Incline thine ear, and hear my words, Give thine ear, and hear what I And apply thine heart to apprehend; say,
For it is pleasant if thou keep them and apply thine heart to apprehend;
In thy belly, it is good for thee to place them
That they may be fixed like a peg upon in thine heart,
Thy lips. Let them rest in the casket of thy belly
That they may act as a peg upon thy tongue
Bow down thine ear, and hear the
Words of the wise, and apply thine
Heart unto my knowledge

Keep them within thee; they shall

Isaac asimov, a noted scientist and writer, in Asimov’s Guide To The Bible: The Old And New Testaments (1981 Edition), indicated that the bible was first translated into another language in the course of the third century b.c. And that other language was greek. This greek version was, according to tradition, based on the work of seventy learned scholars, and it is therefore known as the septuagint, from a latin word meaning “seventy.” in the septuagint the various books of the bible were given greek names. The first book was named “genesis,” which means, literally, “coming into being.” he said it implied a concern with births and beginnings which is appropriate for a book that begins with the creation of heaven and earth. By ancient tradition, the first five books of the bible were written by moses, the folk hero who, according to the account given in the second through fifth books, rescured the israelites from [black african] egyptian slavery.
Modern scholars, Asimov indicates, are convinced that this theory of authorship is not tenable and that the early books of the bible are not the single work of any man. Rather they are the combined and carefully edited version of a number of sources.
Despite this, the full name of the first book of the bible as commonly given in english translation remains “the first book 0f Moses, called Genesis.” the first five books of the bible give not only the traditional history of the ancestors of the israelite people, but also describe a legal code as having been given to Moses by god and by moses to the israelites generally. Because of Moses’ traditional role in what was, in actual fact, a set of laws that1 developed slowly over the centuries, the whole is termed the “Mosaic Law” or, more simply still, “The Law.” the Hebrew word for the first five books is “Torah,” which is the Hebrew word for “law.” the Greek word for the first five books is “Pentateuch” (“five books”).
In recent times, it has been recognized that the sixth book of the bible is closely connected with the first five and is derived from similar sources.
All six books being referred to as the “Hexateuch” (“six books”).
Isaac Asimov, Asimov’s Guide To The Bible: The Old And New Testaments (1981) divides the bible into periods of history:
The period from the beginnings of the earliest civilizations, say 4000 B.C. to 100 A.B. Is lumped together as “the “Biblical Period.” Of The Ancient Near East.
