THE DESIGN OF AFFLICTION.

Therefore behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and

make a wall that she shall not find her paths : and she shall

follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them ;

and she shall seek them, but shall not find them : then shall

she say, I will go and return to my first husband ; for then

Was it better with me than now.--Hosea ii. 6,7. Page 54

: DISCOURSE IX.

THE CURE OF BLIND BARTIMEUS.

And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jeri-

cho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging : and

licaring the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant; and

they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by, and he

cried, saying, Jesus thou son of David have mercy on me ;

and they which went before rebuked him that he should

Biold his peace : but he cried so much the more, thou son

of David have mercy on me. And Jesus stood and com-

mandled him to be brought unto him, and when he was

come near, he asked him, saying, what wilt thou that I shall

do unto thee? and he said, Lord, that I may receive my

sight ; and Jesus said unto him, receive thy sight : thy faith

bath saved thee : and immediately he received his sight,

and followed him, glorifying God.-Luke xviii, 25 to 43.

MARTHA AND MARY. | Now it came to pass, as they went that he entered into a

certain village : and a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her house ; and she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word : but Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone ? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered, and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things : but one thing is needful ; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.-Luke x. 38 to 42.
