Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men









(10) O my threshing, and the corn of my floor.--Literally, and child of my threshing-floor. . . The words are abrupt, and we have to read the thoughts that lie below them. The "child of the threshing-floor "is none other than Israel, thought of as the corn which is under God's chastisements, Assyrian and Chaldaean invasions, Babylonian exile, and the like, severing the wheat from the chaff (Micah 4:12-13; Jeremiah 51:33; Matthew 3:3). The prophet looks on those chastisements with yearning pity, but he cannot "go beyond the word of the Lord" (Numbers 24:13), and this is all that he has to tell his people. The oppressor shall in the end be overthrown, but that which lies between the present and that far-off future is, as yet, concealed from him.

Verse 10. - O my threshing, and the corn of my floor. These are the words of the prophet to Israel. Her chastisements have long been "threshing" Israel, separating the grain from the chaff, and will do so still more as time goes on. The prophet's message is for the comfort of those who shall have gone through the process and become the true "children of the threshing-floor" - pure wheat, fit to be gathered into the garner of God (Matthew 3:12).
