One of the most instructive instances of disobedience lo inhuman nnd imriuhleous law, is In he lomul in the case ol (be I'coplu VS. H ml, in beh.ill of Jonathan. The popu lar adjudication of ibis ease, simply by muled moral power, nnd tho peneelul iehny of equity over unrighteous law, aro recorded in the J ltli chapter ol the 1st hook of Samuel. The monarch had eoniiuaiided (bat tlirouuh- out the day ol battle, no loud should be eaten till the c oning. Jonathan heard tail when bis liilhor charged the oeonle w ith Ibis nail,: mid when they encountered n quantity ol honey in their march, be init linth hj. i'.,,. mill eat of il ; and when the people, iulurmed him of thu curse, thou said Jonathan. Mi fulhtr Li Hi tiouk'tJ Ike land. Nevertheless, thus tar, though Hie ex.ieliou was severe and injmioiis, llio people uls-ycil, each ono pa tiently enduring lur himself llio personal in convenience. Jlut when il came to nn immnratltj requir ed ol tliein, or to their consent demanded to nn net of injustice und cruelly again.-.! an in noceiil person, they nnhcdly and resolutely refused obedience. When mi inquest was held as lo the proceedings of the day, then Ihe King swore n great oath, thai in whoso ever Ihe sin bad been liiuud that day, though it were in Jonathan biuiseli, be tdiuuhl sure ly die. Kut there was nut n man among nil the people who answered him. They onlv said, in calm determination, (j'o on with thy trial ns seeineth good unto thee. So when the truth was know n, Saul imsweied, CIod dn so. nnrf more n'so,J'ur thou skull sure'; tlir, Jowilh-m. Kill now was the people's lino ; ami willi ns united mid resolute a personal ilisobc.iitnce, when this inhumanity was required ol llieiii. ns ihe patient obedience which they hail ex ercised w hen the thing required of them was simply their own iilisiiueucu Irom loud, they Heel ircil, one linn till, mat tins should not ho. As they had id, stained Irom loud ill obeying thu King's coiuiiiiitiiliiieul, so now Ibey would atisl.iiu Ii nm sin iiuninsi (.joD.niul Jj. ob'j it. It was . i plain case of buy iig.insl molality, nml morality egiin.-t law. 'And the H'cple said unto 'S ml, Sb.dl Jonathan die. who has wrought this great salvution in Israel' (Jodlbibnl! As llio Lord livelli, Ibcre shall not one hair of bis head fall to tho ground; lor he bulb wrought with Cod his day. So the prop'.e rescued Jonathan, (hut he Hied not.' Now ibis is noi n mere common roso nf disobedience to u civil statute, but it was flat, downright, peaceable mutiny. Jt was n martial law as well as civil, under which limy were held nl Saul's supreme command, both ns King nnd (Jenernl ; but, if in any particular, S.iul commanded what was im ptst beliiiu Und, their duly was lo disobey it. Every one nl them, without exception, pro ving liiithl'ul lo Chid, Saul could do notlmi! nt id! with llieiii. Ho could not find a sinclo individual to execute bis unjust command : mill this being the case, seeing so enlui, uni versal, hiui resolutu ii disoliedienee, lie dared not attempt lo execute it himscit; The peo ple needed nothing in sueli a case, liir victo ry of thu right, but simple, disoh.-dieucu to tho wrong. No violence was requisite, nor nny appeal to ii. Their united will was e- liougli to maku the execution ol'lhe mandate ol'lhe tyrant impossible. It wasn peaceful, triumphant viclory, oi equity over unrighteous Law, by simple disobidienc'e, by simply refu- Mug lo obey man when bu required that which wns contrary lo (jod. Now if this spirit everywhere prevailed, if it wero well known that men would not oiry unjust law, mid that men's consciences could not be bought or corrupted, to In: instruments in executing it, such n thing ns unjust law would soon cease out of existence. The most tyrannical government would bo shorn of its power; for even Nero could not have imprisoned or beheaded the whole people of Home, supposing Ihey till, to n man, ihsolicy. ed mi unrighteous edict. Simple disohe diencp, liir conscience-sake, when it becomes general, palsies Ihe iirin ol' unrighteous pow er. Il is the iiiosi perlcct security nl liberty, it is belter than millions of soldiers, stronger tUuti ten thousand navies.
