But that the name Dad or David is that of Osiri-Tat or Osiri the "established " seems to us clear from phrases such as David utters (1 K. 2: 4). That a royal line is said to have claimed descent from him was scarcely as much as that every purified soul of the Egyptian dead was called Osiri, and the living Isera-El-ites did the like.

"barren "), which suggests Kore or Persephone, and allusion is made to her (Judges 15: 9) when the "fountain" of the Kore in Lechi is opened and Shim-shon "drank" (Meni), though Lechi and Meni suggest Alc-Mena, mother of He...
