PORTRAITS FROM THE BIBLE.
Old Testament Series.
REV. ASHTON OXENDEN,
RECTOR OF PLUCKLEY, KENT.
WERTHEIM, MACINTOSH, AND HUNT
It is hoped that this Volume may be used by Heads of Families, who wish to give some short simple instruction to their Servants and Children; and also by Cottagers, as a book to read on Sunday Evenings.
The Author has aimed at nothing new. Neither has he sought for difficulties, with the view of removing them. But his desire has been to bring before the reader some of those Portraits, which are sketched in the Sacred Volume for us to gaze upon. And he trusts that he may have succeeded in drawing attention to the prominent features in these characters.
May God, who has seen fit to teach His people by example, as well as by precept, enable us to profit by the living Pictures which He holds up to us in His word, leading us “ to refuse the evil, and choose the good."
