And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities…
1. All at work: "The people gathered themselves together."
2. All working in unison: "As one man." A massed force is a winning force.
3. All working obediently: "As it is written in the law." Christian activity not a sentiment but a duty. "To the law and the testimony."
4. All working unceasingly: "As the duty of every day required. The daily performance of Christian duty leaves no arrears.
(Willis S. Hinman.)
