OLD DICTIOHARY TO rJ I

Never Before rubluhed. -

that have arisen over Incongruous j
translations In the English revised)
version of the Bible nmhnhlv mar '
be solved through the use of the
oldest comprehensive dictionary of
the; Bible, which has been published
by the Yale University" Press.
The dictionary, written in the
Tenth century and since then ex
tant only In manuscript form, has
been ' edited by Dr. Solomon L.
Skoss, professor of Arabic in
Dropsie college' PhQgdelphia. Th
dictionary . was written' in Arabic
but in Hebrew characters and is
based on manuscripts which for
eight centuries lay forgotten in the
basement of a Jerusalem synagogue.
With it several disputed passages of
the Bible have been clarified.
It was written .by. David ben
Abraham al-Fasi, ' one of the Ka
raites, a Jewish sect which origi
nated in Mesopotamia in the
Eighth century and which denied
the validity of the traditional teach
ings of the Talmud and later Rab
binic literature. ;
Accepted Old Testament.
The Karaites, accepting the Old
Testament as the sole authority, de
voted their entire attention to a
thorough study of the Scriptures, its
exegesis and -philology.
Al-Fasi's dictionary enjoyed such
popularity and authority among the
generations of scholars that fol
lowed him that it was known simply
as "The Book." In various Euro-,
pean libraries today are to be found
in manuscript form three different
abridgements made during the
An old and torn manuscript of
al-Fasi's work was found in 1830
in an underground chamber of the
Karaite synagogue in Jerusalem.
The manuscripts, together with sev
eral fragments of the various ver
sions, are now in the state public
library in Leningrad.
Dr. -Skoss in 1932 was investigat
ing manuscripts in the library on a
grant awarded by the American
Council of Learned Societies when
he discovered the last half of one of
the partly destroyed Leningrad frag
ments. A study of the Hebrew-Arabic dic
tionary has been made by students
of the Old Testament and verses
which have required elaborate in
terpretations to explain their incon
gruity have been shown- to be in
Exodus Chapter Cited.
As an example, Dr. Charles C.
Torrey, Sterling professor of Se
mitics, Emeritus, of Yale, cites
the customary version of the story
of the golden calf in Exodus, chap
ter 32, verse 4. The revised version
presented the story that when the
wives, sons and daughters brought
the golden earrings, Aaron "re
ceived it at their hand, and
fashioned it with a graving tool,
and made it a molten calf."
Aaron's transformation- of the
golden earrings into a golden calf
by means of a graving1 tool has
been difficult to understand.: Dr.
Torrey points out that the al-Fasi
dictionary takes the corresponding
Hebrew expression "hereto to mean
"a mold into which molten gold ana
silver are poured", and the, whole
passage becomes clear : Aaron cast
the earrings into a mold and made
a golden calf.
According to Dr. Skoss, the au
thor of the dictionary was born in
Fez. Morocco, as his surname al-
Fasi (the Fezite) indicates. How
ever, he must have lived for. some
length of time in Jerusalem, where
he most likely wrote his dictionary.
Dr. Skoss' editions are,' based , on
all the known manuscripts and
fragments and all its versions...
