Who satisfies your mouth with good things… Psalm 103:5a Psalm 37: 3 declares: “Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” There, the

The second part presents the early history of Israel down to the death and burial of Joseph (12-50). “There are five principal persons brought in succession under our “notice in this book, and around these persons the history of the” “successive periods is grouped, viz., Adam (1-3), Noah (4-9),” “Abraham (10-25:18), Isaac (25:19-35:29), and Jacob (36-50).” “In this book we have several prophecies concerning Christ (3:15; 12:3; 18:18; 22:18; 26:4; 28:14; 49:10). The author of this book was Moses. Under divine guidance he may indeed have been led to “make use of materials already existing in primeval documents, or” even of traditions in a trustworthy form that had come down to “his time, purifying them from all that was unworthy; but the” hand of Moses is clearly seen throughout in its composition.
