PREFACE.

Cibccmstances, which will be known to most of my readers, and for which I am not responsible, having kept me unexpectedly in England some months beyond what I had anticipated, I have been able to complete the Fifth Part of my Work on the Pentateuch, and to leave it thus behind me, as a token of farewell at once to my friends and to my adversaries.

I will here briefly state the contents of the present volume.

In Chap.I I have shown that a very large portion of the Book of Joshua is due to the same hand that wrote the Book of Deuteronomy.* From this it follows at once that Moses, at all events, could not have written Deuteronomy. It follows also, from the way in which the Deuteronomist appears to have blended his later additions with the older matter of Joshua, that we may find that he has also revised the first four Books of the Pentateuch, and made similar insertions in them.

In Chap.II I have given lists of the Elohistic portions of Genesis, as extracted by Hupfeld and Boehmer, the two continental writers who have specially devoted themselves to the close critical examination of Genesis. And, comparing them

* I wish to call the attention of critical scholars to the proof in App.il (62, note), which shows that the formula in N.x.35, said to have been used at every movement of the Ark in the wilderness, is a Dcutcroncmiatic insertion, and therefore, as I have maintained in (II.t08), has been most probably imitated from Ps.lxviii. 1.
