Dictionary

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Rest
Gr. katapausis, equivalent to the Hebrew word Noah ( Hebrews 4:1 ).
Gr. anapausis, "rest from weariness" (Matthew 11:28 ).
Gr. anesis, "relaxation" (2 Thessalonians 1:7 ).
Gr. sabbatismos, a Sabbath rest, a rest from all work (Hebrews 4:9 ; RSV, "sabbath"), a rest like that of God when he had finished the work of creation.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Rest
REST . The conception of rest as a gift of God runs through the Bible, the underlying idea being not idleness, but the freedom from anxiety which is the condition of effective work. It is promised to Israel in Canaan ( Exodus 33:14 , Deuteronomy 3:20 ), and Zion is the resting-place of J″ [1] ( Psalms 132:8 ; Psalms 132:14 ), the Temple being built by ‘a man of rest’ ( 1 Chronicles 22:9 ; a contrast is implied with the desert wanderings in Numbers 10:33-36 ). At the same time no earthly temple can be the real resting-place of J″ [1] ( Isaiah 66:1 , Acts 7:49 ). The rest of the Sabbath and the Sabbatical year are connected with the rest of God after creation ( Genesis 2:2 , Exodus 20:11 , Leviticus 25:4 ; see art. Sabbath). The individual desires rest, as did the nation ( Psalms 55:8 ); it is not to be found in ignoble ease ( Genesis 49:15 Issachar), but in the ways of God ( Psalms 37:7 , Jeremiah 6:10 ); it is the gift of Christ ( Matthew 11:28 ). Sinners fail to find it ( Isaiah 28:12 ; Isaiah 57:20 ), as Israel failed ( Psalms 95:11 ). Hebrews 4:1-16 develops the meaning of this failure, and points to the ‘sabbath rest’ still to come. This heavenly rest includes not only freedom from labour, as in OT ( Job 3:13 ; Job 3:17 [3] ]), but also the opportunity of continued work ( Revelation 14:13 ).
C. W. Emmet.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Rest
A — 1: ἀνάπαυσις (Strong's #372 — Noun Feminine — anapausis — an-ap'-ow-sis ) "cessation, refreshment, rest" (ana, "up," pauo, "to make to cease"), the constant word in the Sept. for the Sabbath "rest," is used in Matthew 11:29 ; here the contrast seems to be to the burdens imposed by the Pharisees. Christ's "rest" is not a "rest" from work, but in work, "not the rest of inactivity but of the harmonious working of all the faculties and affections, of will, heart, imagination, conscience, because each has found in God the ideal sphere for its satisfaction and development" (J. Patrick, in Hastings' Bib. Dic.); it occurs also in Matthew 12:43 ; Luke 11:24 ; Revelation 4:8 , RV, "(they have no) rest" [1], where the noun is the object of the verb echo, "to have;" so in 14:11.
A — 2: κατάπαυσις (Strong's #2663 — Noun Feminine — katapausis — kat-ap'-ow-sis ) in classical Greek, denotes "a causing to cease" or "putting to rest;" in the NT, "rest, repose;" it is used (a) of God's "rest;" Acts 7:49 ; Hebrews 3:11,18 ; 4:1,3 (twice), RV (1st part), "that rest" (the AV, "rest," is ambiguous), Hebrews 4:5,11 ; (b) in a general statement, applicable to God and man, Hebrews 4:10 .
A — 3: ἄνεσις (Strong's #425 — Noun Feminine — anesis — an'-es-is ) for the significance of which see EASE , B, is translated "rest" in 2 Corinthians 2:13 , AV (RV, "relief"); 7:5 (ditto); in 2 Thessalonians 1:7 , the subject is not the "rest" to be granted to the saints, but the Divine retribution on their persecutors; hence the phrase "and to you that are afflicted rest with us," is an incidental extension of the idea of recompense, and is to be read parenthetically. The time is not that at which the saints will be relieved of persecution, as in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 , when the Parousia of Christ begins, but that at which the persecutors will be punished, namely, at the epiphany (or out-shining) of His Parousia (2 Thessalonians 2:8 ). For similar parentheses characteristic of epistolary writings see 1 Thessalonians 4:10 ; 1:6 ; 2:15,16 .
A — 4: σαββατισμός (Strong's #4520 — Noun Masculine — sabbatismos — sab-bat-is-mos' ) "a Sabbath-keeping," is used in Hebrews 4:9 , RV, "a sabbath rest," AV marg., "a keeping of a sabbath" (akin to sabbatizo, "to keep the Sabbath," used, e.g., in Exodus 16:30 , not in the NT); here the sabbath-keeping is the perpetual sabbath "rest" to be enjoyed uninterruptedly by believers in their fellowship with the Father and the Son, in contrast to the weekly Sabbath under the Law. Because this sabbath "rest" is the "rest" of God Himself, Hebrews 4:10 , its full fruition is yet future, though believers now enter into it. In whatever way they enter into Divine "rest," that which they enjoy is involved in an indissoluble relation with God.
A — 5: κοίμησις (Strong's #2838 — Noun Feminine — koimesis — koy'-may-sis ) "a resting, reclining" (akin to keimai, "to lie"), is used in John 11:13 , of natural sleep, translated "taking rest," RV.
Note: In Acts 9:31 , AV, eirene, "peace" (RV), is translated "rest."
B — 1: ἀναπαύω (Strong's #373 — Verb — anapauo — an-ap-ow'-o ) akin to A, No. 1, in the Active Voice, signifies "to give intermission from labor, to give rest, to refresh," Matthew 11:28 ; 1 Corinthians 16:18 , "have refreshed;" Philemon 1:7 , "are refreshed;" in the Middle Voice, "to take or enjoy rest," Matthew 26:45 ; Mark 6:31 ; 14:41 ; Luke 12:19 , "take thine ease;" 1 Peter 4:14 ; Revelation 6:11 ; 14:13 . See REFRESH. In the papyri it is found as an agricultural term, e.g., of giving land "rest" by sowing light crops upon it. In inscriptions it is found on gravestones of Christians, followed by the date of death (Moulton and Milligan).
B — 2: καταπαύω (Strong's #2664 — Verb — katapauo — kat-ap-ow'-o ) akin to A, No. 2, used transitively, signifies "to cause to cease, restrain," Acts 14:18 ; "to cause to rest," Hebrews 4:8 ; intransitively, "to rest," Hebrews 4:4,10 . See CEASE , A, No. 6, RESTRAIN.
B — 3: ἐπισκηνόω (Strong's #1981 — Verb — episkenoo — ep-ee-skay-no'-o ) "to spread a tabernacle over" (epi, "upon," skene, "a tent"), is used metaphorically in 2 Corinthians 12:9 , "may rest upon (me)," RV, marg., "cover," "spread a tabernacle over."
B — 4: κατασκηνόω (Strong's #2681 — Verb — kataskenoo — kat-as-kay-no'-o ) "to pitch one's tent, lodge," is translated "shall rest," in Acts 2:26 , AV (RV, "shall dwell"). See LODGE.
B — 5: ἡσυχάζω (Strong's #2270 — Verb — hesuchazo — hay-soo-khad'-zo ) "to be still, to rest from labor," is translated "they rested" in Luke 23:56 . See PEACE (hold one's), No. 3.
B — 6: ἐπαναπαύω (Strong's #1879 — Verb — epanapauo — ep-an-ah-pow'-om-ahee ) "to cause to rest," is used in the Middle Voice, metaphorically, signifying "to rest upon" (epi, "upon," and No. 1), in Luke 10:6 ; Romans 2:17 .
Note: For "find rest" Romans 15:32 , RV, see REFRESH , No. 2.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Christ: Our Only Rest
My heart can have no rest, unless it leans on Jesus Christ wholly, and then it feels his peace. But I am apt to leave my resting-place, and when I ramble from it, my heart will quickly brew up mischief. Some evil temper now begins to boil, or some care would fain perplex me, or some idol wants to please me, or some deadness or some lightness creeps upon my spirit, and communion with my Saviour is withdrawn. When these thorns stick in my flesh, I do not try, as heretofore, to pick them out with my own needle, but carry all complaints to Jesus, casting every care upon him. His office is to save, and mine to look for help.–John Berridge.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Rest
Hebrews 4:9, "there remaineth a keeping of sabbath (sabbatismos ) to the people of God." God's rest ("My rest" Hebrews 4:3) was a sabbatism, so will ours be; a home for the exile, a mansion for the pilgrim, a sabbath for the workman weary of the world's weekday toil. In time there are many sabbaths, then there shall be one perfect and eternal. The "rest" in Hebrews 4:8 is katapausis ; Hebrew noach , "rest from weariness": as the ark rested on Ararat after its tossings; as Israel, under Joshua, rested from war in Canaan.
Αnesis (2 Thessalonians 1:7), "relaxation from afflictions". Αnapausis , "rest," given by Jesus now (Matthew 11:28); but the "rest" in Hebrews 4:9 is the nobler "sabbath rest"; katapausis , literally, "cessation from work finished" (Hebrews 4:4) as God rested from His (Revelation 14:13; Revelation 16:17). The two ideas combined give the perfect view of the heavenly sabbath: rest from weariness, sorrow, and sin; and rest in the completion of God's new creation (Revelation 21:5). The renovated creation shall share in it. Nothing will there be to break the sabbath of eternity. The Triune God shall rejoice in the work of His hands (Zephaniah 3:17). The Jews call the future rest "the day which is all sabbath."
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Rest (2)
REST.—1. There is in the Gospels frequent allusion to the value of rest as the purchase of preceding effort, the compensation that is provided for sore afflictions. The Sermon on the Mount, as the proclamation of the new Kingdom, guarantees such rest and peace to those who serve and suffer for the sake of that Kingdom (Matthew 5:1-12). Prosperity in the world can make no such promises (Luke 12:20; Luke 16:25).
2. As rest, physical, social, and religious, is an organic necessity of life, and is protected by conditions of time and place, it should not be set aside for effort that is uncalled for, or that confuses the lower and higher forms of rest. Such was the lesson given in the home at Bethany (Luke 10:42). Similarly, the lilies of the field, while developing to the full their own character in their own place, are content to remain lilies (Matthew 6:28-29).
3. There is an ignoble state of rest that may slothfully or blindly oppose the call to a higher and truer contentment (Matthew 11:17; Matthew 11:22, Luke 19:40). Christ’s gift is life abundant (John 10:10), but the bestowal involves asking, and faith’s exertion of knocking is expected at the entrance into life (Matthew 7:7).
4. In the parable of the Sower, the recompense is in the abundant harvest. This increase is the way of nature where hindering things cease to operate. The list of obstacles typifies the things that impoverish or prevent altogether the fruitfulness of discipleship. In the Kingdom of heaven the instinct of citizenship is to be rich toward God. Its gratification is not toil but rest (Matthew 11:28; see art. Repose).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Rest
So far as the apostolic writings are concerned, the teaching on rest in its relation to the believer’s life is confined to two great passages-Hebrews 4:1-11 and Revelation 14:13. The basis of the idea is the Divine rest, the rest on which God entered at the completion of His work of creation. Participation in this rest is a Divine gift to man. The natural tendency is to conceive rest as mere cessation of work. So far as the Jews shared this misapprehension, it is corrected by our Lord in the discourse of John 5:17 ff. beginning with the words, ὁ πατήρ μου ἕως ἄρτι ἐργάζεται, κἄγω ἐργάζομαι. This idea of rest as freedom for further work finds expression in Revelation 14:13 : ‘Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours (κόπων); for their works (ἔργα) follow with them.’ The ‘labours’ of the Christian’s life are ended at death; its ‘works’-i.e. habits, methods, and results-abide and remain in the new life.
It is in Hebrews 4:1-11 that we find the most exhaustive treatment of this theme. The whole passage may almost be called a homily or discourse having for its text the words of Psalms 95:11, ὡς ὤμοσα ἐν τῇ ὀργῆ̣ μου, εἰ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσίν μου. The rest to which God, as quoted by the Psalmist, refers is the Divine rest, after creation, of which Genesis 2:2 speaks: καὶ κατἐπαυσε τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἔργων αὐτοῦ ὦν ἐπλίνσε, a passage which links the idea of Divine rest indissolubly with the Sabbath. The writer’s argument is briefly this. The inspired oracle in Psalms 95 speaks of a ‘rest’ of God. The Psalmist tells how in the days of Moses this rest lay open to God’s people, but they did not enter in through disobedience. Neither then nor at the entry into Canaan under Joshua was the Divine idea of rest realized. The Psalmist, in fact, implies that the Divine idea still remains unrealized, it still awaits fulfilment; and the author of Hebrews, taking the Psalmist’s word as the last utterance of the OT on the subject of rest, applies it with confidence to his hearers of the NT epoch. He draws the inference ἂρα ἀπολείπεται σαββατισμὸς τῷ τοῦ θεοῦ.
The word σαββατισμὁς (Revised Version ‘Sabbath rest’) occurs here only in the Greek Bible. It is not a coinage of the author’s, because it is found in Plutarch, de Superstit. 3. Its occurrence therefore in Justin Martyr, Dial. 23 B, is not necessarily dependent, on Hebrews. The substitution of this word for κατάπαυσις, the word employed throughout the remainder of the passage, is not accidental. It not only denotes the Divine rest as a Sabbatic rest; it links together, in a most suggestive way, the end with the beginning, the consummation with the creation. It implies too that the rest which God gives is one which He also enjoys, and it strikes the note of universalism, for the Divine rest is prior to the very existence of a chosen people. Just as in the case of salvation, the Christian rest may be viewed both as a present possession and as a future blessing. On the one hand, ‘we which have believed do enter into that rest.’ On the other hand, the very conception of the rest as God’s rest involves fuller realization yet to come.
The word ἀνάπαυσις occurs now and then in the sub-apostolic writings with reference to the heavenly rest. 2 Clem. v. 5 speaks of the ἀνάπαυσις τῆς μελλούσης βασιλείας καὶ ζωῆς αἰωνίου, and in vi. 7 we read, ποιοῦντες γὰρ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ Χριστοῦ εὑρήσομεν ἀνάπαυσιν. The verb καταπαύω occurs throughout an interesting passage (Ep. Bran. 15) in which the hallowing of the Sabbath is discussed as something which will find its fulfilment in Christianity (as opposed to Judaism) in the impending Messianic Age. It is quite possible that the treatment here may be influenced by the thought and language of Hebrews 4:1-11.
In 2 Thessalonians 1:7 the Revised Version agrees with Authorized Version in using ‘rest’ to translate ἄνεσις. This word is used in the NT only by St. Paul, always with a contrast to θλίψις expressed (as here) or implied. That the idea of rest here has an eschatological reference is seen from the following words: ἐν τῇ ἀποκαλύψει τοῦ κυρίου Ἰησοῦ ἀπʼ οὐρανοῦ μετʼ ἀγγέλων δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Rest (And Forms)
Genesis 2:2 (a) This is a wonderful truth represented in this beautiful word. GOD rested after He had finished all His work. So the Christian ceases from all his own labors for salvation and efforts to make himself fit for Heaven, he comes to the Lord JESUS CHRIST, the Saviour of sinners, he trusts his soul to that lovely Lord, and at once enters into GOD's rest. This is described in detail in Hebrews, chapters 3,4.
Genesis 8:9 (c) In this picture we may see the truth that the Christian represented by the dove will find no resting place in all the earth's provisions for the soul. Only in CHRIST, represented by the ark, is there a safe place for rest and peace.
Exodus 33:14 (a) If any man in the world had a right to worry, it was Moses. He had been given the commission and the command to lead about three million people away from their homes, their business, their comforts and conveniences into a desert. There were no bridges, no roads, no stores, no crops, no comforts of any kind. In this tremendously difficult situation, GOD assured Moses that His provision would be so complete that Moses could rest and not worry about anything. This is one of the greatest promises in the Bible. We may have this rest about our lives.
Exodus 34:21 (a) Most of GOD's servants get so busy that they have no time to get away for rest with the Lord. (See Mark 6:31).
Ruth 1:9 (a) Naomi gave some very wrong advice to her two daughters-in-law. None of them had found rest down in Moab, and Moab is a type of the world. The "rest" that she spoke about was rest from the sorrows of widowhood, and the grief that always goes with a broken home. The only place they could find real rest would be among the people of GOD, and under the protecting care of the true GOD. That kind of rest is the portion of those who lay their burdens at the feet of the Lord, and leave them there.
1 Chronicles 6:31 (a) The traveling days of Israel through the wilderness were finished. The ark was to be carried about no more. This is a picture of that which is the blessing of the child of GOD who, in complete consecration, quits his wandering from the paths of the Lord, and gives his life completely to the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 95:11 (a) The blessing which is spoken of in this passage is described more fully in Hebrews 4:5. It is a ceasing from one's own work for salvation, or forgiveness, and a relaxing in GOD's presence because "JESUS paid it all." The work and Person of CHRIST are sufficient to satisfy GOD, and to save the soul. The believer enters into this rest when he ceases from his own works, and trusts fully and entirely in CHRIST JESUS for His salvation.
Psalm 116:7 (a) This is an appeal David makes to his own heart to quit worrying and fretting over the sins of others, or the sorrows of his own path. The Lord Himself takes the burden, blots out the sins, removes the hindrances, and gives us freedom. David called on his soul to enjoy this blessing.
Isaiah 11:10 (a) This is descriptive of the wonderfully blessed condition that shall exist on the earth when all enmity, animosity and antipathy are removed. Man and beast will dwell together in comfort, unity and safety. We may apply this truth now.
Isaiah 28:12 (a) Again our blessed Lord invites His people to quit worrying and fretting about the enemy, or about any other adverse situation. He wants his child to let Him handle all the problems, solve the difficulties and gain the victory.
Isaiah 66:1 (b) In addition to the prophetic aspect in which Israel was to build a temple again for GOD, there is a beautiful type here of that sweet experience of the Christian wherein he builds in his life a character and an experience in which GOD is delighted and in which GOD feels at home. JESUS said, "We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him" ( John 14:23). - thus indicating that GOD is at rest in the life of a loving, obedient Christian.
Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Rest
Most uses of the noun and verb in the Bible are nontheological. However, the verb and noun take on theological and/or spiritual meaning in relation to God, to the people of both the old and new covenants, and to individual believers under both covenants. The most significant theological use in the Bible is found in Hebrews 3:7-4:11 .
The Old Testament . Yahweh, the Creator of the universe, rested from the act of creating on the seventh day. "God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he rested from all the work of creation he had done" (Genesis 2:2 ). God contemplated his own work, knowing that it was good.
The people of Yahweh were also given the blessing of rest—a whole day out of each week in which to rejoice in and contemplate God's works and words. The seventh day was the day of complete rest, the Sabbath, and sacred to the Lord (Exodus 16 ; 23 ; 25 ). It was a day on which everyone, whatever his or her status, had to rest from daily labors; it was a festival for al to keep in honor of the Lord God, who himself rested (Exodus 20:10 ; 23:12 ; 31:15 ).
The tribes of Israel also enjoyed God's gift of rest when they settled in the promised land, which flowed with milk and honey (see Joshua 1:13-15 ; 23:1 ). Canaan is actually called "the resting place [1] the Lord your God is giving you" (Deuteronomy 12:9 ). They also knew such rest when they were delivered from their enemies (Joshua 14:15 ; 21:44 ; Judges 3:11,30 ). This rest of peaceful living was granted by God as the people looked to him alone and sought to keep his covenant.
With respect to the covenant relation of Yahweh to his people, we read that his fury rested on them in judgment (Ezekiel 5:13 ; 16:42 ; 21:7 ) and that his hand and Spirit rested on them in blessing (Isaiah 11:2 ; 25:10 ; Jeremiah 6:16 ).
The New Testament . The primary Greek words are the nouns anapausis [2] and katapausis [3], and the verbs anapauo [4] and katapauo [5].
In the Gospels the theology of rest is most clearly articulated in the words of Jesus: "come to me and I will give you rest and you will find rest for your souls" (Matthew 11:28-30 ). The rest he promises is certainly for the world to come, but it is also for this world. It is the sense of security and peace that flows from a right relation with God, the Father, through obedience to his Son, the Messiah, and membership in his kingdom.
In Hebrews 3-4 the verb katapauo [5] occurs three times and the noun, katapausis, eight times. Also, the Greek text of Psalm 95:11 ("they shall never enter my rest") is cited eight times. Joshua was given the task by Yahweh of leading the tribes of Israel into the promised land, into the rest promised them by their God. This task was fulfilled in an earthly sense by Joshua, as the Book of Joshua describes. However, the fuller meaning of the everlasting rest of God promised to his people and related to the gift of rest of the seventh day was not achieved by Joshua and the tribes under the old covenant. Jesus the Christ, the greater Joshua, was sent by the Father to bring into being the true nature and fullness of the gift of rest for the people of God.
The rest is rightly called a "sabbath rest" because it is a participation in God's own rest. When God completed his work of creation, he rested; likewise when his people complete their service to him on earth, they will enter into God's prepared rest. Now, in this age, the rest is before them as their heritage and by faith they live in the light of it in this world. How this is done is wonderfully illustrated with the wealth of biographical detail in Hebrews 11 . Here the rest is also portrayed as a city prepared for God's faithful peoplea city whose builder is God himself. Whatever this rest consists of it is not a state of complete inactivity, such as the rest of the wicked (Job 3:17-19 ).
In Revelation 14:13-14 the heavenly voice speaks of the blessedness of those who die in the Lord and the Spirit replies: "They will rest from their labor for their deeds will follow them." Here a different dimension of the meaning of rest is being pointed toa rest that is not inactivity but is certainly free of the burdens of the flesh and of the present, evil age.
Finally, we note that as the Spirit of the Lord rests on the Messiah (Isaiah 11:2 ), so in the new covenant, "If you [7] are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you" (1 Peter 4:14 ).Peter Toon

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Rest, Remain
Nûach (נוּחַ, Strong's #5117), “to rest, remain, be quiet.” This word is common to ancient and modern Hebrew, as well as ancient Akkadian and Ugaritic. It occurs in the text of the Old Testament approximately 65 times; the first occurrence is in Gen. 8:4: “And the ark [1] … upon the mountains of Ararat.” This illustrates the frequent use of this word to show a physical settling down of something at some particular place. Other examples are birds (2 Sam. 21:10), insects (Exod. 10:14), and soles of feet in the waters of the Jordan (Josh. 3:13).
“To rest” sometimes indicates a complete envelopment and thus permeation, as in the spirit of Elijah “resting” on Elisha (2 Kings 2:15), the hand of God “resting” on the mountain (Isa. 25:10), and when Wisdom “resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding” (Prov. 14:33). Frequently nûach means “to be quiet” or “to rest” after hard work (Exod. 20:11), from onslaught of one’s enemies (Esth. 9:16), from trouble (Job 3:26), and in death (Job 3:17). The word may mean “to set one’s mind at rest,” as when a child receives the discipline of his parent (Prov. 29:17). Sometimes nûach means “to leave at rest” or “to allow to remain.” Thus, God “allowed” the pagan nations “to remain” in Canaan during Joshua’s lifetime (Judg. 2:23). God threatened to abandon the Israelites in the wilderness (Num. 32:15).
It should be noted that while nûach is used sometimes as a synonym for shabat, “to cease, to rest” (Exod. 20:11), shabat really is basically “to cease” from work which may imply rest, but not necessarily so. The writer of Gen. 2:3 is not stressing rest from work but rather God’s ceasing from His creative work since it was complete.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Rest
In Acts 9:31 , refers to the respite from persecution enjoyed by the Christians in Palestine, after the conversion of Saul of Tarsus, during the last two years of Caligula's short reign, A. D. 39,40, when the Jews were so harassed by the attempts of the emperor to force them to worship him as a god, that they forbore to afflict the followers of Christ.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Rest
The first allusion to rest in scripture is on the part of God after His works of creation. Genesis 2 . It may be assumed, therefore, that while the term means cessation from labour, it also covers the idea of complacency in the result of the labour; and this thought probably underlies the institution of the sabbath; for it is clear from Psalm 95 and Hebrews 4 that it was in the thought of God that man should enter into His rest. But sin entered into the world by man, with all its baneful consequences; and unless God were to acquiesce in a world of sin and moral woe He must needs work in grace. Hence the word of Christ, "My Father worketh hitherto [1], and I work." John 5:17 . This untiring activity of God is intimated by various expressions in the O.T. God is again and again described as 'rising up early,' sending His prophets, etc. Eventually Christ came to do the will of His Father, and to finish His work . When the full results of the death of Christ are displayed, and all enemies subdued, then God will again enjoy His sabbath of rest, and His people too will enter into His rest.
The Lord Jesus in His ministry on earth, when recognising the absence of moral effect from His mighty works, and retiring consequently into the service of revealing the Father to the babes, invited those who laboured and were heavy laden to come to Him for rest. Matthew 11:28 . Those who felt the rejection of Christ here were invited to take His yoke upon them, and learn of Him, who was meek and lowly of heart, and they should find rest unto their souls. Matthew 11:29 . The soul thus has, outside of circumstances here, a portion unaffected by circumstances, and that satisfies all its longings. On the other hand there is no rest to the wicked, who are like the troubled waves of the sea; and those who bow to the future imperial beast and his image will have no rest from their torments day nor night for ever and ever. Isaiah 57:20,21 ; Revelation 14:11 .

Rest - A — 1: ἀνάπαυσις (Strong's #372 — Noun Feminine — anapausis — an-ap'-ow-sis ) "cessation, refreshment, Rest" (ana, "up," pauo, "to make to cease"), the constant word in the Sept. for the Sabbath "rest," is used in Matthew 11:29 ; here the contrast seems to be to the burdens imposed by the Pharisees. Christ's "rest" is not a "rest" from work, but in work, "not the Rest of inactivity but of the harmonious working of all the faculties and affections, of will, heart, imagination, conscience, because each has found in God the ideal sphere for its satisfaction and development" (J. ); it occurs also in Matthew 12:43 ; Luke 11:24 ; Revelation 4:8 , RV, "(they have no) Rest" [1], where the noun is the object of the verb echo, "to have;" so in 14:11. ...

Because this sabbath "rest" is the "rest" of God Himself, Hebrews 4:10 , its full fruition is yet future, though believers now enter into it.

Rest - " God's Rest ("My Rest" Hebrews 4:3) was a sabbatism, so will ours be; a home for the exile, a mansion for the pilgrim, a sabbath for the workman weary of the world's weekday toil. The "rest" in Hebrews 4:8 is katapausis ; Hebrew noach , "rest from weariness": as the ark Rested on Ararat after its tossings; as Israel, under Joshua, Rested from war in Canaan. Αnapausis , "rest," given by Jesus now (Matthew 11:28); but the "rest" in Hebrews 4:9 is the nobler "sabbath Rest"; katapausis , literally, "cessation from work finished" (Hebrews 4:4) as God Rested from His (Revelation 14:13; Revelation 16:17). The two ideas combined give the perfect view of the heavenly sabbath: Rest from weariness, sorrow, and sin; and Rest in the completion of God's new creation (Revelation 21:5). The Jews call the future Rest "the day which is all sabbath
Shabbat - "rest", "cessation"); the Sabbath, the divinely-ordained day of Rest on the seventh day of the week
Rest - So far as the apostolic writings are concerned, the teaching on Rest in its relation to the believer’s life is confined to two great passages-Hebrews 4:1-11 and Revelation 14:13. The basis of the idea is the Divine Rest, the Rest on which God entered at the completion of His work of creation. Participation in this Rest is a Divine gift to man. The natural tendency is to conceive Rest as mere cessation of work. This idea of Rest as freedom for further work finds expression in Revelation 14:13 : ‘Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may Rest from their labours (κόπων); for their works (ἔργα) follow with them. The Rest to which God, as quoted by the Psalmist, refers is the Divine Rest, after creation, of which Genesis 2:2 speaks: καὶ κατἐπαυσε τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἔργων αὐτοῦ ὦν ἐπλίνσε, a passage which links the idea of Divine Rest indissolubly with the Sabbath. The inspired oracle in Psalms 95 speaks of a ‘rest’ of God. The Psalmist tells how in the days of Moses this Rest lay open to God’s people, but they did not enter in through disobedience. Neither then nor at the entry into Canaan under Joshua was the Divine idea of Rest realized. The Psalmist, in fact, implies that the Divine idea still remains unrealized, it still awaits fulfilment; and the author of Hebrews, taking the Psalmist’s word as the last utterance of the OT on the subject of Rest, applies it with confidence to his hearers of the NT epoch. ...
The word σαββατισμὁς (Revised Version ‘Sabbath Rest’) occurs here only in the Greek Bible. It not only denotes the Divine Rest as a Sabbatic Rest; it links together, in a most suggestive way, the end with the beginning, the consummation with the creation. It implies too that the Rest which God gives is one which He also enjoys, and it strikes the note of universalism, for the Divine Rest is prior to the very existence of a chosen people. Just as in the case of salvation, the Christian Rest may be viewed both as a present possession and as a future blessing. On the one hand, ‘we which have believed do enter into that Rest. ’ On the other hand, the very conception of the Rest as God’s Rest involves fuller realization yet to come. ...
The word ἀνάπαυσις occurs now and then in the sub-apostolic writings with reference to the heavenly Rest. The verb καταπαύω occurs throughout an interesting passage (Ep. ...
In 2 Thessalonians 1:7 the Revised Version agrees with Authorized Version in using ‘rest’ to translate ἄνεσις. That the idea of Rest here has an eschatological reference is seen from the following words: ἐν τῇ ἀποκαλύψει τοῦ κυρίου Ἰησοῦ ἀπʼ οὐρανοῦ μετʼ ἀγγέλων δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ. -Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols) , article ‘Rest’; H
Ease, Eased - Its chief significance is that of taking, or causing to take, Rest; it is used in the Middle Voice in Luke 12:19 , "take (thine) ease," indicative of unnecessary, self-indulgent relaxation. anapausis, "rest. " See REFRESH , Rest. It signifies "rest," not from toil, but from endurance and suffering. Thus it is said (a) of a "less vigorous" condition in imprisonment, Acts 24:23 , "indulgence," AV, "liberty;" (b) "relief" from anxiety, 2 Corinthians 2:13 ; 7:5 , "relief" (AV, "rest"); (c) "relief" from persecutions, 2 Thessalonians 1:7 , "rest;" (d) of "relief" from the sufferings of poverty, 2 Corinthians 8:13 , "be eased," lit. the synonymous word anapausis, "cessation or Rest" (akin to A). See INDULGENCE , LIBERTY , RELIEF , Rest
Sabbath - ) A season or day of Rest; one day in seven appointed for Rest or worship, the observance of which was enjoined upon the Jews in the Decalogue, and has been continued by the Christian church with a transference of the day observed from the last to the first day of the week, which is called also Lord's Day. ) The seventh year, observed among the Israelites as one of Rest and festival. : A time of Rest or repose; intermission of pain, effort, sorrow, or the like

Rest - Yahweh, the Creator of the universe, Rested from the act of creating on the seventh day. "God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he Rested from all the work of creation he had done" (Genesis 2:2 ). ...
The people of Yahweh were also given the blessing of Rest—a whole day out of each week in which to rejoice in and contemplate God's works and words. The seventh day was the day of complete Rest, the Sabbath, and sacred to the Lord (Exodus 16 ; 23 ; 25 ). It was a day on which everyone, whatever his or her status, had to Rest from daily labors; it was a festival for al to keep in honor of the Lord God, who himself Rested (Exodus 20:10 ; 23:12 ; 31:15 ). ...
The tribes of Israel also enjoyed God's gift of Rest when they settled in the promised land, which flowed with milk and honey (see Joshua 1:13-15 ; 23:1 ). Canaan is actually called "the Resting place
With respect to the covenant relation of Yahweh to his people, we read that his fury Rested on them in judgment (Ezekiel 5:13 ; 16:42 ; 21:7 ) and that his hand and Spirit Rested on them in blessing (Isaiah 11:2 ; 25:10 ; Jeremiah 6:16 ). ...
In the Gospels the theology of Rest is most clearly articulated in the words of Jesus: "come to me and I will give you Rest and you will find Rest for your souls" (Matthew 11:28-30 ). The Rest he promises is certainly for the world to come, but it is also for this world. Also, the Greek text of Psalm 95:11 ("they shall never enter my Rest") is cited eight times. Joshua was given the task by Yahweh of leading the tribes of Israel into the promised land, into the Rest promised them by their God. However, the fuller meaning of the everlasting Rest of God promised to his people and related to the gift of Rest of the seventh day was not achieved by Joshua and the tribes under the old covenant. Jesus the Christ, the greater Joshua, was sent by the Father to bring into being the true nature and fullness of the gift of Rest for the people of God. ...
The Rest is rightly called a "sabbath Rest" because it is a participation in God's own Rest. When God completed his work of creation, he Rested; likewise when his people complete their service to him on earth, they will enter into God's prepared Rest. Now, in this age, the Rest is before them as their heritage and by faith they live in the light of it in this world. Here the Rest is also portrayed as a city prepared for God's faithful peoplea city whose builder is God himself. Whatever this Rest consists of it is not a state of complete inactivity, such as the Rest of the wicked (Job 3:17-19 ). ...
In Revelation 14:13-14 the heavenly voice speaks of the blessedness of those who die in the Lord and the Spirit replies: "They will Rest from their labor for their deeds will follow them. " Here a different dimension of the meaning of Rest is being pointed toa Rest that is not inactivity but is certainly free of the burdens of the flesh and of the present, evil age. ...
Finally, we note that as the Spirit of the Lord Rests on the Messiah (Isaiah 11:2 ), so in the new covenant, "If you [7] are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God Rests on you" (1 Peter 4:14 )

Rest, Remain - Nûach (נוּחַ, Strong's #5117), “to Rest, remain, be quiet. 8:4: “And the ark [1] … upon the mountains of Ararat. ...
“To Rest” sometimes indicates a complete envelopment and thus permeation, as in the spirit of Elijah “resting” on Elisha (2 Kings 2:15), the hand of God “resting” on the mountain ( Rest” after hard work ( Rest,” as when a child receives the discipline of his parent ( Rest” or “to allow to remain. ...

Rest - Rest . The conception of Rest as a gift of God runs through the Bible, the underlying idea being not idleness, but the freedom from anxiety which is the condition of effective work. It is promised to Israel in Canaan ( Exodus 33:14 , Deuteronomy 3:20 ), and Zion is the Resting-place of J″ [1] ( Psalms 132:8 ; Psalms 132:14 ), the Temple being built by ‘a man of Rest’ ( 1 Chronicles 22:9 ; a contrast is implied with the desert wanderings in Numbers 10:33-36 ).

Rest (2) - REST. There is in the Gospels frequent allusion to the value of Rest as the purchase of preceding effort, the compensation that is provided for sore afflictions. The Sermon on the Mount, as the proclamation of the new Kingdom, guarantees such Rest and peace to those who serve and suffer for the sake of that Kingdom (Matthew 5:1-12). As Rest, physical, social, and religious, is an organic necessity of life, and is protected by conditions of time and place, it should not be set aside for effort that is uncalled for, or that confuses the lower and higher forms of Rest. There is an ignoble state of Rest that may slothfully or blindly oppose the call to a higher and truer contentment (Matthew 11:17; Matthew 11:22, Luke 19:40). Its gratification is not toil but Rest (Matthew 11:28; see art. Moore, The Promised Rest (1904); R

It may be assumed, therefore, that while the term means cessation from labour, it also covers the idea of complacency in the result of the labour; and this thought probably underlies the institution of the sabbath; for it is clear from Psalm 95 and Hebrews 4 that it was in the thought of God that man should enter into His Rest.

Sabbath - The day which God appointed to be observed by the Jews as a day of Rest from all secular labor or employments, and to be kept holy and consecrated to his service and worship. This was originally the seventh day of the week, the day on which God Rested from the work of creation and this day is still observed by the Jews and some christians, as the sabbath. Intermission of pain or sorrow time of Rest
Sabbath - Hebrew "rest. " Applied to the days of Rest in the great feasts, but chiefly to the seventh day Rest (Exodus 31:15; Exodus 16:23). ...
The meaning therefore of Genesis 2:3 is, God having divided His creative work into six portions sanctified the seventh as that on which He Rested from His creative work. The divine Rest was not one of 24 hours; the divine sabbath still continues. He ordained man for labour, yet graciously appointed one seventh of his time for bodily and mental Rest, and for spiritual refreshment in his Maker's worship. All mankind are included in the privilege of the seventh day Rest, though the Jews alone were commanded to keep it on Saturday. Only the covetous and carnal were impatient of its Restraints (Amos 8:5-6). The 12 loaves of shewbread representing the offerings of the 12 tribes symbolized the good works which they should render to Jehovah; diligence in His service receiving fresh quickening on the day of Rest and holy convocation before Him. So Christ condemns the burdensome sabbath Restraints multiplied by the Pharisees, violating the law of mercy and man's good for which the sabbath was instituted (Matthew 12:2; Matthew 12:10-11; Luke 13:14; Luke 14:1; Luke 14:5; John 7:22; Mark 2:23-28); yet inviting guests to a social meal was lawful, even in their view (Luke 14:5). ...
Not inaction, but Rest from works of neither mercy nor necessity, is the rule of the sabbath. Man's Rest is to be like God's Rest. God's Rest was satisfaction in contemplating His work, so "very good," just completed in the creation of man its topstone (Genesis 1:31). So man's Rest is in the sabbath being the dose of week day labour done in faith toward God. The sabbath is thus a foretaste of the heavenly (sabbatism ) "keeping of sabbath" (Hebrews 4:9-10 margin), when believers shall Rest from fatiguing "labours" (Revelation 14:13). The Father's Rest after creation answers to Christ's after redemption's completion. The Sabbath was further a "sign" or sacramental pledge between Jehovah and His people, masters and servants alike Resting, and thereby remembering the Rest from Egyptian service vouchsafed by God. The Decalogue was proclaimed with peculiar solemnity from Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16-24); it was written on tables of stone, and deposited in the ark (representing Himself) covered by the mercy-seat on which Rested the Shekinah cloud of His glory; Moses significantly states "these vows the Lord spoke, and He added no more. (See LORD'S DAY; Rest. The law leads to Christ, there its office ceases: it is Jesus, the Antitype of Joshua, who leads us into the heavenly Rest (Hebrews 4:8-9). As the antitypical Sabbath Rest will not be until Christ comes to usher us into it, the typical earthly Sabbath must continue until then

New Testament The habit of Jesus was to observe the sabbath as a day of worship in the synagogues (Luke 4:16 ), but His failure to comply with the minute Restrictions brought conflict (Mark 2:23-28 ; Mark 3:1-6 ; Luke 13:10-17 ; John 5:1-18 ).

His argument was this, that the period of time which extended from the birth of Christ to the descent of the Holy Ghost was a time of deep ignorance, during which the Jews were destitute of divine light; and that, of consequence, the sins and enormities which were committed during this interval were in a great measure excusable, and could not merit the severest displays of the divine justice

4: λοιπόν (Strong's #3063 — Adverb Neuter — loipon — loy-pon' ) "finally, for the Rest," the neuter of loipos, "(the) Rest," used adverbially, is rendered "then" in Acts 27:20 , AV (RV, "now
Sabbath - (shabbath ), "a day of Rest," from shabath "to cease to do to," "to Rest"). (5:15) The words added in Deuteronomy are a special motive for the joy with which the Sabbath should be celebrated and for the kindness which extended its blessings to the slave and the beast of burden as well as to the master: "that thy man servant and thy maidservant may Rest as well as thought. But in truth, the prohibition of work is only subsidiary to the positive idea of joyful Rest and recreation in communion with Jehovah, who himself "rested and was refreshed. The divine method of working and Rest is there propose to work and to Rest. Time then to man as the model after which presented a perfect whole it is most important to remember that the Fourth Commandment is not limited to a mere enactment respecting one day, but prescribes the due distribution of a week, and enforces the six days' work as much as the seventh day's Rest. A consideration of the spirit of the law and of Christ's comments on it will show that it is work for worldly gain that was to be suspended; and hence the Restrictive clause is prefaced with the Restrictive command. "Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work;" for so only could the sabbatic Rest be fairly earned. Hence, too, the stress constantly laid on permitting the servant and beast of burden to share the Rest which selfishness would grudge to them
Seven - One day in seven was a holy day of Rest, and this weekly unit provided the framework for various religious festivals (Exodus 20:8-11; Leviticus 23:5-6; Leviticus 23:15; Leviticus 23:34; see SABBATH). Every seventh year was a year of Rest for the land and release for debtors (Leviticus 25:1-4; Deuteronomy 15:1-2; see SABBATICAL YEAR)
Sparrow - Moreover, it is one of the clean birds: (see Leviticus 11:1-47) not that I suppose that the sparrow, so called in Scripture, is of the same genus or tribe as our English sparrows of the barn; though this much despised bird is in my esteem a very sweet, interesting, and domestic bird; but certainly the sparrow, or the Tzippher, as the Hebrews called it, of the Scriptures, must have been of gentle and familiar manners. ...
But let the reader pause over the thought of the sparrow making a nest for herself, and where in safety she might lay her young, high on the altar of the Lord's house, far out of the reach of the malice of all robbers of her nest, or murderers of herself and her young; and then let him contemplate the beauty of the similitude, when a child of God flies to the New Testament altar of his security, even to Jesus, and finds a Rest in him, far above the reach of all disturbers of his repose, by Resting in him, and Resting to him, yea, making Jesus himself his Rest, and his portion for ever! (See Psalms 84:1-4)...
Mansion - ’...
Apart, then, from John 14:2, μονή remains a purely abstract noun, meaning (1) abiding, (2) continuance, (3) Rest. So in 927 A the material elements as conceived by Empedocles are reduced to order by the introduction of the principle of love (φιλότητος ἐγγενομένης), ἳνα … τὰ μὲν κινήσεως τὰ δὲ μονῆς ἀνάγκαις ἐνδεθένπα … ἁρυονίαν καὶ κοινωνίαν ἀπεργάσηται τοῦ παντός, where μονή has the complete meaning of Rest as opposed to motion. And in 747 C he uses the plural of ‘rests’ in dancing; ἐνταῦθα δὲ αἑ μοναὶ πέρατα τῶν κινήσεων εἰσίν. 2 and 23, concrete and abstract respectively, will be derived from the idea of Rest that has become attached to the word, as well as from the original idea of remaining. ’ In John 14:23 the phrase combines, like μοναί in John 14:2, the meanings of ‘abiding’ and ‘rest’ with that of the ‘home’ in which the Rest is found. Their consummation realizes the ideal of John 17:21; John 17:23; meanwhile they are the NT fulfilment of the two OT ideals of Rest: ‘Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him’ (Psalms 37:7), and ‘Arise, O Lord, into thy Resting-place; thou, and the ark of thy strength’ (Psalms 132:8). John 14:2, that is, refers not only to the perpetual ‘rest’ or ‘home’ in the life hereafter, but, like v
Repose - ) the point that Jesus needed repose, bodily Rest, relaxation, as witnessing to His real human nature. Withdrawal from time to time for Rest and prayer was simply imperative. Nor must we overlook in another connexion the homely picture of Jesus Resting, tired out with His journey, given in John 4:6. Such, too, is the relation of Gethsemane’s agony to the calm dignity which shows itself through all the Rest of the Via Dolorosa. In the well-known passage Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus offers the gift of repose (ἀνάπαυσις, Authorized and Revised Versions Rest) to those who will learn of Him. It is true, ἀνάπαυσις strictly speaking denotes relief from labour, a break to afford Rest to tired toilers (see Trench, NT Synonyms, § 41); and it seems also to imply the resumption of labour

As the seventh day was observed by the Jewish church in memory of the Rest of God after the works of the creation, and their deliverance from Pharaoh's tyranny, so the first day of the week has always been observed by the Christian church in memory of Christ's resurrection. It seems abundantly sufficient that there be six days of labour and one of religious Rest, which there will be upon the Christian and the Jewish scheme. "Look into the streets, " says bishop Porteus, "on the Lord's day, and see whether they convey the idea of a day of Rest. That day seems to be considered by too many as set apart, by divine and human authority, for the purpose not for Rest, but of its direct opposite, the labour of travelling, thus adding one day more of torment to those generous but wretched animals whose services they hire; and who, being generally strained beyond their strength the other six days of the week, have, of all creatures under heaven, the best and most equitable claim to suspension of labour on the seventh.

Sabbath - The Greek noun sabbat [ Leviticus 23:15-16 ) at the end of every seven Sabbaths or fifty days, or the Sabbath year (Leviticus 25:1-7 ) in which the land was to be at complete Rest. Yet despite any significance that accrues on the basis of its frequency or inclusion in the Decalogue, its importance Rests ultimately on its symbolic representation of the order of creation. For, according to the Genesis narrative, God himself Rested on the seventh day, thus making it sacred (Genesis 2:1-2 ). First, Exodus 20:8-11 makes a clear connection between the Sabbath day and the seventh day on which God the Creator Rested. ...
Third, the Sabbath is a day of Rest and worship given as a gift from the Restless condition of slavery. What constitutes Rest and work? In the Torah there are only two explicit prohibitions concerning work on the Sabbath. Resting in bed all day does not amount to a keeping of the Sabbath. But scholarly consensus finds in the prophetic writings a subtle transformation wherein the Sabbath, formerly a social institution of festivity, Rest, and worship, became above all a religious mark of personal and national holiness vis-a-vis the Gentiles. Just as naturally as one would lead an ox or donkey to water (13:15) or rescue a child who has fallen into a well on the Sabbath (14:5), Jesus Acts, with eschatological urgency, in the interest of life and salvation. ...

Primacy - As for the first of these, a primacy of worth, we may well grant it to Peter, admitting that probably he did exceed the Rest of his brethren in personal endowments and capacities; particularly in quickness of apprehension, boldness of spirit, readiness of speech, charity to our Lord, and zeal for his service. this advantage cannot be refused him, being a necessary consequent of those eminent qualities resplendent in him, and of the illustrious performances achieved by him beyond the Rest. This may be inferred from that renown which he hath had from the beginning; and likewise from his being so constantly ranked in the first place before the Rest of his brethren. Peter had been instituted sovereign of the apostolical senate, his office and state had been in nature and kind very distinct from the common office of the other apostles, as the office of a king from the office of any subject; and probably would have been signified by some distinct name, as that of arch-apostle, arch- pastor, the Vicar of Christ, or the like; but no such name or title was assumed by him, or was by the Rest attributed to him
Sabbath - But in usage it is almost confined to the day of Rest which closed each week of seven days, the cycle running continuously through the calendar without regard to the month or the year. It is a singular fact that except in the expansions of the Fourth Commandment in Exodus 20:9-11 and Deuteronomy 5:13-15 (which are evidently no part of the original Decalogue), there is nothing in the pre-exilic literature which explicitly indicates that the word ‘Sabbath’ denoted a weekly day of Rest . Where, on the other hand, the weekly Rest is inculcated ( Exodus 23:12 ; Exodus 34:21 ), the name ‘Sabbath’ does not occur. Although a regularly recurring day of Rest is neither necessary nor possible for pastoral nomads, it is quite conceivable that some form of Sabbath observance, depending on the phases of the moon, was practised by the Hebrews in the desert, and that the transformation of this primitive lunar festival into the Sabbath as we find it in the OT was due to the suppression of its superstitious associations under the influence of the national religion of Israel. The distinctive characteristics of the Hebrew Sabbath were mainly these two: it was, first, a day sacred to Jahweh, and second, a day of Rest. The obligation of Rest, from being a necessary concomitant of acts of worship, or a means to a higher end, becomes an end in itself, a form of self-denial, pleasing to the Deity as an act of implicit obedience to His positive command
Union - ) A device emblematic of union, used on a national flag or ensign, sometimes, as in the military standard of Great Britain, covering the whole field; sometimes, as in the flag of the United States, and the English naval and marine flag, occupying the upper inner corner, the Rest of the flag being called the fly

Saviour - Had he not been God, how should he have been able to save, for who less than God can save?

God the Father declared that he sent him as a Saviour and a great one, and he should deliver his people, and his name should be called Jesus: (see Isaiah 19:20; Matthew 1:21) Hence the believer in Christ finds a just warrant for faith to Rest upon, not only in the completeness of what Christ hath wrought, but also in the appointment and approbation of God the Father: so that here the preciousness of the Saviour, and the preciousness of the salvation, come home endeared to the heart

(1 Kings 8:27) But what would this mighty monarch have said, had he lived to have seen the Lord of heaven and earth tabernacling in the substance of our flesh?...
But, though, according to the language of Scripture, we call that place heaven which John saw opened, and where the more immediate presence of the Lord is gloriously displayed, yet it were to limit the Holy One of Israel to suppose, that JEHOVAH dwelleth in any place, to the exclusion of his presence or glory elsewhere

The judgment had the salutary effect designed, of guarding the church in its infancy from the adhesion of hypocrites; for "great fear came upon all the church and upon as many as heard it; and of the Rest durst no man join himself to them, but the people magnified them. By the Lord's direction in a vision, he sought out Saul in his blindness and foodlessness for three days after Jesus' appearing to him; putting hands on Saul, Ananias was the Lord's instrument of Restoring his sight, and conveying to him the Holy Spirit, that he might be "a chosen vessel to bear Jesus' name before the Gentiles, and kings and Israel, as a witness unto all men of what he had seen and heard, suffering as well as doing great things for His name's sake
Vagabond - In the sentence on Cain, it is joined with the word fugitive; so that while, according to our ideas; a vagabond implies a state of Restlessness and of wandering, a fugitive carries with it the notion of flight. So that in both, the person was without Rest, and always on flight, like Pashur, whose name was Magor-missabib; that is, as the margin of the Bible renders it, fear round about. Cain trusted to his own righteousness and was rejected: and hence the Lord said, "If thou doest well—that is, if thou offerest a pure, unblemished, perfect obedience; shalt thou not be accepted?" As if the Lord had said, whosoever seeks acceptance in himself and his own well-doing, it must be wholly and completely so: a failure in a single point is a failure in all.

"Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of Rest unto the land, a sabbath for Jehovah: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. It reads almost like a prophecy: the land should lie desolate "because it did not Rest in your sabbaths. And as the land was to have Rested one year in every seven, it follows that the 70 answering to 70 × 7 = 490 years

The call is probably addressed in the first instance to those who, groaning under ‘the yoke of the law,’ which generations of Rabbinic teaching and Pharisaic formalism had made intolerable, had no hope of Rest for their souls. To all Christ offers ‘rest,’ a ceasing from the crushing weight and from the hopeless toil, an inward, satisfying peace. ‘The first word presents faith in deed as active and outward, the second presents faith in thought as Resting and inward’ (Westcott on John 6:35). ’ This involves the recognition of Him as ‘Lord,’ a whole-hearted obedience, an absolute surrender in which nothing, not even the dearest object of earthly affection, shall weigh with us against Him, a readiness to suffer shame and death for His sake. ...

One by one the giant forest kings were overthrown, but the labor was immense and incessant. At night when they went to their Rest, the day's work always seemed so light, for as they crossed the threshold, Patience, wiping the sweat from his brow, would be encouraged, and Self-denial would be strengthened by hearing the sweet voice of Hope within singing, 'God will bless us, God, even our own God, will bless us

Seven Words, the - The two last words, ‘It is finished’ (John 19:30), and ‘Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit’ (Luke 23:46), were spoken in the Restored light. They reveal to us the victory, the completed work, and the entering into Rest. The word of victory is followed by the word of Rest—rest after the burden and heat of the day. ‘Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening’ (Psalms 104:23), and then cometh Rest—rest with Christ in Paradise

Trumpets, Feast of - ) Besides the daily sacrifices and the eleven victims of the new moon, the ordinary feast of the first day of the month, there were offered a young bullock, a ram, and seven first year lambs, with meat offerings and a kid for a sin offering, it was one of the seven days of holy convocation, moadim ; the other new moons were not, like it, days of sacred Rest and convocation, though they were marked by a blowing of trumpets over the burnt offerings. ...

Cedar - ...
This forest is regarded by the neighboring people with superstitious reverence. But God in retributive justice "consumed the glory of the Assyrian's forest" figuratively; fulfilling His threat, "the Rest of the trees of his forest shall be few that a child may write them" (Isaiah 10:18-19). Solomon's 80,000 hewers must have inflicted such havoc that the cedar forest never recovered it completely
Noah - (noh uh) A personal name of uncertain meaning, related to “rest
Enoch - The resemblances between the two lists seem to show that they Rest on a common tradition, preserved in different forms by J Leviathan - ]'>[1] and some recent expositors interpret Psalms 104:26 ); the Jordan empties itself into his mouth; his flesh will be for food to the godly in the days of the Messiah; part of his skin will be made into a tent for them, whilst the Rest is spread on the walls of Jerusalem, and its brightness is visible to the ends of the earth (En 60

Amalek, Amalekites - In the days of Hezekiah the Rest of the Amalekites were smitten by the sons of Simeon
Measure - The Rest of the word’s occurrences are scattered throughout every period of biblical Hebrew
Eraclius, Deacon of the Church of Hippo - 425, had inherited considerable property, part of which he spent in raising a "memoria" of the martyr [1]; the Rest he offered as a gift to the church. Augustine, fearing that the absolute acceptance of such a gift from so young a man might be the subject of future reproval or regret, caused Eraclius first to invest the money in land, which might be given back to him should any unforeseen reason for Restitution arise
Might - In messianic expectations the prophets projected the Messiah’s special role as a demonstration of “might” and counsel: “And the spirit of the Lord shall Rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” ( Lot - He removed with the Rest of his kindred to Charran, and again subsequently with Abraham and Sarai to Canaan

James - On the day of the ascension he is mentioned as persevering with the Rest of the apostles and disciples, in prayer
Lot - He removed with the Rest of his kindred to Charran, and again subsequently with Abraham and Sarai to Canaan
Thirst - Just as man in the vigour of physical health revolts against physical deprivation in the shape of thirst, so in proportion to his spiritual health and energy he reaches out and cries for spiritual satisfaction, and cannot Rest as long as his wants are unsupplied. In this Restlessness Jesus sees a source of men’s ultimate happiness, and those He accounts blessed (μακάριοι) who thirst for righteousness (διψῶντες τὴν δικαιοσύνην, Matthew 5:6). It is impossible not to see in this living relationship between Jesus and believers the foundation upon which must ultimately Rest all human activities, as they display themselves in the service of the race
Token - The interpretation of the passage involves a two-fold question: (a) What is meant by ‘the righteous judgement of God’? (b) What is the ‘manifest token’ (ἔνδειγμα) of it? of it? The ‘righteous judgement’ is the future and final judgment referred to in 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10, based on the principle of compensation laid down by our Lord in Luke 16:25, that the sufferers of this world shall Rest hereafter, and the persecutors shall suffer. It is not, however, suffering per se that can look forward to this future Rest and joy but suffering that comes of faith, and is endured for the Kingdom of God (Luke 16:5). It is an Attic law term and appears to mean, more distinctively, ‘proof’ that Rests on an appeal to facts, as contrasted with mere logical demonstration. ’ An exhaustive account of these interesting words would require a general examination of the epistolary methods of the contemporary Graeco-Roman world
Thieves - Marvelous faith! when the Rest had given up all hopes of His Messiahship (Luke 24:20-21) he takes for granted the coming of Christ's kingdom, yet unlike the impatient disciples (Acts 1:6-7) is content to wait Christ's own time. His acceptance is but a slight stay for procrastinators to Rest on for the general acceptance of deathbed repentances

Minister - Instead of the poor Italian water-bearer, we see before us the man of God, whose voice is heard in the chief places of concourse, proclaiming the divine invitation, 'Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters!' until he grows grey in the service, ançl men say, 'Surely those aged limbs have need of Rest ;' yet Rest he courts not, but pursues his task of mercy; never laying down his charge till he lays down his body, and never ceasing to work until he ceases to live. ...

Jew - God, to carry out his purpose and preserve his church, called Abraham to leave his father's house and his country, and separated him and his household from the Rest of mankind; gave him special promises, made covenants with him, and constituted him the "Father of the Faithful" to the world. They were separated from the world by most stringent laws; and it was necessary during all that time for the Rest of mankind, through the Jews, to learn the way to be saved. and among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have Rest. In some of these the world has an interest. The Restoration and conversion of the Jews is thus connected with the great ingathering of all nations into the Church of Christ; and the time of this is at hand
Numbers as Symbols - Seven days in a week, every seventh day was a day of Rest, every seventh year was a year of Rest for the land, and every seven times seven years brought the jubilee. Creation was complete on the seventh day, God's Rest being the result
Sign - ...
Exodus 31:13 (a) The Sabbath was a sign of that blessed Rest which would be offered in its fullness through the Lord JESUS and in His blessed Person when He came and said, "I will give you Rest. ...
It was a sign of GOD's loving interest in the needs of men. It is interesting to note that the lame man was by the pool and the blind man went to the pool. We should note also that both of these "signs" were given on the sabbath to teach us that when we are able to walk with GOD and are able to see the things of GOD as we should, then we have Rest in our souls. As the young man in joh4was about to die and needed to be kept alive, so in this case the man was already dead and needed to be Restored to life
Pharisees - They derived their name from the Hebrew word pharash, which signifies "separated," or "set apart;" because they separated themselves from the Rest of the Jews to superior strictness in religious observances. ...
Lastly: the Pharisees contended that God stood engaged to bless the Jews, to make them all partakers of the terrestrial kingdom of the Messiah, to justify them, and make them eternally happy. And their wearing broader phylacteries and larger fringes to their garments than the Rest of the Jews, Matthew 23:5 . A few, and a few only, of the sect of the Pharisees, in those times, might be of better character,—men who, though self-righteous and deluded and bigoted, were not like the Rest, hypocritical
Immanuel - The purpose of Isaiah was to calm the terror of the people ( Isaiah 7:2 ), and to Restore faith in Jehovah ( Isaiah 7:9 ). But Ahaz and his own kingdom shall become the prey of Assyria ( Isaiah 7:17 ); the Rest of the chapter consists of pictures of desolation. The Rest of the chapter does not refer to Christ, but to the troubles of the reign of Ahaz; is it legitimate to tear half a dozen words from their context, and apply them arbitrarily to an event happening generations after? ( b ) It is suggested that the maiden is the wife of Ahaz and that her son is Hezekiah, the king of whom Isaiah rightly had such high hopes; or ( c ) that she is the ‘prophetess,’ the wife of Isaiah himself. The name of the child and Isaiah 7:16 speak of deliverance; Isaiah 7:15-17 and the Rest of the chapter, of judgment. The simplest method is to follow the critics who omit Isaiah 7:16 , or at least the words ‘whose two kings thou abhorrest’; ‘the land’ will then refer naturally to Judah; if referring, as it is usually understood, to Syria and Ephraim, the singular is very strange. The real problem is not to account for the name ‘Immanuel,’ or for the promise of a saviour-king, but to understand what part he plays in the Rest of the chapter
Sennacherib - The king of Tyre fied to Cyprus, Sidon and the Rest of Phœnicia were taken or submitted, and placed under a king Ethbaal. Ashkelon and Ekron were captured, and Hezekiah had to Restore Padi to the throne of Ekron after keeping him some time in prison

Rebekah - ...
She saved Jacob from Esau's murderous fury by inducing Isaac to send him away to Padan Aram (Genesis 28:1-5); thus she brought on herself by the one great sin the loss of her favorite's presence for the Rest of her life, for she was not alive when he returned, Isaac alone survived (Genesis 35:27)

Jesus hears the voice of God pronouncing a benediction in clearest remembrance of Psalms 2:7, ‘Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee,’ and of Isaiah 42:1 ‘My chosen, in whom my soul delighteth’ (quoted in Matthew 12:18; cf
Bel - Bel had a temple erected to him in the city of Babylon, on the very uppermost range of the famous tower of Babel, wherein were many statues of this pretended deity; and one, among the Rest, of massy gold, forty feet high

Paul, the Gospel was propagated in those countries which used the Grecian dialects: hence, we are interested in the study of this language
World - The Hebrew terms have these literal meanings: "The earth," "rest," "the grave," Isaiah 38:11; "the world," corresponding to aion in the New Testament, or that which is finite, temporary, Job 11:17; "the veiled," unlimited time, whether past or future; used very frequently, and generally translated "forever;" and, finally, the poetical term for "world," which occurs some 37 times, but in various meanings which are easily understood

Beloved - There is abundance of love throughout the Gospels: whether of Jesus for John and the Rest, or of the disciples and others for Him: and there is no weakness or timidity in the expression of the love. Jesus hears the voice of God pronouncing a benediction in clearest remembrance of Psalms 2:7, ‘Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee,’ and of Isaiah 42:1 ‘My chosen, in whom my soul delighteth’ (quoted in Matthew 12:18; cf
Agriculture -
The six months from the middle of Tisri to the middle of Nisan were occupied with the work of cultivation, and the Rest of the year mainly with the gathering in of the fruits.

Nature, Natural - Their basic interest in nature focused on God as Creator and on heaven and earth as his creation. "...
There is a close bond between humankind and the Rest of creation (Genesis 3:17-18 ; Psalm 96:10-13 ). There are physiological similarities between humankind and the Rest of creation (Genesis 1:26-272 ; Job 10:8-9 ; Psalm 103:14 ). Similarly, although creation suffers under the curse of the fall, it too looks forward to the Restoration of the original creation order
Consecrate, Consecration - In Leviticus 21:10 τετελειωμένος is used without the Rest of the phrase = ‘consecrated,’ although many Manuscripts supply τᾶς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ. ζῶσαν implies ‘a way that really leads and carries all who enter it into the heavenly Rest,’ as opposed to ‘a lifeless pavement trodden by the high priest, and by him alone’ (Delitzsch, Hebrews, Eng

Eusebius of Alexandria, a Writer of Sermons - He who fasts must fast with "tongue, eyes, hands, feet"; his whole "body, soul, and spirit" must be Restrained from all sinful indulgence. Some sentences shew a true spiritual insight: "What sort of righteousness exceeds the Rest? Love, for without it no good comes of any other. The Christian should look forward to Sunday, not simply as a day of Rest from labour, but as a day of prayer and Communion
Joshua, Theology of - In addition to the obedience of the people in taking possession of the land according to God's will, there is a significant theological theme of Rest before God. After the wars the whole land has Rest (11:23). The people as well find Rest as they enter into their inheritance. Specific references are also found, as in the cases of Caleb whose conquest of Hebron results in the land being given Rest (14:15) and of Joshua who settled in Timnath Serah (19:50). The records of the deaths and burials of Joshua, Joseph, and Eleazar, which conclude the book (24:29-33) reflect a final Resting place for them in three sites located throughout the central hill country of Palestine, the region where Israel first settled
the Woman With the Issue of Blood - And when again your evil heart runs with envy, and anger, and pride, and ill-will, and unkindness, and all the Rest of the bad blood of hell,-all that the more grasp you at Him and at His garment. Here love runs down, and here joy in your neighbour's joy, and here sweetness of temper, and here humility of mind, and here goodwill, and here attraction to people, and here brotherly kindness, and all the Rest of that holy oil. Did you ever read Richard Baxter's Reasons why the Rest that remains for the people of God is never entered on and enjoyed here? What a splendid debate that seraphic preacher holds with all those saints of God whose hearts are broken continually with an unalleviable pain and with an insatiable hunger after holiness. What depths, both in God and man, Baxter sounds on that great subject, and what heights he scales! O my brethren, be pleaded with to read almost exclusively the books that are pertinent to your sinful and immortal souls-such as The Saint's Rest
Tyrannus - ’ This addition is all of a piece with the idea that Tyrannus was a schoolmaster or professor, whose work, according to the ancient custom, would be over early in the day, thus leaving the building free for the Rest of the day
Olves, Mount of - The 'mount' is so intimately connected with the private, the devotional life of the Saviour, that we read of it and look at it with feelings of deepest interest and affection. Here he gave them the beautiful parables of the ten virgins and the five talents (25); here he was wont to retire on each evening for meditation, and prayer, and Rest of body, when weary and harassed by the labours and trials of the day (Luke 21:37 ); and here he came on the night of his betrayal to utter that wonderful prayer, 'O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt' (Matthew 26:39 )

Last - The combination of “first” and “last” is an idiom of completeness: “Now the Rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam the son of Nebat?” ( Asher - ...

Charity - "Charity, " says an able writer, "consists not in speculative ideas of general benevolence floating in the head, and leaving the heart, as speculations often do, untouched and cold: neither is it confined to that indolent good nature which makes us Rest satisfied with being free from inveterate malice, or ill will to our fellow creatures, without prompting us to be of service to any. From general good will to all, it extends its influence particularly to those with whom we stand in nearest connection, and who are directly within the sphere of our good offices

Zerubbabel - Only when Haggai and Zechariah began their stirring preaching in 520 BC did Zerubbabel, Joshua and the Rest of the people get to work again (Ezra 5:1-2; Haggai 1:1-6; Haggai 1:14-15)
Personal Effort: Needed For Success - But on a sudden they said in the council-chamber, 'We have at our head a most valiant warrior, one whose arm is stout enough to smite down fifty of his adversaries; would it not be better if, leaving a few such as he to go out to the fight, the mere men-at-arms, who make up the ordinary ranks, were to Rest at home? We should be much more at our ease; our horses would not so often be covered with foam, nor our armor be bruised, the many would enjoy abundant leisure, and great things would be done by the valiant few. Then the knights met together, and said, 'How is this? Our former prestige is departed, our ranks are broken, our pennons are trailed in the dust, what is the cause of it?' When out spoke the champion, and said, 'Doubtless it is so, and for a reason clear and plain

Foreigner - ...
Foreigners who worked for Israelites were to have one day Rest in seven the same as Israelites (Exodus 20:10)
Power Powers - There is a strange variation in the RV_ of 2 Corinthians 12:9, where δύναμις is twice used as an attribute of Christ; on the first occasion it renders ‘my power is made perfect in weakness’ (AV_ ‘my strength’), but on the second (where the AV_ has ‘power’) it gives ‘that the strength of Christ may Rest upon me,’ Elsewhere ‘power’ is uniformly used by the RV_, replacing ‘might’ and ‘strength’ of the AV_ (cf
Gilead - ...
Gilead, like the Rest of the area east of Jordan, had large open plains that were good for raising sheep and cattle. The region was also good for growing fruit and grain, and had hilly areas of forest (Numbers 32:1; Numbers 32:26; Numbers 32:36; Jeremiah 22:6; Jeremiah 50:19)
Tabernacles, Feast of - " Isaiah 11 refers to the future Restoration of Israel; the feast of tabernacles connected with chapter 12 doubtless will have its antitype in their Restored possession of and Rest in Canaan, after their long dispersion; just as the other two great feasts, Passover and Pentecost, have their antitype respectively in Christ's sacrifice for us, and in His writing His new law on our hearts at Pentecost. Rest after wanderings, lasting habitations after the life of wanderers, is the prominent thought of joy in the feast, alike in its former and in its future celebration
Noah - In contrast to the Cainite Lamech's boast of violence with impunity, the Sethite Lamech, playing on Noah's ("rest") name, piously looks for "comfort" (nachum ) through him from Jehovah who had "cursed the ground. "A window system" (Gesenius) or course of windows ran for a cubit long under the top of the ark, lighting the whole upper story like church clerestory windows. five months of 30 days each; and the ark Rested on Ararat the 17th of the seventh month (Genesis 7:11-12; Genesis 7:24; Genesis 8:4). Noah successively sent, to ascertain the state of the earth, at intervals of seven days, a raven which Rested on the ark but never entered it, wandering up and down and feeding on the floating caresses (emblem of the Restless worldly spirit), and a dove, which finding no Rest for the sole of her foot returned and Noah put forth his hand and took her and pulled her in unto him into the ark (emblem of the soul first drawn by Jesus to Himself: John 6:44; John 10:28-29); next she brought a fresh olive leaf (emblem of peace and the Holy Spirit, the earnest of our inheritance: 1618091042_3), which can live under a flood more than most trees; Theophrastus (Hist. Noah's first act was a sacrifice of thanksgiving; "and Jehovah smelled a savour of Rest," in consonance with Noah's name meaning "rest", and promised, in consideration of man's evil infirmity, not to curse the ground any more nor to smite every living thing as He had done, but to cause seedtime and harvest, day and night, not to cease. Assurbanipal was closely connected with Erech, it alone remaining loyal when the Rest of Babylonia revolted; to it therefore he Restored the idol Nana, which the Elamites carried away 1635 years before (2295 B. it searched a Rest which it did not find, and returned. After the flood abated Xisuthrus sent out birds which not finding food or Rest returned.

(3) The fatherly heart of God does not Rest satisfied in the eternal Sonship in God. Jesus does not say ‘Go to the Father’; He says ‘Come unto me, and I will give you Rest. ’ This is because He is the revealer of the Father; and the Rest He offers is Rest in the Fatherhood of God. He found Rest to His own soul in the Father: ‘I thank thee, O Father … Even so, Father’ (Matthew 11:25-26). This Rest He desires to give to others

Festivals - It functioned as a reminder of the Lord's Rest at the end of the creation week (Genesis 2:3 ) and also of the deliverance from slavery in Egypt (Deuteronomy 5:12-25 ). The sabbath day was observed by strict Rest from work from sunset until sunset (Exodus 20:8-11 ; Nehemiah 13:15-22 ). Despite such Restrictions even as kindling a fire (Exodus 35:3 ) or any work (Numbers 28:11-15 ; Exodus 35:2 ), the sabbath was a joyful time (Isaiah 58:13-14 ). It was celebrated as a sabbath with Rest from ordinary labors and the calling of a holy convocation (Leviticus 23:21 ; Numbers 28:26 ). The day of atonement was a “sabbath of Rest” (Leviticus 23:32 ), and the Israelites were forbidden to do any work at all

" The Rest He found not on earth in contrast to His creatures the foxes and birds, He found in this consummating act on the cross. 1); in 2 Corinthians 12:14 , negatively, of children for parents; metaphorically, of "laying" up wrath, Romans 2:5 , "treasurest up. ...

The dearest process was said by the Egyptian priests to belong to Osiris, the judge of the dead, who however was not to be named
Kenites - The Kenites did not as Edom dwell in the rocks (1618091042_53), but by leaving their nomadic life near Horeb to join Israel wandering in quest of a home the Kenite really placed his Rest upon a safe rock, and would only be carried away when Assyria and Babylon took Israel and Judah; with the difference however that Judah should be Restored, but the Kenites not so because they forfeited God's blessing by maintaining independence of Israel though intimately joined and by never entering inwardly into God's covenant of grace with Israel
Heaven - It was natural to think of the heavens as concave above the earth, and Resting on some foundation, possibly of pillars, set at the extreme horizon ( 2 Samuel 22:9 , Proverbs 8:27-29 ).

Hind - In our version of Psalms 29:9 , we read, "The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests. Merrick, in an ingenious note on the place, attempts to justify the rendering; but Bishop Lowth, in his "Lectures on the Sacred Poetry of the Hebrews," observes that this agrees very little with the Rest of the imagery, either in nature or dignity; and that he does not feel himself persuaded, even by the reasonings of the learned Bochart on this subject: whereas the oak, struck with lightning, admirably agrees with the context. The passage may be thus versified:—...

Olives, Mount of - ...
The chief interest of the mountain, however, is its connexion with the closing years of our Lord’s life. The southernmost, which is separated from the Rest by the cleft just mentioned, on the slope of which stands the village of Siloam ( Silwân ), is traditionally known (by the Franks) as the ‘Mount of Offence,’ and is considered to be the scene of Solomon’s idolatry. Far more interesting than these ecclesiastical inventions are the numerous ancient Jewish and early Christian tombs (especially the tomb of Nicanor the donor of the ‘Beautiful Gate’ of the Temple; the extraordinary labyrinth commonly known as the ‘Tombs of the Prophets’); and the fragments of mosaic found here from time to time which testify to the pious regard in which the mount was naturally held from early times

Lamp - " (1 Samuel 3:3-4) Was not this emblematical of the Spirit of prophecy, that before one lamp of the Lord went out another should be lighted, before Eli was quite extinguished Samuel should be kindred? Do we not find it so through the church's history in all ages? Did not the spirit of Elijah Rest on Elisha? Did not all the prophets succeed one another in their ministry, as might best promote and carry on the Lord's cause in the earth? I do not presume to speak decidely upon the subject, but if the thought be right, is there not great sweetness in that Scripture explained in reference to this view, and with an eye to the Lord Jesus?

Considerateness - Their bodily needs He anticipates and provides for, as in the case of the hungering multitudes (Matthew 15:32, Mark 8:1-3, Luke 9:13, John 6:5), where, moreover, He takes care also that nothing of the store He had provided should be lost (John 6:12), and in the case of His over-wrought disciples (‘Come ye apart and Rest awhile,’ Mark 6:31). Peter, who, as he had thrice denied his Lord, is thrice Restored with delicate allusion to, but not mention of, his threefold fall (John 21:15; John 21:17), are examples no less shining and illustrative

Eusebius, Bishop of Rome - That he was buried in the cemetery of Callistus Rested on the authority of the Liberian Deposit. But ancient itineraries, written by persons who had visited these tombs, described his Resting-place as not being the papal crypt in that cemetery, where all the popes (with two exceptions) since Pontianus had been laid, but in a separate one some distance from it.

Zerub'Babel - The difficulties in the way of building the temple were not such as need have stopped the work and during this long suspension of sixteen years Zerubbabel and the Rest of the people had been busy in building costly houses for themselves. [2] The only other works of Zerubbabel of which we learn from Scripture are the Restoration of the courses of priests and Levites and of the provision for their maintenance, according to the institution of David (Ezra 6:18 ; Nehemiah 12:47 ) the registering the returned captives according to their genealogies, (Nehemiah 7:5 ) and the keeping of a Passover in the seventh year of Darius, with which last event ends all that we know of the life of Zerubbabel, His apocryphal history is told in 1Esdr

Superstition - But as he has no idea of that which the Divinity really is, he cannot duly understand this feeling of estrangement from God, this consciousness of divine wrath, and, instead of seeking in moral things the source of this unquiet feeling, which leaves him no Rest by day or night, and from which there is no escape, he fancies that by this or that action, which of itself is perfectly indifferent, he may have offended this higher power, and he seeks by outward observances again to reconcile the offended power. There is one kind of superstition in which, while man torments himself to the utmost, he still remains estranged from the true nature of inward holiness; and while he is Restrained from many good works of charity by his constant attendance on mischievous, arbitrary, and outward observances, he is still actuated by a horror of any great sin, a superstition in which man avoids pleasure so completely that he falls into the opposite extreme; and even the most innocent enjoyments, which a childlike simplicity would receive with thankfulness from the hand of a heavenly Father, he dares not indulge in
Shushan - Large blocks of marble, covered with hieroglyphics, are not unfrequently here discovered by the Arabs when digging in search of hidden treasure; and at the foot of the most elevated of the pyramids stands the tomb of Daniel, a small and apparently a modern building, erected on the spot where the relics of that prophet are believed to Rest

Ark of the Covenant - In the wilderness "the ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them in the three days' journey to search out a Resting place for them; and when the ark set forward, Moses said, Rise up, Lord, and let Thine enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Thee flee before Thee. And when it Rested, he said, Return, O Lord, unto the many thousands of Israel" (Numbers 10:33-36; Psalms 68:1; 1 Samuel 4:21-2248). ...
The Restriction of the ark's contents to the decalogue implies that this is the central core of all the various precepts, the moral end for which the positive precepts were given. Josiah Restored it to its place in the house of God (2 Chronicles 33:7; 2 Chronicles 35:3). ...
It was not moved from its "rest" (Psalms 132:8; Psalms 132:14) when once Jerusalem became the fixed capital, and the hill of Zion God's chosen seat, until its forcible removal under Nebuchadnezzar; God giving up the apostate Jews to the pagan world power. But from the first Rest was appointed as its final condition, and under David it obtained that "rest" (Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 1 Chronicles 6:31; 1 Chronicles 16:1)
King - ’ According to this view, His work is finished; His present state is one of royal Rest, and it remains for God to complete the subjugation of the hostile powers. ) thinks that the only original contribution made by the author of the Revelation in this picture of the millennium is the representation of the interregnum as a period of peace and Rest (Revelation 20:2-3; Revelation 20:7). that peace and Rest characterize the millennium
Sacrifice - After this, all the Rest of the sacrifice belonged to him who presented it, and he might eat it with his family and friends at his pleasure, Leviticus 8:31 . And the priest, taking a handful of this flour, with all the frankincense, sprinkled them on the fire of the altar; and all the Rest of the flour was his own: he was to eat it without leaven in the tabernacle, and none but priests were to partake of it. As to other offerings, fruits, wine, meal, wafers, or cakes, or any thing else, the priest always cast a part on the altar; the Rest belonged to him and the other priests. With each of these victims was offered half a pint of wine, half a pint of the purest oil, and an assaron, or about five pints, of the finest flour
Psalms, Book of, - , the interest of which centers in the times of Hezekiah stretches out, by its last two psalms, to the reign of Manasseh: it was probably compiled in the reign of Josiah. contains the remainder of the psalms up to the date of the captivity, There are seventeen, from Psal 90-106 --one by Moses, two by David, and the Rest anonymous. , the psalms of the return, contains forty-four, from Psal 107-180 --fifteen by David, one by Solomon and the Rest anonymous. We are now brought to a series of psalms of peculiar interest, springing out of the political and religious history of the,separated ten tribes. Psal 139 is a psalm of the new birth of Israel from the womb of the Babylonish captivity, to a life of righteousness; Psal 140-143 may be a picture of the trials to which the unrestored exiles were still exposed in the realms of the Gentiles. Now there are in the Psalter at least three psalms of which the interest evidently centers in a person distinct from the speaker, and which, since they cannot without violence to the language be interpreted of any but the Messiah, may be termed directly and exclusively Messianic. It would be strange if these few psalms stood, in their prophetical significance absolutely alone among the Rest
Heaven - Hence the conception of heaven is wholly spiritualized, and the thought of it as an intermediate place of Rest disappears. (account of the ten heavens in order; Paradise is in the third heaven, and also the place of punishment for the wicked), Leviticus 2, lxvii, 2, 4 Maccabees 13:16; 4 Maccabees 5:37; 4 Maccabees 18:23 (note the phrase ‘Abraham’s bosom’ used for the place of Rest for the righteous after death). An intermediate place of Rest for the righteous (Apoc. There are the multitudes of the redeemed (Revelation 7:9-17); the souls of the martyrs are seen under the altar in heaven; they are granted white robes, and Rest until the appointed number of the martyrs is made up. The nearest approach to a suggestion of a place is the phrase ‘in my Father’s house are many abodes,’ which may perhaps be taken as a spiritualizing of the Temple (cf. Apart from this, the idea of a place of material joy or Rest does not appear. 5: ‘the Rest of the kingdom that shall be’; vi. We have the simple acceptance of the doctrine that the righteous enter after death into a place of Rest and glory with Christ. ...
(c) The Martyrdom of Polycarp contains one interesting passage describing the condition of Polycarp after martyrdom: ‘Having by his endurance overcome the unrighteous ruler in the conflict and so received the crown of immortality, he rejoiceth in company with the Apostles and all righteous men, and glorifieth the Almighty God and Father, and blesseth our Lord Jesus Christ’ (xix. the centre of interest was not heaven but the Parousia of Christ.

Lord's Day - For this weekly gathering the Sabbath was unsuitable, as being then observed in a spirit radically different from the joy and liberty of the new faith; doubtless also the Restrictions as to length of a Sabbath day’s journey would prove a bar to the gathering together of the little body. ...
Not the least interesting evidence is found in a report to the Emperor Trajan written by Pliny, a heathen magistrate, not long after the death of St. It sprang from the love of God for man, providing by religious sanction for the definite setting apart of the seventh day as a time for Rest from labour and for communion with God. But if the Gentile Christian did not observe the Jewish Sabbath, yet he could not be ignorant of its deeper meaning, for he saw the Sabbath observed by his Jewish neighbours, and read in the OT of its institution and uses; and thus imperceptibly the essential principles of the Sabbath would pass into the Christian idea of their own sacred day of Rest and worship
Creation - Also that it is not consistent to hold that God's Rest on the seventh day only alluded to 24 hours. † It is true that the introduction of sin marred God's Rest; but this is not there contemplated
Water - ” Rest and peace are figured by waters of Rest, or quiet waters: “… He leadeth me beside the still waters” ( Nazareth - Clarke, "that the capital and a piece of the shaft of a pillar of gray granite have been fastened on to the roof of the cave; and so clumsily is the Rest of the hocus pocus contrived, that what is shown for the lower fragment of the same pillar Resting upon the earth, is not of the same substance, but of Cipolino marble. The yearly expenses of the establishment are stated to amount to upward of nine hundred pounds; a small part of which is defrayed by the rent of a few houses in the town, and by the produce of some acres of corn land: the Rest is remitted from Jerusalem
Maronites - Even the shaiks live in the same manner, and are only distinguished from the Rest by a bad peliss, a horse, and a few slight advantages in food and lodging; they all live frugally, without many enjoyments, but also with few wants, as they are little acquainted with the inventions of luxury. Contrary to the precepts of that same religion, however, they have admitted, or retained, the Arab custom of retaliation, and the nearest relation of a murdered person is bound to avenge him. It should seem that this institution might introduce among them the ideas and arts of Europe; but the pupils of this school, limited to an education purely monastic, bring home nothing but the Italian language, which is of no use, and a stock of theological learning, from which as little advantage can be derived; they accordingly soon assimilate with the Rest
Cerinthians - Cerinthus has been handed down as the first person who held the notion of a millennium; and though the fathers undoubtedly believed that, previous to the general resurrection, the earth would undergo a renovation, and the just would rise to enjoy a long period of terrestrial happiness, yet there was a marked and palpable difference between the millennium of the fathers and that of Cerinthus. The fathers conceived this terrestrial happiness to be perfectly pure and freed from the imperfections of our nature; but Cerinthus is said to have promised his followers a millennium of the grossest pleasures and the most sensual gratifications. It was taught, in the Cabbala, that the world was to last six thousand years, which would be followed by a period of Rest for a thousand years more. There appears in this an evident allusion, though on a much grander scale, to the sabbatical years of Rest. The institution of the jubilee, and the glowing descriptions given by the prophets of the Restoration of the Jews, and the reign of the Messiah, may have led the later Jews to some of their mystical fancies; and when all these systems were blended together by the Gnostics, it is not strange, if a millennium formed part of their creed long before the time of Cerinthus
Messiah - However, to facilitate the success of this bold enterprise, he changed his name from Caziba, which it was at first, to that of Barchocheba, alluding to the star foretold by Balaam; for he pretended to be the star sent from heaven to Restore his nation to its ancient liberty and glory. And on the day appointed, this false Moses, having led them to the top of a rock, men, women, and children threw themselves headlong down into the sea, without the least hesitation or reluctance, till so great a number of them were drowned as opened the eyes of the Rest, and made them sensible of the cheat. He, like the Rest, perished, and brought great persecution on his countrymen
Psalmody - He versified the first fifty at the instigation of Vatablus, Hebrew professor at Paris; and afterward, upon his return to Geneva, he made an acquaintance with Beza, who versified the Rest, and had tunes set to them; and thus they began to be sung in private houses, and afterward were brought into the churches of the French and other countries. He went through but thirty-seven of them, the Rest being soon after finished by Hopkins and others
Type - If, again, no specific declaration be made, respecting the typical character of any event or person, until after the second event has occurred, which is then declared to have been prefigured; the fact of preconcerted connection will Rest solely upon the authority of the person who advances the assertion. And the peaceable dominion of Solomon prefigured that eternal Rest and peace, which remaineth to the people of God
Atonement, Day of - For this latter feast implied Rest in Israel's inheritance; and before Rest can be realized atonement must precede. Going out from the holiest, the high priest purified, by sprinkling seven times with the bullock's and the gent's blood, the holy place and the golden altar; and then outside he poured the Rest of the blood round the altar of burnt offering; the places defiled by the priest's and the nation's sins being thus made ceremonially and typically fit for the indwelling of God; compare as to the Antitype 1618091042_60
Peace (2) - ἥσυχος, ‘at Rest’), denoting a state of Restfulness in which silence is included (cf. Luke 23:56 τὸ μὲν σάββατον ἡσύχασαν ‘and on the sabbath they Rested’). In the ordinary sense of Rest or tranquillity, in antithesis to strife and war, ‘peace’ (εἰρήνη) is found, e. Yet, for all that, peace was the purpose of His mission, even though it had to be attained by sending forth a sword—sharp and twoedged, as the seer saw it (Revelation 1:16)—a sword which will ultimately secure the victory of the good in the conflict with evil, and bring in the peace that Rests on righteousness (cf. It was, without doubt, the magnetism of this peace-possessing and peace-diffusing strength of Jesus that drew troubled hearts around Him; and it was the consciousness of having it and being able to bestow it that inspired that most characteristic invitation, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you Rest’ (Matthew 11:28)
Hebrews, Epistle to the - The saints are viewed as in the wilderness on their way to the Rest of God. If God had been revealed in the Son become man, Man is also presented before God in this same blessed One, and this in answer to the quotation from Psalm 8 , "What is man, that thou rememberest him? " etc. Then is stated what is of the deepest interest, namely, that those who are sanctified — believers in Him — are all of one with the sanctifier Himself: they are His brethren, and form the company identified with Him, "Behold I and the children which God has given me. " This 'if' introduces a reference to the forty years' wandering in the wilderness, the argument being that the Hebrews at that time were not able to enter the Rest of God because of not hearkening to the word — because of unbelief. The Rest of God is what He has in view for His people. The Rest now is neither that of creation nor that of Canaan, but one still future, into which those enter who believe. Let all use diligence to enter into that Rest, hearkening to the word, which is sharper than a two-edged sword and discovers the very motives of the heart. Believers must resist to blood, if need be, wrestling against sin. Chastening after all is necessary, and a proof of God's interest in them as sons
Cast - ) To throw down, as in wrestling. ) To impose; to bestow; to Rest
Bashan - Fitted for pasture; so assigned with half Gilead from Mahanaim to the half tribe of Manasseh, as the Rest of Gilead was to Reuben and Gad, as those tribes abounded in flocks and herds (Joshua 13:29-32; Numbers 32:1-33). Famed for its forests of oaks (Isaiah 2:13). Psalms 68:22, "I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring My people again from the depths of the sea," means, "I will Restore Israel from all quarters, and from dangers as great as their conflict with Og of Bashan, and, as the passage through the Red Sea
Canon (1) - The Romanists, in defense of this canon, say, that it is the same with that of the council of Hippo, held in 393; and with that of the third council of Carthage of 397, at which were present forty-six bishops, and among the Rest St
Druids - He had absolute authority over the Rest, and commanded, decreed, and punished at pleasure
Midrash - This was followed by the midrashim on the Rest of the Pentateuch and the Five Scrolls (Megilloth)
Mass - The fixed or Ordinary part of the Mass consists of: ...
Confession at the foot of the altar which is always the same, except at Passiontide and at Requiems, when Psalms 42 is omitted
the Introit, entrance or opening prayer, at the priest's right hand corner of the altar, to the Offertory, all of which part is variable except the Gloria and Credo, which are not always said
the Offertory, which is fixed or Common, except for the Secret prayer and the Preface which is adapted for certain feasts
the Canon, which varies slightly on Easter and Pentecost Sundays
the Communion, always Proper, and the Rest to the end Common as a rule, except the Postcommunion, the Ite Missa Est when the vestments are purple or black, and the Last Gospel in Lent, on vigils, and Sundays when a special Feast is celebrated
Fear - Such healthy fear enables one to praise God (Psalm 22:23 ; Revelation 14:7 ); to enjoy benefits and blessings at his hand (Psalm 34:9 ; 103:11,13 , 17 ); to Rest in peace and security (Psalm 112:7-8 ); and to experience length of days (Proverbs 10:27 ; 19:23 )
Saying And Doing - But a profession must Rest upon a solid foundation of character. Matthew 26:33-34, Luke 14:28); but His severest rebukes were reserved for those who substituted a hollow and obtrusive pretension for the realities of moral and spiritual character
Camel - The camel’s hair which is used for weaving (Mark 1:6 , Matthew 3:4 ) is specially taken from the back, neck, and neighbourhood of the hump: over the Rest of the body the ordinary camel has his hair worn short
Laying on of Hands - The gesture was included in the ceremony that separated seven gifted men from the Rest of the early Jerusalem church for the task of overseeing the distribution of food to those in need (Acts 6:3-6 )
Epaphroditus - Partly to relieve that solicitude and to satisfy the ‘longing’ of Epaphroditus; partly to convey the Apostle’s grateful acknowledgment of the recent gift; partly also, we may presume (although with delicate consideration this reason is not expressly stated), in order that the invalid’s health may be fully Restored through entire Rest such as he would not take in Rome, the Apostle sends him back to Philippi with a cordial testimony to his zealous labours and chivalrous service
All - In the sense of although, as, "all were it as the Rest," and in the sense of just, or at the moment, as "all as his straying flock he fed," it is obsolete, or Restricted to poetry
Righteousness - RIGHTEOUS, RIGHTEOUSNESS...
It is very highly important and interesting to have clear apprehensions of the Scriptural meaning of the term righteous. " Blessed and happy souls who, from a deep conviction of the total corruption and depravity of their own nature, are Resting all their high hopes of acceptance and justification before God in the perfect and complete righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ; who behold him, and accept the authority of JEHO VAH for this well-grounded confidence of beholding him, and Rest with full assurance of faith in him, as the Lord their righteousness; and to whose spirits the Holy Ghost bears witness that "he is made of God to them wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, that, according as it is writ ten, he that glorieth let him glory in the Lord
Idolatry - Scripture shows the folly of a man cutting down a tree, and burning part of it to cook his food and to warm himself, and yet making a god of the Rest, and worshipping it, Isaiah 44:14-17 ; and yet Israel, to whom God had revealed Himself, not only as Creator but in redemption, adopted these wicked follies
Ark - "...
Sometimes divine attributes replace the divine name: "Arise, O Lord, into thy Rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength" (Psalm 132:8)
First-Fruit - The offering of first-fruits made the Rest of the crop lawful. , we learn that the apostles, during their missionary journeys, appointed their ‘firstfruits,’ when they had approved them, to be bishops and deacons; and it is interesting to find that St
Alexander the Great - As to his cruelty let one instance suffice: at the capture of Tyre which then belonged to Persia, provoked by the long resistance and valiant defence, 8,000 of the inhabitants were massacred, 2,000 being crucified: of the Rest, except those who escaped by sea, 30,000 were sold into slavery, the king and the chief magistrates were spared, doubtless as trophies. On seeing these Alexander was arrested, fell to the ground and then embraced the high priest
Hero - He had the power to deliver: “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will Rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing” ( Carmel - Though spoken of in general as a single mountain, it ought rather to be considered as a mountainous region, the whole of which was known by the name of Carmel, while to one of the hills, more elevated than the Rest, that name was usually applied by way of eminence. Its sides are steep and rugged; the soil neither deep nor rich; and among the naked rocks stinted with plants, and wild forests which it presents to the eye, there are at present but few traces of that fertility which we are accustomed to associate with the idea of Mount Carmel
Beget, Bear, Born - , in point of time, inferior to the Rest of the Apostles, as an immature birth comes short of a mature one
Labor - , "to cause toil or trouble," to embarass a person by giving occasion for anxiety, as some disciples did to the woman with the ointment, perturbing her spirit by their criticisms, Matthew 26:10 ; Mark 14:6 ; or by distracting attention or disturbing a person's Rest, as the importunate friend did, Luke 11:7 ; 18:5 ; in Galatians 6:17 , "let no man trouble me," the Apostle refuses, in the form of a peremptory prohibition, to allow himself to be distracted further by the Judaizers, through their proclamation of a false gospel and by their malicious attacks upon himself. (3) In Colossians 4:12 , AV, agonizomai, "to strive, wrestle," is translated "laboring fervently" (RV, and AV, marg
Tent - The Egyptian and Moorish inhabitants of Askalon are said to use white tents; and D'Arvieux mentions that the tent of an Arab emir he visited was distinguished from the Rest by its being of white cloth
Under - But morph, in Ethiopic, signifies cessation, Rest. ...
To keep under, to hold in subjection or control to Restrain
Parable - (Ezekiel 12:22 ) In the New Testament itself the word is used with a like latitude in (Matthew 24:32 ; Luke 4:23 ; Hebrews 9:9 ) It was often used in a more Restricted sense to denote a short narrative under which some important truth is veiled. These ask the meaning of the parable, and will not Rest until the teacher has explained it
Altar - Like the altar of burnt offering it had horns at the four corners, which were of one piece with the Rest of the altar
Crucifixion - Whether the sufferer was also bound to the cross we do not know; but, to prevent the hands and feet being torn away by the weight of the body, which could not "rest upon nothing but four great wounds," there was, about the centre of the cross, a wooden projection strong enough to support, at least in part, a human body, which soon became a weight of agony
Music (2) - Several others are mentioned, but some are foreign, and the nature of the Rest is unknown
Mustard - The broad effect of the image is plain, that out of a speck of seed there was to come in due course marvellously great growth—a plant towering among the pulse and pot-herbs like a Titan, and with branching sprays on which the birds of the air find shelter and Rest
Law - The law of the avenger of involuntarily-shed blood (Deuteronomy 19:1-13; Numbers 35) mercifully Restrained the usage which was too universally recognized to admit of any but gradual abolition. Its preeminence is marked by its being the first part revealed; not like the Rest of the code through Moses, but by Jehovah Himself, with attendant angels (Deuteronomy 33:2; Acts 7:53; Galatians 3:19; Hebrews 2:2); written by God's finger, and on stone tables to mark its permanence. ...
The fourth commandment begins with "keep" instead of "remember," the reason for its observance in Deuteronomy is Israel's deliverance from Egypt instead of God's Resting from creation. The special reason for the fourth, applying to the Israelites, does not interfere with the earlier and more universal reason in Exodus, but is an additional motive for their observing the ordinance already Resting on the worldwide basis. The fourth and fifth have a positive form, the Rest negative. Augustine, to bring out the Trinity, made our first and second one, and divided our tenth into coveting the wife and coveting the Rest; thus, three in the first table, seven in the second. As (1) the Decalogue gave the moral tone to all the Rest of the law, so (2) the ceremonial part taught symbolically purity, as required by all true subjects of the kingdom of God
the Ten Virgins - All the Rest of its lessons, however good and however true, are subordinate to that. All the Rest is, more or less, the framework and the setting of that. Other lessons, more or less essential, more or less interesting, and more or less instructive, may be extracted out of this remarkable parable, but its supreme and commanding lesson is the richly rewarded wisdom of the five wise virgins. Not till it ceases pursuing you and says, Sleep on now, and take your Rest!...
Though it is literally true that this holy oil is to be had for the asking, at the same time, and as a matter of fact, what amounts to a tremendous price has to be paid down for it. And had it not been that they were, all the time, much wiser than they seemed to be, they would have been shut out with the Rest
Canaanites - " The Canaanites dwelt in the midst of all, and were surrounded by the Rest. We learn, also, from their history, that they were all ready, however diversified by their occupations or local interests, to join in a common cause; that they were well appointed for war, both offensive and defensive; that their towns were well fortified; that they were sufficiently furnished with military weapons and warlike chariots; that they were daring, obstinate, and almost invincible; and that they were not destitute of craft and policy. 1445, the sabbatical year beginning from the autumnal equinox; when he made a division of the land among the tribes of Israel, and Rested from his conquests. As God had commanded this people, long before, to be treated with rigour, see Deuteronomy 7:2 , Joshua extirpated great numbers, and obliged the Rest to fly, some of them into Africa, and others into Greece. " But it ought to satisfy us; at least this is the point upon which we ought to Rest and fix our attention; that it was for excessive, wilful, and forewarned wickedness, that all this befel them, and that it is all along so declared in the history which recites it. "...
In reading the Old Testament account, therefore, of the Jewish wars and conquests in Canaan, and the terrible destruction brought upon the inhabitants thereof, we are always to remember that we are reading the execution of a dreadful but just sentence, pronounced by Jehovah against the intolerable and incorrigible crimes of these nations; that they were intended to be made an example to the whole world of God's avenging wrath against sins, which, if they had been suffered to continue, might have polluted the whole ancient world, and which could only be checked by the signal and public overthrow of nations notoriously addicted to them, and so addicted as even to have incorporated them into their religion and their public institutions; and that the Israelites were mere instruments in the hands of a righteous Providence for effecting the extirpation of a people, of whom it was necessary to make a public example to the Rest of mankind; that this extermination, which might have been accomplished by a pestilence, by fire, by earthquakes, was appointed to be done by the hands of the Israelites, as being the clearest and most intelligible method of displaying the power and the righteousness of the God of Israel; his power over the pretended gods of other nations; and his righteous indignation against the crimes into which they were fallen
Joshua - When Eldad and Medad prophesied in the camp separately from the Rest of the 70 who received of the spirit that was upon Moses, in his presence, Joshua said, "my lord Moses, forbid them;" he replied, "enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord's people were prophets," etc. " God kept His promise, working mighty miracles in his behalf, and giving Israel all the land and Rest round about; no good thing failed which the Lord had spoken (Joshua 21:43-45). During his lifetime Israel came nearest to realizing the ideal of the people of God (Joshua 11:15; Joshua 24:31). His singular unselfishness herein appears; he who might have claimed the first and best is served the last, and with no extraordinary possession above the Rest. ...
A long time after Jehovah had given Rest unto Israel from all foes, Joshua, now old, convened all Israel (Joshua 23) represented by their heads, judges, and officers, to either Timhath Serah his home or Shiloh the sanctuary, and exhorted them to love and serve Jehovah ("be ye very courageous to do all that is written in the law, turn not aside to the right or to the left," Joshua 23:6; the same as God had enjoined Himself, Joshua 1:7), constrained by His past benefits, His promises of future help, and His threats of leaving the nations to be snares, scourges, and thorns to vex and destroy Israel in the event of apostasy. ...
A pious warrior, almost without blemish, one who learned to command in advanced age by obeying when a youth, ever looking up to Jehovah with childlike faith, worshipping with devout prostration the Captain of the Lord's host, dispensing kingdoms yet content at the last with a petty inheritance, as disinterested and unselfish as he was brave, generous, and patriotic
Feasts - So in their fixed home and land of Rest their enjoyment was enhanced by the thankful and holy remembrance of past wanderings without a fixed dwelling. " Meanwhile on earth Israel, long finding no ease or Rest for the sole of the foot, but having "trembling of heart, failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind" (Deuteronomy 28:65), shall at length Rest in her own land under Messiah reigning at Jerusalem as His holy capital and over the whole earth, and "everyone that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles" (Zechariah 14:9; Zechariah 14:16; Revelation 7)
no'ah - (rest ), the tenth in descent from Adam, in the line of Seth was the son of Lamech and grandson of Methuselah. The ark Rested on the seventeenth day of the seventh month on the mountains of Ararat. The traditions which come nearest to the biblical account are those of the nations of western Asia. Noah now for the Rest of his life betook himself to agricultural pursuits. When he recovered from the effects of his intoxication, he declared that a curse should Rest upon the sons of Ham

Noah now for the Rest of his life betook himself to agricultural pursuits. When he recovered from the effects of his intoxication, he declared that a curse should Rest upon the sons of Ham
Beatitudes - The recognition of Mary's blessedness by succeeding generations Rests in the Lord's selection of her as his mother and not in the morally superior accomplishment of her will. Their condition is certain: "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord they will Rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them" (14:13). Their blessedness is seen that in death God gives them Rest
Body of Christ - 23-24), contribution to make, and no member experiences humiliation or honor without somehow affecting the Rest (v. Robinson's more complex notion of corporate personality, which all but obliterates the sense of individuality in ancient Hebrew culture, should finally be laid to Rest
Lord's Day, the - Indeed, Paul has little interest in observing special days as sacred (Romans 14:5-6 ; Galatians 4:9-11 ; Colossians 2:16 ). The Epistle of Barnabas views the significance of the biblical Sabbath as being a symbol of the future Rest established at the return of Jesus (15:1-8; cf. In 321Constantine proclaimed Sunday to be official day of Rest in the Roman Empire (Codex Justinianus 3
Dropsy - ...
Like the story of the healing of the woman with the crooked spine, told in the preceding section, it furnishes a vivid illustration of the way in which the protracted controversy about the Sabbath Rest was conducted by Jesus against the Pharisaic sabbatarians of His time (cf. If they allowed a man to save his son or his ox from a position of imminent danger, and yet considered the Sabbath Rest unbroken, how much stronger claim had a man, suffering from an incurable malady, upon Him whose power to heal had again and again been manifested?...
It is possible, perhaps, to trace an element of scorn in Jesus’ attitude on this occasion
Vulgate, the - ...
Augustine, however, judged that one of them differed from the Rest in its clearness and fidelity, and it was distinguished by the name of Itala or Italic. It is probable that he completed the Rest of the New Testament in 385
Fire - ...
Here, therefore, let the faithful Rest. Speaking to the church concerning the unjust sufferings the people of God endure from the ungodly, he saith, "Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled Rest with us, when the Lord Jesus should be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power, when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe
Judaizing Christians - When, accordingly, Christ appeared in the humblest condition of life, and when, after the commencement of his ministry, he declared, that the hopes of empire which his countrymen had long cherished were fallacious, the predictions on which they had been Rested suggesting, when combined with other predictions, a very different view of the designs of the Almighty, they were filled with indignation, and the greater part of them, although they saw the miracles which Jesus wrought, and heard those appeals to their own Scriptures which, however eager to do so, they found themselves unable to confute, rejected his pretensions on account of the meanness of his situation, and reprobated him as a deceiver of the people. They regarded the two dispensations as forming one whole; and believed that the rites which had distinguished from the Rest of mankind those who belonged to the commonwealth of Israel, would in the same manner mark the disciples of the Messiah's kingdom. One of these tenets, one which, indeed, naturally followed from their conceptions Of the Gospel dispensation, was, that its author was merely a man raised solely by the commission with which he had been honoured above the Rest of his fellow creatures
Joshua, the Book of - Joshua after destroying the kings, so that Israel had Rest from war in the open field, divided generally the land; but this is quite consistent with the after statements that years passed before the process of division was completed and the allotments finally settled. ...
(3) Joshua was best qualified by his position to describe the events, and to collect the documents of this book; it was important that the statement of the allotments should Rest on such a decisive authority as Joshua
Reccared - The Rest of his reign was peaceful, except for some expeditions against the Romans and Basques. ...
The information for the Rest of Reccared's reign is most scanty. He Restored various properties, both ecclesiastical and private, confiscated by his father, and founded many churches and monasteries
Sabbath - The seventh day was hallowed at the close of the creation; its sanctity was afterward marked by the withholding of the manna on that day, and the provision of a double supply on the sixth, and that previous to the giving of the law from Sinai: it was then made a part of that great epitome of religious and moral duty, which God wrote with his own finger on tables of stone; it was a part of the public political law of the only people to whom almighty God ever made himself a political Head and Ruler; its observance is connected throughout the prophetic age with the highest promises, its violations with the severest maledictions; it was among the Jews in our Lord's time a day of solemn religious assembling, and was so observed by him; when changed to the first day of the week, it was the day on which the first Christians assembled; it was called, by way of eminence, "the Lord's day;" and we have inspired authority to say, that both under the Old and New Testament dispensations, it is used as an expressive type of the heavenly and eternal Rest. But, as the command is partly positive, and partly moral, it may have circumstances which are capable of being altered in perfect accordance with the moral principles on which it Rests, and the moral ends which it proposes. ...
We may therefore Rest well enough satisfied with this,—that as a Sabbath is obligatory upon us, we act under apostolic authority for observing it on the first day of the week, and thus commemorate at once the creation and the redemption of the world. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and Rested the seventh day; wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. " With respect to time, it is here mentioned in the same indefinite manner as at its primeval institution, nothing more being expressly required than to observe a day of sacred Rest after every six days of labour. The precept is not, Remember the seventh day of the week, to keep it holy, but, "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy;" and in the following explication of these expressions, it is not said that the seventh day of the week is the Sabbath, but without Restriction, "The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God;" not the seventh according to any particular method of computing the septenary cycle, but, in reference to the six before mentioned, every seventh day in rotation after six of labour. Lunar months and solar years are equally obvious to all rational creatures; so that the reason why time has been computed by days, months, and years, is readily given; but how the division of time into weeks of seven days, and this from the beginning, came to obtain universally among mankind, no man can account for, without having respect to some impressions on the minds of men from the constitution and law of nature, with the tradition of a sabbatical Rest from the foundation of the world. But the truth is, that the seventh day was set apart from the beginning as a day of Rest; and it was also strictly enjoined upon the Israelites in their law, both on the ground of its original institution, Exodus 20:8-11 , and also to commemorate their deliverance from the bondage of Egypt, Deuteronomy 5:15
Calendar, the Christian - The Jewish Christians already had their day of Rest on the Saturday. ...
Tertullian, however, is the first to mention a Sunday Rest (Apologet. He contrasts the Christian with the Jewish Rest by implication. ...
The Rest on the Lord’s day appears (especially until the time of Constantine) to have been mainly to allow of church-going. But in the edict of Constantine in 321, the magistrates and people in cities are bidden to Rest, and all workshops are directed to be closed ‘on the venerable day of the sun’; while no such obligation is laid on those engaged in agricultural pursuits. Konstitutionen; the Rest is not published]'>[11]. Wordsworth conjectures that the Restoration of these days in the East was largely due to Epiphanius (Min
Work - On the seventh day, God Rests from his work, celebrating his accomplishments. Interest was not to be charged on loans made to Israelites (Exodus 22:25 ; Deuteronomy 23:19-20 ). Exodus states that the Sabbath command is based on the pattern of divine work and Rest in Genesis (Exodus 20:8-11 ). The Israelites are thus to image God in their alternation of work and Rest. " The stress is more on Rest as redemption from the tyranny of work. Even animals and the land are to experience Rest from work. The seventh year is to be a time of Rest for the land and release of Israelite slaves (Exodus 23:10-12 ). A cycle of seven sabbatical years ends in the year of Jubilee, not only a time of Rest and liberty, but a time of debt cancellation and the return of property to its original owners (Leviticus 25 ). As such, Jesus, the new Adamthe divine image Restoredsets the standard for any human activity. ...
In order for human beings to be Restored to their rightful place as masters of the universe instead of its prisoners, individuals must trust in Jesus Christ, God's work, and not in themselves. Human beings are being Restored to the divine image in order to exercise dominion over the creation (Ephesians 4:23-24 ). A return to Eden has finally been accomplished, where the new Adams and Eves, crowned with glory and honor, are Restored finally to their rightful positions as kings and queens of the new creation, God's resplendent images, who will exercise dominion through service and love (22:1-5)
Peter - He was the first to confess and the first to deny his Lord and Saviour, yet he repented bitterly, and had no Rest and peace till the Lord forgave him
Zebulun - in mercantile and shipping enterprise; "and Issachar in thy tents"; both tribes should rejoice in their undertakings a broad and at home, in their work and in their Rest. Zebulun shall share in the final Restoration (1618091042_1; Ezekiel 48:33; Revelation 7:8)
Diligence, Diligent, Diligently - 2; it signifies "to hasten to do a thing, to exert oneself, endeavor, give diligence;" in Galatians 2:10 , of remembering the poor, AV, "was forward," RV, "was zealous;" in Ephesians 4:3 , of keeping the unity of the Spirit, AV "endeavoring," RV, "giving diligence;" in 1 Thessalonians 2:17 , of going to see friends, "endeavored;" in 2 Timothy 4:9 ; 4:21 , "do thy diligence;" in the following the RV uses the verb "to give diligence:" 2 Timothy 2:15 , AV, "study;" Titus 3:12 , AV, "be diligent;" Hebrews 4:11 , of keeping continuous Sabbath Rest, AV, "let us labor;" in 2 Peter 1:10 , of making our calling and election sure; in 2 Peter 1:15 , of enabling believers to call Scripture truth to remembrance, AV, "endeavour;" in 2 Peter 3:14 , of being found in peace without fault and blameless, when the Lord comes, AV, "be diligent
Place - (10) For Philippians 1:13 (AV, "in all other places"), RV, "to all the Rest," see PALACE
Hexapla - In order to this, he made choice of eight columns; in the first he made the Hebrew text, in Hebrew characters; in the second, the same text in Greek characters; the Rest were filled with the several versions above-mentioned; all the columns answering verse for verse, and phrase for phrase; and in the Psalms there was a ninth column for the seventh version
Fasting - This solemnity was a day of strict Rest and fasting to the Israelites
Epiphanes, a Gnostic Writer - From this Tetrad came all the Rest of the Aeons. Pearson's Restoration of the Greek has since been pretty nearly verified by the recovery of the passage as reproduced by Hippolytus (Ref
Psalms - The Rest are anonymous
Thorn - ...
(4) Dardar Genesis 3:18, "thistles"; Greek triboloi , Latin tribuli (Matthew 7:16); the Τribulus terrestris , or else Centsurea calcitrapa , "star thistle. The thorny ononis or "rest harrow" also abounds in Palestine. Science regards thorns as undeveloped branches (as in the hawthorn; but prickles as in the bramble and rose are only hardened hairs); a specimen of the arrest which the fall put on the development of what otherwise would have been good; powers for good turned to hurt through sin
Torment - Those who worship the Beast and his image shall be tormented with fire and brimstone; and the smoke of their torment shall ascend for ever and ever, there being no Rest for them day or night (Revelation 14:9-11)
Levites - ...
The tribe of Levi included at least three separate families: Gershon, Kohath and Merari (with the families of Moses and Aaron being treated somewhat separately from the Rest of the tribe of Gershon)
Redeemer - (See 1 Peter 1:18-19)...
But the great work of redemption did not Rest here
Abner - Probably for the first five years after the fatal battle of Gilboa David alone reigned in the old capital of Judah, Hebron; but the Rest of the country was in the Philistines' hands. Received favorably and feasted by David, after his wife Michal was taken from Phaltiel and Restored to him, Abner went forth from Hebron in peace
Couch - They were provided with cushions, such as are now in vogue, on which the left elbow could Rest, so as to leave the right arm free; and were often arranged around three sides of a table in the form of a parallelogram, the fourth side of which was left open for the convenience of those waiting on the guests
Dancing - Birthdays did not usually receive such notice, as they lacked the element of relief from danger, recompense and Rest after hardship, or the introduction of something new into the family conditions
Brethren - in this way leads over from the Gospels to the Rest of the NT, much of which is, however, chronologically earlier
Condemnation - Not only from the Gospels, but from the Rest of the Revised Version as well, the word ‘damnation’ disappears, ‘condemnation’ taking its place in Romans 3:6 and 1 Timothy 5:12, ‘destruction’ in 2 Peter 2:3, and ‘judgment’ in Romans 13:2 and 1 Corinthians 11:29
Philip the Evangelist - He like the Rest was chosen by the multitude of disciples as "full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom
Take - ) To assume; to adopt; to acquire, as shape; to permit to one's self; to indulge or engage in; to yield to; to have or feel; to enjoy or experience, as Rest, revenge, delight, shame; to form and adopt, as a resolution; - used in general senses, limited by a following complement, in many idiomatic phrases; as, to take a resolution; I take the liberty to say. ) To gain or secure the interest or affection of; to captivate; to engage; to interest; to charm
Touch - ) To come in contact with; to hit or strike lightly against; to extend the hand, foot, or the like, so as to reach or Rest on
Nakedness - The Rest of its appearances are scattered throughout the various periods of Old Testament literature with the notable exception of poetical literature
Companion - 11:9: “Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the Rest eat every one the flesh of another
Carry - Whose wills will carry it over the Rest
Sinai - The wilderness of Sinai, where the Israelites continued encamped almost a year, and where Moses erected the tabernacle of the covenant, is considerably elevated above the Rest of the country; the ascent to it is very craggy, the greater part cut out of the rock; then one comes to a large space of ground, which is a plain surrounded on all sides by rocks and eminences, whose length is nearly twelve miles. Catherine's, where it is thought the body of this saint Rested for three hundred and sixty years; but afterward it was removed into a church at the foot of the mountain
Altar - Like the altar of burnt offering it had horns at the four corners, which were of one piece with the Rest of the altar
Philippi - Philippi passed with the Rest of Macedonia to the Romans in b
Nehemi'ah - Nehemiah's great work was rebuilding, for the first time since their destruction by Nebuzar-adan, the walls of Jerusalem, and Restoring that city to its former state and dignity as a fortified town. On his very first arrival, as governor, Sanballat and Tobiah had given unequivocal proof of their mortification at his appointment; but when the Restoration was seen to be rapidly progressing, their indignation knew no bounds. With no less firmness and impartiality he expelled from all sacred functions those of the high priest's family who had contracted heathen marriages, and rebuked and punished those of the common people who had likewise intermarried with foreigners; and lastly, he provided for keeping holy the Sabbath day, which was shamefully profaned by many both Jews and foreign merchants, and by his resolute conduct succeeded in repressing the lawless traffic on the day of Rest
Paradise - But as the word itself is derived from the Hebrew or Chaldee, it signifies forest or garden of trees; and the same meaning is annexed to what Nehemiah useth for the king's forest, Nehemiah 2:8; and what Solomon saith, Ecclesiastes 2:5, about his gardens and orchards; and of the church it has the same meaning when Jesus commending her saith, "Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates"—that is, a very paradise. The voice John heard from heaven, commanding him to write "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord; from henceforth," that is, immediately, instantly, the bodies Rest from their labours, until the resurrection of the just, and then the solemn events Jesus speaks of will take place
Animals - Animals, like the Rest of the uNIVerse, are created by God. Thus the psalmist can say of God, "every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. Animals share some of the privileges of God's people, and so the Sabbath Rest applies equally to them: "Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may Rest" (Exodus 23:12 ; cf
Holy Day - It might be a day on which certain Restrictions were laid on individual liberty. Indeed, the original motive of the institution of the Jewish Sabbath, before its observance was overlaid with minute Rabbinical details, was not so much that the Israelite should Rest himself, as that he should give others Rest. It is interesting to note that St. It is His interest alone that is to be considered, and the weak brother is to be considered as one ‘for whom Christ died. They both are regarding the day ‘to the Lord,’ or with His interests in view (Romans 14:6). No one ought to pretend that the discipline of the Church, so far as it is expressed in the weekly day of Rest and worship, or in the observance of seasons or sacraments, is without significance for the Christian life
Death - Sheol appears inviting to a soul in distress because it is a realm of unconscious Rest ( Job 3:17 ff. ...
( c ) Other ideas of death as not terminating man’s existence and interests were, however, reached in later prophetic teaching, mainly through the thought of the worth of the individual, the significance of his conscious union with God, and of the covenant relations established by God with His people ( Jeremiah 31:1-40 ; cf. 1 5, with its treatment of the attitude of the ungodly towards death (‘Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die’), of the problem of the early, untimely death of the good, and of immortality in relation to the ungodly and the righteous; Sirach , in which no clear conception of immortality appears, the best that can be said, to alleviate sorrow for the dead, being that ‘the dead is at Rest’ ( Sir 38:23 ): in which also the fear of death is spoken of as besetting all ranks of men (40), and we are told who they are to whom death comes as a dread foe, and again who may welcome death as a friend (41). Compassion for the sorrows of those bereaved is the prime motive: in the case of Lazarus, it is expressly added that the Restoration was ‘for the glory of God’ ( John 11:4 ; John 11:40 ). This conception of death is, of course, to be limited to its relation to the activities and interests of this world. The Rest of the NT
Banquet - He was, says Plutarch, one chosen among the guests, the most pleasant and diverting in the company, that would not get drunk, and yet would drink freely; he was to rule over the Rest, to forbid any disorder, but to encourage their mirth. To do this effectually, he first proclaimed liberty to every one to drink what he thought proper, and then observing who among them was most ready to be disordered, mixed more water with his wine, to keep him equally sober with the Rest of the company; so that this officer took care that none should be forced to drink, and that none, though left to their own choice, should get intoxicated. The existence of such an officer among the Jews is placed beyond a doubt, by a passage in the apocryphal book of Ecclesiasticus, where his office is thus described: "If thou be made the master of a feast, lift not thyself up, but be among them as one of the Rest; take diligent care of them, and so sit down
Joshua, the Book of - The complete Rest is still incomplete (Joshua 13:1-7 ). God's Rest, commandments, and blessing unify His people (Joshua 22:1-6 )
Manasseh - ’ He thus brings it into relation with the story of Jacob’s wrestling with the angel ( Genesis 32:1-32 ). Like the Rest of the tribes, they ‘were not able to drive out the Canaanites. ’ When they made their complaint to Joshua ( Joshua 17:14-18 ) that they were too cramped in their abode to better themselves, he sententiously replied that being a great people as they boasted, they could clear out the mountain forests and develop in that way, and so ultimately get the upper hand of the Canaanites in the plains. It should be said that the names of the Rest of the sons of Manasseh, Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher, Shemida, as well as the five daughters of Zelophehad, the great-grandson of Machir, are probably all place-names, as some of them certainly are, and not personal names. In Restoring the old altars he doubtless thought he was returning to the early religion of the nation, and the Baal whom he worshipped was probably identified in the minds of the people with the national God Jahweh
Number - The 1,290 (Daniel 12:11-12) and 1,335 days correspond to 1290, during which Antiochus Epiphanes profaned the temple, from the month Ijar, 145th year of the era of the Seleucidae, to Judas Maccabeus' Restoration of worship, the 25th day of the ninth month Chisleu, 148th year (1 Maccabees 1:54; 1 Maccabees 4:52-56); in 45 days more Antiochus died, ending the Jews' calamities; in all 1,335. Evidently these numbers symbolize the long "Gentile times" from the overthrow of Judah's kingdom by Babylon, and of Jerusalem by Titus, down to the Restoration of the theocracy in Him "whose right it is" (Ezekiel 21:27). The 42 months answer to Israel's 42 sojournings in the desert (Numbers 33:1-50), contrasted with the sabbatic Rest of Canaan. Seven represents "rest and release from toil", also "a divine work", in judgment or mercy or revelation (Genesis 4:24; Genesis 41:3; Genesis 41:7; Matthew 18:22; Exodus 7:25)
Heart - From their viewpoint the heart was the central organ that moved the Rest of the body. ...
The emotional state of the heart affects the Rest of a person: "A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit" (Proverbs 15:13 ); "a cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones" (17:22)
Rock - ...
Psalm 27:5 (a) Whenever David was in trouble he turned to the Lord for security, safety and Rest. ...
Isaiah 32:2 (a) This describes the sweet, Restful experience of the child of GOD who retires from his busy life, the cares of the home, the distress of business, to Rest in the Lord, and to enjoy His fellowship. It represents a church group which resists the teaching of the Word of GOD, has no interest in the Son of GOD, and will not listen to the Spirit of GOD. ...
Matthew 7:24 (b) Here we see a type of CHRIST JESUS, the foundation stone for every true believer, a Resting place for those who build for eternity
Millennium - 4thly, That the saints, during this period, shall enjoy all the delights of a terrestrial paradise. But the Rest of the dead lived not again till the thousand years were finished. The inhabitants of every place will Rest secure from fear of robbery and murder. Kings, nobles, magistrates, and rulers in churches shall act with principle, and be forward to promote the best interests of men: tyranny, oppression, persecution, bigotry, and cruelty, shall cease. Trades and manufactories will be carried on with a design to promote the general good of mankind, and not with selfish interests, as now
Epicureans - By the action of air, agitated by heat from the heavenly bodies, upon the mixed mass of the earth, its smoother and lighter particles were separated from the Rest, and water was produced, which naturally flowed into the lowest places. Of pleasures there are two kinds; one consisting in a state of Rest, in which both body and mind are free from pain; the other arising from an agreeable agitation of the senses, producing a correspondent emotion in the soul
Gods - Thus leeks and onions were deities in Egypt; the Sclavi, Lithuanians, Celtae, Vandals, and Peruvians, adored trees and forests; the ancient Gauls, Britons, and Druids, paid a particular devotion to the oak; and it was no other than wheat, corn, seed, &c, that the ancients adored under the names of Ceres and Proserpina. ) Among birds, the stork, raven, sparrow hawk, ibis, eagle, grisson, and lapwing have had divine honours; the last in Mexico, the Rest in Egypt and at Thebes. ) Not men only, but every thing that relates to man, has also been deified; as labour, Rest, sleep, youth, age, death, virtues, vices, occasion, time, place, numbers, among the Pythagoreans; the generative power, under the name of Priapus
Priest - Al the Rest of the family of Kohath, even the children of Moses and their descendants remained among the Levites. In the peace offerings, they had the shoulder and the breast, Leviticus 7:33,34 ; in the sin offering, they burnt on the altar the fat that covers the bowels, the liver, and the kidneys; the Rest belonged to themselves, Leviticus 7:6,10
Joshua, Book of - God said the whole was accursed and must be destroyed, and a curse should Rest upon the man who should rebuild the city. " They had Rest, and not any good thing that Jehovah had promised failed them
Syria - But there was a special, and a still prevalent, usage, wherein Syria was Restricted to that part of the wider area which lies N. The Rest of ancient Syria was to be found partly in the territories of numerous free cities, and partly in petty principalities subject to Rome, while Commagene had become an independent kingdom before the time of Pompey’s conquest
Servant of the Lord - While the Rest of the people rebelled against God, the believing remnant kept serving him loyally (Isaiah 49:4-6; see REMNANT). God punished Israel for its sins by sending the nation into captivity in Babylon, but after the removal of sin he Restored the nation to its land
Meat - Μinchah then was Restricted to the unbloody offering, zebach to the "bloody sacrifice". ...
The Rest as a most holy thing was to be eaten in the holy place by the priests alone as the mediators between Jehovah and the people
Nehemiah, the Book of - The "we" and "our" in Nehemiah 9 and Nehemiah 10, as to sealing the covenant, identifies the writer as an eye witness, yet not singled out for notice from the Rest. Peculiar to Nehemiah are certain words and meanings: sabar , "to view" (Nehemiah 2:13; Nehemiah 2:15); meah , "the hundredth part" interest (Nehemiah 5:11); guwph (hiphil ), "shut" (Nehemiah 7:3); moal , "lifting up" (Nehemiah 8:6); miqerah , "read" (Nehemiah 8:8); huyedot , "psalms of thanksgiving" (Nehemiah 12:8); tahalukaah , "procession" (Nehemiah 12:31); otsrah (Nehemiah 13:13), "treasurers
Nineveh - Three ruined temples, built and Restored by many kings in different ages. A palace of another ruler, Restored by Sennacherib and Esar-haddon. The city walls built by the latter king and Restored by Assur-bani-pal. Thy worthies are at Rest; thy people are scattered upon the mountains, and there is none to gather them
Desert - Jesus took His disciples there to Rest (Mark 6:31 )
Priesthood of the Believer - The great veil in the Temple which separated the holy of holies from the Rest of the sanctuary was torn asunder from the top to the bottom, suggesting that God Himself opened up the direct access to the holy of holies through the death of Christ
Heir - ) The Mosaic law enforced a strict entail; the property was divided among the sons, the oldest receiving a double portion (the father not having the right, as the patriarchs had, of giving a special portion to a favorite son: Genesis 48:22), the Rest equal shares (Deuteronomy 21:17). The office then devolved on the nearest kinsman (Ruth 2:20; Ruth 3:9-13; Ruth 4:1-12). Jeremiah 32:6-9; Elimelech's nearest kinsman would not exercise his right of redemption, lest he should mar his own inheritance; namely, if he should have but one son by her, that son would be Elimelech's legal son, not his; so the succession of his own name would be endangered
Parents - They should go to Rest soon, and rise early; and, above all, should, if possible, be inspired with a love of cleanliness. Nothing can be more criminal than the conduct of some parents in the inferior classes of the community, who never Restrain the desires and passions of their children, suffer them to live in idleness, dishonesty, and profanation of the Lord's day, the consequence of which is often an ignominious end. Though a parent has a right over his children, yet he is not to be a domestic tyrant, consulting his own will and passions in preference to their interest. Nor have parents any right to sell their children into slavery; to shut up daughters and younger sons in nunneries and monasteries, in order to preserve entire the estate and dignity of the family; or to use any arts, either of kindness or unkindness, to induce them to make choice of this way of life themselves; or in countries where the clergy are prohibited from marriage, to put sons into the church for the same end, who are never likely to do or receive any good in it sufficient to compensate for this sacrifice; nor to urge children to marriages from which they are averse, with the view of exalting or enriching the family, or for the sake of connecting estates, parties, or interests; nor to oppose a marriage in which the child would probably find his happiness, from a motive of pride or avarice, of family hostility or personal pique
Logos - Wisdom (sophia) was preexistent, God's first creation, His instrument and agent in all the Rest of creation
Lord's Day - Sunday was officially declared a day of Rest
James - Like the Rest of the Lord’s brethren, James did not believe in Him while He lived, but acknowledged His claims after the Resurrection
Sleep - Death comes attended by blessedness and Rest (Revelation 14:13 ) and a conscious sense of the presence of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:8 )
Gift - True, He gave, and gives His disciples, the unfathomable gift of a Peace which the world could not give (John 14:27), a Rest for all weary spirits (Matthew 11:28)
Atone - Some of the blood was put on the horns of the altar and the Rest of the blood was poured at the base of the altar of burnt offering. It refers to a slab of gold that Rested on top of the ark of the covenant
Consolation - παράκλησις, however, is a word of common occurrence in the Rest of the NT, where in Authorized Version it is usually rendered ‘consolation,’ although not infrequently ‘comfort. Amid the storms of this changeful life we cry: ‘Carest thou not that we perish?’ (Mark 4:38),—and nevertheless the very purpose of His mission was and is that we should have life, and have it more abundantly (John 10:10)
Hesychius (25), Presbyter of Jerusalem - " He was ordained presbyter against his will by the patriarch of Jerusalem, and spent the Rest of his life there or at other sacred places
Fig - In Matthew 21:19 it is "one fig tree," standing out an exception to all the Rest
Faithfulness - Their ways are established and His blessing Rests on them: “A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent” ( Rest; confidence; faith”)
Lord's Supper - The clergy had a part of what was left for their maintenance; and the Rest furnished the repast called αγαπη , or love-feast, which immediately followed the celebration of the Lord's Supper, and of which all the communicants, both rich and poor, partook
Hexapla - In order to this he made choice of eight columns: in the first he gave the Hebrew text in Hebrew characters; in the second, the same text in Greek characters: the Rest were filled with the several versions above mentioned; all the columns answering verse for verse, and phrase for phrase; and in the Psalms there was a ninth column for the seventh version
Pre-Existence of Jesus Christ - If Jesus Christ had nothing in common, like the Rest of mankind except a body, how could this semi-conformity make him a real man?...
4. This is the usual fate of similar speculations, and shows the wisdom of Resting in the plain interpretation of the word of God
Calvary - This, as well as the Rest of the sepulchre, is now faced with marble: partly from the false taste which prevailed in the early ages of Christianity, in disguising with profuse and ill-suited embellishments the spots rendered memorable in the history of its Founder; and partly, perhaps, to preserve it from the depredations of the visitants
Meals - As several guests reclined on the same couch, each overlapped his neighbor, as it were, and Rested his head on or near the breast of the one who lay behind him; he was then said to "lean on the bosom" of his neighbor. The places of the guests were settled according to their respective rand, (Genesis 43:33 ; Mark 12:39 ) portions of food were placed before each, (1 Samuel 1:4 ) the most honored guests receiving either larger, (Genesis 43:34 ) or more choice, (1 Samuel 9:24 ) portions than the Rest
Asleep, Sleep - ...
Note: "This metaphorical use of the word sleep is appropriate, because of the similarity in appearance between a sleeping body and a dead body; Restfulness and peace normally characterize both. ...
"The early Christians adopted the word koimeterion (which was used by the Greeks of a Rest-house for strangers) for the place of interment of the bodies of their departed; thence the English word 'cemetery,' 'the sleeping place,' is derived
Passover - The paschal lamb therefore prefigured the offering of the spotless Son of God, the appointed propitiation for the sins of the whole world; by virtue of which, when received by faith, we are delivered from the bondage of guilt and misery; and nourished with strength for our heavenly journey to that land of Rest, of which Canaan, as early as the days of Abraham, became the divinely instituted figure
Captivity - Twenty years later, Shalmaneser carried away the Rest of Israel, the northern kingdom, 2 Kings 17:6, and located them in distant cities, many of them probably not far from the Caspian Sea; and their place was supplied by colonies from Babylon and Persia. , which are variously interpreted to mean a past or a future return, a physical or a spiritual Restoration, there is no evidence that the ten tribes as a body ever returned to Palestine
Province - At the same time the Emperor retained financial interests even in senatorial provinces. All the Rest of the Roman world outside Italy, namely, three-fourths of the whole, was made up of Imperial provinces, including the following: Egypt (where the Emperors, as successors of the Ptolemys, ruled as kings), Judæa, Syria-Cilicia-Phœnice, Galatia (established b
Miracles - It is as easy for him to continue the ordinary course of the Rest, with the change of one part, as of all the phenomena without any change at all
Mourning - Among them are weeping and wailing of an intentionally demonstrative and unrestrained kind, the rending of garments, the wearing of sackcloth, the sprinkling of dust and ashes on the head, the striking of breast and head, fasting, ejaculations of woe, the recital of elegies for the departed. The believer had no need to sorrow as did the Rest that had no hope
Paradise (2) - The strength of Israel was religious, and the word ‘Paradise’ became on her lips Restricted to the great garden where God at the first had talked with man. ’...
It is not without interest to observe that in later times and outside Scripture the word seems in two directions to take a downward slant; first, among Mohammedans as applied to their carnal heaven, and afterwards in the Mediaeval Church as indicating a place (the Limbus Patrum) reserved for departed souls who are only in partial and imperfect communion with the faithful. ...
Our Lord’s solitary use of the word constitutes by far its greatest interest to Christians. He was writhing in thirst and agony, and the simple, common, current idea of Paradise, with its Rest and relief, was to him, for the time being, the chiefest good
Luke, Gospel According to - The Markan narrative, containing the Rest of the Galilæan ministry, the charge to the Twelve, the Transfiguration, etc. we must probably separate Luke 1:5 to Luke 2:52 from the Rest. For the Rest of the matter peculiar to Lk. The writer’s style and interests The Third Evangelist is at once the most literary and the most versatile of the four. The same thing is seen in Acts, where the early chapters have a strong Aramaic tinge which is absent from the Rest. The author’s interests are many his sympathy with women, his ‘domestic tone’ shown by the social scenes which he describes, his medical language and descriptions of cures (a large number of technical phrases used by Greek medical writers and by Luke have been collected), and his frequent references to angels, are clearly marked in both books. ]'>[18] and Acts 11:1 the more Restricted sense is probable), and insists on the universality of the Gospel (see § 3 ). An Interesting detail which shows the readers to whom the book is addressed is pointed out by Sir Wm
Kings, Books of - From our point of view there is reason to think that the reign of Manasseh was quite as interesting and quite as important as the other. Whether these two may not have been embodied in a general work on the Lives of the Prophets, whence the sections which interested him were taken by our author, we may not be able to determine. He used his freedom according to his main purpose, taking out what suited that purpose and leaving the Rest behind. For those who were interested in the history as history he gave references to the books in which the history could be found. … And the Rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat and the mighty deeds which he did are they not written in the Book of Annals of the kings of Judah?… And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David, and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead’ ( 1 Kings 22:41-43 ; 1 Kings 22:45 ; 1 Kings 22:50 ). The first part of this formula is found at the beginning of a reign, the Rest at the end. These items he was interested in, just because his work would not have been a history without them. But what most interested him was the judgment which he felt justified in pronouncing on the character of the monarch. … And the Rest of the affairs of Baasha, and what he did, and his power, are they not written in the Book of Annals of the kings of Israel? And Baasha slept with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah, and Elah his son reigned in his stead’ (1 Kings 15:33 f
Jonathan - Jonathan, as being the elder man, had for long been looking and longing for a soul like David's soul to which his own soul might be knit; and before the sun set that day the son of Saul had found in the son of Jesse a soul after his own soul, and he was at Rest. And every true comradeship, every true courtship, every true espousalship, every true married life is the divine recovery and reunion of twin-soul to twin-soul, as all human souls were in the great beginning, and will for ever be in God and in God's house of love and Rest and satisfaction. And had Plato read Hebrew, how he would have hailed Jonathan and David as another example of two long-lost and disconsolate souls, finding Rest in their primogenial, spousal, re-knit, and never-again-to-be-separated soul. A woman cannot find Rest but in the house of her husband
Flood, the - The stories nearest to the area of the dispersion at Babel are the closest in detail to the biblical account. The use of the genealogical term toledot [6:9) as throughout Genesis (13 times, structuring the whole book), indicates that the author intended this narrative to be as historically veracious as the Rest of Genesis. Of the two first positions, the limited flood theories Rest primarily on scientific arguments that set forth seemingly difficult physical problems for a universal flood. ...
The theology of the flood is the pivot of a connected but multifaceted universal theme running through Genesis 1-11 and the whole Rest of Scripture: creation, and the character of the Creator, in his original purpose for creation; uncreation, in humankind's turning from the Creator, the universal spread of sin, ending in universal eschatological judgment; and re-creation, in the eschatological salvation of the faithful remnant and the universal renewal of the earth
Genesis, Theology of - This relates to how the Rest of the Old Testament looks back to Genesis and draws upon its theology. ...
When one investigates how the Rest of the Old Testament uses Genesis, one is struck by how little direct reflection on that book exists. ...
The limited nature of theological reflection on Genesis in the Rest of the Old Testament is meaningful, however, as it points again to the fact that the message of Genesis was originally a message for Israel in Egypt. His case for justification by grace through faith to a great degree Rests upon the story of Abraham and in particular on Genesis 15:6 , which records that Abraham believed God and that God reckoned his faith as righteousness
the Blind Leaders of the Blind - ' But instead of the timidity and the Restraint the disciples would have had their Master observe to those men of such power, He all the more went on with some of the most plain-spoken words He ever uttered. The seventh of Mark, as well as the seventh of Romans, and the Pilgrim's Progress, and John Owen, and all the Rest of that great heart-searching kind, all make me glad, and for these reasons: First, because I gather from them that some who feared God were in this valley as well as myself. Second, for that I see that God was with them, though in that dark and dismal state, and why not with me? And, third, that I shall have them for my company all the Rest of my way. And I warn Him, and I take all you people for witnesses, that I will give Him no Rest till my heart is as clean and as whole as His own
Claims (of Christ) - But moral authority, like all other forms of authority, must Rest upon a power that lies behind. But our Lord’s claim to authority Rested upon an underlying claim to holiness—a claim which His hearers and disciples were in a position to verify for themselves. ), by never making confession of sin in His own prayers, though enjoining it upon His disciples (Matthew 6:12 ||), by never even joining with His disciples in common prayers, of which confession would necessarily form an element (on this point see Forrest, Christ of History and of Experience, p. Matthew’s account as the ground of the Saviour’s universal invitation and of His promise of Rest for the soul (Luke 10:28 ff. John 5:22), and is confirmed by the fact that throughout the Rest of the NT the office of the final Judge is constantly assigned to Jesus (Acts 10:42; Acts 17:31, Romans 2:16; Romans 14:10, 2 Corinthians 5:10, 2 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 4:8; 1 Peter 4:5, James 5:8-9), an office, be it noted, which was never ascribed to the Messiah either in the OT revelation or in the popular Jewish belief (see Salmond, Christian Doct. ; Forrest, Christ of History and of Experience, Lect. of Immortality, 313–325; Robbins, A Christian Apologetic (1902), 59–87; Forrest, Authority of Christ (1906)
the Thorn in Paul's Flesh - And then all that leads us up to this magnificent resolve of the Apostle-"Most gladly, therefore, will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may Rest upon me. A thousand years of the most splitting headaches would not have laid you so low and so helpless; they would not have so taken the blood out of your cheeks, and so broken off all your interest and stake in life, and so cast you on your knees continually, as this thing has done that you point at so mysteriously, but with such evident assurance that you yourself have fallen into the same hedge of thorns with Paul. Oh, no! you smile at our innocence, and say to us: Don't you see that the grace and the strength of Christ are not prescribed anywhere else in Holy Scripture for epilepsy or ophthalmia? Luke was there with his balsams, and with his changes of air, and with his Rests in a desert place, for all these ailments of the Apostle. For no sooner did the inward bleeding begin in Paul; no sooner did he begin to lose his night's Rest because of the pain; no sooner did his heart begin to sink within him, than he fell to praying with all his well-known importunity that this whole thorn of his might be immediately taken away. And Paul, a much stronger and a much less excitable man, said after he got his answer, and said it more and more all his days: 'Lord, not in one part of my flesh only, but plant those soul-saving thorns of Thine in all the still sinful parts of my body and my mind, in order that the power of Christ may Rest upon me
Man - “Man” is distinguished from the Rest of the creation insofar as he was created by a special and immediate act of God: he alone was created in the image of God ( Rest of the earthly creation and was promised an even higher position (eternal life) if he obeyed God: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” ( Rest of the creation. Restoration to his proper place in the creation and relationship to the Creator comes only through spiritual union with the Christ, the second Adam ( Priest - All the Rest of the family of Kohath, even the children of Moses and their descendants, remained of the order of mere Levites. The Rest of the blood he sprinkled in part upon the bottom of the altar, and a part he mingled with the consecrated oil, and sprinkled on the priests and their garments. The first-born of impure animals were redeemed or exchanged, but the clean animals were not redeemed; they were sacrificed to the Lord, their blood was sprinkled about the altar, and all the Rest belonged to the priest, Numbers 18:17-19
Simon Maccabaeus - This would be a most interesting and important fact, if we were certain of its being true; but Eusebius contradicts himself in his account of Simon Magus going to Rome; and later writers have so embellished the story of this meeting, and made the death of Simon so astonishingly miraculous, that criticism is at a loss to know what to believe. Later writers have increased the blasphemy of this doctrine, and said that Simon declared himself to the Samaritans as the Father, to the Jews as the Son, and to the Rest of the world as the Holy Ghost. He gave himself out as "the great power of God," that is, a person in whom divine power resided: and, after he had heard the Apostles, he seems to have so far enlarged his doctrine, as to have said, that the God whose minister he was, and who had always been worshipped in Samaria, had revealed himself to the Jews by his Son, and to the Rest of the world by the Holy Ghost. To this he added, that the Holy Ghost, by which God was revealed to the Gentiles, resided in himself: and this I take to be the real origin of the story, that he was the God who revealed himself as the Father to the Samaritans, as the Son to the Jews, and as the Holy Ghost to the Rest of the world
Psalms - In placing the Psalms, together with the Rest of the Writings, before the (‘Latter’) Prophets, the EV Court Systems - Israel then went to war against the whole tribe of Benjamin, defeated them, and vowed not to let them intermarry with the Rest of the tribes. ...
The relationship of the king's court to the Rest of the judicial system is uncertain. The Shunammite widow successfully appealed to the king of Israel for the Restoration of her house and land, which she had abandoned during a time of famine (2 Kings 8:1-6 ). The courts worked together with the people to Restore the community to peace and wholeness under God whenever they recognized the one in the right and imposed an appropriate penalty on the guilty one
Mission - There should not therefore be an emphasis on one class of people to the neglect of the Rest (Acts 16:14; Acts 17:4; Acts 17:12; Acts 18:3; Acts 18:7-8; 1 Corinthians 1:26; 2 Corinthians 8:1-2; Ephesians 2:14-15; 1 Timothy 6:1-2; 1 Timothy 6:17). Nor should there be an emphasis on one sort of proclamation to the neglect of the Rest (1 Corinthians 9:22)
Issachar - ...
Jacob prophetically describes the tribe, "Israel is a strong donkey crouching down between two burdens (the cattle pens or sheepfolds, Speaker's Commentary; 'the hurdles,' Keil; found only in Judges 5:16); and he saw that Rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant (slave) unto tribute" (Genesis 49:14-15), namely, unto the tribute imposed by the various invaders attracted to his land by the abundant crops. , not merely Zebulun was to be noted for "going out" in maritime traffic and Issachar for nomad life" in tents," and grazing, and agriculture; but, according to poetical parallelism, the whole is meant of both tribes, Rejoice Zebulun and Issachar in your labour and your Rest, in your undertakings at home and abroad, both alike successful. " But Issachar shall again come forth with his 12,000 sealed ones, when the Lord shall Restore again the kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6; Revelation 7:7; Revelation 14:1)
Inheritance - As might easily be inferred, from the historical circumstances of Israel’s evolution, the words became largely Restricted to the holding of land, obviously the most important of all kinds of property among a pastoral or agricultural people. ( a ) The firstborn son , as the new head of the family, responsible for providing for the Rest, inherited the land and had also his claim to a double portion of other kinds of wealth ( Deuteronomy 21:17 ). The provision for the daughter was an innovation, as the context shows, but the Rest of the rule is in harmony with the ancient laws of kinship. The more ardent spirits of the nation refused, however, to believe that these high privileges were permanently abrogated; they were only temporarily withdrawn; and they looked forward to a new covenant whose spiritual efficacy should be guaranteed by national Restoration. The idea of a Restored inheritance suggested at once the glorious anticipations of the Messianic age, when the people, not by works which they had done, but by Jehovah’s grace, should recover that which they had lost; and renew the covenant that had been broken. It was, moreover, through the humanity which He Restored that the Son proved and realized His heirship of all things; and thus His actual position is the potential exaltation of redeemed mankind
Number Systems And Number Symbolism - The sabbath was that day of Rest following the work week, reflective of God's Rest (Genesis 1:1-2:4 ). Seventy-two elders, when one includes Eldad and Medad, were given a portion of God's spirit that Rested on Moses, and they prophesied (Numbers 11:24-26 )
Old - Golden - He was so flattered by being given this position that he decided he should be better than all the Rest of the kingdoms, and so in the next chapter, Daniel 3:1, he made an image that was all of gold. GOD revealed to him that in the sight of the Lord he was neither the head of gold, nor the Rest of the body of gold
Delight - This pleasure points to a distinct anointing and blessing that Rest upon Jesus. God's peace Rests upon those in whom he delights (Luke 2:14 ), and God works in those destined for salvation according to his good pleasure (Philippians 2:13 )
Theophilanthropists - Rest firmly attached to them, without attacking or defending any religious system; and remember, that similar discussions have never produced good, and that they have often tinged the earth with the blood of men
Palm (of Hand) - 8:9 (first biblical appearance): “But the dove found no Rest for the sole of her foot …” (cf. First, it is used of a thigh joint: “And when he [2] saw that he prevailed not against him [3], he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him” ( Funeral, Rites - In the funeral procession the exorcist walks first, carrying the holy water; next the cross bearer; afterwards the Rest of the clergy; and, last of all, the officiating priest
Gibeon - ...
Soon after the death of Absalom and David's Restoration to his throne his kingdom was visited by a grievous famine, which was found to be a punishment for Saul's violation (2 Samuel 21:2,5 ) of the covenant with the Gibeonites (Joshua 9:3-27 ). ) and the five sons of Michal, and these the Gibeonites took and hanged or crucified "in the hill before the Lord" (2 Samuel 21:9 ); and there the bodies hung for six months (21:10), and all the while Rizpah watched over the blackening corpses and "suffered neither the birds of the air to Rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night
Micaiah - Consulted by Ahab at Jehoshaphat's request when undertaking the joint expedition against Ramoth Gilead, which Benhadad had engaged to Restore (1 Kings 20:34). "...
So all the Rest said, "go up and prosper. Ironically and in parody he repeated at first their parrot-like cry, "go and prosper," to show Ahab how easy such prophesying is if worldly interest were one's aim
Beast - Symbolically, man severed from God and Resting on his own physical or intellectual strength, or material resources, is beastly and brutish. He commanded that they should be given the sabbath Rest
Rock (2) - Peter, in showing himself a man of faith, is a specimen of the believing ones who shall constitute the strong foundation on which the Church is to Rest
Dispensation - In the millennium, national Israel will be Restored. Dispensationalists see the rapture taking place in Revelation 4:1 and the Rest of the book ( Revelation 4-18 ) dealing with the seven years of tribulation
Troas - The Troad had a romantic interest for the Romans as the traditional motherland of their race, and the honours which they lavished upon the city were the expression of a kind of filial devotion. To Troas he came again, after his flight from Ephesus (Acts 20:1-6), ‘for the gospel of Christ,’ eager to preach to willing hearers, yet Restlessly preoccupied by thoughts of Corinth, and soon compelled to turn his back upon ‘an open door’ (2 Corinthians 2:12-13). On the Monday morning his companions went on board to Rest, but the wakeful Apostle discovered that he could give a few more hours to Troas, take the short overland route-doubtless not on foot, if Christian courtesy and gratitude meant anything-to Assos, 20 miles distant, and there catch his ship after she had rounded Cape Lectum
Pentateuch - In other places the same Samaritan copy adds what is deficient in the Hebrew; and what is contained more than the Hebrew seems so well connected with the Rest of the discourse, that it would be difficult to separate them. Add what he says concerning the ark of Noah, of its construction, of the place where it Rested, of the wood wherewith it was built, of the bitumen of Babylon, &c
Patriarchs - ) imagines that the bishops who enjoyed a certain degree of pre-eminence over the Rest of their order, were distinguished by the Jewish title of patriarchs in the fourth century
Saints - In reply, it is argued that the textual evidence of Manuscripts and Versions is exactly the same for this passage as for the Rest of the First Gospel
Fall - As if this image of the invisible God became the only foundation for creation to Rest upon, and the only power to preserve and keep the whole together. ...
Blessed be He that, by his great undertaking, hath Restored our poor nature from the ruins of the fall, and by uniting his church, which is his body, to himself, hath given to us a better righteousness than man had before
Sojourn, Dwell - The ger also enjoyed the Sabbath Rest ( Dionysius (19), Monk in Western Church - The Laodicean, unlike the Rest, are given in an abbreviated form, and the chronological order is interrupted to place the Nicene canons first
Light - ) To descend from flight, and Rest, perch, or settle, as a bird or insect
Leb'Anon, - Lebanon also abounds in olives, figs and mulberries; while some remnants exist of the forests of pine, oak and cedar which formerly covered it. The Rest of the ridge averages about 5000 feet; it is in general bleak and barren, with shelving gray declivities, gray cliffs and gray rounded summits. Here and there we meet with thin forests of dwarf oak and juniper
Eating - They take care that, after meals, there shall be a piece of bread remaining on the table; the master of the house orders a glass to be washed, fills it with wine, and, elevating it, says," Let us bless Him of whose benefits we have been partaking:" the Rest answer, "Blessed be He who has heaped his favours on us, and by his goodness has now fed us. " Then he recites a pretty long prayer, wherein he thanks God for his many benefits vouchsafed to Israel; beseeches him to pity Jerusalem and his temple, to Restore the throne of David, to send Elias and the Messiah, to deliver them out of their long captivity, &c
Asa - The Lord gave them peace; and, according to the Chronicles, the kingdom of Judah had Rest till the thirty-fifth year of Asa
Vine - The vine is a common name or genus, including several species under it; and Moses, to distinguish the true vine, or that from which wine is mode, from the Rest, calls it, the wine vine, Numbers 6:4
Light - ) To descend from flight, and Rest, perch, or settle, as a bird or insect
Wine - This appears to have been kept separate from the Rest of the juice, and to have formed the "new" or "sweet wine" noticed in Acts 2:13
Feasts - God appointed several festivals, or days of Rest and worship, among the Jews, to perpetuate the memory of great events wrought in favor of them: the Sabbath commemorated the creation of the world; the Passover, the departure out of Egypt; the Pentecost, the law given at Sinai, etc
Descent Into Hades - We may hope for fresh light on the point from further research, and for the present may Rest content with the interpretation which enables us to quote these passages in 1 Peter
Obedience - For while inferiors have many duties towards their superiors, amongst the Rest there is one duty in particular, that they are required to obey their commandments
Lord's Day - John 20:26, with its ‘after eight days’ (the octave), is specially interesting, for it has the faint suggestion of a custom-germ, or reflects the early-established practice of a weekly meeting on that day. The tradition that the Lord rose again on the first day of the week naturally invested that day with special interest. At the same time the parallelism in such use among Jews, Christians, and pagans is a matter of some interest. We have an interesting memorial of this primitive double observance in the Lat. Paul was opposed to the introduction of OT festivals (including the Sabbath) into the churches he founded among the Gentiles, ‘declaring that by the adoption of them the Gentile believer forfeited the benefits of the gospel, since he chose to Rest his salvation upon rites instead of upon Christ (Colossians 2:16; cf. Between the 11th and the 15th centuries we meet with a wide-spread fiction of a ‘Letter from Heaven’ inculcating Sunday observance, wherein the largest claims are made for the day: how that on it the angels were created, the ark Rested on Ararat, the Exodus took place, also the Baptism of Jesus, His great miracles. For the Rest it may be questioned whether social conditions made it practicable. [5]) Christians are exhorted to keep Sabbath ‘after a spiritual manner, rejoicing in meditation on the Law’; and abstention from work in expressly discountenanced, while Rest from labour is not demanded for the observance of the Lord’s Day. Later on the practice of using Sunday as a day of Rest from work came into vogue; and then it served as a sign distinguishing Christian from Jew. An interesting account of Sunday worship of Christians at Jerusalem in the 4th cent. Others who may be uninfluenced by specific religious considerations, and for whom the very term ‘Lord’s Day’ may have no significance, may yet very well recognize the value of the underlying natural principle of the ‘day of Rest. ’...
(b) Again, the persistence, or survival, of the pre-Christian and pagan designation ‘Sunday’ is a matter of interest, especially since, being tacitly denuded of its ancient associations with sun-worship, it has come to be invested to the Christian mind with all the meaning attached to ‘Lord’s Day,’ and used interchangeably with that name
Hermas Shepherd of - This valuable and interesting relic of the life and thought of the early Roman Church may be described as a manual of personal religion, cast in an imaginative form. His wife is represented as a person who did not sufficiently Restrain her tongue (ii. The Visions form the introduction to the Rest, the Shepherd not appearing until the last of these. She then reads from a book the glories of God, but Hermas can only remember the last words, for the Rest is too terrible to bear. He has been sent by the most holy angel to dwell with Hermas for the Rest of his life. These stones come from the deep, and the Rest come from the mountains. In view of the Roman character of the Shepherd, it is interesting to note that the tower which represents the Church is represented as founded, not on Peter, but, in the third Vision, upon the waters of baptism, and, in the ninth Parable, upon the rock of the Son of God. is the authority for the Rest of the work, except the concluding portion, from Sim
Beatitude - But the word is unduly Restricted in its significance when it is used as a synonym for beatification,—a Roman Catholic ceremony wherein an inferior degree of canonization is conferred on a deceased person. 1904) the word μακάριος can be Restored, although the subject of the Beatitude has been lost. ’...
‘Blessed be they who keep the baptism, for they shall Rest in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ) prefers the mystical significance of eight to similar interpretations of seven; for if seven is the number of Rest after labour, ‘eight is the number of blessedness and glory after Rest’; he also dwells on the annexing of the promise of the Kingdom of heaven to the eighth Beatitude as well as to the first: ‘This is the consummation of blessedness; the recurring note of the beatific octave; also in the eighth Beatitude the word “blessed” is repeated for the sake of greater certainty and emphasis. But the words which better represent the spirit of the teaching may also Rest on the authority of Jesus. Other Beatitudes may in like manner have been Restated in a more specific form. The first grace—poverty of spirit—is the germ of all the Rest; the first and last Beatitude is the all-comprising word—‘theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Cures - On the other, a new tone and vigour are Restored to the unseen and intangible but essentially real ‘life’ of the patient. But they must be steadily borne in mind when cases of Restoration—those in process to-day, and those recorded in the Gospels—are considered. Consideration of the actual phenomena of our Lord’s working in the Restoring of the sick will make these facts more manifest. This feature is seen in all His actions, but found its clearest expression in the case of the woman who could in no wise lift up herself (Luke 13:11-17) (See Impotence). It involved a deep expenditure of nervous, physical, and spiritual energy, and often in the Gospels we read of the spent, tired worker seeking refreshment in Rest and in solitude, and most of all in fellowship with God. ’ The crisis was safely passed, and the Rest was left to nature’s gentle action. The Syro-Phœnician’s daughter was delivered from her besetment and left ‘thrown upon the bed,’ physically prostrate, and requiring Rest and care. The daughter of Jairus was ordered Rest and food, and the blind man at Bethsaida was only by degrees Restored to perfect sight. We have seen that the working of Jesus did not disdain to utilize these and all other forces in human nature which make for healing; and by reason of His unique and perfect alliance with the Divine Source of all life and health, He was able to bring instantaneous and permanent relief and Restoration to whole companies of sufferers. The power of the mind over bodily ailments, in the maintenance and Restoration of health, is being increasingly acknowledged
Heaven - Hence the conception of heaven is wholly spiritualized, and the thought of it as an intermediate place of Rest disappears. (account of the ten heavens in order; Paradise is in the third heaven, and also the place of punishment for the wicked), Leviticus 2, lxvii, 2, 4 Maccabees 13:16; 4 Maccabees 5:37; 4 Maccabees 18:23 (note the phrase ‘Abraham’s bosom’ used for the place of Rest for the righteous after death). An intermediate place of Rest for the righteous (Apoc. There are the multitudes of the redeemed (Revelation 7:9-17); the souls of the martyrs are seen under the altar in heaven; they are granted white robes, and Rest until the appointed number of the martyrs is made up
Monastery - Monastery is only properly applied to the houses of monks, mendicant friars, and nuns: the Rest are more properly called religious houses. ...
The suppression of these houses occasioned discontent, and at length an open rebellion: when this was appeased, the king resolved to suppress the Rest of the monasteries, and appointed a new visitation, which caused the greater abbeys to be surrendered apace: and it was enacted by 31 Henry VIII
Sadducees (2) - ’ The suggestion is interesting, but is put forward ‘with great diffidence’ by its author. Brought into close contact with their Gentile rulers, their political interests tended to thrust the religious into the background. And being themselves in comfortable circumstances, they were satisfied with the present, and felt no special need of a future rectification in the interests of justice. It is not, however, correct to say that the Sadducees acknowledged only the Pentateuch and rejected the Rest of the OT. ’ This is quite in keeping with the Rest of their views
Corner-Stone - When the first row of stones above the ground line is to be laid, the masons place a long, well-squared block of stone at the corner to be a sure Rest for the terminus of the two walls. The same situation of conflict is presented in Isaiah 8:14, where the fear of the Lord would be to some a sanctuary, a place of safety and Rest by the way, but to others a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence
Hunneric, King of the Vandals. - of Nepta, was burnt to terrify the Rest of the Catholic party. On these conditions the king promised to Restore them their churches. " Of the 466 attending the council, 88 fell away to Arianism; of the others one was a martyr, one a confessor, 46 were banished to Corsica, and the Rest to the country parts of Africa
Essenes - In the troublesome and superstitious observance of the Rest of the Sabbath, according to the letter, and not according to the spirit, they went even farther than the other Jews, only with this difference, that they were in good earnest in the matter, while the Pharisees by their casuistry relaxed their rules, or drew them tighter, just as it suited their purpose. This is a sufficient proof that although the Essenes might possess a certain inward religious life, and a certain practical piety, yet that these qualities with them, as well as with many other mystical sects, as for example, those of the middle ages, were connected with a theosophy, which desired to know things hidden from human reason, εμβατευειν εις α τις μη εωρακεν , and therefore lost itself in idle imaginations and dreams, and were also mixed up with an outward asceticism, a proud spirit of separation from the Rest of mankind, and superstitious observances and demeanours totally at variance with the true spirit of inward religion
Pilate - He was compelled to give way, but subsequently set up in the palace of Herod tablets dedicated to the Emperor, which was taken as an attempt to introduce the Cæsar-worship already flourishing in the Rest of the Empire. The fault would seem to Rest with the central authority, which did not realize that in administering the small province of Judæa it had to deal not with the province alone, but with all the millions of Jews scattered throughout the Empire, profoundly earnest in religious convictions, regarding Judæa as the holy centre of all they held dearest, and maintaining direct communication with the Sanhedrin, to which the Romans themselves had allowed a certain authority over all Jews throughout the Empire
Joab - David, deeply grieved, prayed that the guilt and its penalty might ever Rest on Joab and his house, and constrained Joab to appear at the funeral with rent clothes and in sackcloth. , commanding the Rest of the city, that the general might not receive the glory which ought to belong to the king. ...
Joab next, by the wise woman of Tekoa and her parable, induced the king to Restore Absalom, which Joab saw was David's own wish, though justice constrained him to severity. ...
Aware of the anguish the act would cause David, Joab Restrained Ahimaaz who was eager to carry the tidings to the king. The grief of David was overwhelming, and was only Restrained by Joab's indignant warning that, unless he went forth and spoke encouragingly to his victorious soldiers, all would desert him. David stung by his disrespectful plainness, and feeling that Joab if his own interest was at stake was as little to be depended on as the adversary just defeated, appointed Amasa to supersede Joab
Promise (2) - The Evangelic records exhibit, each in its own way, the consciousness that Israel’s hopes had found their fulfilment in Christ; and, sober and Restrained as is the narrative, one can hardly miss in it the note of jubilant realization. 6, 8); ‘He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it’ (Matthew 10:39; Matthew 16:25); ‘I will give you Rest,’ and ‘Ye shall find Rest to your souls’ (Matthew 11:28-29); ‘I will make you fishers of men’ (Mark 1:17, cf
Birds - When the fatigued birds stop to Rest, they can be caught easily. It can fly without Rest for long spans of time. The common belief was that as long as a body remained unburied, the person could not be gathered to the fathers and experience Rest in Sheol
Judges, the Book of - Hence, the oft recurring phrase, "the land had Rest . Hence too in the millennial future Restoration of Israel Isaiah (Isaiah 1:26) announces from God, "I will Restore thy judges as at the first," as in Israel's most peaceable days: Joshua, the judges, and Samuel (compare Isaiah 32:1; Matthew 19:28). Eli and Samuel are not included, because Eli was high priest, and as such was officially judge, not, as the Rest, especially called to be judges. Only the tribes oppressed at a particular time are noticed; the Rest walking according to the law, and therefore at peace, do not come under consideration
Art, Christian - In Spain religious art flourished early in architecture and handicraft, and reached its climax in painting, later than the Rest of Europe, with Velasquez and Murillo
Christian Art - In Spain religious art flourished early in architecture and handicraft, and reached its climax in painting, later than the Rest of Europe, with Velasquez and Murillo
Symbol - The journey to Canaan supplied Passover, manna, rock, redemption, better country, Rest
Sod'om - From all these passages, though much is obscure, two things seem clear:
That Sodom and the Rest of the cities of the plain of Jordan stood on the north of the Dead Sea; ...
That neither the cities nor the district were submerged by the lake, but that the cities were overthrown and the land spoiled, and that it may still be seen in its desolate condition. Robinson Rests his argument is the situation of Zoar
Faith - It admits of many degrees up to full assurance of faith, in accordance with the evidence on which it Rests. Assent to the truth is of the essence of faith, and the ultimate ground on which our assent to any revealed truth Rests is the veracity of God. It cannot be better defined than in the words of the Assembly's Shorter Catechism: "Faith in Jesus Christ is a saving grace, whereby we receive and Rest upon him alone for salvation, as he is offered to us in the gospel. In this act of faith the believer appropriates and Rests on Christ alone as Mediator in all his offices. ...
This assent to or belief in the truth received upon the divine testimony has always associated with it a deep sense of sin, a distinct view of Christ, a consenting will, and a loving heart, together with a reliance on, a trusting in, or Resting in Christ. Faith Rests immediately on, "Thus saith the Lord
Ass - Issachar is compared to an "ass, strong boned, crouching down between the hurdles (Genesis 49:14): he saw that Rest was a good and the land pleasant; so he bowed his shoulder to bear, and became servant unto tribute;" ease at the cost of liberty would be his characteristic. The wild asses' characteristics noticed in holy writ are their love of unrestrained freedom, self will in pursuit of lust (Jeremiah 2:24), fondness for solitary places (Hosea 8:9), standing on high places when athirst (Jeremiah 14:6; when even the pere , usually so inured to want of water, suffers, the drought must be terrible indeed)
Faith - A temporary faith, is an assent to evangelical truths, as both interesting and desirable, but not farther than they are accompanied with temporal advantages; and which is lost when such advantages diminish or are removed, Matthew 11:24 . Conversion is a turning from sin, which faith sees, and repentance sorrows for, and seems to follow, and to be the end of all the Rest
Struggles of Soul - When Restoring hearing and speech by the unusual means of putting His hands in the ears and touching the tongue, prayer, and the word ‘Ephphatha,’ He sighed (ἐστέναξεν, Mark 7:34). So also this feeling of sympathy came in conflict with His desire for Rest and privacy (Matthew 9:30, Mark 1:44; Mark 6:31)
Consecration - In another he prays...
That ALL who should hereafter be buried within the circuit of this holy and sacred place, may Rest in their sepulchres in peace, till Christ's coming to judgment, and may then rise to eternal life and happiness
Deluge - ...
If the waters had only overflowed the neighbourhood of the Euphrates and the Tigris, they could not be fifteen cubits above the highest mountains; there was no rising that height but they must spread themselves, by the laws of gravity, over the Rest of the earth; unless perhaps they had been retained there by a miracle; in that case, Moses, no doubt, would have related the miracle, as he did that of the waters of the Red Sea, &c
Benjamin - A late and composite story is found in Judges 19:1-30 ; Judges 20:1-48 ; Judges 21:1-25 of an almost complete annihilation of the tribe by the Rest of the Israelites
Gentleness (2) - Πραύτης is rather an inward disposition of the mind, the quietness of soul which is the result of faith and self-restraint; ἐπιείκεια is an active grace, exhibited in human relations, ‘it expresses the quality of considerateness, of readiness to look humanely and reasonably at the facts of a case’; it denotes in Jesus the tenderness of His dealings with the moral and social outcasts, the burdened and heavy laden, the weak and ignorant; His gracious courtesy, geniality of address, thoughtfulness, and delicacy of touch. His reception of the little children (Matthew 18:2; Matthew 19:13), His thoughtfulness for the multitude lest they should faint by the way (Matthew 15:32), the brotherly touch of His hand upon the leper (Mark 1:41), the delicacy of His approach to the sorrowing (Luke 7:13, John 11:35), His tender tones to His perplexed disciples—‘little children,’ ‘I will not leave you orphans’ (John 13:33; John 14:18), and His sense of their frailty in the words, ‘Sleep on now and take your Rest’ (Matthew 26:45), His consideration, even in the agony of death, for His mother (John 19:26-27),—are but examples of that gracious gentleness which consisted with, and was the expression of, a Divine dignity of love
Greetings - ...
Usually the rider salutes the footman, the traveller those whom he passes on the wayside, the smaller party the larger (one speaking for the Rest in each case), and the young the aged. The nature of the salutations indicated above sufficiently explains these Restrictions, and also enables us to understand the prohibition of Jesus, ‘Salute no man by the way’ (Luke 10:4)
Stone - When He crushes His enemies beneath His feet, they will be utterly broken, but those who, feeling their need, Rest their lives and hearts on Him, they are eternally blessed
Blessedness - ...
In the Rest of the NT μακάριος is less used than in the Gospels
Glorify - Resting in his own eternal glory and all-sufficiency, nothing can add to, or take from that glory. " (Colossians 2:9) But what angels or men can describe this? And in Christ's ministry, offices, character, work, and relations in the accomplishment, who shall undertake to set forth the glory of the Father in the Son, and the glory of the Son by the Father, through the efficient operation of God the Holy Ghost?...
I will only add, that it forms a part of that glory which all the persons of the GODHEAD are concerned in, and will be loved, and praised, and adored for, to all eternity by the church, when the church is glorified and made everlastingly happy, from her union with her glorious Head Christ Jesus, and brought home through a life of grace here, to a life of unspeakable nearness, felicity, and glory in Christ Jesus hereafter, and to Rest in the uninterrupted enjoyment of it for evermore
Satan - David Restrained his army commanders from killing Saul’s family who had repented of their misdeeds. Satan was once again in conflict with God’s purposes and the angels of God, but “the adversary” was not all-powerful and was subject to rebuke by God Himself A general usage of śâṭân (“adversary”) appears in 1 Kings 5:4: “But now the Lord my God hath given me Rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary or evil occurrent
Amalekites - If expelled with the Rest of their race from Egypt, they could not but recollect the fatal overthrow at the Red Sea; and if not participators in that catastrophe, still, as members of the same family, they must bear this event in remembrance with bitter feelings of revenge
Jubilee, the Year of - --These embrace three points: (1) Rest for the soil
Sennacherib - The huge stone tablets which formed the walls of its various apartments are covered with bas-reliefs and inscriptions; and though large portions of these have perished by violence and time, the fragments that remain are full of interest. The fortified towns, and the Rest of his towns which I spoiled, I severed from his country, and gave to the kings of Askelon, Ekron, and Gaza, so as to make his country small
Sculpture - In Spain religious art flourished early in architecture and handicraft, and reached its climax in painting, later than the Rest of Europe, with Velasquez and Murillo
Paula, a Roman Lady - Paula (2) , a noble and wealthy Roman lady, who accompanied Jerome to Palestine in 385, and lived the Rest of her life at Bethlehem, dying in 404. Her funeral was a kind of triumph, the whole church being gathered together to carry her to her Resting-place in the centre of the cave of the Nativity
Polytheism - Many causes, however, would conspire to dissolve this family, after the death of its ancestor, into separate and independent tribes, of which some would be driven by violence, or would voluntarily wander in a distance from the Rest. From these accounts given us by the best writers of antiquity, it seems that though the polytheists believed heaven, earth, and hell, were all filled with divinities, yet there was One who was considered as supreme over all the Rest, or, at most, that there were but two self-existent gods from whom they conceived all the other divinities to have descended in a manner analogous to human generation. ...
It appears, however, that the vulgar Pagans considered each divinity as supreme, and unaccountable within his own province, and therefore entitled to worship, which Rested ultimately in himself
Arrest - ARREST (John 18:2-11 = Matthew 26:47-56 = Mark 14:43-52 = Luke 22:47-53). —When Judas, withdrawing from the Supper, betook himself to the high priests and informed them that he was ready to implement his agreement (see Betrayal), their simplest way would have been to accompany him back to the upper room and there arrest Jesus. And with the Rest, forgetting their dignity in their eagerness to witness the success of their machinations, went some of the high priests, the temple-captains,† [6] ‘He had had even in His countenance something sidereal, the Apostles would never have followed Him at once, nor would those who had come to arrest Him have fallen to the ground. ‘The chamber in which he happened to be lying having no very bright light but being gloomy, it is said that the eyes of Marius appeared to dart a great flame on the soldier, and a loud voice came from the old man: “Darest thou, fellow, to slay C. ]'>[7] It is related of John Bunyan that once, as he was preaching, a justice came with several constables to arrest him. ...
Jesus reiterated His question: ‘Whom are ye seeking?’ and, when they answered again: ‘Jesus the Nazarene,’ He once more gave Himself up to arrest, adding an intercession for the Eleven: ‘If ye are seeking me, let these men go their way. ‘As though against a brigand,’ He said scornfully, ‘have ye come forth with swords and cudgels? Daily in the temple I was wont to sit teaching, and ye did not arrest me. ’ What had kept them from arresting Him in the temple-court? It was fear of the multitude (cf. Probably Mark had gone to Rest that evening after the celebration of the Passover by his household, and, with a foreboding of trouble, had lain awake
Bishop, Elder, Presbyter - But when presbyters began to form parties, and each presbyter thought that those whom he baptized belonged to him, it was decreed throughout the world that one of them should be elected and set over the others, and that on him should Rest the general supervision of the Church. ...
There is no need to assume that party spirit was in all cases, or even in most, the chief reason for setting one presbyter above the Rest. Montanism was a revolt against this official episcopacy-an attempt to Restore the charismatic ministry of the prophets, and when it failed, the triumph of episcopacy wag complete
Philistim - It is certain that, in the time of Abraham, the Canaanites were in possession of the Rest of the land, to which they gave their name: but the extreme south of Philistia, or Palestine, was even then possessed by the Philistines, whose king, Abimelech, reigned at Gerar. "—...
"Except the environs of these villages, all the Rest of the country is a desert, and abandoned to the Bedouin Arabs, who feed their flocks on it
Commerce - The narrow confines of the villages and towns in Palestine, however, Restricted commercial activity to shops or booths built into the side of private homes or to the open area around the city gate. Lending at interest to fellow Israelites was forbidden in Exodus 22:25 and Deuteronomy 23:19 . Eventually, the introduction of the camel and the establishment of caravansaries (inns where caravans can Rest at night) as storage and Rest centers, made it possible for merchants to take a more direct route across the deserts of northern Syria and Arabia. ...
Even in New Testament times, shipping was Restricted to particular routes and seasons (Acts 27:12 ). Mile markers set up along these roads show how often they were repaired and which emperors took a special interest in the outlying districts of his domain
Holy Spirit - And the one upon whom God’s Spirit would Rest in a special way was the Messiah (Isaiah 11:1-5; see MESSIAH). As Jesus’ baptism showed, God the Father was in heaven, God the Son was on earth, and God the Spirit had come from the Father to Rest upon the Son (Matthew 3:16-17)
Michal - After Saul's death Michal and her husband went with the Rest of the family to the E. Thence she was brought to David by Abner, as the king made her Restoration the one condition of a league and demanded her from Ishbosheth; so in spite of the tears of Phaltiel, who followed behind to Bahurim on the road up from the Jordan valley to Olivet, and was thence turned back by Abner, David's messenger; and the 20 men with Abner, whose puppet Ishbosheth was, escorted her. ...
Blunt thinks that Michal meant by the "handmaids" her hated rivals Abigail and Ahinoam, and that the gravamen of her pretended concern for his debasement Rested here
Deborah - So "the land had Rest for 40 years
Reuben - He saved Joseph's life from the crafty and cruel brothers, Levi, Simeon, Judah, and the Rest, by insisting that his blood should not be shed, but he be cast into a pit, Reuben secretly intending to deliver him out of their hands. The Dibon stone shows that Moab wrested from Reuben many cities assigned by Joshua to them
Slave/Servant - Foreigners could be enslaved permanently, but they had the right to circumcision (Exodus 12:44-48 ), Sabbath Rest (Exodus 20:10 ), and holidays (Deuteronomy 16:11 ,Deuteronomy 16:11,16:14 )
Galilee, Sea of - The lake, mirroring heaven in its union of Rest and energy, represents Him who best combined the calm repose which reflected His Father's image with energetic labors for God and man
Head - The top of a thing, especially when larger than the Rest of the thing as the head of a spear the head of a cabbage the head of a nail the head of a mast. Liberty freedom from Restrain as, to give a horse the head. License freedom from check, control or Restraint
Fear - Paul draws up against both Jew and Gentile-comprehensive and explanatory of all the Rest-is that there is no fear of God before their eyes (Romans 3:18)
Will - By grace, the freedom to use a created will as a moral agent is one of the key biblical distinctions between humans and the Rest of the created order. Thus, rebellion, hardness of heart, or the inner resistance of the will to comply with the obligations of the covenant required an inner transformation for peace to be Restored. God's relationship with his people was Restored when they responded to his grace by trying to observe his law with all their hearts. This Restored relationship was evidenced by God's desire for and pleasure with freewill offerings (Exodus 35:29 ; Leviticus 23:18 )
Ambrosiaster, or Pseudo-Ambrosius - of Milan; but this belief which Erasmus was among the first to question is now universally admitted to Rest on no sufficient grounds though opinions differ much as to the probable author
Exclusiveness - Only on one occasion do we find Him crossing the borders of the Holy Land into heathen territory (Mark 7:24), and on that occasion His object was not to extend the sphere of His work, but to secure an interval of Rest and leisure for the private instruction of His disciples. It has been alleged that this Restriction of His work was occasioned by want of sympathy with those outside the Jewish pale, in proof of which appeal is made to some of His sayings, such as those in which He characterizes Gentiles as ‘dogs’ (Matthew 15:26 ||), directs His disciples to treat an impenitent offender as ‘an heathen man and a publican’ (Matthew 18:17), and enjoins them to ‘use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do’ (Matthew 6:7). (4) The shortness of His earthly ministry made it imperative that He should Restrict the field to be evangelized, and not be diverted from His immediate purpose of establishing the Kingdom among the chosen people by the claims of those outside, however urgent and undeniable. He was anxious to help, if He could do so without sacrificing the interests of those who had the first claim upon His services
Shushan - of these is an irregular extensive but lower platform, as large as all the Rest put together. each way, Resting on four central pillars, 150 or 200 ft
Magi - To procure the greater veneration for these sacred fires, he pretended to have received fire from heaven, which he placed on the altar of the first fire- temple he erected, which was that of Xis, in Media, from whence they say it was propagated to all the Rest. The Jews had their sacred fire which came down from heaven upon the altar of burnt offerings, which they never suffered to go out, and with which all their sacrifices and oblations were made Zoroaster, in like manner, pretended to have brought his holy fire from heaven; and as the Jews had a Shekinah of the divine presence among them, Resting over the mercy seat in the Holy of Holies, Zoroaster likewise told his Magians to look upon the sacred fire in their temples as a Shekinah, in which God especially dwelt
Bethesda - " The Holy Ghost hath given his, testimony to the many blessed truths in his servant John's writings, and of consequence, to the reality and certainty of this pool of Bethesda among the Rest. But as then, it was the descent of an angel into the pool which gave efficacy to the waters, so now, it is by the coming of our Lord Jesus, the almighty angel of the covenant, into our midst, that any saving effect can be derived from the purest ordinances, or forms of worship
Episcopacy - In such cases, it appears that the bishop gave to one of the presbyters sent, and did so for the same reasons that had at first created inequality among the pastors, more extensive powers than were entrusted to the Rest, and made him his representative, authorizing him to preside over the others, and to discharge those parts of the ministerial office which, in his own church, he reserved for himself. Neighbouring churches, actuated by ardent zeal for the interests of divine truth, consulted together upon the best mode of promoting it
Judas Iscariot - Judas, the leading trait in whose character was covetousness, was probably induced to follow Jesus at first with a view to the riches, honours, and other temporal advantages, which he, in common with the Rest, expected the Messiah's friends would enjoy. In such a mind there could be no true faith, and no love; what wonder, then, when avarice was in him a ruling and unrestrained passion, that he should betray his Lord? Still it may be admitted that the knowledge which Judas had of our Lord's miraculous power, might lead him the more readily to put him into the hands of the chief priests
Atonement - ...
The day of expiation, or atonement, was a yearly solemnity, observed with Rest and fasting on the tenth day of Tishri, five days before the Feast of Tabernacles
Isaiah - A tradition among the Talmudist and fathers relates that he was sawn asunder during the reign of Manasseh, Hebrews 11:37 ; and this tradition is embodied in an apocrtphal book, called the "ascension of Isaiah;" but it seems to Rest on no certain grounds
Fear - Paul draws up against both Jew and Gentile-comprehensive and explanatory of all the Rest-is that there is no fear of God before their eyes (Romans 3:18)
Phar'Isees, - He denounced them in the bitterest language; see ( Matthew 15:7,8 ; 23:5,13,14,15,23 ; Mark 7:6 ; Luke 11:42-44 ) and compare (Mark 7:1-5 ; 11:29 ; 12:19,20 ; Luke 6:28,37-42 ) To understand the Pharisees is by contrast an aid toward understanding the spirit of uncorrupted Christianity. ; their fastings twice in the week, (Luke 18:12 ) were their tithing; (Matthew 23:23 ) and such, finally, were those minute and vexatious extensions of the law of the Sabbath, which must have converted God's gracious ordinance of the Sabbath's Rest into a burden and a pain
Inspiration - it is not the utterance of the mere individual, and so to be solved or interpreted by him, but of "the Holy Spirit" by whom the writer was "moved"; Scripture is not Restricted to the immediate sense in the mind of the individual writer, but has in view "the testimony of Jesus," which is "the spirit of prophecy" in the "holy men moved by the Holy Spirit. He who, working through means, creates the minute leaf as well as the mighty forest, saith of all His word, "till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law until all be fulfilled" (Matthew 5:18; "law" means the whole Old Testament, as John (Matthew 10:35) uses "law" of the psalms). ...
Christ's argument, "if He called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, say ye of Him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent, Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God?" Rests on the one word "gods" being applied to rulers, as types of the Son of God, therefore still more applicable to the Antitype Himself. So also Paul shows unhesitating confidence in the divine authority of special words, as "seed" not "seeds" (Galatians 3:16), "all" (Hebrews 2:8), "brethren" (Hebrews 2:11), "today," and "My Rest" (Hebrews 4:1-11). ) Moreover God has preserved by human means a multitude of manuscripts, patristic quotations, and ancient versions, enabling us to Restore the original text almost perfectly for all practical purposes. While some passages affecting vital doctrines are on examination rejected as not in the original, the doctrines themselves stand firm as ever, because they Rest on the agreeing testimony of the whole of God's word; in other passages the orthodox truths are confirmed more fully by Restoring the original text. They Rest the truth of the Holy Spirit's outpouring, Christ's resurrection, and the mystery of the admission of the Gentiles to be fellow heirs in the gospel, on the Old Testament as infallible (Acts 2:16; Acts 2:25-33; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 16:26)
Unbelief - The meaning is, We Christians are favoured with the good news of the heavenly Rest, as well as Israel in the wilderness were with the good news of the earthly Rest in Canaan; but the word which they heard concerning that Rest did not profit them, because they did not believe it. They were well aware that when once this union is dissolved no power can Restore it again. But how miserable would be the case of mankind, if the higher bond, connecting human affairs with heaven, could only be united by means of lies; if lies were necessary in order to Restrain the greater portion of mankind from evil! And what could their religion in such a case effect? It could not impart holy dispositions to the inward heart of man; it could only Restrain the open outbreaking of evil that existed in the heart, by the power of fear
Soul - It is capable of physical and sensuous pleasure (Luke 12:19), also of spiritual Rest and refreshment (Matthew 11:29). At death the disembodied soul passes to a ‘middle state’ (Hades), where, if righteous, it experiences Rest and refreshment in ‘Abraham’s bosom,’ or ‘Paradise’; or, if unrighteous, expiatory punishment (symbolized as a tormenting flame) in a limbus or ‘prison,’ which is separated by an impassable barrier from the abodes of the righteous. The disembodied souls are represented as conscious and intelligent, able to converse with one another, and interested in the welfare of their friends upon earth (Luke 16:19; Luke 23:43, 1 Peter 3:18, Revelation 6:9). (3) The torments of Dives seem to nave been remedial in effect, causing him for the first time to interest himself in the spiritual welfare of others (Luke 16:27). ...
Jesus claimed to stand in the same relation to human souls as God Himself; and as the Lord of souls issued the universal invitation, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden … and ye shall find Rest unto your souls’ (Matthew 11:28-29)
Nehemiah - The temple also, after a fashion, has been Restored, and the daily services of the temple are in full operation. He was the royal favourite above all the Rest of the palace, till his privileges and his powers and his wealth were all a proverb. How he was heard, and how the king's heart was moved, and how Nehemiah got leave of absence to go and build the walls of Jerusalem, and the letters that he carried to the king's foresters, and to those that kept the royal quarries, and how he set out to the city of his fathers to finish it-all that is to be read in Nehemiah's own memoirs written out for us to this day by his own graphic hand. And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did: neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the Rest that did the work. That is not the half of Nehemiah's roll of noble names; but you can go round the whole wall for yourselves, and see the Rest of the builders at their work for yourselves, till you come to the goldsmith's son at the going up of the corner. Let him know what he is doing every time he does it, and he will thus purchase for himself a good degree; that is to say, good work, and a real love for the good work, and step after step, he will escape all the Sanballats of the city, and will go on from work to work, through a youth and a manhood of interest and usefulness, occupation and protection, to an old age of the best love among us and the highest honours. Let him come to the King's quarries for stone, and to the King's forests for timber
Soul - It is capable of physical and sensuous pleasure (Luke 12:19), also of spiritual Rest and refreshment (Matthew 11:29). At death the disembodied soul passes to a ‘middle state’ (Hades), where, if righteous, it experiences Rest and refreshment in ‘Abraham’s bosom,’ or ‘Paradise’; or, if unrighteous, expiatory punishment (symbolized as a tormenting flame) in a limbus or ‘prison,’ which is separated by an impassable barrier from the abodes of the righteous. The disembodied souls are represented as conscious and intelligent, able to converse with one another, and interested in the welfare of their friends upon earth (Luke 16:19; Luke 23:43, 1 Peter 3:18, Revelation 6:9). (3) The torments of Dives seem to nave been remedial in effect, causing him for the first time to interest himself in the spiritual welfare of others (Luke 16:27). ...
Jesus claimed to stand in the same relation to human souls as God Himself; and as the Lord of souls issued the universal invitation, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden … and ye shall find Rest unto your souls’ (Matthew 11:28-29)
Disciple, Discipleship - The situation is different in the Old Testament and in the Rest of the New Testament. " That call from Yahweh is reiterated in the call of Jesus, when he said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you Rest" (Matthew 11:28 )
Nebuchadnezzar - ) and wrested from him all the territory from Euphrates to Egypt (Jeremiah 46:2; Jeremiah 46:12; 2 Kings 24:7) which he had held for three years, so that "he came not again any more out of his land. Zedekiah's eyes were put out after he had seen his sons slain first at Riblah, where Nebuchadnezzar "gave judgment upon him," and was kept a prisoner in Babylon the Rest of his life. As Nebuchadnezzar and the other three abused the trust, for self not, for God, the Son of Man, the Fifth, to whom of right it belongs, shall wrest it from them and Restore to man his lost inheritance, ruling with the saints for God's glory and man's blessedness (Psalms 8:4-6; Revelation 11:15-18; Daniel 2:34-35; Daniel 2:44-45; Daniel 7:13-27). Devotion to the gods, especially Bel Merodach, from whom he named his son and successor Evil Merodach, and the desire to Rest his fame on his great works and the arts of peace rather than his warlike deeds, are his favorable characteristics in the monuments
John the Apostle - ...
Nor was this characteristic Restricted to his as yet undisciplined state; it appears in his holy denunciations long afterward (1 John 2:18-22; 2 John 1:7-11; 3 John 1:9-10). The full narrative of Lazarus' Restoration to life (John 11) shows that he was an eye witness, and probably was intimate with the sisters of Bethany. He and Peter followed Jesus when apprehended, while the Rest fled (John 18:15), even as they had both together been sent to prepare the Passover (Luke 22:8) the evening before, and as it was to John reclining in Jesus' bosom (compare Song of Solomon 8:3; Song of Solomon 8:6) that Peter at the supper made eager signs to get him to ask our Lord who should be the traitor (John 13:24). Ardent love lent wings to John's feet, so that he reached the tomb first; but reverent awe Restrained him from entering. Jerusalem when all the Rest were scattered. ...
Returning some time afterward John said to the bishop: "restore the pledge which I and the Saviour entrusted to you before the congregation. " John never left him until he had rescued him from sin and Restored him to Christ
Greece - Since its mountains were heavily forested in earlier times, shipbuilding and the sea trade developed. Located on the narrow isthmus that connects the Peloponnesus to the Rest of Greece, Corinth was a brawling, sinful seaport town, the crossroads of the Mediterranean (Acts 18:1-17 )
Zebulun - ...
Zebulun shared in the natural richness and fertility of the Rest of Galilee, and the great ‘way of the sea’ (the via maris of the Crusaders) which ran through its territory, and from Acco to Damascus, brought it into touch with the outer world and its products
Day - ...
Interest in "days to come" is a longstanding one (Genesis 49:1 ; Numbers 24:14 ). The writer to the Hebrews sees in the day a prefiguring of the greater "rest" that God envisions for his own (4:6-11)
Master - It is not translated "masters" in the Rest of the NT, save in the AV of James 3:1 "(be not many) masters," where obviously the RV "teachers" is the meaning. It has been shown, however, that in the period of the Koine (see Foreword) amphoteroi, "both," was no longer Restricted to two persons
Bread - The Rest of the occurrences are in prose narratives or in Ezekiel’s discussion of the new temple ( Surprise - It is in the subjective reference of the term that we are specially interested in reading the Gospels—the surprise Jesus felt and the surprise He caused. He was disappointed in His desire for Rest with His disciples (Mark 6:31; Mark 6:34), and for secrecy (Mark 7:24-25)
Seed (2) - ‘Jesus has to preach; the Rest is God’s concern’ (Wellhausen)
Loneliness - Solitude for the purposes of prayer, meditation, and Rest. The disciples remained with Him till the end, when the arrest proved too much for their loyalty, although we find John, with the women, at the foot of the cross (John 19:25-26, Matthew 27:55, Mark 15:40)
Lucifer - The earth gains instant Rest, and by a beautiful figure of rhetoric, is said to break forth into singing
Gad (1) - of Jordan, along with them: Numbers 32:17; Numbers 32:21; Numbers 32:32; Joshua 1:14; Joshua 4:12), he executed the justice of Jehovah (Moses prophetically foresees Gad will do what Jehovah required of His people as righteousness) and His judgments (in fellowship) with (the Rest of) Israel
Seventy Weeks of Daniel - To reconcile with this the dates of history, it must be noticed that these weeks do not date from the commandment to build the temple (which was in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, Ezra 1:1 ), but from the commandment to Restore and build the city of Jerusalem, which was given in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes. The Rest of the prophecy in Daniel 9:26 agrees with the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, and foretells a determined period of desolation till war against it will end
Altar - Either the blood was poured over this stone, which was regarded as the temporary abode of the deity, or the stone was anointed with part, and the Rest poured out at its base. Now the nearest analogy to the disc of leather spread on the ground, which was and is the table of the Semitic nomad, was the smooth face of the native rock, such as that on which Manoah spread his offering ( Judges 13:19 f. As altars to which a special interest attaches may be mentioned that erected by David on the threshing floor of Araunah ( 2 Samuel 24:18 ff
Cut - It signifies also, to cut into pieces to sever or divide as, to cut timber in the forest. A part cut off from the Rest as a good cut of beef a cut of timber
Ezra, Book of - 4 tells that, owing to the unfriendly action of neighbouring populations, the building of the Temple was suspended during the Rest of the reigns of Cyrus and Cambyses. This latter narrative is of first-rate importance and Rests upon extremely good information
Indulgences - Peter, and to his successors, the popes, who may open it at pleasure; and, by transferring a portion of this superabundant merit to any particular person for a sum of money, may convey to him either the pardon of his own sins, or a release for any one in whom he is interested from the pains of purgatory. I remit to you all punishment which you deserve in purgatory on their account: and I Restore you to the holy sacraments of the church, to the unity of the faithful, and to that innocence and purity which you possessed at baptism: so that when you die, the gates of punishment shall be shut, and the gates of the paradise of delight shall be opened; and if you shall not die at present, this grace shall remain in full force when you are at the point of death. If any man, said they, purchase letters of indulgence, his soul may Rest secure with respect to its salvation
Holy - Particularly the sabbath day is “devoted” as a day of Rest: “If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord …” ( Baal - Accordingly, the Phoenicians, being originally Canaanites, having once had, as well as the Rest of their kindred, the knowledge of the true God, probably called him Baal, or lord. It is certain, however, that when the custom prevailed of deifying and worshipping those who were in any respect distinguished among mankind, the appellation of Baal was not Restricted to the sun, but extended to those eminent persons who were deified, and who became objects of worship in different nations
Protestant - I, for my part, after a long, and, as I verily believe and hope, impartial, search of the true way to eternal happiness, do profess plainly that I cannot find any Rest for the sole of my foot but upon this rock only
Now - ...
A — 6: λοιπόν (Strong's #3063 — Adverb Neuter — loipon — loy-pon' ) the neuter of loipos, "the Rest, from now," is used adverbially with the article and translated "now" in Mark 14:41
Sepulchre - Of these the two innermost are deeper than the Rest, having a second descent of about six or seven steps into them
Passover - They were days of Rest, and were called Sabbaths by the Jews
Ban - In this case only the men, women, and children of the doomed city were devoted, while the cattle and the Rest of the spoil became the property of the victors ( Deuteronomy 2:34 f

Religion (2) - the rise of psychological and humanitarian interests has created a tendency to lose the revelation in the response. ), ‘Thou hast made us for Thyself, and our heart is Restless until it find its Rest in Thee. This need of security and Rest is perfectly met by Christ. To the soul once awakened there is no Resting-place except in the eternal Christ, ‘the same yesterday and to-day and for ever. Religion has found expression in sacrifices on account of the well-nigh universal instinct that something must be offered in order to avert the wrath or unkindness of the Deity, or at least to Restore happy relations between the worshipper and the world that is beyond his control. Suffice it that the sacrifice is intended to Restore communion with God in such a way that in the place of guilt and fear there may come a sense of favour through prosperity and peace. ...
This strong sense of a separateness that may be bridged is more or less efficient in all human response to the Unseen, and is the basis on which the higher religions Rest. The danger is that the interest may run out towards the material sacrifice and its attendant rites in such a way that the end is forgotten in the means. ’ But surely the religious man is at equal pains to assure himself of an all-embracing Personality at the heart of things, to which his own soul can return and be at Rest (Psalms 116:7). And it was a radiant goodness, unconscious and unlaboured, in the early Christians that chiefly arrested the attention of the world. It is on this truth that the gospel of Jesus Rests
Abortion - These terms designate humanity, over and against the Rest of creation, as somehow modeled after God. ...
The psalmist's portrait of humanity, as distinguished from the Rest of creation, employs language of dignity, honor, and lofty position, rather than of divine image (Psalm 8:3-8 ). Job's Restoration is marked by the blessing of offspring (42:12-17); and the psalmist depicts the blessing, particularly of sons, in terms of inheritance and divine reward, legal protection, and prestige (127:3-5; Restoration, various degrees of imperfect, painful existence are inevitable. In other contexts, God's interest in prenatal development demonstrates his greatness and inscrutability (139:13-16; cf. ...
When Isaiah considers the early stages of Israel's history and his own commission as a prophet, he takes up images of life in the womb, declaring powerfully that, like the unborn child, God's people at all stages Rest solidly within the realm of God's watchful care and concern (44:2,21, 24; 46:3; 49:1-5). Further testimony to this profound interest in society's least protected is heard from texts that single out the destruction of pregnant women and children among the atrocities perpetrated by enemy troops (2 Kings 8:12 ; 15:16 ; Hosea 10:14-15 ; Nahum 3:10 ; cf
Self-Control - ...
(2) Control over instincts and the entire appetitive life, wherein the ethical rule is indulgence with Restraint, is traceable in Christ both in the particulars of His historical manifestation, and as sustained with completeness in times of special temptation. Christ, for instance, knew weariness and its massive appeals for physical Rest, but was so completely master of Himself as to be able to postpone, if not to withhold, the response (Matthew 8:24, John 4:6 ff. During the week of the Passion the nights were spent at Bethany (the village or its neighbourhood: Matthew 21:17, Mark 11:11), in part probably with a view to bodily Rest after the busy days. ...
Of the mastery exercised by Christ over His emotions the characteristics appear to be a recognition of the legitimacy of emotion, sometimes even of free and unrestrained emotion, with the avoidance of all such qualities and extremes as the world has learned to condemn. The relief and the joy are traceable in Christ (Matthew 11:25, Luke 10:21, John 17:1; John 17:4), who on the earlier occasion immediately proceeds, according to the one tradition, to offer Rest to the weary, and, according to the other, to pronounce a benediction upon His disciples. He was sociable yet free, interested but not absorbed in nature and in man, subject to every pure emotion but possessed and mastered by none. Acts 1:6), tempers and views that were discordant and unseemly, with a traitor lurking in the midst; yet Christ never allowed the strain of His work, or the uncongeniality or impotence of the men who were nearest to Him, to divert His sympathy or to ruffle the settled quiet of His demeanour. —For man self-control assumes a double aspect, according as it is a rule of Restraint or of activity. , Mark 9:43-48); and not even relationships that are legitimate and pure must be allowed to interfere with the interests of the Kingdom of heaven (Matthew 19:12, cf
Hebrews - The interest in the Old Testament cult is explained by the fact that the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament) was the Bible of the early Gentile church. This same interest in the Old Testament elements of worship was strong in the second century Church Fathers, who were also Gentiles. The readers should enter God's Rest while it is still available (Hebrews 4:1-13 ); they should go on to maturity (Hebrews 6:1-8 ). Believers must claim God's promised Rest in faith (Hebrews 4:1-11 )
Daniel, Theology of - ...
The sovereignty of God is played out in the Rest of the book in the conflict between the proud and arrogant rules of the world and the kingdom of God. ...
Although this promise is certain and sure, the Rest of the book describes a delay in the arrival of God's eternal kingdom
the Unprofitable Servant - And I refer to that page because it so Restores the true balance of evangelical and experimental truth in this matter now in hand. He will not take Rest nor peace of mind short of the most absolute perfection in his services, leaving no room for the Rest and the peace that Christ offers, and Himself is, to all His true-hearted servants

Woman (2) - —The relation of Christ to woman is one of the most interesting and one of the most difficult topics in the Gospels. Further, it is clear from her question that He had not checked her interest in the wider events of the world and the Kingdom of God. A veil will always Rest over the frequent communings between the Mother and the Son, but it is quite clear from the use of the expression ‘mine hour,’ that she had been led to think of and desire that time of manifestation when His Personality should be revealed. When the great tragedy is being enacted, and the greatest possible excitement prevails, she, like her Divine Son, maintains an attitude of quiet self-restraint. Matthew gives us is as interesting as it is unexpected. His wife, on the other hand, is deeply interested in all that she hears. As women ministered at the Birth, the Presentation in the Temple, and during those early years when His mother was His chief teacher, so they ministered at the Entombment, when they anointed His body; at the Resurrection, when they carried the news to the frightened disciples; and at the Ascension, when they with the Apostles and the Rest of His disciples received His blessing
Ephesus - Paul’s time had become thoroughly Greek, maintaining constant intercourse with Corinth and the Rest of Greece proper. It fell under Roman sway, with the Rest of the district, which the Romans called ‘Asia’ (q
Commandment - Paul (as also the other apostles) cites not only the Decalogue, but the Rest of the Torah as well, in support of his own ethical precepts (1 Corinthians 9:9; 1 Corinthians 14:34, 1 Timothy 5:18; cf. Paul and the Rest frequently give their precepts in the form of OT exhortations; cf. To trace this distinction to the difference between a greater and a less degree of certainty in the inward revelation (Baur) is the sheerest caprice; cf. 2 Peter 3:2); it should be noted, however, that the term ἐντολαί is Restricted to the commandments of God and Jesus, while the apostolic ‘commandments’ are denoted by other terms: δόγματα (Acts 16:4), παραγγελίαι (1 Thessalonians 4:2; cf
Calling - On this passage we may remark, that the "calling" and the "purpose" mentioned in it, must of necessity be interpreted to refer to the establishment of the church on the principle of faith, so that it might include men of all nations; and not, as formerly, be Restricted to natural descent. This is the text on which the Calvinists chiefly Rest their doctrine of effectual calling; and tracing it, as they say, through its steps and links, they conclude, that a set and determinate number of persons having been predestinated unto salvation, this set number only are called effectually, then justified, and finally glorified. But this passage was evidently nothing to the purpose, unless it had spoken of a set and determinate number of men as predestinated and called, independent of any consideration of their faith and obedience; which number as being determinate, would, by consequence, exclude the Rest
Prayer - And there is a continuous tradition of such prayers in the ancient Liturgies, in which prayers are offered for those who Rest in Christ that they may have peace and light, Rest and refreshment: that they may live in God (or in Christ): that they may be partakers of the joyful resurrection, and of the inheritance of the Kingdom of God. ’ They are living and they are interested in both our faith and conduct, and the least response of our loyalty to them will naturally find expression in our prayers for their peace and progress
Vincentius Lirinensis - A small portion of the church dissenting from the Rest must be cut off like an unsound limb; nay even a large portion if it does not abide by antiquity. divines, all Rest, more or less explicitly, upon the famous dictum of Vincent—which, indeed, derives considerable support from certain portions of the Prayer-Book, Articles, and Canons
Sabbatical Year - Their principles of Rest and redemption, though never practised as a piece of social politics, were preached as ideals, and may have had some effect in discouraging slave-owning, land-grabbing, and usury, and in encouraging a more merciful view of the relations between Jew and Jew
Zidon - The decline and fall of Assyria brought a period of Rest to Phœnicia, and recuperation to her cities
Barnabas - The book of Acts does not tell us why Barnabas knew Saul better than the Rest. ...
His not claiming maintenance as a minister (1 Corinthians 9:6), but preferring to work for his livelihood, flowed from the same sincere disinterestedness as led him at the first to sell his land and give the price to the church
Establishments - By a religious establishment is generally understood such an intimate connection between religion and civil government as is supposed to secure the best interests and great end of both. ...
Religious establishments, also, it is observed, and founded in the nature of man, and interwoven with all the constituent principles of human society: the knowledge and profession of Christianity cannot be upheld without a clergy; a clergy cannot be supported without a legal provision; and a legal provision for the clergy cannot be constituted without the preference of one sect of Christians to the Rest. In the three first and purest ages of Christianity, the church was a stranger to any alliance with temporal powers; and, so far from needing their aid, religion never flourished so much as while they were combined to suppress it. Religion, if it have any power, operates on the conscience of men; and, Resting solely on the belief of invisible realities, it can derive no weight or solemnity from human sanctions
Slave - They were given one full day’s Rest each week (Exodus 20:10) and were protected against unjust treatment. ...
All these Restrictions helped to decrease the practice of slavery in Israel
Manna - ...
(10) It ceases when they gain the promised Rest, for faith then gives place to sight and the wilderness manna to the fruit of the tree of life in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:2; Revelation 22:14)
Syria - Syria, with the Rest of the Persian Empire, fell to the advances of Alexander the Great
Wine - This appears to have been kept separate from the Rest of the juice, and to have formed the "sweet wine" noticed in (Acts 2:13 ) [2] The "treading" was effected by one or more men, according to the size of the vat. The explanations of the ancient lexicographers rather lead us to infer that its luscious qualities were due, not to its being recently made, but to its being produced from the very purest juice of the grape
Fatherhood of God - At one time it was thought that since children used this term to address their fathers the nearest equivalent would be the English term "Daddy. ...
Because of Jesus' use of this metaphor, it is not surprising that the Rest of the New Testament also emphasizes the Fatherhood of God
Oath - If man's nature had not something of subjection in it to a Supreme Being, and inherent principles, obliging him how to behave himself toward God and toward the Rest of the world, government could never have been introduced, nor thought of
Church, Gallican - And it may be interesting to those who have not the means of fuller information, to give a sketch of the causes which gave rise to those important events. Some think that there was another cause of the revolution, and which may be traced as far back at least as the revocation of the edict of Nantz in the seventeenth century, when the great body of French Protestants who were men of principle, were either murdered or banished, and the Rest in a manner silenced. " The Catholic religion is now again established, but with a toleration of the Protestants, under some Restriction
Scorn - In the Rest His silence is an expression of His own dignity, and of His refusal to give an answer to questions and charges which were not intended to bring the truth to light, but merely to raise unreasonable prejudice; while His severe attacks on the character of those who were too blinded by their imaginary virtues to try to amend their lives, are wonderful instances of a scorn unmarred by ill-nature and untainted with cynicism
Tradition - ...
The conflict with traditionalism, which figures so prominently in the Gospels, sinks into insignificance in the Rest of the NT
Covenant, Book of the - The thief who will not make Restitution is the only wrong-doer who loses his liberty. ) Other matters dealt with are witchcraft ( Exodus 22:18 ); the treatment of strangers ( Exodus 22:21 ); the reviling of God (or judges) and rulers ( Exodus 22:28-29 ); the offering of the first fruits and firstlings ( Exodus 22:29-30 ); the eating of animals found torn in the field ( Exodus 22:31 ); just judgment ( Exodus 23:1-3 ; Exodus 23:6-8 ); the year of Rest, and the Sabbath ( Exodus 23:10-12 ); feasts ( Exodus 23:14-16 )
Monotheism - That theological justification for the Exile (see Amos 2:4-8 ) opened the door for a theological, philosophical position that asserted the existence of only one God who is Lord not only of Israel but also of all the Rest of the world
Piety - But they who consecrate to him their youth, they do not profanely tell him to suspend his claims till the Rest are served, till they have satisfied the world and the flesh, his degrading rivals. Sin variously tends to the injury of health; and often by intemperance the constitution is so impaired, that late religion is unable to Restore what early religion would have prevented
Greatness - The important point to be borne in mind is that the statement must not be interpreted apart from the Rest of Christ’s teaching concerning His relationship to the First Person in the Trinity
Melchizedek - Thereupon the writer proceeds to develop the comparison in the interest of his conception of the supreme and permanent priesthood of Jesus Christ. -The writer need not be conceived as going back through Psalms 110:4 to the original tradition in Genesis 14 and working upon it independently; for there is sufficient reason to believe that the narrative had for a couple of centuries engaged the attention of some of the religious leaders of the people, and in the interpretation an interesting development may be traced. The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs is a Palestinian book; but Philo is a witness for the prevalence of a similar interest in the ancient story in Egypt. ]'>[2] Jonathan), and the narrative was taken to mean that the priesthood was transferred to Abraham, while the Rest of the descendants of Shem were excluded
Antonius - To them he bequeathed his hair-shirt; and the Rest of his worldly goods, his two woollen tunics and the rough cloak on which he slept, to bp
Certainty (2) - ...
It is characteristic that the grounds on which certainty is shown in the Gospels to Rest are moral grounds rather than intellectual; for commonly it is moral certitude, not scientific security, which is in view
Desert, Wilderness - It is the scene of the Temptation, of the feeding of the 5000, of midnight prayer and Rest from labour
Gideon - After the victory of the Israelites, under the guidance of Deborah, over the Canaanites, the land had Rest for forty years (an indefinite period)
Lama, Grand - According to the doctrine of this metempsychosis, the soul is always in action, and never at Rest; for no sooner does she leave her old habitation, than she enters a new one. ...
Though in the grand sovereignty of the lamas, the temporal power has been occasionally separated from the spiritual by slight revolutions, they have always been united again after a time; so that in Thibet the whole constitution Rests on the imperial pontificate in a manner else where unknown
Acacius (7), Patriarch of Constantinople - On the one side he laboured to Restore unity to Eastern Christendom, which was distracted by the varieties of opinion to which the Eutychian debates had given rise; and on the other to aggrandize the authority of his see by asserting its independence of Rome, and extending its influence over Alexandria and Antioch. For the Rest, the threats of Felix produced no practical effect. The Henoticon failed to Restore unity to the East, and in 519 the emperor Justin submitted to pope Hormisdas, and the condemnation of Acacius was recognized by the Constantinopolitan church
Praise - Israel is God’s “glory” when she exists in a divinely exalted and blessed state: “And give him no Rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth” ( a'Braham - The patriarch, with true Eastern hospitality, welcomed the strangers, and bade them Rest and refresh themselves. (Genesis 21:10 ) But the severest trial of his faith was yet to come
Thorn - If the word denotes a particular plant, it may be the "rest-harrow," a pernicious prickly weed, which grows promiscuously with the large thistles in the uncultivated grounds, and covers entire fields and plains, in Egypt and Palestine
Name - But Bonarota takes one of them for an image of Apollo, which has a chain round the neck, a garment wrapped over the right arm, and a bracelet on the left, with half boots on the legs; the Rest of the body being naked has an Etrurian inscription written downward in two lines on the inside of the left thigh
Greek Church - They observe a great number of holy days, and keep four fasts in the year more solemn than the Rest, of which Good Friday as the chief. The head of the Greek church, the patriarch of Constantinople, is elected by twelve bishops, who reside nearest that famous capital
Moral Obligation - It may, indeed, be conceded, that such is the constitution of the human soul, that when those distinctions between actions, which have been taught by religious tradition or direct revelation, are known in their nature, relations, and consequences, the calm and sober judgments of men will approve of them; and that especially when they are considered abstractedly, that is, as not affecting and controlling their own interests and passions immediately, virtue may command complacency, and vice provoke abhorrence: but that, independent of reflection on their nature or their consequences, there is an instinctive principle in man which abhors evil, and loves good, is contradicted by that variety of opinion and feeling on the vices and virtues, which obtains among all uninstructed nations. If a creature can have no existence, nor any power or faculty independently of God, it can have no right to employ its faculties independently of him; and if it have no right to employ its faculties in an independent manner, the right to rule its conduct must Rest with the Creator alone; and from this results the obligation of absolute and universal obedience
the Angel of the Lord - This view is put beyond all doubt by the fact, that Moses and the Jews so understood the matter; for afterward when their sins had provoked God to threaten not to go up with them himself, but to commit them to "an angel who should drive out the Canaanite," &c, the people mourned over this as a great calamity, and Moses betook himself to special intercession, and Rested not until he obtained the repeal of the threat, and the renewed promise, "My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee Rest
Agur - Nevertheless, this hypothesis does not appear to Rest upon a firm foundation
Maccabees - ...
The first book of the Maccabees is an excellent history, and comes nearest to the style and manner of the sacred historians of any extant. The two last chapters contain events under the reign of Demetrius Soter, the successor of Antiochus Eupator, and contain such varieties in their style, as render it doubtful whether they had the same author as the Rest of the work
Scotland - The reign of Malcolm III and his queen, Saint Margaret, during which the Church of Scotland was brought into unity with the Rest of Catholic Christendom, saw the Restoration of the monastery of Iona, the building of numerous churches, and the spread of the faith into the islands north and west of Scotland. His successor, David, brought Benedictine monks from France to Selkirk and Augustinian canons to Jedburgh, secured the Restoration of the ancient see of Glasgow, erected five other bishoprics, and established several abbeys, monasteries, convents, and houses for the military orders. Under Charles II the Catholics enjoyed little more indulgence than they had had under Presbyterians, but with the accession of James II the penal laws were suspended, Catholic worship was Restored, and the missionaries received government aid. ...

David did not wholly escape the demoralizing influences of prosperity and unrestricted power. , led him to cry out, "O that I had wings, like a dove; then would I fly away, and be at Rest
Nature - Paul says to the Ephesians: ‘we were by nature children of wrath, even as the Rest’ (2:3), he associates himself with those who before they were quickened and became partakers of grace were ‘dead in trespasses and sins
Mind - Under (b) may come 2 Thessalonians 2:2 , where it stands for the determination to be steadfast amidst afflictions, through the confident expectation of the day of Rest and recompense mentioned in the first chapter. " It implies moral interest or reflection, not mere unreasoning opinion

On the first day of the seventh month (within the period of September-October on our calendar) the ceremonial blowing of trumpets called the people together for a special day of Rest and worship (Leviticus 23:24-25)
Macrina, the Younger - 349) she devoted herself to the care of her widowed mother, the bringing up of her infant brother Peter, and the supervision of the interests of her family. With great self-command Macrina, ἡ μεγάλη , as he delights to call her, Restrained her groans, checked her asthmatic pantings, and putting on a cheerful countenance endeavoured to divert him from the present sorrow. 227), she noticed that her brother was weary and sent him to Rest awhile in an arbour in the garden
Silvester, Bishop of Rome - Whoever presided, the general conduct of the council seems to have been committed by the emperor to Chrestus, bp. Constantine, in making arrangements for the council, evidently takes no account of him, not even mentioning him in writing to Chrestus. ...
The attribution of Constantine's conversion and baptism to Silvester is as legendary as the Rest
Ebionism (2) - Much more interest and importance attach to the Gospel according to the Hebrews. But when his statement is taken together with those of Jerome, very interesting questions are raised as to the origin and connexions of the Synoptical Gospels, and of the First Gospel in particular, with the result that in modern theories upon this subject the Gospel according to the Hebrews has played an important rôle. But it is altogether a misrepresentation of the facts to say that this is the type of the ideal Christian life as it meets us in Luke, or that his references to riches and poverty ‘rest on the idea that wealth is pernicious in itself and poverty salutary in itself’ (Weiss, Introd, ii. What he means by ‘the Christ, the Son of God,’ he lets us see in the prologue; and his method in the Rest of the work is to show by selected examples how this conception of the truth about Jesus Christ has been historically realized. Origen, more than half a century later, distinguishes between two classes of Ebionites (οἱ διττοὶ Ἐβιωναῖοι), one of which confesses, like the Church generally, that Jesus was born of a virgin, while the other affirms that He was born like the Rest of men (c
Ebionism And Ebionites - 70), the church was formed at Pella under Symeon, and the Jewish Christians were brought face to face with two leading facts: firstly, that the temple being destroyed, and the observance of the Law and its ordinances possible only in part, there was valid reason for doubting the necessity of retaining the Rest; secondly, that if they adopted this view, they must expect to find in the Jews their most uncompromising enemies. 26]'>[2]); its Restoration would take place in the millennial kingdom of Messiah and the Jews would return there as the manifestly chosen people of God. They are said to have freed themselves from the common Jewish notion that the Messiah was to be an earthly king; they were not shocked as were so many of the Jews at the humbleness of the birth the sufferings and crucifixion of Jesus; but they agreed with them in looking upon the advent of Messiah as future and in deferring the Restitution of all things to the millennium. He was the Christ of God since not one of the Rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. They even asserted that by birth he was not a Jew but a Gentile (wresting his words in Act_21:39 who had become a proselyte in the hope of marrying the High Priest's daughter but that having failed in this he had severed himself from the Jews and occupied himself in writing against circumcision and the observance of the sabbath (Epiph. ; the Rest had returned to strict Judaism and the utter rejection of Christianity, or to a purer Christianity than that which Ebionism favoured
John the Baptist - Nevertheless, he was at first unacquainted with the person of Jesus Christ; only the Holy Ghost had told him that he on whom he should see the Holy Spirit descend and Rest was the Messiah. When Christ Restored the daughter of Jairus to life, Mark 5:37 ; Luke 8:51 ; when he was transfigured on the mount, Matthew 17:1-2 ; Mark 9:2 ; Luke 9:28 ; and when he endured his agony in the garden, Matthew 26:36-37 ; Mark 14:32-33 ; St. An opinion has prevailed, that he was, by order of Domitian, thrown into a caldron of boiling oil at Rome, and came out unhurt; but this account Rests almost entirely on the authority of Tertullian, and seems to deserve little credit. It is also to be remembered, that this book, which contains so much additional information relative to the doctrines of Christianity, and which may be considered as a standard of faith for all ages, was written by that Apostle who is known to have enjoyed, in a greater degree than the Rest, the affection and confidence of the divine Author of our religion; and to whom was given a special revelation concerning the state of the Christian church in all succeeding generations. We can particularly corroborate this by the following observation: John, in the Apocalypse, has individually distinguished each of the Christian communities, which lay the nearest within his circle and his superintendence, by criteria, taken from their faults or their virtues. From hence, the Rest contains its own explanation
New Testament - No superstitious or antiquarian interest was felt in the autographs which copies superseded. More materials exist for Restoring the genuine text of New Testament than for that of any ancient work. Bentley (Phileleutherus Lipsiensis), reviewing Collins' work, shows if ONLY ONE manuscript had come down there would have been no variations, and therefore no means of Restoring the true text; but by God's providence MANY manuscripts have come down - some from Egypt, others from Asia, others from the western churches. Bentley collated the Alexandrinus manuscript, and was deeply interested to find that Wetstein's collation of the Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus of Paris (C) confirmed the Alexandrinus readings. Also in discrepant readings he prefers that one which may have been the common starting point to the Rest. These all were translated surely from the Greek itself; we are not sure of the Rest. Hase, 1834, Restored the writing by chemicals. Tregelles by chemicals discovered additional portions and Restored the whole. a particular revision of the old Latin version current in upper Italy) is to be preferred to the Rest. ...
The purest text is in Codex Vercellensis and Codex Veronensis, a and b, transcribed by Eusebius the martyr, fourth century, published by Blanchini, Evang. Jerome, collating the Latin with Greek manuscripts considered by him, the greatest scholar of the Latin church, ancient at the end of the fourth century, says he "only corrected those Latin passages which altered the sense, and let the Rest remain. The texts of Sixtus V (1590) and Clement VIII (1592), authorized with anathemas, differ widely from Jerome's true text as Restored by the Amiatinus manuscript or Laurentianus, which was transcribed by Servandus, abbot of Monast
Sinlessness - And even Judas Iscariot, though he had known Him long, and had, at the moment when he spoke, a strong interest in recalling anything with which he could have found fault as an excuse for his own conduct, acknowledged that he had betrayed ‘innocent blood’ (Matthew 27:4). Similar to this is the well-known position of Strauss, that it is not the way of the idea, in fulfilling itself in actuality, to pour all its fulness into one specimen, which is thereby enabled to boast itself over all the Rest; but that, on the contrary, it likes to display its riches in a multiplicity of specimens, which mutually supplement and complete one another. Had Jesus been a sinner like the Rest, He would have had to die like the Rest for His own sin. It is not a place to Rest in, but a stage on the way
Socialism - ’ But a man may be against Individualism or Anarchism, and to that extent a Socialist, and yet may be opposed to the current conceptions both of economic and political Socialism; he may possibly regard the growth of municipal undertakings with alarm, and he may even look, as Thomas Carlyle did, to the ‘strong man,’ and not to the democracy, for deliverance from the evils of insufficiently Restricted competition. ]'>[1] had been a powerful leaven of commercial morality; Wilberforce and his friends had, after a protracted battle of 20 years, conquered Individualism in the interests of the black slaves; Shaftesbury (a Conservative in politics) had already won a signal victory over the even more horrible ‘white slavery’ that went on in English factories. Socialism seeks such an organization of life as shall secure for every one the most complete development of his powers; Individualism seeks primarily the satisfaction of the particular wants of each one, in the hope that the pursuit of private interest will in the end secure public welfare’ (Westcott, Socialism, pp. He further taught her that if any members of this spiritual family were greater, richer, or better than the Rest, they were bound to use their special means or ability in the service of the whole. It is sufficient to allude to the Beatitudes, and to point out how much of the teaching in the Rest of the Sermon is still regarded as Utopian, as that about love of enemies (Luke 6:27), oaths, non-resistance, litigation and property, free giving (Matthew 5:33-48), lending without interest (Luke 6:34-35, money-making (Matthew 6:19), worrying about the future (Matthew 6:24-34). —The Rest of the NT contains abundant evidence that this social gospel was understood. , where this side is perhaps underestimated. The fact that Clement of Alexandria took a different view in his Quis Dives salvetur considerably increases the significance of the Rest of the Patristic literature: he explains the command to the Rich Young Man in Mark 10:21 in a purely allegorical sense, and protests that there is no advantage in poverty except when it is incurred for a special object, and that riches are serviceable if rightly used, and are not to be thrown away. The second doctrine was aimed against usury (because of Luke 6:34-35), and usury meant all receiving of interest on capital

The general design of the Koran was to unite the professors of the three different religions, than followed in the populous country of Arabia, (who, for the most part, wandered without guides, the far greater number being idolaters, and the Rest Jews and Christians, mostly of erroneous opinion, ) in the knowledge and worship of one God, under the sanction of certain laws and ceremonies, partly of ancient, and partly of novel institution, enforced by the consideration of rewards and punishments both temporal and eternal; and to bring them all to the obedience of Mahomet, as the prophet and ambassador of God; who, after the repeated admonitions, promises, and threats of former ages, was sent at last to establish and propagate God's religion on earth; and to be acknowledged chief pontiff in spiritual matters, as well as supreme prince in temporal. The great doctrine, then, of the Koran is the unity of God, to Restore which, Mahomet pretended, was the chief end of his mission; it being laid down by him as a fundamental truth, That there never was, nor ever can be, more than one true orthodox religion: that, though the particular laws or ceremonies are only temporary and subject to alteration, according to the divine direction; yet the substance of it, being eternal truth, is not liable to change, but continues immutably the same; and that, whenever this religion became neglected or corrupted in essentials, God had the goodness to re-inform and re-admonish mankind thereof by several prophets, of whom Moses and Jesus were the most distinguished, till the appearance of Mahomet, who is their seal, and no other to be expected after him. ...
The more effectually to engage people to hearken to him, great part of the Koran is employed in relating examples of dreadful punishments formerly inflicted by God on those who rejected and abused his messengers; several of which stories, or some circumstances of them, are taken from the Old and New Testaments, but many more from the apocryphal books and traditions of the Jews and Christians of those ages, set up in the Koran as truths, in opposition to the Scriptures, which the Jews and Christians are charged with having altered; and, indeed, few or none of the relations of circumstances in the Koran were invented by Mahomet, as is generally supposed; it being easy to trace the greatest part of them much higher, as the Rest might be, were more of these books extant, and were it worth while to make the inquiry. The Rest of the Alcoran is taken up in prescribing necessary laws and directions, frequent admonitions to moral and divine virtues, the worship and reverence of the Supreme Being, and resignation to his will. The slave fell on his knees, rehearsing these words of the Alcoran; "Paradise is for those who Restrain their anger. They say, that only ten chapters were delivered entire, the Rest being revealed piecemeal, and written down from time to time by the prophet's amanuensis, in such a part of such and such a chapter, till they were completed, according to the directions of the angel
Law - Sometimes, in a more Restricted sense, for the ritual or ceremonial observances of the Jewish religion. The religion of names arose from an idolatrous polytheism; and the name given here directly opposes this error, and in the ignorance of that dark and corrupted period establishes that great truth, to which the most enlightened philosophy can add no new lustre, and on which all the most refined speculations on the divine nature ultimately Rest, the self-existence, and, by consequence, the eternity and immutability, of the one great Jehovah. ...
But to teach the self-existence, the unity, the wisdom, and the power of the Deity, nay, even his moral perfections of mercy, justice, and truth, would have been insufficient to arrest the attention, and command the obedience of a nation, the majority of which looked no farther than mere present objects, and at that early period cherished scarcely any hopes higher than those of a temporal kind,—if, in addition to all this, care had not been taken to represent the providence of God as not only directing the government of the universe by general laws, but also perpetually superintending the conduct and determining the fortune of every nation, of every family, nay, of every individual. ...
Such was the theology of the Jewish religion, at a period when the whole world was deeply infected with idolatry; when all knowledge of the one true God, all reverence for his sacred name, all reliance on his providence, all obedience to his laws, were nearly banished from the earth; when the severest chastisements had been tried in vain; when no hope of reformation appeared from the refinements of civilization or the researches of philosophy; for the most civilized and enlightened nations adopted with the greatest eagerness, and disseminated with the greatest activity, the absurdities, impieties, and pollutions of idolatry. Then was the Jewish law promulgated to a nation, who, to mere human judgment, might have appeared incapable of inventing or receiving such a high degree of intellectual and moral improvement; for they had been long enslaved to the Egyptians, the authors and supporters of the grossest idolatry; they had been weighed down by the severest bondage, perpetually harassed by the most incessant manual labours; for the Egyptians "made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field," Exodus 1:14 . Thus, the command, "Thou shalt not kill," condemns not merely the single crime of deliberate murder, but every kind of violence, and every indulgence of passion and resentment, which tends either to excite such violence, or to produce that malignant disposition of mind, in which the guilt of murder principally consists: and similarly of the Rest. It is also remarkable, that this commandment, requiring that the Rest of the Sabbath should include the man-servant, and the maid-servant, and the stranger that was within their gates, nay, even their cattle, proved that the Creator of the universe extended his attention to all his creatures; that the humblest of mankind were the objects of his paternal love; that no accidental differences, which so often create alienation among different nations, would alienate any from the divine regard; and that even the brute creation shared the benevolence of their Creator, and ought to be treated by men with gentleness and humanity. But it was of infinite importance to Rest the prohibitions, "Thou shalt not kill," "Thou shalt not commit adultery," "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not bear false witness," not merely on the deductions of reason, but also on the weight of a divine authority. How often have false ideas of public good in some places, depraved passions in others, and the delusions of idolatry in still more, established a law of reputation contrary to the dictates of reason, and the real interests of society. ...
But the Jewish religion promoted the interests of moral virtue, not merely by the positive injunctions of the decalogue; it also inculcated clearly and authoritatively the two great principles on which all piety and virtue depend, and which our blessed Lord recognised as the commandments on which hang the law and the prophets,—the principles of love to God and love to our neighbour. ...
Thus, on a review of the topics we have discussed, it appears that the Jewish law promulgated the great principles of moral duty in the decalogue, with a solemnity suited to their high preeminence; that it enjoined love to God with the most unceasing solicitude, and love to our neighbour, as extensively and forcibly, as the peculiar design of the Jewish economy, and the peculiar character of the Jewish people, would permit; that it impressed the deepest conviction of God's requiring, not mere external observances, but heart-felt piety, well regulated desires, and active benevolence; that it taught sacrifice could not obtain pardon without repentance, or repentance without reformation and Restitution; that it described circumcision itself, and, by consequence, every other legal rite, as designed to typify and inculcate internal holiness, which alone could render men acceptable to God; that it represented the love of God as designed to act as a practical principle, stimulating to the constant and sincere cultivation of purity, mercy, and truth; and that it enforced all these principles and precepts by sanctions the most likely to operate powerfully on minds unaccustomed to abstract speculations and remote views, even by temporal rewards and punishments; the assurance of which was confirmed from the immediate experience of similar rewards and punishments, dispensed to their enemies and to themselves by that supernatural Power which had delivered the Hebrew nation out of Egypt, conducted them through the wilderness, planted them in the land of Canaan, regulated their government, distributed their possessions, and to which alone they could look to obtain new blessings, or secure those already enjoyed
Hebrews, the Epistle to the - ) refers to it oftener than any other canonical New Testament book, adopting its words as on a level with the Rest of the New Testament. By adding "as also in all his epistles" he distinguishes the epistle to the Hebrew from the Rest; and by classing it with the "other Scriptures" he asserts at once its Pauline authorship and divine inspiration
Thousand Years - ) "The Rest of the dead live not again until the thousand years are finished: blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. ) Paul's ambition was to "attain the resurrection from out of the Rest of the dead" (exanastasis )
Life - yield much that is of interest relating to contemporary Jewish thought; e. The preciousness of life, even in its humblest forms (‘sparrows,’ Matthew 10:29 || Luke 12:6 ), appears in connexion with our Lord’s arresting doctrine of Divine Providence, which stands in such unhesitating defiance of the sterner features of the world of life ( In Memoriam , lv. The definition found in John 17:3 (with which Wis 15:3 invites comparison) shows how essentially it is a matter of moral and spiritual interests. The Rest of the NT. For the Rest, the Apocalypse should be noticed for its use of such images as ‘crown of life,’ ‘book of life,’ ‘fountain,’ ‘river,’ and ‘water of life,’ and the ‘book of life’ (which we also meet with elsewhere) all embodying the Christian hope of immortality
Sacrifice And Offering - The one who made this sacrifice did so to Restore the relationship with God and to atone for some sin. The Rest of the blood was poured out at the base of the sacrificial altar. The Rest of the animal was taken outside of the camp to the place where the ashes of the sacrifices were disposed, and there it was burned. The guilt offering was concerned supremely with Restitution. Micah reflected the same sentiments when he proclaimed that God was not interested in the physical act of sacrifice by itself but in the life and heart of the one making the sacrifice (Micah 6:4-6 )
Angel - , and Daniel than the angelology of these to that of the Rest of the OT; this will be clearly seen by enumerating briefly the main characteristics of angels as portrayed in the Apocrypha. Christ’s teaching regarding angels may be summed up thus: Their dwelling-place is in heaven ( Matthew 18:10 , Luke 12:8-9 , John 1:51 ); they are superior to men, but in the world to come the righteous shall be on an equality with them ( Luke 20:36 ); they carry away the souls of the righteous to a place of Rest ( Luke 16:22 ); they are (as seems to be implied) of neither sex ( Independents - Jacob, therefore, having summoned several of his friends together, and having obtained their consent to unite in church fellowship for enjoying the ordinances of Christ in the purest manner, they laid the foundation of the first independent church in England in the following way. Rapin is farther mistaken when he represents the religious principles of the English Independents as contrary to those of all the Rest of the world. 12th, 1658, " as well as from other writings of the Independents, that they differed from the Rest of the reformed in no single point of any consequence, except that of ecclesiastical government; and their religious doctrines were almost entirely the same with those adopted by the church of Geneva. But after the Restoration, their cause declined; and in 1691 they entered into an association with the Presbyterians residing in and about London, comprised in nine articles, that tended to the maintenance of their respective institutions
Judas - And so unconscious were the Rest of the disciples who the traitor was, when the Lord at the table intimated that one of them should betray him, that they were exceeding sorrowful, and began to say unto him every one, Lord, is it I? And when the Lord to the enquiry of Judas declared that he was the person, there is nothing said of his departure, but that the Lord proceeded to bless the bread and the cup, and said, "Drink ye all of it. " (Job 1:6) But was the meeting unhallowed to the sons of God because the devil came in the midst? Were the apostles of Christ less apostles because Judas was "numbered with them, and had obtained part of this ministry?" (Acts 1:17) And surely if the Lord Jesus, well knowing as he did whom he had chosen, was pleased to number him for a time with the apostles, might he not for a time also allow him to sit down with the apostles at the same table? Yea, did not the Lord Jesus expressly tell the church, that these things were his own appointment, and perfectly known in all their consequences by his divine mind, when he said, "Have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?" (John 6:70) If choosing Judas to be an apostle, at the time Christ knew that he was a devil, did not in the least contaminate the Rest of the apostles, neither injure the cause of Jesus, it must undeniably follow, that his being present at the supper could not pollute the supper, nor the faithful partakers of the supper
Sanctify - A similar use of the word occurs in the prophet’s promise of the future Restoration of Israel: “When I … am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations …” ( Rested from all his work which God created and made. Israel is to set aside certain sacred days (Sabbaths) exclusively for divine service—for Rest from labor ( Rest in the Lord ( Elesbaan, a King, Hermit, And Saint of Ethiopia - ) The importance of the crusades on which his fame Rests is attested by Gibbon, who asserts that, had their purpose been attained, "Mahomet must have been crushed in his cradle, and Abyssinia would have prevented a revolution which has changed the civil and religious state of the world" (Decline and Fall , c. Over this, however, first ten ships and then seven more, including that of the Ethiopian admiral, were lifted by the waves; the Rest were driven back by stress of weather, but presently, the chain being, according to one account, broken, forced the passage, and passing the other seventeen, cast anchor farther along the coast. shore, where he thought his chain would force the Ethiopians to land, hurried from his position, and leaving but a few men to resist the smaller fleet, watched with his main army the movements of the Rest. The king Restored Negran, entrusting it to Arethas's son, rebuilding and endowing the great church, and granting perpetual right of asylum to the place where the bodies of the martyrs had lain, and then returned to Ethiopia (Boll
James the Lord's Brother - The first thirty years of James's life fascinate me and enthral me far more than all the Rest of human life and human history taken together. And, then, think of the last week of all; the arrest, the trial, the crucifixion, the resurrection of Mary's first-born Son-whose imagination is sufficient to picture to itself Joseph and Mary and James and the other brothers and sisters of Jesus all that week! Where did they make ready to eat the passover? What were they doing at the hour when He was in Gethsemane? Were they standing with the crowd in the street w
