a missionary among the Jews, and an excellent Hebrew scholar, who died June 15, 1883, at Presburg, in the employ of the British Society for Jewish Missions, is the author of a Hebrew translation of Philosophy of the Plan of Salvation (Altona, 1858). Besides translating into Hebrew Milton's Paradise Lost, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, he published The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans, translated from the original Greek (Edinburgh, 1855). At the time of his death lie had finished a Hebrew translation of the New Test., which was edited by Dr. Ch. D. Ginsburg of England, and published at the expense of the English Trinitarian Bible Society at the imperial press of K. Fromme, in Vienna. The translation has been made in "classical Hebrew idiom," but "in seeking for elegance of language, exegetical and historical correctness, which are always closely connected with correctness of language, has been lost." See Theologisches Literaturblatt (Leipsic, 1885, Nos. 45, 46, 47). (B.P.)
