PUBLISHERS' NOTICE.

In the advertisement prefixed to the series of volumes already published, under the title of the "GOOD CHILD'S LIBRARY," the publishers gave notice of their intention to issue another series, similar in character and design, to be devoted to subjects from the Old Testament, as the other had been to the New. In fulfilment of this notice they have issued the present series, embellished like the Good Child's Library, with an entire new set of Illustrations, executed in Oil Colors, in the best manner. The additional attraction given thereby will, they trust, obtain for it the same favor as has already been bestowed upon the former series.

The volumes composing the SCENES AND NARRATIVES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, are separate and distinct from each other, having no other connection than similarity of form and style. The following are the titles of the different works.

THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THE FLOOD, DISPERSION OF MANKIND, DEPARTURE OF THE ISRAELITES, HISTORY OF ABRAHAM, HISTORY OF ISAAC, HISTORY OF JACOB, HISTORY OF JOSEPH, HISTORY OF MOSES, HISTORY OF JOSHUA, HISTORY OF SAMUEL, HISTORY OF DAVID.

The above series in connection with the volumes of the "Good Child's Library," constitute a choice and attractive Scriptural Library for Children.

THE FLOOD.

I.

THE WICKEDNESS OF MAN.

Behold how kind and merciful Our heavenly Father was, To bear so long with sinful men, Who had transgressed His laws.

The hearts of men wax'd worse and worse, They disobeyed the Lord; They followed their own thoughts, nor walked According to His word.

And men were multiplied on earth, They spread both far and wide; And there were giants in those days, Who did God's law deride.

The Lord look'd down from Heaven to see If there were any good; Behold they all were turn'd aside, Sin tainted all their blood.

Yet still the Lord was good to them He gave them sun and rain, And every blessing, yet their hearts Were foolish, wicked, vain.

There is no sin so base as that We call ingratitude, To use those ill, with wicked hearts, Who seek to do us good.

And when the Great and Holy One With kindness stoop'd to bless The sorrows of a sinful world, And pity their distress;

'Twas vile ingratitude in them To act so wickedly, And spurn the mercy of the Lord, The great, the good, the high.

God's goodness leads us to repent, And give our folly o'er; And if we use His kindness right, We'll go and sin no more.

II.

GOD IS PROVOKED.

But God is just as well as good, He will not always strive; He will assert His sovereign right, Nor let the sinner live... Continue reading book >>
