Title Gentile Account, page 129
Description phere here lent a sense of dreamy unreality to the landscape. Had the Elder pointed out the little group of people surround- ing the Emigrant wagon that was coming slowly along the Trail, as the party of Naomi descending from the Moab moun- tains that Ruth might glean among these fields, I should not have been very much surprised. During my whole stay in Utah, I have found the poetry of the Bible running in my mind. I have felt myself to be living in that old Syrian world amid a people whose ways are like those of the ancient pastoral folk to whom Isaiah spoke. They too have had come out of Egypt in confident search of a Promised Land: they too have had supplanted the wild inhabitants, and found themselves among traces of the ruined dwellings of older, forgotten races. When I have came come out of the sandy wastes upon the orchards or vineyards of a Mormon settlement with its rills of water led in from the cleft crevice of some stern volcanic mountain, I have seemed to myself to see a new fulfilment of the prophet's encouraging promise to the Hebrews (XLI. 17. 18. 19.) When the poor & needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue failest for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle and the oil tree: I will set in the desert the fir tree, the pine and the box tree together; that they may see and know that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. 129
