Excerpt from Notes, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Exodus, Vol. 2 of 2: Designed as a General Help to Biblical Reading and Instruction
The form of government which prevailed among the descendants of Abraham, prior to the time of Moses, was the patriarchal. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, governed their respective families in virtue of that paternal authority which was, in the early ages of the world, universally conceded to the fathers and heads of households. The families thus governed were the natural germs of tribes, every one of which obeyed its own prince (nan: nasi), who was originally the first born of the founder of the tribe, but in progress of time appears to have been elected. Ip proportion as the numbers of the tribes were argmented their heads or plriarclu became powerful chieftains, and under the title of princes, elders, and heads of tribes, answered very nearly to the MM: and mire of the Bedouin Arabs and other nomads races of modern times spread over the regions of the East.
