Stier evolves from the mysterious words of the passion which commend themselves to our judgment and our sympathy : in some cases, we think he has departed from that sim- plicity of exegesis which cannot be deserted without mingling an inferior subjective element with the divine account of these awful phe- nomena.

We think it highly probable that, with that enlightened view to the requirements of the future, which must be conceded to men thus divinely commissioned, the apostles and their disciples would recommend a general form of outward government appli- cable to all times and circuihstances ; and when we reflect that an analogous structure of secular government has been productive of an amount of power and prosperity hitherto unexampled in the history of the world, we feel all the more strongly inclined to do homage to the wisdom and foresight of our inspired teachers ; and should be disposed to depart from their ordinances — as far as we can comprehend or apply them — with a far more sensible reluctance than that we should feel in chimgmg or abandoning the most salutary po Uticid scheme.
