With Practical ObservationsThis chapter contams three prophecies, the firft Of which foretold the calling of the Gentiles the fe cond the 1ejeétion Ofthe Jews, and the third the de firuélion ofthe wicked, who are the enemies Of God. We fee the completion ofthefe prophecies. The feve ral nations Of the world have been called to the know ledge oi the true God by the gofpel, and are come into the church, and made partakers of the covenant Of God the Jews have been rejeéted, by reafon of their fins, and their incredulity, and God has 111 all times confounded the pride and power Ofthe ungodly, and the, enemies of hiskingdom. The ufe then we ﬂ1ould make of reading this chapter is, to be very fen fible of the.great advantage werenjoy in being in the number Of thofe whom God has admitted into his church, and to exprefs our g1atitude by a fince1e en deavour to know, his will, by feuing him with pu1ity and zeal, and by walkiiig in his way. We lhould improve, by the example of the Jews, and by the judgments which are denounced againl t thole who oppofe God, left by our 1ebellion we expofe omfelves to thole dieadful judgments, which he will pou1 upon the wicked, and on all thole who do not iet e1ence his power.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
