From 1830 to 1833 he was Professor of Sacred Literature and Librarian at Andover, and from 1837 until his death was Professor of Biblical Literature in the Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Dr. Robinson visited Palestine in 1838, and, with Rev. Eli Smith, made a minute survey of it, an account of which was published in Halle, London, and Boston in 1841. He made a second visit in 1852, the result of which was published in 1856. Dr. Robinson's researches in Palestine are regarded by Biblical scholars as of the first importance. At the time of his death he was engaged upon a physical and historical geography of the Holy Land.

He died in New York City, Jan. 27, 1863.
