JEREMIAH, xviii, 7-10.
“ At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a king-
dom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; if that nation,
against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the
evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak
concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
if it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then will I repent of
the good wherewith I said I would benefit them” . . . . 229
Luke, xiii. 34, 35.
“ O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that
are sent unto thee: how often would I have gathered thy children toge-
ther, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not !
Behold your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, ye
shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that
cometh in the name of the Lord"
