Excerpt from The Hebrew Prophets for English Readers in the Language of the Revised Version of the English Bible, Printed in Their Poetical Form, With Headings and Brief Annotation, Vol. 1 of 4: Amos, Hosea, Isaiah (1-39), And Micah
In order to avoid unnecessary repetitions we have placed an obelus (1) outside those marginal readings which we believe to be distinctly preferable to the text.
It may be felt by some that such an edition tends to lay too much stress on the literary at the expense of the religious and spiritual character of the prophetic writings. Our answer to such an objection is that the present religious value of the prophets is only fully realised by those who clearly understand, in all its bearing, the character of the message which they were called upon to deliver to the men of their own time and country. It is, moreover, no depreciation of a jewel to draw attention to the beauty of the casket in which it is placed.
