        * :12
    Thus ends the book of Deuteronomy, and with it the Pentateuch,
    commonly called the Law of Moses; a work every way worthy of God
    its author, and only less than the New Testament, the Law and
    Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Its antiquity
    places it at the head of all the writings in the world; and the
    various subjects it embraces render it of the utmost importance
    to every part of the civilized world.  Its philosophy, history,
    geography, and chronology entitle it to the respect of the whole
    human race; while its system of theology and religion
    demonstrably proves it to be a revelation from God.  The Law of
    Moses is more properly the Law of Jehovah, [t"rÉh <08451>
    yeh"vÉh <03068>,] torath yehowah, the grand title of the
    Pentateuch.  Could we conceive Moses to have been the author of
    this system, we must consider him more than mortal:--no wisdom
    of man has ever yet invented such a Code of Laws.  His merit,
    however, has been disputed, and his laws severely criticised, by
    persons whose interest it was to prove religion a cheat, because
    they had none themselves.  To some, whose mental taste and
    feeling are strangely perverted, everything in heathenism wears
    not only the most fascinating aspect, but appears to lay claim
    to and possess every excellence; and hence they have called up
    Confucius, Menu, Zoraster, and Mohammed himself, to dispute the
    palm with Moses!  On this subject in general, it may be just
    necessary to add, that the utmost that can be said of all laws,
    merely human, is, that they restrain vices, through the terror
    of punishment.  God's law not only restrains vice, but it
    infuses virtue.  It alone brings man to the footstool of his
    Maker; and keeps him dependent on the strong for strength, on
    the wise for wisdom, and on the merciful for grace.  It abounds
    with promises of support, and salvation for the present life,
    which no false system dared ever to propose:  every where,
    Moses, in the most confident manner, pledges his God for the
    fulfilment of all the exceeding great and precious promises,
    with which his laws are so plentifully interspersed; and while
    they were obedient they could say, "Not one word hath failed us,
    of all the good things which the Lord our God spake concerning
    us."  Who that dispassionately reads the Pentateuch, that
    considers it in itself and in its reference to that glorious
    Gospel which it was intended to introduce, can for a moment deny
    it the palm of infinite superiority over all the systems ever
    framed or imagined by man?  Well might the Israelitish people
    triumphantly exclaim, "There is none like the God of Jeshurun!"
    and with what striking propriety does the glorious legislator
    add, "Happy art thou, O Israel! who is like unto thee?  O
    people, saved of the Lord!" Finally, the treasures of wisdom and
    knowledge, which are amassed in these five books, have enriched
    the whole civilized earth, and, indeed, greatly promoted that
    very civilization.  They have been a kind of text-book to almost
    every writer on geology, geography, chronology, astronomy,
    natural history, ethics, jurisprudence, political economy,
    theology, poetry, and criticism, from the time of Moses to the
    present day--books to which the choicest writers and
    philosophers in Pagan antiquity, have been deeply indebted; and
    which were the text-books to all the prophets--books from which
    the flimsy writers against Divine Revelation have derived their
    natural religion, and all their moral excellence--books written
    in all the energy, and purity, of the incomparable language in
    which they are composed; and lastly, books, which for importance
    of matter, variety of information, dignity of sentiment,
    accuracy of facts, impartiality, simplicity, and sublimity of
    narration, tending to improve and ennoble the intellect and
    ameliorate the physical and moral condition of man, have never
    been equalled, and can only be paralleled by the Gospel of the
    Son of God!  Fountain of endless mercy, justice, truth, and
    beneficence!  How much are thy gifts and bounties neglected by
    those who do not read this law; and by those who having read it,
    are not morally improved by it, and made wise unto salvation!
