This work we regard as a very valuable help to all Bible students, whether 
conversant with the Greek language or not. We esteem it (as a whole) the 
most valuable translation of the New Testament extant. 

We call special attention to the "word for word" translation, found, immediatly 
under the Greek text, in the left hand column. It will be found valuable, espe- 
cially for a critical examination of any particular text. A little study will enable 
you to appreciate it. 

Like all things made and done by imperfect mortals, we think this valuable 
work not without its faults. It would seem to us that the author must have held 
the view that Jesus had no prehuman existence, and that there is no personal 
devil: i.e., that when the word "devil" is used evil principle is meant; also 
that Jesus is still a vian zx^A flesh, in glory. 

In commending this work to you as a whole so highly as we have done, we 
deem it but a duty to draw your attention tg a very slight bias which we think 
pervades the work in the direction named. 

As some pointed illustrations of what we have remarked, we suggest an exam- 
ination and comparison between the right and left columns of the work, in the 
following scriptures, viz : John 1:10, Rev. 13:8 ; Jude 9; Heb. 10:20. 

Editor of ''lion's Watch Tower:* 


To trouble the reader with any lengthy remarks on the important advantages 
to be derived from a new translation of the Sacred Writings is deemed altogether 
unnecessary. Much information on this point has been given by others who 
have published modern Versions of the New Testament, with the reasons which 
have induced them to do so. Those reasons will serve in a great measure also 
for this. It is generally admitted by all critics that the Authorized or Common 
version of the Scriptures absolutely needs revision. Obsolete words, uncouth 
phrases, bad grammar and punctuation, etc., all require alteration. But this is 
not all. There are errors of a more serious nature which need correction. The 
translators of the Common version were circumscribed and trammeled by royal 
mandate; they were required to retain certain old ecclesiastical words which, 
accordingly, were left untranslated. Thus the minds of many who had no means 
of knowing the meaning of the original words have been misled and confused. 
Biblical criticism, however, during the last two hundred years, has done much 
to open up and elucidate the Word of God, by discovering many things which 
were unknown to the old translators, making great improvements in the text, 
detecting numerous interpolations and errors, and suggesting far better render- 
ings of many passages. Many modem versions have availed themselves of this 
valuable assistance, and it is believed they have thereby been enabled to give 
the English reader a better understanding of what was originally written. 

Without presuming to claim any superiority for this, as a translation of the 
New Testament, over any other modern version, it is thought that the present 
Work presents certain valuable features, not to be found elsewhere, and which 
will be of real practical utility to every one who wishes to read the books of the 
Evangelists and Apostles, as they were written under the guidance and inspira- 
tion of the Holy Spirit. These features are ; — An approved Greek te.xt, with the 
various Readings of the Vatican Manuscript, No. 1209; an Interlineary literal 
Word for Word English translation ; a New Version, with the Signs of Emphasis ; 
a copious selection of References ; many appropriate, illustrative, and e.xegetical 
Foot-notes; and a valuable Alphabetical Appendix. This combination of im- 
portant items cannot be found in any other book. The reader will find further 
remarks on this subject, on the page headed, " Plan of the Work ;" and he is also 
invited to read the pages with the respective captions; — "To the Reader;" 
" History of the Greek Text ;" and " History of English Versions." Also, on 
another page will be found the " Letters and Pronunciation of the Greek Alpha- 
bet," for the special benefit of those who may wish to obtain a rudimentary 
knowledge of that language. 

The intelligent reader will at once perceive the utility and importance of this 
arrangement. Readers who are familiar with the original tongue obtain in this 
Work one of the best Greek Testaments, with important ancient Readings, well 
worthy of their attention ; and, it is presumed, that there are even few Greek 

iv. - PREFACE. 

scholars who are so far advanced but may derive some help from the transiation 
given. Those who have only a little or no knowledge of the Greek may, by 
careful reading and a little attention to the Interlineary translation, soon become 
familiar with it. This work, in fact, places in the hands of the intelligent English 
reader the means of knowing and appropriating for his own benefit, with but 
little labor on his part, what has cost others years of study and severe toil to 

Scrupulous fidelity has been maintained throughout this version in giving the 
true rendering of the original text into English ; no regard whatever being paid 
to the prevailing doctrines or prejudices of sects, or the peculiar tenets of theo- 
logians. To the Divine authority of the original Scriptures alone has there been 
the most humble and unbiased submission. 

In the preparation of this Work for the press, all available help to be derivea 
from the labors of great and learned men has been obtained and appropriated. 
Lexicons, Grammars, ancient and modern Versions, Commentaries, critical and 
explanatory. Cyclopedias, Bible and other Dictionaries, etc. , have been consulted 
and culled from. Also, the suggestions, opinions and criticism of friends, on 
words, phrases and piassages, have been duly considered, and sometimes 
adopted. It is not presumed that this Work is free from faults or errors. Infal- 
libility is left for others to claim. Great care, however, has been exercised to 
make it as correct as possible. 

The Work is now sent forth to the public, to stand or fall on its own merits. 
True, it cannot boast of being the production of a council of learned men as 
King James' version ; but let it be remembered that Tyndale alone, under very 
disadvantageous circumstances, did far more for the English Bible than that 
learned body, for they only followed in the wake of his labors. 

This Volume, principally designed for the instruction and advantage of others. 

is now reverently committed to the blessing of our Father in the heavens, with 

an earnest and sincere desire that many of those who peruse its pages may be 

led by the knowledge, faith and obedience inculcated therein to obtain an in« 

heritanre in the aionian kingdom of Jesus the Anointed One.

fTTE following condensed ac- 
f'^\ count of the different editions 
^ ,,^,^, jf tlie Greek New Testament, 
(^■"-^jM will introduce the reader to the 
history of the Greek Text, and the va- 
rious steps taken by learned men for 
the purpose of editing it with greater 
Critical accuracy. The history will com- 
mence with the first printed editions. 

The first printed edition of the whole 
cfthe Greek New Testament was that 
contained in the Complutensian Poly 
<flot ; published by Francis Ximenes de 
CiSNEROS. The principal editor of the 
work was Lopez de Stunica. It was 
printed in Greek and Latin, and com- 
pleted January 10th, 1514. In conse- 
quence of the delay as to the publica- 
tion of this edition (from 1514 to 1520) 
that of Erasmus was commenced and 
completed, and was published la 1516, 
feeing the Jirst edition published of the 
Greek New Testament. Like the Com- 
plutensian edition, this was also in 
Greek and Latin. The latter partofthe 
book of Revelation being wanting in his 
MS. he supplied the same by translating 
tfie Latin Vulgate into Greek. 

The Greek Manuscripts used for these 
two editions were few in number, of lit 
tie critical value, and thereibre do not 
possess much real authority. In 1535, 
Erasmus published his fifth edition, 
which is the basis of the common Text.* 

In 1546, and again in 1549, Robert 
Stephens printed, at Paris, two beauti- 
ful small editions of the Greek New 
Testament ; and in 1550 his folio edition 
with various readings from several Man- 
uscripts — he collated some 15 MSS., 
but chiefly followed the Complutensian 

Beza. published five editions of the 
Greek Testament ; the first in 1565, the 
last in 1598. 

In 1624, the Elzevir, printers at Ley- 
den, published a small and beautiful 
Greek Testament, the editor of which is 
wholly unknown. It differs little from 
Stephens' folio edition. The printers 
gave to this Text the name of " Textus 

In Walton's Polyglot of 1657, the 
Greek New Testament was given accor- 
ding to the Te <t of Stephens : and in 
the last volume there was a collection 
of various Readings from such MSS. as 

• Erasmas, in his third edition of 1523, in- 
serted, the text, 1 John v. 7, on the authorilv 
of a MS. now in Dublin. Tyndalc used this 
eJ.tiou to revis'.' his English version. 

were thep 5:nown, The«e varioun Read' 
ings, with some additions, were given in 
the Greek Testamant, published by 
Bishop Fdl, at Oxford, in 1675. 

In 1707, Dr. Mirx's Greek Testament 
appeared. His Text is simply taken 
from Stephens' as given in WaltoTis 
I'uiyglot; his collectionof various Read- 
ings was extensive, and these were made 
the ground for a critical amendment oi 
the Text. 

Dr. Edward Wells published ihe first 
criticcd revision in parts at Oxford, be- 
tween 1709 and 1719, with a translation 
and paraphrase. 

Bengel followed on in the same work 
and published his edition in 1734. and 
i n his " Apparatus Criticus" he enlarged 
Uie stock of various Readings, 

IVETsrELN published his Greek Testa- 
ment in 1751-2, but only indicates in 
his inner margin, the few Readings 
wiiich he preitjrred to those of the El- 
zevir edition. But in the collection ol 
critical materials he did more than all 
his predecessQj-3 put togethero 

Griesbach. in critical labors, excels 
by far any who preceded him. He us):d 
the materialiJ others had gathered. His 
first edition was commenced in 1775; 
his last completed in 18u6. He com- 
bined the results of the collations ol 
Birch, Mattheei and others, with those 
of Wetstein. In his Revision he often 
preferred the testimony of the older 
MSS. to the mass of modern copies. 

Since the publication of Griesbach'3 
Text, three or four other critical edi- 
tions have been published, and have re- 
ceived the examination and approval of 
scholars. Of these, the edition of Scholz, 
has passed through numerous editions. 
His fundamental principle of criticism 
was, that the great majority of copies 
decide as to the correctness of the Text ; 
hence, those who prefer the more ancient 
documents, will consider the Text of 
Griesbach preferable ; while those whose 
judgment would favor the mass of teski- 
msnies, would prefer that of Scholz. 

In addition to Scholz's collation, Lach- 
mann, T»*jhendorf, Tregelles, &c., have 
given t". tha world the result of their 
critical labors, and which are acknow 
ledged to be of the highest authority. 

The number of MSS. now known, and 
which have been examined, is nearly 
700 ; thus affording now a far better 
chance, to obtain a correct Greek Text, 
tlian when the authcrizol version was 
at first published. 


HE first English version of the , vise the translation then in nse. TheJ 

«» New Testament was that made were ordered to use the Bishops' Bible 

^^' by John Wiclip, or Wicliffe, as the basis of the new Tersion, and to 

ibout the year 1367. It was | alter it as little as the original would 

translated from the Latin Bible, verba- 
tim, without any regard to the idiom 
of the languages. Though this version 
was first in point of time, no part of it 
was printed before the year 1731. 

Tyndale's translation was published 
in 1526, either at Antwerp or Ham- 
burg. It is commonly said that Tyu- 
dale translated from the Greek, but he 
never published it to be so on any title 
page of his Testament. One edition, not 
published by him, has this title — " The 
Newe Testament, dylygently corrected 
and compared with the Greke, by Wil- 
lyam Tyndale, and fynesshed in the 

allow; but if the prior translaljons ol 
Tyndale, Coverdale, Matthew, Cranmer 
or Whitchurch, and the Geneva editors 
agreed better with the text, to adopt the 
same. This translation was perhaps the 
best that could be made at the time, and 
if it had not been published by kingly 
authority, it would not now be venera* 
ted by English and American protest- 
ants, as though it had come direct from 
God. It has been convicted of contain- 
ing over 20,000 errors. Nearly 700 Greek 
MSS. are now known, and some of them 
very ancient; whereas the translators 
of the common version had only thead- 

yere of oure Lorde God, A. M. D. and ( vantage of some 8 MSS., none of which 
xxxiiij. in tiae moneth of Nouember." were earlier than the tenth century. 
It is evident he only translated from Since lOn, many translations of both Old 

the Vulgate Latin 

CovERDALE published the whole Bible 
in English, in the year 1535. He " fol- 
lowed his interpreters," and adopted 
Tyndale's version, with the exception 
of a few alterations. 

Matthew's Bible was only Tyndale 
and Coverdale's, published under the 
feigned name of Thomas Matthews. 

Hollybushe's New Testament was 
printed in 1538, "both in Latin and 
English, after the Vulgate text," to 
which Coverdale prefixed a dedication 
to Henry VIII. 

The Great Bible, published in 1539, 
purported to be " translated after the 
veryte of the Hebrue and Greke textes," 
but it is certain that it was only a revi- 
sion of Matthew's, with a few small al- 
terations. It was named ' the Great 
Bible," becausB of its large size. 

Cranmer's Bible, publish-^d in 1540, 
was essentially the same as the Great 
Bible, but took his name on account of 
a few correction'^ which he made in it. 

The Geneva Bible was published at 
Geneva in 1560. The New Testament in 
1557. Coverdale was one of the Geneva 
brethren who issued it. 

The Bishops' Bible was a revisal of 
the English Bible, made by the bishops, 
and compared with the originals. It 
was published in 156S. 

Thb Dowat Bible appeared in 1609, 
and was translated from the authentical 
Latin, or Vulgate. 

KiNQ James' Biblb, or the Authorized 
"Version, was published in 1611. In the 
year 1604, forty-seven persons learned 
in the languages, were ajspointed to re- 

and New Testaments, and portions of tlie 
same, have been published. The following

THAT "All Scripture, divinely inspired, 
is profital)ip, for Teaching, for Convic- 
lion, for Correction, for that Instruction 
wliich is in Righteousness," is the truth- 
ful testimony of the Sacred Writings 
aliout themselves. We rejoice to express 
our conviction that the Word of God was 
perfect and infallible as it emanated from 
those holy nun of old, the Prophets and 
Apostles, wlio "spoke, being moved by 
the Holy Spirit." As arevelation of Jeho- 
vah's will to the human race, it was requi- 
site that it should be an unerring guide. 
Amid the ever conflicting strife of human 
opinions, and the endless diversity of 
thought, we needed such a standard, to 
lead us safely through the perplexing 
problems of life, to counsel us under all 
circumstances, tu reveal the will of our 
Heavenly Parent, and to lift on high a 
celestial light, which streaming through 
the thick darkness that broods around, 
shall guide the feet of his erring and be- 
wildered children to their loving Father's 
home. We needed therefore a testimony 
upon which to repose our faith and hope, 
free from all en-or, immutable, and harmo- 
nious in all its details — somethiHg to tell 
us how to escape from the evils of the 
present, and attain to a glorious future. 
"With reverence and joy w- acknowledge 
Die Sacred Writings to be such, as they 
were originally dictated by the Holy 
Spirit. How important then that they 
should be correctly read and understood ! 
But can it be fairly said that such is the 
case with our present English Version? 
Yv'e opine not. Though freely acknowledg- 
ing that it is sutliciently plain to teach 
men the socifJ and religious duties of life, 
and the path to Immortality, yet it is a 
uotal)le fact that King James' Translation 
is far from bein» a faithful reflection of 
tlie mind of the Spirit, as contained in the 
Original Greek in which the books of the 
New Testament were written. There are 
some thousands of words which are cither 
mistranslated, or too obscurely rendered; 
besides others which are now obsolete, 
tlirough improvement in the language. 
Ik'sides this, it has been too highly colored 
in many places with the party ideas and 
opinions of those who made it, to be 
v.orthy of full and implicit confidence 
being placed in it as a genuine record. 
In the words of Dr. Macknight, "it was 
•"made a little too complaisant to the 
' King, in favoring bis notions of predes- 
" 1 ination. election, %dtchcraft, familiar 
"spirits, and kingly rights, and these it 

"is probable were also the translators' 
" opinions. That their translation is par- 
" tial, speaking the language of, and giv- 
" ing authority to one sect." And 
according to Dr. Gell, it was wrested and 
partial, " and only adapted to one sect ;" 
but he imputes tliis, not to the transla- 
tors, but to those who employed them, 
for even some of the translators com- 
plained that they could not follow tlieir 
own judgment in the matter, but were re^ 
strained by "reasons of state." 

The Version in common use will appear 
more imperfoL-t still, when the fact is known, 
that it was not a traushition from the Oriei. 
nal, but merely a revision of the Versions 
ttien in use. This is evident from the follow, 
ing directions given by King James to the 
translators, viz.: "The Bishops' Bible to be 
" followed, and altered as little as theOrijji. 
" nal will permit. And these translations to 
"be used when they agree better with the 
"text than the Bishops' Bible— namely, Tj-n- 
" dal's, Matthew's, Coverdale's, Whitchurch'.". 
"Geneva." None of these were made from 
the Original Greek, but onlp compared wui 
it— hems all translated from the Vulgate 
Latin. Hence it follows, that the authorized 
version is simply a revision of the Vulgate. 
And the Greek Text, with which it was com- 
pared, was compiled from Eif^ht MSS. onlv, 
ill! of which were written since the tenth 
century, and are now considered of compara- 
tively shght authority. The " Textua Recep. 
tus," or Keceived Greek Text, was made from 
these MSS., and is now proved to be the very 
worst Greek Text extant, in a printed form. 
And there was only one MS. for the Book o i 
Kevelation, and part of that wanting, which 
was supplied by translating the Latin of the 
Vulgate into Greek ! Since the publication 
of the " Textus Rcccptus," and the Common 
Version, someOGO MSS. have been discovered, 
some of which are very .^.ncient, and very 
valuable. The best and oldjst ofthese is one 
marked B., Cod. faticanus, No. IJijS, of the 
fourth and iifth centuries. Thesecond mark- 
ed A., Cod. Alexatidrinus, of the fifth century. 
The third marked C, Cod. F.phrem., about tlie 
fifth century, andthe fourth, marked D., Cod. 
Canfahujiensis, of the seventh century. 

Besides valuahie assistance frnni ancient 
MSS., the DiAGLOTT has obtained 
aid from the labors of many eminent Biblical 
Critics and Translators. Among these may 
be mentioned,— Mill, Wetstein, Griesbach, 
Scholz, Lachmnnn, Tischendorf, Tittman, 
fregelles, Doddridge. Macknight, Campbell, 
Koine, Middleton, Clark, Wakefield, Bloom- 
field, Thompson, Mr.rdock. Kneeland Booth- 
royd. Conquest, Sharpe, Gaussen. llirnbuU, 
Trench, &c., &c. 

Should any person doubt the propript7 o( 
the Translation, m any particular part, let 
himnotliastily censure or condemn till he 
has co.mpared it carefuUj with the various 
authorities on which it is based; and sven 
should he see reason to differ in some re- 
spects, arorrect Greek Text is given, so that 
the Original m!v>- be always appealed to in 
eases ot doubt. However imperfect the 
Translation in.ivbe considered by the Crifc- 
ic t cannot udiilti;rate Die Ongrinai. 


La Greek Text and Interlineary 
Translatiun. — Tbe left baud column 
contains the Greek Text according to 
Dr. J. J. Griesbach, and interlined witb it 


TioN, wherein the corresponding English 
is placed directly under each Greek word. 

The Sectional Divisions are those of the Va- 
tican and Alexandrian MSS. Greek Words 
enclosed in brackets [thus,] thoug'h authori- 
ZL'd by Griesbach, are omitted by the V;tt. MS. 

The advantag;es to be derived from such an 
arrangement must be apparent to thp Bible 
Student. The learned have a Greek Text ac- 
knowledged to be one of thp best extant, 
while the unlearned have almost an eq^ual 
chance with those aoquaintea with t-he Origi- 
nal, by having the meaning and grammatical 
construction given to each word. This part 
of the work will be a desideratum by many, 
but more adapted for criticism than reading. 
Although by adhering to the arrangement of 
the Original, the Translation may appear un- 
couth, yet the strength and beauty oi many 
passages are thereby preserved. 

The frequent recurrence of the Greek arti- 
cle of emphasis, and an occasional ellipsis, 
often interfere with the sense and elegance 
of a sentence, but this cannot well be avoided 
in a word-for-word Translation. The advan- 
t iges, however, accruing to the diligent inves- 
tigator of the Divine Word by persuing this 
plan are many, and will be duly appreciated. 

ti. New Vei*sioii. — The column on 
the right hand side of tlie page is a New 
Version for general reading. This ren- 
dering is based upon that in the left hand 
Column, and the labors of many talented 
Critics and Translators of the Scriptures. 
The Headings of the oldest Manuscripts 
now known are sometimes incorporated, 
and always referred to. In this Column 
the Emphatic Signs are introduced, by 
which the Greek Words of Enipliasis are 
designated. For the use and beauty of 
this arrangement, the reader is requested 
to examine the annexed remai'ks on Signs 
of Emphasis. 

The Chapters and Verses of the Common 
Version have been retained, principally for 
convenience of reference. Thereaderhowever, 
by following the paragraphs in the opposite 
column, need not be governed by these arbi- 
trary divisions. Chapters and Verses were 
not introduced till the middle of the 16th cen- 

3. Foot Notes and References. 

— The various Readings of the Vatican 
MS., Notes for the elucidation of the te.ict, 
and References, are introduced at the bot- 
tom of the page. The Notes are critical, 
illustrative, explanatory, and suggestive. 
Old Testament quotations are always re- 
ferred to, and copious parallel passages m 
the New. 

4. Appendix. — It is intended to add 
an Appendix to the Work, containing all 
the Geographical and Proper Names 
found in the Nl-w TesKimeut, vvitli Wo.di 

and Phrases intimately connected with 
doctrinal subjects, alphabetically arranged. 
These will be critically examined, and the 
liglit of Biblical science thi-own upon such 
as have given rise to sectarian disputes, 
and the cavils of infidels. 


The Greek article often finds it? equivalent 
in the English definite article the, but in the 
majority of cases it is evidently only a mark 
of empnasis. It frequently precedes a sub- 
stantive, an adjective, a verb, an adverb, a 
participle or a particle, thus pointing out the 
emphatic words. The Greek article and Em- 
phatic Pronouns exercise a most important 
influence on the meaning of words, and some, 
times throw light on doctrines of the highest 
interest The sacred penmen of the New 
Testament were, in the opinion of many emi- 
nent persons, guided by Divine inspiration in 
the choice of their woriis : and in the use oi 
the Greek article there was clearly a remark • 
able discretion displayed. In fact, the Signs 
of Emphasis are incorporated with the words 
in such a manner, that the latter cannot be 
stated without conveying at tlie same time 
to the intelligent mind an idea of the very in- 
tonation with which the sentence was spoken 
when it was written down. This peculi- 
arity of the Greek language cannot be pro- 
perly expressed in Enghsh except by the use 
of typographical signs ; such as, Initial Capi- 
tal letters, italics, small capitals, and 

The Common Version of the New Testa- 
ment fails to give the reader a full conception 
of the meaning designed to be conveyed by 
the Greek original, in regard— 

1st. To those Words which are connected 
with the Greek Article ; 

'2d. To those Pronouns Substantive which 
are intended to carry in themselves a peculiar 
emphasis ; and, 

3d. To those Adjectives and Pronouns 
which obtain a comparative importance, by 
reason of the position which they occupy in 
the Greek Text, with reference to some other 

To remedy these deficiencies, tbe following 
System of Noattion is empioyed in the Eng- 
lish column of the Diaglott. 

1. Those Words rendered positively em- 
phatic by the presence of the Greek article, are 
printed in Small Capitals : as, " The life was 
the light of men." 

2. Those Pronouns Substantive which, in 
the Greek, are intended to be positively e'>^- 
phatic are printed in Black Letter: as, "^C 
must increase, but I must decrease." 

3. Those Adjectives and Pronouns which in 
the Greek are comparatively emphatic^, as in- 
dicated by their position, are printed with an 
Initial C;ipital Letter: as, "One Body, and 
One Spirit, even as ye are called in One Hope 
of your CALLirJO." 

4. AH Greek Substantives, as being of more 
importance than other words, are also com- 
menced with a Capital Letter. 

By adopting tliese Signs of Emphasis. U is 
believed certainty and intensity are eriven to 
passages where they occur, as well as vxrncti;^ 
and earnestness to the discourses in which 
they are found; thus rendering the reader, :i 
hearer, as it were, of the life-words of H -u 
■' who snoke as never man spoke." or wUitB 
were enunciated by His inspired apoatles.

*,* AccKKTS are said to 
sometiineii assist the reader 
to dia<"riminate between 
viordo u'hich are alike iu 
fin in, but different in mean- 
ing; but as iliey are by no 
means iipcessnvy, cither for 
the prououueing or under- 
standing of the Gi-eek lan- 
euag'e, and as the earliest ol 
.■rll the manuseiiptx of the 
G:ePk Testament is without 
accL-nts. it haa been thought 
best to omit them in the 
DiAoi.oTT, leaving the fense, 
in do.ibtful cases, to be de- 
termined by the context. If 
accents favor a particular 
sense, ic may be an erroneous 
one, and then they are inju- 
rious ; and if they do not "fa- 
vor any particular sense, 
then they are unnecessary. 

Pronunciatioji. — Consid- 
erable discrepancy of opinion 
prevails among the learned 
concerning the proper sound 
of some ot these leltors, and 
as it is impossible at this dis- 
tance of time to ascertain 
the mode of pronunciation 
among the ancient Greeks, 
the simplest plan is to con- 
sider each Greek letter as 
corresponding in sound to 
its correlative letter in our 
own alphabet, as sliowu iu 
the Table. 

The Letters are divided into seven vowels and seventeen con- 

The Vowels are e, o, short; 77, &>, long; and a, i, v, doubtful. 

DiPUTHONGS are formed of two voAvels joined together, and are 
twelve in number ; six propei-, at, av, et, ev, 01, ov and six im 
proper, o, rj, w, -qv, wv, vi. The little stroke under a, rj, w, stand- 
ing for Iota, called Iota subscript, is not sounded, but merely 
serves to show the derivation. 

The Labials, (it, S, <p,) the Palatals, (k, 7, xO and the Den- 
tals, (t, S, 6,) are named according to the organs of articulation 
employe 1 in pronouncing them. To each of these classes belongs 
a double letter, so called because combining the sound of s with 
that of another consonant; thus, the Labials, tts, /8s, (ps, are 
e<|ual to t|/, the Palatals, ks, 7s, xs> to | and the Dentals, ts ds 

The letter v can stand only before Dentals ; before Labials it be- 
comes fx- before the liquids, (A., ytt, y, p,) assimilation takes place, 
eo that before \ it becomes A, before p it 'becomes p, &c. Before 
Palatals v is converted into y but observe, that whenever 7 is 
found before another 7, or either of the other Palatals, it is al- 
ways pronounced like n ; thus a77eAos {angel) is pronounced aw 
gelos, not aggelos. 


Every woi'd having a vowel or diphthong for the first letter is, 
irx most printed books, marked at the beginning either with an 
atipirate, or rough breathing, ('), as ^Ajos, {sun,) pronounced as 
if written Aelios ; or with a smooth one, ('), as eVt, (upon,) simply 
read epi. The former one of these breathings is only of necessarj' 
use, and may be considered as having the force of the English 
letter h. The aspirate is placed over f, and v when they stand at 
the beginning of a word; thus podov, [arose,) prononnced rhodon. 
[n diphthongs the breathing is placed over the second vowel ; 
thus vios, [a son,) pronounced why-os. When p is doubled, the 
last one takes the aspirate, as eppwa-o, pronounced errhoso. 

Words in Greek arC of eight kinds, called Parts of Speech; 
viz., Article, Noun, Pronoun, Verb, Par ticiplp., Adverb, Preposition, 
and Conjunction. 

The Article, Noun, Pronoun, and Participle, are declined with 
Gender, Number, and Case. 

There are three Genders ; the Masculine, Feminine and Neuter. 

There are two Numbers ; the S^'ugular, which speaks of one, as 
\eyos, a word; and the Plural, which speaks of more than one, as 
Koyoi, words. 

To these the Greeks added a third number, called the Dual, which only sp % of two, but 
this number was not much used, and is not found eitlier in tlie Septuajjint, or New Testa- 

There are five Cases; the Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusa- 
tive, and Vocative. 

The Article 6, v, to, generally answers to the definite article 
the in English. When no article is expressed in Greek, the Eng- 
lish indefinite article a is signified. Thus avdpwiros means a many 
or man in general ; and 6 auQpcairos, the man. It is thus declined :

TOlSy TaiS, TOIS, 

to the. 



TTJf, TO, 



Tovs, Tas, Ta, 


The Article has no vocative ; w, which sometimes precedes a 
noun in the vocative, is an Interjection. 

The xVrticle takes the consonant t in every Case, except in th® 
nom. sm. masc. and fern. 6, ■^, and in the nom. pi. masc. and fem. 
ol, at, where the r is superseded by the aspirate ('). 

The gen. pi. in all genders and in every declension, encis in au. 

The Personal or Primitive Pronouns are three; €70), /, plural 
Tjfjifts, we, of the first person ; av, thou, plural vfj.eis, you, of the 
second ; Gen. ov. he or she, plural (T<p€Ls, they, of the third. 

The Relative Pronouns are bs, t], 6, who, which, and ai/ros, avrij^ 
avTo, he, she, it, &c., &c., &c. 

To those wholly unacquainted with Greek, the foresoinp remarks will give some, thoufrn 
perhaps but little satisfaction. If a further knowledge is desired, the reader had better pro- 
cure a Grammar. A very Mod book to commence with has oeen published by Hagster .<j 
Sons, Loudon, entitled, " A Practical Guide lo the fiist Study of the Greek lestanieut," de- 
sianed for those who have uo kuowie*lge of the Ureek language.

t 1. Desert. This does not always mean an uninhabited rearion, but one comparatively 
barren, with a sparse popidation. See Joshua xv. 61, 62, where mention is made of "sis 
cities with their villages," in the wilderness. 3. Reform. The word "repent" does not 
express the force of the original ; which sif^nifies a change of character, a permanent altera- 
tion of the dispositions ana habits. The same remark may be applied to the noun of the. 
same meaning in verse 8. — Gannett. 2. Basileia means kingly power, authtirity, royal dignity, 
majesty, ^c, as well as kingdom, realm, or reign. The prophet Daniel uses kings anU king- 
doms R.^Tionymously, (Dan. ii. 44) ; so also the evangelists. See Matt. xxi. 5, 9 ; Mark xi. P, 
10; Lukexix. 83; John's mission was " to so before the face of the Lnrt, 
to prepare his ways," (Luke i. 76); and to point out the Messiah. See .I'lhn i. 6—8, 2!'—:;!,

that a man might swear with his lips, and annul it at the same moment in his heart. They 
also held that oaths are binding only according to the n.iture of tlie thin? by which a man 
swears; asserting that the law, which our Sav-.or here cites, referred to those oatiis only 
which were of a binding nature. Instances of this distinction, which they made between 
oaths that were and were not binding, are expressly cited and condemned by our Lord in 
Matt, xxiii. 10—23 ; and the injunction here given against swearing by Heaven, by Jerugalem, 
&c., is in relation to a variety of frivolous adjuratiooa which were constantly in their mouths,

inspect the man in private, before he was permitted to enter the temple to make an oblation.

tration : — "Cou>'T»T OF THE Gadabenes. — I Spent a night, and part of two days, in the vi- 
cinity ofthe Lake of Tiberias. My tent was pitched near the Hot Baths, about a mile south 
ofthe town of Tiberias, and, consequently, near the south end ofthe lake. In looking across 
the water to the other side, I- had before me the country of the Gadarenes, where the swine, 
impelled by an evil spirit, plunged into the sea. I was struck with a mark of accuracy in the 
sacred writers, which had never occurred to me till then. They state that 'the swine ran 
violently down the steep or precipice,* (the article being required by the Greek,) 'and 
were choked in the waters.' It is implied here, first, the hills in that region approach near 
the water ; and, secondly, that they fall off so abruptly along the shore, that it would be na- 
tural for a writer, familiar with that fact, to refer to it as well known. Both these implica- 
tions are correct. A mass of rocky hills overlook the sea on that side, so near the water, 
that one sees their dark outline reflected from its surfiice, while their sides, in general, are 
so steep, that a person familiar with the scenery would hardly think of speaking of a steep 
place or precipice, where so much of the coast forms but one continuous precipice. Our 
translators omit tne definite article, and show, by this inadvertence, how .■aaturaUy toe more 
exact knowledge ofthe Evangelists influenced their language."

H. B. Hackett, will fully illustrate this : — "la passinsr tkroug-h the fertile coutttrj' of the an- 
cient Philistines, on the south of Palestine, I asked the guide, one day, a native Syrian, \i 
he knew of a plant which was apt to make its appearance amon^ the wheat, and which re- 
sembled it so much that it could hardly be distinguished from it He replied that it was 
very common, and that he would soon show me a specimen of it. Soon after this ne pointed 
out to me some of this grass, growing near our p.nth ; and afterwards, having once seen it, 
I foimd it in almost every field where I searched for it. Except that the stalk wai not so 
high, it appeared otherwise precisely like wheat, just as the e:irs begin to show tlicmselves. 
and the kernels are swelling out into shape. I collected some specimens of this deceitfu' 
Reed and have found, on showing them to friends, that thev ^v© ttustakeu tbeui (juit* ia

open my mouth in

'declare things having 
"been hid from the be-

" He who sows the good

tetrarch of Galilee, in honor of Tiberius Caesar ; and to distinguish it from the sea-port town 
of Cesarea, mentioned frequently in the Acts ofthe Apostles, it was called Cesarea Philippi. 
See Josephus, Ant. xviii. 2, 1, ana xx. 8, 4. 1 18. 'Parkhurst says, "This expression 

•eems allusive to the form of the Jewish sepulchres, which were large subterraneous caves, 
with a narrow mouth or entrance, many of which are to be found in Judea, to this day. The 
iiXX render the corresponding phrase from the Heb. of Isa, xxxviii. 10, theaatea oftheaepuU 
chre. The full meaning of our Lord's promise seems to be, that his church on earth, how- 
ever persecuted and distressed, should never fail till the consummation of all things, and 
Bhould then, at the remirrection of the just, finally triumph over death and the grave." Com- 
pare I Cor. XV. 64, 5.5. 1 19. It is said, that when the Jews made a man a doctor of the 
law, they used to put into his hands the key of the closet in the temple, where the sacred 
books were deposited, and also tablets to write upon ; signifying that they gave him author-

when Jesus ended these 
WORDS, he departed from 
Galilee, and came into the

lowed him, and he cured 
their sick. 

3 And the *Pharisee3 
came to him, trying hira, 
and saying, | " Is it law- 
ful for a man to dismiss 
his WIFE for Any Cause?" 

4 And He answering, 
said to them, " Have you 
not read, That the Crea- 
tor, at the first, J made a 
male and a female ; 

5 and said, J 'On ac- 
count of this a man shall 
leave father and moth-

thou for any one, for 
thou lookest not to the

17 Tell us, therefore,

to pay Tax to Cesar, or

their wickedness, said, 
"Hypocrites! why do you 
try nie ? 

19 Show me the tax- 
coin." And THEY handed " 
hiin a Denarius.

25 Now, there were 
with us Seven Brothers; 
and the iirst, having 
married, died; and hav- 
ing no issue, left his wirE 

to his BKUTUKK. 

26 Thus also the sec- 
o^'D, and the thied, even 

to the SEVENTH. 

27 And last of all, the 
WOMAN also died. 

28 At tlie EESUKREC- 

TioN, therefore. To whieh 
of the SEVEN will she be 
a WIFE ? for they all mar- 
ried her." 

29 Jesus answering, 
said to them, "You err, 
not knowing the scrip- 
tures, nor the power of 
God ; 

30 for in the eesue- 
rection [state], they nei- 
ther marry, nor are given 
in marriage, but are as

God of the Dead, but of

at his TEACHING.

silenced the Sadducees,

3cws innocent of the blood shed durin.? nearly nine centuries of the most scandalous years 
of their history. Others think reference is here made to " Zechariah, the son of Bereehi&li 
and the grandson of Iddo," Zech. i. 1 ; of whose murder mention is made in the Targum. or 

Zechariah, the son ?f Hiddo. in the House of the Lord's sanctuary, because he endeavored to 
withdraw you from your lOviJ. ways ?'"' This Zechariah lived some 320 years after the one 
previously mentioned, yot :. -jeriod of over .5(XP years of Jewish history is left out. Were not 
the Jews more r-sponsiblcSr innocent blo(^d shed during thelast preceding five centuries 
of their histor;., than they could be for blood rhed hef jre the deluge ? Others are of opinion 
that Jesur spo! ? this nrophetically of that Zechariah who was massacred "in the middle o' 
the holy place," three" years before the final destruction of Jerusalem. Of him, Josephus 
cays, he was ajust man. Thus Abel was the iivst, and this Zechariah, the last just person, 
wbose blood being spilt upon the land, should be required of that generation. This view 
agrees with tho context, and recorded facts; and in agreement with the eaxae, ephoneusate, 
Gword in the first aorist tense, has been thrown into the future, instead of the past.

t 1. Virjftn signifies a chaste or pnre person, and is applied to both sexes in the sacred 
■writings. See Rev. xiv. It has been thought best to retain the word here. t 1. An 

eye-witness of a Hindoo marriage, gives the following striking illustration of this cus^ 
torn: — "The bride lived at Serampore, to which place the "bridegroom was to come by water. 
After waiting two or three hours, at length, near midnight, it was announced in the very 
vordsof Scripture, 'Behold, the bridegroom cometh ; go ye out to meet him.' All the per- 
sons employed now lighted their lamps, and ran with them in their hands to fill up their 
stations in the procession; seme of them had lost their light.'^, and were unprepared, but it 
was then to late to seek them, and the cavalcade moved forward to the house of the bride; 
at which place the Ci)mpany entered a large and splendidly illuminated area, before the 
house, covered with an awning, where a great mu'titude of friends, dressed in their best ap- 
parel, were seated upon mats. The bridegroom was carried in the arms of a friend, and 
placed in a superb seat in the midst of the company, where he sat a short time, and then 
went into the hon.=ie, the door of which was immediately shut, and guarded by sepoys. I 
and others expostulated with the door-keepers, but in vain. Never was I so struck with otu 
Lord's beautiful parable as at this moment — 'And the door was shut.' "

ones, render )to?a«tn ■aioniorm, everlasting' pUBishment, conveying' the idea, as generally inter- 
preted, of 6a«ino«, torment. Kolasi'ii iji its various forms only occn*-s in three other places 
in the New Testament,— Acts iv.i21; 2 Peter ii.9; 1 John iv. 1S„ It is derived from kolazoo, 
•which signifies, 1. T»cvtoff; as lopping off branches of trees, to prune. 2. To restrain, to 
repress. The Greeks •write, — "The charioteer (kalazei) resti-ains nis flery steeds." 3. r» 
■chastise, to punieh. To cut off an indvvdual from life, or society, or eren to restrain, is es. 
teemed as pTinisbment ; — hence has arisen this third metaphorical use ofthe word. The pri- 
mary signification has been adopted, because it agrees better with the -second member of^the 
sentence, thus preserving the force au-» beauty ofthe antithesis. The righteous go to life^ 
the wicked to the c!t«ijijr o#' from life, or d«flw. See 2 Thess. i. 9o

t 6. The sacred treasury for th« gifts which had been vowed to the temple. It was as 
Hamed from Corbao, « gift. See Mark vii. 11. ^ It was a large chest with a hole in the lid, 
and it Ktood in the court of the altar, on the right side as yea face the house of the Lord, 
See 2 i£in3r« Jrii. 9. This chest was out of the reach of those who brought tlieir money to it. 
Ihey delivered their money to the priest, who iilaced it in the chest. Hence Judas, when 
)iis itoney was refused, had to throw it on to the ground. The Corbanaii, or chest in the 
eourt o( the altar, must be distinguished from the gaznphulakion^ the treasury, mentioned in 
Mark xil. 41, and John viii. 20. This was a name given to the court of the women, because 
therein were placed chests for voluntary gifts to the temple. They were there placed be- 
cause the crowd was greatest in that court; and it was into these chests that a Jew could 
drop a gift eop-ivat^lv that his left hand should not know what his right did.— i". Sharpe, 
•t 7. It was just without the wall of Jerusalem, south of mount Zion, and was originally 
Called ttie potter's field, because it furnished a sort of clay suital)le for potter's ware. Acel- 
dama, as late as the seventeenth century, was used as a burving-place by the Armenian 
Christians m Jerusalem. But according to Robinson, it has long been abandoned fc sepul- 
chral purposes. It is not fenced in, and the charnel house, now a ruin, is all that remains 
to point out the site. t 7. The article is significant in the original, thoucrh our Lan-

+ 9. This quotation from the prophet has greatly puzzled the critics. The passage is not 
found in Jeremiah ; and only something very like it m Zechariaii, Several solutions of th* 
difficulty have been offered. 1. A corruption of tiie names arising from MS. abbreviations j 
e. g., some copyist mistaking Zmi,, Zechariah, for Ion, Jeremiah. 2. That Mattliew simply 
wrote, tAroitoA the prophet,omXtt\i\^, as he often did, the name of the prophet The ancient 
Syrianand Persian versions omitthe name, and someGreek MSS.,but a largfl majority of 
jiSS. insert it. 8. Mede and Kidder suppose that Jeremiah in the first inst;mce wrote the 
chapter from which these words are taken, as well as the two former, and that the Evan, 
pelist was influenced by this opinion. 4. Whitby says, "We know, from Jerome, that there 
was still extant in his time, an apocryphal book of the prophet Jeremiah, In which waa 
founa every letter of the words quoted by Matthew." Dr. Gaussen, remarks on this:—" We 
know also that the Second Book of Maccabees (ii. 1—9) relates many of the actions end 
words ol Jeremiah, which are taken from another book than that of his canonical prophe- 
cies. Wli.v.then.might notthe words quoted by the evangelist have been pronouncea really 
by_ Jeperaiah, and have remained in the memory of the Church to the days of Zechariah, who 
might then have again given them a place theopneustically in holy Scripture, (as is the case 
with the unwritten wordj of Enoch, quoted in the Epistle of Jude, (verses 14 and 15.) or th* 
unwritten words of Jesus Christ, quoted by St. Paul in the Book of Acts P (xx. 35. J Wha» 
confirms this supposition is, that part only of the words quoted by St. Matthew are found in 
Zechariah. Besides.itis known tnatthis prophet was ford ofrecnlling the words of Jere^ 
miah. (See Zech. i. 4, and Jer. xviii. 11 ; Zech.iii.8, and Jcr.xxiii.5.) t 16. Some 

very ancient authorities cited bvOrigen. read "Jesus, the son of Abbas;* which Michjeli- 
says is undoubtedly tlie original reading. The word "Jesus" was omitted m later copies, 
in honor to the name.

t 27. The palace ofthe Roman jgovemor was so called. But here the court-yard in front 
ofthe Praetorium seems meant. The B'^nian Prsetorlum had been Herod's palace. It stood 
to the west ofthe temple. The road from the Praforium entered the temple by a bridge over 
the valley at the south-west comer. t 28. The color distinguished it as suitable for a 

man of high rank in the army ; but in shape the clamt/a was the same for the emperor and 
for the common soldier. This was put on him to ridicule his pretensions to the title of a 
king. t 29. It does not appear, that this crown was intended to torture his head, but 

rather to mock his claim to royalty. Dr. Clarke s ys, " Mark. chap. xv. 17 ; and John, chap. 
xi.\. b, term it stephanon akanthinon, which may very well be translated an ^lteanthine ercwn, 
or wreath formed out ofthe branches ofthe herb acanthus, or bear's foot. This, however, is 
a prickly plant, thougrh nothing like thorns, in the common meaning of that word.' 
+ 35. The clause found in the Common Version, "that it might be fulfilled which was spokeo 
by th£ prophet, 'Thev parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast 
lots; " IS found in comparatively few MSS., and has no jjace in the ancient versions.

to the first day of the 
\Veek, Mary of Magdala, 
and the other Mary, 
went to see the tomb. 

2 And, behold, a great 
Shaking occurred; for an 
Angel of the Lord descend- 
ing from Heaven, came 
and rolled back the stoke ; 
and sat upon it.

ance was like Liehtniug, 
and his \estments white 
as Snow ; 

4 and from fear of him 
the nuAEDs trembled, and 
became as Dead men. 

5 And the angel an- 
swering, said to the wo- 
men, '■ I3e not gou afraid; 
for I know That you seek

6 He is not here ; for he 
has been raised, even as 
he said. Come, see the 
PLACE M'here *he lay. 

7 And immediately go 
and tell his disciples 
That he has been raised 
from the dead ; and, be- 
hold, I he precedes you to 
Galilee; there you will 
see Hini; behold, I have 
told you." 

8 And coming out im- 
mediately from the tomb, 
with I'ear and great Jov, 
they ran to tell his dis-

met them, saying, " Re- 
joice!" And THEY having

T 21. Doadridge remarks, "Our manner of rendering these words. Me ia besides himself, or 
He is mad, is very offensive. One can hardly think Christ's friends would speak so con- 
temptibly and impiously of him; and if that sense must necessarily be retained, it would be 
mucn more decent to render the cl.ause. It (that is, the multitude,) is mad, thus unseasonably 
to break in upon him." Schotengen contends, that the multitude, and not Christ is here in- 
tended. Christ was in the house: the multitude, ochlos, verse 20, went out, krateenai auton. 
to restrain it, (viz. ochlon, the multitude.) to prevent them from rushing iuto the house and 
disturbingtheir Master, who was taking some refreshment. This conjecture should not 
be lightly regarded.— CJarAe.

and are now often resorted to as places of shelter for the night. Sometimes the wandering

Jay, as executioner?. t 28. Note here, that very remarkable seems the providence of 

God, in avenging the death of this holy man upon Tlerod, Herodias, and her daughter. For 
1st, As the war betwixt Herod and Arctas kingof Petr^a was caused by Herod's wicked con- 
tract with Herodias to reject the dausrhter of Aretas, his lawful wife, and to marry with 
Herodiass, his brother Philip's wife; so J osephug declares that the Jews looked upon the 
putting John to death, as the cause of the miscarriage of Herod's army ; '* God being angry 
with him for the death of John the Bapt'st." 2dly, Herodias envying the glory of king Ag 
rippa, who had that honour given him by Oaius, prevailed with her husband to go to Rome 
and accuse Agrippa; whereupon Caiui deprived Herod of his government, and her of he- 
money; and gave them both to Agrippa, banishing Herod and Herodias to Lyons in Franco 
"which (says Josephus) was done in punishment of her envy, and of his readiness to he;;r 
ken to her solicitations," And 3dly, of her daughter it is related, that she going over the i( .4 
in wintei, the ice broke, and she slir ped in to the head, which at last was severed from hcp 
body by the sharpness of the ice, God reauiring her head for that of the Baptist's she desi- 
red; which, if true, was a wonaerful providence.— FFAifiy.

Bame time exhibit in a clear light the profligacy, superstition, and casuistry of the Jews. A 
man of Beth-Horon had made a vow, and declared that his father shouldreap no benefit from 
his property. Afterwards, on the occasion of bis son's marria^^e, he wished to invite his 
father tt the entertainment ; and, to evade the obligation of his vow, he transferred his right 
and property in the room and feast to a friend, who was en?a;rod to invite his father. This, 
however, wa'' >udg&d to be unlawful, unless he had transferred entirely and trul v this part o 
his property \,o his friend, without interposinff any condition with respect to the invitatio* 
of his father, whom he was bound by all means not to profit. How can w« be surprised '

' 1 13. That Jesus had a right to gather figs from this tree, if there had been any open it, 
appears from the law of Moses, mentioned in Deut. xxiii 24, 25. Jusephus alluding to this 
iaw, mentions ripe fruits in general, not grapes and corn only. His words are — "Let not 
passengers, (whether natives or strangers,) be hindered from touching the ripe fruits. Let 
ftiem be permitted to fill themselves with them, but not to carry any awiy." That some ripo 
fi ,'3 might be expected on fig-trees at that time of the year will appear, says Pearc*, from the 
following considerations; — "Jesus went up to this fig-tree on the 11th day of the month N i- 
Ban, i. e. three days before the Passover, which was always on the l4th day of it. *On the 
morrow after theSabbith' which followed the Passover, "the flrst-ftniits were to be ofi"ered to 
God in the temple." Lev. xxiii. 11. The leaves on the tree indicated that summer was nigh. 
Hatt.xxiv.3-2, and that fruit might be reasonably expected, especially as the fig-tree sho'its 
forth its fruit before the leaves. If, therefore, the tree bore figs, now was the perioo to tinu 
and eat them. t 13. That is, the season for gathering them. t 14. Some cavillers 

•bject to this miracle of our Savior, and ask. What right had he to destroy this fig-tree J In 
answer, observe, that the tree was evidently barren, and therefore of no use to any one t chat 
It could hxrdly he private propertv.forit was on thepublicroad; and that it was Btatto the 
means of inculcatmg a great moral truth on the minds of his disciples.

t i-. The Jews, whose religious system was theocracy, were of opinion, that they could not, 
•onsistently with their alle^:ance to God their king, comply with pajing an acknowledgment 
of subordination to an earthly sovereign. Judas of Gahlee was the first who endeavored to 
persuade the Jews of the unlawfulness of paying tribute to a foreign potentate. See Jose- 
phtis Ant. xviii.l, an(? B. J. ii. 12. The primitive Christiana also helda eimilar opinion, and 
fondly thought, that their suhiection to Jesus Christ exempted them from all allegiance to 
the power of the magistrate. This idea is the proper clue to lead us to aright understandina 
of all those passages in the epistolary writings of the New Testament, which relate to oivtt

+ 1. Josephus says that the stones with which Herod built the temple, were "of a white 
and firm substance," and that "every one of them was about twenty-five cubits in length, 
eight in heighth, and twelve in breadth." A cubit was nearly twenty-two inches of our 
measure. t 2. How exactly this prediction wasfulfilled may be known from Josephus. 

— Mesavs, Casar ordered the soldiers to d'g up the whole city and the temple; bu* to leave 
three of the highest turrets standing; and a part of the wall, as a security to the garrison. 
But they so entirely dug up andlevelled all the rest of the city, that none who saw it, would 
ehinK It to have ever been inhabited." Eleazar, in his animated speech to his countrvmen, 
thus exclaims: "'Whereis that great city, the metropolis of the Jewish people, defended by 
«uch walls and such mighty towers ? Where is that city, which was thought tobe inhabited 
by God ? It is torn up from its foundations; and the only memorial that remains otlt, is 
the camp ofits destroyers, which is stationed in the ruins." It is also related in theTaanith 
ofJlaimonides, that accordingtoEoman custom, thevery foundations of the temple were 
dug up, ano that T. Eufus, a Roman commander, carriedaploughoverthem. t d. From 

this spot the whole of Jerusalem was spread before the eye; and its situation, lorm, build* 
ings, ooundaries, and diflierent parts, distinctly and individually seen; more 'especial} 
Mount ii-oriah and Solomon's Temple, together with its spacious area.

t 15. The peculiar construction of Eastern houses is here referred to. They were all of 
the same heighth, so that a person could walk at the top of a range of buildings, without 
inconvenience, from one end to the other. In Palestine *i:sf are still built on this plan. A 
staircase is carried on the outside from the top of the hous^e'to the bottom. The injunction 
in this verse is delivered in a figure, expressive of great eagerness and expedition ; so th:it 
if a man was walking on the. roof, he was directed to go straight forwards, till he got out ol 
the city ; and not to delay even to go down into the house io *ake the most necessary articles 
of food and raiment for his flight.

with her a^cut three 
Months, ana returned to 
her HOUSE.

was fulfilled ; and she 
brought forth a Son. 

58 And her NEiGHBOKS

the Lord had magnified 
his MERCY towards her;

were about to call liini 
Zachariah, after the namb

" There is no one among

tablet, he wrote, saying, 
t"llis name is John." 
And they all wondered, 

64 X for his MorxH was 
instantly opened, and his 
TOXGUE loosed; and he 
spoke, praising God. 

65 And Fear came on 
ALL their neighbors. 
And All these thinos were 
talked of through All the

of Judea. 

66 And All those 
hearing, pondered theiu 
in their heaets, saying, 

t 59. Not before that day, because the mother was unclean seven days, Lev.xfi.l, 2 ; and 
so was the chui, by touching her, and therefore he was not then fit to be admitted into cove- 
nant. The law appointedno certa'.n place in which circumcision was to be done, nor any 
certain person to perform it, and therefore it was sometimes done by women, Exod. iv.2.5, 
and here in the house of Elizabeth, as appears by her presence at it, verse 60, The Jews did 
it sometimesin the'r schools, for the sake of the number of the witnesses. Then also they 
«a/ne(Z the infant; because, when God instituted circumcision, he changeathe nanies o| 
Abraham and Sarah.— TJ'Ai^fij*. Among the Jews, the child was named when it was circum- 
cised, and ordinarily the name of the father was given to the first-born son.— ^. Clarke.

while they were there, 
the DATS of her delivery 
were accomplished.

forth her riRST-BOR.N son,

t 1. Oikoumenee literally means the inhabited earth, and is applied in this place, by some 
recent translators, to the Roman Empire. But as no historian mentions a.(;eneralcensa» at 
,this time, the meaning of the word must be restricted to the land of Judea, where this en- 
rollment took place. Oikoumenee is used by Luke in chap. xxi. 26, and Acts xi. 28, and ap- 
plied in this restricted sense. t 7. Wetsein has shown from a multitude of instances, 
that pAafnfe means not merely the mani^er, hut the whole «fa6Ze. The room for guests being 
already full, Joseph and Mary retired to a more homely receptacle, called » ttabulum, the 
middle of which afforded room for cattle, and the sides accommodation forpersons. It was 
not properly a stable, but was formed for the convenient lodging of both men and cattle. 
Bishop Pearce, however, has a note on this verse, which is worthy of consideration. Ha 
says, " Upon the whole, it seems to me probable, that Mary was delivered in & guest-chamber, 
or lodging -room, (whetherit were in a public house, or that of some friend, is not said,) in 
some chamber of a house, andnot of astable; and that then, for want of a bed in that^uMt- 
chamber, wherein to lay her Son Jesus, she made use of one ot the Eastern mangers, made 
of coarse cloth, and fastened, like our seamen's hammocks, to some part of the chamber • 
whereshe was; andtherelaidhim, as having no other placefor him. This afforded a cir- 
cumstance by which the shepherds were directed to find him out, and distinguish this holy 
babe from all others. See verses 12, 16."

"You will certainly relir 
me to this pkovkkb, 'P1i\ - 
sician, cure thyself; what 
things ws have' heard has 
been done in Capkrnauji, 
do also here in thy own 


24 But he said, " Indeed 
I say to you, X 'i'hnt no 
Prophet is acceptable in 


25 But in Truth I say to 
you, :j: There were Many 
Widows in Iskakl, in the 
days of Elijah, wlien the 
UKAVEN was closed thr^e 
Years and six JIontLo, so 
that tiif-c Canie a great 
Far.vliic over All the land ; 

26 and yt-t to no one of 
them M'as Elijah sent, but 
to a "Widow Woman, at 
Sarepta, of Si don. 

27 + And there were 
Many Lepers in Israel, 
in [the days] of Elisha the 
PROPHET, and yet no one 
of them were cleansed, but 
Naaman, the Syrian." 

28 And all in the syn- 
agogue hearing these 
words, were tilled with 
Wrath ; 

29 and rising up, they 
drove him out of the city' 
and led him even to the 
tBrow of the mou:stain 
on which their city was 
built, to throw him down ; 

30 but HE, J passing 
through the Midst of them, 
went away. 

31 i And he came down 
to Capernaum, a City of 
Galilee, and taught them 
on the sabbath. 

33 And they were struck 
with awe at his mode of 
instruction ; % For his 
word was with Authority. 

33 t Kow there was a 
Man in the synagogue, 

t 29. Behind the Maronite church is a steep precipice, forty or fifty feet high, " on the 
brow of the hill;" the very one, it maybe, over which the people of Isazarpth attempted to 
thrust the Savior, on the Sabbath when they took such offence at his preaching in the syna- 
gogue. I observed other rocky Icdijes, on other parts of the hill, so precipitous that a person 
could not be thrown over them without almost certain destruction. A worthless tradition 
has transferred this event to a hill about two miles to the south-east of the town. But 
there is no evidence that Nazareth ever occupied a different site from the present one ; and 
that a mob so e.xasperated, whose object was to put to death the object of taeir rage, should 
have repaired to so distant a place for that purpose, is entirely incredible. — Hackett,
