This chapter studies David Darshan's Shir HaMa'alot L'David and Ktaw Hitnazzelut L'Darshanim (1984). This book contains the original Hebrew text in facsimile of two small books by David the Preacher; an English translation with notes; and an Introduction in English in which David is seen against his background in 16th-century Poland. David was an associate of the giants of that period, Moses Isserles and Solomon Luria, and was himself no mean Talmudist. David was the first itinerant Jewish preacher whose sermons were published; an amulet writer; and an artist. The chapter then considers several problems connected with the translation of these difficult texts and it cannot be said that all of them have been successfully overcome.
