Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
But we don't happen to agree Malcolm that the biblical explanation is irrelevant. The Victorians would certainly not have considered it so.

Biblical names were of great importance to them and I certainly consider it possible that it was considered an adequate description of hounds "running and trumpeting".

It impossible to attribute the language of today to the times when this song was written.
