A a great Deal is spoken of it in Southern France and several members of the Gibbon family Are eagerly busying themselves with its translation. But few paces have come to my sight of which i should like to warn All who Are not quite firm in their belief. The author goes so far translated expressly for the israelite chapter in. A continued v you have now Given us a Complete Conception of your great work reverend rabbi,�?T1 began Nehemia a a you have grasped a mighty idea. And carried it out posterity will have cause to thank your efforts for a great explanation and assistance to the study of the 4i do not name my work Quot said the venerable Man modestly a a for my Merit is very \ this commands obedience without Examina Small in it. At All times great scholars j lion of the command and without murmur have exerted themselves to simplify difficult. Ing Over its grounds. Dow can the Man passages in the talmud and to reconcile i presume everywhere to know Why Tho supposed contradictions. I have now uni j most holy praised be he Bas commanded ted with several friends to gather everything i this and forbidden that what is human of this nature which was often Only com intellect that it undertakes to judge the Viver the extremely Rich contents of so in portent a work which contains something new Tipon each Page. Pardon me if i have not Confidence in my skill for 44 Only so much you might inform us a urged rabbi Nehemia 11 if teachings such As our most reverend rabbi Jacob pointed out really appear in k i could answer with yes and no a teas to question the value of strict piety. A joined the youth 44 for Here it depends he cording to him less depends on the Observance of the ceremonies of the religion than on the acknowledgement of its grounds. A this teaching overthrows our religion for munic ated verbally and not at All written Down and Issue them As a continued commentary to the talmud under the title of to Saliot additions. The least of it is my work i Only gather up the odoriferous blossoms which others nurse and which if no one would take interest in and car for them would unnoticed Wither away. As you have without thinking of it. Furnished me Mach Excel Lent material your a Propri private remarks which you made me conversationally shall so god will not be however the work is yet far from its com commands of the highest what is More counted to Tho Merit of our father Abraham than that lie believed for this Merit for that believing obedience Sake with which he was ready to sacrifice his Only beloved son his descendants have received from god the Law As a present of the highest Grace we May not question it through a wicked Murr Aurine through which we Are led astray through doubts and disobedience. As i said. God protect me from wringing so great a Man and condemning him after a few pages which i read without that in a Cletion for a so conducted commentary of perhaps unfaithful translation i Only speak tre Day Labozer. In the morning Bow thy p a. An i in the evening withheld not thine hand tor thou know St not whether Finhall prot or a a Liber this or that or whether both thah be alike f 11 0. Sow be beside All Wnters where the jew of heaven May fall be shall reap if be be not weary for the spirit breathes Over All. Sow though the thorns met in wound thee one wore the thorns for thee Aud though the cold world scorn thee patient and hopeful be. Sow be beside ail Waters with a Blessing and a prayer name rim whose hand upheld us and sow thou everywhere. Sew though dark the Rock repel thee in its cold Aud sterile Pride some Cleft there May be riven where the Little seed May hide. Fear not for some May flourish and though the tires bound like the Willows by the Waters will the scattered Grain be found. Work while the Daylight last eth Ere the shades of night come on a Ere Tho lord of the Vineyard cometh and the labourer s work is done. Work i in the wild waste place though none thy love May own god guides he Down of the Bistie the wandering wind hath sown. Will thy master chide thy weakness9 or Call thy labor vain the word that for Bim thou nearest shall return to Bim again. Of with thine Hearl in heaven thy strength in thy masters might till the wild waste places Blossom in the warmth of a makers Light. Watch not the Clouds above thee let the whirlwind round thee sweep god May the seed time give thee but another a hand May reap a _ in m have Faith though never beholding the seed burst from the Tomb Thoa know est not which May perish or what be spared to Bloom. Boom on the narrowest ridges the ripened Grain will find that the lord of the Harvest coming in the Harvest sheaves May bind. It is written in a quaint old jewish manuscript now in the British museum that the oldest of Mankind Methuselah did not live Long As he might have done. The writer Bays that god promised him in a dream that h he would Rise up and build him a House Dis life should he prolonged five Hundred years. But he replied was scarcely Orth while to build a House for so Short a period and be died before he was a thousand j ears old. The whole talmud requires a giant work to which neither the strength of a few men nor Tho time of a Man s life will suffice. A we have Only commenced the work May our successors continue Pardon Roe gentlemen if i indulge in a question of curiosity a 6a?d Jensen. A a a which source of you assertions in regard to the before spoken Law Caso was meant a a work of the or at Maimonides Good Uncle a returned a Bud a1. A is it strange to you a asked Nehemia. A to that you should read holy think a this great Man has gathered All the jaws which Are gathered in the talmud and often in such places where no one would seek them arranged them according to subject and keenly and fixedly put them Down. It is a work of a far reaching knowledge and inconceivable Industry. A a add also of a spirit before which the darkest becomes Light a said rabbi Jacob. A a Yon have Here mentioned a Man of talents such As god bestows Only to his chosen ones. With Inch a one no one can measure himself. How Small do the services of my friends and myself appear when i compare them with the work of Maimoni Dea. If Only not just this one can say superhuman keenness of intellect could Lead to great mistakes. Who feels in himself so much strength of spirit who needs so Little strange instruction believes Only too soon that he can also dispense with the godly instruction. It requires More humiliation than will agree with a mighty self consciousness to subordinate ones views to whom we feel. Ourselves equal in talents while one forgets that upon him the holy spirit rested and their saying were the words of the living god. God guard me and protect me that my Tongue May not a Aluminate the Man who is the ornament of our religion but i fear that his keen research will not give Way before the most holy that it which should to received with unqualified reverence draw before the judgment sent of an arrogant and examining intellect he has written a great work in the arabic language from which i have ascertained some things which cause me this 11 you mean his Delalah Al Lairie a exclaimed Don Rabudal. A a of that is his last work i certain Lyman it returned the other 44 for i do not understand the title you named it May perhaps be 14 and How might it be translated a Jos sen inquired. 41 probably guide for the erring a answered Rabudal. In the supposition that the whole Book is written in this sense and will heartily rejoice if it stands your caution in the condemnation of so Groat a spirit is worthy of your Lovely mildness honoured rabbi a rejoined Don a Joseph. 44 were you yet acquainted with this excellent Maimonides As i have the Good Fortune to be had you noticed his pious conduct you would soon be convinced that a a nothing but Good beneficial can come from a again something new a cried Benedict then you Aro also acquainted with Maimonides so help me god i believe you have specially travelled to see All distinguished men. Well truly one of us a a i Sticks fast to where he is born. Where do i travel from York to London nod from London to York i know the Road by heart like the prayer Hail them who sit in my House. A appropriate idea it came into my head i know not How who sit at Home Well certainly we sit year in and but at Home. We Wajc till the new one comes to us. Then you Are acquainted with Maimonides. Why lie is your countryman but he does no longer reside in Spain. A where have you seen him. 14 in Alexandria a replied Don a a there he lives and is appointed As physician to 44 by Sal Adin in cried one of the guests astonished. U now god be praised that he a honoured a hebrew so High. But Saladin is not in Alexandria what does Maimonides do there a 41 he has enough to do a answered Rabudal 44 As Many members of the sultans a a family reside there it and it is his duty to give them medical care and All the sick of the City constantly take Bim in demand. A beside this he occupies himself with the a m in affairs of the hebrew congregation and outward congregations also continually turn to him and desire his advice it is incomprehensible that he does not sink under the Load and yet finds time for his Learned labors. The Only Day on which he Grants himself some rest is on the Sabbath and then he delivers to his admirers who gather i a a it around him the most excellent and impress a a a Sive discourses. On such occasions i have heard a Good Dea which his guide for the erring contains from his own lips and it Only then became quite Plain to a a then you should be Able to give of the Best information about the Book and Correct my opinion a exclaimed rabbi. Jacob. A a a it is exceeding difficult a returned Abidael a to compress in a few. Words and re a 1 a in tire by upon the manner of its Conception. The sentence on itself As it is nakedly spoken is subject to a thousand misconceptions it Only then receives its Correct sense through the connexion with other sentences and through its basis. Much which would startle us when we first perceive a % a Lovely instructive truth when it appears that it naturally follows previously advanced principles. However i will in consideration of your request declare what appears to me to be the chief idea of the Book. A the real will of god according to Maimonides asks of us As moral behaviour a striving for the completion of the spirit and heart a wrestling fora higher end than can be obtained on Earth and herein consists the substance of religiousness. All Laws. However which prescribe festivities and outward ceremonies Are not Tho object but the Means of our incitement. Their thoughtless Observance and practice therefore effects i nothing Only that one who through them Calls Forth the feelings which Rhey should elevate Acta after the godly will. Yet As i said to you gentlemen i believe i understand a Maimonides but i do not venture to assert that this is his full 44 do you also know what follows front this meaning a began Nehemia. 44 that those Laws Are superfluous for those who need no outward a # a a a a a a a very properly remarked a rejoined rabbi Jacob. A a gods Law is not then for a a a a All Only for the common people who Are not capable of a philosophic flight and if you think of it rightly also not for these a a urn m for who will declare himself confined eve pm in Ery one who can not even distinguish a cafe from a mouse nevertheless possesses enough conceit to attribute to himself some spiritus-a1 Worth and would Burry to cast off the Load of the Laws which until then kept his unbridled passions within Bounds. The eternal Law of god at whose revelation Tho Earth trembled ind mountains lamps is according to this a perishable one every religious Chain is broke a religion itself is revoked and intellect seated on a p a her throne. This is the sad consequence of such a teaching which gives dangerous new thoughts instead of the old a blessed 44 if Yon criticize each new thought a said Don Joseph arid faltered reddening. 44 Why do you hesitate a asked rabbi Jacob. 41 it Falls upon my heart that it does not become my youth to contradict your age a exclaimed Don Joseph. How could i then venture to oppose my weak views to your ripened experience a 14 speak out without heeding tins a said Tho rabbi with a look full of Benevolence. 41 in the province of knowledge it is not decided through the number of years and when one hears Yon he forgets that your hairs Are not yet bleached. Blessed be the parents who have produced such a soul. 14 Well then i obey you a rejoined Rabudal a a do not be angry with one if i express the opinion that one Mast accept new thoughts that is certainly Good True ones with Joy and View them a a gift which greatly enriches As. By the endless depth of the godly words there is Only a gradual penetration into the intellect possible. That which was proclaimed by god is an unfathomable sea of truth in which each drop contains an Limmea durability of Wisdom. A and eternity will not reach to exhaust it what matters then herein Aspan of time of a few thousand years therefore religion can be nothing fixed conclusive it must permit a progressive development which manifests itself in new thoughts a ii a my Gallant Young Friend return Ampf
