It is my purpose to show in what manner and to what extent these threatenings of the almighty God were pronounced upon his chosen people, the children of Israel, the Jews. We will consider their dispersion in the Western world. In the early centuries the Jews of Egypt, Palestine, and Asia Minor were called Western Jews in distinction from those who were carried away to Babylon and the plains of Assyria. According to the modern division, the Jews of Egypt, Judea, and Greece are included among the eastern Jews, in distinction to those of Spain, Germany, and England. We here retain the former division.
