עמוד 237 - I shall see him, but not n'ow; I shall behold him, but not nigh; There shall come a Star out of Jacob, And a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, And shall smite the corners of Moab, And destroy all the children of Sheth.
עמוד 235 - These targums are of great use for the better understanding not only of the Old Testament on which they are written, but also of the New. As to the Old Testament they serve to vindicate the genuineness of the present Hebrew text, by proving it to be the same that was in use when these targums were made, contrary to the opinion of those who think the Jews corrupted it after our Saviour's time.
עמוד 242 - Xoyof, or Word, in that sense in which we find it expressed in the first chapter of the Gospel of St. John.

עמוד 341 - A firm persuasion had prevailed among a great many, that it was contained in the ancient sacerdotal books, that about this time it should come to pass that the East should prevail ; and that those who should come out of Judea, should obtain the empire of the world.
עמוד 231 - The targums of Onkelos and Jonathan are in so great esteem among the Jews, that they hold them to be of the same authority with the original sacred text ; and, for the support of this opinion, they feign them to have come from Mount Sinai in the same manner, as they say their oral law did, and tell...
עמוד 213 - ... them into Canaan. The reason of this was, in Egypt they all lived together in the land of Goshen ; but on their being carried captive by the Babylonians, they were dispersed all over Chaldea and Assyria, and being there intermixed with the people of the land, had their main converse with them, and therefore were forced to learn their language; and this soon induced a disuse of their own among them ; by which means it came to pass, that after their return the common people, especially those of...
