5. In Luther's Bible, published in Wittenburg, 1557, there is a

figure 1 placed against the third verse as indicating that here

began the creation of the Mosaic world. Professor E. J. Young

remarks upon the pause: "The word  (at the end of verse

1) is separated from what follows by means of the disjunctive

accent Rebhîa, and so we are to let our thoughts dwell upon it

before pas sing on to (what follows)". The fact is also referred

to by Jamieson, Fausset and Brown in their "Commentary:

Critical, Experimental, and Practical", Ceilings, Glascow

1871, Vol.1, Gen. - Deut., p.3: "In many Hebrew MSS there

is the usual mark of a pause".
