Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) was greatly honored and esteemed in his day, and became a most popular and admired preacher. He was chosen by the congregations of Stepney and Cripplegate, London, at that time accounted two of the largest congregations in England, as well as participated as one of the divines of the Westminster Assembly.

This work is a twofold treatise. It first concerns “Jacob’s Seed” as an exposition of Isa. 65:19, “I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek me in vain.’” Burroughs shows how prayer is not in vain if it is done by God’s people with a right end, though we might not see or gain what we want from prayer immediately. The second treatise is called “David’s Delight” and is an exposition from Psalm 16:3, “But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent in whom is all my delight.” Burroughs teaches that the people of God should be the delight of the Christian since Christ is in her midst. Two powerful works by a master teacher and preacher.
