Page 1 - Ethiopic bears a special resemblance, has, in modern times, a great variety of dialects, as a spoken language, and is spread over a vast extent of country. But, so far as we are acquainted with its former state, it appears more anciently to have been principally limited to Arabia and Ethiopia.
Page v - Gesenius' great work is incorporated in it. In regard to the plan of the work, he does not profess to be a mere translator of Gesenius, whose grammar is too large for common use ; but he has adopted the general method of this writer, as his model. He has made a diligent use of him for the purpose of information. In some cases he has seen reason, as he believes, to differ from him, especially in regard to arrangement ; but not in any important matter. Whoever will take the trouble to compare, will...

Page 3 - Hebrew language in 1G11 had been a dead language for more than two thousand years, and though these men (the forty-seven translators aforesaid) were renowned for their piety and learning, yet very few, if any of them, were competent to so important a task. In fact, the Hebrew language may be said only to have been recovered within the last century by modern Orientalists : and from the...
Page 5 - The origin of the Hebrew language must be dated farther back than the period, to which we can trace the appellation Hebrew. It is plain, from the names of persons and places in Canaan, that, wherever Abraham sojourned, he found a language in which he could easily converse, viz., the Hebrew or Phoenician language.
Page 12 - Hebrew was ret.uiied, both in writing and conversation ; or in writing, after it ceased to be the language of conversation, it is impossible to determine. The coins, stamped in the time of the Maccabees, are all the. oriental monuments we have, of the period that elapsed between the latest canonical writers, and the advent of Christ; and the inscriptions on these are in Hebrew. At the time of the Maccabees, then, Hebrew was probably understood, at least, as the language of books ; perhaps, in gome...
Page 12 - Hebraeo-Aramaean, as it was spoken, in the time of our Saviour. From the time when Hebrew ceased to be vernacular, down to the present day, a portion of this dialect has been preserved in the Old Testament. It has always been the subject of study among learned Jews. Before and at the time of Christ, there were flourishing Jewish academies at Jerusalem ; especially under Hillel and Shammai. After Jerusalem was destroyed, schools were set up in various places, but particularly they flourished at Tiberias,...
Page 5 - ... was the author of some other political pieces of a similar description. Among the crimes of this man were the calumnies with which he assailed the character of the queen of France.
Page 2 - Aramaean dialect, such as was spoken in the time of our Saviour among the Jews. The West Aramaean had flourished before this for a long time in the east and north of Palestine ; but it now advanced farther west, and during the period that the Christian churches of Syria flourished, it was widely extended. It is at present almost a dead language, and has been so for several centuries. The Hebrew may be regarded as having been a dead language, except among a small circle of literati, for about the...
