View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This dictionary covers the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, in both the Authorized and Revised versions, together with the first Book of the Maccabees in the Revised Version. The book aims to be a dictionary of the Bible, not of speculation about the Bible. It seeks to furnish a thorough acquaintance with things biblical. To this end it has been made a compendium of the facts stated in the Scriptures, and of explanatory and supplementary material drawn from the records of the ancient peoples contemporary with Israel; it has been adequately furnished with authoritative illustrations, not pictures drawn from the imagination, but actual delineations of the very things themselves; and it has been fully equipped with accurate maps, all recent, and most of them drawn specially for this work from the latest authorities. The interpretation of Scripture which is frequently involved in the statement of facts will, it is believed, be found to be sober, fair, and just.
