(i) Geograph. l. 16. p. 525. 18:11-28 The boundaries of each portion were distinctly drawn, and the inheritance of each tribe settled.

Is the lot of any servant of Christ cast in affliction and sorrow? It is the Lord; let him do what seemeth him good. Are we in prosperity and peace? It is from above. Be humbled when you compare the gift with your own unworthiness. Forget not Him that gave the good, and always be ready to resign it at his command.
