4 The Introduction of the which is indisputably of early origin, we find that  Gideon caught a young man of the men of Succoth, and enquired of him: and wrote down for him the princes of Succoth and the elders thereof. Thus writing was current even amongst other classes than professional men. In the time of Samuel books were already written. We read there 1  Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in the book and laid it up before the Lord. At the court of David the offices of a recorder and a scribe are mentioned as existing2.  We are not willing to enter upon a discussion about the date of the composition of the Pentateuch and of the book of Joshua,  hut the mention in these of  the written books of Jashar3  and  the Wars of the Lord 4   is sufficient for our purpose. One has only to open a Hebrew concordance of the Bible at the word כתב  to write, in order to see how frequently this word occurs in Scripture, from which the con-clusion may be drawn that the art of writing was freely practised by the Israelites, at least amongst the higher class of them. We may perhaps be allowed to quote a verse of the prophet Hosea, which seems not to be preserved  in its original form. He says, in the name of God5 ,  according to the Α. V . :  I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing. The R. V. translates,  Though I write for him my law in ten thousand precepts, and on the margin,  I wrote for him the ten thousand things of my law, following the Q. ri ^ רב instead of רבי . The LXX translates as follows: καταγράψω αντίο πλήθος, και τα νόμιμα αυτόν. The Targum and the Syriac version have both  a multitude. We believe that if an emendation has to be made, it ought to be that proposed by eminent  scholars, such as Newcome, Graf, Kuenen, and M. J. Halevy6,  viz. דברי instead of רבי ,  words of my law, words having the meaning 1 I Sam. x. 25.  2 2 Sam. xx. 24, 25. 3 Joshua  x. 13. 4 Numbers xxi. 14.  5 Hosea viii. 12. 6 See the various readings  in the Variorum Bible ( 2nd ed.),  a. l.   Chapter Home  | TOC t t t t t t
