such as Ploughing, Sowing, and Reaping, &c., and the allusions to them contained in the Prophets and in the Parables of our Lord, with much more of similar import. Talbot and West only use a verse once, and therefore some of their Sections are brief and scanty; on the other hand, we have repeated many verses twice, thrice, and oftener, our only limit being the fear of too large a Volume. Great care has been taken to secure accuracy of reference, and every verse has been turned up, and verified by young eyes and fingers in the retirement of a rural Manse. The technical labor of preparing copy has been performed by one whose relationship to the Editor gave her a filial interest in the daily and protracted task. The Work is enriched with a very full Index, prepared with characteristic accuracy by a friend whose labors in a similar field we have elsewhere acknowledged. Another peculiar advantage will be found in the prefixed Synopsis, which is so constructed that it may be read continuously, and it will be found to exhibit a bird's eye view of Biblical Antiquities and Theolegy. By the employment of Synopsis and Index, every subject of Scripture may be easily turned up, and full information speedily obtained. In fine, while our Book will save time and trouble to the inquirer, yet we counsel the continuous consultation of the Scriptures themselves, and of the verses in their original connection. For there is a living unity in the Bible amidst all its diversity, and it is with it as with the minerals of the globe, which present a more glorious order in the respective positions in which nature has placed them, than when artificially arranged on the shelves of a cabinet. With all the imperfections of this volume, and they belong more or less to every compilation of the kind, we hope that it may be found to be really useful, that the Divine blessing may accompany it, and that it may meet with that cordial and extended welcome which has been, and still is, so kindly vouchsafed to its two predecessors.
The Dash so often introduced, is designed to point out some differences in the Verses following it, such as Allusions and Examples, or Instances and Statements, adduced as contrasts to the Verses of the Topic or Section printed above it.
