Description

Excerpt from A Theological, Biblical, and Ecclesiastical Dictionary: Serving as a General Note-Book and Illustrative Commentary of the Old and New Testament, and as a Cyclopedia of Religious Knowledge Though the doctrines and precepts of the Bible are remarkable for their clearness and plainness, yet we need not be surprised if some of its historic relations, and accounts of local matters, appear to us dark and confused. Many of them date Very early in the history of the world, and'some of them from the beglnning of time. Some of them refer to customs and manners peculiar only to the eastern part of the world, and therefore little understood by us who live at so remote a distance. Some refer to persons whose actions are only incidentally mentioned, and of whom the inquisitive reader will desire further information than is afforded in the Sacred Volume. Others relate to cities and kingdoms once great and flourishing, now ruined and deserted; and of these we wish for more geographical and historical information, than perhaps is contained in the Bible. The prophetic parts of Scripture contain many predictions which relate to particular persons and states, and the completion of which, though not always noticed in the Bible, is recorded in other histories and a knowledge of the time and manner of their fulfilment induces us to confide in others of the same kind, and justifies our belief in the Sacred Oracles.
