THESE THINGs I w ILL THAT THou AFFIRM CONSTANTLY,
But Avoid Foolish QUESTIons, AND GENEALogies, AND
have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars:
and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith
the answer of God unto him I have reserved to myself
seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the
image of Baal.—Rom. xi. 2.-4.

WOWS CALLED TO REMEMBRANCE.
• And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell
there; and make there an altar unto God, that appeared
unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy
brother. Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all
that were with him, Put away the strange Gods that are
amongyou, and be clean, and change your garments : and let
us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an
altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my dis-
tress, and was with me in the way which I went.—GEN.
xxxv. 1, 2, 3.

And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought
Huails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it
were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's
journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it
were two cubits high upon the face of the earth. And the
people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the
next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered
least gathered ten homers; and they spread them all abroad
for themselves round about the camp. And while the flesh
was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath
of the Lord was kindled against the people 2 and the Lord
smote the people with a very great plague. And he called
the name of that place Kibroth-Hattaaavah : because there
they buried the people that lusted,—NuMBERs xi. 31–34.
