In His days Judah shall be sared, and Israel shall dwell safely; and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."-JEREMIAH xxiii. 5, 6.

Now He is fore- prince of peace—a man of sorrows. The told as a king, with widespread authority; Saviour and friend of man-forsaken and and now as one of the lowliest of the friendless among men. The Holy One earth. We hear of regal preparation and the Just; tortured and condemned heing made for His coming; in the filling at an earthly tribunal, and bruised and up of valleys, the levelling of hills, and put to grief by divine justice !—who, making of highways through the pathless among the wise men of the earth, could desert : but we hear also of His being led have imagined the reconciliation of those as a lamb to the slaughter, and of meek | apparent contradictions, before Messiah
