A Differtation on the Ancient Verfions of the Bible; fhew-
ing why our English Translation differs fo much from
them, and the excellent Ufe that may be made of them to-
wards attaining the true Readings of the Holy Scriptures
in doubtful Places. In a Letter to a Friend. The
fecond Edition, prepared for the Prefs by the Author
before his Death, and now printed from his own
Manufcript. By the late Rev. Dr. THOMAS BRETT.
Lond. 1760.
P. 1.

In the Year 1729, Doctor Brett published a Chronological Effay in
Defence of the Computation of the Septuagint. In that Tract he ob-
ferves, that if the Reader "compares the xivth Pfalm in his Bible, which
is tranflated from the Hebrew, with the fame Pfalm in his Common-
Prayer-Book, tranflated from the Septuagint, he will find that in his
Common-Prayer-Book, there are four whole Verfes more than are in
his Bible, viz. ver. 4, 5, 6, 7. Yet these Verfes are every one of them
cited by St. Paul in the fame Words, Rom. iii. 14, 15, 16, 17, 18." For
the clearing up of this and fimilar Difficulties, he wrote, in the fame
Year, the Effay which is here republifhed; the first Edition of it came
out in 1742, feveral Years after it had been compofed. It is an excel-
lent Differtation, and cannot fail of being very useful to such as have
not Leifure or Opportunity to confult Dr. Hody's Book de Bibliorum
Textibus; Bishop Walton's Prolegomena to his Polyglot; Du Pin's
Canon of Scripture; Dean Prideaux's Account of the Hebrew Scrip.
tures in the 2d Vol. 8vo. of the Old and New Teftament connected;
the 2d Book of Lamy's Apparatus Biblicus; Lewis' Origines Hebrææ;
and other Works of a like Nature. Dr. Owen's Inquiry into the
prefent State of the Septuagint Verfion, Lond. 1769, is very deferving
of the Reader's Attention.

An Hiftorical Account of the feveral English Translations of
the Bible, and the Oppofition they met with from the Church
Rome. By ANTHONY JOHNSON, A. M. Lond.
1730.

р. бо.

In the Preface to Pole's Annotations on the Bible, there is a fhort
Account of the English Translations of it; and a Tract was printed in
London, 1778, intitled, A Lift of various Editions of the Bible, and
Parts thereof, in English, from the Year 1526 to 1776. If the Reader
wishes to make a deeper Inquiry into this Subject, he will find full
Information, not only with respect to various Translations of the Bible
into English, but into a great many other Languages, in Mr. Le Long's
Bibliotheca Sacra.
