Excerpt from The Ethics of the Old Testament

In the Introduction I discuss the sources, that is, the books Of the Old Testament, in the order in which they appear in the Hebrew Bible. When I proceed to use them for the purpose in hand, I take them, some times in parts, as far as possible in chronological order. There are cases in which I have found it impossible to follow this plan, the most exceptional being that of the Book of Psalms, which, although it doubtless contains some much earlier pieces, has others that are as late as any other book in the Hebrew canon. I have there fore discussed it by itself as a whole in the closing chapter.

A word should be said about the quotations from the Scriptures. They will not always sound familiar. The explanation is that, when I have quoted, I have generally followed the American Revision, but I have sometimes changed it where I found it unsatisfactory, and sometimes made my own translation or adopted one made by a recognized scholar. In no case have I taken such liberty without good authority for the rendering preferred. The passages that seemed to require correction are included in the list Of those specially discussed in the second index.
