Not illustrated. 1822 edition. Excerpt: ...forming of whom thou 'hast shewn thy mighty power, ) finds room enough to tum'ble up and down, and sport himself in his absolute do 'minion over all that the sea contains.' Bp. Patrick.--Many authors, and among the rest, Bishop Patrick, in commenting on Job, suppose the leviathan to mean the crocodile: but the text before us so fully decides the leviathan to be an inhabitant of the sea, that this resjectable author paraphrases it, in direct opposition to his exposition of the scripture before referred to! (Notes, lxxiv. 13--17. Job xli. Is. xxvii. 1.)--The word, rendered "things creep"ing," is used concerning the fishes, in the history of the creation: and as none of them, properly speaking, have legs and feet, and many of them in great measure lie and crawl at the bottom of the water; there is a propriety in considering them as a peculiar species of reptiles. (Gen. i. 20. marg.)---Beasts. (25) Or, "Living creatures." (Note, Rev. iv. 6--8.) V. 2/--30. The immense creation, forming one great family, maintained upon the riches and bounty of Jehovah, as the great Householder, is a very striking idea: whilst at his will one generation of creatures perish, a new generation succeeds; and successive crops of vegetable productions renew and cover the face of the earth.

(Notes, xxxiii. 4--6, v. 6. Gen. i. 2. Job xxxiii. 1--7, 4.) V. 31. The old version here is, " Glory be to the "Lord for ever; let the Lord rejoice in his works." Our present translation is more literal: but the variation shews, that no certain rule has more
