Study Guarin Dom Benedictine, who exhorts, in his preface to the religious knowledge of the scripture perfectly to hear his messages. The first volume contains the Hebrew grammar and the first part of the syntax, the second examines the syntax figured Hebrew (true rhetoric of Scripture). AN ample dissertation follows on various issues concerning the Hebrew, poetry, accents, arithmetic, calendar; there are further treated in the Kabbalah and the Talmud and several tables Chaldean and Hebrew words.
