WITHHOLD NOT THINE HAND: Sunday Evening Sermons and Thursday Evening Lectures
WILLIAM JAY (1769-1853)

AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 150 YEARS, THIS VOLUME OF 630 PAGES CONTAINS SERMONS PREACHED AT TIMES OTHER THAN THE LORD'S DAY MORNING. THE NEW TITLE IS DRAWN FROM THE WORDS OF ECCLESIASTES 11:6, "IN THE MORNING SEW THY SEED, AND IN THE EVENING WITHHOLD NOT THINE HAND: FOR THOU KNOWEST NOT WHETHER SHALL PROSPER, EITHER THIS OR THAT, OR WHETHER THEY BOTH SHALL BE ALIKE GOOD..."

The opening words of the first sermon in this wonderful volume should whet the appetite of all who are spiritually-minded. The sermon is titled DELIVERED FROM THE PIT and the text is Psalm 40:1-3...

"We view religion under a threefold distinction. The first regards Doctrine, the second regards Practice, and the third regards Experience. Some parts of Scripture are more appropriate to one, and some to another.

When we think of matters of Experience we naturally turn to the Book of Psalms; for there David comes forward and lays open his various struggles and trials--the sources of his pleasure, and of his pain--of his fears and of his hopes, and we know his heart's bitterness and intermeddle with his joy.

It is a remark of good Matthew Henry, that sweetest of all commentators, that 'it is impossible to read the Book of Psalms without being either inflamed or ashamed by the perusal.' Let us not fear lest we should be ashamed by ourselves, for as Bishop Robert Hall observes, 'Our repenting days are always our best days'; and says the Savior, 'Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.' There is no prayer more becoming us than that of the publican, 'God be merciful to me a sinner!' 'He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with His goodness.'

To come nearer to our text, observe, whatever feeling the perusal of the Scriptures may immediately produce in us, we know the ultimate end and aim of the whole; for says the Apostle, 'Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.' And with this corresponds the passage we have now read, 'I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.'

Now let us fill up the remainder of the time allowed for this service by considering four things: David's Condition, his Engagement, his Success, and his Profit Under the Dispensation."

"O for more Jays! We would gladly give some two or three dozen of the general run of the doctors of divinity for one such a master in Israel as William Jay of Bath." --Charles H. Spurgeon



"William Jay had a long and fruitful career as a preacher of the gospel by voice and pen. Like Spurgeon and Whitefield, he was thirsty for souls, and had much fruit as an evangelistic preacher. Sheridan, the playwright, described Jay as the most natural orator he ever heard, and John Foster called him the prince of preachers." --J.I. Packer



"Every Christian reader of Jay's Works must be impressed with the pleasingly devotional turn of his mind. His reflections lead the pious and devout to the most elevated views of the Divine character, as a Father to be loved, and a friend to be trusted." --John Angell James
