Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
a See on Matt. v. ver.12.
how oft cometh their destruction upon them? God distributeth sorrows in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away. God layeth up hisiniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it. His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall

And he spake a parable unto tain of Samaria, which are named chief them, saying, The ground of a cer- of the nations, to whom the house of tain rich man brought forth plentifully: Israel came!

And I will say to my the seat of violence to come near; soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch up for many years; take thine ease, themselves upon their couches, and eat, drink, and be merry. But God eat the lambs out of the flock, and said unto him, Thou fool! this night the calves out of the midst of the stall; thy soul shall be required of thee: then That chant to the sound of the viol, whose shall those things be, which and invent to themselves instruments thou hast provided?

Go to now, ye rich men, Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; weep and howl for your miseries that their cow calveth, and casteth not her shall come upon you. Your riches are calf. They send forth their little corrupted, and your garments are ones like a flock, and their children moth-eaten. Your gold and silver is dance.

They spend their days in eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have wealth, and in a moment go down to heaped treasure together for the last the grave. Therefore they say unto days, James v. 1-3. God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. How oft is
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell

from the rich man's table: moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom : the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom: And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy life-time receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented, Luke xvi. 19-25.
Οὐαὶ ὑμῖν, οἱ ἐμπεπλησμένοι· ὅτι πεινάσετε. Οὐαὶ ὑμῖν, οἱ γελῶντες νῦν· ὅτι πενθήσετε καὶ κλαύσετε.
a Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
a And they shall pass through it hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that, when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward. And they shall look unto the earth, and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to And he darkness, Isa. viii. 21, 22. shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied, ix. 20. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed, lxv. 13. b When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are; 'Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and

The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled; for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth, and fadeth away: the world languisheth, and fadeth away; the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore bath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth
are burned, and few men left. The new wine mourneth, the vine languish eth, all the merry-hearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise
of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink

a If a man, walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine, and of strong drink; he shall even be the If ye were of the world, the world prophet of this people, Mic. ii. 11. would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you, John xv. 19. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world, is the enemy of God, James iv. 4. They of the world, and the world heareth are of the world: therefore speak they them. We are of God: he that knoweth God, heareth us; he that is not of God, heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error, 1 John iv. 5, 6.

There is a crying for go against Ramoth-gilead to battle, wine in the streets; all joy is darkenor shall I forbear? And they said, Go ed, the mirth of the land is gone. In up; for the LORD shall deliver it inthe city is left desolation, and the gate to the hand of the king.

Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GoD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: and I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation: and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bit ter day, Amos viii. 7—10.
Οὐαὶ ὑμῖν ὅταν καλῶς ὑμᾶς εἴπωσι πάντες οἱ ἄνθρωποι· κατὰ ταῦτα γὰρ ἐποίουν τοῖς ψευδοπροφήταις οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν.
might enquire of him? And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There Imlah, by whom we may enquire of is yet one man, Micaiah the son of the LORD; but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so, 1 Kings xxii. 6-8. And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth : let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good, 13. Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things; speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits, Isa. xxx. 10. The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? Jer. v. 31. But there were false pro
Τῷ τύπτοντί σε ἐπὶ τὴν σιαγόνα, πάρεχε καὶ τὴν ἄλλην· καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵροντός σου τὸ ἱμάτιον, καὶ τὸν χιτῶνα μὴ και λύσης.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other ; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
[But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also, Matt. v. 39, 40.]

[Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the Law and the Prophets, Matt. vii. 12.] a See on Matt. vii. ver. 12.

a For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
[For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the Publicans the same? Matt. v. 46.]

Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
[Give to him that asketh thee, and from bim that would borrow of thee turn not thou away, Matt. v. 42.] a See on Matt. v. ver. 42.
a But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
[That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

a Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.
