Excerpt: ... We know that our present Hebrew text is defective in certain places, and there is no reason to doubt that this may be one of them. When Toy says that "the Septuagint verse has been expanded by scribes by the paraphrastic addition of material " from certain psalms, he indulges his fancy too much. There is absolutely no evidence of such intentional tampering with the sacred text. The chapter from which the quotation is taken is the song of Moses. It was regarded by the Jews as predicting and depicting the reign of the Messiah in glory.
