* I will bring.
Jos 10:12-14 2Ki 20:11 2Ch 32:24,31 Mt 16:1
* the sun dial. Heb. the degrees by, or, with the sun.
Or, as the Hebrew might be rendered, "the steps of Ahaz." The
researches of curious travellers in Hindostan, observes Bp.
Stock, have lately discovered in that country, three
observatories of similar form, the most remarkable of which is
to be seen within four miles of Delhi, the ancient capital of
the Mogul empire. A rectangled triangle, whose hypotenuse is
a staircase, (apparently parallel to the axis of the earth,)
bisects a zone, or coping of a wall, which wall connects the
two terminating towers at right and left. The coping itself
is of a circular form, and accurately graduated, to mark, by
the gnomon above, the sun's progress before and after noon.
