HINTS. It is highly desirable, that all, who have the REFERENCE BIBLE should become familiar with the KEY SHEET and TABLES subjoined. For this purpose, each reference letter should direct the eye to the corresponding letter with its questions in the Key sheel, till all those questions suggest themselves as soon as the levier is seen. Every proper pame, about the pronunciation of which there can be any hesitancy, should be examined in the Table till the correct pronunciation of it becomes fa miliar. All words found in the Etymological, Geographical, and Miscellaneous Tables, should be traced from the text to those Tables, and when found on the maps, to those likewise. When reference is made to prophecy, either as recorded or as accomplished, the Reference and Chronological Tables are to be consulted. Should it be sometimes thought, that either the Printer or the Editor, had inserted a urong letter in the margin, if the person using it is induced by the existence of that letter, to candidly and prayerfully inquire and ascertain what the Holy Ghost does teach there, ihe great end of the marking will have been answered. Should heads of families extensively supply the members with each a Reference Bible, and after the services on ihe Lord's day, read in turn two or three chapters, asking the younger members questions about the facts, and miracles recorded; and older members questions about the doctrines, precepts, traits of character, &c. which come into the portion read, interspersing the whole with familiar explanations and practical remarks, we believe incalculable good would result. Clergymen and others most acquainted with the word of God, may derive important advantages from perusing the Scriptures in the order suggested by the Harmonies. This order might be profitably used for the instruction of Bible classes.
