* Solomon Bennett, in his reply (1809) to Lord Crawford's letter to the Hebrew nation, renders this versethus; “ For dogs have compassed me, a multitude of wicked have surrounded me x like a lion, my hands and feet.” And says, “ The radical then is '78 a lion, the 3 then is merely a servile, expressing the comparative like, but our translators and Mr. Parkhurst composed a new 'radical, i. e. 783 to pierce, to which we find no similar term in all the Bible, and Hebrew language, the proper

radical for it is 777 to pierce, or dig, but not x]. This new fabrication of a term was the cause of altering the syntax also; they put the comma after enclosed me, they pierce, &c. though according to the proper Hebrew, the stop ought to be after the term 983, but never before it. Secondly, according to the new invention the letter in 'does not belong either to a radical or to a servile, and entirely superfluous."

If 777 be the Hebrew word for to pierce, which does not appear from

any of the numerous places in which it occurs in the bible, except fierce be taken in the sense of to dig for the purpose of making

16 For dogs have compassed me; the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me; they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my bones, they look and stare upon me. 18 They part my garments among them; and cast lots upon my vesture.

a well, our translators still would be tolerably supported, for 190, which is the regular 3d pers. m. plur. perf. Kal of that verb, :7 final being dropped as usual before the servile, is a reading in two of the codices of Kennicott, and in no less than ten of the codices of De Rossi.

It is indubitable that '78) may be rendered as a lion, as it is often in the Old Testament; but the sense would be incomplete and unintelligible. It was no doubt this that led the Syriac translators to render it by lyia, the 70 by wqužav, and the Vulgate by foderunt; and it is extremely incorrect in Mr. Bennett, against the voices of three such ancient versions into different languages, and also against the Arabic and Ethiopic versions, to pronounce the English rendering, they pierced, “ a new fabrication." What he observes of the new invention with respect to 'is puerile; he should have explained away, if it was in his power, the instances of the same thing given by Parkhurst, which are only a few of many which occur.

The Keri or marginal word is generally the true one, which has been omitted, or changed into the Ketib aina (i. e. written) and has been afterwards supplied, or corrected in the margin through a commendable reverence for the text. It has been supposed that Ezra was the person who marked these variations, and put them in the margin to be read instead of the words which he found written in the text. But this is not probable, because such marginal readings are also found in the book of which he was the inspired penman.

It is remarkable that these various readings are of the consonants only, and not of the vowel points, which seems to show that they are of greater antiquity than the points. In Jer. li. 3. the word 777 occurs the second time unnecessarily, which is noticed by those who settled the Keri and Ketib, and by them marked not to be read. It has no vowel points, and may be presumed to have had none when such margin was made, otherwise they would have been preserved as well as the original letters. In Jer. xxxi. 38. the word D'XI coming is wanting in the text and supplied in the Keri, as usual without points, but in the text a blank space is left for the marginal word, and under the space are placed the vowel points. The fair conclusion seems to be, that the makers of the Keri performed their work before the points were added, and that those who added the points, ha
