Lev. ix. ult, and x. 1, 2.-And there came a fire out before the Lord-upon the

altar ;-which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces. And Nahab and Abihu--offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not: and there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they

died before the Lord. Cant. ii. 12, 13.-The flowers appear on the earth, the time of the singing of birds

is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. The fig-tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Ver. 15. Take us the foxes, the little foxes which spoil the vines : for our vines

bave tender grapes.
