    When, anxious for his friends, and fill'd with cares, To search the woods th' impatient chief prepares. A lion's hide around his loins he wore, The well poiz'd javelin to the field he bore, Inur'd to blood; the far-destroying dart; And, the best weapon, an undaunted heart. O virgin Hearts! “Let us not sleep, as do others.” When the cry was heard–“Behold, the Bridegroom comes,” they were all slumbering, wise and foolish alike. O you wise virgins who have oil in your vessels and lamps, “sleep not, as do others,” lest the midnight cry come upon you unaware. The Lord Jesus may come in the night.

Verse 1, I think is proleptic; that is, it is anticipatory of the sense of the whole parable: the kingdom of heaven is likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet a bridegroom, or the king, and the journeying forth that is referred to in verse 1 is not finally referred to until ve And while they went to buy, the.

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. The suddenness of the alarm made them all start to their feet, and begin to examine and trim their lamps.

They could not go to meet the bridegroom without carrying a light; that was an essential part of their. —The Book of the Revelation is a Book of Pro∣phecy, that sets down things that happen orderly one after ano∣ther.

When Rome is fallen, then Christ appears for the Con∣version of the Jews: They put on the fine Linnen clean and white; for the fine Linnen is the Righteousness of Saints; i.e. Page 15 the Righteousness of Christ put on by. The five wise virgins were asleep when the approach of the bridegroom was announced, and yet they were ready to meet him.

Their safety resulted not from their fluttering activity at that moment in the trimming of the lamps, but from their wise foresight on the preceding day. From the nature of the case there must be two successive processions, one in which the bridegroom with his friends goes for the bride to her father’s house, and another in which bride and bridegroom, together with the friends of both families, march to the future home of the married pair.

"While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

"Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. "And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

In this state of uncertainty, without definite time, the Advent people as a body sunk into a dormant state, fitly represented by slumbering and sleeping.

The ‘virgins’ have been asleep or slumbering; yes, all of us. Asleep on the time; that is the point. Some have indeed preached the seventh month, but it was with doubt whether it is this year or some other; and that doubt is now removed from my mind.

‘Behold the bridegroom cometh,’ this. A NOTE ON THE LATE ROMESH C. DUTT. Romesh Chunder Dutt, to whom English readers are indebted for the condensed metrical versions of the ancient Indian epics given in this volume, was one of the most distinguished sons of modern India.

Behold, the Bridegroom cometh. With ten thousand hosts of light, With his beams of radiant glory, Wide breaking on the night.— Behold, the Bridegroom cometh. Let the earth quake at the cry, And sinners to a Saviour, As doves to the windows, fly.

HST Septempage Behold, the Bridegroom cometh. Go, hoary age and youth. Some think it regards a secret general impulse, that will be upon the spirits of the people of God, with respect to the bridegroom's coming, but this does not seem to answer to a cry; rather it should intend some remarkable providence, as the earthquake in Revelation when a tenth part of the city shall fall, seven thousand men of note be.

The work possesses one peculiar excellence; it is short, perspicuous and comprehensive. There are few persons who may not find means to obtain, and time to read the book.

Those who feel interested in the spread of the doctrine cannot do better than to circulate this little work among their friends. HST Augpage O virgin hearts. "Let us not sleep, as do others."

"Behold the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him," was the cry that awakened the virgins when they all slumbered and slept: may it have the like arousing power at this moment.

We know not when Christ will come, nor is it for us to utter prophecies about it: the times and seasons are hidden from us. In the parable of the Ten Virgins we see a happy company of the young, waiting for a happy festival of life, full of love and joy.

The Bridegroom is coming, and they are the friends of the Bride. The picture, drawn of life, is bright and triumphant, full of excitement and hope and eager longing; and aft this happiness is to come soon.

The brightness of that moment when the lamp was first lit is dimmed. "While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept." But the reality of supreme delight in Christ, and desire after Him, had not departed. The vessels were still at the side of the slumbering virgins.

The oil had not to be bought, but only to be used afresh. Oh virgin hearts. “Let us not sleep as others do.” When the cry was heard — “Behold, the bridegroom comes,” they were all slumbering, wise and foolish alike, oh you wise virgins who have oil in your vessels with your lamps, “do not sleep as others do,” lest the midnight cry come upon you unawares.

The Lord Jesus may come in the night. The guests were soon at table; and as ladies sat, while men reclined on couches during the repast, Fabiola and Agnes were together on one side, the two younger guests last described were opposite, and the master, with his two elder friends, in the middle—if these terms can be used to describe their position about three parts of a round table.

OUR Saviour was very gentle with those who had real difficulties. He would argue with them over and over again; he would state a truth, and re-state it; he would cast it into the form of a parable, or he would condense it into a sentence comparable to a proverb, or he would enlarge and expand it, for he was gentle with seeking souls as a nurse is with her child.

She wore white silk, very full in the skirt, with a bunch of lilies of the valley in the folds of the bodice, which was cut low, showing. I was convinced she was dead. But the rotten collar, of which the burly brute's coat was made, gave with a shrill sounding tear, and a cloud of stinking dust rushed forth from it almost like the explosion of a musket.

Without attempting to attack me in return, and with a stifled cry of alarm, the fiend made for the window. A plea to obedience of the Gospel.
