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. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ... repeated in the Hebrew, because it seems that the former part of the verse was twice translated.) Where these Divine Names stand, either with or without the interjection O ' at the beginning of a psalm or of a portion of Ps. 119, full capitals were used, as ordinarily at the beginning of a chapter in the Bible. This fails to show that the word ' Lord 'in 90:1 and 119: 97 and the word ' God' at the beginning of Ps. 46, 60, 63, 67, 74, 82, and 108, do not represent the ineffable Name. The word 'God' at the beginning of Ps. 79 was left in ordinary type. In these ten cases we have put the letters after the initials in the words ' Lord ' and ' God' in "lower-case" type, but of a larger size than that elsewhere used. The Hebrew word Elyon, applied to the Almighty, is represented in the Psalter eleven times by ' Most Highest, ' four times by 'Most High, ' twice by ' Most High (God), ' once by ' High (God), ' and once by ' Highest.' In nearly all these cases, the Standard of 1845 used capitals, as printed above. We have made the usage uniform by introducing capitals in Ps. 7: 18, 67: 2, 78: 35, and 78: 57. The same Hebrew word occurs also in Ps. 91:9, but is so mistranslated as not to appear as a Divine title. Another Hebrew word, Mdrom, appears in the Psalter as 1 This is the rending of the manuscript book in the Burial Service, of Collingwood both in the Psalter and in the Burial Service, and of the present books from both University Presses in the Burial Service. 'most Highest 'in 56: 2 and 92:7, and ' most High ' in 73:8; we have printed the words as here given. In Ps. 13:6, the words 'most highest' have no representative in the original and we have not capitalized them. The words 'Most Mighty' in Ps. 45: 4 represent the Hebrew Qibbor; more
