Jewish influence also contributed to mediaeval thought a The turbid stream of cabalistic tinge of Oriental mysticism.

The trustful confidence so manifest, even where one could hardly have expected it, is most refreshing to find such an unwavering faith in God in this age of scepticism and general doubt. For 1,800 years, since they were driven from the city and temple, they have been drifting upon the sands of time, and yet they have kept alive the hope of a glorious return, and unequalled prosperity. In proving the existence of this belief, I refer you to one of their greatest writers and commentators, Maimonides. The real name of He was born A.D. this man was Moses-ben-Maimon. The Jews seem almost unable to express their 1137. admiration of him, hence the extraordinary titles which " The Great Eagle," they gave him.

:

3. Then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee. "If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee.

that he would gather and unite them again. Now, as the first part of the prophecy is fulfilled, undoubtedly the latter part likewise shall be fulfilled. Q. "Is not the latter part of that promise already fulfilled at the building of the second temple ? A. " No, for it was only a small part of the people that returned, and exercised religious service after the building of the temple. As to the ten tribes, nothing has been heard with certainty concerning their abode. Besides, the building of that temple has been attended with difficulties, and its glory was far from being as great as that of the first, neither did any prophet exist When a restoration takes place, upon at that time.

God's promise, and upon His commandment, it will not be a partial one, but surely to the whole extent. When this restoration takes place all will be virtuous,

The Eev. Charles Foster, B.D., in his work on the monuments of Assyria, produces abundant evidence of
the existence of several portions of the Jewish people in Persia and in Afghan territory. In his introduction to a chapter on the "Lost Tribes of Israel," he writes, " The most interesting problem in the history of the world, as yet unsolved, unquestionably is the national existence and local habitation of the ten lost tribes of Israel. The fact of the existence, indeed, stands certified by the sure word of prophecy.' He informs us of the black Jews, whose countenance is decidedly Jewish, and who claim to have descended from the parent stock in Judaea.

One of the rabbis said to Mr. Wolfe, " None of the Jews scattered in the world expect with more anxiety the restoration than the scattered Jews throughout Persia. We cannot tell what our people suffer; we are The Turks claim in daily fear of robbery and murder. the right to despoil them and theirs any day they Five lovely daughters were dragged away from please.

had any tradition as to their fathers. The rabbi said, " We belong to Judah, and were of those who were
taken captive, but our fathers never returned." The " " " We dare not traveller asked, Why not go now ? without the permission of the Sultan, or of the govThe rabbi was ernor; they would not allow us." asked as to his knowledge of the ten tribes. " Some of them are at Bokhara, most of them are lost," was his answer. The Rev. Jacob Samuel, a Jew, claims for the Jews at Daghistan that they are of the remnant -of Israel. They observe the three great festivals they keep the

They were very anxious to get a copy of the Psalms of David. Those people have the clearest and strongest convictions upon their minds of a return to their own land. They all believe that God has promised it to them, and that He surely will make that promise good. This is faith in the midst of many discouragements. It is clearly seen to the minds of all close students that the whole of those Eastern lands Persia, Afghan, .and ancient Syria have here and there remnants of .those Jews who were carried away to Babylon, and Jiaving found homes and employment refused to return from that country, and that others at later dates have gone east and joined them; and thus we find the Jewish countenance more or less distinctly marked. Those outcasts, as many call them, are net forgotten by God for He hears their prayer, and He has " I will bring them from the east and from ipromised, .the west, and from the land of Sinim." Those Jews in Persia and Afghan may yet, when the time comes, have an important part to take in the

JEWS NOT ISRAEL.
I have heard men say there are no distinctions between Judah and Israel, and we are not warranted in looking for any fragment of the once great Hebrew To the people outside of the present Jewish family. law and to the testimony, I claim that there is a clear distinction, strong and striking, running through all the prophecies and promises referring to the future of the Hebrew race. Let us see what saith the word of the Lord on this point ? This distinction is of great im;

portance to the right understanding of the Scriptures. I affirm that they are two nations, and that they

have undergone two different courses of discipline; both nations have passed under the rod the dealings of God to them have been distinctly marked, and a wide difference is seen in His method of dealing with them. I believe that this distinction, so mysterious and so disciplinary, will not terminate in an uncertain and undefined manner but will, in a most marked and wonderful way, show the divine faithfulness and

Here, at this exodus, we have a dim outline of what In Samuel's day they were numbered
:

separately (1 Samuel xi.) 8. "And when he numbered them

in Bezek, the children of Israel

were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand."

Lord Arthur Harvey, Bishop of Bath, says, " The separate mention of Judah shows how little union there was between Judah and the other tribes of that
early day." JJavid reigned seven years over

Judah before they

Jeremiah xxxiii. 24 speaks of them as " the two He has for families which the Lord hath chosen." wiso purposes kept them apart for 2350 years. The time for their union has not yet come.

and in the hand of the Lord through the cross of Christ, of which the two sticks are significant emblems. Here you see explained the crossing of the patriarch's hands as he blessed Ephraim and Manasseh. In this chapter Ezekiel saw the awakening, identity and restoration of those people so long separated and he saw the two sceptres, each distinct, and then united, and the one king chosen by both, and he of David's line, and the purification, and the divine protection, and the permanent sanctuary, and the obedience most complete and, as a result of the whole, the conversion of the heathen nation to

THE CYMBI.
This theory furnishes the only -satisfactory key to the numerous quotations and references in ancient history and in classic story to the house of Omri, and to the house of Khumri, and to their migratioms westward. All our antiquarians and historians have noticed how frequently this name appears in various forms and under different circumstances. I can only give a brief glance here and there, where I find this people referred to on rocks and obelisks, tombs and monuments. In 1. Kings xvi. 16-25, we read of one Omri, King of Israel, who purchased a site for a new city, for which he paid silver amounting to $3,220 of our money, and there he founded a capital for his kingdom called Samaria. This city was afterwards called after His name its founder the city of Khomri and Kymri. thus became famous and was engraven in the rock forever.

KYMRY.
author, the late Thomas Stephens, in his work on the Literature of the Kymry, writes as follows " On the map of Britain is a group of counties
:

A modern

called Wales, their neighbors call them Welshmen. Welsh or Walsch, is not a proper name, but a Teutonic term signifying strangers, and applying to all persons not of that family; but the proper name of these people is Kymry. They are the last remnant of the Kimmerioi of Homer, and of the Kymry (Cimbri) of Germany. The word Kymry is in reality the plural of Kymro, meaning Welshman, and the country of the Kymry is called by themselves Kymree ; in its Latinized form it reads Cambria. The correct pronunciation of Wales in its ancient tongue is Khumree or

Cumree.

Eawlinson says, " The identity of the Cyinry Wales with the Cimbri of the Eomans is worthy of all acceptation as an historical fact, upon the grounds stated by Neibuhr and Arnold." He also affirms,

"that the people known to their neighbors as Cimmerii, Gimirii, or probably Gomerim, attained to considerable power in Western Asia and Eastern Europe,

within the period indicated by the date B.C. 800 to 600, or even earlier, is a fact which can scarcely be said to admit of a doubt." Rev. Dr. Margoliouth, an English clergyman of Hebrew descent, considers that there are traces of Hebrew settlers in Cornwall as early as the times of David and Solomon, i.e., in the eleventh century B.C. do know, beyond any doubt that, by the Phoanicians, as early as those days, there was a large trade carried on with the inhabitants of the south-west corner of Britain, called the Cassisterides, or tin islands of Herodotus, as the only place known to the ancients where tin was to be procured, the name being derived from a Greek word signifying tin. A tomb was discovered a few years ago, at Marseilles, with a Hebrew inscription, bearing marks of the highest antiquity, and therefore much injured and defaced by time, while the " words, subject of Solomon," in Hebrew, could still be read without difficulty. Dr. Margoliouth's theory is founded on finding certain sentences in the archaic Cornish language, which are also found in the Psalms of David, and the Proverbs of Solomon. A distinguished Cornish scholar says, "It is difficult to find a single passage, or form of construction in the Hebrew grammar, but that the same is to be found in the Welsh, and that whole sentences in both languages are often found, they being exactly the same. I give only two or three of the produced by the learned author. Psalm xxiv. many " Who is the 10, King of Glory ? The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of Glory." The Cornish reads, " Who I that am is He that is the possessor of attainments ? Him of Hosts, He is the possessor of attainments." Prov. vii. 8, "He went the way to her house." The Cornish sentence reads almost as the Hebrew, "Dyrae buth hi ai-i seugyd." In Cornwall we have a town with a distinct Hebrew name Mara-zion, which means the market of people from Zion.

The Welsh language contains a large infusion of Hebrew words and idioms, as may be seen by any one who will examine Dames' Mythology of British Druids,
Their bards sang their or any of those early records. odes in Hebrew, their poets wrote in Hebrew, all their learned men spake it. Their ancestors having been descendants direct from Palestine, and having brought with them their mother-tongue into Ireland and Wales, their native language holds finally to-day a large proportion of Hebrew. A certain learned divine in London, a man of letters, a lecturer, a philologist, and an ardent searcher after truth, says, " In early life philology had engaged his most earnest study.

In Mr. Eoberts' Sketch of the Cymry, or Ancient Britons, from 700 B.C. to A.D. 500, he says, the colony of the Cymry which first took possession of this island came originally from Asia. In a poem of

While the natives were preparhis for he execution, ing sighed heavily and exclaimed in his native Welsh, " God, I have escaped so many dangers on land and ocean, and must I now be killed like a dog."

He was treated with great kindness, and was brought to Dynryn-pant-teg, a Welsh

Cimmeri, and of the Danish Cymbri, and of the Welsh Khumri.'' One has almost to pause and take breath after an ascent of nearly 3,000 years into the past, and yet there is abundant proof that the Welsh people are descendants of a portion of the ten tribes." Dr. Hincks translated an inscription in the cuniform character, in which Jehu, son of Omri, paid In that inscription Beth-Omri is named Bethtribute. il " Beth " means and house; and Kymri" Kymri.

Herodotus also says, Thracians, and a people called the Cimmerians submitted themselves to Darius." There is ample testimony that the Khumri of Assyria and of Samaria were for many years residents in those countries around the Black Sea. The graveyards of the country around the Crimea, and the monuments found in the country of Moesia, or Moses, afford volumes of evidence the most convincing.

that occasion a prince of the tribe of Dan was united in marriage with a royal princess of David's house, in order that the wandering tribes might be gathered to their long-promised throne and sceptre. The "many days " of Hosea iii. 4, were fast drawing to a close, the throne of David was soon to be hurled from Mount Zion, and Jerusalem to be laid in the dust. It was necessary that Dan and his ship-builders, and his merchants, should go to found a new nation and a new kingdom, which was to be the great agency in the hand of God of blessing all nations.

THE CENSUS. I want you to note specially the fact that, when the census was taken as recorded in 1 Chronicles, and all Israel were said to be numbered, there is not one word said of the army, or navy, of the families of Dan. Not Nor is there any mention made of Dan in one word the record in the Revelations vii., where the thousands of Israel were sealed.
!

Yet, when Ezekiel speaks of the tribes after their return to their own land, the tribe of Dan has a most honorable position among his brethren. I am aware of the special pleading of a host of expositors, who

The simple fact is, that, when that census was taken, Dan was not then in the country; he had gone to "the " isles of the West to try his fortune in Arsareth, and to prepare the way for others, who were soon to follow. " In JereEldad, an eminent Jewish writer, says, boam's day, 975 B.C., Dan refused to shed his brother's blood and, rather than go to war with Judah, he left the country and went in a body to Greece, to Javan

The learned Grotius also speaks of Dan's disappearance from the land of Canaan at an early age, because he would not fight his brethren.

In a work called the Annals of Ireland, it is said, " The Danans were a highly civilized people, well skilled in architecture and other arts from their long residence in Greece, and their intercourse with the Their first appearance in Ireland was Phoenicians. 1200 B.C., or eighty-five years after the great victory of Deborah."

We may safely inquire, what He has said in reference to that sceptre, and has the word and promise of the Lord been fulfilled in reference to it. " This word was wholly sceptre Lange says, unknown, strange, and unusual. We can trace it to no antecedents." This may be so, I do not pretend to say.

" The Sceptre (Gen. xlix. 10), sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come." Under that porosis, or blindness which Paul says, has happened to Israel, our commentators have failed to get the true key to this glorious prophecy made to Judah. With almost common consent, the old expositors taught that this was a guarantee that "the Jews would retain the sceptre until the There are some persons who still birth of Christ." cling to that obsolete interpretation, and re-hash it to us as if it were true, when, in fact, it is entirely foreign to the true meaning of God to His servant.

Jews retain the sceptre until Christ came, or did they not ? History gives us a most emphatic negative. They did not.

our eye on the sceptre, if you please, humbly and earnestly search out the mean-

ing of the inspired Word. What did the Holy Spirit intend to convey in that, " the utterance, sceptre shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh comes?" The word Shiloh is found twenty-seven times in the BOOK, and in every case where it is mentioned,, it refers to a place, and not once to a person. Shiloh was a city near the centre of the land,, west of Jordan. It was for a long time the capital of the nation. There at Shiloh the tabernacle rested, and the whole congregation assembled there. In Shiloh the Lord Himself was their King. From Shiloh they went out as from a grand central point to receive their territories. To Shiloh they came up to their great

annual feasts. Shiloh was their grand central point, so long as they were contented to have God as their king. Shiloh was called "resting place," where the ark
rested, or halted.

" At Shiloh the whole congregation met to set up " the tabernacle xviii. (Josh, 1). " " The Lord spake at Shiloh (Josh. xxi. 2). " "At Shiloh they cast lots (Josh, xviii. 8-10). " " The surveyors came back to Shiloh (Josh, xviii.

" Kitto gives the meaning of the word " Shiloh to " be quievit, to rest, to be at peace." Dr. Fairburn says the word " Shiloh" is an adjective, meaning peaceful, if so, the passage would read, "the sceptre shall not depart from Judah until the peaceful time shall come," that age, or time, "when war shall be no more." Many of our modern scholars " until rest comes," till peace comes. -give it, (See Dr. Fairburn's Imperial Die.} He says "For about a hundred years, a very considerable number of learned men have understood that it is not a person, but the place Shiloh which is meant." Eev. W. Saumarez Smith, B.D., Principal of St. Aidan College, says, " Until there come peace, or rest." " Until Judah come home," that is, until Lange, the restoration of the Jews to their own land. " Until he comes to Shiloh." J. B. Rotherham, " Hoffman says, Until he (Judah) comes to rest in the land promised." " Shiloh means rest." Knobel says, " Until the rest comes, and to it shall the obedience of the people be."

Rabbi Lipmaun, in his book, Nizzaclion, says that the word Shiloh means here a city, and should be so rendered as to read, " Until Judah shall come to Shiloh." A 'similar form of word and construction occurs in 1 Samuel iv. 12, " He came to Shiloh." ABEN EZRA " The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until they come to Shiloh," until the Jews shall come.

OBJECTIONS ANSWERED.
Before passing away from the historical and the geographical, I must here answer a few objections which I have met with in my travels. I will quote the objector's own words, withholding the name.
OBJECTION. " There is one Rev. Mr. says, difficulty about the Scythians, i.e., the fact of their name appearing frequently upon ancient Assyrian tablets and cylinders, ages before Israel was carried captive." This objection vanishes at once, when you see several colonies of those very same people migrating to that country " ages" before the captivity my friend alludes to. Is. In Genesis xxxviii. 30, we read that so ? Yes, it is a brother of Pharez, son of Judah, who one of Zarah, became a Scythe, a wanderer, he and his whole family

sons (1 Chronicles ii. 6). Moreover, this them took with members of all the tribes, and family went away north-east, and founded a Scythian nation. It was not long until a colony of Simeon followed them away into the fertile valleys of the east, where they found " fat pasture and good, and wide, and quiet, and peaceable" (1 Chron. iv. 39, 40). The sons of Reuben also went away to the Euphrates and joined the former Scythes, and grew up a strong nation in a few years (1 Chronicles v.) " And eastward he inhabited unto the 9. entering in of the wilderof

Also the sons of Reuben and of Gad, with 44,000 of an army, gave a good account of themselves, their arms and influence, in the work of extension. The same

This objection has disappeared, for it is quite as likely that those portions of that race would make their name and influence felt, and inscribe it on tablets

and cylinders, as any people who might follow them hundreds of years after.
THE ABORIGINES.
insuperable objection a reverend Professor has " That the against our Anglo-Israel theory is, early inhabitants of those islands would be so mixed up with Israel as to invalidate the whole theory because they must be in existence somewhere." He says, " There is a great difficulty about mixing so many nationalities together, and still claiming for their descendants a distinct nationality, and the identity of the same people." My reply must be brief. As to the admixture of races, we do well to note what was forbidden in their matrimonial relations and what was allowed. For very good reasons the Ammonite and the Moabite were utterly forbidden the offspring of an alliance with them was not to be naturalized even in the tenth generation. The Edomite, on the other hand, could be admitted in the third generation, because he was the descendant of Jacob's brother (Deuteronomy xxiii.). Also the offspring of an Egyptian alliance could be admitted in the third generation. must not forget that Joseph married an Egyptian wife their two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, the objector would call half-breeds, and would be troubled, no doubt, about calling them Israelites, but we find they were recognized at once as belonging to the

honored twelve, and were so included and so recorded, and specially blessed. We must also remember that in the genealogy of our Lord, Rahab, a Canaanitish Gentile woman of Jericho, was required, and Ruth, a Moabitish heathen, was permitted. If so, and so it is, this objection cannot amount to much. I cannot here enlarge, nor is it
necessary. I wish our Professor had informed us who those " " were, and upon what ground he early inhabitants " must be in existence somewhere." argues, they have some curious preachers in the world. One noted divine took for his theme, " Fear not, little flock," etc. After an introduction of several minutes, he said he would first show that the flock was not little; and secondly, show that there were grounds why we should fear. In both propositions he ran directly contrary to his text.

This Here is God's way of doing this thing. solemn declaration and promise must not be frittered away, or squarely contradicted. The law above quoted admitted Egyptians, Edomites, and proselytes to the faith and privileges of the Hebrews, and we know that the twelve sons of Jacob had among them four mothers, and if we see, in our day, a few Germans, Norwegians, andEdomites coming into our churches, or to our nation, and becoming " mixed up," we must not be alarmed as if the whole Saxon race was to be sacrificed. The mixing up process that alarms my friend began very early in our hisThe stronger has always absorbed the weaker, tory. and grown all the stronger by the process. The same law is seen in the vegetable and in the animal kingdoms.

As to the " early inhabitants," or aboriginal tribes of England and America I am not quite sure "that they must be in existence somewhere." The Word of the Lord is my guide, and He says, " I will make an " utter end of all the nations where I send thee that means England and Australia as well as America" an utter end of all nations." Are all the North American

This Anglo-Israel theory gives us the true key to the disappearance of the aborigines in all lands where the Saxon race is planted. I have no time here to notice the different theories advanced to account for the speedy disappearance of the Gentile tribes on the appearance of the dominant race. may well ask where are all those athletes of the forests of the New England States and the Atlantic coast the Pennicooks, Abenakes, Bawtu-kets, Massachusetts, Pokanokets, Narragansetts, the Mohicauni, the thirty tribes of the Pow-hatans, the Yamancoes, Shawanese, Cherokees, the Manohoacks.

The true answer to the question, Where are all those immense tribes of stalwart men and women ? is found in the declaration of God to Jeremiah xlvi. 28, " For I will make a full end of the nations where I send thee, but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in a measure." This is literally true of all nations where we go. Such is not the case of other nations as of the French and of the Spaniards, etc. (See Quarterfage on The Human Species, Vol. XXVI.

presume the speaker here means Saxon for Englishmen. The American nation is in this respect as omnivorous as England. We have now. over forty different nationalities in this country, and the process of amalgamation and assimilation is going on rapidly. In 500 years from now, all traces of those different races and different languages will have disappeared, to be found only by the historian or the archaeologist. We will then have two or three hundred million of inhabitants, all Saxons, speaking the same language, and doing honor to our forefathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. If, to-day, it can be truthfully affirmed, that not a bill of lading is made out in any pert, a copy of which is not made out in English, who can tell what the influence of our language, our commerce, and our civilization will be 500 years from now.

Another objection is stated thus " The tribal distinctions were entirely lost in Babylon and Assyria, and there was no distinction between Judah and Israel. The ten tribes returned home with the Jews after the decree by Cyrus." I am suprised that any one in this day of Bible reading would make such a statement! Turn to Ezra ii. and read of a court of inquiry appointed to examine certain claims to the priesthood, after the return to Jerusalem, and note how that court rejected all those persons whose families were unable to trace their family and tribal distinctions of some it was said, verse 59, "But they could not show their

How could they go every man to his own city if they had no family record of where to go ? Even to this day the Jews have their tribal distinctions. What says the objector ? The Israelites were not to mingle among the Jews, nor were they to amalgamate among the Gentiles, so as to be in the "latter

A reverend and dear brother waxed warm one day, and stated, " That the ten tribes returned from Babylon with the two tribes, and were mixed up with the captive Jews, and that they are with the Jews still." This is the most extraordinary statement of any on such a grave question. Turn to Ezra i. and rea.d of Judah and Benjamin, and also in subsequent 'chapters of a coirespondence with Artaxerxes and King Darius, and of the children of the transportation, and of the people carried captive by Nebuchadnezzar, and of a public meeting they held to consider their return to and of the proclamation issued comJerusalem manding their return, and yet there is not a word

They had left their country 133 years before their brethren, the Jews, and they had no sympathy with each other. (See Josephus, Jerome, Kitto, Millman, and others previously quoted on this point.) Another learned professor says, " As Ezra uses the words, all Israel,' therefore the whole twelve tribes were included, and all went back with Ezra." It is too bad to have to send another learned gentleman to the rear but they should know what they are saying. " all I affirm that the words, Israel," do not mean in all cases the twelve tribes. For example, observe " all Israel " came 1 Kings xii. 20, we are told that " and made Jeroboam king over all Israel." Was Judah and Benjamin there ? They were not. The twelve tribes did no such thing.

Another gentleman makes quite a flourish over Ezra vi. 17, where it is said, " And for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel."

"proves that the whole nation were and must have returned after the decree by Cyrus." This is certainly no proof that they were all present. When in the days of Ahab, " Elijah, on Mount Carmel, took twelve the number of the twelve stones, according to tribes of the sons of Jacob." Does this prove that the twelve tribes served Ahab ? I shall not multiply references. Such objectors show an ostrich-like unconsciousness ^f the nakedness of their situation.

SPIRITUAL ISRAEL.
I hear another objection from a dear friend of mine,

who grows warm and "

noisy about what he calls and he says that, " We, in claim-

ing a literal fulfilment of certain promises made to Abraham and his seed, do dishonor to 'spiritual I have, however, never been able to perIsrael.'' suade him to point out a single passage in the Word He might of God, where his favorite term is used. as well fret and fume about spiritual Jacob, or spiritual Esau, or spiritual Joseph. The fact is, the term has no place in the Scriptures. It is a piece of foreign read of "children of Abraham," "bemetal. lievers in Christ," "sons of God," the "faithful," "children of God," "righteous," of "children of the light," "citizens of God," of the "family of God," but spiritual Israel we don't find in the book. That term sounds very much like one that a wealthy gentleman often uses. He says he belongs to the "invisible church." It is a very cheap church, certainly there is no house of worship to build, or keep in order, no minister to support, no parsonage to furnish, and no poor members who have a claim on him. All his doings for God and community are invisible no one ever saw him do the handsome thing. He never lets his left hand know what his right hand does; because neither hand ever does anything. He belongs, he says, to an invisible church. Israelite is a generic term used to express the cove-
