The extreme hardships also borne by many pious men at this period forced upon men's thoughts the relation of evil in God's providence to sin and to righteousness. Even the destruction of Israel as a nation, and its subjection to heathen conquerors, might have raised this question. No doubt, in many minds the deep consciousness of the sin of the nation was sufficient to allay and remove doubt.
