Excerpt from Cullings From Carmel: A Selection of Parables and Allegories Originally Wrought Out From the Hebrew
Many of them are taken from Midrash Rabbah and others. Each one of the selections inculcates a moral or religious lesson, and presents scriptural truths in the most attractive garb to the heart and mind.
In explanation of the title we have chosen for our little volume, we will state that Carmel. In the Old Scriptures, signifies The Mount of Flowers, and Solomon in his songs delighted to recount the glories of Carmel, its ﬂowers, its fruits, and its delicious odors.* Our selections are gleanings from this Mount; and therefore we think the title of this little volume emi uently appropriate, as suggestive of its contents.
