6. How manifold are thy works, 0 Jehovah! In wisdom hast thou made them all. The earth is full of thy riches : so also this great and wide-spreading sea. There are moving creatures innumerable; living creatures, small and great. There go the ships ; there that leviathan, which thou hast made to sport therein. These all wait upon thee, and thou givest them their food in due
Thou givest it unto them, and they gather it; thou openest wide thy hand, and they are satisfied with good. Thou hidest thy face, they are terrified; thou takest back their life, they die, and to the dust do they return. Thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the earth.
7. The glory of Jehovah shall endure forever! Jehovah shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the hills, and they smoke. Long as I live will I sing to Jehovah; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. My meditations of him shall be sweet; and I will be joyful in Jehovah.
8. O praise God in his holiness; praise him in the firmanient of his power. Praise him in his noble acts; praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him in the sound of the trumpet; praise him upon the lute and harp. Praise him with cymbals and dances; praise him upon the strings and pipes. Praise him upon the well-tuned cymbals; praise him upon the loudsounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath, praise the Lord. PRAISE YE THE LORD.
TRANSLATED FROM THE HEBREW, BY CHEEVER.
THE CELESTIAL CITY.
1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth : for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no
And I, John, saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem,
I coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold! the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain : for the former things are passed away.
2. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold! I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, It is done! I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
3. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, esaying, Come hither, I will show thee the Bride, the Lamb's wife. And He carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the Holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. * * And the city was of pure gold, like unto clear glass. * *
4. And I saw no temple therein : for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day, (for there shall be nu night there); and they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. And there shall in nowise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
5. And He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month : and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him : and they shall see his face. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun ; for the Lord giveth them light: and they shall reign forever and ever.
NEW CLASS BOOKS,
BY PROFESSOR T. S. PINNEO.
Pinneo's Primary Grammar of the ENGLISH LANGUAGE. A
simple elementary work for common schools. rinneo's Analytical Graminar of the English LANGUAGE.
A complete work for schools and academies. Pinneo's English Teacher, in which is taught the structure
of sentences by Analysis and SYNTHESIS, with exercises in Eng. lish Grammar. A simple, thorough and practical work on the Analysis of English sentences.
PINNEO'S PRIMARY GRAMMAR.
The following are some of the points in which this work differs from all others :
I. EXERCISES. The Exercises in Pinneo's PRIMARY GRAMMAR are more numerous, more extensive, more simple, and more varied than in any other work of the kind. Their object is to teach Grammar by practice, to fis in the mind the nature and peculiar characteristics of the parts of speech, and the principles of construction by their proper use, rather than by a mere description; as a mechanic learns more by using tools himself, than he would by years of instruction without trying them. This is the true secret of teaching Grammar, and more may be learned in a few months, in this way, than by years of study on the old plan. The exercises are of the following kinds, viz:
1. EXERCISES composed of short sentences, in which the pupil is to point out a given part of speech, with or without its properties, accord ing to his state of progress.
2. EXERCISES of the second class contain blanks in which a given part of speech is to be supplied by the pupil.
3. EXERCISES of the third kind consist of single words to be included in sentences to be formed by the pupils. The difficulty of the exor. cises is very gradually increased as the pupil can bear.
A very important feature of this book is, that all the EXERCISES are preceded by a model, showing so minutely and clearly how the exercises are to be used, that any obscurity or difficulty may be considered impossible.
The extensive and frequent reviews form a peculiar feature of Pin. NEO's PRIMARY GRAMMAR. At the close of each subject there ars questions for general review, frequently including all that has gone before, and at the close there is a complete review of the whole subject. Thus, while the pupil progresses, he is not permitted to forget what he has learned.
ill. ONE THING AT A TIME. Another excellence of this book is, that it teaches but one thing ai a time, and it teaches that thoroughly before another is introduced.
A particular examination will show that this feature is carried out more thoroughly than in any other work of the kind.
IV. SIMPLICITY OF ARRANGEMENT AND TERMS. Great care has been taken to simplify the arrangement and terms. Thus, the article is included in the adjective, and the participle in the cerb, and the tenses are arranged clearly and distinctly under their appropriate heads of present, past, and future. English terms are preferred to Latin, and simple, plain words to technical. Thus, the words imperfect, perfect, and pluperfect are rejected, and the plain English terms, 1st past, 2d past, and 3d past substituted. The terms used are made to signify, as far as possible, that for which they are used. Care has been taken, however, to avoid any change which would creato confusion.
The inductive method has been adopted in this book, that is, names and things are taught first, and principles deduced from them, as children learn to talk by learning names and words first.
VI. PROGRESSION. It has been attempted to introduce in this work, the simplest and easiest gradation possible. No one principle, or description is given ; until all that properly precedes it is thoroughly explained and under stood. This easy gradation is very much aided, by the frequent moviews mentioned.
MODEL CLASS BOOKS.
VII. COMPOSITION. Many of the exercises in this work afford valuable instruction in the construction of sentences, which is the first step in composition. The pupil is taught by these exercises to put language together properly, as soon as he has learned the nature of a single part of speech.
The Primary Grammar, thus very briefly described, in a few of its prominent points, may be used as an introduction to Pinneo's Analytical Grammar, where the subject is continued, or if time and opportunity for study are limited, the Primary will, of itself, give a more thorough knowledge of Grammar, than is generally acquired by years of application in the ordinary way. To this, all who have tried this system, will bear abundant testimony. By its numerous thorough, and varied exercises, by its frequent and complete reviews, by its confining its instruction to one thing at a time, by its simplicity of arrangement and terms, by its inductive method, and easy progression, and we may add, by its beautiful typography, it presents facilities for the study of Grammar, which need only to be impartially examined to be duly appreciated.
PINNEO'S ANALYTICAL GRAMMAR. This work presents a complete view of the well established principles of the English language. The following are some points in which tho Analytical Grammar differs from similar works.
I. ITS ANALYTICAL CHARACTER PINNEO's ANALYTICAL GRAMMAR explains the principles of Grammar in their practical bearing on the analysis and CONSTRUCTION of senten. ces. The subject of analysis is introduced early in the volume, and exercises, explanations, and illustrations in it are continued to its closo. Thus Grammar and Analysis are taught together, aiding and adding interest to each other.
The EXERCISES in this work, though more difficult than those in th Primary Grammar, are formed on the same plan. They are muc. more numerous, more varied, more simple, and more systematic than in any other similar work. They embody for practice each principle as soon as it is explained, as one learns penmanship by forming the lettars himself, and not by learning the manner of their formation merely,
