Excerpt from Education at the West, in Its Claims on the Church: A Discourse, Delivered Before the Society for Promoting Collegiate and Theological Education at the West, in the Central Church, New Haven, October 26, 1848 This was the language by which the children Of Issachar were distinguished among the tribes gathered at Hebron to make David king over all Israel. They did not send a large representation to this great con vention, yet they were unanimous and inﬂuential in this movement. They had led a quiet life in their tents, and had not mingled much in public affairs, yet they had been careful Observers Of the politics Of the nation, of the temper Of the people and of the tenden cies of the times, and therefore were prepared to exert an important inﬂuence at this interesting juncture. They may have been distinguished in other things, especially in their attention to religious Observances for it was said of them, that they should call the peo ple to the mountain, and there offer sacrifices of right eousness; but the distinction here noted is, that they had understanding of the times, to know What Israel ought to do. They so appreciated the circumstances of the people and the indications of Providence, as to discern clearly what was their present duty.
