Description

Excerpt from The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments, Vol. 3: Authorized Translation, Including the Marginal Readings and Parallel Texts, With a Commentary and Critical Notes; Job to Solomon's Song I think this is conclusive as to the country of Job and his friends. See Mr. Good as above. The man and his country being thus ascertained, the time in which he lived is the point next to be considered. I feel all the difficulties of the various chronologies of learned men: all that has beer. Offered on the subject is only opinion or probable conjecture; and, while I differ from many respectable authors, I dare not say that I have more to strengthen my opinion than they have to support theirs. I do not believe that he lived under the patriarchal dispensation; nor in any time pre vious to the giving of the Law, or to the death of Moses. I have examined the opposite arguments, and they have brought no conviction to my mind. That he lived after the giving of the Law appears to me very probable, from what I consider frequent references to the Mosaic institutions occurring in the book, and which I shall notice in their respective places. I know it has been asserted there are no such references and I am astonished at the asser tion: the reader will judge whether a plain case is made out where the supposed references occur. An obstinate adherence to a preconceived system is like prejudice; it has neither eyes nor ears. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
