Ibn-Shoeib, Joel

Resource Toolbox

a Jewish commentator, flourished at Tudela in the latter half of the 15th century. But little is known of his personal history. His works show him to have been a man of considerable culture and great liberality of mind. He wrote commentaries on the Pentateuch, entitled The Holocaust of Sabbath (Ven. 1577); on the Psalms, entitled Fearful in Praises (Salonaica, 1568- 69); on the Song of Songs, entitled A brief Exposition (Sabionetta, 1558); and an Exposition of Lamentations (Venice, 1589). In his commentary on the Psalms he maintained that pious Gentiles would have a share in the world to come, which, when we consider the severe persecutions they inflicted at this time on the Jews, is by no means a small concession on the part of Ion-Shoeib. Kitto, Cyclop. of Bib. Lit. 2, 358; Zunz, Zur Gesch. u. Literatur (Berl. 1845), p. 384. (J. H.W.)
