Our readers must have mot with 'so
many notices of the Moabite Stone, that
we should have thought it necessary to
preface the present article with -an ap
ology, were it not that Dr. Ginsburg has
very recently written a work on it, which
is more complete than anything we have
previously seen, and equals in interest
anything, perhaps, that we have ever
read. Its principal contents aro a fee
simile of the original inscription, with an
- English - translation.; the history - of -ttio
discovery of the stone ; the restoration
and' resent condition of the text; the
relation of the inscription to tho. Biblical
narrative ; its historical, theological, and .
linguistical bearings ; the literature of
the atone ; a commentary. on the text ;
the various translations which have been
given by different scholars; and a vo
The present paper is mainly based on:
Dr. Ginsburg's work, and aims at giving
a popular account of the celebrated stone,
with its teachings and suggestions.
In the summer of 1808, the Roy. F.
Klein undertook a journey from 'Es-Salt
to Korak, over a country which has been
very little visited by Europeans during
the present century. On August 19 he
reached Diban—about thirteen miles
east of the Dead Sea, and forty-two
miles south-east-ward from Jerusalem—
where he was informed that, scarcely ten
minutes' distance from his tent, there
was a large black stone of basalt. It
proved forty-one. inches high, twenty-one
in width and in thickness, rounded to
nearly a semicircle both at top and • bot
tom ; and it contained an inscription of
thirty-four lines, running acrosgs , it, at
about an inch and a quarter apart.
Though he did übt understand the im
port or importance of the inscription,
Mr. Klein felt it to be desirable that the
-stone should be gestured for some Euro
pean museum ; and Dr. Petermann, of
Berlin, to whom he described it, endeav
ored to get possession of it fok his govern
ment. ' .
Thd Moabite., Who up to this time
had regarded it as a charm merely, hay
ing learned that a Frank=n■ they call
every European—was desirous of ob
taining it, determined, like good men of
bueincss, to have more than'ohe bidder,
in order 111 get a higher price ; and a few
weeke after Mr. Klein's visit, a man
from Kerak earncto Captain Warren,
the agent of the 'Palestine Exploration
Society, at Jerusalem, to inform him of
the 'existence of the stone. Captain
Warren, however, knowing that the
Prussian Consul had moved in the mst
ter, did not' feel 'himself at liberty to
. ,
\ •
In the spring_of ispo, Dr, Barclay, an.
Englishman, informedCaptain_Warron; -
and M. Clerinont-Ciannean, of the Frond'
Consulate at Jerusalem, that tho'Prus.-
sians' had done but little toward secur
ing the relic ; and surprised them by
stating.that no "squeeze," or copy of
the inscription, had been taken. Though
the Englishman felt that it 'mattered
little vrhother the • stone got' to 11°01'.
London, or Paris, they called on Mr.
Klein to ascertain what progress had
really boon made-in the matter. „ •
M. Ganneau, however, employed - 1
Several ageuts'to °Utah' squeezes, , " and
mutually offered £375 for the atone itself.'
The Governor of Nablus,' hearing' there
was a atone at Man for which a Large
sum of money had bson'offered, endeav
°rid to obtain the prise for himself
the Moabifes, sooner' than give 'it up,
put R fire under it, and •then • cold water
•on it, so that the stone broke: The bits
they .distributed among the different
families, to place in the granaries, : where ,
they were to aot as blessings on
,the. corn.
and in November, 4.860„ Captain War
-ren, whilst, on his journey„from-LObanon
to Jerusalem, was met by a person
not only told film of the fate of the stone,
but gave him °woof the pieces, :Nenriy:

As.already stated, M. Ganneau sent
qualified persons to take a "squeeze"
whilst his nogotiatiens for the stone it
self were pending, and before it WAN
broken. UnfortMip,tely, hOwever, the
Arabs, who se hied not / to hale been
able to determine 'their exact, partner
ishiP in.the relic, fought over it whilst
the imprission, was being taken—so that
it ivas'innierfdetly'doifeladd Saved with
difficulty; for, having been taken off
. yr st wet, it got torn and crumbled_ in
drying,, and Ultimately 'reached
'Gatineau in seven pieces.
It is obvious that the _text at present'
in the hands of scholars necessarily con
tain lacuna), ltlis believed, con
sist of about thirty ; five\itntire_ words,
fifteen half-words, and eighteen letters.
They occur not only at the end, but in
the middle of all the lines =Copt six,-
which aro perfect.
The inscription ilea been translated
into German, French, and English, by
Several eminent Orientalists, some of
whOm have venttirod to fill a few of the
lacuna). The following is Dr. Ginsburg's
1. I Mosha am son •of Clonnosligad

Moab thirty years, nrici I reigned
8. ,after my father. 'And I erected this

Ammonites and Amalekitee, conquered
the_lsraelites,_who_served_hisn eighteen
years, and `rare, ultimately,, freed
Eliud, the Benjarnite (Judges, iii.:, 12-

of friendliness between the two people,
in which Elhnelech, of the tribe of Ju-
dab, went with hie fluidly to sojourn in
Moab,' during a famine in Israel; and
thereby led to Ruth, the Moabitess,
becoming an ancestress of Ddrid.

(I,Bam. xxii., 3,4). Upwards of twenty
gears afterwards, David—but why is not
statedmadewar on the Moibites, put
two-thirds of thorn to death; 'whilst the
rest becanio his servants, and brought
gifts (2 Sam., 2, and 1 Chron.,
xviii, 2). Among the "many strange
women" that King Solomon loved, there
were women of the illoabites k 1 Kings,
xi., 1),; and such was their influence as
to induco him to build a high place for
Chemosh, the abomination of broab, in
the hill that was before Jerusalem (lb.,
33, and 2 Kings, -can, 13):
About 030 B. C., Omri was made King
of Israel by the soldiery. In 919 B. C.,
ho wae•suocecded by his son Ahab, who
died in 896 B. C., .when his son Aliaziab
ascended the throne, to be succeeded by
his brother Johoram, or Torara, the next
year. On 'the death of Ahab, about a
century after that of David, Mosha, the
King of Moab, rebelled against the King
of Israel, to whom he had to render an
hundred thousand lambs and an hundred
t tousand rams, with the wool'.
That Jebel= thought Moab a -val
uable tributary and a powerful enemy
may be inferred from the fasts that-he
resolvea,,on its resubjugation ; and, hav
ing numbered all his people, deemed-it
prudent to secure the aid of Jehoshaphitti
- King . of Indali; land - of the King of
Edom ; and also that, instead of taking
a direct route, the allies reached the
enemy by fetching a compass of 'Seven
days' journey through the Wilderness of
.Edom. The allied armies, successful at
first, did their .utmost to, destroy the
country through which tliey advanced,
and at length shut 'up the Modbitesin
the' city of Kir- haraseth. Mesha, having,
with seven hundred men who drew
swords, made an unsuccessful attempt to
break his way through, took his eldest
sou, that should have reigned in hin
stead, and Offered him for a burnt
offering upon the wall. And there was
groat indignation against Israel ; and
they departed from him, and returned to
their:own land (2 Kings, iii.),
During- the reigp of Jehoshaphat—
but whether before or after the war ust
mentioned appears to be open to ques
tion—the Moabites, Ammonites, and
Edomites invaded Judah ; but quarrel
ing amongst themselves, left to the
Jaws the easy task of stripping their
dead bodies of an abundance of riches
and precious jewels (2 Chron., ix.) In
the reign of Jehoash, or Joni& (839-823
B. C.), bands of the Moabites invaded.
the land of Israel.
Isaiah, whose prophetical, career is
supposed to have extended fron:76o to
713, B. C., and - therefore from 136 to
ydars after Mesha's rebellion, devotes
his fifteenth and sixteenth chapters to
the Burden of Moab, in which he fore
tells great affliction which were to befall
the land ; and Mentions . the following as
liloabitieh cities—which, as we have
seen, are in Deuteronomy and Joshua
spoken of es belonging to Reuben and
Gad ; Dibon, Elcaleb, lleshbon, Jahar,
Modeba, Nebo, and Sibmah.
On comparing, the foregoing sketch'
with tho narrative of the Stone, there
can he no doubt that the Omri of ono is
the Omri of 'the other. Israel had not
two Kings of that name. Moreover, the
two narratives concur. in placing a
Moabitish rebellion against Israel in the
times of the Omri dynasty. hence there
can be no:difliculty in fixing the date of
the Stone: The• inscription states that
the subjugation of Meal), lasted forty
days. As it is improbable that. Ilia rp,jgn
exceeded this period by many, yeagir; the
monument cannot be more moderln than
880 B. O.; and is, therefore, the .most
ancient speoimen of alphabetical writing
yet diScovered. •
It has not been unnaturally concluded
from Ain; Biblical•-account—or, rather,
the Biblical silence—that Moab remained
in subjection to Israel from the time of
David to that of Johorain. TheMoalle
Stone, however, shows that it was• r -
subjugated by Omri ; consequently, it
lied attained its • freedom prior to ',the
eommencemont .• of his reign—possibly
during that of Solomon, and through
tho inilueueo of hie Mdabitish wives—or,
perhaps, - On - the - divlsibn of the Jewish
•liingdom in tlie time of Rehobo`am. , •
To account - for the fact that the allies
departed • from' Mesbn, and returned to
their ..own land; nOtwitldanding all
their previous suecesies against him; it,
has usually been supposid that they
were infltieneed by pity fOr, and not the•
anger of, the - Idonhites ;; which, 'to fiat

such as might be expected in two records
of the same 'events from two hostile
parties, and are far less striking-than .
the conflicting descriptions given by the
English and French of the battle of
Waterloo; by the English, French and
Russians of the capture of Sebastopol ;
by the Prussians and Austrians of the ,
battle of Sadovit.; or by the French and
Germans of the bettle'of Woerth." But
the actual-nwittiVe is silent on
these conquests, as we have seen,
fully recognie fact that at least
some of the towns mentioned in the
inscription, as well as several: other
Reubenito and fladite' towns, wore, in
his day, in the possession
.of Moab..
Whether they had so remained from the
time of 'liesha, we have no means -of
determining at-present.-
Dr. Ginsburg infors—twin the state
ment in the inscription, "I took from it
(Nebo) the vessels of Jehovah, and cast
them down before Chemosh"—that the
vessels used in the service of Jelmfah
Were actually - Used in that of thenioah ;
and that, therefore, the special part of
-the ritual for which theT were designed
was the religion both of the
Hebrews and of the Moabites. Though
the fact may be as Ito supposes, we think
his inference somewhat foreed. The
trophies of war sometimes Ming . in
Christian chuictics; can scarcely be said
to be used. In phristian worship. • .
Among the Jews, the pronunciation of
the name Jehovah was, as we are told by
Biblical students, only allowed in the
priestly benediction, and that . - any
layman who pronounced it forfeited his
life in this world and in the next. That
this reverene:iitor theiacred natriiedates
very far back is evident from the fact
that it is never employed in' the 'Septua
gint (298 B. C.), the Apocrypha, or the
New Testament. According to tradition,
the pious horror of pronouncing it
obtained in the time of Moses ; but the
occurrence of the name on the Moabite
Stone shows that if was so far used by
the lamented in the time of !Scalia that
ie took it as the characteristic name of
lie Jewish Natimial Deity
With very few exceptions, ancient
writings have no division of words ; and
it has been maintained, from analogy,
that the books of the Old Testament fol
lowed-the general rule. In the, Moabite
inscription, however, - the most ancient
specimen of alphabetical writing known,
and whose I language - approxiM &thrills the
Hebrew far more closely than does even
the Phoenician, the words are divided by
points, and the text into verses by verti
cal strokes. Hence, if.' analogy is to
guide us, it must be concluded that the
Hebrews resemble their relatives in, this
particular. It may be added, that this
is in harinony with the Synagogue
Ia the forms of the different parts of

HOLD FAIT Hatow.—A party of Irish
men,bnce upon a time, contracted to
clear a very deep well. Having tone of
• the usual conveniences employed (of such
purposes, they wore at a loss to get ono
of the party on a little ledge near tho
bottom to assist irkthe process of getting
out _water,, mud, etc.
__At. last, _
Phelan, a herculean fellowl proposed a
plan which free considered just the thing.
It - was this : Jimmy was to clasp his
big fists atounTthe windlass, then an
other of the party was to clamber down
and hold on by his lege, and so on until
the last man should be able to leap'upon
the ledge.
-Being slightly concerned with liquor,
the party prepared for the deieent(Witil
out stopping to conteinpla.te the Maul
ties iarolved in the adventure.
With bared breast and sleeves tucked
up, big Jimmy seized the , round portidu
of the windlass directly over the *Aland
swung himself over. Another of the
party crept down Jimmy's body and.
grasped him by the boots. After several
more bad followed suit, end theAureari
chain began to stretch far into the well,'
Jimmy bscame,alive to one great
cult) , ; the windlass did not afford him a
good hold in the first' place, , and. the
weight was getting intolerable.
At last humaa, sinew could stand it no
longer, and Jimmy hailed the lower link
in the chain with :
"Bo jabot", Pat, hold fast below 'till
I aPhit on me hans," •
suiting the action to the words, he re
leased his hold, when of course, the whole,
party were precipitated - to the bottom of
the well. As luck' would have it, there
was more mud than water where , the
