"And when He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it, saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, and shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation." Threk times we read that our Lord wept: once from sympathy, the tears stealing in silence down His cheeksa, when He stood by the grave of Lazarus, and caught the sorrowful influence by which He was surrounded, even while the words which were to summon the dead man back to life were trembling on His lips; once from personal suffering, when, in intense mental agony, "with strong crying and tears, He offered up prayers and supplications unto Him that was able to save Him from deathb,"--mysterious but unequivocal proof of the verity of His human nature, and of the depth of humiliation to which, for our sakes, He had submitted; and once, as we have just heard, from compassion, when the sight of Jerusalem, fresh bursting upon His view, called into His thoughts the past history and the future of that guilty city, and reminded Him that the last sands of the last hour of its day of grace were running out, and that the terrible but well-merited consequences of neglected privileges and slighted warnings were on their way to overtake it, and He gave vent to His deep emotion in sobs and broken lamentations". a John xi. 36: Ihaupwev 6 'lyo-ovf. b Heb. v. 7: Acrjareis Kcu iKerrjpias... fiera Kpavyris lirxvpas &#171...
