9781331793120: The Book of Job: Its Origin, Growth and Interpretation, Together With a New Translation Based on A; Revised Text (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Book of Job: Its Origin, Growth and Interpretation, Together With a New Translation Based on A; Revised Text

Hz, 7-47first draft and the final form, with a view of making thek more palatable to Jewish orthodoxy. In many instances the textual changes required in order to produce a' satisfactory meaning are slight and as obvious as they are slight, but frequently a more radical process is required in order to restore the text to its correct form. Often we can only approxi mate the correct form, but sufficiently so as to obtain at least a satisfactory view; and occasionally the critical student finds himself baffled and must con tent himself either with a more or less plausible guess, or admit his inability to solve the puzzling problem as to the precise meaning and original form of a line, phrase or word, or an entire verse. The means at our disposal for correcting the text, and the method to be followed in doing so, are set forth in my study of the book and in the notes attached to the trans lation. All instances of a deviation from the re ceived text are noted; and while I have avoided tech nical discussions, because both the study of the book and the translation are intended primarily for the general reader, I have given sufficient indications in the brief notes to enable scholars, who feel so inclined, to test the justification of the revision to which the text has been subjected.
