which, like the season that suggested it, would be utterly unmean- 
ing, did not Judaism number among its essential constituents the 
belief in God's infinite love, which is freely extended to the contrite 
sinner : — "Year after year this season returns, with its call to repent- 
ance, eloquent of a love, a pity, a sympathetic recognition of humau 
needs that is Divine. ' Return, ye erring children,' it cries, in the 
name of the Most High ; ' I will heal your waywardness. Let not 
your self-reproaches keep you back. My love is all-powerful ; it will 
receive you, it will comfort you. If you suffer bscause of the thought 
of your disobedience, you shall suffer no more.' Wise, indeed, are 
they who heed the sublime message, who, touched by its very mer- 
cifulness, hasten to lay the homage of their contrition before the 
Throne of Grace ; who read, and judge, and reform their lives under 
the tranquil influences of these days ; who discern their God in the 
still small voice of His loving appeal, and wait not till He is revealed 
by the mighty tempest of His rebuke." And the sermon ends with a 
prayer, breathing precisely the same spirit.

also of opinion that the Arabic fragment (ff. 705 to 707) is by J*an 
(Hats) ben Yatsliah ; it is certainly not by Samuel ben Hofui.
