This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 Excerpt: ...lawlessness and iniquity, tapdvop.oi and apaprukol are standing epithets of the Sadducees in the Pss. of Sol. (See Ryle and James's ed. Introd. xlv-xlviii.) In iv. 3, moreover, of that book there is a like accusation against the Sadducees to that in our text: airbi Ivoxos iv iroiKiXip kimpm&v irai iv aKpaoiais. Cf. Matt. xxiii. 25: "filled from extortion and excess." From sunrise to sunset. The text is ab oriente usque ad oceidentem, which = a(p' iilovdvaTiovtos fiixP1 SvofUvov. The Greek can mean either "from east to west" (cf. xi. 8), or "from suurise to sunset." The context requires the latter meaning. Thus ' from sunrise to sunset" is the equivalent of " at every hour of the day," in ver. 4. 8. Cf. ver. 4. Yea we shall drink our fill. See crit. note. 9. Though their hands and their minds touch, etc.... yet ye. For the Hebraism see crit. note. Their mouth will speak great things. Dan. vii. 8, 20. 9, 10. This combination of inward unclean ness and outward sacerdotal holiness in the Sadducean priesthood is also dwelt upon in Pss. Sol. viii. 13: iirdTovv T6 OvffiaaTJipiov Kvplov dirb iraaris aKadapirias Kal iv aipSpip atparos ifiiou.vov rAy dvffias cus Kpia pifirjXa. See also Pss. i. 8, ii. 14,15, xvii. 17. 10. Do not touch ine =, mmJni. This is probably derived from Is. Ixv. 5: "Come not near to me, for I am holier than thou," and the wn-Sn here may be a corruption of the BMn-Sn in Isa. VIII.-IX. We have now come to one of the most difficult questions in this difficult book. How are we to regard VIII.-IX.? Two interpretations have been offered. Volkmar, Philippi, and Colani contend that they are a record of what is already past, and constitute in fact a short history of the persecution under Hadrian...
