BY THE REV. JOHN GORDON LORIMER,

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time,
to recover the remnant of his people which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from
Fathros, and from Cnsh, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamalh, and from the
islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts
of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The
envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall
not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vlx Ephraim." — Isaiah xi. 11 — 13.

THE RESTORATION AND CONVERSION OF THE JEWS. BY THE REV. JOHN GORDON LORIMER, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of his people which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Fathros, and from Cnsh, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamalh, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vlx Ephraim." — Isaiah xi. 11 — 13. You are all aware of the object of our  present meeting. I have been requested and prevailed upon, though surrounded  by many much better qualified, to preach the annual sermon in behalf of the Glas-gow Society for promoting Christianity among the Jews. In fulfilling this en-

The claims of other societies may be advo-cated without much special reference to their object; but the arguments in be-half of this society are, like the people themselves, peculiar, and the subject requires a peculiar treatment. Nor is this the less called for, that there seems to be no little indifference felt, and mis-apprehension entertained, as to the Jewish cause, considered as a whole. There is much connected with the Jews which would supply us with an important and interesting theme of contemplation — there is little, indeed, connected with their history and prospects which might not  be so improved ; but the theme to which I would at present restrict your attention is, their future conversion to the faith of Christ, and restoration to their own land. This theme is a very pleasing one — much more pleasing than many parts of their

hi'tory. The consideration of it will tend to enlarge our acquaintance with Scrip-ture ; and, I trust, it will be found not inappropriate to the benevolent object of this meeting, but fruitful in motives and encouragements to induce us to contribute to the christianization of so remarkable a  people.  None, I presume, need to be told who the Jews are : all, even the least informed, are pretty well aware of their origin and history. By the early reading of the Scriptures, they are introduced to our knowledge at a tender age : we frequently read of them in maturer years; nay, as faithful students of the Scriptures, they are continually brought before us in some aspect of their character or history. We often hear of them from travellers and others ; and sometimes we behold a few
