Abstract

(several eds., two excellent Spanish translations and one terrible English one). On the citation of Ibn Zabara as well as the matters discussed by Talmage on p. 50 of the introduction, see Judith Dishon's splendid edition (Jerusalem, 1985, p. 218; if Talmage did not see this edition, the editors again surely must have) which cites Davidson, whose edition Talmage did see, yet ignored. These matters aside, the commentary which is of most importance is that of Joseph, while the most disappointing-and even useless-is that of Moses. (Incidentally, the Oxford text [So R. Driver], attributed to Ibn 'Ezra, was also reprinted in Kitvey R' [sic] Avraham Ibn 'Ezra [Jerusalem, 1972], vol. 5; not mentioned by Talmage, nor did he make it clear that the Oxford MS was the one edited by Driver; see his vague remarks, pp. 18-19 of the introduction.) David Qiml:ti's commentary lies somewhere in between these two and is of little value to anyone other than a student of his work. Bible scholars as well as students of medieval Jewish commentaries may benefit, however, from Joseph's fascinating commentary. Talmage's introduction, for all its faults, provides an adequate guide to some of the more important observations. Norman
