The Bible U one of the plainest of book?. Not
without its heautieft of ill j-tration and of lan
uag, where beauties ara tuoat fitting, there is
in ic no studied grace, certainly no monotony of
elegance, n j tedious cimeneda of style: now we
Lavti a wild wail of lamentation and woe, as it
were the spontaneous outburst of nrifcf pent up
which could no longer be restrained : now we
have a sturdy forco of Id ngnage, resistless and
iznpc-tuoas as .& mountain torrent: now a lofty
grandeur, in which language labors to give ex
pression to the sublimity of thought : now a
pem of beautv unsurpassed, and now a hoinelv
feimile. which none can fail to comprehend. A
divine revelation, sot far scholars alone, but for
men of plain common sen.?, it abounds in pas
aa uil the more striking and forcible because
they oome homo to the hearts and lives of the
common people. Not only were simplicity of
style and plainness of illustration characteristic
ofthe Savior's teaching, those sturdy outspoken
prophet of the old diapenxitiou were too bcne&t
and too earnest to sacrifice force and distinctness
to mere elegance. Tbey were too intent upon
delivering soma weighty me&uge from Cxi to
etian to inquire in every instance how will this
ntrik.0 the fancy or pleasa the ear of the more
fastidious of ibuaa to whom God bids me epeak ?
With their soals all on fire with zeal for find's
glory, how did those hoary prophets of antiquity
thunder forth their mesKa' of woe or of warn
in ! With what homely earnestness did they
utter their exhortations to repentance and their
predictions' of coming wrath !- Such in its un
polished eloquence and its eimple force of illus
tration is the passage before us, a remarkable
prophetic utterance as instructive in its teaching:
as it ia impressive in its style. Tis the voice of
the Lord which he spake by his servants the pro
phets,' ' J trill wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a
dish, wiping it, and turning it upside doicn."
It ia my purpose, first, to epeak of the occasion
and the import of the prophecy ; secondly, to toll
how it was fulfilled, and, thirdly, to show what it
teaches ; deriving from it lessons of warning and
Instruction to nations, to cturches, and to indi
The occasion for this dreadful denunciation of
coming wrath was the wicked reign of Manasseh,
the recreant son of a pious father, who during
his long reign of fifty-five years led the Jewish na
tion into every form of sin, even to the practice of
the most abominable idolatry. Not only did he
set an example of gross wickedness, he legalized
iniquity and patronized the worst forms of vice.
Not content with permitting ethers to enact their
abominable rites, he was himself so impious as
to establish the worship of false god in the
very sanctuary of the Most High.
This is the dark record against him : He did
that which was evil in the sight of the Lord,
after the abominations of the heathen whom the
Lord cast out before the children of Israel. For
he built up again the high places which llezekiah
his father had destroyed, and he reared up altars
for Baal, and made a grove as did Ahab king of
Israel, and worshiped all the hotta of heaven and
served them. " And "he built altars for all the
hosts of Leaven in the two courts of the house of
the Lord. And he made his eon pass through
the fire, so devoting him. to Moloch, who by the
seal of circumcision had first been dedicated to
the true God. He observed heathen festivals,
and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar
spirits and wizards. Instead of consulting the
oracles of God he betook himself to the oracles
of the Devil. So did Manasseh seduce the chosen
people of God to do more evil than did the na
tions whom the Lord destroyed before them. No
wonder that Jehovah spake by his servants the
prophets saying, Because Manasseh hath done
these abominations, and made Judah to sin with
his iJoIs, therefore behold I am bringing such
evil upon Jerusalem and Judah that whosoever
heareth of it both bis ears shall tingle. And I
wil stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria
and the plummet of the house of Ahab : and I
will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wip
ing it, and turning it upside down."
Dreadful indeed were to bo the judgments
which none could hear of without their very ears
tingling and their -hearts trembling. As Jeru
salem had copied after tho sins of Samaria, so
when God should lay righteousness to the line it
should be the lina of Samaria, measuring out to
that favored city the same lot of captivity and
desolation which had already been meted out to
Samaria. As they had followed after one who
Ahab. so when God Bhould lay judgment to
the plummet, it bhould be the plummet of the
bouse ot Anab, marking them out tor the same
ruin to which that family were devoted." The
principle of the divine government here announc
ed is, that the punishment which sooner or later
he visits upon transgressors has a fitness both in
kind and degree to the nature and extent of the
transgression. Those who copy after the sins of
Samaria must expect to share her doom. Those
who perpetrate the abominations of Ahab must
be prepared for his punishment. And since the
defection of Jerusalem had been so complete, not
. Ieta complete should be its destruction. Since
the reign of tho righteous father of Manasseh
had been bo entirely reversed, the overturning cf
his kingdom should be not less marked. The
extent to which corruption prevailed was the
rueaeure of the cleansing needed. So, not for its
destruction, but for its renovation, would GoJ
wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping
it, and turning it upside down.
Having thus dwelt upon the occasion and im
port of tho prophecy, I need take but little time
to tell you how it was fulfilled. You who are
familiar with the general outline of Jewish his
tory, know that not lng after the delivery of
these mejwics of malediction the populous east
poured forth it- desolating armies over Judea and
carried awy king and people cajtives to Uaby
lon. There, in a tedious exile of seventy years,
serving a heathen people, they learned enough of
idolatry to detest it. Adversity weaned them
from"-what in prosperity they had practiced, and
natietv caused them at length to loathe what be
fore they had longed for.
So was the nation turned upt-ido down and
thoroughly cleansed and renovated by the desola
ting judgments which God visited upon them
duriog seventy years of servitude in a foreign
land. The fruitful fields became a barren wilder
ness. The country was well nigh depopulated,
and even the sacred city and temple were laid
waste. God's purposes were very gracious, but
the processes by which his peculiar people were
purified were terribly severe. Though merey
contemplated the end, inexorable justice chose
Having shown the occasion and import of the !
prophecy as also the manner of its fulfillment, I
hasten to ahow what it teaches. How solemn ,
nd impressive its lessons of warning and instruc- j
uon to every guilty nation ! How like a trum
pet blast of holy indignation does it sound in the
ears of corrupt rulers, who would lead back their
people to a lower moral grade, and jierchance
connive at, if they do not foster, the abomina
tions of a practical heathenism. The God of
providence and grace whom we adore, he is the
governor among the nations. And though he
may awhile forbear to punish prevailing iniquity,
yet when official license to impiety Lj given by
thote who eit in the high places of power, when
those who should be examples of piety acd vir
tue become the patrons of a nation's infamy,
the just judgments of God are sure sooner or
later to be visited upon that people. And if
such a nation be not blotted out, they may be
politically turned ur?ddwn. to the end that
they may be morally renovated. Seemingly con
fused and irregular as is the administration of
divine justice in this life, we have even here terri
ble hints of what is meant by retribution.
Human hietory abundantly confirms and illus
trates what conscience and reason would lead us
tj anticipate, that a righteous God could not
leave it to be fairly inferred that he is indifferent
to the character of the nations over whom ho
hold domiuion. Human history is a fearful
commentary upon that awful utterance of retri-
into hell, and ail the nations that forget God.' j
Of how many once proud empires bavo the j
light and glory pone out in perpetual desolation
because of the wickedness alike of sovereigns and of
subjects ! How many of the magnificent cities which
me a have bail Jed have gone down beneath the dark
wives of oblivion, accursed of God. because they be
cause such sinks of corruption ! So sank those five
guilty cities, what time the fierce lightoiags of Jeho
vah's wrath kindled the pitchy plains of Sodom. So
sack Tbehes an J Memphis wholly given over to idola
try : and so " Babylon the Great bas fallen, is a by
word among the nations, au-1 the massive palaces of
Egypt's and Assyria's kings have crumbled back to
dust. How marked the judgments of God upon that
very city which had been the instrument of Jerusa
lem's overthrow and the scene cf Jndsh's captivity.
The cup of Babylon's iniquity was full when, in a
drunkeu revel, her prince profaned the vessels of the
Lord's house by impiously using them in a heathen
feast. That vtrjr night the army of Cyrus surprised
and slew thc-se guilty princes : and long ago God
wiped out that sink of corruption as a roan wipeth a
didh, wiping it and turning it apsiie dowu. Surely,
U Lord, tbou art known by the judgments which
thou executed Thou bait rebuked the heathen,
thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast nut out
their name forever and ever." Thou hast destroy
ed cities: their memorial is perished with them. No
candid historian can relate the causes of the decline i
and fall cf etc pi res without taking into the account j
the raaniiett judgments cf God against outbreaking
iniquity. The prosperity aad jerpetuity of nations
depend not alone upon their commercial relations or t
their political alliances, but chiefly upon the charac
ter of the rulers and the people. Moral causes affect
our temporal not less thau cur eternal destiny ; and
the seeds cf corruption are always teed of decay.
We have not necessarily to go back to the time? of
the theocratic; government to show bow God drives
out the heathen before a higher civilization; how he
blesses and builds up the nations that honor him and
curses those who are profane and impious. Modern
history is full of the doctrine of divine retribution.
On every page we see the proofs that the kingdom is
the Lord's and he is the governor among the nations.
It is in evidence that when the provinces of British
India rose in revolt, those cities and sections in which
Christian missions Lad been most fostered and where
God-fearing rulers had hel l sway, were most reliable
in their loyalty, while it was in those portions of the
land where these influences had been least felt that
an outburst of brutal ferocity swept away the inno
cent with the guilty, itself in turn to be visited with
a fearful retribution. And who that believes in a
God of providence and justice, doubts that it is be
cause of the many and aggravated sins of yonder
highly favored Had, that now of a long time the
scourge of God has reMed upon it, making so many
households desolate and so many hearts sad.
And shall I hesitate to say that this people among
whom we dwell cannot hope to be exempt from the
working of retributive justice in the providence of
God, if they turn away from what they have been
taught, and from what their consciences approve, to
open uuew the floodgates of intemperance and vice,
and to reinstate the orgies and abominations of
heathenism. If ever wisdom, tbougbtfulnees and
energy in the rulers were requisite to save a people
from that decay and utter desolation which are the
legitimate fruits of ignorance, indolence and vice,
such wisdom, tboughtfulness and energy are needed
here and now. And who will diepute the Bentiment
that a solemn obligation rests upon foreign residents
of every creed and nationality to use every legitimate
influence to check the encroachments of vice and the
tendencies to heathenism which of late have been so
painfully apparent. When idols are set up in our
high places, and the most loathesome rites are publicly
practiced, and officially permitted, it is time that
somebody should be bold enough faithfully to rebuke
the sin. V hat is the church worth that sets not its
face like a flint against every form of error, and lifts
not up its standard against every incomiug flood of
iniquity ? What is the ministry worth which utters
not one wold of warning when thus the wrath of
God is defied? In every issue between light and
darkness, between Christian civilization and the ele
ments of barbarism, God save us from a muzzled
press and from a timid time-serving pulpit.
And this leads me to yet another application
which I proposed to make of the text. For, as I
have intimated, it bas its lesson of warning and
instruction for churches as well as for nations.
That tame Jtrusalem with reference to wbich the prophetic
malediction was originally uttered, was Zion beloved of the
Lord. Tbey were his own chosen people whom he threatened
with such severe discipline for their radical renovation. And
if ChrUt cares not less fur the church of Lis espousals he w.U
ever have regard for its purity, he will be solicitous to cleanse it
from all corruption, if ul be wiping it as a man wipeth a
dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. When any branch
of the church becomes s thoroughly tainted with worldlings
that it no longer eaerta any spiritual influence upon the world
aroaud it : when any organization assuming to 1 e a church so
corrupts the doctrines of Christ that it is no longer a true light
shining in the midst of the prevailing darkness, God will either
chasten anl cleauge It, or he will give it over tu utter desola
tion. It is a vessel flued for di straction; any other orgauiza
tion may" become corrupt with comparative impunity. But
Uod, who is jealous of bis honor, will not suffer his holy name
to continue uion the wlls of a corrupt church from which
Vitid godliness tus well nigh died out, without making an effort
to renovate that church, or in default of success in reclaiming
it from backsliding, he will consign it to such spiritual deso
lation that his own elect shall be in no danger of being deceives
by it or seduced Into it. Such a church was that at Laodicea
when Christ the faithful and true witness said, "So then,
because thou art lukewarm, ani neither cold njrhot I will
tpe-je thee out of my mouth." There is no honor in ieu
tratity ; vataftty in lukewarmnesf. In doctrine and life,
precept and example, the true spiritual church has always been
a witnessing church decided and unequivocal in its testimony
asainst sin. And when anything claiming to l the church of
Christ connives at popular vicrs aud baptises public corruption,
a righter-ns K1 will disown it. When in any issue bei weeu
virtue and vice, between truth and error, th:s or any other
chun.-h hU. for the sake of an ignominious ieace or from a
cowardly policy, prove itself neither cold nor hot, God will
either by his judgments bring it to shame and repentance or he
will spuru it from him, as it were spewing it out of his mouth.
But, my hearers, it may be of service for us to consider that
Ood visits his judgment not alne upon guilty nation and
time-serving lukewarm churche, but also upon individual
transgressors. A church cannot become cold and corrupt save
as its nemlers are worldly and wicked. There can be no
iiaiioiini i a ' u . jnl'iiH .w.f. - - ------ - -
organic mud which do not involve iudiridual restin?ibiiit V. '
Which one of us then, in the plenitude of his pride will say,
the kingdom is corrupt, but am not concerned ; the church
it cold, but I am not culpable . Io we so consistently practice
virtue an 1 so faithfully rebuke sin that a righteous judge can
endorse the approval of onr consciences, with the plaudit, well
done, good and faithful tervant lo we so closely follow
Christ through evil and through good report that we have no
f -sr lest at the lst a worse malediction than that of the text
should rest upon us, and we be pronounced vessels of wrath fitted
for destruction T Let us not mourn at any personal overt urn
ings, let us lament not any cleansing discipline which serves to
bring us ne.rer to him. It is beuer that these earthern vessels
should be emptied and purified, and turned upside dotcn
than that they should oe tided with worldly corruption. It is
hotter to be cieansed than to he cist away and broken in pieces,
to be a vessel unto honor sanctified, and meet for the Master's
use, ralher than a vessel nf trrath fitted to destruction."
Genuine heart religiou. practical personal piety, is the conserva
tive influence and the great renovating power which alooe can
save the nation from decay, Oe church from desolation and
each individual frm ruin.
