Excerpt from A New Translation of the Book of Job: With an Introduction, and Notes Chiefly Explanatory If we have regard to the main design, the substance and spirit of the work, we shall refer it to the department of moral or reli gious philosophy. It contains the moral or religious philosophy of the time when it was produced. It is rather a philosophical religious discussion in a poetical form than an epic or dramatic poem. It is more nearly allied to the Essay on Man than to Para dise Lost, or Prometheus Vinctus. It is the effusion of the mind and heart of the author upon a moral subject which has agitated the human bosom in every age. Still, the author was a poet as well as a religious philosopher. In the mode of presenting the subject to his readers, he aimed, like other poets, to move the human feelings by exhibitions of passion and scenes of' distress, and to please the taste by the sublime flights of his imagination. He aimed to give the highest interest to his subject by clothing his thoughts in the loftiest language of poetry, and arranging them in the measured rhythm which is one of the characteristics of He brew poetry.
