George Rapall Noyes (1798-1868) was born in Newburyport, Mass. He studied theology at Harvard College, and thereafter was ordained a Unitarian minister. In 1840 he became professor of Hebrew and Oriental languages and lecturer on Biblical literature at Harvard. Early in his career he became interested in translating parts of the Bible. He first translated the...Book of Job, which was followed by the Psalms (1831), the Prophets (3 vols, 1833-37), and Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Canticles, in 1848."--Hills #592, p.92.
