ILLUSTRATION

OF THE

EPISTLES OF ST. PAUL,

INCLUDING

AN ENTIRELY NEW TRANSLATION.

BY

CHARLES EYRE, CLK.,

TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE, A. B., 1807.

“Scholiasts by their copious exposition of places pour out a vain overflow of
learning on parsages plain and easy."

Locke.
“ The obscurity bas in many other places been occasioned by excessive brevity;
and this, which so perpetually occurs in St. Paul's Epistles, may, I think, be best
attributed to the Apostle's limited power of expression, his thoughts being crampt
by a foreign and difficult language. In such a case, no mere translation can do
justice to the sense."
