ART. I. Poetical Parts of the Old Testament, newly translated from
the Hebrew. Wish Notes Critical and Explanatory. By William Green, M. A. Rector of Hardingham in Norfolk, and formerly Fellow of Clare-Hall in Cambridge. 410, 6s, fewed. Dodley. 1781. . THE learned and ingenious Author pursues the track of
Į Dr. Hare with respect to the metre of the original Hebrew; and is so firmly persuaded of the truth of the Bishop's hypothesis, that he doubts not but that the Hebrew text; if we had it as perfect as when it came out of the hands of the composers, would as readily fall into that metre, as the Æneid of Virgil, printed as prole, would fall into hexameters. - We think, however, that this assertion is too unqualified : and we consider the hypothesis on which it is founded too dangerous to be admitted; because in all places where the metre according to the supposed ftructure of it in Dr. Hare's scheme of Hebrew poetry is impere fed, it is left to mere arbitrary conjecture to supply the deficiency. -Mr. Green, however, considers this matter in' an opposite point of view; and argues its utility from what we look on as its uncertainty and danger. "In some instances, says he, the metre points out the corruption of the text, and at the same time the way to restore it.'. Our Author's opinion of the col. lection of Hebrew MSS. will appear from the following declarations : In the few places I have consulted them, I must own they have not afforded me the facisfaction I expected from them. They have, however, done one thing most effectually, which is worth all the thousands they have cost the Public in collating them; that is, they have delivered us from the shackles of the Hebrew verity. And though they may not answer the Yol. LXVIII.
high expectations we may have formed of them, yet we may hope some genius may arise, who will strike out such elucidations of Scripture from them, as are in vain to be expected from the present text. A large field; however, is, in our Author's opinion, still left for conjectural criticism ; for, as to the omission of clauses or. päiods, or the transpofition of them, this is not, he imagines; to be expected from the MSS. His meaning is, that defects of this sort cannot be rectified by collation; they must be. supplied by conjecture. As a specimen of our Author's talent in this line, we will present our Readers with the following remarks on a text in Isaiah, where an omisfion is supposed, and which he ventures to supply by this mode of criticism :' • In Isaiah i. 21. the text sands thus:
How is the faithful city become a harlot? . It was full of judgment, righteousness lodged in it; • But now murderers. . In my judgment two words have been dropped here by the transcriber. These, which I take to have been Maleah Damim, filled with bloodfied, I supply from the context, ver, 15. If these be admitted, the translation will run thus :
How is the faithful city become a harlot ?
How is she, that was full of judgment, filled with bloodshed ?
Righteousness once dwelled in her, but now murderers ! If the two words have been omitted, the parallelism of the two first lines, and the contrast in the last, seem to vindicate me in replacing them.'
The subjects discussed in this volume are curious and inteFesting in a very high degree, as will appear from the following enumeration of their contents :
The speech of Lamech to his two wives.--The last prophetic words of Noah to his three sons. The last prophetic words of Isaac to his two fons.-The laft prophetic words of Jacob to his twelve sons.-The Song of Moses upon the destruction of the Egyptian army in the Red Sea.- A Song of the Israelites upon Jehovah's giving them water in the Wilderness (Numb. xxi. 17, 18.)— The Song of the Amorite Bard upon the conquest of Helhbon (same chapter).—The prophetic Parables of Balaam.-The Admonitory Song of Moses to the Israelites (Deut. xxxii.)- Tbe laft prophetic words of Moses to the Twelve Tribes (chap. xxxiji.) — The Song of Deborah.-The Thanksgiving of Hannah on the birth of Samuel.-The Lamentations of David over Saul and Jonathan.-The Lamentation of David over Abner.-The last prophetic words of David.
