"ITíS JEWISH"

URIAH SMITH (CIRCA 1800íS)

WHEN WE PRESENT GODíS HOLY LAW AND ARGUMENTS FROM SCRIPTURE DRAW, OBJECTORS SAY, TO PICK A FLAW, ITíS JEWISH

THOUGH AT THE FIRST MOST HIGH BLESSED AND SANCTIFIED HIS DAY OF REST, THE SAME BELIEF IS STILL EXPRESSED, ITíS JEWISH

THOUGH WITH THE WORLD THIS REST BEGAN, AND THENCE THROUGH ALL SCRIPTURES RAN, AND YESHUA (JESUS) SAID ĎIT WAS MADE FOR MAN` ITíS JEWISH

THOUGH NOT WITH JEWISH RITES, WHICH PASSED, BUT WITH THE MORAL LAW IT WAS CLASSED, WHICH MUST EXIST WHILE TIME SHALL LAST,

ITíS JEWISH

IF FROM THE BIBLE WE PRESENT, THE SABBATHíS MEANING AND INTENT, THIS ANSWERS EVERY ARGUMENT ITíS JEWISH

THOUGH THE DISCIPLES, LUKE AND PAUL, CONTINUE STILL THIS REST TO CALL, THE "SABBATH DAY", THIS ANSWERS ALL: ITíS JEWISH

THE GOOD NEWS TEACHERíS PLAIN EXPRESSION, THAT "SIN IS OF THE LAWS TRANSGRESSION," SEEMS NOT TO MAKE THE LEAST IMPRESSION. ITíS JEWISH

THEY LOVE THE REST OF MANíS INVENTION, BUT IF THE LORDíS DAY (7TH DAY, SATURDAY) WE MENTION, THIS PUTS AN END TO ALL CONTENTION: ITíS JEWISH

O YE WHO THUS GODíS DAY ABUSE, SIMPLY BECAUSE IT WAS KEPT BY JEWS, THE SAVIOR (CHRIST JESUS), TOO, YOU MUST REFUSE. HEíS JEWISH

THE SCRIPTURES, THEN, WE MAY EXPECT FOR THE SAME REASON YOUíLL REJECT; FOR IF YOU WILL BUT RECOLLECT, THEY ARE JEWISH

THUS THE APOSTLES, TOO, MUST FALL; FOR ANDREW, PETER, JAMES, AND PAUL, THOMAS, MATTHEW, JOHN, AND ALL WERE JEWISH

SO TO YOUR HELPLESS STATE RESIGN YOURSELF IN WRETCHEDNESS TO PINE; SALVATION, SURELY YOUíLL DECLINE. ITíS JEWISH
