(בְּלַיל, belil', Job 6:5; Job 24:6; Isaiah 30:24). In the second passage in Job this word is rendered in our version "corn;" the margin gives "mingled corn or dredge;" in that of Isaiah it is rendered "provender." The word properly signifies a mixture, a medley. Gesenius (Heb. Lex.) says, "The two latter passages are most clearly understood by a reference to the Roman farrago (Pliny, Hist. Nat.), consisting of barley or oats, mixed with vetches and beans, which. were sown and reaped together."

Rome, where Benedict XIV gave him a place in the pontifical academy of history, and made him sub-librarian at the Vatican. In 1775 he succeeded Bottari as librarian. He died at Rome May 31, 1783. He devoted great part of his life to the ;study,. of the MSS. of the Vatican; and published, besides the works already mentioned, Epiphanius, De.
