“I know that my Redeemer liveth.”~ Job 19:25 ~ The marrow of Job’s comfort lies in that little word “My”—”My Redeemer,” and in the fact that the Redeemer lives. Oh! to get hold of a living Christ.

“Behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.”~ Matthew 27:51 ~ No mean miracle was wrought in the rending of so strong and thick a veil; but it was not intended merely as a display of power many lessons were herein taught us.

“She bound the scarlet line in the window.”~ Joshua 2:21 ~ Rahab depended for her preservation upon the promise of the spies, whom she looked upon as the representatives of the God of Israel.

“We are come to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”~ Hebrews 12:24 ~ Reader, have you come to the blood of sprinkling?

“The precious blood of Christ.”~ 1 Peter 1:19 ~ Standing at the foot of the cross, we see hands, and feet, and side, all distilling crimson streams of precious blood.

“A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me.”~ Song of Solomon 1:13 ~ Myrrh may well be chosen as the type of Jesus on account of its preciousness, its perfume, its pleasantness, its healing, preserving, disinfecting qualities, and its connection with sacrifice.

“My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.”~Psalm 22:14 ~ Our blessed Lord experienced a terrible sinking and melting of soul. “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?” Deep depression of spirit is the most grievous of all trials; all besides is as nothing.

“Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp.” ~ Hebrews 13:13 ~ Jesus, bearing His cross, went forth to suffer without the gate.

“He answered him to never a word.”~ Matthew 27:14 ~ He had never been slow of speech when He could bless the sons of men, but He would not say a single word for Himself. “Never man spake like this Man,” and never man was silent like Him.

“He was numbered with the transgressors.”~ Isaiah 53:12 ~ Why did Jesus suffer Himself to be enrolled amongst sinners? This wonderful condescension was justified by many powerful reasons.

“Betrayest thou the Son of Man with a kiss?”~ Luke 22:48 ~ The kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Let me be on my guard when the world puts on a loving face, for it will, if possible, betray me as it did my Master, with a kiss.

He was heard in that he feared.”~ Hebrews 5:7 ~ Did this fear arise from the infernal suggestion that He was utterly forsaken.

“My beloved.”~ Song of Solomon 2:8 ~ This was a golden name which the ancient Church in her most joyous moments was wont to give to the Anointed of the Lord.
