Excerpt from The Oldest Code of Laws in the World: The Code of Laws Promulgated By, Hammurabi, King of Babylon, B. C. 2285 2242 Such was the effect produced on the minds of succeeding generations by this superb codi fication of the judicial decisions of past ages, which had come to be regarded as 'the right, ' that two thousand years and more later it was made a text-book for study in the schools of Babylonia, being divided for that purpose into some twelve chapters, and eu titled, after the Semitic custom, Nina ilu simm, from its opening words. In Assyria also, in the seventh century b.c., it was studied in a different edition, apparently under the name of The Judgments of Righteousness which Hammurabi, the great king, set up.' These facts point to it as certain to affect Jewish views before and after the Exile, in a way that we may expect to find as funda mental as the Babylonian influence in cos mology or religion.
