Bible Notes

"Set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God" (I Chron. 22:19)—Moffatt offers the following interesting rendering of this passage: "Make up your minds to revere the Eternal your God;" while Smith suggests: "Now set your heart and your mind to seek the Lord your God."

"Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth" (Job 22:22)—The Hebrew word "Torah," here rendered "law," and often used in that sense, has the primary meaning of "direction" or "instruction" (cf. Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 435). Consequently, Smith renders: "Receive instruction, now, from his mouth;" though Moffatt prefers: "Accept the orders that he issues."
