[The Biblical citations given in the Christian Science Quarterly are from the Authorized King James Version. The Bible Notes in this column can be used, if deemed necessary, to elucidate some of the words or passages contained in the Bible Lessons.]
"There is none else" (Deut. 4:39)—In the Hebrew of the original, the statement is found to be even stronger than is suggested in our Common Version, meaning literally "there-is-not besides," which might well be represented by: "There is nothing else," rather than "There is none (i.e., no one) else."
"Thou shalt not make thee any graven image" (Deut. 5:8)—The Hebrew term "pesel," here translated "graven image," means literally "that which is hewn or carved into shape," and is used in the Old Testament to describe images of wood or stone, and sometimes even of metal. Moffatt renders: "You shall not carve for yourselves any idol."
"All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord" (Ps. 145:10)—The Hebrew term which is here translated "praise" can also mean "give thanks to"; so, while Kent retains the translation "praise," the Revised Version prefers the rendering "give thanks."
