David. This name is written without i, in the books composed before the captivity, (the year before Christ 588) but i is inserted in the latter works, which is an argument against the antiquities of Canticles, where the i is found.

Hebron, after the death of Isboseth, 2 Kings v. (Calmet)
Flesh; related, as the children of Jacob.
