Blessed (There is a most amiable spirit of piety in these reflections. Instead of expatiating on the praises of his munificent patron, or boasting of his own services, he blesses God for 'putting such a thing in the king's heart;' and for all the assistance and favour shown him by the king and his counsellors.)

Appendix. The Apocryphal Books of the Old Testament.

In the first class, or Halakhoth of Moses from Sinai,' tradition enumerates fifty-five, [6370] which may be thus designated: religio-agrarian, four; [6371] ritual, including questions about clean and unclean,' twenty-three; [6372] concerning
