I take the word onds, when it signifies rest, which is much less frequent, to be a participial noun from 73 (or 11), which is the same) and so to be radically distinct from the former,

But the Septuagint have rendered this word avatavois, and they have been generally followed; yet the Vulgate has it sepulchrum, and Gattaker

says that several of the ancients agree with this. The reader must decide for himself, remembering that Rom xv. 12 is a New Testament authority for applying this prophecy to Christ.

847. 7123 glory, or glorious. From 723 to honour, also glory. The 1 after the second radical is a participial formative, giving it something of the force of the past tense. Vide rule 159. Then it will bę, « And his sacrifice shall be honoured, or held in estimation."

Dis the pronominal suffix, rule 40, for them, that is, for the judgments denounced in the former chapter. Some suppose the D to be a mistake in transcribing; others, that it is merely paragogic, since no respect to it seems to have been paid by the Septuagint, Vulgate, &c. Montanus nevertheless has gaudebunt in eis; it was defective only in one of Kennicott's codices, viz, in No. 321.

* Dr. Lowth observes, that nine manuscripts read 75 to thee. It is true that nine of Kennicott's codices so read it, and there

may

be now added five others of De Rossi, but they are still a small minority, and also plainly contrary to the sense of the passage.

ISAIAH XXXV.

I THE wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them: and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
