The early geographers called it Ekdippa ; now ez-Zib. In the S. Jer All these are of a simple type, and are so planned that the initials recurring at fixed intervals follow the order of the Hebrew alphabet; thus the first section of the poem begins with the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, aleph ; the second with the second letter, beth ; and so on down to the twenty-second and last letter, taw.
The interval between the several letters consists of a regular number of lines. In Pss , this interval is one line; in Pss 25, 34, , Pr —31, Sir —30, and in the fragment, which does not clearly extend beyond the thirteenth letter, contained in Nah 1, the interval is 2 lines; in La 4 it is 2 longer lines, in chs. In La 3, where the interval between each successive letter of the alphabet is 3 long lines, each of each set of three lines begins with the same letter; and similarly in Ps , where the interval is 16 lines, each alternate line within each set of 16 begins with the same letter.
Certainly in La 2, 3 and 4, and, according to the order of the verses in the LXX, in Pr 31, probably also in Ps 34 where the sense seems to require the transposition of v. The reason for this is unknown. Comparatively few of these poems have come down to us intact.

Occasionally lines have been inserted, as, apparently, in more than one place in Ps 37, and in Nah But such corruption of the text is really serious only in Ps 9 f.

Gray], or Driver, Century Bible , p. Summary of contents. The two parts overlap each other; yet a clear division occurs at , from which point forwards the Pauline journeys are described by one who for a considerable part of them was a fellow-traveller. Though this conclusion is arbitrary, the parallelism shows us that the author, whoever he was, selected his facts with great care and with a set purpose. Unity of authorship.
But some assert that the author of Acts was a later writer who incorporated in his work extracts from a diary contemporary with the events described. These critics see in the book traces of four strata, and assert that it is a compilation of the same nature as the Pentateuch, the Book of Enoch , and the Apostolic Constitutions.
Now no doubt our author used sources, in some parts of his book written sources. But if he were a 2nd cent. Further, the Third Gospel is clearly, from identity of style and the express claim in Ac cf. Lk , by our author, and yet the Gospel is now generally admitted to have been written by c.

On the other hand, it must be said that against his having been a native of Philippi are the facts that he had no home there, but went to lodge with Lydia , and that he only supposed that there was a Jewish place of prayer at Philippi RV.

Thus he does not relate the events of the years spent by St. Paul in Tarsus , probably as being years of education in which no striking event occurred. So he tells us practically nothing of the missionary journey through Cyprus , though much work must have been done among the Jews then; while great space is given to the epoch-making interview with Sergius Paulus.
