not to make the second volume too bulky. The division
chosen is a natural one. This volume closes with the Exodus,
and contains the deeds of Moses in Egypt, while the following
volume will deal with Moses in the desert.

Moses may appear strange to some readers, since in the
Bible Job is one of the last books; but "legend is above time
and space," and I have, therefore, given Job the place which
legend has ascribed to him.
