Excerpt from Biblical Review, Intended as a New and Improved Commentary on the Bible, Vol. 2: Wherein the Author Attempts to Give More Rational Interpretations of Subjects and Passages, Than Are Common in Other Works Having the Same General Purpose; On a Plan That Renders the Book as Well Fitted for Reading as for Reference

By leaving out these useless discussions, we hope to find space for those matters that are really important, and of which we get but little information in other works that are offered as guides in a right understanding of the sacred Scriptures.

It will be observed that we do not explain the Scriptures in the order of passages altogether. The present volume embraces all the historical parts of Exodus and Numbers, and the cor. Responding portions of Deuteronomy. The laws and ceremonies of these books, and of Leviticus, will be treated of in another volume. By this method, we can give the reader a better view of the Scriptures than we could by a perpetual change from the narrative parts to the legal, and from the latter to the former, as we should be obliged to do, if we discussed passages and subjects as they occur.
