SWEET FIELDS OF CANAAN

(B., Rev. Chas. C Smith)
A really remarkable passage of
Scripture is that of Josh. 21 :43Ui:
"The Lord gave unto Israel all the
land which h sware to give unto
their fathers; and they possessed it
and dwelt therein. And the Lord,
gave them rest round about accord
ing to all that he sware unto their
fathers: then' stood not a man of all
their enemies into their hand. The re
failed not ought of any good thing
which the Lord had spoken unto the i r
house of Israel; all came to pass.
