30他们必为你放声痛哭,把尘土撒在自己的头上,在灰中打滚。
30And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
30 Verse 30. Shall cry bitterly] All that were on the land, seeing

this dreadful sight, a gallant ship perishing with all her men and

goods, are represented as setting up a dismal cry at this

heart-rending sight. But what must they have felt who were on

board? Reader, wert thou ever shipwrecked? Wert thou ever in a

hurricane on a lee rocky shore, where the helm had lost its

power, and the sails were rendered useless? Dost thou remember

that apparently last moment, when the ship drove up to the

tremendous rocks, riding on the back of a mountainous surge? Then

what was the universal cry? Hast thou ever heard any thing so

terrific? so appalling? so death and judgment-like? No. It is

impossible. These are the circumstances, this is the cry, that the

prophet describes; disorder, confusion, dismay, and ruin. And this

is a scene which the present writer has witnessed, himself a part

of the wretched, when all hope of life was taken away, the yawning

gulf opened, and nothing presented itself to support body or soul

but that GOD who gave to both their being, and ultimately rescued

him and his forlorn companions from one of the worst of deaths, by

heaving the ship from the rocks by the agency of a tremendous

receding wave. My soul hath these things still in remembrance, and

therefore is humbled within me.
