Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877 edition. Excerpt: ...to Babel, apK'ars in the present state of historical investigation to be a glaring anachronism. This has been also perceived by Hitzig, who, after he had declared (Beyriff tier Kritii, etc. p. 180 f.) the captivity of Manasseh to he an invention deriveil from the prophecy of Isa. xxxix. 6, has recently (Geach. as quoted) acknowledged the historical validity of this fact; whereas Graf has in his last work (Die geaehichtlichen Biicher dea Allen Test.

The capture and Babylonish exile of Manasseh caunot be transferred to so early a time as the third or fourth year of Esarhaddon, who, according to Ptolemy and the inscriptions, reigned 681-668. For even if an inscription of this Assyrian king, in a list enumerating twenty-two names of tributary Syrian ("Chattite," Hittite) kings, distinctly mentions a Minoi aar Yahudi, and thus, at all events, testifies that Manasseh belonged to the vassal-princes of that great king...show more
