'In the year that King Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.'--ISAIAH vi. 1. Uzziah had reigned for fifty-two years, during the greater part of which he and his people had been brilliantly prosperous. Victorious in war, he was also successful in the arts of peaceful industry.

For what is nearer [God] than the Cherubim

But Jeremiah is sent, yet humbly pleads that he should not be sent, saying, Ah,
