...notion of equality, the condemnation of class distinction, and the struggle against the claim to property, source of these differences.” Now this lesson is present in the mind of the Muslim; he is perfectly conscious of it and his spririt is filled with it the moment he enters the mosque; yes, the moment he enters, he realizes that the mosque belongs to God and not to any one of his creatures; he knows himself to be the equal of all those who are there, whoever they may be; here there are no great, no small, no high, no low, no more groups or classes. And when...

...pages. Presses were operated by hand at a rate that did not—indeed could not comfortably—exceed a certain speed. Paper was made, sheet by sheet, by hand: the maximum width of the mould ( see mould, paper ), and therefore of the sheet it made, was limited by the maker’s natural arm span, typically about 30in. or 76cm. The earliest datable image of a *printing office is a woodcut in a book printed in 1499 . During the first part of the 16 th century, representations of the printing office were symbolic of the trade, and appear on several *title-pages ....

...and make her appear more ‘feminine’ ( Moore 1985 ; see Isa 3:16 ). The connection to Isaiah may also suggest that ‘earrings’ should be translated ‘nose-ring’ ( Moore 1985 ). Thus she presents a picture of pampered helplessness. On the other hand, perhaps she should be seen as arming herself for battle. Bedecked with jewellery and dressed to kill, she intended to draw the attention of any man who saw her. Then, accompanied by her maid, who carried a skin of wine, jug of oil, and bag with roasted grain, fig cakes, and bread, she ventured to the city gate....

...the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, by imposing hard labour on us, we cried to the Lord, the God of our ancestors; the Lord heard our voice and saw our afflictions, our toil and our oppression. The Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; and he brought us into this place. Two other features of von Rad's position were important: belief in the ‘Solomonic Enlightenment’, a period in the tenth century in which the traditions relating to Israel's faith...

...of normal, human warfare and its consequences ( vv. 11, 12 b ). The oracle thus reinforces its claim that victory over Egypt belongs to the Divine Warrior. Nebuchadrezzar's army represents merely the human aspect of YHWH's triumphant day. Pharaoh's Broken Arm and Nebuchadrezzar's Strong Arm ( 30:20–6 ). In an oracle dated to April 587 bce YHWH reiterates both his condemnations of Pharaoh ( see ch. 29 ) and his announcement that he will place his own divine sword in Nebuchadrezzar's hand ( cf. 30:10–11; ch. 21 ). The date, like that of 29:1 , locates...

...both ( cf. Prov 22:2 and 29:13 for the same attitude with reference to rich and poor). In v. 22 the full form of the oath occurs for the third time; in this instance the punishment fits the crime; aggression leads to further aggression, the abusive fist to a broken and useless arm. The three oaths in vv. 24–8 deal with various forms of idolatry (gold, wealth in general, worship of heavenly bodies) but lack a specific punishment. The gesture mentioned in v. 27 , the mouth kissing the hand, may allude to a Babylonian expression for a gesture of obeisance in...

...they teach you’ refers to their reading of Scripture, ‘they do’ to Pharisaic doctrine and practice. ‘Phylacteries’ ( v. 5 ) are the two black leather boxes containing parchment Scriptures that, since at least the second century bce , have been commonly worn on the upper left arm and forehead following the literal understanding of Ex 13:9, 16; Deut 6:8; 11:18 . Their ostentatious and superstitious use can be documented (cf. Christian use of medallions and crosses). ‘Fringes’ (which Jesus himself wears: 9:20; 14:36 ) consist of blue and/or white threads...
