♦Among the Zulus, not only is the first appearance of the New Moon carefully noted (p.515, note), but the day on which the Old Moon dies is kept as a sabbath, a day of rest from labour. The following is the statement of a Zulu. 'In Zululand the king has certain days of abstinence, and the people likewise. But the great day of abstinence is that on which the Moon dies; on that day no ■work is done by anyone. Other times of abstinence are when hail falls, or a hurricane blows, or lightning strikes, or a person dies, in -which case the neighbours go not out to do any kind of work.'

This volume completes my critical work on the Pentateuch and Book of Joshua, of which Part I was published fifteen years ago (1862).
In Chap. I I have considered the authorship of the Books of Kings, and have shown how the view of Bp. Lord A. Hkrvey, who assigns the composition of them, in accordance with Jewish tradition, to the Prophet Jeremiah, is reconciled with that of Gkaf, who assigns it as confidently to the writer of Deuteronomy, by the simple fact that the Deuteronomist was no other than Jeremiah himself.
In Chap. III have pointed out the Deuteronomistic passages in llLi-viii, and in Chap. Ill those in lK.ix-xi; and I have also exhibited separately those portions of the older history in these chapters, continuing that in 1 and 2 Samuel, which appear to have come into Jeremiah's hands and to have been laid down by him, in an expanded form, as the commencement of the present Books of Kings. These he appears to have then completed down to the Captivity from the Annals of the two Kingdoms or other sources at his disposal, including his own personal knowledge for the last four reigns; and they were still further expanded, during or after the Captivity, by a few insertions, which may be classed with the Later or Levitical Legisla
