BEAUTY OF HOLINESS
Two Thousand Reflective Passages,
SELECTED FOR MEDITATION,
FROM THE SACRED WRITINGS.
WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.
PSALM XXIX. 2.
WHO STRIVE TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH THE
THREE CHRISTIAN GRACES,
FAITH, HOPE, AND CHARITY,
WITH SENTIMENTS OF THE DEEPEST RESPECT,
SOW TO YOURSELVES IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, REAP IN MERCY: BREAK UP YOUR FALLOW GROUND: FOR IT IS TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, TILL HE COME AND RAIN RIGHTEOUSNESS UPON YOU.
Hosea x. 12. PREFACE.
DURING the present century, two works of selections from the Sacred Writings have been published, of an analogous character to the present volume, both of which have been for many years out of print. The Compilers of this selection, having had occasion to refer to these laborious and praiseworthy compilations, found them greatly deficient in clearness of arrangement, for the purposes of meditation and constant reference. The idea consequently suggested itself, that if the same description of matter was more carefully selected, and methodically placed before the reader, an acceptable service might be rendered to those, whose happiest moments are spent in reflecting upon the great truths which abound throughout the Inspired Volume.
