PREFACE. 



The letter of the Bible U the ehrine of its spirit Hutl the organimn liy which it ootnes into 
Btact with th<» reader's miiul. llenee the most spiritual of Bible sludente may well fool 
gr«it«?ful to all who bare toiled ut the wearying tank of preserving, and — whore necoBsary and 
puesible — restoring the true letter of tlie Sacred Text in its original tonguea. All honour 
then to men who— like Ginsbiu-g. Tregelles, and We«lcx»tt and Hort — have for long years 
laboured, chiefly that others might enter into their labours. 

No EngUtih Bible can be more than a translation, fnnca the Sacrod Scriptures of the Old 
and New Testainenta wore originally written in Hebrew oud in Greek. Hence it muat be 
obrjoufl to all, that just in proportion to the iinpurtanco of these documents muHt be the 
obligation to translate them oa accurately and adequately as possible ; and since in the vury 
nature of things no truialation can be porfoct, improvement is always possible. Eron if no 
further improvement weru attainable, various renderings for diflforent classew of i-eaders would 
still probably be of service. Besides, l>ivine fuvoun* are freely and widely bostowwl ; and the 
humblest individual translator may rootionably deem it poaaible to contribute something to 
the common stock of happy and effective renderings. Hence it may not bo pre'^umptuous to 
hope? that a ui^efuL place will Iw filled by The Emphasised Bible. 

Reverent faith and fearless criticism are not necessarily (.ip[M)st>d. Ue that believes may 
usefully ask — W/mt } and Why / It may be more imjverative than some dream to put suob 
qw«tioos, unless faith is to degenerate into superstition. Criticism itself may bo subdivided 
and classified, Th«ru is the T^ower, which deals with wonis and sentences, and employs 
grammar and dictiunai*y to find out their sonae and force. There ia the Higher, which seeks 
to get behind the text, and to track the wellnigh hidden streams of origin, using for the 
purpose litentry culture, ct>iniHirison, conjecture and speculation — sometimes, indeed, to great 
good purjiose, by laying down tnicks along which to look for trusty **i[tendation : at others, 
quite needlessly disturbing the common faith, by c/jnfounding editorship (which itll books 
need) with authorship, and, worse still, by imagining tiacient iuvuutivo liberties fiiUing little 
short of forgery, without any necessity ap}>rcciuble by common minds. And, finally, there is the 
Highest critieisiu, which springs from sympathy, insight, and experience in divine things; 
from claiming which modest mou instinctively ehrink ; but which is a reality nevertheless, 
and is cKimetimes richly possessed by humble wuls who, though unversed in literor}* problems, 
know when brood conclusions wound their religious instincts, and whose unsophisticated judgment 
deserves respectful consideration twfore any general critical conclusions can be pronounoeil 
wholly satiefuctonr'. It is devoutly to be wished that criticism may yet prove itself a greater 
aifl to faith than it has done in the recent past. It» services hithert«> must not bo forgotten ; 
nnd candour should W brought to its appreciation. The present Translator has striven to 
reach abeulute freedom from pix'judice : and feels const mint -41 to record the seemingly 
paradoxical testimony — that the bo-cuIKkI higher critics Imve won the position of worthily 
oLiiupying the ver}' front rank of workers in the field of the lower rritici.-*m. where all Learners 
must begin ; and that among Hebi'ew LexiiMins, none approaches-- for thoroughness, accuracy, 
ttod resolute sobriety the splendid monuuieut'uf Kuglish, American, and Contioontal learning, 
now nearly complete, enmnuting from the Oxford Press. 

The 6acre<l joy experienced during the twelve yeais of hai-d work bestowed upon the produc- 
tion of The Eufuasised Biblb might excuse the vain desire that another life could l>e vouch- 
safed in which to reap the fnut of antewdent toil ; but all this is soberoil and Hubdued by the 
reflection that the fire itself, human and divine, luuat prore tfery man a u:ork, of what sort it m. 
It remains only to render hearty thanks to the Scholars whose labours have made thi» 
work possible ; to the Reviewers whose encouragement luw lightened a protracted tliough 
pleAsaut tusk; to the FVintere and Coi-rectors of the Pre»« whose enteri>ri8e and patience have 
done much tn make this Bible ii pleasure to look on and au instrument to handle with facility; 
but first and last — especially in view of preserved life and eyesight and mental freslinesH - 
to Him from whom aU blessings flow.

EMPHASISED BIBLE. 



CHArTER I. 



THK SPECIAL FEATUUKS OF THIS TRANSLATION. 

That this purporta to be an " ErophiuiiHed " Bible ia uHtunilly the first thing to be 
uoliced. But a« it seems desirable tii devuta an entire chapter to the atihject of 
Kmpliasis, further diBcuwiou of this prominent chornoteristic majr be conveuiently 
deferred until it falls to be coasidered in due course. In the ineantiitie thera 

re (ither features which have grown up around this, which it will be of advantage to 

Bt forth in order. 

1. Tlia six« of the page. It is with design that this baa been made large ; mainly 
fur the purpose of bringing into one view connected portions, the constituent pArts of 
which ctiu be no much more easily gra:itped and remembered when readily seen in 
their relation to eueU uther and to the whule, than when extended over several bmaller 
pages. The familiar Kfteenth chapter of the (M>»t>el by Luke adfurdtt an excolleut 
example; the whule chapter being here brought within two columns, in which its 
hiatohcal introduction and the three parables of which it is c>»inpo4ed are at ouve 
taken iu by the eye. 

2. The TarTUig indentations of the lines. These liave been employed to 
serve several imjHirtaiit piir[Mwe». 

a. They mark the transit t-cm/r&m ^^amUive to Sj>efc/i, The first chapter of Genesis 
comes out into beautiful relief by this means. After a few introductory 
words, the arrangement of the lines seems like a oommentary on the text 
" He spake, and it was done.'' '* He sptake " — and the words of the speech are 
distinguished by being set in ; " and it waa done " — the record of the fact 
is given as narrative, shown by the nearer approach of the lines to the 
left-hand margin. The efl'ect is solemnly dramatic. Sometimes the deeper 
<jiiestions of criticism arc thus brought to the surface, and the humblest 
reader is moved to consider whether, for example, the Speeches of Moses 
recorded in the Book of Deutenummy were afterwards edited. It is tolerably 
plain they were ; and the peix'eption of the fact would appear to favour 



INTBODUCTION. 



the genuineness of the Speeches themselves by the formal removal of objec- 
tions. Sometimes, a^ain, a subtle question of exegesis is brought very near 
to a solution by the mere process of rightly indenting the lines. For instance : 
Does the eighteenth verse of the second chapter of Galatians present a 
conclusion to which the Apostle Paul had for himself arrived ^ — or is he still 
addressing his erring brother Peter, and delicately suggesting that Peter was 
now, at Antioch, " building up " an invidious distincfcion which, at Ceesarea, 
he had " destroyed " Y The cited-speech indentation appears to be correctly 
continued there ; and the aptness of the words to describe Peter's incon- 
sistency, coupled with the independent fact that there is nothing to show 
that his faithful brother had yet done addressing him, goes far to settle the 
true explanation. 

L The indentations indicate the existence of Speech within Speech. Thus : Moses 
in the land of Moab, in relating the desert experiences through which the 
Sons of Israel, with himself, had newly come, cites previous speeches made at 
the respective times to which he refers — what the people had said to him 
and how he had answered the people. And it is an undoubted gain to be 
vividly confronted with the inquiry, Would any historical romancist have 
dared not only to put invented speeches into the mouth of Moses, but 
similar speeches into the mouth of God 1 " Speech within speech " is to be 
found in many places, and is sometimes discovered to be invested with great 
interest : as when Solomon, in his Dedicatory Prayer,* cites Bivine promises 
previously made to his father David ; or as when the Ap(»tle Paul, in 
addressing King Agrippa, quotes the very words in which the Risen Jesus 
had addressed him.** 

c. The indentatiuni call attention to the existence of Poetv: Parallelism. This 
special kind of parallelism is, of course, not to be confounded with parallel 
texts or parallel narratives, important though these both are in their own 
way. Poetic Parallelism is that beautiful, measured reduplication of thought, 
whereby the same sentiment or fact or promise is doubly expressed, the 
second time with a difference, still within the general scope of the first ; the 
variation serving not only to cluster together beauties of speech, such as 
synonyms, contrasts, subservient natural images, and so forth, i)iit to fix 
the general scope and outlook of the couplet or stansa, the one line hinting 
the limit to which the other may be assumed to submit, or defining the 
subject to which it also relates. From this point of view Parallelism steps'in 
as a most graceful aud useful handmaid to Exposition. But the charm of it, 
is what first is felt. " So Grod created man in his image " : that sounds like 
prose, however weighty. But when Parallelism breaks in with its balanced 
couplet — 

In the imag« of God created he him, 
Mftle and female created he them,—*' 

then we know we are in the presence of Poesy — a most fitting place, surely, 

for her first appearance ! 

There the lawleae cease from raging, 
And there the tinlwom are at reitt,<* 

is so plaintive as to be like a mother's lullaby over her sick child. 
■ 1 K. viii. ; 2 Ch. vi. " Acts xxvi. 14-18. * G«n. i. 27. * Job iii. 17. 



Another strain is touched when we read — 

For a child hftth been born u> ust 
A aon bacti l>een i[iveu to ub,— * 

in which it nmy be noted tliat thi$ and not the rurrmt rhythm ia 

unHoubtedly the true one : since this it is which, clo»ely following the 

Hebrew, throws the cmphnais in the right plooe — on *' cliild ' and "flon.'' 

/"Act-c lies our hope — in Him ! These samples will suffice to point to the 

thoiisands of instances of Parallelism which, in this tmnslation, lie before the 

reader. The present is not the place for discussing the many varieties of 

Paralleliam to be found in the Bible. The subject is necessarily familiar in 

all trefiti«e« on Hebrew poetry. Better, however, than the pemsal of any 

printed treatise will be the coIUtiug and ctassifying of instances by each 

student for hiuisolf. He ciiu label hJa sampletiat pleasure, as "synonymous," 

"antithetic," "recurrent," "progressive," and so forth, provided he correctly 

desuritie them. It is uncertain whether due attention ha» generally been 

given to what may be described as semi-parallelism, not infrequently to be 

found in Isaiah. Its presence is intimated in this Bible, either by a couple 

of responding extra capitala, as in the following : — 

I am Mted With Mveudiog-oScnngH uf nmw. 
And the fat of fed beutA.*' 

So have I swam- Not to be vexed irith thee, 
Nor tn nbuko thee;' 

or, when space has required it, by an extra line bestowed upon it, sooner than 
do it an injustice. Thus — 

And tbey slmll call tbet*— 
Tho city uf Yahwph, 
The Zion (if tbe Holjr One of Itnd.* 

There is one especial form of ramlleliam to which much interest attaches, 
if not by reason of any novelty iu ihe attention given to it, yet at least by 
virtue of its inherently striking character and the help it occasionally 
renders to right reading and interpretation. Dr. R. MoiiUon" terms it the 
£ntiUof>r arrangemeut of lines. Its simplest form is where the first line is 
responded to by the fourth, and the second is answered by the third. A 
single example will show what is meant : — 

I^t uiH Mje thy form, 

1^ m« Itear thy voice, — 

for thy Toiou m sweet. 
And thy form comely.' 

Its bearing uj>on the correct reading of the original is seen in l&i. ix. 3 ; the 
much-needed emendation of which is reached by Dr. Ginsburg through a 
wholly independent process, dealing with qucsiiouH of abbreviiLtion aud letter 
grouping. The result of his critical revision of tho Hebrew text is atrongly 
confirmed by the fact that thereby is produced this very special and beautiful 
form of parallelism : — 

Thou hwit incTfAHcd the cxuItAtion. 
Thou hA8t madi! greKt the )oy,— 
They jtiy Ijefure thee according w the joy of harvest. 

Am man exult when they distribubt spoil."

INTRODUCrriON. 



1 



How it touches oxegesis may be discovered by tumiiig to Mat. vii. 6 ; in 
explaiuing which we need no louger fear it aa an undue liberty, to attribute 
to the "dogs" the "turning" mid "tearing," and to the "swine" the 
'* trouipliug underfoot." " 

d. The indentatiunK of the lines fiirther present the reaulta of Logical Anaiyns. 
This is the case where, without any suspicion of poetry, the thought-relation 
of the clauses ih mora readily seen by means of the exact place assigned to the 
line-comnieuceinents ; whether, for example, a second line is to be regarded 
as co-ordinate with the first^that Ik, of an t^uaUy leading character ; or aa 
subordiuate, suliservient, helping. An extremely simple instance may he 
found in the settuig forth of Martha's reply to our Lord, who has just said, 
" Believest thou this?" 

She etmith uut4> him — 

Yea, Lard ! I Imve believed, 

Tb»t thou art thy Chriat, the Son of Uod,— 
He who into the world ahuuld come. 

Here, the first line of course is narrative. In bht' secoud, Martha confesses 
that she tiau faith, but the lino stops short of saying what it is she . 
believes ; Uuit beitig reserved for a new and further-itidented line, so indented I 
partly because thereby greater distinctne»s is given to the propoeitiuu 
which first defines her faith, and partly also because her answer appears 
to be, if not evasive, yet a little indirect. She, at any rat«, doea not say 
quitu simply, "Yea Lord! 1 believe this!" For some reason, she prefers 
to formulitto her own faith. Why she did this may l>e worth inquiry. 
Was it that she felt the answer she gave fully endorsed the statements 
Jesus had just made : " Believing thee tu be who and what thou art, 1 at 
once contide in the ti-uth of whatsoever thou art pleased to tell me?" Or 
was it [>crhnps I'ather that she was diflident of herself, and hesitated to ■ 
say whether she believed a revelation so lofty and of such a sweeping 
amplitude as that just disclosed ; and therefore in her grief and jwrplexity 
prefeiTcd to fall back upon a more eleuiuntary truth, to which she felt she 
had already attained, and upon which she could still rely 1 The indentation 
of that Hue cnnduets the reader to this profoundly interesting psychologicid 
inquiry. Then the further pushing iu uf the last line is merely to point 
out— what is seen after a moment's reflection to be true^-that this final 
line is subordinate to the one that precedes it, being of an explanatory 
character, as showing who and what tlie ('hrist, the Son of Uod, umat be, 
and as indicating Martha's persuasion that iu the sympitlietic Teacher 
standing before her she saw Him whom the prophetic Scriptures had 
foretold and for whom the ages had waited. Now if all this food for thought 
is preaented, iu what may be termed a digestible form, by means of four 
linea of varying indentation, surely the average thoughtful reader can take 
the hint, and not deem " Logical Analysis " beyond him, but do a Httlc of 
it for himself, just when he is analytically inclined ; and, for the re^it, 
can come to u working confidence in the Translator for haviug presented

to trouble himself prematurely or ovennuoh. This, bowever. is coitoin — 
naiudj. that a little iwraeverauce will soou render it easy tothe reader of this 
Bible to pay a protiUhlc ro^^'ard to the parentbcae« and dlgrcstiioDS which so 
tttnkiiigly ohontctcrise the writinu;a of the Apostle Paul. To a principal 
Btatemeut, he sut>ordiuateij iwotbcr ; then, to that, another ; and bo on to 
8uch a degree that, although for a time we can comfortably indent more 
and more, yet at length the device of indentation comes iwrilously near 
breaking down; and to avoid being driven quite up to the right-luind 
margin, and so having no column at all left, we are constrained to UBe substi- 
tutionary initial capitals (as in Kphenians i. and Colussians i.) to indicate where 
further- indented new lines would begin if only there were room. Rxtreme 
iodentatioHj as tlie initiated know well, is literally, in printing, an expensive 
luxury ; but the student rcajm the beue6t, and his sense of triumph becomes 
a keen enjoyment an be watches the return of the greut Kvangeliual Thinker 
to the point from which — a good white ago — he started. He oonfexses that 
his Guide has wandered ; but ho boasts that his Master never comes 
hack empty. Wltat, for example, though the ontii-o Third of Ephesians 
is a parenthesis 1 The world would have been poorer without it Further- 
more, when industrious readers wake up to the gains which Logical 
Analysis promises to brinj.' home, they may find thomselvca marking with 
the gTpjitest interest the unexpected appearance of a similar Logical Idiuni 
in the Book of Ezckiel to that which is found in the Book of Duuiel — 
pursued to such a remarkable extent, in these two Books alone, as to give 
colour to the assumption tluit, after all, in spite of the contrary asaortions of 
mrtiiin critic-s, the prophets Kzekiel and Daniel were very nearly contempo- 
raries, just 08 the sacred history would naturally lead us to sQppose they 
were. 

e. The arrangement of the lines is occ<i»iunally used to set forth, in a becoming 
style, Divine ProeiamntioiiM and certain obvious approximations to Divine 
Siffttalitre. For example : to centralise the words 
ThuB saith Yfchweh— 

is simply to invoke the assistance of the eye to give to that formula the 
dominating force over the announcement which follows which by the 
intention of the prophet it should uaturally have. And so again there are 
oases in the Pentateuch and in the Prophets in which the oft-recurring 
formula, "As Yahweb commanded Moses,"* or " Declareth Vahweh,"^ can 
be more l>eeomingly appended, and with better effect, as a lioe by iteelf 
drawn towards the right hand, after the manner of a signature, than in 
any other way. 

3- Vftrietl©* of tjrp9. — These have been but sparingly resorted to, partly on the 
' of economy, hut chietly because continual changes of t^'pe soon become annoying 
And oven dietrcAsiug to the eye. For these rea^fHia Emphasis, in particular, has not 
been thus indicated. At the same time the discreet employment of other than the 
ordmary type has been made to answer a few very serviceable ends. ^

These naturally alxtimd in the Psalma;" and thorn are few readerH who will 
not be pleased to find them so mado prominent throughout that favourite 
Uook. The presence of "refrains" in the early chapters of Isaiah will 
surprise some readen ; while the cxistenue of them in the prophecies of 
Jeremiah will iiHt4)nisb still uiort>, especially if we are allowed to classify 
under the heAcliug of " refrains " the recurrence of a biting phrase, ma*for

biu-led l»y Jeremiah ujpitust his priestly persecutor Pushhur [xx. 3]), then

reappear, finally, io the plaintive dirge of the same weeping pruphet 
(Loui. ii. '2'2)y thereby, at last, well-nigh proving its claim to a place umoug

Jeremiah is the melodious couplet —

however, we can tolerate the extension of the word " refrain " to the most 
inspiring recurrence of consolatory truths apart from auy further thought 
of poetic composition, then we may surely distinguish by that name the 
brighte.st ]>romisc of the Old Testament, which iueet« us in the form of an

Hebrew is Eloak (principally confined to the Book of Job). It is not, perhaps, 
to be asHumed that these diacrimiuationB are of supreme importauce ; never- 
theletts when connected with other thini^, they are certainly invested with 
oonsidorable interest. For the wonl EloiUin,^QM note on Gen. i. I. El will be 
readily remembered as entering iuto the compo»iti(>n of proper names, Huch aa 
''Beth-</,'* ** Immaiiu-«/," and many others. It may also be discovered — the 
evidence would seem to point that way — that in the use of the independent 
monosyllable El, just where the moral feelinf,r \& most intense, there Bl 
shows an aptitude to step in, in preference to Ehhim. The ordinary reader 
can DOW judge of this for himself. Without ima^nin^ anything less Micrcd 
in Eloah than in its longer or shorter companions, this at least is clear, that 
EUxth — as compared with the most sacred Name (the Tetragrammaton — see 
Chapter IV.)— is held to be go<id enough for the controversial spirit which 
undeniably pervades all the middle portion of the Book of Job.

conveniently conspicuous. Tliat it is of great uonvonience and of consider- 
able practical utility to be able to see at once what portions from the 
Jewiah Scriptures are quoted in the Christian, will not be denied by anyone 
who bus given a fair umount of attention to the matter; nor can it be 
questioned that the employment of italic letter for the purpose is far more 
effective than the afloption even of quotation marks would luivc been. 
Thereby, for example, the reader perceives without any appreciable trouble 
how largely the Book of the " Revelation " ia constructed out of Old 
Testament language and inntgery. Thereby also he sees instantly how even 
a single word out of a citation becomes the pivot on wluch an argument ia 
made to turn."

owing to the risk of needlessly determining or attempting to detemiine 
diflicult questions of interpretation ; but an experiment having been mode, 
the result seemed to promise so much convenience and assistance to average

English word than that adopted in the text might have given the sense of the 
original nearly or quite as well ; and that for the reader to know this 
may be of practical service. It is well for the reader to bo aware that oft- 
tiinea no one word wholly and absolutely and alone says precisely what ia

CHAPTER 11, 



CONCERNING EMPHASIS 
AS AtTHOUlTATIVELY INDICATED IN THE HOLY 8CR1PTUKKS. 

1. "Strike, but hear me ! " exclaimed au ancient onitor to an infuriated mob ; that 
is, "Strike, if you will ; but hear me firBt." in reading aloud this citation, some little 
stress is instinctively laid on the two words " strike " and "hear," thereby assisting the 
ear to catch the plauily intended contrast. A few ycjirs since, the same saying was 
modified in hcubc by a change of emjiiiasis. A trade strike was pending, when an 
illustrated paper, giving an imposing figure representing " Law," put beneath the figure 
the legend, " Strike, but hear me I " in this way not only investing the word " strike " 
with a modem significance, but suggesting, by the emphasis laid on the word " me,"' a 
timolj' contrast—as much us to say, " You have listened to other advisers : before j-ou 
act on their counsel, hearken to nte — consider whether yom* contomplatod strike would 
bo legal" This new jKiiiit put int<» the old words would perhaps scarcely have been 
oaught, even with the help of the symbolic figure of the cartoon, but for the outward 
and visible sign of emphasis attached to the closing word "m«." 

3. It is freoly granted that context and circumstance, when known and considered, 
nro in many cases alone sufficient to guide to correct emphasis, whether it be in ordinary 



Utemturc or in the Bible. For example, the bold contniBt made by Christ, in the Sermon 
on the Mount, between other tcachcnt aud himself would niiturally prompt any reader 
of taste to ky i$tre«8 on the pronoun *' I " in the recurring formula — 

Y« bftve liftnrd thmt it hath been said . . , but I nay unto you.* 

3, Context and cirouniKtunce, however, arc not always eufficieut, because not always 
clear. We have therefore to be thankful that our Public Veniioua of the Bible furnish 
further foiidance in thu matter of emphHsiH by ineaiiH of Idiom. The wortli* are 
frei^iiently so arran^od as by their \ery order to indicate where the atreaa ehoutd be 
placed. Thua, in the history of Jo«tcph, where "the butler." in confessing his fault in 
forgetting Joseph, narrates the diverse fate of '* the baker " and himaolf, he says — 

And it cams to paaii, m be intcrpretod to u*. ik> It wm: me he restored unto mtn* office, 
atirl liim he haoffed.'' 

In this sentence it is at once felt that the pronouns "me" and "him" are aa 
certainly emphasised by their mere position as if they had been printed in capitals. 
So, again, where the Apostle Paul, after thanking Clod that he spiike with tunguea 
uaore than any of the Corinthian Christians, proceeds to say — 

Tet in the churcL I had rftcher epeak five words with my anderetandiDf;. thatbjmy vdoe I might 
tcooh others atuo, th^n teu thounaod words io an unknown tongite,' 

it is easily seen from the context that the clause " in the church " governs the whole 
sentence, and should receive the leading stress. Nor is it by order of words alone 
that an emphatic idiom is constituted. Certain forms of eiroumlooution serve the 
same purpose : 

But u for me, I ahall behold thy face in nght«oiun««,'' 

is an altogether effective means of reproducing the force of the emphatic pronoun 
which opens the vcnjt* in the Hebrew. Or a simple repetition secures the result — 

Thu living, the living, he shftll praiae thee, u I do thw day." 

Or * qualifying word of a manifestly emphasising force is employed, like "surely " in 

the following : — 

In tho day that then eateit thereof, thou sh*lt surely din ; ' 

or " certainly " in this place — 

Coakl wo certainly know that he would nay. Bring your brother down ! * 

or " diligently " in this — 

If thou ihalt hearken dUigently unto the voice of the l^tan thy God.^ 

I. Yet. varied as is the Kmphalic Idiom of our Public Versions and numerous as are 
the ifxamples which meet us in which tiiat indication of stress has Ixjen turned to most 
admirable account, the pity is that it has not been resorted to ten times more frequently 
tliau is the case. For, be it observed, the Emphatic Idiom of the English is but a faint 
and fitfiU reflei of the Kniphalic Idiom of the Hebrew and Greek.' This fact is well- 
known to schoUra, though scarcely dreamt of by the general Bible-reading public. A fact

however it ia, aud one which cau be aubBtantiated just as concluaively as any law which 
governs language. The great point at present is that all this aooeesion of force and 
guide to the sense is, in the Sacred Originals, secured simply by Idiom — order of words, 
fulness of expression, repetitions and the like — and is therefore both pervading and 
authoritative. It is " pervading" : not, of course, as though all Scripture needed to be 
formally emphasised to the same degree — to imagine such a thing would be absurd ; 
some styles of Sacred composition, instead of bristling with points, calmly flow on, 
keeping the even tenor of their way — but " pervading " in the satisfactory sense of being 
ever available when required. Whenever a poiDt has to be made, a quiet contrast to be 
rather hinted at than expressed, a sharp and sudden home-thrust to be delivered, Idiom 
is at hand to accomplish it. From which, when the numberless living interrats en- 
shrined in the Bible are considered, it will be expected to follow — and follow it does — 
that a very large amount of indicated stress und€t'lies almost every page of the Sacred 
Volume. And — does it need to be repeated 1 — Emphasis so conveyed is surely 
" authoritative " : which is not the same thing as saying there is no room for 
misapprehension in this place or in that ; nor is it the same as affirming that all scholara 
are absolutely agreed about every little point. But the emphasis is *' authoritative," 
inasmuch as it is in the original — is a part of the original— is of the very spirit and 
essence of the original. And being in this way " authoritative," it is in all its main 
indications worthy of unspeakably more diligent heed in exposition than the most 
brilliant fancies of men who dream they may make what they please of Holy Writ. 
Sober students are bound by the laws of Grammar : they are equally bound by the laws 
of Emphasis. 

5. It is one of the leading aims of The Eupuasisbd Bible to do justice to the 
Emphatic Idioms of the original tongues, and thereby place all earnest Bible readers, 
for practical purposes, on the same footing as that occupied by such as are familiar 
with Hebrew and Greek. 

6. Mainly by Idiom has this been attempted. So that if all the artificial signs of 
Emphasis used in this Bible were swept away, an amount of Emphatic Idiom would 
remain far surpassing that to be found in any other version known to the Translator. 
Although emphatic inversion, for instance, is not in&equently discovered in our Public 
Versions : yet far more frequently and — if the expression may be pardoned — far more 
consistently does it appear in this translation. Take two examples out of thousands : 

A. V. Wilt thoa break » leaf driven to and fro ? 
And wilt thou pursue the dry stubble? 

£m. B. A driven leaf wilt thou cause to tremble? 
Or dry stubble wilt thou pursue ?• 

The latter rendering reproduces the idiom of the Hebrew, and therewith also most 
naturally shows where the primary stress should be laid. 

A.V. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them. 

Em. B. As soon as all his own be putteth forth 
Before them he moveth on.** 

The Idiom, the Emphasis, is in the Greek. It would be endless to cite examples 
of all the various forms which the Original Idiom takes for the sake of conveying

emphiuia. Suffioc it tc> Kay : that in this Bible those fontui \u%ve been siutrcdly 
reproduced whenever poaaible — ao long, timt i&, an thu Knglish remained easily 
iDtelUgible and whs not too couutrauied. 

7. But Idiom alouc would h»vo been utterly infulcf)uate to tlie attainment of the 
object in view. In many instances the endeavour to preserve in Kn^flish the onk>r of 
the wordft in the ariginiil would have rcsultud in obscurity; or, worse still, would have 
conveyed the very opposite of the meaning intended. lu the following passajje from 
the Book of Lamentations, it could have been wished that, for the sake of preiicrving 
the exact rhythm of the Hebrew, it had been perspiouons Kuglish to say — 

For this OBUM bath niclteoed our heart, 
For cheoe things have (larkeoed our eyes:* 

tnOMliuoh as there is tuime little weight naturally resting on the paired wordu (ending 
words in the Hebrew) " heart " and *' eyes " which, if that position could have been 
preaer\ed in English, would iwve aeoured a tine cadence and a satisfying ending to 
each line of the couplet. Bat the coustruction would iu two or three ways have been 
anibiguouK — in fact a wrong meaning to Home of the t«iinH would have boon favoured. 
Therefore, inaBmuch an a clear conveyance of the senac i» rightly tlie first rcf^uirenicnt, 
the Hebrew arrangement cnn only in part be followed, and wc have to be content with 
some such appro.^imation as this — 

For thit cause hftUi our heart' aiclccnMl, 
For tbeae tbingn hsvo oar ojett' dkrlceuud. 

An acute accent on "heart"' and "eyes'" may be allowed as a slight compensation for 
Ions of position ; and, to anticipate for a moment, if our angular sign be then attached to 
the two opening phrases (*' For this cause " and " For these things "), those words will be 
instinctively caught ns advorbifti clauses, strongly empbuaiscd by their commtinding 
position, and ao gathering up into themselves the whole stream of the prophet's 
forgoing lament — - 

<For thU CAXIBM» liftth uur hMirt' sickened, 

<Vw tliese UuBgB> have our oy«8' darkanod. 

This illustration may stand for thousands, and evince beyond a doubt the impossibility 
of meH-*hauically gixing idiom for idiom in translation : hopeless obscurity would 
frequently be the inevitable restilt. And as a sutiicient proof that in some cases idiom 
for idiom would cause the translation to express the very opposite meaning to its 
original, it is enough to cite one instance. 

Elijah calletb this nuui'* 

U the order of the words in the Greek ; yet " this num " is the nominative (that ia, the 
caller) and "Elijah" the objective (that iei, the person [supposed to be] called upon), 
and the true rendering is — 

Thi» man calleth Elijah: 

though rightfully a decided stress should be laid, where indicated, on "Kujah." 

8. That, notwithstanding this risk of ovurdoiug, a very free use of Emphatic Tdiom 
has been made in this Bible will soon appear upon examination. Few sympathetic 
reodem will complain of this. Such readers will perceive and bear in mind that 
inversions in the language of Thb Euthasised Bidle are always intentional — always

aooording to the original — always expressive. They will go on to obeerve that on 
invoraiou which at tinst seeinetl harsh, especially if incaiitiouBly road, soon conimends 
it«t']f when tftstcfiilly utterctl. Kiimlly, the Tmnslalor's pnrpoHO will lie remembered. 
It is due to himself to cuufeHtt timt lie ha» deotned himself privileged, and therefore 
has carried the process of imitating the inversions of Uie originals to a degree scarcely 
tulornbic in any ver«ion designed for piil>lic use. It is quite tnie tliat the larger 
number of the inversions here ventured would, as he conceives, adorn iiny tmnslation, 
and because of their apt reflection of the Hebrew or Ur<;ek he honestly thinks they 
possess strong claims on general adoption; but not all of them. Speaking approxi- 
mately, iwssibly in one case out of ten the Editor of The Empuasisbi* Bihi-k would have 
himself shrunk back from what be has autuilly diu'ed, if he bad been so prcsuitkptuuus 
as to think of producing a competitive translation. His aim throughout has been to 
form a Companion Version : and be respectfully asks the inoasure of indulgence which 
that intention makes reasonable. 

9. One thinjj; at least is clear — uatuely, that Kuglisb Idiom alone could never 
have expressed all the Emphasis enshrined in the originals. It follows that either 
numerous tokens of stress contained in the sacred tongues muse have boen lost, ur else 
artificial means were necessary to give them effeot. As for the best method of doing 
ihis, there is, of course, no accounting for individual jjreferences ; and, given the 
uecesaity, some would have chosen vanettes of type, not sufficiently considering, 
perhaps, how soon these annoy the eye when multiplied. Others, again, would have 
preferred the underscoring which was used iu the first and second editions of the 
Translator's New Testautcnt, unaware, probably, that the costliness of that method 
seemed prohibitive when thought of for the entire Bible. In favoui- of the plan now 
adopted, s\itticc it to claim economy, elasticity, and etfertiveness. The signs here 
employed practically cost nothing, since the compositor can pick up a sign of einphasis 
as easily as he can pick up a comma. The elasticity springs from the combination 
of diverse signs : for example, an interposed accent can appear in the midst of an 
already emphasised clause. jVnii the effectiveness is quite as great as was desired, seeing 
that delicMcy of touch wtw also wished, and even a fitnt^ss to be temporarily disregarded 
~a quality commended to all who find the marks in the least perplexing. Such 
persons as would have l)eeii better pleased with some heavier and more obtrusive style 
of emphasising will kindly bethink them, that stress is mostly quite etTective if laid on 
one syllable of a word, one word in a clause, and so forth ; and that all the guidance 
the eye re<iuires is to be enabled to take iu at a glance the beginning and ending 
of the wurd, the phrase, the clause within which the enhanced stress is to take 
effect, 

10. One explanation further, and nothing will lie needed for completing this chapter, 
beyond a few annotated examples and the syno])sis at the end, which will be con- 
venient for rcfei'cnce both to the scholar and to the learner. The explanation in this : 
Idiom alone, it may be thought, might have been trusted to convey a portion of the 
emphasis indicated in the original, and artificial signs might have been restricted to 
the conveyance of the rest ; instead of which (it may be objected), in this Bible, the 
artiticiftl signs, in [H)int uf fact, mostly accompany the idiom when pretent, as well as 
sen-c as a tubstitute for it mften ab»ent. In fact, however, it was difficult to draw the 
line, especially m^ in many cases, the signs of emphasis served as a species of magnified 
piuutuation, for irliich reason it seemed V)etter to go thnnigh with them Besides

Tile A. v. rendering of this paKsogc leaves much to he desired : partly bocauHe of the 

wrong impression which the word "oflend" conveys, a« though Johus feared He had 

hurt Hi8 disciples' feelings to the degree of provoking their reaentinent; and partly 

because it leaves the point of the question uncertain. The 11. V. obviates the wrong 

imprcBaion, by substituting ** cause to stumble" for *'ofl'end," but it fails to bring out 

the fine point seen by laying a little stress on "you." "Doth tuis cause you to 

Ktumble " — yoii, My diseiplen^ who might haft known ftftt^r ? It is n clear caae; 

for the Greek sets the noun governed before the verb that governs it (cp. poit.

< Wlut i« right, what is rifcht > iihalt thuu parmie.*^ 

In this place both A.V. and R.V. preserve the inversion which opens the verae, and for 
that wc are thankfid : " That which is altogether just shalt thou follow." But why 
not tuive given it with the greater simplicity and vivacity uf the original ! — 
zedhrk :/MfJt tirdfij" — it la all there. And why not have given the full force of the 
verb ** pursue" — "pursue" with determination, and not merely *' follow" with half- 
heartedness or from u dull sense of duty ?

So th»t my aoul chooMth Atmnfrlin^,

Note here how parallelism and emphasis enhance the effect of each other. There 
being two sytiouymous couplets, constituting a duplicate expression for each thought 
(viz., first the Divine visitation, then the e^'ect on the sufferer), emphasis steps in at 
the HCd^nd line of each couplet, and strongly accentuates the closing word of the 
prvcoding lino: *• dreams- vinVHw"; "strangling- */f a/A." Note also hnw well the 
sharp L'xprcMtituu which the word "death" draws to itself, pre (tares the way for the 
Uugcring and piteous lament over *' these my bones."

It would be difficult to name a passage more studded with the beauties of combined 
puralleliBin and emphasis than tliis. Otwervc that, here again, there are two couplets ; 
then, that su emphatic inversiun leads off in the first line of the fii'st couplet^ — an accu-

given in the first line, is emphatically and rhetorically amplified iu the second line,

"robe" and "turban" forming not merely clothing, but an adornment tit for any 
assembly ; further, that the term "righteousneHs" at the beginning of the fir»t line i» 
answered by its synonym "ju8tic«" at the end of the Bccond — a not infrequent 
device in Hebrew poetry, and that a& the two Bubutantives reujwnd to each other and 
ending words alao have a natural advanlAge (cp- Synopsifl, A^f), a alight streeH ih 
niarke^l nn "justice." In line three, note how the won! " eyes " at the opening com 
into rhythmic relation with the term '* blind" at the close, the verb "to become 
being unemphatiaUly thrown in between them, with no strctis on the pronoun " I 
which IK merely implied in the verb ; and how finally, in the last line, "feet" anrf' 
"lame," instead of being (Mirted like "eyes" and "blind" in the third line, are swiftly 
and unexpectedly welded into a single emphatic phraoe at the head of the line, to be 
simply followed by the pronoun "1," which, though liaving primarily to serve, after 
Hebrew faifhion, for the verb "to be," yet, with its Inn^-drawn pausal vowel ('ti'nt), 
lingers on the ear with an unspeakable pathos (SynopeiK, By a, laHt 8ent«noe).

The inquisitive will not begrudge the trouble of exaiuining the context which leads up 
to this animated and impressive passage. It will be seen that, with keenest irony, 
idolatrous Israel haa just been adviaed to apply in her extremity to the false gods of 
which she has boasted. "See now"— if haply ye have at length diacovorcd how 
utterly vain is their help- "that /, /—emphatically repeated, as if to invite a penitent 
nation to fill iu the blanks fr<iin the stores of reviving memories — " I" — your^wn, your 
real, your living God; "I" — your long forgotten, but yet faithful, loving tiod, still 
waiting, even now after all this, to be gracious. "See now, that /. / am he ;" or, '"an^ 
the one, and the only one, that can help you." "And there are no' gods with me^ 
— strong negative of the substantive verb, hence accent on " no'." " / kill " — so]>amte 
nominative pronoun (Synopsis, B, a); hence strong emphasis on the pronoun. "And 
makealivo" — nominative pronoun not repeated, hence none needed in English: the 
contrast between "kill" and "make alive'' at this jxiint suffices. "I wound" — 
again no sepikratc iiomiimtive, and no empliasis on "I" this time permissible. But 
then finally, when bringing in the climax "/ beal»" there is a triumphant stress to be

^^r^e was our Substitute and bare our burden. That in this couplet the phrases " our 
riefs " and "our boitowb" are synonymous, is at once evident 

What, perhaps, wo desiderate in the second line is that the pronoun " he " should 
have been again emphasised in like manner as in the line foregoing ; and 
though it is absent from the Miissoretic or traditional text, and therefore, 
according to rule, we can scarcely so mark it, yet we note with intense 
interest that there is a various reading'' relating to that very point, to the 
eft'ect that some Hebrew written copies RCtually have the emphatic " he " ; in 
which, moreover, the ancient Syriac and I^tin versions keep them company 
(implying that the ancient Hebrew standards from which they were formed 
had the pronoun emphatic). And wc are further informed that there are 
some existing Hebrew copies which, though they have not the emphatic hu' 
in the text, yet have it sot down in the margin as a hrt\ that is, to be rtad, 
though not imtten. We have purposely expanded this short note of 
variance, bearing aa it does on a point of much interest. 

To return to the text : —

emphasis indicated tlirfmghout this wonderful prophecy ; and we close them by 
respectfully claiming that it is not at all by the play of pious faucy, but exclusively by 
giving effect to a well-proved idiomatic law that we lay decided stress upon the Divine

diHmiasiag our notice of this example of emphasiii in the famous Fifty-third of Isaiah, 
it may be worth reminding the reader that in at least three places in the New 
Testament* do the words of this Prophecy re-appear, and each time with something of 
the significant emphasis with which the words were originally penned. In fact, 
speitking broadly, the emphasis of the Old T^tament is the emphasis of the New : 
the main idioms are the same, their exegetical value is the same. When successfully 
rendered, the ancient tones and suggestions of the Hebrew are reproduced — in Greek 
in English. The language again lives.

A SYNOPSIS OF THE 
PRINCIPAL LAWS OF EMPHASIS DISCOVERABLE IN THE 
BIBLE ORIGINALS. 
Words are emphatic — 

A. By POSITION. 

«. NominatiTes before verbs — always. • 

h. Genitives,*' datives'' and accusatives' before verbs — always. 

c. Verbs before uomintitives — Blightlj ;* but able to command strong emphasis by 

reduplication, see below, B, o. 

d. Adjectives before nouns — chiefly in N.T., and slightly.' 

e. Words brought into juxtaposition — sometimes, in prose, internal evidence con- 

curring ;r more frequently in poetry, where the last word of one line is often 
varied and emphatically echo^ by the first in next line.^ 

f. Words postponed to end of sentence — sometimes in prose, sense concurring:' 

more frequently in lyric poetry, in which the last word is mostly weighty, 
and claims secondary stress.^ 

B. By RBPBTITIOK. 

a. Separate nominative pronoun.'' Prolific source of emphasis both in Hebrew and 

Greek, as the separate pronoun is independent of position. Always reli«ble 
when construed with finite verb, which has the pronominal element also within 
itself. Sometimes also, when used instead of a verb, scc-ms by association of 
ideas to lend it>«lf to some little stress.' 

b. Reduplicated verb— chiefly in Hebrew," reappearing by quotation in X.T. 

Always indicates lively emphasis. Infinitive verb generally set before its own 
finite — then emphasis only : occasionally placed after its own finite — then 
perhaps sometimes suggesting continuance or repetition of action.'* 
e. Independent words,** phrases, f and aetitences.^ The mere repetition of these is 
one of the most simple and obvious devices for indicating stress. 

C. By FORMAL EXPRESSION. 

This chiefly applies to Hebrew particles. Owing to the extraordinary facility with 
which the consecution of facts and thoughts can be carried forward by the 
peg-letter waw, it follows that when more formal and preciseconnecting particles 
are employed, some emphasis can generally be felt. Hence springs the stress, 
more or less vigorous, which in Thk Kuphasiseu Bible is frequently marked 
on such connectives as *' now" ('aWrtA). " therefore" {laJu-n), "for this canst " 
(^al kfn). and so on ; in respect of which appeal is confidently made to 
elocutionary instinct as to the validity of the result.

CHAPTER III. 



THE OaiOIXw\.L TEXTS. 



For practicftl purposes it may be assumed tlial Hebrew taid Greek are Uic original 
laaguageii of the Bible. Tlie small proportion of Aramaic eml>odded in the Hebrew 
Bible does not require foniial consideration, just liecaiiHC thiei dialect ik ncarh' nlUed to 
Hebrew, and tbc portions of the (Ud Teataniout written therein form integral parta of 
all Hebrew written copies and printed editions. With regard to the New Tetitumeut, 
the only question that could urise would be whether tK>me parts of it were not Grst 
written in Syriiie and then translated into Greek. But tbis in probably a purely 
aeademical inquiry, and iniisniuch nn the tUBtumjitiou of a (^reek original fur the whole 
of the New Testament doea not exclude Syriac sources from contributing their quota 
towards evidence of genuineuesa and aids to textual purity, the qucstjoii for the 
Translator is reduced to this : What Hebrew Bible and what Greek New Testament 
tthall he employ for making his version I In a word — What Texts sliall he translate? 

It is a relief to thiuk that no translator can be reijuirod first to construct his 
Hebrew and Greek texts Itefore turning them into "Kngliah. Life would not be long 
enough for one man or one set of men to explore the whole of the immeu^ie held - 
beaidee, the task is more likely to bo ethcicntly douo if its widely difTorent departments 
are undertaken by departmental experts. The textual critic prepares the way for the 
translator, a considemtioii which makes this the convenient moment for ntatiug tliat the 
textual crittcii followed in executing The Emphasised Biuiji are resfjcctiTcly Dr. Ginuburg 
in the Old Testament, and Drs. Wcbtcott and Hort in the New. To understand the 
debt of gratitude we owu to these piuueera, it will be l>ctter to take sepanvtely the two 
leading divisions of our Holy <Sonptures, and the more so as each division involvea 
conditions timpplicable to the other. 



I. Thb Original Text op thb Old Tbstament. 

1. The Text ittelf. 

In the Old Testament there seemed to be no choice but to take the received or 
eorrent Massoretic text> unless one had been prepared to embark on the treacherous 
sea of Conjectural Criticism ; and, in the fi»*st writing out of the MS. for this work, that 
text in ita commonly printed form was implicitly followed. It was the singular good 
fortune of the present translator, however, to have only just completed his transcript 
when the Critico-Mafisoretic Hebrew Bible of Dr. C. D. Ginsburg appeared ; and it was 
at once soen how greatly it would add to the value of Thb Eupha-sisku HtBi.R to compare 
tbc MS. throughout with Dr. Giusburg's Hebrew text and to make and tiunslate a 
selection from his priceless Various Readings. This additional labour was gladly imder- 
taken ; and it is deemed no small cause for gratitude to have been spared to fiuisli 
the task, Respecting the Old Testament, therefore, the case now stands ml follows; — 
Bbrew Text used is the revised Massoretic Text edited li9U>r, Ginsburir 



Tlie Hebrew

bcarcely fail to commend themselves as soon as they are understood. The exceptions 
are almost exclusively tJie confirmed and approved various readings to which 
Dr. Ginsburg has prefixed the formula, " It ought to be " so-and-so. These 
nave been incorporated in the text of this version, and not merely inserted 
in the notes ; for it was instinctively felt that what " ought to be " should be in 
a work of this kind. For Dr. Ginsburg's purpose, indeed, it was probably 6tting 
that he should make no changes in his text other thau any which might be required to 
render his edition a perfectly accurate reprint of the Received Massoretic recension, aud 
that accordingly all the emendations he had to propose were wisely incorporated with 
his foot-notes, no matter with what degree of confidence advanced. This method 
was at once seen to be in the true Massoretic spirit, which changes nothing, reproduces 
everything, fences and guards everything. But as this translation of the Old Tratameut 
was intended to make straight for correct exegesis and was purely practical in its design, 
the contrary course was adopted with respect to the especial class of various readings 
now under consideration, and accordingly the resulting changes were boldly made in 
the text of this version, with the unvarying note appended in each case, "So itsbd be," 
duly referring to Ginsburg's authority. It was quite otherwise where Dr. Ginsburg 
prefixed his other formula, " It appears to me " = "I think" it should be so-and-so. 
These conjectural variations have in the following pages been given (where given at all) 
in foot-notes, with the corresponding formula **Gt." = "Dr. Ginsbiu^ thinks" the 
reading should be as follows, in the quoted words then cited. They are the conjectures 
of an expert, often of great value, and always worthy of respectful consideration, but 
not advanced into the text of this Bible, save in a very few exceptional cases distinctly 
notified in the margin. These isolated instances are limited to places in which it was 
felt that the internal evidence fully made up for any lack of external attestation. 

2. T/ie appended Various Bea4ing8. 

A. Whence come these Various Readings ? They are (i.) variations discovered in 
existing standard copies (Codices) or in early printed editions ; (ii.) variations recorded 
in the Massorah itself as having formerly existed in documents now lost; (iii.) 
variations preserved in the Talmud or in the commentaries of ancient Jewish scholars ; 
(iv.) variations proved by Ancient Versions, in cases where the changes cannot 
reasonably be attributed to freedom of translation, but assure us that the translators 
must have had before them a Hebrew Text materially differing from that which has 
l«jen handed down to the present day. 

£. What are the leading CluuraGteristica of these Various Readings? (i.) Many 
of them are exceedingly minute : either resolving themselves into variations of 
spelling and accentuation, such as to naake no difference in translation, and therefore 
passed by in silence in this Bible ; or else making vert/ little difference in English — it 
being of no appreciable consequence whether Israel fell into the *' hand " or '* hands " 
of their enemies. Still, the collating of the smallest variations hsis some value as an 
education, showing how such changes came into existence, and what pains have been 
taken by copyists and textual critics to note them and guard against their multipli- 
cation, (ii.) At the same time, literal minuteness of variation is a very uncertain 
criterion o^mportance. Truth is not measurable by bulk, but by weight. The 
change of ^S^fH^ letter in one case may show nothing but a peculiar spelling of the 
|e word2%}iareas in the very next instance it may indicate a totally different word

our Bibles under the n&me of K'ri by modem editors, who have either entirely 
banished the Sevir from the margin or have on extremely rare occasions condescended 
to notice one of the numerous readings introduced by the name Sevir,"^ As in the 
case of the A'Vu, Ginsburg mostly states by vbat authorities the Sevirin are confirmed 
A reading of this class will be found given in the notes of thui Bible thus : " A sp. vr. 
{$evir\*' followed by a translation of the reading, with the addition of any confirming 
authority, (iii.) Variants cited in the M<t9toraJi itxlf and underlined by Dr. Giusburg. 
When possible these have been given in itidics. For instAnce, "(Sam., Sep,, Vul.)" 
indicates that Dr. Ginsbui^ has found the Sfptuagiittal reading in the Massoretic note 
of a Hebrew codex or edition, (iv.) Variations discovered by collation of existing 
MSS., early printed editions, and Ancient Versions, and recorded without editorial 
opinion. TheRC must be left to speak for themselves. They are here passed on from 
the textual editor, (v.) Cotyectural emendations. As before suggested, these should 
be received with the deference due to an expert, whose opinion takes into account not 
only internal evidence, but probably a shrewd suspicion as to the way in which an error 
may have crept in. Gt = "Ginsburg thinks" is the sign distinguishing this class of 
reading in The Emphasibkd Biblb. (vi.) Conjit-med Emendations. These have already 
been considered, and reasons have been given for incorporating their purport in the 
text of this Translation. *> 

D. How should these Various Readings 1>e treat«d by an ordinary intelligent 
reader? (i.) They may very well lead to a suspense of judgment. Where a 
transcriptional variant of this kind comes into view, it is natural to eschew 
dogmatism. (ii.) Internal evidence may inspire a moral certtiinty as to which 
reading is correct The reader can cautiously rcl}- on this for his owni satisfaction ; and 
the controversialist may urge it — with becoming moderation, (iii.) Converging evidence 
may almost amount to demonstration as to which alternative is to be tnistod. For 
example : Starting with internal evidence in favour of a Various Reading which is 
actually found in some Hebrew MSS. or printed editions, the reader discovers that that 
very reading is exhibited in the Samaintan Pentateuch — an independent lino of 
transmission from an exceedingly ancient exemplar. Then he finds it handed down by 
the Scptuftgint — another line of transmission from a time almost equally remote. And 
finally, wo will suppose, he discovers that the same reading has been preserved by 
the Vulgate. Internal probability — some existing Hebrew standards, Samaritan, 
.Septuagint, Vulgate— what wonder if (some counter evidence notwitlistanding) the 
student yields his mind to a state of working confidence as towards the variant which 
is sustained by such a superior array of proof? 

II. — The Original Tbxt of the Nkw Thstamknt. 

There is the less need to enlarge on this, tiiat information concerning it is by this 
time widely diffused. Few scholars nowadays would advocate the adoption of the so- 
called Received Text of Erasmus and Stephens, published early hi the sixteenth 
century. The discovery and collation of Greek MSS. liave since then made such 
enormous strides, and so many textual critics of supreme ability and industry — such 
as Griesbach, Scholtz, Lachmann, Tischendorf, TreguUes, and Westcott and Hort — 
have laboum}«4n this department, that it would appear an act of sheer madness to go

intelligibly proceed. Our very firKt aub-division will indicate the scriouH turn which 
this inquiry necessarily takes. 

1. — The Namk SiTppRioftso. 

A. The Fact. 

It is willinprly tulmittvd tikat the buppretonon htm not been absolute ; at least so far 
as Hebrew nnd Kuj^lisii are coiieernod. The Name, in its four essential letters, was 
reverently tniuBcribed by the Hebrew copyist, and therefore was necesharily placed 
before the eye of the Hebrew reader. The latter, however, was instnicted not to 
pronounce it-, but to utter instead a Icsk sacinwl name — Adonav or Ei/iuiM. In this way 
The Name was not nutfered to reach the ear of the listener. To that degree it was 
suppressed. The Scptuagint, or ancient Greek veniion, mode the concealment complete by 
regularly snimtituting A'urtM; as the Vulgate, in like manner, employed iJominuj'] both 
Kuriott and Dot/nnus having at the same time their own pi*nper ser\'jce to render lut 
correctly answering to the Hebrew Adtfttay^ confessedly moaning "Lord." The Knglisb 
vervions do nearly the same thing, in rendering The Name as Lord, and occuHionaJly 
<;<)» ; these termH also having their own rightful othce to fill as fitly representing the 
Hebrew titles i4(/onayand Elohim and Et. So that the Trtratframmaton itf nearly hidden 
in our public English versions. Not quite. To those who can note the difference between 
"Lord" and "Lord" and between "(ion" and "(!od," and cAii remember that the former 
(printed with smaij. cAi'iTii^t) do while the latter do not stand for The Name — to 
such an intimation of the difference is conveyed. But although the rradku who looks 
carefully at his book can ite the distinction, yet the mere hearer remains completely 
in the dark respecting it, inasmuch as there is no diflcrence wliatever iu sound between 
'*L<)Bn" and •* Lord ■' or "God" and "Mod." It hence follows that iu nearly all the 
occurrences of The Name (some 7,000 throughout the <Hd Testaiuent) the especial 
Name of Ood is abatolutely withheld from all who simply hear the Biblu re^id. " Nearly 
all," for there are about half a dozen instances in the A.V., und a few more in the lt.V., 
in which 1 1 ua concealment does not take place. In other words there are these very few 
places in w^ibik/lJie Tetrcujmmmaton appears as " Jehovnh " ; and although it may be 
ji^fctii, "^Vriaiftre\^;ev among 80 maa/f" still their presence hasan argumentative value. 



THE INCOMMDNIOABLE NAME. 



39 



H it was wrong to unveil the Tetriifframnution at all, then why do it in these inRtAncesI 

If, OD the other liunJ, it was right to let it be seen in theHe cosen, tlien why not in alii 
\\ ith the exceptions explained, however, it renuiins true to aay, that in our public 
ver&ioDS the one especial Name of *Iod is Huppresned, wholly concealed fnim the 
listening cor, alraoat u» completely hidden from the haBtenin^ or uncritical eye. 

£. The Znunediate Conseqixeaoea o/ the Supptrmon, 

These are^ 

(i.) Partly litemry^ though more than that. lU'fcrence is here made to the confusion 
into which many thin;^ are thrown through this abnormal atate of things. "Baal" is 
•* lord " and so is "Adon " ( Adouay ) — that is unfortunate ; but why add to the ernVwrraas- 
ment by rendering Y H W H {and Y H, the shorter form) also as "Lord "1 Worst of 
all ia the confusion when "Y" and Adonay occur together, as tliey do many times in the 
Book of Ezckiel. Inasmuch as to say, "I^rd Ixmi)" for "Adnnay Y," was toogrotowiuc 
and misleading (positively false to the ear), the nc\v device had to be resorted to of 
rendering this combination by " Lord Oon " — " Gon " in this case, and not " Lord *' at 
aJl, standing for The Name. Even Y H (the shorter form) and Y H VV H (the full 
form) of the Tetragi-aMrnaton, coming togetlier," caused a dilemma ; though in those 
instances, the acuteness of the tmublc compelled the adoption of a partial remedy, and 
•• the Lord Jehovah" is the result, "(.'onfusion," then, is a term not a whit too strong 
to apply to these varying devices. No wonder that even intelligent and edticatcd 
people are continually forgetting what thoy have heard or read concerning so involved 
a matter. 

(ii.) Partly practical. Is it too much to assume that The Name has about 
it something very grand or \ery gracious, or at least something very mysterious 1 
rhichever conclusion is received, the (|uestion arises whether there is not &r>mcthing 
L'ntially prcsuuiptuous, however little intended, in substituting for it one of the 
cotmnoncKt of titles, seeing that there arc on earth "loi-ds many," and the master of 
the humblest slave is his "lonl " I There is surely nothing very grand or gracious or 
my-iterious in that ! It is therefore the roost natur:il presumption that the suppression 
of The Name has entailed on the reader, and especially upon the hearer, irreparable 
loss. 

C. The 'B^mmxn. for the Supprfstion. 

The motive was good — let that be assumed. It was to safeguard the Divine 
Majesty in the minds of men. It was to prevent the inconsiderate mention of Him 
before whom seraphs veil their faces— though even so it is very ditHcuIt to see how 
y-one name should occasion irreverence and uuotlicr not. Why not, then, Icivvc Him 
iltogeihcr unnamed! Why not fear to allude to Him by any title that could definitely 
refer to Him 1 The jiassages commonly cited as funiishing good reason for the 
kufipression surely coimot mean what is thus attributed to them, since there is a wide 
distinction between not taking His Name in vain, and not taking His Name into our 
lips at all, even for prayer or praise. In a word, the motive is respected ; but 
the reverence is regarded as misapplied — the rejison given is seen to be iax;did.

INTEODUCnON, 



11. — Tub Namr Ke^storeo. 
A. Why? 

1. Because its suppression wan a uiiMUko. So grave a itiUtake cannot be corrocte 
too soon. All unwurruiitalilti liberty has boon tiikcn; the ptith of humility' is to retrnce 
our tftepB. 

2. Because thereby serious evil may Vie averteiJ, Men are twyiug to-day that "Y** 
was a mere tribal uauiu, uuU arc siiggc»tin^^ that *' V " Hiiuuelf was but a loeul deity. 
As against tbls, ouly let The Name be boldly and uniformly priutod, uud the 
buinble»t Sunday School teacher will bo able to show the groundlessnesa of the 
nsttertiou. 

3. Because solid advanta^jc may be eoimtod upon as certaiu to follow the reutora- 
tion. Even if the meauiiuj of The Name should not discloae itself, the word it«elf 
would giiidually gather about it the fitting associations — aud that would be a gain ; and 
godly readers would be put on que^t — and thftt woi Id be a further gain : and if 
the true ttignllicancc of the 7'rtrafframm(ttoH should be brought tu light, there would 
be a traiued oouiitttueMcy to whom .ippcaj could he made — and that would be a yet 
greater gaiu. 

A pLAU8iiii.it OaTBCTioK Answkhed. — A plausible argument iu favour of leuviug 
The Name veiled, as it is now, may be Iwisod U]x)U its concealment by the Septuagint. 
The plea take» the fcllowiug form. The .Scptmigint coticeals the TetrwframntntuH under 
the common title Kun'os, " l>»rd." Jeaua used that veraiun as it stood, notably in 
ciiing Psalm ex. !.• Therefore what was good enough for Him should be gtmd enough 
for uti. Ansteer First : Jeaxxa Christ woa not a scribe or literary critic : His mission was 
much higher. Anttcrr Sfcvnd : Jesus hud tu plead his Messiuhship at the bar of the 
Scriptures as then current ; and any criticism by Hiui of tlie nation's Sacred Documents 
might have placed a needless nbstacle in the people's path. We thus conclude that the 
objection may and should be bet lisidc na incouclusivCi and so fall back on tho reaaons 
given why the Diviue Name should be suffered uniformly to appear. 

li. hi What Form? 

1. Wliy not in the fonn "Jfhoeah"} Is that not euphouiousT It is, without 
question. Is it not widely iisefU It is, and may still be freely employed to assist 
through a iwriod of transition. But is it not hallowed and endeared by many a 
beautiful hymn and many a pious meinory ? Without dtml>t ; and therefore it is with 
reluctance that it is here declinerl. But why is it not accepted? There it is — familiar, 
acceptable, ready for ndoptiun. The rcasou is, that it is too heavily burdened with 
merited critical condemnation — as modem, as n eompnjmise, as a " maugrel" word, 
"hybrid," "fantastic," "monatroua." The facta have ouly to bo known to justify this 
rerdict, and to vindicate the propriety of not employing it iu a new and independent 
translation. AAluit are the facLs? And first as to ago. "The pronimciation Jthovah. 
was unknown until 1520, when it wiia introduced b}' (iaiatinus ; but was conteatod bv 
Lo Mercicr, J. Drosiusi and L. Capellus, as against grammatical and historical

4. An Individual Opinion respectfully submitted.

(a) The i-onclusion firmed may Ik; tb\ia expressed : The X«uc itself signifies, 
"He uhu becomoth " ; and the fonuula"^ by which that significance is sus- 
tained mid which is rendered in the Aiithorised VcrHion " 1 am that J am," 
expre^cscs the sense, '* 1 will become what*MX'ver I pleiae " : or, as more exactly 
indicating the idiom hivolved, " I will become whatsoever 1 may l>ecome" 
We amplify the " nuiy," and more freely suggest the natural latitude which 
the idiom claims, by saying: "Whatsoever I will, may, or can liecomc" 

(ft) Tlie re;»»on8 for this concbision are two : FiBST, that it gives the simplest, 
uMwt obvious, most direct force to the derivation of The Name itwolf, aa 
geocsrally admitted. Yahttrh is almoat always n-garded ad the third person, 
«ingnUr, masiculinc. imjvrfcct tense, from the riwi Aaira/i, an old form of the 
root A«i|ra/«. The one ineauingof MnwiA \n "become,"'' So tliat the force of! 
Sfmktitk thus derived, aa a verb, would be " He wi)l K-come": or, as cxpretisivs 
of use and wont, " He lH?nmicth." Then, passing into use as a noun, it is — 
" He who bocomcth," "The Kecoming Ihie." That is precisely how any otheor 
Hebrew name would be foruioii luid would yield up it« inherent significance^ 
Thiis viewed, its hnuuuiUko simplicity wo\ild l» ita great rccommendatioo.

mftitner of men He pleaBcs to take and bear n Namo^ it would seem the very 

piM-foction of «>iidc8ceiiMioii that His Xaine Hhould lie fonnwiaft-er the inatitier 
of iiifiiiH namcB. Second, ihe scum of the formula jfiveii above is very simply 
and idiouiatiiMkUy obtiiinod. Tlio foruiiila it(M.'lf in 'f/iyrh 'at/trr V/i^A, iu 
which it ithould be noted tliat the verb 'fkyeh^ *' I will bceomc," runs forward 
iuto a rc<]tiplicatioii of it«elf ; for It is that which cunstituteit the idioui. As 
a mere rejK?tition, ihe as8ortiuii would he uuDieiiiiing. Tn escape thJH we 
must nwort to iiiynt«ry or iiusftinatioD or — idiom. How if the my»tery it- 
self i» iiiiug^imiry : and where is inia^iuitinii Ui end \ how is it to l>c reduced 
to any tniKty si^iiticanee ! Would it not be more huiiil)U' and childlike to 
be prepared to 6nd that the All-wise and All-loving is dimply addrcKsiug us 
in an idiom of our own ? Wc have many such idinniatic formula* even in 
EngliKli : "1 will Kpeak what twill speak," and the like. Only, aSicT the 
numner of our tou^ie. we avoid the semblance uf meauinfrless repetition by 
cmpha^iising the auxiliary verb: "I will upeak what I witl speak " — my niiiid 
is made up; or *' I will speak what I can, mny^ mutt speak " — aeeording to 
need and oppiirtunity. Now, in Hebrew, the future (impcrfeet, or incipient) 
t«Dae (the oue ujsed here) is freely employed to express mfHtd ; iu other words, 
to convey thow nicer shades of thought which in Knglitth are conveyed by 
such helping words uj* " will," "can," *• may," "could," "would," "might," 
"niiwt." The only 4UCHtion is whether we can aissure ouraelvus thai we are 
not acting fancifully in resorting to that principle of interpretation in the 
imjmrtant .>4tat«ment l>efore tis. Have we any examples of such an idiom 
finding place where, as iu Exo. iii. 14, a word is folded back upon itself I 
As a matter of fact, we have in tlie Old Testament at least three examples in 
which the recognition of this simple idiom brings out an excellent senjic, and 
in which the Aulliorised Version leads the way (followed by tlie Kuvised) iu 
so expresziiug the sense. 

ExAHPLB I. — 1 Samuel xxiii. 13, .\.\. and H.V. : "And they went whithereoeTcr 
they could go." Heb. : '■^v'tiy^ithhatl*ku ba'a»hrr yithhafhku.^^ Freely: "And they 
wandered wheresoever they could, would, or might wander." The repetition is there, 
fuid the idiom, and the elear tenn of it. 

£xA]U>i.B 11. — 2 Samuel xv. 30, A.V. and K.V. : "Seeing I go whither I may." 
Hcb. : "wa*ani hAUk 'at 'agJirr *mn k^iii:" Lit. : "And (or seeing) [ am going whither 
I am going." Again the repetition, again the idiom, again the fit seuae thereby 
con^'eyed- 

ExAxri.E HI. — 2 Kings viii. 1, A.V. and R.V. : "And sojourn wheresoever thou 
ffljist bojouni." Heb.: "u^i/uri UCarhtr thtguri." In the fi nit passage the auxiliary 
is "could"; in the second, "may"; in the thinl, "canst." Idiom is recognised in all, 
»nd through it the meaning is seized and well expressed. 

We thtiB gain all neetlful countenance for the idiom^itic explication of Exo. iii. 14 : 
I will become vrluit«uevt>r I will— may— can— becomt*. 



The only diflictdty is to suggeMt the stiitable latitude, without nnil|||>lj 
without i-inlating any known clmracteristic of the .Si»cnker. Perhiipn the

this momontous occaaiou is : " what 1 plcaso," since we know that the Divine resoiiroea

5. Whether tlie foregoing explanation is ever likely to he pjenemHy accepted or uot, 
one thing appeai-s to be niore and mure uertiiin the more the evidence is considered, 
that the nuinc Yubweb has aome iiihereut nieatiiug of gi-cat force and graciousness ; at 
the very leuat a sigiiiHcunee of aufficient peculiarity to uiuke it more fitting to be 
employed ou uome occasioub tliaii on others. This conclusion, wlilch on iU own merits 
will scarcely he denied, invests the matter with a literary interest which it will be fair 
nut to forget. It may deliver the most o]X'n-niindcd critic from a too ready resort to 
doeuntentari,' hypotheses to account for the pi-osenee or al)sence of The Name in or 
from some verses, sections, and books. The use of previous documents may go some 
way to account for the apjMianuu-e and diryippeanmue of that Nrtme; hut internal fitness 
to be avoided or employed may be an equally feasible exphinution. Leaving aside the 
interesting question whether the sudden appearnnce of the name Vahwuh in combination 
with Elohim iu Genesis ii. may not owe its presence to the teuour of the new section 
which commences at verse 4, in view of Man's cttming upon the scene, there are some 
eznmpleu of the presence and absence of The Name to which any diK-umentary 
hypothesis would appear to Ik; altogether alien, Kor instance, is it uot indicative of 
wbftt wo may call changed moral atmosphere tliat the prologue of the Book of Job 
(chapters i. and ii.) and the epilogue (chapters xxxviii. — xlii.) should be replete with 
the especially gnicious jiMper name " Y," whereas throughout the whole of tho 
doubting, questioning, arguing jwrtion of the Book The Name should occur ouly 
once, chapter xii. 9, and tlien with uncertain attestation'? It appears to ho eqxially 
indicative of a most delicate sense of tituess^ that, whereas The Name is employed on 
an average nearly once iu each of the eight-versed sections of Psalm cxii. — a Fsalm 
per\ade*i by the atmoaphen.- of sustained communion with Yaiiwch— the one exception, 
in which a less sacred divine name is used is the single instjuice in which the Fsjiltuist'a

It is with a feeling of lively satisfaction that the materials for judgment concerning

The above Table may be pat to an interesting Hpedal tue. It vill enable tfae merely Engluih reader to traee the 
•dmilarity of certain Hebrew lettenii as the well-known cause of eirorH of tranMciipticin. For example, be can perceive 
how minnte iit the difference in form between daiah and rrtk, and so bow eanly " iiilenced " might creep in where 
** npSifted " )«lumld have atood, or irtc« versd, in Faalm crxxt, 2 (lee note there] ; and idmilarly bow readily kai tibould 
bare oonted ben in Prov. xi. 10. 

N.B.— Tbe vowel <f may be pronounced aa a in father ; and <> aa e in there.

TABLE XXL 

S10N8 OF Emphasis. (See antey Inirodvctiony Cftapter II.) 

The aipne used in the Old Testuneut are the same as those employed in the New— namoly, 

'.I Ml \\ and < >. 

Those most frequently adopted are the two which call for decided stress :— 

(1) tl II, when the English words appear in their usual, uninvertcd order, though the corre- 

sponding words are known to be emphatic in the Hebrew. 

(2) < >, when there is an inversion in the English arrangement as well as in that of the 

Hebrew. — Sometimes the inverted and emphati(»Jly preplaced portion of the sentenoe is of 
some length, extending to a Hue or more. In such cases the angular marks frequently 
appear in darker typa (tbuH < », so as to be conspicuous, thereby also setting free the 
lighter marks to rfiow a short invention within a longer one {cp. Jer. vii. 6. (i). If it be 
remembered that a closing angular rugn never completes a sentence, but always demands a 
sequel before the statement is finished, both mind and voice will be materially assiated. 

(S) The two signs (', and [ |) are used almost indifferently to denote slight emphasis ; the accent 
being generally preferred for single words, and the single upright lines for the inclusion of 
more than one word in the effect. 

*,* Any givipliJItMtion obaerrable in this method, n$ eomjxtrfd vnth that followed m the New Tettftment^ 
may he fairlit set down to tlie $impler elemcnta and atructtirc of Hetnvto compotitioiu The principle 
throughout i$ the «ini«.

her, — so he took her. and lay with her. and 
humbled her. ^And his soul clave unto Dinah, 
daughter uf Jacob, — and he loved the young 
woman, and spake to the heart of the young 
woman. * Then spake Shechum unto Hamor 

his father, saying, — 
Take me this girl, to wife ! 
^Now llJacobll had heard that he had defiled 
Dinah his daughter, but II his sons;! happened 
to be with his cattle, in the field, — so Jacob kept 
quiet, until they came in. * Then 

came forth Hamor, father of Shechem. unto 
Jacob,— to speak with him. ^Now 

lithe sons of Jaoob|| eame in from the field, as 
soon as they heard, and the men were grieved, 
and it was vexing to them exceedingly,— for jja 
disgraceful deedl! had he done with Israel, 
in lying witli Jacob's daughter, seeing that 
<Bo> it should not be done. "So 

then Hamor spake with them, saying — 

<As for Shechem my son> his soul hath be- 
come attached to your daughter, — I pray 
you give her to him. to wife. 
B And exchange ye daughters with us in 
marriage, — < your daughters > shall ye give 
to US', and <our daughters> shall yu take 
to you'. 
'" And <with U8> shall ye dwell,— and {[the 
luidil shall be before you, tarry, and go 
through it, and get possessions therein. 
^1 Then said Shechem unto her father, and unto 
her brethren. 
Let me find favour in your eyes, — and <what- 
Boever ye may say unto me> will I give : 
13 Heap on me. exoeedingly. dowry and gift, 
and I will give, just as ye may say unto me,— 
but give me the young woman, to wife. 
13 And the sons of Jaeob answered Shechem, 
and Hamor his father, deceitfully, and spake 
(because he had defiled Dinah their sister) — 
1* and said unto them — 

We cannot do this thing, to give our sister 
to a man that is uncircumsised,— for <a 
reproach > it would be' to us, 
" <Only herein > can we consent to you, — 
<If ye will become like us, by circumcising 
to you every male> i*then will we give our 
daughters to |you|, and <your daughters> 
will we take to |u«|,— and we will dwell 
with you, and become one people. 
" But <if ye will not hearken unto us. to be 
circumcised> then will we take our daugh- 
ter, and be gone. 
'8 And their words looked fair, in the eyes of 
Hamor, —and in the eyee of Shechem, Hamor's 
8on ; ^* and the young man deferred not to do 
the thing, becauite he had delight in Jacob's 
daughter, — ;;he|| moreover being more honour- 
able than all the liuuse of his father. 
90 So Hamor entered, with Shechem his son, 
into the gate of their city,— and they spake 
unto the men of their city, saying : 
^ <A8 for these men> j|in peacejl they are' 
with us — let them therefore dwell in the 
land, and go through it, for lithe landlj, lo ! 
it is roomy on both hands, before them, — 



<t)ieirdaughter8> letustaketousforwives, 

and <ourdaughter8> let us give to them. 

" <Only herein > will the men consent to us, 

to dwell witli ua, to become one people, — 

If we circumcise to us every male, even as 

Uheyll are circumcised. 

^ <Their herds, and their substance, and all 

their bea8ta> shall ||they|| not be ours;]? 

<Only> we must consent to th^m, that they 

may dwell with us. 

** And they hearkened unto Hamor, and unto 

Shechem his son, [even all that were going forth 

out of the gate of his city |,— and ever>' male was 

circumcised, |all that were going forth out of 

the gate of his city]. " And it came 

to pass on the third day. | when they were in 

pain I. that two of the sons of Jacob. Simeon and 

I<evi. Dinah's brothers, took each man his 

sword, and came in upon the city, boldly, — and 

slew every male ; ^ <Hamor also, and Shechem 

hi8 8on> slew they with the edge of the sword,- 

and took Dinah out of the house of Shechem, 

and came forth. " llThe sons of Jacob ||> 

came in upon the slain, and plundered the city,— 

because they had defiled their sister: ^<their 

flocks,'' and their herds, and their aases,— and 

that which was in the city, and that which was 

in the field > they took; "and <all their 

wealth, and alt their little ones, and their 

women > took they captive, and seized as 

plunder, — even all that was in their houses.' 

* Then said Jacob unto Simeon and unto Levi— 

Ye have troubled me. by making me odious 

among them that dwell in the land, among 

the Canaanites. and among the Perixzitca,- 

<;Ill having only men that may be 

counted>* they will gather themselves 

together against me, and smite me, — and I 

shall be destroyed, ilboth I' and my house i; 

^1 And they said, — 

<A8 with a harlot> was he to deal with our 
sister?

1 Then said Uod unto Jacob, 

Arise, go up to Beth-el. and dwell there, — 
and make there an altar, to the 6oD who 
appeared unto thee, when thou fleddest from 
the face of Esau thy brother 
9 And Jacob said unto his house, and unto all who 
were with him, — 
Put away the gods of the alien which are in 
your midst, and punfy yourselves, and 
change your garments ; 
> And let UK an8e. and go up to Beth-el, — that 
I may make there an altar, to the Gon who

the eyes of all his servants. " So then Pharaoh 
said unto Jmoph — 
Say unto thy brethren, 
liThift I do,— lade your asses, and go, enter 
into the land of Canaan ; ^ and fetch 
your father and your households, and

^ II Your eye II, moreover, let it not look with

^1 And the sons of Israel did so, and Joseph 
gave them waggons.at the bidding^ of Pharaoh,— 
and gave them provisions for the way : *< <to 
all of them> gave he. to each man, changes of 
rument,— but <to Benjamin> be gave three

and bread and nourishing food for his father, for 
the way. " Thus sent he forth his brethren,

Do not fall out, by the way.
