The International Critical Commentary (ICC):...

Electronic edition of one of the author's finest achievements.

C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x XIV PREFACE or theological, occurring in the English versions, will, it is hoped, be found useful. I have not deemed it desirable to exclude entirely Hebrew words from the text of the Commentary; but I have en-deavoured usually to meet the needs of those not conversant with Hebrew, by adding translations, or otherwise so framing my notes as to render them intelligible to such readers. Philo-logical matter of a technical kind has been thrown regularly into the notes. Only, sometimes, in citations, where I was tempted, by its superior brevity, to quote the Hebrew  text, and in the Tables of parallel passages ( pp. 10, 19, 24,  & c.) — in using which the reader is supposed to have the  Hebrew text of Deuteronomy open before him — will the Hebraist have an advantage over the non- Hebraist, of which the latter, I trust, will not be envious; in the case of the Tables, had I felt that the space at my disposal would permit it, I should havetranscribed both texts in  English, as I have done in other in-stances( pp. 157  f., 181  f., & c.). The Tetragrammaton — not without hesitation   has been represented by its popular, though undoubtedly incorrect, form Jehovah: this, it was felt, marked sufficiently the fact that the name was a per-sonal one; and Yahweh, in a volume not designed solely for the use of specialists, might be to some readers a distasteful innovation. For typographical reasons, Arabic words have usually been transliterated in Roman characters,* and Syriac words in square Hebrew characters. Distinctions between Hebrew sounds, where they can be represented by a breath-ing, or a diacritic point ( h, t, k, s or z), I have thought worth preserving, though I have shrunk from carrying this prin-ciple out in the case of one or two words of very common occurrence ( such as Canaan), in which its application might seem to savour of pedantry. The authorities to which I am principally indebted will be usually apparent from the names quoted. A special * = dh; = d; = t, = h: = ch; = gh. An occasional oversight, or irregularity, in the transliteration of a proper name, the original of which I may not have seen, will, I hope, be pardoned.
