About this title:

Synopsis: Book may have numerous typos, missing text, images, or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1895. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX. NOTE I. (See p. 71 ante.) As the punctuation of Daniel ix. 25 is doubtful, I have given the passage without any punctuation whatever. The Revisers decided by a majority vote to follow the Massoretic punctuation; and this has been adopted by Dean Farrar, who fails to see that it is fatal to his pseud-epigraph theory of Daniel. The passage thus read appears to limit to 62 "weeks" the period during which Jerusalem was to remain as an inhabited city. But it is quite certain that no Jew writing "in the days of the Seleucid tyrant, anxious to inspire the courage and console the sufferings of his countrymen," could have framed words which would have been construed to mean that the destruction of their holy city was imminent. Assuming the genuineness of the Book of Daniel, the R.V. punctuation renders the meaning of the passage more obscure, but it cannot alter it, for as 7 + 62+1 make up 70, it is obvious that the lesser periods mentioned are subdivisions of the 70 weeks of the prophecy. It is clear, therefore, that the 62 weeks follow the 7 weeks, and that the death of Messiah (according to verse 26) was to be at the close of the 69th week. As every one knows, there are no punctuation marks in the old Hebrew Scriptures, and the insertion of these is largely a matter of editing. And further, " The Received, or, as it is commonly called, the Massoretic Text of the Old Testament Scriptures has come down to us in manuscripts which are of no very great antiquity, and which all belong to the same family or recension" (Preface R.V.). In adopting the Massoretic punctuation of Daniel ix. 25, the Revisers have followed the accepted axiom of criticism, that of various readings the more difficult is to be preferred. But that rule is of course inapplicable when the difficult reading can be a...
