" The tender and delicate woman, which would not adven-ture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness,her eye shall be evil towards the husband of her bosom, and to-wards her son, and towards her daughter, and towards her infant ;for she shall eat them, for want of all things, secretly in the siege."Ver. 56, 57.6.

" And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neithershall the sole of thy foot have rest." Deut. 28 : 65.13. " And thou shait be oppressed and spoiled evermore, andno man shall save thee." Ver. 29.14. " Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto anotherpeople, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them allthe day long." Ver. 32.15.

" The generation to come of your children, and the stran-ger from a far land, shall say. What meaneth the heat of this greatanger ? Then men shall say. Because they have forsaken the cov-enant of the Lord God of their fathers, which he made with them
when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, the Lordrooted them out of their land in anger and in wratli, and in greatindignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day."Deut. 29 : 22-28.Here is the prophecy ; on which it may be observed,1.
