Judaeo-german Version of the Scriptures

Judaeo-German Version Of The Scriptures Like the above, this is the German New Test. in rabbinical characters. The first edition of this testament was printed at Cracow in 1540; the work was executed by John Herzuge, a converted Jew, on the basis of Luther's version; but the book of Revelation is omitted. In 1820 the London Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews undertook to furnish the German Jews with copies of the German Scriptures in rabbinical characters. The society's first edition appeared in 1820: the German text was from Luther's version, published by Meyer at Frankfort in 1819, and the transcription into rabbinical characters was made by Mr. Judah D'Allemand of London. In 1859 the British and Foreign Bible Society published the Judaeo-German Old Test., under the care of Reverend R. Konig, and in 1869 the book of Psalms, carefully revised by Reverend W. Edwards of Breslau, was printed at Vienna. (B.P.)
