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 sympathy with the afflicted, by citing Proverbs 16:19, "Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud." From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1750, then delivered it again in 1752 and 1757.
