This is Dr. Robert Wilson’s inaugural address he gave at Princeton on September 21, 1900 which discusses lower criticism, the necessary elements to be studied in order to respond to attacks on the Bible from Higher Criticism, which he defines as composed of three elements: text, grammar, lexicon/lexicography.  He also makes some useful points about studying Biblical Hebrew and understanding the theological presuppositions of the authors of a lexicon  when using it to study the meaning of a particular Hebrew word and when using Hebrew grammars.
