Who hath hears to ear, let him hear.
HEARKEN AND UNDERSTAND.
St. MARK vii. 14. And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, hearken unto me every one of you, and understand.
ALTHOUGH our blessed Saviour spoke these words for the immediate purpose of calling his hearer's attention to a particular subject, yet they may no doubt be properly understood and employed, as a general exhortation to all to whom the gospel is at any time preached—“Hearken unto me every
and understand." You may imagine how earnestly every minister, who has the spiritual improvement of his congregation at heart, must desire that every individual among them were disposed so to do.
