Note: Louis de Carrières (1662-1717) was a
French priest and Bible commentator. His work La Sainte Bible en
francais, avee un commentaire littéral inséré dans la traduction won a place
among the readers of the scriptures in French. It differs markedly from anything published by
earlier commentators. Taking Isaac-Louis
Le Maistre de Sacy's translation as a framework, Carrières added a
few words of paraphrase here and there to explain difficulties or clear up
obscure places. These simple and short additions inspired for the most part by Vatable,
and Cornelius Jansen, and printed in italics, are
easily discernible from the text itself, with which they are also united so as
to form one continuous narrative. There are thus no notes to interrupt the
text. There are a few errors, however-occasional
mistranslations, some groundless hypotheses and opinions later discredited,
some unfortunate choices of authorities and interpretations.
*The Book of the All-Virtuous Wisdom
of Joshua ben Sira, commonly called the Wisdom of Sirach or simply Sirach,
and also known as The Book Ecclesiasticus or Siracides (abbreviated
Ecclus.) or Ben Sira, is a work of ethical teachings from the early 2nd
century B.C. (approximately 200-175 B.C.) written by the Jewish scribe Shimon ben Yeshua ben Eliezer ben
Sira of Jerusalem. The book was not accepted into the Hebrew Bible
and as a result the original Hebrew text was not preserved in the Jewish canon.
However, various original Hebrew versions have since been recovered. There are
numerous citations of Sirach in the Talmud and
works of rabbinic literature (as "ספר בן סירא", e.g., Hagigah 13a).
Despite not finding ultimate acceptance into the scriptural canon of Judaism,
it was read as scripture by some Jews. For instance, it was included in the
canon of the Jewish Septuagint, the 2nd century BC Greek version of the Jewish
scriptures used by Diaspora Jews. Sirach is accepted as part of the Christian biblical canon by Catholics, Eastern
Orthodox, Anglican, and most Oriental
Orthodox but not by most Protestants.
The Greek Church Fathers also called it the
"All-Virtuous Wisdom", while the Latin Church Fathers, beginning with
termed it Ecclesiasticus because it was frequently read in churches, leading to the title liber
and Latinised Greek for "church book"). In Egypt, it was translated
into Greek by the author's grandson, who added a prologue. The Prologue to
the Book of the All-Virtuous Wisdom of Joshua ben Sirach is generally
considered the earliest witness to a canon of the books of the prophets, and
thus the date of the text as we have it is the subject of intense scrutiny.
**Isaiah was a prophet in the 8th-century BC Kingdom of Judah. Jews and Christians consider the Book of Isaiah a part of their Biblical canon; he is the first listed (although not the
earliest) of the neviim akharonim, the later prophets. Christians believe that Isaiah prophesied the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Many of the New Testament teachings of Jesus refer to the book of
Isaiah. Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335–395), believes that the
Prophet Esaias (Isaiah) "knew more perfectly than all others the mystery
of the religion of the Gospel." Jerome (c. 342–420) also lauds the Prophet Esias, saying, "He was more of
an Evangelist than a Prophet, because he described all of the Mysteries of the
Church of Christ so vividly that you would assume he was not prophesying about
the future, but rather was composing a history of past events."
***Jeremiah, meaning "Yahweh exalts", was one of the main prophets of the Hebrew Bible. His writings are put together in the Book of Jeremiah. In Judeo-Christianity, Jeremiah is traditionally credited with
authoring the Book of Jeremiah, 1 Kings, 2 Kings and the Book of
the assistance and under the editorship of Baruch ben Neriah, his scribe and disciple. Judaism considers the Book of Jeremiah part of its canon, and regards Jeremiah as the second of the major prophets. Christianity regards Jeremiah as a prophet while Catholicism in particular regards him as a saint. The New
Testament quotes Jeremiah, and it has been interpreted that Jeremiah
“spiritualized and individualized religion and insisted upon the primacy of the
individual’s relationship with God.” Islamic tradition, meanwhile, also includes Jeremiah in the prophetic pantheon, and
Jeremiah is listed as a prophet in all the collections of Stories of
