"THE greatest sufferers in this world are not always the greatest sinners. We have clear proofs of this in the case of Job, and in the two cases mentioned in the preceding verses. "Suppose ye," says Christ, "that those Galileans, whose blood Pilate mingled with their sacrifices, or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." From these words we shall consider what is implied in repentance, and then prove the certainty of perishing except we repent."
