    They were wont to adorn their Rabbins and doctors with swelling and magnificent titles of Lights.
    "Ay tradition.  His name is not R. Meir, but Nehorai.  Why, therefore, is he called R. Meir?  Because he enlightens the eyes, by the Traditions of Wise men.  And yet his name is not Nehorai neither, but R. Nehemiah.  Why then is he called R. Nehorai?  Because he enlightens the eyes, by the Traditions of Wise men."�O blessed luminaries without light!  Begone, ye shades of night! for the Sun of righteousness hath now displayed himself! (The Whole Works of the Rev. John Lightfoot, Pitman, v.12, 1823)
