This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Ps. xlviii. 8, ni'JN-OETI Dnp nro; Ixxviii. 20; Isa. xxvii. 8; Jer. xviii. 17, etc.).--The earnest fervour of the men's prayer is manifest even in the introductory interjection DN, here as five times elsewhere (iv. 2; 2 Ki. xx. 3; Isa. xxxviii. 3; Ps. cxvi. 14, 16) used instead of NJN, which is a contraction of HN and NJ, whence arise the dagesh forte in J and the double accent nJN or fw annah, Jewish grammarians vainly disputing whether the word is milel or milra, (see e. g.
