Thu text was: "If 1 wash myself wilb
snow water, and ulioul.l I cloatmo my
' humid in nllinll, yet sluilt thou plungo mo
In tho ditch, nnl minu own clothes shall
abhor mo." Jobix., 30, 31. Tho olouueut

earth and in heaven wont straight buck

translated it as 1 havo now quoted It, Kiv
Inir substantial reasons for so doing. Al-
though wo know bettor, tho ancients bad
nn i.lcii Unit in snow water thero was a
MH-riul power to cleanse, and that a par
ment washed and rinsed iu it would beiui
clean as clean could be; but if tho plain
now water failed to do its work, then
they would take lyo or alkali and mix it
with oil. and under that preparation tney
felt tluit tho last impurity would certainly
be gone. Job, in my text, in most force
ful Ikure sets forth tho idea thut all
his attempt to make himself pure before
tiod were a dead failure-, and thut unless
we nro nhluted by something better than
earthly liquid and chemical preparations
loathsome, nil J ill the JlU II. "If 1
wash mvaolf with snow water, and should
1 cleanse my bands in alkali, yet shall
thou ul mice tun in thu ditch, and luino
own clothes shall abhor mo."
