Tm: object of this book is to present, in a form adapted for general readers, an impartial sketch of the state of morality among the Hebrew people for some centuries after they had settled down as an organized people among the nationalities of Western Asia. Such a period was necessarily transitional. The customs and modes of thought characteristic of a nomadic life were being slowly transformed under the in?uence of a new environment. A loose assem blage of clans had gained a footing among the hills on the western side of the Jordan valley, and thei pressure of circumstances had forced them into a i somewhat discordant unity under the rule of despotic kings. The Kingdom of Israel took its place side by side with the petty monarchies of E gum, Mogb, and Ammon, which maintained a precarious existence on or near the great roadways between the mighty empires occupying the valleys of the Euphrates and the Nile. It entered into diplomatic relations, it engaged in trade and commerce, and it gradually acquired, with the assistance of its older neighbours, the habits of semi-civilised life.
