ERECTED

By the Presbyterian Church

In Nashville to the Memory

Of their late beloved and lamented pastor the

Rev. Obadiah Jennings, D.D. who departed this

Life January 12, 1832  Aged 53 years

 

Dr. Jennings was born near

Baskingridge, New Jersey

Dec. 13th 1778

His original powers were

naturally strong and his

discernment unusually clear.

 

He was a ripe scholar, a profound

Theologian, a sincere Christian, a laborious

and faithful Minister.

In his social feelings and habits he was

most happily constituted and in his domestic

(life) no husband, father could be more devoted.

He held fast to the faith, once delivered to the saints.

Among all his attractive qualities his humility

and his accustomed spirit of devotedness in

prayer were the most preeminent

He was both in argument and in scriptural

exposition, remarkably lucid and instructive.

 

His memory is embalmed in the affections, not

only of many dear relatives, but likewise in the

affectionate remembrance of the flock to whom

he administered in great tenderness and fidelity

and, who by this monument would ever perpetuate

their high estimate of his worth, and of their

loss.

 

He rests from his labors and his

works do follow him.
