Excerpt from Sermons and Essays by the Tennents and Their Contemporaries
Moses introduces his song in this chapter with the most solemn and commanding magnificence, and yet with the softest charms of language. He summons the attention of the Inanimate creation, partly to reprove the stupidity of Israel, and partly to bear witness to the truth of what he was about to deliver to them in the following song, either for their instruction or warning, as well as to wit ness to the justice and equity of the divine proceedings against that unhappy nation: Give ear, 0 heavens, and I will Speak, and hear, 0 earth, the words of my mouth.
