And was there ever need to lie in sackcloth, then when the Kingdome almost lies in ashes. Or to shed tears, then when the Nation hath shed so much blood? These days are called in Scripture, Soul-afflicting days, Lev. 23. 29. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And certainly, that may be one reason why there is so much State-affliction, because there is so little Soul-affliction. Our condition is low, but our hearts are high.
