their own sacred books declare them to be at present not the people of God; not in covenant relation with God, but in a state of blindness and separation.

Of the nature and cause of this blindness they themselves can give no rational or consistent account; while, upon the Christian scheme, it is at once accounted for. Such is a summary of some of the leading facts and arguments which unite in demonstrating that Jesus is the Messiah; and no answer has been made, in David Levi's work on the prophecies, to any one of these proofs of the divine mission of Jesus.

We cannot close these remarks, without an earnest and most affectionate invitation to the ancient people of God, seriously to ponder the arguments advanced in the preceding pages ; and to examine the Scriptures, whether these arguments be well founded or not. And oh that there were in the Jews such a disposition as to lead them now to adopt, as the language of their hearts, the pathetic prayers put into


their mouths by the evangelical prophet Isaiah, in reference to the period of their restoration! O Lord, why hast thou made us to err from 'thy ways; and hardened our hearts from thy • fear? Return, for thy servant's sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. The people of thy ' holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanc6 tuary. We are thine: thou never barest ' rule over them; they were not called by thy 'name.' (Isaiah Ixiii. 17—19.) And, again, 'Be not wroth very sore, O Lord; neither ' remember iniquity for ever. Behold, see, we 'beseech thee, we are all thy people! Thy holy 'cities are a wilderness; Zion is a wilderness; 'Jerusalem a desolation! Our holy and our

beautiful house, where our fathers praised 'Thee, is burned up with fire; and all our plea'sant things are laid waste. Wilt thou refrain

thyself for these things, O Lord? wilt thou 'hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?? (Isaiah Ixiv. 9-12.) We conclude, in the

language of the pious psalmist, Blessed be the 'Lord God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous

things; and blessed be his glorious name for 'ever; and let the whole earth be filled with his

glory! Amen, and Amen.'
