The Animals Mentioned in the Bible
London: Religious Tract Society, 1888; Series: Scripture Natural History II
A list with commentary on the animals mentioned in the Jude-Christian bible.
The writer's method has been to take in alphabetical order every animal mentioned in the Bible, and to deal with each so as to draw especial attention to the characteristics alluded to in the various references. Where the translation seems to be doubtful, either from the nature of the context, or from the fact that the same word has elsewhere received a different rendering in the Scriptures, or because the animal quoted does not now and probably did not inhabit Palestine — in these cases what appeared to be the most probable of the various suggestions offered by different commentators has been given, leaving the reader to judge for himself in accordance with the weight of evidence.
