PREFACE

The study of the Holy Scriptures has a charm and interest wholly its own, even apart from its doctrinal and moral value ;-an interest that grows, a charm and a lure that never dims nor weakens. Not only as a picture of minds, manners, and morals, but for the human interest of the history it unfolds, the story of person and place, it holds its own against every chronicle of the events of the world.

The Scriptures have been, and are, a mine of wealth, a treasure of lore, in which saint and sage, master and student in every century have loved to delve and dig, and have found themselves always well repaid for their labors by the treasures they carry away from this storehouse of inexhaustible riches.

Inspired by the strong conviction-shared by every lover of the Sacred Books—that the knowledge of the Scriptures, in their historical light and character, will lead to a better understanding of the teachings and revelations hidden therein as a priceless gem in a beautiful casket; it has long been the earnest desire of the compiler of the present work to add his poor mite to the great task of making more easily accessible to the general reader the knowledge of the persons, peoples and places, of which the Holy Scriptures have aught to say.

The object of this Concordance, then, is to give under proper headings all that the Scriptures have to tell us of persons and places; using for this purpose all the texts to be found in Holy Writ that refer to the subject treated.

As a variation from the received Concordances, the texts are cited more at length, in order to give a clear and comprehensive sense of each passage, and thus a fuller understanding of the subject,-making the work more than a mere book of reference.

An added feature is the brief digest, under each caption, of what at more length would be found in the various Dictionaries of the Bible.

This work is offered in the earnest hope that it may be found of some use both to the student and to the general reader of the Scriptures. If it aid but a little to diffuse more generally the love for this Divine Armory, by inciting greater interest in, and desire for, the study of the Written Word, then indeed will this hope be realized.

Grateful acknowledgment is made for the kindly assistance given the compiler by Rev. Dr. Romanus Butin. S. M, associate Professor of Semitic languages and literature in the Catholic University of America; and to Rev. Philip J. Blanc. S.S., S.T.L., Professor of Moral Theology, and Librarian, in St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, who courteously placed at his disposal the facilities of the Library of that institution.
