About the Book -- The Fifty-Third Chapter of Isaiah according to the Jewish interpreters (in 2 vols.)

Upon invitation of Regius Profes

Upon invitation of Regius Professor of Hebrew at Oxford Universtiy S.R. Driver, Prof. Neubauer has undertaken the task of editing a complete catena of Jewish commentaries on the remarkable chapter of the biblical book of Isaiah which has for ages formed one of the principal battle-fields between Christians and the Jews (three verses of the fifty-second chapter, have been added as well).

Driver's request was "gladly acceded to", according to Driver himself, and the collection in the present two volumes comprise not merely commentaries, but also extracts relating to the same subject from works of controversy and other sources, whether composed in Hebrew or in any of the other languages adopted by Jews from time to time in the varied homes of their exile.

These are arranged, as nearly as possible, in chronological order. Among the authorities consulted are Septuagint, Targum Yonathan, Talmud (both Yerushalmi and Bavli), Midrash Rabbah, Tanhuma, Yalqut Shim‘oni, Siphré, and the P’siqthâ (as cited by Hulsius, in his Theologia Judaica, 1643, from the לכור תקבא), Zohar, the Arabic version of the Ga’on, R. Sa‘adyah, writtings of the Karaite, Yepheth ben ‘Ali (a contemporary of Sa‘adyah), the kabbalistic midrash known as the Mysteries of E. Shim‘on ben Yohai, works of R. Sh’lomoh Yizhaqi, the celebrated French commentator, born about 1030 at Troyes, more familiarly known as Rashi, plus many others (almost 100) Jewish commentators.

All of them have been translated jointly by Nubauer and Driver; Spanish commentaries have been translated by under obligations to H. J. Mathews, of Exeter College, Oxford.

In all cases, it has been the aim of the translators to render the various texts as literally as was consistent with English idiom, while at the same time reducing in some measure the diffuseness and tautology of expression not infrequently characteristic of the original. They have refrained from offering any criticisms or comments of their own even in cases where defective philology or palpably false exegesis might seem to invite or demand them.
