YOU who are familiar with your Bibles will recognize the foregoing solemn passage as one of the portions of the Old Testament Scripture from which the Apostle Paul quotes when arguing in his crushing indictment of the entire human family in Romans 3. Verses 15 to 17 of that chapter are taken from Isaiah 59, thus emphasizing for us a fact I wish to stress at this time: We have here the moral condition not only of Israel in the days of the evangelical prophet, but the condition of man generally at all times and in all places, and we may expect to see it accentuated as we draw near the close of the present dispensation of grace. Our Lord has taught us that the corruption and violence of the days of Noah and the abomination and mocking of Sodom and Gomorrah will be reproduced in the very part of the world that has had the greatest privileges, immediately before the return of the Son of man. Well may we therefore give our serious attention to Isaiah’s trenchant words.
