Exhortations to Praise God, &C.

SING unto Jehovah a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth; ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein ; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit : let the inhabitants of the rock sing : Let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto Jehovah, and declare his praise in the islands. a

They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of Jehovah, they shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify ye Jehovah in the fires, the name of Jehovah, God of Israel, in the isles of the sea. b And let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever. C thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth forever. d' O sing unto Jehovah a new song ; for he hath done marvellous things ; his right hand and his holy arm hath gotten him the victory. Jehovah hath made known his salvation; his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. e Give unto Jeho. vah, Oye kindreds of the people, gire unto Je. hovah glory and strength ; Give unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name : bring an offering, and come unto his courts. O worship Jehovah

in the beauty of holiness : fear before him, all the earth. f

O come, let us sing unto Jehovah : let us make a joyful noise unto the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For Jehovah is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth; the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow duwn : let us kneel before Jehovah our maker ; for he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. g For his mercy endureth forever. b Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people. ¿

Jehovah hath made bare his arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. j And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they wisely consider of his doing. k The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham ; for the shields of the people belong unto God; he is greatly exalted. 7 Kings of the earth, and all people ; princes, and all judges of the earth : both young men and maidens ; old men and children: Let them praise the name of Jehovah:

The Universal Kingdom of Christ on earth, in

the Millenium. AND it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of Jehovah's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills ; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah, to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem, And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people : and they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks : nation shall not lift

sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

And Jehovah shall be king over all the earth : in that day shall there be one Jehovah, and his name one. b With righteousness shall he judge the poor, and re.

prove with equity for the meek of the earth : and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid : and the calf, and the young lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed, their young ones shall lie down together : and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play upon the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice den. They shall not hurt nor destroy, in all my holy mountain : for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people ; to it shall the Gentiles seek, and his rest shall be glorious. C And he shall speak peace unto the heathen : and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth. d

I saw in the night visions, and behold one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations and languages, should serve him : his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his

kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. e The saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. f And the kingdom & dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High ; whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all do. minions shall serve and obey him. &

And the seventh angel sounded ; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Chirst, and he shall reign forever and ever. B In his days shall the righteous fourish : and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth, They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him : and his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents : the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Vea, all kings shall fall down before him

: all nations shall serve him. i And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba ; prayer alse shall be made for (or to) him continually, and daily shall he be praised. j His name shall be continued as long as the sun : men shall be blessed in him ; all nations shall call him blessed. k And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
