THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW,

For AUGUST, 1811.

Art. I. The Book of Job; translated from the Hebrew, by the late Miss

Elizabeth Smith, Author of Fragments in Prose and Verse. With a Preface and Annotations, by the Rev. T. Randolph, D. D. Second Edition, 8vo. pp. 207, Price 7s. Cadell and Davies, Hatchard. 1810. THERE is, perhaps, no part of the Bible that has excited

the pen of sacred criticism more frequently, than the very singular and exquisitely sublime poem before us. A venerable shade of obscurity is thrown equally over its author, its language, and its train of imagery; and a hallowed curiosity has hence been evinced in all ages to dive into the gloom, and enucleate its difficulties. Hence almost every nation, independently of its general interpreters of sacred writ, has to boast of a multitude of monogrummists upon the book of Job, (if we may be allowed to employ a term which has hitherto been limited to natural history, who, by confining their attention to this work alone, have endeavoured to put the public into possession of its full history and meaning. Of this description of critics, the best writers on the continent are--Luis de Leon of Spain, the two Schultenses of Holland, and Vogel and Reiske of Germany, the last of whom would have been by far the best qualified for the work, if he had not unfortunately laboured under an irresistible propensity to be perpetually innovating upon the Hebrew text.

In our own country, we have been peculiarly rich in the same class of writers; and that both in prose and verse. The verse-translators are Sandys and Scott; with the former of whom, it may be sufficient to observe, thai Johnson was so highly pleased, as to have selected his poem as one of the standard authorities for his Dictionary. As a whole it possesses, indeed, a considerable degree of merit; though it is rather a merit that flashes occasionally upon the sight, than Vol. VII.
