I. A few thoughts illustrative of THE MEANING of the text.

2. In spite of all past disappointments, we confidently expect the fulfilment of this prophecy.
3. The subject ought to lead us individually seriously to examine whether we are contributing to the Saviour's satisfaction, either by what we are or by what we are doing.
(T. Binney D.D.)
