Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent begins this sermon, on the subject of meditation, by citing several Bible verses: Genesis 24:63, Psalms 19:14, Haggai 1:5, Ecclesiastes 7:14, and Psalms 39:3-4. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1748 or 1749, then delivered it again in 1750 or 1751, 1755, and 1761.
