Proceedings of the New York State Conference of Religion, Vol. 1 : November, 1900 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Proceedings of the New York State Conference of Religion, Vol. 1: November, 1900 A marked contrast to this is the ideal set forth in Jer. Xxx., mi, a work of the early Persian period. Here self-government as a people and a peacefully gained prosperity attract the exiles home and produce a natural growth that, as evidence of Yahwe's love, creates an inner disposition to obey his law. But even where there was no dream of conquest, and peace ful expansion would have been preferred, the patriotic ideal of independent statehood was a potent force. For this men would willingly face the Assyrian hosts and the Roman legions, for this they would endure the horrors of the siege, the hardships of the battle, the dangers of exile or extinction. This ideal rendered the weak strong, particularly when the struggle for liberty was against a people of alien speech, alien customs, and alien religion.
