increased the labour and responsibility, which devolved upon him, but it is believed the work has thereby been rendered more valuable. It is hardly necessary to remark that, in order to learn the additions and alterations, and the grounds on which they have been made, it will be found important to compare the translation with the German, as well as with the Latin.
The Notes, which have been occasionally inserted, and the Extracts, which, in order to render some articles more complete, than they would otherwise have been, it has been thought proper to insert, are distinguished from the text of Jahn, by being enclosed with brackets. Many errors in the references have been corrected; and in the present edition the reader will find a full and valuable INDEx of the passages referred to.
For this Index the translator here acknowledges his obligations to the interest taken in this work by MR. Smith TRAvers of the City of Washington. It was made out with much care and labour by MR. TRAvers soon after the publication of the first edition, and is now with pleasure presented to the reader with only a few alterations from his copy. Other minor improvements will be found in this edition; and it is confidently hoped, that the work will be found in all respects a valuable assistant to the biblical student in acquiring a knowledge of the Holy Scriptures.
