HENRY'S

SCRIPTURE HISTORY.

CHAPTER I.

a

The history contained in the Bible is of the utmost value to man. The Bible is the Book of Books, as its name Bi32.os implies. It was written by men who were divinely inspired or instructed by Jehovah. It is the youth's safest guide, and the best companion for old and young. It contains all that is required to instruct us in the way of holiness, and to obtain admission into heaven at last.

By the Holy Scriptures God speaks to us, in words of the utmost plainness and simplicity. If a father dies, his children regard the words contained in his last will and testament as sacred.

The Bible is God's Testament. By it he ever speaks to us. Let us reverence the Holy Book; obey its precepts; believe its promises; fear its threatenings; take heed to its warnings, and hope for its promised rewards.

The Bible is the oldest book in the world. Its early histories have been written more than three thousand years, and have been almost miraculously preserved through many ages.
