A VERY slight inspection of the pages of the present work will disclose to the reader its general character, and enable him to judge how far it is likely to supply an existing desideratum. Little, therefore, need be said by way of preface. My main object has been to afford facilities for the correct understanding of the sacred text-to aid the student of the Bible in ascertaining with the utmost prac ticable exactness the genuine sense of the original. With such an object in view it was perhaps impossible to avoid giving the work an aspect predominantly critical; and yet unless I have utterly missed my aim, there will be found such a union of the critical and the practical, as to adapt the volume somewhat happily to popular use. Should this prove not to be the case, I shall feel that the failure has been rather in the execution, than in the plan; for I know no reason to suppose that the two departments are intrinsically incompatible, or that the two-fold function of the exegetical and the ethical expositor may not be united in the same person.
