Not illustrated. 1850 edition. Excerpt: ...by the Spirit of judgment and by the Spirit of burning. 2. It is a sifting. Lol I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve. We are God s corn, growing in his fields and gathered in by his hand. Yet we are coarse and rough grain. Many a sifting process must we pass through, in order to separate the coarser particles, that nothing but the finest may remain. Aflliction sifts us.
