Excerpt from The Rites and Worship of the Jews as Described in the Bible, and by Jewish Writers

A rite is a solemn outward act of worship. It is hardly necessary to say, that by worshipping, is meant showing honour and respect; and by religious worship, is meant endeavouring to show honour and respect to the Almighty Being, to God, who made the earth and all things therein, and to whom man looks with the hope and desire that He will cause his never-dying soul to be happy for ever. The Bible is the word of God. It tells us about God. It tells us how God was worshipped in former times, and how he is to be worshipped now.

Three times or periods are particularly and separately mentioned in the Bible, called dispensations, in each of which it has been God's will that he should be worshipped in a different manner, as to outward rites. The first is the Patriarchal dispensation. This includes the period from the time when Adam and Eve left paradise, till the law was given from Mount Sinai. The history of the Patriarchal dispensation is to be found in the chapters from the third of Genesis to the twentieth of Exodus. The second is the Mosaic or Levitical dispensation. The account of this occupies the rest of the Old Testament, and also includes the history of the Jews till the coming of Christ.
