Transcript 330 PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. inheritance of the Promised Land. Let the critic, then, dissuade us from our old belief—that the Pentateuch was entirely, with the exception of the concluding verses of Deuteronomy, the work of Moses ! While pointing out that we may stand on firm ground if we note that the historical portion does not prof ess to be written by Moses, he still leaves us certain passages to which is attached an express declaration that they are Moses' work. Under the guidance of modern criticism, we abandon the notion that every leader of Israel wrote down by Divine authority the events of his own time, happening under his very eyes, which would make of the Old Testament a sort of daybook, constantly written up to date : for we can see, e.g., that the mention of "Dan" in Deuteronomy xxxiv. i. (as in Genesis xiv. 14) proves that this chapter is not contemporary history; but the list of the encampment after the Exodus is another matter! This list is Moses' writing, and it describes the great work of his life. Written long after that time when "Israel pitched in Succoth,"—written, perhaps, in the evening of the solemn day, with the recollection of the mysterious ceremonial fresh on his mind, when Aaron, stripped of his high-priestly garments, had died on Mount Hor,—it is the indisputable chronicle of the encampments in the wilderness. What do we learn from it. The Israelites broke up their camp at Rephidim, and the next great halt was made in the wilderness of Sinai. The description raises a difficulty, and it removes one. If Jebel Serbal be HAJAR EL LAGHWEH, "THE SPEAKING STONE." A rock covered with Sinaitic inscriptions in Wady Berrah, "The Valley of the Passer-out.' From this valley you pass into a more open country, and leave the sandstone district.
