sition to this translation, as far as I know, I advise the reader to re^
ceive it only upon his own experienOe.

In the earliest ages poetry and music were united, and poeti(
compositions were sung in a species of extemporaneous melody; ii
some such manner as our Indian warriors deliver their harangues; oi
as the African ladies s^ng, when Mr. Park was the subject of theii
song. But the equality in the lengths, and similarity in the constriic
tion of scwne of the sentences in Hebrew poetry, prove, that the Jcw^
had arrived at a refined or artificial harmonious arrangement of sylj
lables. " Harmony arises from the proportion, relation, and corresj
pondence of different combined sounds; and verse from the arrange^
ment of words, and the disposition of syllables according to the num^
ber, quantity, and accent'* « But the true pronunciation of Hebre^
is lost."—" The number of syllables is, in a great many words, m
certain; the quantity and accent wholly unknown."* 'WhsX therefor^

unto the grammatical inflections; yet the change in signification is
by no means uniform. Many verbs have different, and often opposite
