 
before she died, she did distribute her goods 
to all them that were nearest of kindred to 
Manasses her husband, and to them that 
were the nearest of her kindred. ^And 
there was none that made the children of 
Israel any more afraid in the days of Judith, 
nor a long time after her death.

the eternal proTidenoe. ^ For while they supposed 
to lie hid in their secret sins, they were scattered 
under a dark Teil of forsetfulness, being horribly 
astonished, and troubled with [strange] appari- 
tions. ^ For neither might the comer that neld 
them keep them from fear: but noises fas of 
waters] falling down sounded about them, and 
sad yisions appeared unto them with heavy coun- 
tenances. 

* No power of the fire might gire them lisht : 
neither could the bright flames of the stars endure 
to lighten that horrible nigfht ^Only there ap- 
peared unto them a fire kindled of itself, yery 
dreadful : for beins; much terrified, they thought 
the things which they saw to be worse than the 
sight they saw not. 'As for the illusions of art 
magic, they were put down, and their vaunting 
in wisdom was reproved with disgrace. ^For they, 
that promised to drive awav terrors and troubles 
from a sick soul, were sick themselves of fear, 
worthy to be laughed at. 

*For though no terrible thing did fear them : 
vet being scared with beasts that passed by, ana 
hissing of serpents, '^ they died for fear, denying 
that they saw the air, which could of no side oe 
avoided. 

" For wickedness, condemned by her own wit- 
ness, is very timorous, and being pressed with 
conscience, always forecasteth grievous things. 
'^ For fear is nothing else but a betraying of the 
succours which reason ofiereth. ^And the ex- 
pectation from within, being less, counteth the 
ignorance more than the cause which bringeth the 
torment. ^* But they sleeping the same sleep that 
night, which was indeed intolerable, and which 
came upon them out of the bottoms of inevitable 
hell, ** were partly vexed with monstrous appari- 
tions, and partly fainted, their heart failing them : 
for a sudden fear, and not looked for. came upon 
them. '^ So then whosoever there fell down was 
straitly kept, shut up in a prison without iron 
bars. '^ For whether he were husbandman, or 
shepherd, or a labourer in the field, he was over- 
taken, and endured that necessity, wliicb could 
not be avoided : for they were all bound with one 
chain of darkness. 

** Whether it were a whistling wind, or a melo- 
dious noise of birds among the spreading branches, 
or a pleasing ftdl of water running violently, ^' or a 
terrible sound of stones cast down, or a running 
that could not be seen of skipping beasts, or a 
roaring voice of most savage wild beasts, or a 
rebounding echo from the hollow mountains: 
these things made them to swoon for fear. * For 
the whole world shined with dear light, and none 
were hindered in their labour: 2»over them only 
was spread a heavv night, an imag[e of that dark- 
ness which should afterward receive them : but 
yet were they unto themselves more grievous than 
the darkness. 

Nevertheless thy saints had a very great light* 
whose voice they hearing, and not seeing their 
shape, because they also had not sufiered the same 
things, they counted them happy. * But for that 
they did not hurt them tu>io, of whom they had 
been wronged before, they thanked them, and be- 
sought them pardon for that they had been 
enemies. '^Instead whereof thou gavest them a 
burning pillar of fire, both to be a guide of the 
unknown journey, and a harmless sun to enter- 
tain them honourably. < For they were wQrih?x ^

WliDOK XIX. 1—22; 

Ai for tlie ungodly, wrath cams upon Uiem 
williont inercy unto the end : for be knew before 
what they would do; 'how thnt hsring giren 
them leare lo depart, and lent them haatiiy ftwar, 
thej would repent and puriue them. ' For whilit 
they were jet mourning and makii ' 

at the graves of the dead, they 

fooligb deriee, and pursued them at fugitii 
whom they had intreated to bo gone. ' For the 
destiny, whereof they were wortliy, drew them 
unto this end, and made them forget Ihs thing* 
tliat had already happened, that they might full]] 
ths puniahment whicli waa wanting to their tor- 
ment*! 'and that thy people might p« as through 
a wonderful wayj but they might Gnd a strange 
death. 

' For the whole creature io hla proper lind waa 
faahioued again anew, serving the peculiar com- 
mandmeDts that were gireir unto them, that thy 
children might be kept without hurt: 'tuaaneZy, 
a eloiid shadowing the camp; and where water 
stood before, dry land appeared; and out of the 
Bed sea a way without impediment; and out of 
the TJolent atream a green field : • through which 
sli the people went that were defended with thy 
hand, seeing thy msryelloua strange wonders. 
•For they went st large hkc horses, and leaped 
like lambs, promng thee, O Lord, who hadst do- 
lixered them. " For they were yet mindful of the 
things that were done while they aojoumed in the 
stiange land, how the ground brought forth fliea 
:„-._.j _r _...!. — J 1 .!._ _; jj^j jjp ^ 

" But aftflrward they saw a new generation of 
fowls, when, being led with their appetite, tliey 
asked delicate meats. " For quaila came up unto 
tJiem from the sea for their contentment, "And 
puniahmenta came upon the sinnera not without 
JbrmBr signi by the force of thunders : for they 
luBered justly according to their own wiekedneaa, 
iuBOmucli as they used a more hard and hateful 
behaviour toward strangers. " For the Sodomilit 
did not reccire those, whom (he)f knew not when 
'J came: but these brought friends into bond- 
I, that had weQ deeerred of them. "And not 



them, whom they had Teceivod with feastiuRs, and 
were already made partakers of the sacoe laws 
with tbem. " Therefore even with blindness were 
these stricken, as those were at the doora of the 
righteous man: when, being compassed about 
with hotrlble great darkneaa, erery one sought the 
passage of his own doors. 



by a kind of harmony, like aa in a paaltery nc 
change the name of the tune, and yet are alw 
aounda : which may well be perceired by the sight 
of the things that have been done. " For earthly 
things were turned into watery, and the thinga, 
that before swam in the wafer, now went upon 
the ground. " The fire bad power in (he water, 
forgetting his OWQ virtue: and the water ibrgit 
his own quenching nature, ^'On the otber side, 
the Bamea wasted not the flnh of the corruptible 
iJTing thinga. though they walked therein ; neilhec 
inelt«l they the icy kind of heavenly meat, that 
waa of nature apt to melt, '^ For in all thinn, 
O Lord, thou didat magnify thy people,aiid glorify 
tbem, neither didst thou lightly reianl them: hut. 
didat a«*iat tbem ineveri U.^DAan&'^i&Ee-

'•Talk not much with a fool, and go not to himi 
that hath no understanding: beware of him, 
lest thou hare trouble, and thou shalt never be 
defiled with his fooleries: depart from him, 
and thou shalt find rest, and nerer be disquieted 
with madness. " What is hearier than lead ? 
and what is the name thereof, but a fool? 
^ Sand, and salt, and a mass of iron, are easier 
to bear, than a man without understanding. 

*f As timber girt and bound together in a 
building cannot oe loosed with shaking: so the 
heart that is stablislied by advised counsel 
shall fear at no time. ^' A heart settled upon 
a thought of understanding is as a fair plais- 
terinii; on the wall of a gallery. ^^ Pales set on 
an high place will never stand against the 
wind : so a fearful heart in the imagination of 
a fool cannot stand against any fear. 

*' He that pricketh the eye will make tears 
to fall: and he that pricketh the heart maketh 
it to shew her knowledge, ^o Whoso casteth a 
stone at the birds frayeth them away: and 
he that upbraidcth his friend breaketh friend- 
ship. '^ Though thou drewest a sword at thy 
friend, yet despair not: for there may be a 
returning [to favour]. ^ If thou hast opened 
thy mouth against thy friend, fear not ; for 
there may be a reconciliation : except for up* 
braiding, or pride, or disclosing of secrets, or a 
treacherous wound : for for these things every 
friend will depart. 

^ Be faithful to thy neighbour in his poverty, 
that thou mayest rejoice in his prosperity : 
abide steadfast unto him in the time of his 
trouble, that thou mavest be heir with him 
in his heritage. ^ As the vapour and smoke of 
a furnace goeth before the fire ; so reviling be- 
fore blood. ^ I will not be ashamed to defend 
a friend ; neither will I hide myself from him ; 
*and if any evil happen unto me by him^ every 
one that heareth it will beware of him. ^ Who 
shall set a watch before m v mouth, and a seal 
of wisdom upon my lips, that I fall not sud- 
denly by them, aud that my tongue destroy 
me not? 

O Lord, Father and Governor of my life, 
leave me not to their counsels, and let me 
not fall by them. ^ Who will set scourges 
over my thoughts, and the discipline of wis- 
dom over mine heart? that they spare me 




before mine adversaries, and mine enemy re- 
joice over me, whose hope is far from thy 
mercy. 

* O Lord, Father and God of my life, giro 
me not a proud look. ' Turn away concu- 
piscence from me. • Let not the greediness of 
the belly nor lust of the flesh take hold of 
me; and give me not over into an impudent 
mind. 

7 Hear. O ye children, the discipline of the 
mouth : ne that keepeth it shall never be taken 
in his lips. ^ The sinner shall be left in his 
foolishness: both the evil speaker and tlie 
proud shall fall thereby. • Accustom not thy 
mouth to swearing ; neither use thyself to the 
naming of the Holy One. *o For as a servant 
that is continually beaten shall tyc^t \ai^^>i^v^Ki^^

I 

7 With all these I sought rest : and in whose 
inheritance shall I abide ? ''So the Creator of 
all things gave roe a commandment, and he 
that mode me caused my tabernacle to rest, 
and said, Let thy dwelling be in Jacob, and 
thine inheritance in Urael. ^ He created me 
from the beginning before the world, and I 
shall never faiL 

"• In the holy tabernacle I served before 
him ; and so was I established in Sion. ^^ Like- 
wise in the beloved city he gave me rest, and 
in Jerusalem was my power. '^And I took 
root in an honourable people, even in the 
portion of the Lord's inheritance. ^1 was 
exalted like a cedar in Libanus, and as a 
cypress tree upon the mountains of Hermon. 
^' I was exalted like a palm tree on the sea 
shore, and as a rose plant in Jericho, as a fair 
olive tree in a plain, and grew up as a plane 
tree. '^1 gave a sweet smell like cinnamon 
and aspalathus, and I yielded a pleasant odour 
like the best myrrh, as galbanum, and onyx, 
and sweet storax,and as the fume of frank- 
incense in the tabernacle. ^ As the turpen- 
tine tree I stretched out my branches, and my 
branches are the branches of honour and grace. 
^ As the vine brought 1 forth pleasant savour, 
and my flowers are the fruit of honour ana 
riches. ^ Come unto me, all ye that be desi- 
rous of me, and fill yourselves with my fruits. 
* For my memorial is sweeter than honey, and 
mine inheritance than the honeycomb. '-^They 
that oat me shall yet be hungry, and they that 
drink me shall yet be thirstv. ^ He that obey- 
eth me shall never be combunded, and they 
that work by me shall not do amiss. 

^ All these things are the book of the cove- 
nant of the most high God, even the law which 
Moses commanded for an heritage unto the 
congre^tions of Jacob. -^ He filleth all tilings 
with his wisdom, as Fhison and as Tigris in 
the time of the new fruits. * He maketh the 
understanding to abound like Euphrates, and 
as Jordan in the time of the harvest. ^ He 
maketh the doctrine of knowledge appear as 
the light, and as Geon in the time of vintage. 

* The first man knew her not perfectly : no 
more shall the last find her out. ^ For her 
thoughts are more then the sea, and her coun- 
sels profounder than the great deep. ^ I also 
came out as a brook from a river, and as a con- 
duit into a garden. ^* I said, I will water my 
best garden, and will water abundantly my 
garden bed: and, lo, my brook became a river, 
and my river became a sea. ^ I will yet make 
doctrine to shine as the momiug, and will send 
forth her light afar off. ^ I will yet pour out 
doctrine as prophecy, and leave it to all ages 
for ever, ^ Behold that I have not laboured 
for myself only, but for all them that seek 
wisdom. 

In three things I was beautified, and stood 
up beautiful both before God and men: the 
unity of brethren, the love of neighbours, a 
man and a wife that agree together. 

^ Three sorts of men my soul hateth, and I 
am greatly offended at their life : a poor man 
that is proud, a rich man that is a liar, and an 
old adulterer that doateth. 

' If thou hast gathered nothing in thy youth, 
how canst thou find any thing in thine age ? 

* O how comely a thing is judgment for grey 
hairs, and for ancient men to udl<^'« ^fCkX^sof^x

taketli heed to the commandment; and he 
that trusteth in liim shall fare never the 
worse. 

There shall no evil happen unto him that 
feareth the Lord; but in temptation even 
again he will deliver him. ^ A wise man hateth 
not the law; but he that is an hypocrite 
therein is as a ship in a storm. ' A man ef 
understanding trusteth in the law: and the 
law is faithful unto liim, as an oracle. ^ Pre- 
pare what to say, and so thou shalt be heard : 
and bind up instruction, and then make an- 
swer. * The lieart of the foolish is like a cart- 
wheel ; and his thoughts are like a rolling axle- 
tree. ' A stallion horse is as a mocking friend, 
lie neigheth under every one that sitteth upon 
him. 

7 Why doth one day excel another, when as 
all the light of every day in the \ear is of the 
sun? ^ iiy the knowledge of the Lord they 
were distinguished: and he altered seasons 
and feasts. ' Some of them hath he made liigh 
days, and hallowed them, and some of them 
hath he made ordinary days. 

^And all men are from the ground, and 
Adam was created of earth. "In much 
knowledge the Lord hath divided them, and 
made their ways diverse. '^Some of them 
hath he blessed and exalted, and some of them 
hath he sanctified, and set near himself: but 
some of them hath he cursed and brought low, 
and turned out of their places. ^ As the clay 
is in the potter's hand, to fashion it at his 
pleasure : so man is in the hand of him that 
made him^ to render to them as liketh him best. 
^* Good IS set against evil, and life against 
death : so is the godly aoainst the sinner, and 
the sinner against the godly. ^ So look upon 
all the works of the most Migh ; and there are 
two and two, one against another. 

"Though I was the last to wake up, yet 
I received their inheritance as from the begin- 
ning. ^ O Lord have mercy upon the people 
that is called by thy name, and upon Israel, 
whom thou liast named thy firstborn. ^ O be 
merciful unto Jerusalem, thy holy city, the 
place of thy rest. '^ Fill Sion with thine 
unspeakable oracles, and thy people with thy 
glory. ^ Give testimony unto those that thou 
hast possessed from the beginning, and raise 
up prophets that have been in thy name. ^ Ke- 
wara them that wait for thee, and lot thy 
prophets be found faithful. 

W O Lord, hear the prayer of thy servants, 
according to the blessing of Aaron over thy 
people, that all they which dwell upon the 
earth may know that thou art the Lord, the 
eternal God. " The belly devoureth all meats, 
yet is one meat better than another. ^' As the 
palate tasteth divers kinds of venison : so doth 
an heart of understanding false speeches. * A 
froward heart causeth heaviness: but a man 
of experience will recompense him. 

** A woman will receive every man. yet is one 
daughter better than another. ^ The beauty 
of a woman cheereth the countenance, and a 
man loveth nothing better.^ ^ If there be 
kindness, meekness, and comfort, in her tongue, 
then is not her husband like other men. 

^He that ^etteth a wife beginneth a posses- 
sion, a help like unto himself, and a pillar of 
rest. ^ "Wnere no hedge is, there the posses- 
sion is spoiled : and he that hath no wife will 
wander up and down mourning. * Who wilL

river Sud. * Whereupon they wept, fastea, and 
prayed before the Lord.

it to Jerusalem unto Joachim the high priest, 
the son of Chelcias, son of Salom, and to the 
priests, and to all the people which were found

of Babylon had carried away Jechonias^ and 
the princes, and the captives, and the mighty 
men, and the people of the land, from Jeru-

inhabited of deTila for a great time. 

'^O Jerusalem, look about thee toward the 
east, and behold the jov that oometh unto 
th6e from God. ^ Lo, thy sons come, whom 
thou sentest away, they come gathered together 
from the east to the west by the word of the 
Holy One, rejoicing in the glory of God. 

Put off, O Jerusalem, the garment of thy 
mourning and affliction, and put on the come- 
liness of the glory that cometh from God for 
ever. 

' Cast about thee a double garment of the 
righteousness which cometh from God; and 
set a diadem on thine head of the glory of the 
Everlasting. > For God will shew thy briffht- 
ness unto every oountrv under heaven. * For 
thy name shall he called of God for ever The 
peace of righteousness, and The glory of God's 
worship. 

* Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand on high, and 
look about toward the east, and behold thy 
children gathered from the west unto the east 
by the word of the Holy One, rejoicing in the 
remembrance of God. *For they departed 
from thee on foot, and were led away ot their 
enemies: but God bringeth them unto tliee 
exalted with glory, as children of the kingdom. 

'For God hath appointed that every high 
hill, and banks of long continuance, should be 
cast down, and vallies filled up, to make even 
the ground, that Israel may go safely in the 
glory of God. ^Moreover even the woods 
and every sweetsmelling tree shall overshadow 
Israel bv the commandment of God. 'For 
God shall lead Israel with joy in the light of 
hia glory with the mercy axid righteousness 
that cometh from him.

Epistle of Jebemy, 28 — 53. 

^ Ab for the things that are sacrificed unto 
them, their priests sell and abuse; in like 
manner their wives lay up part thereof in salt ; 
but unto the poor and impotent they giro 
nothinff of it. ^ Menstruous women and women 
in childbed eat their sacrifices : bv these things 
ye may know that they are no gods : fear them 
not. ^For how can they be oilled gods? be- 
cause women set meat before the gods of silrer, 
gold, and wood. '^ And the priesU sit in their 
temples, haying their clothes rent, and their 
heads and beards sharen, and nothing upon 
their heads. *They roar and cry before their 
gods, as men do at the feast when one is dead. 

^ llie priests also take off their sarments, and 
clothe their wives and children. ■" Whether it 
be evil that one doeth unto them, or good, 
they are not able to recompense it : they can 
neither set up a king, nor put him down. *^ In 
like manner, they can neither give riches nor 
money : though a man make a vow unto them, 
and keep it not, they will not require it. 
^ I'hey can save no man from death, neither 
deliver the weak from the mighty. ^ They can- 
not restore a blind man to his sight, nor help 
any man in his distress. '^ They can shew no 
mercy to the widow, nor do good to the father- 
less. 

* Their gods of wood, and which are overlaid 
with gold and silver, are like the stones that be 
hewn out of the mountain : they that worship 
them shall be confounded. 

^ How should a man then think and say that 
they are gods, when even the Chaldeans them- 
selves dishonour them ? *^ Who if they shall 
see one dumb that cannot speak, they bring 
him, and intreat Bel that he may speak, as 
though he were able to understand. ^Yet 
they cannot understand this themselves, and 
leave them : for they have no knowledge. 

^The women also with cords about them, 
sitting in the ways, burn bran for perfume: 
but if any of them, drawn by some that passeth 
by, lie with him, she reproacheth her fellow, 
that she was not thought as worthy as herself, 
nor her cord broken. ♦•Whatsoever is done 
among them is false: how may it then be 
thought or said that they are gods? 

♦^They are made of carpenters and gold- 
smiths: thev can be nothmg else than the 
workmen will have them to be. * And they 
themselves that made them can never continue 
lonff ; how should then the things that are 
made of them be gods. 

<' For they left lies and reproaches to them 
that come alter. ^ For when there oometh any 
war or plague upon them, the priests consult 
with themselves, where toey may be hidden 
with them. '"How then cannot men perceive 
that they be no gods, which can neither save 
themselves fix)m war. nor from plague ? *^ For 
seeing they be but or wood, and overlaid with 
silver and gold, it shall be known hereafter 
that they are false: *'and it shall manifestly 
appear to all nations and kings that they are 
no gods, but the works of men's hands, and 
that there is no work of God in them. 

*^ Who then may not know that they are no 
gods ? " For neither can they set up a king in

Thsk Azarias etood up, and prayed on this 
manner ; and opening his mouth in the midst 
of the fire said, 

'Blessed art thou^ O Lord God of onr 
fathers: thy name is worthy to be praised 
and glorifiea for eyermore: 'for thou art 
righteous in all the things that thou hast 
done to us : yea, true are all thy works, thy 
ways are right, and all thy judgments trutn. 

^ In all the things that thou hast brought 
upon us, and upon the holy city ot our fathers, 
even Jerusalem, thou hast executed true judg* 
ment: for according to truth and judgment 
didst thou bring all these things upon us be- 
cause of our sins. 'For we have sinned and 
committed iniquity, departing from thee. * In 
all things have we trespassed, and not obeyed 
thy commandments, nor kept them, neither 
done as thou hast commanded us, that it 
might go well with us. ^ Wherefore all that 
thou hast brought upon us, and erery thing that 
thou liast done to ua, thou hast done in true 
judgment. 

"And thou didst deliyer us into the hands of 
lawless enemies, most hateful forsakers qf Gkni, 
and to an uixjust king, and the most wicked in 
all the world. ' And now we cannot open our 
mouths, we are become a shame and reproach 
to thy senrants, and to them that worship thee. 

^Yet deliver us not up wholly, for thy name's 
sake, neither disannul thou thir coyenant: 
^and cause not thv mercy to aenart from 
us, for thy beloved Abraham s sake, for thy ser- 
yant Isaacs sake, and for thy holy Israel's sake; 
''to whom thou hast spoken and promised, 
that thou wouldest multiply their seed as the 
stun of heaven, and as the sand that lieth upon 
the seashore. °For we. O Lord, are become 
less than any nation, and be kept under this 
day in all the world because of our sins. 
>*]M'either is there at this time prince, or pro- 
phet, or leader, or burnt offering, or sacrifice, 
or oblation, or incense, or place to sacrifice be- 
fore thee, and to find mercy. 

^Nevertheless in a contrite heart and an 
humble spirit let us be accepted. ^ Like as in 
the burnt offerings of rams and bullocks, and 
like as in ten thousands of fat lambs : so let 
our sacrifice be in thy sight this day, and grani 
that we may wholly go after thee : for they 
shall not be confoundea that put their trust in 
thee. 

^And now we follow thee with all our 
heart, we fear thee, and seek thy face. ^ ^^&Su

Aim king Astyages was^thcred to liisfaiber^ 
and Cvrus of Persia received his kingdom. ^And 
Pauicl oonyerBcd with the king, and was hon- 
oured aboTO all his friends. 

'Now the Babylonians had an idol, called 
Bel. and there were spent upon him every day 
twelve great measures of jBne flour, and forty 
sheep, and six vessels of wine. * And the king 
wonmipped it, and went daily to adore it : but 
Daniel worshipped his own God. And the king 
said unto him, Why dost not thou worship 
Bel? 'Who answered and said, Because I 
may not worship idols made with hands, but 
the living God, who hath created the heaver, 
and tlio earth, and hath sovereignty over all 
flesh. 

< Then said the kinf^ unto him,Thinkest thou 
not that Bel is a living god? seest thou not 
how much he eateth and drinketh every day P 
7 Then Daniel smiled, and said, O king, be not 
deceived : for this is but clay within, and brass 
without, and did never eat or drink any 
thing. 

^ So the king was wroth, and called for hia 
priests, and said unto them, If ye tell me not 
who this is that devoureth these expences, ye 
shall die. * B ut if ye can certifv me that Bel de- 
Toureth them, then Daniel snail die: for he 
hath spoken blasphemy against Bel. And 
Daniel said unto the king. Let it be according 
to thy word. 

*°Now the priests of Bel were threescore 
and ten, beside their wives and children. And 
the king went with Daniel into the temple of 
BeL ^' So Bel's priests said, Lo, we go out : but 
thou, O king, set on the meat, and make ready 
the wine, and shut the door fast, and seal it 
with thine own signet ; ^ and to-morrow when 
thou comest in, if thou findest not that Bel 
hath eaten up all, we will sufler death : or else 
Daniel, that speaxeth fabely against us. ^ And 
they little regarded it: for under the table 
they had made a privy entrance, whereby they 
entered in continually, and consumed those 
things. 

" So when they were gone forth, the king set 
meats before Bel. Now Daniel had commanded 
his servants to bring ashes, and those they 
strewed throughout all the temple in the pre- 
sence of the sing alone : then went thev out, 
and shut the door, and sealed it with the kine't 
signet, and so dciMtrted. ^ Now in the nignt

Am) it happened, after that Alexander son of 
Philip, the Macedonian, who came out of theland 
of Chettiim, had smitten Darius king of the 
Persians and Medea, that be reigned in his 
stead, the jBrst over Greece, ' and made many 
wars, and won many strong holds, and slew the 
kings of the earth, 'and went through to the 
ends of the earth, and took spoils of many na* 
tions, insomuch that the earth was quiet before 
liim ; whereupon he was exalted, and his heart 
was lifted up. * And he gathered a mighty 
strong host, and ruled over countries, and na- 
tions, and kings, who became tributaries unto 
him. 

* And after tliese things ho fell sick, and per- 
ceired that he should die. ^Wherefore he 
called his serrants, such as were honourable, 
and had been brought up with him from his 
youth, and parted his kingdom among them, 
while he was yet aliye. / So Alexander reigned 
twelve years, and then died. ^ And his serrants 
bare rule every one in his place. ' And after 
his death they all put crowns ffpon themselves: 
so did their sons after them many years : and 
evils were multiplied in the earth. 

'^ And there came out of them a wicked root, 
Antiochus sftmamed Epiphanes, son of Anti- 
ochus the king, who had been an hostage at 
Kome, and he reigned in the hundred and 
thirty and seventh year of the kingdom of the 
Greeks. 

^In those days went there out of Israel 
wicked men, who persuaded many, saying. Let 
us go and make a covenant with the heathen 
that are round about us : for since we departed 
from them we have had much sorrow. ''So this 
device pleased them well.

Bouffht to paint the likeness of their images. 
*^ Tney brought also the priest's garments, 
and the firsttruits, and the tithes : and the 
Nazarites thev stirred up, who had accom- 
plished their days. 

^ Then cried they with a loud voice to- 
ward hearen, saying, What shall we do with 
these, and whither shall we carry them 
away ? ^^ For thy sanctuary is trodden 
down and profaned, and thy priests are in 
heaviness, and brought low. ^^ And, lo, the 
heathen are assembled together against us 
to destroy us: what things they imagine 
against us, thou knowest. ^ How shall we 
be able to stand against them, except thou, 
O Oodt be our help ? ** Then sounded they 
with trumpets, and cried with a loud Toice. 

^ And after this Judas ordained captains 
oyer the people, even csptains over thou- 
sands, and over hundreds, and over fifties, 
and over tens. ^ But as for such as were 
building houses, or had betrothed wives, or 
were planting vineyards, or were fearful, 
those ne commanded that they should re- 
turn, every man to his own house, according 
to the law. 

^* So the camp removed, and pitched iipon 
the south side of Emmaus. *^And Judas 
said, Arm yourselves, and be valiant men, 
and see that ye be in readiness a^inst the 
morning, that ye mav fight with these 
nations, that are assembled together against 
us to destrov us and our sanctuary : '' for 
it is better lor us to die in battle, than to 
behold the calamities of our people and our 
sanctuary. ^I^evertheless, as the will cf 
Qod is in heaven, so let him do. 

Then took Gorgias five thousand footmen, 
and a thousand of the best horsemen, and 
removed out of the camp by night; ^to the 
end he might rush in upon the camp of the 
Jews, and smite them suddenly. And the 
men of the fortress were his ffuides. ' Mow 
when Judas heard thereof, he himself re- 
moved, and the valiant men with him, that 
he might smite the king's army which was 
at Emmaus, ^ while as yet the forces were 
dispersed from the camp. 

^In the mean season came Gorgias by 
night into the camp of Judas : and when he 
found no man there, he sought them in the 
mountains : for he said, These fellows flee 
from us. 

* But as soon as it was day. Judas shewed 
himself in the plain with three thousand 
men, who nevertheless had neither armour 
nor swords to their minds. ^ And they saw 
the camp of the heathen, that it was strong 
and well harnessed, and compassed round 
about with horsemen ; and these were ex- 
pert of war. 

^Then said Judas to the men that were 
with him, Fear ye not their multitude, 
neither be ye afraid of their assault. * Re- 
member how our fathers were delivered in 
the Red sea, when Pharaoh pursued them 
with an army. ^ Now therefore let us cry 
unto heaven, if peradventure the J-iord will 
have mercy upon us, and remember the 
covenant of our fathers, and destroy this 
host before our face this day : ^^ that so all 
the heathen may know that there is one who 
delivereth and saveth Israel 

^ Then the strangers lifted up their eyes, 
and saw them coming orer against t\v«G&^

and haying made his army greater than it 
was, he pur];)osed to come a^n into Judea. 

^ Then said Judas and his brethren, Be- 
hold, our enemies are discomfited: let us 
RO up to cleanse and dedicate the sanctuary. 
^ Upon this all the host assembled them- 
selves together, and went up into mount 
Sion. ^ And when they saw the sanctuary 
desolate, and the altor profaned, and the 
gates burned up, and shrubs growing in the 
courts as in a forest, or in one of the moun- 
tains, yea, and the priests* chambers pulled 
down : ^ they rent their clothes, and made 
great lamentation, and cast ashes upon 
their heads, ^and fell down flat to the 
ground upon their faces, and blew an 
alarm with the trumpets, and cried toward 
heaven. 

^^ Then Judas appointed certain men to 
fight against those that were in the for- 
tress, until he had cleansed the sanctuary. 
*^ So he chose priests of blameless conversa- 
tion, such as had pleasure in the law: 
^ who cleansed the sanctuary, and bare out 
the defiled stones into an unclean place. 
** And when as thev consulted what to do 
with the altar of Dumt ofierings, which 
was profaned ; ^ they thought it best to 
pull it down, lest it should be a reproach 
to them, because the h^then had defiled 
it : wherefore they pulled it down, ^ and 
laid up the stones in the mountain of the 
temple in a convenient place, until there 
should come a prophet to shew what should 
be done with them. 

^7 Then they took whole stones according 
to the law, and built a new altar according 
to the former ; ^ and made up the sanc- 
tuary, and the things that were within the 
temple, and hallowed the courts. ^ *They 
made also new holy vessels, and into the 
temple they brought the candlesticki and 
the altar of incense, and the table. 

^And upon the ^tar they burned in- 
cense, and the lamps that were upon the 
candlestick they ligoted, that they might 
give light in the temple. ^^Furthermore 
they set the loaves upon the table, and 
spread out the veils, and finished all tho 
works which they had begun to make. 

" Now on the five and twentietli day of 
the ninth month, which U called the montli 
Casleu, in the hundred forty and eighth 

Sear, they rose up betimes in the morning, 
and offered sacrifice according to tho law 
upon the now altar of burnt offerings, which 
they had made. '^ At what time and day 
the heathen had profaned it, even in that 
was it dedicated with songs, and citlierns, 
and harps, and cymbals. ^Then all the 
people fell upon their faces, worshipping 
and praising the Ood of heaven, who naa 
given tliem good success. 

*^ And so they kept the dedication of the 
altar eight days, ana offered burnt offerings 
with gladness, and sacrificed the sacrifice of 
deliverance and praise. ^ They decked also 
the forefront of the temple with crowns of 
gold and with shields ; and the gates and 
the chambers they renewed, and hanged 
doors upon them. ** Thus was there very 
great gladness among the people, for that 
the reproach of the heathen was put away. 

^ Moreover Judas and his brethren with 
the whole oongregation of Israel ordaiaa^L^
