Title translates into English as, "Sefat Yeter, in defense of Saadia Gaon against Dunash ben Labra? , whose criticism of Saadia, Ibn Ezra had brought with him from Egypt. ” This is the first German publication of this smaller work by Ibn Ezra which was previously published in Bratislava (1838) . “Rabbi Abraham ben Meir Ibn Ezra (1089–1167) was one of the most distinguished Jewish biblical commentators and philosophers of the Middle Ages… in his own commentary of the Pentateuch, wrote scathing remarks on Saadia's commentary, saying: ‘He doesn't have an oral tradition […] perhaps he has a vision in a dream, while he has already erred with respect to certain places […]; therefore, we will not rely on his dreams. ’” (Wikipedia, 2017) This 1843 Franfurt Edition includes a forward in German from the historian and widely read writer Markus Isaak Jost, who was a close friend of Leopold Zunz, and was published by Rabbi Gabriel Hirsch Lippmann of Bad Kissingen. OCLC lists 20 copies worldwide. Ex-library with Jewish Instutional Stamp and Usual Markings. Some foxing. Overall very good condition. (GER-59-63).
