SERMON II.

EBENEZER : A MEMORIAL OF THE DELIVERANCE OF ESSEX COUNTY,

. AND COMMITTEE.

A prayer of Habbakkuk the prophet opon Sigicnoth. O Lord, I have heard

thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the

years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.

God came from Teman, and the holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His

glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. And his

brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of bis hand, and there

was the biding of his power. Before him went the pestilence, and burning

coals went forth at his feet. He stood and measured the earth: he beheld

and drove asunder the nations, and the everlasting mountains were scattered,

the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting. I saw the tents of

Cushan in afdiction: and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.

Was the Lord displeased against the rivers ? was thine anger against the

rivers? was thy wrath against the sea, that thou didst ride upon thine horses,

and thy chariots of salvation? Thy bow was made quite naked, according to

the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah. Thou didst cleave the earth

with rivers.--HAB. iii. 1-9.....

to deliver thee, saith the Lord.—JER. xv. 19, 20. ...................... 157
