blood of war in peace," 1 Kings ii. 5. He had also committed another murder; the king had commanded that his son Absalom should not be put to death; but in defiance of this command of bis sovereign, he murdered the royal youth. And notwithstanding all these murders, David sought not to take his life.

Now I will refer the reader to the crime of Joab, which the Deist palliates by saying, it was "only drinking a glass of wine with the malcontents." But previously I should show the reader what was the real charge of David to Solomon respecting Joab, The translation is perfectly correct, viz.“ But let not his hoar-head go down to the grave in peace.” From this expression, the Deist supposes that David charged Solomon to murder Joab,

Solomon however had succeeded to the throne, and Joab joined in the cause of Adonijah in rebellion against Solomon, ver. 28, and when Joab heard that the king and the people had inade Solomon king, he knew that he had transgressed the law, which was death. David did not charge Solomon to njurder him, “to bring down bis hoar-head to the grave with blood;” but “pot to suffer him to go down to the grave in peace;" the meaning of which phrase is, that he was not to hold bin guiltless, but to keep a watch over his actions.

The second charge which the Deist brings against David is perjury and murder. In the common version of i Kings ii. 9. it is said; “But his hoar-head bring thou down to the grave with blood.” A very different charge from that respecting Joab : nevertheless we shall find that the charge given to Solomon by David respecting Shimea, was not to murder bim, but to save his life after David's decease. It is only the Deist who brings this charge against David, being guided by the error made in the translation. The translators bave omitted the translation of the negative: the clause when truly rendered, reads" Neither bring thou down his hoar-head with blood to the grave." It is therefore so · far from being true that David sought the death of Shimea, or

commanded Solomon to kill him, that on the contrary, mindful of bis oath, he laid his injunctions on Solomon also to keep it in memory; and the history proves the fact. Shimea was allowed to live within a certain district, and that on pain of death; nor was he put to death till he incurred this forfeiture by breaking his parole."

While we are writing, a second part is published, and appears to be as eagerly received by the public,
