headings ‘EXEMPLIFIED,' in which the passages are quoted; and 'EXAMPLES,' when there is merely a reference.

Examples of the Figurative and Symbolical use of certain words, such as Day, Night, Darkness, Dove, Lion, are appended to them; but it has not been thought necessary to refer to every instance, as they may easily be found in a Concordance.

3. The subjects are arranged Alphabetically, to facilitate reference. No general titles, such as History, Geography, Botany, occur in the work. To find the History of the Israelites, the reader will examine the title Israelites; and every plant, tree, or flower, will be found under its own name. The same rule applies to all other subjects.

At the close of many of the Heads, references are given to similar and opposite subjects in other parts of the work. Thus, there is a reference from Regeneration to Sanctification, from Integrity to Dishonesty, and from Masters to Servants.

In the choice of Titles to the different topics—a task which occasioned much thought and anxiety-regard has been had both to appropriateness and practical utility, that Title being preferred which would most naturally occur to a reader. At the same time, various Titles are given to aid in discovering any subject of which a person may be in search.

4. In some instances the original Hebrew and Greek are given, when necessary to the understanding of the texts; and a short explanation, with the same view, is made occasionally of Greek and Hebrew words.

In the belief that the Scriptures are the fountain-head of all spiritual knowledge, and the ultimate standard of truth and duty, this work is now published, with the hope that it may direct inquirers to the springs of eternal life, and aid them in modelling their faith and practice by the Word of God. *All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, throughly finished unto all good works.'
