MOSES AD THE PROPHETS.THE OLD TESTAMET I THE JEWISH CHURCH,By prof. W. ROBERTSO SMITH;THE PROPHETS AD PROPHECY I ISRAEL,By DR. A. KUEE;ADTHE PROPHETS OF ISRAEL,By W. ROBERTSO SMITH, LL.D.REVIEWED BYWILLIAM HERY GKEE, D.D.,PROFESSOR I PRICETO THEOLOGICAL SEMIARY.PREFACE.This volume does not pretend to discuss all ques-tions pertaining to the Books of Moses and theProphets. It is simply a reprint, with additions, of articles in review of the works named in the title,which appeared in the " Presbyterian Review," forOctober, 1881, and for January, 1882, and in the"Princeton Review," for July, 1878. The last ispublished as originally written, a few pages hav-ing been restored which were dropped to bring itwithin smaller compass. The Preliminary Remarkswere delivered in September, i88i, as the openinglecture of the session in Princeton Theological Sem-inary. A few paragraphs have been added to thearticle entitled " Professor Robertson Smith on thePentateuch," for the sake of greater fulness or clear-
 
ness in the argument. Thus attention is drawn toth€ fact that the alleged diversity of writers in thePentateuch, if it could be proved, would not affectits antiquity or authority (p. 46) ; that the LeviticalLaw must have been written as well as enacted inthe Wilderness (p. 61) ; that Moses could have2 PREFACE.spoken of his own meekness with no disparage-ment to his modesty (p. 6i, note) ; that the variantphraseology of Leviticus and of Deuteronomy, in re-lation to the priests, involves no diversity of author-ship or of age ( p. 80, note 2) ; and that there is nodiscrepancy, as is alleged, between Deuteronomy andthe Levitical Law in relation to the Passover (p. 118,note). A separate chapter has also been devoted tothe Worship in High Places, about which the criticshold the most extravagant opinions, and upon whichthey found their principal arguments against the an-tiquity of the Laws of the Pentateuch.The review of Dr. Robertson Smith's recent Lec-tures on the Prophets of Israel is here published forthe first time.If this little book shall serve in any measure toconfirm the faith or to relieve the perplexities of anywho have been disturbed by recent critical specula-tions, the author's highest wishes on its behalf willbe realized. With whatever learned ingenuity andskill the unfounded speculations may be contrived,and with whatever boastful confidence they may beput forward, we may rest assured that the estab-lished belief of ages will not be unsettled, nor thefirm foundations of God's Word be overturned.Princeton, . J., August 22d, 1882.
