tian Sabbaths considered ;-dnd the question how far the Sabbath may be the subject of enactment by human

Isa. Lvii. 13, 14.-" If thou turn away thy foot from the Sab-

bath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the
Sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and
shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine
own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: then shalt thou
delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride
upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the
heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath
spoken it.”
