bracing the Hebrew Text, with a new literal version. By George BUSH, Professor of Hebrew and Oriental Literature in the New York City University. New York, 1838. 8vo.

This work will be very useful to Biblical Students, who commence their Hebrew Studies with the Book of Psalms. "In the literal version appended to the original text, the words of the established translation have been always retained, wherever they appeared to be the most suitable; no departures being made from it with a view to greater elegance or euphony. The notes are designed principally to elucidate the force, import and pertinency, of the words and phrases of the original, by the citation of parallel instances, and to throw light upon the images and allusions of the sacred writers by reference to the customs, manners, laws, geography, &c. of the east." (Andover Biblical Repository, vol. v. p. 239.)

130*. Les Psaumes de David, traduits par M. Dargaud. Paris, 1838. 8vo.

This is a faithful and elegant version of the Psalms, the author of which (a member of the Romish communion) has not confined himself to a mere translation of the Latin Vulgate version, but has consulted the Hebrew Text, besides availing himself of several previous modern translations. In some of his interpretations of the Messianic Psalms, he coincides with Bishop Horsley.

This Covenant was performed for seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks, till the birth of Messiah, when the sceptre departed, and the Covenant was suspended by the Romans taking possession of the land. The Covenant was "confirmed with many for one week," when the Jews ejected the Romans for seven years previous to their final destruction.

Mr. Noyes's translation of the Hebrew Prophets is now completed in 3 vols. Svo. Boston, 1833-1837. The notes are very brief; but it is to be regretted "that some things are to be found in them, which show that Mr. Noyes has a very low opinion of the inspiration of the Bible, and which will preclude a large class of readers from obtaining much instruction from what is really valuable."

Professor Hengstenberg has long been known in Germany, as one of the ablest and most learned defenders of orthodox and pious Christianity, against the unhallowed and rash criticisms of the modern neologians of that country. The first volume contains the general introduction, Messianic prophecies in the Pentateuch and in the Psalms, the Godhead of the Messiah in the Old Testament, the proofs of a suffering and atoning Messiah, &c., and the Messianic prophecies in Isaiah. The second volume embraces the seventy weeks of Daniel and the book of Zechariah; and the third comprises the Messianic productions in Hosea, Joel, Amos, Haggai, Malachi, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel.

This volume corresponds with the first volume of Dr. Hengstenberg's original treatise. "The translator has accomplished his work in a faithful and scholarlike manner." (Andover Biblical Repository, Oct. 1836, p. 504.) It is to be hoped that Dr. Keith will be encouraged to complete his arduous and valuable undertaking.

"In the first volume of this work, Mr. Penn has revised with considerable diligence the authorized version, in the hope that he may put every English reader in possession of the pure text free from all spurious accretions, and adapted to the level of minds least practised and disposed to attention and reflection.' The second volume consists of a preface, concerning some of the most fruitful sources of error in ancient MSS. and the principles on which the present revision has been made; a reprint of a tract of I. L. Hug on the Antiquity of the Codex Vaticanus; the paramount authority of that MS. being asserted by Mr. Penn; and a body of original annotations confined chiefly to the elucidation of the text, and the grounds of its departure from the received version; the perusal of which cannot fail to give the reader a high opinion of the diligence, candour, and piety of the author."

2 vols. 12mo.

This work forms Vols. V. and XII. of the Edinburgh Biblical Cabinet. The learned author, Professor Tholuck, has had the distinguished honour of standing foremost among the defenders of ancient orthodoxy against the modern neologians of Germany: and "the Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans is the most important work which has hitherto proceeded from his pen. The universal approbation it has received from the friends of evangelical truth, and the fierce hostility with which it has been assailed by the rationalist party in Germany," (where, notwithstanding, it has passed through many editions,)" afford the most satisfactory evidence of its distinguished worth." (Translator's preface, p. xii.) Professor Stuart, in the preface to his admirable work on the epistle to the Romans (p. vii.), has expressed the highest approbation of Dr. Tholuck's labours, to which he acknowledges himself "most of all indebted." The purchaser of Professor Stuart's work will find it desirable to study Dr. T.'s Exposition in connection with it. The translator has ably performed his difficult task, and has enriched the volume with an instructive preface.

As Mr. Haldane had commented rather severely on Dr. Tholuck, the translator of the professor's Exposition in 1838 published an "Answer to Mr. Robert Haldane's Strictures," in 8vo. Tholuck rejects the horribile decretum of Calvin, which Mr. Haldane fully receives. Mr. Menzies has temperately replied to his strictures. 107*.

The Apostolical Authority of the Epistle to the Hebrews: an Inquiry, in which the received Title of the Epistle is vindicated against the cavils of Objectors, ancient and modern, from Origen to Sir J.

By the Rev. Charles FORSTER, B.D. London, 1838. 8vo.

In Vol. IV. of the Introduction to the Critical Study of the Scriptures, pp. 409-422. the genuineness and apostolical authority of St. Paul's Epistle to the Hebrews have been proved by a selection of the most striking evidences, both external and internal: but it has been reserved for the learned author of this work to demonstrate that apostolical authority by a mass of argument and evidence, not more original than ingenious and delightful to the Biblical Student, who will attentively study his volume. Having refuted the cavils of ancient and modern objectors, from Origen to Michaelis, the author proceeds to adduce his evidence in fourteen sections: in which he shows the identity of manner between the epistle to the Hebrews and St. Paul's undisputed epistles in the use of particular words, and gives copious tables:-1. of the New Testament words peculiar to the epistle to the Hebrews, and the undisputed epistles of St. Paul, as well as, 2. of words peculiar to the epistle to the Hebrews, (which are not found elsewhere, either in the New Testament, the Septuagint, or the Apocrypha,) with their parallel verbal dependencies; and 3. of words occasionally occurring elsewhere in the New Testament, but in the manner, the frequency, of their occurrence, peculiar to the epistle to the Hebrews and the undisputed epistles of St. Paul. The author then institutes an examination of some leading parallel passages from the epistle to the Hebrews and St. Paul's undisputed epistles; and shows the identity of manner between that epistle and the undisputed epistles of the apostle in the use of favourite words, in the habit of going off at a word,' in the use of the paronomasia or play upon words, in quotations and modes of quotation from the Old Testament, in the use of key-texts. A copious table of the harmony of parallel passages between the epistle to the Hebrews and the undisputed epistles of St. Paul, is then subjoined. Having thus proved the Pauline original of the Epistle to the Hebrews from internal evidence, the learned author advances to a re-examination of the external evidences, including the testimonies of the apostolical fathers and those of Pantænus, Clemens Alexandrinus, and Origen; and adduces a powerful argument in proof that by the epistle of St. Paul, referred to in

2 Peter, iii. 15, 16., the epistle to the Hebrews is intended, which 232. The opening of the Sealed Book in the Apocalypse shown argument is deduced from the internal marks of reference to He- to be a Symbol of the future Republication of the Old Testament. brews by St. Peter in both his epistles. In an appendix are given By Richard Newton ADAMS, D.D. London, 1838. 8vo. tables of words occurring only once in the epistle to the Hebrews and in the undisputed epistles of St. Paul, as well as of Pauline words occurring in more than one epistle, and not occurring in the epistle to the Hebrews. The irresistible conclusion from the whole of the author's elaborate researches is, that that epistle is the genuine production of the great apostle of the Gentiles.

Christ: with a Commentary consisting of Short Lectures for the
Daily Use of Families. By the Rev. Charles GIRDLESTONE, M. A.
London, 1832-35. 2 vols. 8vo.

The plan of these two most valuable practical expositions of the Old and New Testaments is the same. The text of the sacred writers is" divided into sections, forming with the commentary a lesson of a convenient length for a single service. The explanatory matter is so digested as to complete, together with the text, exactly two pages; such topics being selected as may best serve the purpose of devotional edification at the hour of family worship. All controversial doctrines, all abstruse theories, and all learned discussions are carefully avoided; while the capacities and wants of an ordinary domestic circle, comprising for the most part the reEr-lations of master and servant, of parent and child, are kept steadily in view." (Christian Remembrancer, May 1832. vol. xiv. p. 280.)

Twenty-three passages of the New Testament are here illustrated from ancient marbles, coins, &c. Some examples of the aid to be derived from these remains of antiquity, as collateral testimonies to the credibility of the Sacred Writers and also as a source of Interpretation, will be found in Vol. I. pp. 88-92 and 350, 351.

145. Prophecy, Types, and Miracles, the great Bulwarks of Christianity: or, a Critical Examination and Demonstration of some of the Evidences, by which the Christian Faith is supported. By the Rev. Edward THOMPSON, M.A. London, 1838. 8vo.

The object of this truly valuable work is to add to the Evidences of Christianity demonstrations of its Divine Origin from the fulfilment of Prophecy, the close adaptation of Types to their Antitypes, and the reality of Miracles. The work is therefore divided into three distinct parts-Prophecy, Types, and Miracles; each of which has received a separate consideration. Under the first head (Prophecy) the author has selected the most eminent of those which relate to the Messiah: these he has placed in juxta-position with their fulfilment, with the requisite explanations. The most remarkable facts also in the biblical narratives, which ancient and modern divines have accounted to be typical of the Messiah, have also been brought out into antitypical detail; and, as a summary to the whole, the veracity of the miracles has been established by external and

internal circumstances.

While this sheet was passing through the press, the Rev. Robert WHITFORD, M.A., issued a prospectus of a Concordance to the Greek Scriptures, on the basis of Tromm's Concordance to the Septuagint and of Schmidt's Concordance to the Greek Testament, but with such improvements and corrections as to constitute it a new work. The work, thus announced, will form a complete and comprehensive Concordance, or Index, to the Greek Text of the Sacred Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, together with the Apocrypha, embracing not only the Version of the Seventy, as represented in the Oxford Text of Holmes and Parsons, with all noticeable variations of the Vatican and Alexandrian editions, but the Fragments extant of the Hexapla of Origen, collected, after Montfaucon, by Bahrdt. This concordance, the editor expects, will be comprised in one volume imperial octavo.

4. The Englishman's Greek Concordance to the New Testament: being an Attempt at a verbal connexion between the Greek and the English Texts. [Edited by George V. WIGRAM.] London, 1839. royal 8vo.

This concordance is made upon the basis of the work of Erasmus Schmidt: the preface of the editor states that it contains six hundred and nineteen examples which Schmidt had omitted, beside correcting a still greater number of errata. The Englishman's Greek Concordance' is an alphabetical arrangement of every word in the Greek New Testament. Immediately after each Greek word follows the series of passages in which it occurs: these are given in quotations from the authorized English translation. Throughout each series, italic letters are used to mark the word or words which correspond to the Greek word under consideration. The citations VOL. II. 4 Q

This is the latest as it is the most complete edition of the Concordances hitherto published for the Latin Vulgate Version of the Bible. It is one of the most beautiful specimens of typography, which ever issued from the Parisian press.

This map is executed in the same style of elegance and with the same accuracy as Mr. Mimpriss's map for illustrating the gospel history. It deserves, and it is to be hoped that it will receive, a patronage not inferior to that, which has been deservedly bestowed upon his first map.
