1 Samuel 20:18
Then Jonathan said to David, To morrow is the new moon: and you shall be missed, because your seat will be empty.
1. I point out to you the father's vacant chair.
2. I go a little farther on in your house, and I find the mother's vacant chair.
3. I go on a little further, and I come to the invalid's chair.
4. I pass on, and I find one more vacant chair. It is a high chair. It is the child's chair. If that chair be occupied, I think it is the most potent chair in all the household.
(T. De Witt Talmage.)
