This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887 edition. Excerpt: ...the note there, ad fin. 22. 2. "JTTP JIN 'thine only one.' LXX rbv ayam)T6v; cf. Prov. 4, 3, LXX. According to Frankel, Einfluss, p. 7, the rendering of the LXX was intentional, as Abraham had another son Ishmael. Isaac is called a TIT p, as the son of Abraham by his own wife Sarah, not as the only remaining son after Ishmael was sent away; all through the narrative Isaac and Ishmael are regarded by the writer as standing in a different relation to Abraham; cf. chap. 21 with chap. 16. rT'lDn.

But this Moreh was a place of no significance in the history of Israel, and too far from Beersheba to be reached in three days. Further, no great stress can be laid on the reading of theLXX either here or in 12,6, their translation being probably a mere guess, as it can hardly be a rendering of the Hebrew text. The VSS. render variously, and throw no light on the question. Vulg. has 'Urram visionis.' Onq. N3r6lS Tl? 'land of worship: Syr. )jclso? more
