to Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about, li. 2. Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. Luke iii. 17.

bThe Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, Matt. xiii. 41. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth, 49, 50. And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness, Mal. iii. 3. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. iv. 1. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit, John xv. 2.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn, Matt. xiii.

as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel, Isa. v. 24. The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind, xvii. 13. Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the early dew that passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney, Hos. xiii. 3.

The

e And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them, Isa. i. 31. sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? xxxiii. 14. And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh, lxvi. 24. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched, Jer. vii. 20. But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched, xvii. 27. And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every dThey are as stubble before the green tree in thee, and every dry tree : wind, and as chaff that the storm car- the flaming flame shall not be quenchrieth away, Job xxi. 18. The ungodly ed, and all faces from the south to the are not so: but are like the chaff which north shall be burned therein, And allthe wind driveth away, Ps. i. 4. Let flesh shall see that I the Lord have them be as chaff before the wind: and kindled it: it shall not be quenched, let the angel of the LORD chase them, Ezek. xx. 47, 48. Then shall he say also xxxv. 5. Therefore as the fire devoureth unto them on his left hand, Depart the stubble, and the flame consumeth from me, ye cursed, into everlasting the chaff, so their root shall be as rot-fire, prepared for the devil and his antenness, and their blossom shall go up gels. And these shall go away into

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear, 43. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth, Amos ix. 9.

And if thy hand offend thee, cut knowest not now; but thou shalt know it off: it is better for thee to enter in- hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou to life maimed, than having two hands shalt never wash my feet. Jesus anto go into hell, into the fire that swered him, If I wash thee not, thou never shall be quenched: Where their hast no part with me, John xiii. 6—8. worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched, Mark ix. 43-48. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 7. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever, Rev. xiv. 10, 11. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and

ever, xx. 10.

b And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace, John i. 16. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water, and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again, iii. 3-7. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me :-for without me ye can do nothing, John xv. 4, 5. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins, Acts v. 30, 31. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all), x.36. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist: and he is the head of the body, the Church; who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell, Col. i. 17-19. That ye may know-what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all prinminion, and every name that is named, cipality, and power, and might, and donot only in this world, but also in that which is to come; and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness

The LORD is well pleased for grow up into him in all things, which his righteousness sake; he will magis the head, even Christ, iv. 15. And nify the law, and make it honourable, because ye are sons, God hath sent Isa. xlii. 21. And they were both righforth the Spirit of his Son into your teous before God, walking in all the hearts, crying Abba, Father, Gal. iv. commandments and ordinances of the 6. After this I beheld, and, lo, a Lord blameless, Luke i. 6. Jesus saith great multitude, which no man could unto them, My meat is to do the will number, of all nations, and kindreds, of him that sent me, and to finish his and people, and tongues, stood before work, John iv. 34. And he that sent the throne, and before the Lamb, me is with me: the Father hath not clothed with white robes, and palms left me alone; for I do always those in their hands; And cried with a loud things that please him, viii. 29. For voice, saying, Salvation to our God I have given you an example, that ye which sitteth upon the throne, and unto should do as I have done to you, xiii. the Lamb. And all the angels stood 15. If ye keep my commandments, ye round about the throne, and about the shall abide in my love; even as I have elders and the four beasts, and fell be- kept my Father's commandments, and fore the throne on their faces, and wor- abide in his love, xv. 10. But made shipped God, saying, Amen: Bless- himself of no reputation, and took ing, and glory, and honour, and wis-upon him the form of a servant, and dom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God, for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white ined for us, leaving us an example, that the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Rev. vii. 9-17.

VER. 15.

̓Αποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπε πρὸς αὐτόν· Αφες ἄρτι· οὕτω γὰρ πρέπον ἐστὶν ἡμῖν πληρῶσαι πᾶσαν δικαιοσύνην. Τότε ἀφίησιν αὐτόν.

And Jesus answering, said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: a for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

a Then said I, Lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, my God:

was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross, Phil. ii. 7, 8. For such an high priest became us: who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens, Heb. vii. 26, For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffer

ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed, 1 Pet. ii. 21-24. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked, 1 John ii. 6.

And, a lo, a voice from heaven, saying, b This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

a And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape, John v. 37. Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, an angel spake to him. Jesus answered and

said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes, xii. 28-30. And I heard a voice from heaven, as

from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit | thee and the woman, and between

into the wilderness, Luke iv. 1.

b And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me but I thy servant fear the Lord from my youth, 1 Kings xviii. 12. And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send, 2 Kings ii. 16. Then the Spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place. So the Spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me, Ezek. iii. 12.14. And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the Spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy, viii. 3. MOREOVER the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east gate of the LORD's house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah son of Azar, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people, xi. 1. Afterwards the Spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me, 24. In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south, xl. 2. So the Spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and behold the glory of the LORD filled the house, xliii. 5. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing, Acts viii. 39.

And I will put enmity between

thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel, Gen. iii. 15. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me, John xiv. 30. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted, Heb. ii. 18. For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need, iv. 15, 16.

d The tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the devil, Matt. xiii. 38, 39. And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel, 1 Chron. xxi. 1. Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it, Job i. 6, 7. And these are they by the way-side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts, Mark iv. 15. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve, Luke xxii. 3. And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat, 31. And he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness, viii. 29. And supper being ended (the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him), John xiii. 2. And after the sop Satan entered into him, 27. deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, 1 Cor. v. 5. Defraud you not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency, vii. 5. Lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are
