comes chasing; with plastic material, molding. It is a very ancient art, having been employed in Assyria, Babylon, Persepolis, Egypt, and Greece upon chariots, furniture, weapons, and many other objects. It was about 1491 B. C. that Bezaleel, of the tribe of Judah, was specially selected for his skill as a workman in gold, silver, brass, gem cutting and setting, and carving in wood, and was commissioned to execute the work upon the Tabernacle and its furniture. Aholiab, of the tribe of Dan, was his first assistant, and he had other coadjutors not mentioned by name. The Egyptians, among whom Moses, Bezaleel, and others, had been educated, were justly renowned for their skill and taste in carving, as is abundantly shown by their chairs, biers, couches, arms, chariots, musical instruments, and other articles cited under their respective heads in this work. To mention one specially, their chairs left little to be desired or attempted either in comfort, beauty, or upholstering. S

C.), in assigning prophetically the dwelling of Zebulon, placed him at the haven of the sea, and he shall be for a haven of ships, and his border unto Zidon. Zebulon failed, it may be mentioned, to possess the land assigned to the full extent. The same may be said of Dan, Simeon, and other tribes for a period of nearly five hundred years after Joshua led them across Jordan. The prophecy of Balaam, about 1452 B. C., that Assyria should be destroyed by people who should come in ships from the coast of Chittim, was more than 1,000 years before the accomplishment. The deportation of the Jews to Egypt in ships under the Ptolemies and Titus was foretold by Moses, about 1450 B. C., as the result that follows unfaithfulness on the part of the people whom he led a
