Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1868 Excerpt: ...of evening brighter far than noon. It stuns even him who was the prophet of fire. The shafts from a convulsed and frowning firmament are leaping and gleaming in all directions.

These had roused his fears, but they had never reached his heart. He had looked on them amazed, but not in sympathy. He had been riveted to the spot, but only as a spectator of nature's unaccustomed wrath. But no sooner does he hear the whisper that indicates a special presence, than he wraps his face in his mantle, like Moses when 'he trembled and durst not behold,'1 and stands before, rather beneath, the cave to receive the message from heaven. We pause here to ascertain the meaning of this singular and solemn scene. We have already remarked upon its primary significance to Elijah. It is thought by some that it was intended by God as a rebuke to the prophet for his fear of Jezebel; as if He had said,' Why be afraid of Jezebel's power, when you witness this di...
