Parched Ground - He answered, that water had all at once appeared there; that he Saw the motion of the waves, and tall palms and other trees bending up and down over them, as if tossed by a strong wind.

The "ascending" stands first, because the Lord was now below on earth, not above, as when Jacob Saw Him; and from Him as their center they go up, and to Him they return: the communication between earth and heaven, closed by sin, is opened by Christ's making earth His home

Cathari - Besides directly assailing the doctrines and hierarchy of the Catholic Church, the various tenets of the Cathari, as the denial of the value of oaths and of the right to punish, undermined the basis of the Christian State, while its abhorrence of generation and its commendation of suicide would have meant the extinction of the human race had the Catharist doctrine been triumphant; but by the 14th century it had practically disappeared from France, Germany, and England, while the 15th century Saw the disappearance of the heresy in Italy and the Balkan States

People Saw death as an enemy (Psalms 6:5; Psalms 56:13; Ecclesiastes 8:8; cf
Ear-Rings - These rings are of gold, and have commonly two pearls and one ruby between them, placed in the ring; I never Saw a girl, or young woman in Arabia, or in all Persia, who did not wear a ring after this manner in her nostril. " Some writers contend, that by the nose-jewel, we are to understand rings, which women attached to their forehead, and let them fall down upon their nose; but Chardin, who certainly was a diligent observer of eastern customs, no where Saw this frontal ring in the east, but every where the ring in the nose

the Samaritan Who Shewed Mercy - And by chance there came down a certain priest that way; and when he Saw him, he passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he Saw him, he had compassion on him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The priest Saw enough at the first glance to suffice and satisfy him: but the Levite stopped and went to the side of the road and looked at the half-murdered man, but that one look was enough for him also, for he also passed by on the other side. What do you think would be the thoughts of the half-dead Jew as he Saw his own temple-kinsmen passing by on the other side, and then Saw this dog of a Samaritan leaping off his mule? What would he think and say all night as he Saw this excommunicated Samaritan lighting the candle to pour oil and wine into his wounds and watching all night at his bedside? That Samaritan mule hobbling down the Jericho-pass with that half-dead burden on its back always reminds me of Samuel Johnson hobbling along to Bolt Court with the half-dead streetwalker on his back and laying her down on old Mrs. A kind thought, a kind look, a kind word, a kind deed; carry about that oil and that wine with you, and you will not lack wounded and half-dead men and women to bless the day on which they first Saw your face and heard your voice. "When I passed by thee, and Saw thee wounded and half dead, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live

Yet Micah Saw that beyond the judgment lay the hope of a restored nation, a glorious kingdom and an ideal king (Micah 2:12-13; Micah 4:1-4; Micah 5:2; Micah 5:4)
Divorce - This state of things, as Moses himself very clearly Saw, was not equitable as respected the woman, and was very often injurious to both parties. He had liberty to divorce her, if he Saw in her any thing naked, any thing displeasing or improper, any thing so much at war with propriety, and a source of so much dissatisfaction as to be, in the estimation of the husband, sufficient ground for separation
Error - —As one who lived in the undimmed vision of holiness and truth, ‘who Saw life steadily and Saw it whole,’ Jesus must have felt with an intensity we cannot fathom how sin had distorted the reason of man as well as perverted his affections. All around Him He Saw men walking ‘in the vanity of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart’ (Ephesians 4:18). He Saw, also, as no one else had ever seen, that the recovery of those who had become ‘vain in their reasonings’ (Romans 1:21) was to be achieved less by attacking their godless errors than by aiming at the renewal of the moral and spiritual nature. That was faith, and Jesus Saw in it a power which would work for the redemption of the whole nature
Jesus Christ - Jesus was delivered up by His own people and put to death by a cruel political regime, but the earliest New Testament communities Saw in this tragedy the determinate will of God (Acts 1-12 ).

In the great deed of the cross they Saw the salvation of the world. This conflict Saw Him crucified, but a Roman soldier Saw in this crucified One (the) Son of God (Mark 15:39 )
Lazarus - They laughed him to scorn, they shot out the lip at him, and he never Saw it. This evangelist, that bare record according as he Saw, had seen his Master's love to Martha and Mary many a time; but it was only now and then that he had the opportunity of seeing either Lazarus's love to his Lord, or his Lord's love to Lazarus. And He groaned in His spirit because He so clearly foresaw that His friend Lazarus, like Himself, was to be such a savour of death in them that perish, and at such a price to Lazarus. ...
So o'er the bed where Lazarus slept,He to His Father groan'd and wept:What Saw He mournful in that grave,Knowing Himself so strong to save?The deaf may hear the Saviour's voice,The fetter'd tongue its chain may break:But the deaf heart, the dumb by choice,The laggard soul that will not wake,The guilt that scorns to be forgiven:-These baffle e'en the spells of Heaven:In thought of these, His brows benign,Not even in healing cloudless shine. Yes: and if you Saw a friend of yours in glory, and then Saw also that he was to be summoned to lay aside his glory and to return to be a savour of death to so many of your fellow-citizens, you could not but weep also. Dante wept when he Saw that he had to return to envious Florence from the charity of Paradise, even though it was to compose The Commedia for God and for the world. ' And the sound of many waters fell silent for a season as they Saw one of the most shining of their number rise up, and lay aside his glory, and hang his harp on the wall, and pass out of their sight, and descend to where their heavenly Prince still tarried with His work unfinished

Heaven - "Thus saith the Lord, The heaen is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?" (Isaiah 66:1) But Solomon breaks out in an expression, as one overwhelmed with surprise and wonder in the contemplation: "But will God indeed (said he) dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven, and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee!" (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
Isaiah - I cannot forbear mentioning the commonly-received opinion, that Isaiah was Sawn asunder, in the beginning of the reign of Manasseh, and that his body was buried near Jerusalem, under the fuller's oak near Siloam.

Church: Her Glory in Tribulation - We Saw two such bows, one within the other, and we fancied that we discovered traces of a third. When we read in the first verse of the tenth chapter of Revelation,' I Saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head,' it greatly assists the imagination to conceive of a many-colored circlet, rather than a semicircle
Theophany - Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel, giants among the prophets, Saw God in visions (Isaiah 6:1 ; Ezekiel 1:1 ; Daniel 7:9 ). Jacob, sent off by Isaac to Paddan-aram, was granted a dream in which he Saw the Lord (Genesis 28:12-13 )
Directions (Geographical) - Israel Saw Jerusalem with its Mount Zion as the center of the world (Isaiah 2:2 ; Ezekiel 5:5 ). ...

Beloved Disciple - When the other disciple followed and Saw the empty tomb, he believed in the resurrection of Jesus (John 20:2-4 ,John 20:2-4,20:8 )
Serpent, Brazen - for he that turned himself toward it was not saved by the thing that he Saw, but by Thee that art the Saviour of all
Alien - The psalmist Saw all people as aliens on earth (Psalm 39:13 ; Psalm 119:19 )
Likeness - ...
First, the word means “pattern,” in the sense of the specifications from which an actual item is made: “Now King Ahaz went to Damascus … and Saw the altar which was at Damascus; and King Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the pattern of the altar and its model, according to all its workmanship” (2 Kings 16:10, NASB)

Thus in our Lord’s Ascension we do not conceive of Him as ‘going up’ farther than would symbolize and declare His departure from this world: ‘He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight’—they Saw Him go and they Saw what door opened to receive Him
Courage - He foresaw a situation bristling with menace to His followers, and courage was therefore a prime desideratum in His disciples, as it was an outstanding quality of His own nature. But the remark in Acts 4:13 ‘When they Saw the boldness of Peter and John … they took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus,’ is the record of the dominant impression made by Jesus, upon His enemies. When He knows that His hour has come, He presses to the cross with an eagerness which made those who Saw Him afraid (Mark 10:32)
Navel - (See Haggai 2:7; Hag 2:9)...
And is there not yet an higher view of the subject, considered as to the glorious persons who are the united source and cause of our salvation? If salvation is wrought out for the church in the middle of the earth, is not the Son of God, by whom it was wrought, the middle person of the GODHEAD? And not only so, the middle person of the Holy Three in One who bear record in heaven, but the middle person, the Mediator, between God and man, as the man Christ Jesus? (1 John 5:7; 1 Timothy 2:5) And can the imagination conceive any thing more blessed and suited for the glory and happiness of the church, than that he who is the centre in all these views, should be the centre towards whom all things should move, and in whom all should centre? And hence we read, that when John Saw heaven open, he Saw Christ as a lamb in the midst of the throne
Cloud - ...
Thus in our Lord’s Ascension we do not conceive of Him as ‘going up’ farther than would symbolize and declare His departure from this world: ‘He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight’—they Saw Him go and they Saw what door opened to receive Him
Heman - Heman Saw constantly a sight that to most men even in Israel was absolutely invisible. Heman Saw, and Saw nothing else, but his own soul. David was a man of affairs, and he had many other matters to see to besides the matters of God and of his own soul; but Heman Saw nothing else. Or it may have been because God, in His far foreknowledge, Saw some one in this house this night that no other Psalm would suit but this saddest of all the Psalms, Who can tell? Now, Heman's soul so full of troubles, you must understand, was not on account of Heman's outward estate. He Saw things in our Lord that no other Evangelist had the eyes to see: and he writes about our Lord in words that no other Evangelist can command. He went up to meet death with a serenity and with a stateliness of soul that confounded and almost converted those who Saw it

Violence - 16:5 Sarai summons God to judge between Abram and herself because he has not acted properly toward her keeping Hagar in submission: “My wrong [1] be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she Saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee
Chariotry - Next, rekeb refers to a “column” or “train of donkeys and camels”: “And he Saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels …” ( Image - Paul was greatly affected, when he Saw that the city of Athens was "wholly given to idolatry," Acts 17:16 ; and declared to the Athenians, that they ought not "to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device,"...
Acts 17:29

John the Baptist - He also adds, "I knew him not," but he had been told that He upon whom he Saw the Holy Spirit descend and remain was the Baptiser with the Holy Ghost; and he adds, "I Saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God
Hopefulness - He had gained one soul, and with prophetic vision Saw the land filled with ripened souls ready for the spiritual reaper. Further, may we not see that hope realized was the cause of the strong movement of His soul, when He exulted (ἠγαλλιάσατο, Luke 10:21) in Satan’s fall from heaven? It was a rejoicing of His innermost soul, because already He Saw potentially accomplished the object of His mission. This is the more remarkable when we recall that He more than any other Saw the reality of human corruption. In the most corrupt He Saw germs of good; and thus could win sinful women from their ways (Luke 7:50, John 8:11), and publicans from their grasping worldliness (Mark 2:14, Luke 19:9); and He could discover sufficient moral worth in a dying thief and murderer to be able to promise him rest in Paradise (Luke 23:43)
Mary of Cleophas - She, with the women which came with Jesus from Galilee, "prepared spices and ointments" on the sabbath eve (Luke 23:55-56), and when the sabbath was past "came to see the sepulchre" (Matthew 28:1) and "to anoint Him" with the "sweet spices they had bought" (Mark 16:1), and then "saw the vision of angels which said He was alive" (Luke 24:23)

"When the men of Israel Saw that they were in a strait, for the people were distressed, then the people did hide themselves in caves, and in thickets, and in rocks, and in high places, and in pits," 1 Samuel 13:6
Camp - That it failed not to produce effect upon the richly endowed and poetic mind of Balaam, appears from Numbers 24:2 ; "And Balaam lifted up his eyes and he Saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he took up his parable and said, How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel! As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river side, as the trees of lign aloes which the Lord hath planted, and as cedar trees beside waters

Manna - ...
Our translators and others make a plain contradiction in the relation of this account of the manna, by rendering it thus: "And when the children of Israel Saw it, they said one to another, It is manna; for they knew not what it was;" whereas the Septuagint, and several authors, both ancient and modern, have translated the text according to the original: "The Israelites seeing this, said one to another, What is it? מן חוא ; they could not give it a name. It is evident that the Israelites never Saw it before; for Moses says, "He fed thee with manna which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know," Deuteronomy 8:3 ; Deuteronomy 8:16 ; and it is very likely that nothing of the kind had ever been seen before; and by a pot of it being laid up in the ark, it is as likely that nothing of the kind ever appeared after the miraculous supply in the wilderness had ceased
ju'Das Iscar'Iot - -- (1) Judas, when he Saw the results of his betrayal, "repented himself. " ( Matthew 27:3-10 ) He Saw his sin in a new light, and "his conscience bounded into fury
Samuel - He Saw enough of God and man that terrible night to make him an old man and a seer before the morning. As he lay awake till the morning he Saw what was the wages of all that wickedness that had so horrified him to see and to hear in Eli's sons. He Saw, while yet a child, that the wages of such sin is death. And he Saw what would be the end of all that to Eli also, his father in the Lord. His purity of heart and his love for holy things prepared Samuel early to be a seer; and the sights he Saw both in heaven and in earth; both in God and in man, only perfected all his days what had been so early and so well begun. Hophni and Phinehas never Saw God. They had no mother, and therefore they never Saw God till they came to their awful end. All Samuel's past life had been spent in animating and purifying, and restoring the republic; but when he Saw that a kingdom was coming in, instead of meeting it with resistance and obstinacy and lifelong hostility, the great man bowed to the will of God and the will of Israel, and cast in his lot with the new dispensation

As the early churches grew in number and size, they Saw an increasing need to organize their affairs properly
Ste'Phen, - It would seem that, just at the close of his argument, Stephen Saw a change in the aspect of his judges, as if for the first time they had caught the drift of his meaning. He broke off from his calm address, and tumult suddenly upon them in an impassioned attack, which shows that he Saw what was in store for him. As he spoke they showed by their faces that their hearts "were being Sawn asunder," and they kept gnashing their set teeth against him; but still, though with difficultly, restraining themselves
Judas Iscariot - The astonishing miracles he Saw him perform left no room to doubt of the reality of his Master's pretensions, who had, indeed, himself in private actually accepted the title from his Apostles; and Judas must have been much disappointed when Jesus repeatedly refused the proffered royalty from the people in Galilee, after the miracle of feeding the five thousand, and again after his public procession to Jerusalem. But when Judas, who attended the whole trial, Saw that it turned out quite contrary to his expectations, that Jesus was capitally convicted by the council, as a false Christ and false prophet, notwithstanding he had openly avowed himself; and that he wrought no miracle, either for their conviction or for his own deliverance, as Judas well knew he could, even from the circumstance of healing Malchus, after he was apprehended; when he farther reflected, like Peter, on his Master's merciful forewarnings of his treachery, and mild and gentle rebuke at the commission of it; he was seized with remorse, and offered to return the paltry bribe of thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders instantly on the spot, saying, ‘I sinned in delivering up innocent blood;' and expected that on this they would have desisted from the prosecution
Satan - ) "And I Saw an angel come down from heaven having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand; and he laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after that he must be loosed a little season. "And I Saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them. And I Saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image neither had received his mark upon their foreheads or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years
Millennium - Of these passages, that upon which the greatest stress has been laid we believe to be the following:...

Resurrection of Christ - How could they have undertaken to remove the body? Frail and timorous creatures, people who fled as soon as they Saw him taken into custody; even Peter, the most courageous, trembled at the voice of a servant girl, and three times denied that he knew him.

Go Down - 28:12, Jacob Saw a “ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. The word may be used of “dismounting” from a donkey: “And when Abigail Saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass …” ( Woman - Jesus Saw women as persons. However, He Saw her as a person, so He was not restricted in His interaction by her sex or race (John 4:1-42 ). )...
Jesus' parable of the ten maidens, five foolish and five wise, hints at the way Jesus Saw and dealt with woman (Matthew 25:1-13 ). He Saw women as neither inferior nor superior, but simply as persons. He Saw their potential, their sinfulness, their strengths and weaknesses, and He dealt with them directly
Enoch - Enoch! He has not read the first chapter of the book till it is as clear as day to him that Enoch never Saw the book that goes under his ancient name; and besides, it is simply impossible that any man who had ever walked with God as Enoch walked could have written a single chapter of such an inflated and fantastic book. As soon as he Saw his first child in his image, and in his arms, Enoch became from that day a new man. But Enoch never Saw death, because he ever Saw God. 'He looked within and Saw God mirrored there
Nicodemus - Nicodemus had not slept soundly one single night, nor spent one single day without remorse and fear, ever since that scene when he Saw Jesus of Nazareth baptized by John, and coming up out of the water.

Mark, the Gospel of - ...
Mark's concern for detail, sometimes to the point of redundancy (see Mark 6:49-50 NIV, “when they Saw Him because they all Saw Him “He spoke to them and said ”), demonstrates his reliance upon eyewitness testimony. He ordered those who witnessed miracles not to tell anyone what they Saw, although silence was only a remote possibility (Mark 7:36 ). Although the disciples Saw the messianic secret, their vision was not be focused until the resurrection
Messiah - Israel probably Saw a close link between the anointed persons and God's spirit though the link is specifically mentioned only occasionally (2 Kings 2:9 ).

Leaven - Jesus Saw the Pharisees, the Sadducees and Herod as evil influences that spread through Israel as leaven spreads through a lump of dough
Damascus - By the same token, Damascus Saw armies march along the highways, often using Damascus as the staging area.

Look - ‘He looked up’ (ἀναβλέψας) and Saw Zacchaeus in his post in the tree (Luke 19:5). When the scribes brought Him a crafty question, ‘He perceived (κατανοήσας) their craftiness’ (Luke 20:23)—‘saw at a glance,’ the word might be rendered
Peniel - And who was it Jacob Saw, and with whom did he wrestle? If JEHOVAH, in his threefold character of person, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, how could this be, who is said to be invisible? If "no man hath seen God at any time," if, as JEHOVAH declared to Moses, (Exodus 33:20) "There shall no man see me and live," who could this be whom the patriarch Jacob Saw, conversed and wrestled with; but the Lord Jesus? Him whom though no man hath seen God at any time, yet "the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him
Ezekiel, Theology of - Israel suffered at least as much confusion when they Saw the temple of Yahweh go up in flames. Rather, he made the point that the Jews who Saw their temple go up in flames had no one to blame but themselves. Guilty of such outrageous behavior, the people hardly had a right to be surprised when they Saw judgment bearing down on their city and temple. There in the very house of God Ezekiel Saw several examples of Jerusalem's apostasy. ...

Carmel - On reaching, at last, the opposite summit, and coming out of a wood, we Saw the celebrated plain of Esdraelon beneath, with the river Kishon flowing through it; mounts Tabor and Little Hermon were in front, (east); and on the right, (south,) the prospect was bounded by the hills of Samaria
Zion or Sion - " "Walk about Zion, and go round about her; tell the towers thereof; mark ye well her bulwarks; consider her palaces, that ye may tell it to the generation following:" "The kings were assembled, they passed by together; they Saw it, and so they marveled; they were troubled, and hasted away," Psalm 48:2,12,13
Condemn - After Job's advisors had had their say, Elihu Saw that all three “had condemned Job” (Psalm 32:3 )
Year - , Luke 3:1 (dates were frequently reckoned from the time when a monarch began to reign); in Galatians 3:17 the time of the giving of the Law is stated as 430 "years" after the covenant of promise given to Abraham; there is no real discrepancy between this and Exodus 12:40 ; the Apostle is not concerned with the exact duration of the interval; it certainly was not less than 430 "years;" the point of the argument is that the period was very considerable; Galatians 1:18 ; 2:1 mark events in Paul's life; as to the former the point is that three "years" elapsed before he Saw any of the Apostles; in Galatians 2:1 the 14 "years" may date either from his conversion or from his visit to Peter mentioned in Galatians 1:18 ; the latter seems the more natural (for a full discussion of the subject see Notes on Galatians by Hogg and Vine, pp
Galatians, Letter to the - Paul Saw that such action was contrary to the gospel he preached, and he publicly rebuked Peter (Galatians 2:11-13)
Amos - Amos Saw that the nation was heading for terrible judgment (Amos 6:14; Amos 7:8-9)
John, the Gospel of - By telling about the life of Jesus in such a way that later believers Saw similarities with their own struggles, the Gospel's message took on greater significance for the Christian community. As the Revealer, Jesus revealed that he and the Father were one (John 10:30 ), so those who Saw Him (that is, received Him in faith) Saw the Father (John 14:9 )
Stephen - His judges looking steadfastly on him "saw his face as it had been the face of an angel," like that of Moses after talking with God on the mountain (Exodus 34:29-35; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ecclesiastes 8:1). ...
The fascination with which at first Stephen's beaming heavenly countenance had overawed his stern judges gave place to fury when they at last Saw the drift of his covert argument. They were cut to the heart (Greek: "sawn asunder") and gnashed on him with set teeth. There he Saw "standing (to help (Psalms 109:31), plead for and receive him, not as elsewhere sitting in majestic repose) the Son of man" (a phrase used elsewhere in New Testament by Jesus Himself)
Unconscious Faith - A still more remarkable recognition of an unconscious faith in Himself, in days long anterior to His manifestation in the world, is to be found in the saying, ‘Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he Saw it, and was glad’ (John 8:56). Not Abraham alone, but all the prophets in Israel, and even all ‘they that feared the Lord, and thought upon his name,’ rejoiced to see Christ’s day, and Saw it with joy; for all of them are included in the Divine saying, ‘They shall be mine in the day which I do make, even a peculiar treasure’ (Malachi 3:16-17). He ‘was the light of men,’ and those who Saw His light Saw Him, and rejoiced to see Him
Vine - Robinson Saw the vine trained near Hebron in rows eight or ten feet apart; when the stock is six or eight feet high, it is fastened in a sloping direction to a stake, and the shoots extend front one plant to another, forming a line of festoons; sometimes two rows slant toward each other and form an arch. On the road from Akka to Jerusalem, Robinson Saw an upper ledge of rock scooped into a shallow trough, in which the grapes were trodden, and by a hole in the bottom the juice passed into a lower vat three feet deep, four square (Bib
Judas Iscariot - He anticipated that He would, as on previous occasions, extricate Himself from the hands of His enemies; and when he Saw Him condemned, he was overwhelmed with remorse.

The autumn of 308 Saw a new edict issued, which began a perfect reign of terror for two full years, the most prolific in bloodshed of any in the history of Roman persecutions; and the vast majority of persons who in the East (for the persecution in the West had ceased with the accession of Constantine and usurpation of Maxentius) are celebrated as "martyrs under Diocletian" really suffered between 308 and 311
Locust - Shaw remarks, "Those which I Saw, were much bigger than our common grasshoppers, and had brown spotted wings, with legs and bodies of a bright yellow. Niebuhr remarks, "Locusts are brought to market on mount Sumara I Saw an Arab who had collected a whole sackful of the
Christian - As these Antiochenes Saw Barnabas and Saul standing day by day in the market-place or at the corners of the streets, and proclaiming that the Christ had come and that Jesus was the Christ, they caught up the word without understanding it, and bestowed the name of ‘Christians’ on these preachers and their followers. But the Antiochenes Saw that Christ’s disciples must be distinguished from the Jews and put into a category of their own. Paul Saw this clearly helped to it without doubt by his experiences at this very time
Physical - When, for instance, He Saw the sun rise and rain fall, and pondered on the extensive and complicated orderly system of physical means and ends to which sunrise and rainfall belong, He perceived in these occurrences manifestations of the immediate activity of God (Matthew 5:45), and He was too unerring a thinker not to know that God’s will and therefore God Himself must be immanent in the established system of things in which He conceived the Divine activity as displayed. And therefore it is that He Saw in such physical events as sunrise and rainfall manifestations of God’s beneficence and magnanimity. In sunrise and rainfall He Saw nothing but instances of the manifestation of the loving-kindness of God to all men, good and evil alike, and of His magnanimity towards evil and unjust men. All the ways in which He Saw the providential activities of God manifested in care for His creatures were ways in which the established orderliness of the physical world came into effect, as in the case of the rising of the sun and the falling of rain. He Saw in this order, and in the relations between God and men as therein revealed, conditions and opportunities provided for the manifestation of pure and high forms of religious life
Rebekah - Although that curse fell and her beloved son had to flee and she Saw his face no more, yet we forget the scheming, plotting woman in the loving wife and self-sacrificing mother
Athens - From whatever quarter the traveller arrived, the first thing he Saw was the Parthenon rearing its lofty head above the city and the citadel

Corn - And these lessons from the corn in the records of the Lord’s ministry may be greatly extended as we recall what He said about the sowing of the corn (parable of the Sower) and its reaping (the Tares and the Wheat); how He Saw in the white fields a vision of a great spiritual harvest only waiting to be gathered (John 4:35); how at Capernaum He turned the people’s minds from the barley bread of the previous day’s miracle to think of Himself as the Bread of Life (John 6); and said of the broken loaf at the Last Supper, ‘Take, eat, this is my body
Care, Careful - Paul Saw in the cares of married life a menace to spiritual zeal and labour (1 Corinthians 7:32)

Attraction - In these cases the attraction was visibly, audibly, and sensibly personal; the objects of it Saw, heard, and often felt the Man that is called JESUS (John 9:11, 1 John 1:1)
Top - ) To put a stiffening piece or back on (a Saw blade)
Morning - In the “morning” Jacob Saw that his bride was Leah rather than Rachel ( Witness - Usually the accused is faced with someone who either Saw or heard of his guilt: “And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it …” ( Court - Each house generally had a courtyard surrounded by a wall or else one adjoined several homes: “Nevertheless a lad Saw them, and told Absalom: but they went both of them away quickly, and came to a man’s house in Bahurim, which had a well in his court; whither they went down” ( Temple - Sometimes the definite article suffices to identify the “temple in Jerusalem”: “In the year that King Uzziah died I Saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple” ( Metempsychosis - Beside, how was it possible any person that Saw Christ, who did not appear to be less than thirty years old, should, according to the notion of the metempsychosis, conceive him to be John the Baptist, who had been so lately beheaded? Surely this apprehension must be grounded on the supposition of a proper resurrection
Johanan - While he was declaring God's will that they should stay where they were, Jeremiah Saw indications, in their countenance and manner, of disinclination to fulfill what they had so solemnly engaged
Maximus, Bishop of Jerusalem - 17), records the dramatic incident that the aged confessor Paphnutius of the Thebaid, whose mutilated form had attracted so much attention at Nicaea, when he Saw Maximus vacillating, took him by the hand and led him over to the small band of Athanasius's supporters, saying that it did not become those who bore the tokens of their sufferings for the faith to consort with its adversaries

But, at last one day,-That is none other than my long-lost son! And when he was yet a great way off, his father Saw him, and bad compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed, him. ...
The very finest point in all this history full of fine points, is this,-"When he was a great way off, his father Saw him, and had compassion on him
Head - The same figure was used in regard to the image which Nebuchadnezzar Saw and in which he was the head of gold. It was on this peak that Elijah and Elisha Saw the mighty power of GOD, and the enemies of GOD Saw the wrath of GOD, as well as His wonderful display of vengeance
New Jerusalem - Revelation 3:12 : ‘He that overcometh … I will write upon him … the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God’; Revelation 21:2 : ‘And I Saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God’ (cf. … And I Saw till the Lord of the sheep brought a new house greater and loftier than that first, and set it up in the place of the first which had been folded up: all its pillars were new, and its ornaments were new and larger than those of the first, the old one which He had taken away, and all the sheep were within it’ (cf. ’ The spiritual change too in the members of the Kingdom seems to be wrought in a mechanical fashion, for sin disappears suddenly rather by Divine fiat than by any gradual process, in striking contrast to what we Saw in Jubilees, Isaiah, and The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. It is a conception with an exclusively Jewish basis, but one that opens the way for the idea of a new era of blessedness, not on the present earth but in a renewed world; at the close of the Millennium the present order of things passes away-‘And I Saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them’ (Revelation 20:11); ‘And I Saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth are passed away’ (Revelation 21:1). : ‘And I Saw no temple therein: for the Lord God the Almighty, and the Lamb, are the temple thereof. ’ The old Jerusalem had been in a waterless region, but already Ezekiel Saw ‘waters’ issuing out ‘from under the threshold of the house eastward,’ and falling into the Kedron valley, and finally making their way to the Dead Sea (cf
Fig Tree - Something like this may be alluded to by the Prophet Hosea, when he says, ‘I Saw your fathers as בכורה , the first ripe, in the fig tree, at her first time,' Hosea 9:10 . Thus, in this very evangelist: "They said among themselves, Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? and when they looked, they Saw the stone was rolled away; for it was very great:" Mark 16:3-4 ; where its being very great is not assigned as a reason of its being rolled away, but of the women's wishing for some one to roll it away for them
Matthew, Gospel of - ...
As Jesus continued to cast out demons, heal the sick, calm storms and welcome sinners, people Saw that he was different from other Jewish teachers (8:1-9:17). Some Saw that he was the Messiah (9:18-34)
Son of Man - In one of his night visions, the prophet Saw “one like a son of man” (NAS) come on the clouds of heaven to appear before the throne of God. These sayings could be taken as referring to another than Jesus, but the Gospel writers unquestionably Saw Jesus as referring to Himself and connected these events with His second coming
Hour - He Saw that the glory would be won at a great cost, and the prospect of it brought distress of soul, and wrung from Him the cry, ‘Father, what shall I say? Save me from this hour. ’ But immediately He Saw through the pain the holy purpose of God realizing itself, and recovered His poise of soul and unflinching devotion
Abercius, Bishop of Hierapolis - For He was my Teacher, teaching me (διδάσκων, so Ramsay, omitted by Zahn) the faithful writings; who sent me to Rome to behold the King ( βασιλῆαν, so Ramsay, but Lightfoot βασίληαν, Zahn, βασιλῆ ἀναθρῆσαι ), and to see the Queen in golden robes and golden sandals, and there, too, I Saw a people bearing a shining seal (a reference to Baptism). And I Saw the plain of Syria and all its cities, even Nisibis, having crossed the Euphrates, and everywhere I had fellow-worshippers (συνομήθεις, so Lightfoot and Ramsay; συνοδίτην , Zahn, referring to Paul)
Sign - ...
Judges 6:17 (a) GOD Saw the genuine desire of Gideon to really know His will and therefore granted him the evidence he requested. When John Saw those seven angels with the seven plagues he knew there was trouble ahead for the inhabitants of the earth
Apocalyptic - The first sentence of the Book of Revelation is noteworthy in this connection: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ , which God gave to him , to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass ; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John : who bare record of all things that he Saw . they “sign-ify,” employing pictorial language which is also parabolic; an angelic intermediary commonly explains to the prophet the meaning of the message conveyed to him; and the prophet makes known to others his visions (“all that he Saw”)
Alexander - "For," added he, "whilst I was yet in Macedonia, I Saw the God of the Jews, who appeared to me in the same form and dress as the high priest at present, and who encouraged me and commanded me to march boldly into Asia, promising that he would be my guide, and give me the empire of the Persians. For it was their practice, when they Saw the affairs of the Jews in a prosperous state, to boast that they were descended from Manasseh and Ephraim; but when they thought it their interest to say the contrary, they failed not to affirm, and even to swear, that they were not related to the Jews
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. Agreeably to this, as they conceived, they Saw that Jesus conformed to their ceremonial institutions, he frequented the temple, he purified it from abuses by which it had been profaned, and they interpreted, in the sense most in harmony with their favourite notions, the declaration which he had publicly made, that he came not to destroy the law but to fulfil it
Gardens - This fact may perhaps give us some insight into the reason of the sudden and irresistible conviction which flashed on the mind of Nathanael, when our Saviour said to him, "When thou wast under the fig tree, I Saw thee. The place was so small, that he was perfectly certain no man but himself was there; and so completely defended, that none could break through, or look over, the fence; and, by consequence, that no eye was upon him, but the all-seeing eye of God; and, therefore, since Christ Saw him there, Nathanael knew he could be no other than the Son of God, and the promised Messiah
Baptism - Paul, the great interpreter of Christian belief and practice, Saw baptism as more than just a declaration of faith; he Saw it as having meaning that is tied up with the unique union that believers have with Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3; Galatians 3:27)
Jacob - Jacob the man of guile Saw Him at the top of the ladder; Nathanael, an Israelite without guile, Saw Him at the bottom in His humiliation, which was the necessary first step upward to glory. ...
Laban changed the terms frequently ("ten times") when he Saw Jacob's success, but in vain. ) Thus he Saw, "they that be with us (believers) are more than they that be with" our enemies (2 Kings 6:16-17). " Still God Saw need for calling him to a personal and domestic revival

French Prophets - They said they Saw the heaven open, the angels, paradise, and hell
Thebes - Though he Saw the city when it had sunk to quite secondary importance, he confirms the tradition of its early grandeur --its circuit of 140 stadia, the size of its public edifices, the magnificence of its temples, the number of its monuments, the dimensions of its private houses, some of them four or five stories high --all giving it an air of grandeur and beauty surpassing not only all other cities of Egypt, but of the world
Tiglath Pileser - " Probably it was an Assyrian altar which Ahaz copied, as a formal recognition of the gods of the sovereign nation (which required subject kings to set up in their capital "the laws of Asshur"), and a token of submission: the visit of Ahaz to Damascus (where "he Saw the altar") "to meet king Tiglath Pileser" accords with Tiglath Pileser's inscription that before quitting Syria he held his court at Damascus, and there received submission and tribute from the neighbouring sovereigns, among whom he mentions Pekah and Jahu-Khaz (Ahaz) of Judah
Hagar - But he Saw the unhappy condition of his countrymen in the light of his own experience

Achan - When Jericho was cursed, with all that was in it, Achan alone, in defiance of the curse, "saw" (compare Job 31:7; Genesis 3:6; James 1:14-15), coveted, took, and hid (see Genesis 3:8; following the first sin in the same awful successive steps downward) "a Babylonian garment" (compare Revelation 17:4-5), "two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold, fifty shekels" (Joshua 7:21)
Despondency - And we may not say that such influences were wholly without effect on our Lord; but in His case, as we learn from His own words, the great cause of despondency was the pressure on His spirit of what He Saw near before Him, His cross—that death in which He was (in St

Witness (2) - Yet what they literally Saw and heard was not the revelation itself, but only the means thereto. ’ Nevertheless multitudes ‘saw and heard’ Jesus and understood not. Alike for those who Saw Him, and for those who Saw Him not, the outward facts must be inwardly apprehended and inwardly tested
Samson - Samson's father and mother never Saw another happy day after that day when their son-miraculous birth, Nazarite vow and all-went down to Timnath and Saw a woman, a daughter of the Philistines, and said, Get her for me to wife! Then his father and his mother said to Samson, Is there never a woman of the daughters of thy brethren, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? Was it for this day they had sanctified their unborn child? In his misery Manoah declared that he would never all his days pray for anything after this, lest it should turn to his bane, as his prayer for a son had so turned. He would raise pity and anger wherewith to purge our hearts as we Saw Samson striving to do only what was right, with men of Belial all about him waiting for his halting, and dwelling on all his past wrong-doing. Only, over again against light and truth that Samson never Saw
Bethlehem - And I Joseph walked and I walked not; and I looked up into the sky and Saw the sky violently agitated; and I looked up at the pole of heaven, and I Saw it standing still and the birds of the air still; and I directed my gaze on the earth, and I Saw a vessel lying and workmen reclining by it and their hands in the vessel, and those who handled did not handle it, and those who presented it to the mouth did not present it, but the faces of all were looking up; and I Saw the sheep scattered and the sheep stood, and the shepherd lifted up his hand to strike them and his hand remained up; and I looked at the stream of the river, and I Saw that the mouths of the kids were down and not drinking; and everything which was being impelled forward was intercepted in its course
Tears - Luke 19:41 says that when He was come nigh, He Saw the city, and wept over it. The sins which that city had committed in killing the prophets and stoning them that were sent unto her—sins which were to culminate in a few days when He Himself was to be the victim of their malice—lay sore on the heart of Him who would gladly have gathered her children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and who Saw His salvation rejected

Isaac - Now the Philistines come to him, admitting that they Saw that Jehovah was blessing him, and they desired a covenant with him that he would do them no hurt

Flock - John, the beloved apostle, in his days, when admitted in that glorious vision of the Lord to see heaven opened, related to the church, that he Saw "a multitude, whom no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues

Repent - As God’s prophet preached to Nineveh, “… God Saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them …” (Jonah 3:10)
Lucian - He scoffs at the notion of a crucified man having taught them to regard all mankind as their brethren, the moment they should have abjured the gods of Greece; as if it were not just the most remarkable part of all this, that an obscure person in Jerusalem, who was deserted by every one, and executed as a criminal, should be able, a good century after his death, to cause such effects as Lucian, in his own time, Saw extending in all directions, and in spite of every kind of persecution
Hospitality - In the caravans, I have often seen with pleasure a mule-driver press those who passed to partake of his repast; and though the majority politely excused themselves, he gave, with an air of satisfaction, to those who would accept of it, a portion of his little meal of bread and dates; and I was not a little surprised when I Saw, in Turkey, rich Turks withdraw themselves into corners, to avoid inviting those who might otherwise have sat at table with them
Obed-Edom - In receiving the ark into his house, into his family, and among his people, he did, to all intents and purposes, receive Christ into his heart, and like the faithful descendant of the faithful Abraham, "saw the day of Christ afar off, rejoiced, and was glad

Glory - ...
Yet, while believers Saw in Jesus the glory of God, unbelievers did not (John 1:14; John 2:11; 1 Corinthians 2:8)
Paradise (2) - The popular mind Saw nothing attractive in the allegorizing which taught that Paradise meant ‘virtue,’ and the trees of the garden the thoughts of spiritual men
Colossians, Letter to the - Paul Saw that if this was so, Christ’s death was no longer able to cleanse people of sin and bring them to God; Christ was no longer the one mediator between God and humankind
Ahithophel - ' Ahithophel's extraordinary and superhuman subtlety may honestly enough have led him to think that he Saw in his counsel both prophecy, and policy, and payment back again into David's own bosom of all that David had done to other men, and to no man more than to Ahithophel himself. He has David and Absalom so much on his mind and on his heart that he draws a black border round Ahithophel's deathbed in these terrible words, and then leaves him: And when Ahithophel Saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his ass, and arose, and gat him home to his own house, to his city, and put his household in order, and hanged himself, and died, and was buried in the sepulchre of his father. Why is he no longer here? Why is he where he now is?...
And, then, what did David think when Ahithophel's terrible end was told him? And what did Bathsheba think? Did she curse David to his face when it was told her what her grandfather had done to himself? Did Uriah's wife fling David's psalms in his face in her agony of horror and self-disgust? Did she scream in her sleep till all Jerusalem heard her as she Saw in her sleep her grandfather's gallows at Giloh? Or was this prophecy fulfilled before it was spoken: In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, the house of David apart, and their wives apart, till there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David for sin and for uncleanness? And then did David go out to Giloh, and over the sepulchre of the suicide did David fall down and cry, past all consolation, O Ahithophel, the friend of my youth and my best counsellor, Ahithophel! Would God I had died for thee! O Ahithophel, mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance! If he did-then this would come in, The sacrifices of God are a broken heart. But what would you think if the first thing you Saw tomorrow morning was the suicide of some one who has been the victim of your lust or your lies? Pray, man, pray
David - in His Services - And He who looks not so much on the action as on the intention, He Saw in this also a man after His own heart. Nay, I suppose a father who loved his son aright and enough would almost rather leave all his work and all his hope unfinished if he Saw his son able and willing and chosen and called to take it up. I declare to you that I would lie down with a good will tonight and wrap my head out of sight in my winding-sheet, if I Saw my son standing ready to take up and repair and redeem my lost life. And if I Saw all my sons preparing for the ministry of Christ in the Church of Christ I would die in a far greater triumph than David's death-bed could possibly be
Jesus Christ - So completely were they united that Jesus could say that whoever Saw him Saw the Father (John 14:9; cf. He was inwardly troubled as he Saw his crucifixion drawing near, and he desired the sympathetic company of his closest friends during his time of spiritual conflict in Gethsemane the night before his death (1618168920_14; Luke 12:50; John 12:27). Those who lived closest to him, and who Saw more of him than anyone else, asserted that he never sinned (1 Peter 1:19; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 3:5)
Time, Meaning of - Thus the Babylonians Saw no organic, cause and effect, interconnection between human events. Because of their fatalism, they developed no true understanding of history and Saw no ultimate purpose in human striving. ...
Biblical humanity Saw themselves standing in a present moment of critical decision making, looking back upon the records of an imperfect obedience that spoke also of God's grace and forbearance, interpreting this as a warning and a renewed promise of grace for the future
Claims (of Christ) - ), and what they Saw bound them to Jesus for ever. Publicans and sinners drew near to Him (Matthew 9:10, Luke 15:1), not, as His enemies insinuated (Matthew 11:19 ||), because He was a sinner like themselves, but because they Saw in Him One who, with all His human sympathy, was so high above sin that He could stretch out a saving hand to those who were its slaves (Matthew 9:12 ||, Luke 7:36-50; Luke 19:2-10). And this holiness, which others Saw and felt in Him, Jesus claimed, and that in the most absolute fashion
the Thorn in Paul's Flesh - But the very fact that He who knew His servant through and through Saw it to be absolutely necessary to balance His servant's talents and prerogatives with such thorns and such buffetings, is a sure lesson to us that the humblest of saints is not safe from pride, nor the most heavenly-minded of men above dangerously delighting in the glory of this earth. In short, by far the best saint then living on the face of the earth was but half sanctified, and his Divine Master Saw that to be the case, and took steps accordingly. Chrysostom thought he Saw Hymenæus and Alexander in it
Apocrypha, New Testament - Now when a certain Jew Saw what Jesus was doing in his play on the sabbath, he at once went and told his father Joseph And when Joseph came to the place and Saw it, he cried out to him saying: “Why do you do on the sabbath what ought not to be done?' But Jesus clapped his hands and cried to the sparrows: “Off with you!' And the sparrows took flight and went away chirping. The Jews were amazed when they Saw this, and went away and told their elders what they had seen Jesus do
Joseph And Mary - But all that would seem but so many mocking words to her as she Saw nothing before her but an open shame, and, it might well be, an outcast's death. If this was the greatest work ever wrought by the power and the grace of Almighty God among the children of men, and if Mary's faith entered into it at all, then how great her faith must have been! Elizabeth Saw with wonder and with worship how great it was. She Saw the unparalleled grace that had come to Mary, and she had humility and magnanimity enough to acknowledge it
Jonah - ) "For the Lord Saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter; for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any (i. Hosea (Hosea 6:2) Saw the prophetical meaning of Jonah's entombment: "after two days will He revive us, in the third day He will raise us up;" primarily Israel, in a short period (Luke 13:32-33) to be revived from its national deadness, antitypically Messiah, raised on the third day (John 2:19; 1 Corinthians 15:4); as Israel's political resurrection typifies the general resurrection, of which Christ's resurrection is the firstfruits (Isaiah 26:19; Ezekiel 37:1-14; 1 Corinthians 15:22-23; Daniel 12:2). ...
God's pathetic and condescendingly touching appeal winds up the book; God's tender accents are the last that reach the ear, the abruptness of the close making them the more impressive "thou hast had pity on the gourd for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night and perished in a night; and should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than six score thousand persons (120,000 children under four, Deuteronomy 1:39) that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand (giving a total, if the children be a fifth, of 600,000 population), and also much cattle?" God Saw the root of faith in Jonah, therefore corrected his perverse self will by an appropriate discipline
Jordanis, Historian of the Goths - He Saw the growing antagonism between Goths and Romans and Theodoric's efforts to lessen it. He Saw the king trying to combine the old and the new elements and to form a kingdom in which both could live with mutual respect. Here Jordanis first Saw the 12 books of the Gothic history, and was allowed by the steward of Cassiodorius a second perusal of the work
Claudius - Augustus Saw some good in him, but kept him from the public gaze. The year 51 Saw the danger of famine and the Emperor’s relief measures
Peter - Jesus immediately Saw the man’s leadership qualities and gave him a new name, Peter (or Cephas), meaning ‘a rock’ (John 1:42). Yet he Saw that the church was something greater than the temple, and he readily accepted Samaritans into the church on the same bases as the Jews (Acts 8:14-17)
Tomb, Grave, Sepulchre - … In another of these monuments I Saw the sand floor full of rotten clouts, shivering in every wind, and taking them up, I found them to be those dry bones’ grave-clothes’ (Arabia Deserta, i. In Lebanon the present writer Saw a tomb which had been excavated in the rock-face from a point below the normal level of the soil
Election - The community of Essenes at Qumran Saw themselves as an elect remnant whose purity and faithfulness presaged the Messianic Age. ...

Miracles - But even if these can be explained as having natural causes, they were still miracles to those who Saw them. ...
Nevertheless, it is clear that many of those who Saw Jesus’ miracles were filled with awe and glorified God (Matthew 9:8; Luke 5:26; Luke 7:16; Luke 9:43)
Law, Ten Commandments, Torah - ...
Paul, like Jesus, Saw the Law fulfilled in the command to love (Romans 13:8 ; Galatians 5:13 ). Paul Saw the Law as no longer to be viewed legalistically
Herod - The sin of Herod, as of Pilate, in relation to Jesus, is clearly implied, and evidently seemed as heinous to the early believers as did his crime against John to the Baptist’s followers, who Saw in the disasters of his Arabian war (a. ‘He Saw it pleased the Jews’ is the explanation given of this severity in Acts (acts 12:3), and there is no reason to doubt its substantial accuracy
Descent Into Hell (Hades) - Rather, it is the crucifixion—which the disciples actually Saw and experienced in all of its horrorthat is developed in sacrificial language as the divine punishment and saving event
Palm (of Hand) - 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” ( Micaiah - Then, being adjured in Jehovah's name, Micaiah said "I Saw all Israel scattered
Hagar - at which one Saw God and lived
Women - Paul Saw in it a reflection of the woman’s role in God’s order for church and society (1 Corinthians 11:3; 1 Corinthians 11:7-9), though he did not see it as meaning that she was inferior to the man (1 Corinthians 11:11-12)
Unknown God - 4) says that on the road from the Phaleric port to the city he had noticed ‘altars of gods called unknown, and of heroes’ (βωμοὶ δὲ θεῶν τε ὀνομαζομένων ἀγνώστων καὶ ἡρώων), which may quite well mean that he Saw several altars bearing inscriptions similar to that mentioned by St
Virgin - ...
When the virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus, Matthew Saw this as a greater fulfilment of the words that Isaiah spoke to Ahaz

Fig Tree - Matthew's account of this transaction is, that when Jesus "saw this fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing but leaves only; and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee hence forward for ever: and presently the fig tree withered away
Turtle - ...
I am not to be told that the custom hath arisen from the subject of our Lord's baptism, where it is said that "when Jesus went up straightway out of the water, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he Saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him
Father - The word is also applied to teachers: “And Elisha Saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof …” (2 Kings 2:12)
Strength - When used in such contexts, the word may be translated “valiant”: “And there was sore war against the Philistines all the days of Saul: and when Saul Saw any strong man, or any valiant man, he took him unto him” ( Behmenists - At length, seriously considering within himself that speech of our Saviour, "Your heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him," he was thereby awakened to desire that promised Comforter; and, continuing in that earnestness, he was at last, to use his own expression, "surrounded with a divine light for seven days, and stood in the highest contemplation and kingdom of joys!" After this, about the year 1600, he was again surrounded with a divine light and replenished with the heavenly knowledge; insomuch as, going abroad into the fields, and viewing the herbs and grass, by his inward light, he Saw into their essences, uses, and properties, which were discovered to him by their lineaments, figures, and signatures
Child - Good men, in opposition to the wicked, are also thus denominated; the children of Seth's family, in opposition to those of Cain: "The sons of God Saw the daughters of men," Genesis 6:2
Locust - Shaw describes at large the numerous swarms and prodigious broods of those locusts which he Saw in Barbary
Wine - Daniel and the Rechabites Saw good reason for total abstinence from wine, Jeremiah 35:14 Daniel 1:8 ; and the sentiment of Paul, on a mater involving the same principles, is divinely commended to universal adoption, Romans 14:21 1 Corinthians 8:13
Jonah - God Saw that the repentance was real, and He turned from the destruction that was predicted
Evil - They Saw that the evils of conflict, disaster and destruction were often God’s means of punishing the wicked (1 Samuel 16:14; Jeremiah 35:17; Amos 3:6)
Prochorus, a Deacon - His notions of the situation, size, and general characteristics of the island, which he certainly never Saw, are most extraordinary
Old Testament (i. Christ as Fulfilment of) - He Saw in the OT a universal ideal of society, and the principles for a programme of its establishment. Further, the disciples, after they understood the Scriptures, also Saw the necessity of the death and resurrection. Is it likely that Jesus had any less insight into the meaning of the history of His race, and the nature of the work which He had to do, than the prophet of the Exile? The teachings of Jesus show that He Saw that the ideal state of society could come only by means of a contest with human selfishness and victory over it. Without doubt, Jesus Saw in the OT Scriptures those experiences narrated and depicted which were necessary as the conditions of accomplishing the work which belonged to the establishment of the Kingdom of God. He Saw that the goal was certain to be reached, and that the OT representation of the toils, sufferings, and experiences necessary for the accomplishment of the labour which He was to perform concerned Him more fully than they concerned any one else, because the chief place in the Kingdom was His
Eli - And Eli Saw all that preparing to come about, and preparing to come about soon. What! not know the Lord, and they born and brought up within the very precincts of the Lord's house! Were not the first sounds they heard the praises of God in His sanctuary? Were not the first sights they Saw their father in his robes beside the altar with all the tables, and the bread, and the sacrifices, and the incense round about him? And yet, there it is in black and white; there it is in blood and tears-'The sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord. What with judging all Israel, and what with sacrificing and interceding for all Israel, Eli never Saw his children till they were in their beds. Hophni and Phinehas were the only children in all Israel who Saw the temple every day and paid no attention to it
Balaam - Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel; according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!' And on the top of Peor, that looketh toward Jeshimon, Balaam positively Saw the day of Christ Himself afar off. Had Balaam not been given over to making a great name for himself and a great fortune; had this prophet been working out his own salvation with fear and trembling, instead of making beautiful pictures of salvation, and astonishing people with his eloquence on salvation, then Balaam would have put on strength when he Saw that long string of camels on their way to his house. And when the ass Saw the angel of the Lord she thrust herself into the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall. But, when Balaam Saw Israel shining in her tents below, his curses all stuck in his throat
Red Sea - That the destruction of the Egyptians was partly occasioned by lightning and thunderbolts from the presence of the Lord; exactly corresponding to the psalmist's sublime description: "The waters Saw thee, O God, the waters Saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled. "But in contradiction to this," says Bruce, "I must confess, that I never in my life, and I have seen the whole extent of it, Saw a weed of any sort in it. ' I Saw one of these, which, from a root nearly central, threw out ramifications in a nearly central form, measuring twenty-six feet diameter every way
Containers And Vessels - ) Saw advances in the production of stoneware as humans became producers of food rather than merely gatherers and hunters. ) Saw the introduction of bowls with tapering or rounded sides
Daniel - He must have been about 84 years old when he Saw the visions (Daniel 10-12) concerning his people, extending down to the resurrection and the last days. )...
The objection to Daniel on the ground that Susa, or at least its palace, was not built when Daniel Saw the vision there, rests on Pliny alone, who alleges it to have been built by Darius Hystaspis
Abraham - Three months after this, as Abraham sat in his tent door, he Saw three men approaching. But as not even ten righteous persons were found in it, for whose sake the city would have been spared, the threatened destruction fell upon it; and early next morning Abraham Saw the smoke of the fire that consumed it as the "smoke of a furnace" (Genesis 19:1-28 )
Fall, the - With opened eyes they Saw themselves dead to God, to each other, and to the created natural order. They Saw and understood they were immobilized, incapable to stand and serve, ready, able productive, and blessed before their covenant God
John the Baptist - From what John heard and Saw at the baptism of Jesus, and from intercourse with Jesus, he had learnt that his mission was not only to announce the Messiah’s coming, and to prepare His way by calling men to repent, but also to point Him out to men. Malachi 4:5 ), the herald of the day of which he Saw only the dawn
Appreciation (of Christ) - Inspite of all the enmity written there; remembering that there were those who Saw in Him an ally of Beelzebub (Matthew 12:24), working with the devil’s aid; that some called Him ‘a gluttonous man, a wine-bibber, friend of publicans and sinners’ (Matthew 11:19); that lawyers, and Pharisees, and Sadducees were ever watching to trip Him (Matthew 22:15), and plotting with Herodians (Matthew 22:16) to destroy Him; that the Galilaean cities, which should have known Him best,—Chorazin, Bethsaida, Capernaum (Matthew 11:21; Matthew 11:23), and even Nazareth,—rejected Him (Luke 4:28 f. And the multitude at Nain, when they Saw the dead raised, had no hesitation in crying—‘A great prophet is risen among us’ (Luke 7:16)
Fish, Fisher, Fishing - Forty years ago Furrer found only a single boat; Lortet Saw three in 1875 and six in 1880; Frei counted nine in 1886, and the present writer Saw the same number in 1894, while in 1899 he noted fourteen; and no doubt the number has increased since then
Mary - Angels made this event known to shepherds, who were in the fields near Bethlehem, and these came in the night to Joseph and Mary and Saw the child laying in the manger, and paid him their adoration. There she Saw all that was transacted; followed him to Calvary; and stood at the foot of his cross with an admirable constancy and courage
Poverty (2) - That Christ had the true Israelite contempt for money and commercial prosperity is at least hinted in the story of the Temptation (Matthew 4:10, Luke 4:8), and shown quite plainly in the parable of the Labourers in the Vineyard: ‘It is my will to give unto this last even as unto thee,’ Matthew 20:15,—a principle which, as Ruskin Saw (Unto this Last), is a defiance of political economy as ordinarily understood. ’ To take Matthew 26:11, ‘Ye have the poor always with you,’ to mean that the existence of poverty must be acquiesced in, is to forget all that was said about mercifulness and liberality by Him who, when He Saw the multitudes, ‘had compassion on them’ (Matthew 9:36; Matthew 14:14)
Promise (2) - commences and concludes his Gospel with episodes (Luke 1:45-55; Luke 1:67-69; Luke 2:25-38; Luke 24:25-28; Luke 24:44-47) intended to show how men Saw, or failed to see, in Jesus the Christ foreshadowed in the Scriptures, and Jn. And it was precisely because the priests and scribes, in their blind attachment to their own interpretation of the promise, Saw, in His comparative carelessness about the traditional view and His frequent insistence upon a purely spiritual interpretation, a danger to their own designs, that they resolved upon His death
Paul Apprehended of Christ Jesus - Hopeful Saw Faithful burned to ashes; Christiana remembered all her surly carriages to her husband; and Mercy came just in time to see Christiana packing up. Just as I am writing these lines this letter reaches me: "When the Lord opened my eyes the sight I Saw broke me down completely. "And they that were with me Saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of Him that spake with me
the Ethiopian Eunuch - ...
Now, what the Ethiopian eunuch Saw and heard in Jerusalem, and took home with him from Jerusalem, would almost entirely depend on the introductions he brought with him, and on the houses to which he took those introductions. You may make use of your own knowledge of the condition of Jerusalem, and of the rank of the eunuch, and of his religious errand, to choose for yourselves just where the Ethiopian eunuch was lodged, and just in what light he Saw the life of Jerusalem. ...
"And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch Saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing
Absalom - He Saw him as his enemies then Saw him, and as infidels and scoffers see him now. 'It helped me, too,' says Santa Teresa in her happy 'Life of Herself'; 'It helped me much that I never Saw my father and my mother respect anything but goodness
Matthias the Successor to Judas Iscariot - " And you will all recall Sir Thomas Browne's noble protestation: "Now, honestly, I bless myself that I never Saw Christ nor His disciples. For then had my faith been thrust upon me, nor should I enjoy that greater blessing pronounced to all that believe and Saw not.

Ephesians, Letter to the - Paul Saw that the church in Ephesus would be troubled by false teaching (Acts 20:29-30), and such teaching seems to have arisen by the time Paul was first imprisoned in Rome (Acts 28:16; Acts 28:30; cf

Pilate - When he Saw all this would not satisfy the Jews, and that they even threatened him in some manner, saying, he could be no friend to the emperor if he suffered Jesus to be set at liberty, John 19:12-15 , he caused water to be brought, and washed his hands before all the people, and publicly declared himself innocent of the blood of that just person, Matthew 27:23-24
Casuistry - Every man may be, and perhaps is, sensible, that his errors are to be ascribed, not to his having been at a loss to know what he should have done, but to his deliberately or hastily violating what he Saw to be right, or to his having allowed himself to confound, by vain and subtle distinctions, what, in the case of any one else, would have left in his mind no room for hesitation

Christ in Mohammedan Literature - ...
One day he Saw an old man sitting by the grave of his son. When Jesus and the Apostles Saw it, they offered thanks to God. He did so, and then they Saw on the tray a fish without bones from which oil was flowing, and round it were all kinds of vegetables, but there was no garlic or leeks.

Mental Characteristics - On the one hand, He always Saw things just as they are, undistorted by His own feelings, unconcealed by custom or convention, neither excused nor glorified, if faulty, by their associations, nor hackneyed or degraded by their common abuse. Probably the scribe to whom this was first spoken never found himself in circumstances that were similar; but if he gained the higher standpoint which this story gave him, and Saw into the very heart of truth in that one case, he would be able, like thousands of others who have heard the story since, the better to answer his own question in his own circumstances. He looked on the ‘flower in the crannied wall’—no more—and Saw it with such penetrating insight that to Him it was eloquent of ‘what God and man is. One most important consequence of this was that He always Saw whatever good there was in any man, and paid comparatively little heed to the evil which might be there also

Session - Besides, we find simply ‘is at the right hand’ in Romans 8:34, 1 Peter 3:22; in other places He is represented in a different attitude, as standing (Acts 7:56), walking (Revelation 2:1; Revelation 3:4; Revelation 14:4); and John (Revelation 1:13) Saw Him ‘girt about at the breasts with a golden girdle’ (which was ‘worn in this manner by priests when they were engaged in active service’ [4]). that he Saw Jesus as risen from His throne and in the act of coming to help His suffering servant and faithful martyr
Star (2) - The detail about the star ‘which they Saw at its rising’ going ‘before them, until it came and stood still above (the place) where the child was,’ is, doubtless, not intended to be understood literally. For when it is said, “God Saw the light that it was good” (Genesis 1:4), it is thereby taught that the Holy One (Blessed be He) contemplated the generation of the Messiah and his works, before the world had been created, and that He concealed the light for the Messiah and his generation beneath His throne of glory

Then were the disciples glad when they Saw the Lord

Euchites - The soul of him who was "spiritual," as they boasted themselves to be, was changed into the divine nature; he could see things invisible to ordinary men; and so some of them used to dance by way of trampling on the demons which they Saw, a practice from which they were called Choreutae. The things they Saw in their dreams they took for realities, and boasted that they then acquired a knowledge of future events, could see the condition of departed souls, and could read men's hearts
Jeroboam - Ahijah's eyes, like a flame of fire, Saw, naked and open, all that was hidden so deep in Jeroboam's heart; and he heard, as with God's own ears, all that Satan said to Jeroboam in his heart. Ahijah watched Jeroboam at his work, and he Saw, till he could not be silent, that Jeroboam was fast undermining the walls of Jerusalem in his heart, all the time that he was receiving praise and promotion for building those walls up with his hands
James the Lord's Brother - I never once Saw what was for thirty years, day and night, staring me in the face, if I had not been stone-blind. But, all the time, we Saw it not till it was all over, and it was too late
Nation (2) - There were even some of the Pharisees who, whether because they were satisfied with the measure of religious liberty accorded under the Imperial administration, or because they shut their eyes to the facts (John 8:33), or because they Saw in the foreign yoke the discipline of God, resented any movement towards national independence; and perhaps it was some of these who associated themselves with the Herodians in Matthew 22:16. The Pharisees pursued Him from the first because they instinctively Saw that the tendency of His teaching (see Nationality) was to break the bonds their traditions had woven, and to act as a solvent on the rigidity of national isolation, which was the only thing left to their pride
Hebrew - The medieval period Saw a great flowering of Hebrew literature of all kinds, especially commentaries and philosophical works

Ahaz - He adopted the Babylonian sun dial (which he probably erected in the temple, perhaps in "the middle court," where Isaiah Saw it and gave its shadow as a sign to Hezekiah), becoming acquainted with it through the Assyrians (2 Kings 20:11; 2 Kings 20:4; 2 Kings 20:9)
Flesh - Greek philosophers Saw the soul, heart, or mind distinguished from and superior to the flesh

Earth, Land - David Saw those who sought to destroy him as being judged by God and as going down to “the lower parts of the earth” (Psalm 63:9 )
Lord's Day - 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
Nero - The later days of Nero Saw the rise of the Jewish insurrection against the Roman power, which culminated in the destruction of Jerusalem and the massacre of countless Jews in a
Light - In the first creative act, "God Saw that the light was good" (Genesis 1:3 )
Stephen - Its members condemned him to be guilty of blasphemy: he had justified, not denied or even softened down, his previous utterances; they rushed upon him, and, when he stated that he Saw the heavens opened and Jesus standing to welcome him on the right hand of God, the vision did, in this view, but increase the blasphemy, so they dragged him out of the city and stoned him
Lamb - ‘He looked to see power and force, whereby the foes of his faith should be destroyed, and he Saw love and gentleness by which they should be conquered’ (G
Spitting - The offender instantly not only begged pardon for what every one Saw was unintentional, but kissed his beard in token of respect
Good - And God Saw every thing that he had made, and ...
behold, it was very good
Flesh - Pfleiderer and others have sought to explain this peculiar usage by supposing that in the Pauline anthropology there was a fundamental dualism between ‘flesh’ and ‘spirit,’ and that the Apostle Saw in the physical or sensuous part of man the very source and principle of sin
Blindness (2) - Matthew tells us that there was brought to Jesus one possessed with a devil, blind and dumb; and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both Saw and spake
Temple, the - The aged men, who had seen the first house, wept when they Saw the foundations of this house laid
Heart - 6:5: “And God Saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually
Magnify - So gâdal can mean “to boast”: “Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? or shall the Saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it?” ( Celsus, Polemical Adversary of Christianity - He challenges the evidence of Christianity, and asks, "Who Saw the dove lighting on the head of Jesus after His baptism?" As to the Resurrection, he makes the remark which has been copied by Renan and others, that it was Mary Magdalene, "a fanatical woman," who was the first witness of the resurrection, according to all the accounts (ii
Philosophy - If it had not been for revelation, we should have known no more of the Deity than the Heathen philosophers knew before: and to what did their knowledge amount? They felt the necessity of a First Cause, and they Saw that that Cause must be intrinsically good; but when they came to systems, they never went farther than the point from which they first set out, that evil is not good, and good is not evil
Lebanon - Clarke, in the month of July, Saw some of the eastern summits of Lebanon, or Anti-Libanus, near Damascus, covered with snow, not lying in patches, as is common in the summer season with mountains which border on the line of perpetual congelation, but do not quite reach it, but with that perfect white, smooth, and velvet-like appearance, which snow only exhibits when it is very deep,—a striking spectacle in such a climate, where the beholder, seeking protection from a burning sun, almost considers the firmament to be on fire
Jehu - As he approached that city, a centinel gave notice that he Saw a troop coming in great haste; on which Joram despatched an officer to discover who it was: but Jehu, without giving the latter any answer, ordered him to follow in his rear

Mount Mountain - ’ Finally, the Apostle is ‘carried in the spirit to a mountain great and high’ (Revelation 21:10), from which as a vantage-ground of elevation he Saw ‘the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God
Judgment - ...
People who considered themselves good, who heard Jesus’ teachings and Saw his mighty works yet deliberately rejected him, condemned themselves
Linus (1) - For they Saw the apostle standing upright at the top of his cross crowned by angels with roses and lilies and receiving from our Lord a book out of which he reads to his disciples
Prodigal Son - In that of the Good Samaritan, the Priest and the Levite Saw no duty they owed to the wounded Jew, whereas the heart of the Samaritan—a member of a despised race—responded at once to the demands of the situation
Rabbulas, Bishop of Edessa - Rabbûlas Saw clearly that the evil must be attacked at his source in the works of Diodore and Theodore
Kings, Books of - ...
Rehoboam, Solomon’s son, Saw the judgment of God fall when the kingdom split into two
Metaphor - διαπρίειν means ‘to Saw through,’ used literally in Aristophanes, metaphorically particularly in late and ecclesiastical Greek). Philippians 1:30 : ‘having the same conflict which ye Saw in me and now hear to be in me. According to Jewish tradition, Moses Saw in a clear mirror but all the prophets in a dark one
Propitiation (2) - They evidently got this impression from our Lord Himself, who Saw the OT fulfilled in Himself (Matthew 11:10; Matthew 13:14-15; Matthew 21:42, but esp. He Saw His life and death related to Moses (the Law) and all the Prophets. The great space given to the circumstances connected with our Lord’s death seems to show that the Evangelists Saw in it the culmination of His redemptive work
Gregorius (14) Nazianzenus, Bishop of Sasima And of Constantinople - The storm continued 22 days, during which they Saw no chance of deliverance. When they were being defeated, Gregory, feeling the honour of Athens at stake, came to the rescue, but soon Saw their real object, and left them to join his friend ( Orat. "(1) The longing he had for them and which he Saw they had for him; (2) the white hairs and feeble limbs of his holy parents—the father who was to him as an angel, and the mother to whom he owed also his spiritual birth. Gregory Saw from his reply that it had given pain, in spite of his care
Hermas, Known as the Shepherd - Hermas tells that he who had brought him up had sold him to Rome to a lady named Rhoda; that after a considerable time he renewed his acquaintance with her and began to love her as a sister; that he Saw her one day bathing in the Tiber and assisted her out of the water ; that admiring her beauty he thought how happy he should be if he had a wife like her in person and disposition. Then the heavens were opened and he Saw Rhoda saluting him from the sky. In another vision, a year after, he Saw again the lady and her book, and received the book to copy, but still it conveyed no idea to his mind. In subsequent visions we have a different account of the matter; he sees in each a woman more and more youthful in appearance, whom he is taught to identify with the church of his former vision; and it is explained that he Saw her old at first because the spirit of Christians had been broken by infirmity and doubt, and afterwards more youthful as by the revelations made him their spirit had been renewed
Paul (2) - —The vision that he Saw was of Christ glorified. It is in this double aspect that the exalted Form that he Saw made such an intense impression upon the Apostle. It was as if he clasped to his heart the image of Christ that he Saw, and it entered into him and possessed him. Or, conversely, it might be said that the extended arms of the Christ whom he Saw embraced and enfolded himself
Perfection (of Jesus) - There He looked into the Father’s purpose, till the glory that lay beyond and the love that shone through it kindled their reflexion on His face, till He Saw His way so clearly that He could never miss it, never be in any hesitation about it,—the way, amid the conflicting passions of men, to His throne on Calvary. When Jesus Saw Himself as the long-looked-for Messiah, all the worldly hopes that clung to the office in the thoughts of Rabbi or people flowed in upon Him. He Saw in the Temple’s outcast children marks of good. It was the inward rapture of a heart that Saw, beyond the darkness, light; beyond the hatreds and crimes of men, the love of the Father turning sin to blessed account
Hell - And I Saw there something like an invisible cloud; for by reason of its depth I could not look over, and I Saw a flame of fire blazing brightly, and things like shining mountains circling and sweeping to and fro. The passage begins at § 20, and follows immediately on the description of Heaven, with these words:...
‘And I Saw another place over against that, very dark: and it was the place of punishment: and those who were punished there and the punishing angels had a dark raiment like the air of the place
Caesarea Philippi - Jesus, however, clearly foresaw a still greater test in the near future. It cannot therefore be treated abstractedly as something separate from Peter, but must be regarded as a manifestation and, in its measure, a realization of the character which Jesus Saw in Peter when He gave him his name. Jesus Saw its strength, and chose the man for the work He had for him to do. With His conception of the spiritual nature of His work and the consequent character of His Church, Jesus Saw the necessity of His completed work and final exaltation in order to the full realization of His Messianic functions in such a Messianic community, and hence speaks of its building as a future event (Acts 2:36, Romans 1:4)
Paul - He"saw" the Lord in actual person (Acts 9:17; Acts 22:14; Acts 9:17-18; Acts 26:16; 1 Corinthians 15:8; 1 Corinthians 9:1), which was a necessary qualification for apostleship, so as to be witness of the resurrection. He Saw only Peter and James, being introduced by Barnabas not to seek their sanction but to inform them of Jesus' independent revelation to him (Acts 9:26-29; Galatians 1:18-19). These are "the sure mercies" (the holy or gracious promises, osia Greek, chacid Hebrew) of the covenant made with David; hence (Psalms 16:10) he anticipates "Thou wilt not suffer Thy Holy ("Gracious": chacid , "in God's favour": John 1:14; John 1:16, osion ) One to see corruption," which cannot apply to David (for he Saw corruption) and can only apply to Christ
Esther - I leave you to imagine what were the prayers and psalms that Mordecai offered up with his window open towards Jerusalem, as he Saw all Esther's election, and promotion, and coronation, and all her splendour and all her power. And all because, under God, Esther had her opportunity pointed out to her till she Saw it and seized it. Your most commonplace, most monotonous, most uninteresting, and most every-day circle so shines, if you only Saw it aright
Hell - And I Saw there something like an invisible cloud; for by reason of its depth I could not look over, and I Saw a flame of fire blazing brightly, and things like shining mountains circling and sweeping to and fro. The passage begins at § 20, and follows immediately on the description of Heaven, with these words:...
‘And I Saw another place over against that, very dark: and it was the place of punishment: and those who were punished there and the punishing angels had a dark raiment like the air of the place
Rufinus of Aquileia - In Egypt he Saw and heard Didymus, who wrote for him a book on the questions suggested by the death of infants (Hieron. He Saw also the hermits, whose teaching he prized still more—Serapion and Menites and Paulus; Macarius the disciple of Anthony, and the other Macarius, Isidore, and Pambas. About the time Rufinus arrived he dreamed he Saw a ship coming from the East to Italy which would bring him aid, and this he interpreted of Rufinus
James - Some months later the Lord Saw Zebedee, James, and John, in the ship mending their nets. ...
James and John "saw" some actual collision between the Samaritans and the messengers who were sent before and whom our Lord and His apostles followed presently; just as Elijah in the same Samaria had called for fire upon the offenders face to face (2 Kings 1:10; 2 Kings 1:12)
Virgin Virginity - A later age Saw the conditions of their own time in the Apostolic Age. Even the deaconesses are not required to be unmarried (1 Timothy 3:11); and, as we Saw above, the younger widows are to marry again so that they may not be a burden on the Church funds, and so as to save them from sexual temptation
Insight - What He Saw there He could convey to the souls of His hearers only by the use of words that had been coined to connote totally different conceptions. When Nathanael, struck by Jesus’ recognition of him under the figtree, hails Him as the Son of God, Jesus says: ‘Because I said unto thee, I Saw thee under the figtree, believest thou?… Verily, verily, I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man’ (John 1:50, John 1:51)
Lazarus - He Saw not the way, but He was waiting for God to open it up; and suddenly a message reached Him from the other Bethany that Lazarus was sick (John 11:3). After three days decomposition set in, and when they Saw its ghastly disfigurement on the face, they abandoned hope
Shimei - When Shimei Saw David escaping for his life out of Jerusalem, Satan entered into Shimei, and he came forth and cursed at David as he passed by. ...
Abishai looked up and Saw a dead dog barking and biting out of his own kennel-door in Bahurim that day
the Woman Who Took Leaven And Hid it in Three Measures of Meal - And the more He tried to put the kingdom of God into this and that parable, the more He Saw other things in that inexhaustible kingdom for which no parable had as yet been provided. Now our Lord Saw, only far too well, that evil leaven already at work in His twelve disciples
Simon Magus - Now, Simon Magus, like everybody else in Samaria, was immensely impressed with all that he Saw and heard. Simon Magus Saw that the apostles, doctrine was true, and he received the same so far; but the groundwork was all along wanting; that is to say, his denial of himself was all along wanting
Crucifixion - It was this form of cross that the Fathers had in view when in the crossing of Jacob’s hands as he blessed Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48:13-14) they Saw a prophecy of the Crucifixion. At the moment all was dark to the disciples; but when their minds were illumined by the Holy Spirit, they Saw not only ‘the sufferings that befell Messiah’ but ‘the glories that followed these’ (1 Peter 1:11)
the Ten Virgins - EVERYTHING that our Lord Saw on the earth immediately made Him think of the kingdom of heaven. ' And thus it was that when our Lord and His disciples were called to that marriage where the original of this parable took place, as soon as He Saw the five wise virgins admitted to the marriage, and the five foolish virgins shut out, He turned to the twelve and said,-The kingdom of heaven is just like that
Peter - His Divine Master Saw in Simon latent qualities of courage, and fidelity, and endurance, and evangelical humility that never as yet had fully unfolded themselves amid the untoward influences round about his life. But though they both Saw and shared in the miraculous draught of fishes on the sea of Galilee, Peter alone remembered his sins, and broke down under them, in the presence of the power and grace of Christ
the Queen of Sheba - And she Saw and heard and took home in her heart far more than her very highest expectations. Had I been a king, and had I been shown through Solomon's temple, and through his palace, and through all that the Queen of Sheba Saw in Jerusalem, I know only too well what would have been in my heart
Apostle - Some have supposed that Saul Saw the person of Jesus, when he was converted, near the city of Damascus; but others, who conceive from the history of this event, that this could not have been the case, as he was instantly struck blind, are of opinion that the season, when his Apostolic qualification and commission were completed, was that mentioned by himself, ...

Sign - Though the just-fed crowd Saw Jesus' feeding of the five thousand (John 6:2-13 ) as a sign that Jesus was a prophet (John 6:14 ), the sign points to Jesus as the life-giving bread which alone can satisfy (John 6:35 )

"Faith" God Saw to be the ruling motive of his flight more than fear of personal safety; "he endured as seeing (through faith) Him who is invisible" (Luke 12:4-5)
God - The prophets, though they taught more spiritual ideas about God, still used anthropomorphisms: thus, Isaiah Saw Jahweh on His throne ( Isaiah 6:1 ), though this was only in a vision. ]'>[6] Moses went up not ‘to Elohim,’ but ‘to the mount of God’; in Exodus 24:10 the words ‘they Saw Elohim of Israel’ become ‘they Saw the place where the God of Israel stood

The book opens with a short prologue, introducing the personality of Enoch, and giving the time and place of a dream he Saw (1)
Ascension of Isaiah - Manasseh seizes Isaiah and has him Sawn asunder with a wood-saw. in Origen and Jerome) which attribute the account of the Sawing asunder of Isaiah to Jewish traditions, and also by the fact that the Talmud contains a similar account of Isaiah’s death. Above all, the curious term ‘a wooden Saw’ can hardly he explained except as a misrendering of מַשׂוֹר עֵץ, ‘a wood-saw. There appears to be a reference to the Sawing asunder in Hebrews 11:37. In part the two seem identical; both dwell and rule in the firmament (7:9; 4:2), take possession of Manasseh (2:1; 1:9; 3:11; 5:1), are wroth with Isaiah for his visions (5:15; 3:13; 5:1), and cause Isaiah to be Sawn asunder (11:41; 5:15)

And when he looked he Saw a Lamb as it had been slain, who has the seven spirits of God, and He takes the book
Bible, Theology of - New Testament writers Saw His death variously, not only as the ultimate sacrifice, but also the ultimate expression of God's forgiving love.

Joseph - Shut your door on God and yourself, and on your knees ask Him still to add to your brother's goodliness, and to his talents, and to his honour, and to his happiness, and to his usefulness; if only He will anoint your eyes with enough love, and if only He will take out of your eyes that same evil light that glanced so murderously in the patriarchs' eyes as often as they again Saw Joseph in his shining coat. Whether it is pride-I sometimes think it is; or whether it is scorn of their company-as it may well be; or whether it is absence of mind, or age, or experience, or knowledge of the hearts of men, till they will not commit themselves to men, I am sometimes divided; but, be it what it may, I never yet Saw either of them take up a single moment of Joseph's time
David - ...

Magic - The Gentiles Saw miracles as magical in nature, and thus confused those of the apostles with their own magic (1618168920_25 )
Egypt - And to him it is significant of much that this land should thus be brought into connexion with the birth of a new era for the people, in the Person of a greater Son, in whom he Saw the fulfilment of the best hopes and brightest anticipations of Israel’s ancient prophets
Gentiles (2) - Matthew, although according to the usual account of his standpoint he had no especially Gentile proclivities, records two important prophetic utterances regarding the Gentiles as being illustrated and fulfilled in his Master’s work: ‘Galilee of the Gentiles; the people which sat in darkness Saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up’ (Luke 4:15-16), and, ‘In his name shall the Gentiles trust’ (Luke 12:21)
Judaizing - On the other hand, the keen intellect of a Stephen or a Paul Saw at once that any attempt to enforce the Mosaic Law or even the initiatory rite of circumcision upon the Gentiles, meant stagnation and death to the Church
Samuel - ...
Samuel Saw Saul no more, yet grieved for one whose self-incurred doom he could no longer avert, until Jehovah expostulated "how long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him?" (1 Samuel 16:1, compare Psalms 139:21-22)
Simeon - And many who Saw Him every day spake against Him everyday, just because they did not understand Him, and would not take the pains and pay the price to understand Him and to love Him
Moses - He led the song of triumph when they Saw their enemies dead on the sea shore
Zechariah, Book of - (Was theft an especially acute problem in the poor, reduced state of Judah after the Exile?) In the seventh vision (Zechariah 5:5-11 ), Zechariah Saw an ephah, in this case a container with a heavy, lead cover
Great, To Be; Heavy - ...
The word can be used metaphorically, describing an abstract concept: “And God Saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” ( John - John thought and thought continually on what he Saw and heard
Allegory - I Saw other winds, I perceived other storms, I did not withdraw from other impending tempests; but I exposed myself singly to them for the common safety

He was reproved by the Lord's prophet Jehu, after his escape at Ramoth Gilead (2 Chronicles 19:2-3); then when he renewed the alliance with Ahab's son Ahaziah, by Eliezer; at last he Saw the fatal effects of alliance with the ungodly (1 Corinthians 15:33), and would not let Ahaziah's servants go in his ships (1 Kings 22:48)
Egypt - And to him it is significant of much that this land should thus be brought into connexion with the birth of a new era for the people, in the Person of a greater Son, in whom he Saw the fulfilment of the best hopes and brightest anticipations of Israel’s ancient prophets

Summary of contents...
God Saw how the Israelites were oppressed in Egypt (1:1-22), and prepared Moses to be the deliverer to save them. ...
Vigilantius - He was for a time favourably impressed by what he Saw at Bethlehem, and on one occasion, when Jerome was preaching upon the reality of the body at the resurrection, sprang up, and with applause of hands and feet saluted Jerome as champion of orthodoxy ( Ep
Revelation (2) - Revelation 4:2), he heard the Heavenly voice pronouncing judgment on the Churches, and Saw in a vision the Heavenly figure which is always standing unseen in their midst. Human wisdom is not identical with Divine wisdom; so he warns the Corinthians, as he quotes the ancient words, ‘Things which eye Saw not, and ear heard not, and which entered not into the heart of man, whatsoever things God hath prepared for them that love him’; and declares, ‘Unto us God revealed these things’—not the secrets of the future, but the secrets of the present—‘these things God revealed through the Spirit’ (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). But we Saw, too (§ 2), that a certain mental and spiritual capacity must be presupposed in the recipients of any revelation
English Versions - , which Saw the practical extinction of the general use of the French language in England, and the rise of a real native literature, Saw also a great revival of vernacular Biblical literature, beginning apparently with the Book of Psalms. The difference of style between Hereford and his continuator or continuators, the stiff and unpopular character of the work of the former, and the imperfections inevitable in a first attempt on so large a scale, called aloud for revision; and a second Wyclifite Bible, the result of a very complete revision of its predecessor, Saw the light not many years after the Reformer’s death
John (the Apostle) - With Peter and James he Saw the raising of Jairus’ daughter (Mark 5:37, Luke 8:51). It was John who ‘answered and said, Master we Saw one casting out devils in thy name: and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us’ (Mark 9:38, Luke 9:49). ‘We also Saw him (Polycarp) in our earliest youth, for he lived very long, and left this life at a great age, having suffered a glorious and brilliant martyrdom, and having always taught what he had learned from the Apostles
Paul - Paul Saw in a vision a man,of Macedonia, who besought him, saying, "Come over into Macedonia and help us. The magistrates, in great alarm, Saw the necessity of humbling themselves. Certain Jews from "Asia," who had come up for the pentecostal feast, and who had a personal knowledge of Paul, Saw him in the temple
Polycarpus, Bishop of Smyrna - In so behaving he claimed to act in the spirit of his master John, concerning whom he told that once when he went to take a bath in Ephesus and Saw Cerinthus within, he rushed away without bathing, crying out, "Let us flee, lest the bath should fall in, for Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within"; and when Marcion meeting Polycarp asked him, "Do you recognize us?" he answered, "I recognize thee as the firstborn of Satan. Three days before his apprehension he Saw in a vision his pillow on fire and at once interpreted the omen to his friends: "I must be burnt alive. The Jews eagerly backing up Nicetes the centurion had the body placed on the pyre and Saw it completely consumed so that it was only the bones "more precious than jewels more tried than gold," which the disciples could carry off to the place where they meant on the anniversary to commemorate the martyr's "birthday
Paul - ...
As he waited at Troas for indications of the will of God as to his future movements, he Saw, in the vision of the night, a man from the opposite shores of Macedonia standing before him, and heard him cry, "Come over, and help us" (Acts 16:9 ). The year of his release was signalized by the burning of Rome, which Nero Saw fit to attribute to the Christians
Matthew, the Gospel According to - " He identifies Matthew's Hebrew Gospel with "the Gospel of the Nazarenes," which he Saw in Pamphilus' library at Caesarea. , speak none of them ever Saw
Hannah - We never Saw them or they us; and if we had the opportunity we would forgive them and do them a service; yet such are the blind and furious passions of their hearts that our very names are a madness to them. And the land was full of such houses in the days of our Lord, and thus it was that He was what the observing men of Cæsarea Philippi Saw that He was
Isaiah - "The valley of vision" (Isaiah 22:1) may imply that it was in "the lower city" he resided and Saw visions, though "valley" may refer to Jersalem generally, surrounded by hills higher than Zion and Moriah. The Talmud, from an old genealogical roll found in Jerusalem, and from the Palestinian Targum on 2 Kings 21:16, states that king Manasseh "sawed Isaiah asunder" with a wooden Saw, to which the allusion may be in Hebrews 11:37
War, Holy War - If a man Saw a prisoner he wished to marry, her rights and feelings must be respected. Through the eyes of faith he Saw his victory being brought about by the march of the Divine Warrior in the attendant circumstances of storm and earthquake (vv
Jerusalem - ...
Isaiah Saw that ultimately the mountain of the Lord would be the goal of nations. Jesus Saw that the temple had become a commercial establishment rather than a center of spirituality
Holy Spirit - The community brought together by the disciples of Jesus was sustained by the conviction that it possessed the Spirit of God, and in that possession it Saw the peculiar feature which distinguished its members alike from the Greeks and from the Jews. Primitive Christianity, however, felt the overt recognition of the Spirit to be of the utmost importance, because it Saw the crowning work of Divine grace, not in its general action upon human beings through the invisible government of God, or in its manifestation in the earthly work of Christ, but rather in its operations in man himself-in its quickening of his thoughts and his love, and in its enrichment of the inner life
Paul as a Pastor - Now that it was all long past, they all Saw and admitted to themselves, and to one another, how in this disputed matter and in that, Paul had neither served himself, nor them, but the Lord only. Yea, ye yourselves know that these hands-and as he held them up, the assembled elders Saw a tongue of truth in every seam and scar that covered them-these hands have ministered to all my own necessities, and to them that were with me
Paul as a Student - With what a hunger for his books, and with what heavenward vows and oaths of work, young Saul would set out from Tarsus to Jerusalem! Our own best students come up to our divinity seats with thrilling and thanksgiving hearts, and it is only they who have such hearts who can at all enter into Saul's mind and heart and imagination as he descended Olivet and entered Jerusalem and Saw his name set down at last on Gamaliel's roll of the sons of the prophets. It was Paul's imperial mind, winged as it was with his wonderful imagination, that first swept, full of eyes, over the whole Old Testament history, and Saw, down to the bottom and up to the top, the whole hidden mystery of the Old Testament economies, from the creation of the first Adam on to the sitting down of the second Adam at the right hand of God
Begetting - Thus when the Baptist Saw the sign, the dove from heaven alighting upon Jesus, he tells us, ‘And I Saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God’ (John 1:34)

Jonathan - ...
The first time that Jonathan and David ever Saw one another was on the day when Goliath fell under David's sling. And David Saw that Saul was come out to seek his life
Circumcision - He Saw their danger on this point; he Saw that they were taking steps to this fatal result, by such an observance of these "days," &c, as had a strong leaning and dangerous approach to that dependence upon them for justification, which would destroy their faith in Christ's solely sufficient sacrifice; but his very doubting, not of the fact of their being addicted to these observances, but of the animus with which they regarded them, supposes it possible, however dangerous this Jewish conformity might be, that they might be observed for reasons which would still consist with their entire reliance upon the merits of Christ for salvation
Omnipresence - And if we came daily into a house wherein we Saw this was regularly done, though we never Saw an inhabitant in it, we could not doubt that the house was occupied by a rational inhabitant
Transubstantiation - He declared that he Saw no warrant for believing that the bread and wine were actually changed into the body and blood of Christ; but he adhered to the literal import of our Saviour's words, teaching that his body and blood were received, and that they were in some incomprehensible manner conjoined or united with the bread and wine. In other countries, too, he Saw many adhering to what he had taught, and carrying to as great length as it could be carried what, under his system, must be termed the allegorical language which he recommended
Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria - "Impious man! thou deservest death!" He Saw that they were not to be defied, but a smooth prevarication might disarm them. " Theophilus Saw his way to a blow, not only at the Origenists, but at Chrysostom, whom, according to Palladius, he had disliked from the first

Dalmanutha - Herz Saw in the word an Aramaized form of the Greek λιμήν ‘harbour’ (ExpT Typology - Moses Saw an earthly copy of the heavenly reality
Timothy, the First Epistle to - ...
As to Acts 20:25, "all" the Ephesian elders called to Miletus "never Saw Paul's face" afterward; Paul "knew" this by inspiration; but this assertion of his is compatible with his visiting Ephesus again (1 Timothy 1:3; 2 Timothy 1:18; 2 Timothy 4:20)
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
Reproach (2) - ’ The writer’s idea appears to be, not only that by identifying himself with his despised people Moses took upon himself a burden of contempt and suffering resembling that which was afterwards borne by Christ on our behalf, but that he had Christ prophetically in view—saw Him afar off, even as Father Abraham did (John 8:56), and was strengthened by the vision to run his own race with patience (cf
Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament - Matthew's use of Hosea 11:1 ( Hosea 2:15 ) suggests that the Gospel writer Saw a correspondence between Jesus' journey into Egypt and the Egyptian sojourn of the people of Israel

Evil - Behind death, sin, and all evil, the Apostolic Church Saw the devil and other powers of wickedness (Ephesians 4:27, 1 Thessalonians 3:5, Hebrews 2:14, James 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8, 1 John 5:19, Revelation 12:9), and accordingly Christ’s work, especially His death (Colossians 2:15), was regarded as a victory over all evil powers (1 John 3:8)

Aaron - For even as Aaron so spake, Moses Saw to his delight that Aaron had always the right word ready. I would take no rest till I had found them, and then, as God said of Aaron, I would be glad when I Saw them, and I would kiss them, and claim them as my own
Joseph (2) - In Bethlehem the Wise Men who had come from the East Saw Mary and ‘the young child’ and worshipped Him; and after their departure the angel of the Lord appeared again to Joseph, bidding him take Mary and the child and flee into Egypt on account of Herod, who would seek to destroy Him (Matthew 2:13)

Because of their expectation of a golden age, the Israelite people Saw victories over enemies as foreshadowings of the victory of the Messiah and the establishment of his kingdom
Parable - ...
However, could Jesus' use of these symbols for God mean simply that he Saw himself, as all of the prophets did, as doing God's work and speaking God's word? A few of these parables, like the two houses and the two sons, with their particular focus on obedience to Jesus' word, could be interpreted in this way
Hearing - For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which ye see, and Saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not’ (Matthew 13:16-17, Luke 10:24)

Domitian - 94, according to the Chronicle of Eusebius, as translated by Jerome, that the Domitianic persecution of the Christians began, and that the Apostle John, being banished to the island ‘Pathmus,’ Saw the Apocalypse (cf
Diodorus, Presbyter of Antioch - When, then, the great Nestorian controversy set in, Cyril clearly Saw that, apart from the watchword θεοτόκος , which had not arisen in the days of Diodorus, what men called Nestorianism was substantially the doctrine of Diodorus as developed by Theodorus of Mopsuestia, and that Nestorianism could only be fully crushed by a condemnation of the doctrines of Diodorus as the fountain head

Dead - This whimsical custom he supposes has descended to modern times from a very remote antiquity; and to have been the true reason that Daniel was absent when Belshazzar Saw the hand writing his doom on the wall
Habits - It was lawful for any man who Saw an Israelite dressed in such a garment to fall upon him and put him to death
Jeremiah - He Saw the strong holds of the city cast down, the palace of Solomon, the temple of God, with all its courts, its roofs of cedar and of gold, levelled to the earth, or committed to the flames; the sacred vessels, the ark of the covenant itself, with the cherubim, pillaged by profane hands
Joab - ...
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
Leander (2) - Probably Leander Saw the opportunity of the Catholics in Hermenigild's youth and the Catholicism of his wife Ingunthis, and this conjecture is warranted by the evidence that the persuasive and eloquent bishop, who afterwards led the conversion council, laid the first stone of his great work in the conversion and rising of Hermenigild against his Arian king and father Leovigild
Pity - The ‘tender mercy of our God’ in the Benedictus (Luke 1:78) is the thought illustrated in the parable of the Good Samaritan, who was ‘moved with compassion’ (ἐσπλαγχνίσθη) at the sight of the wounded man (Luke 10:33); as in that of the king who forgave the debtor, being ‘moved with compassion’ (σπλαγχνισθείς, Matthew 18:27); and even more strikingly so in the description of the father of the Prodigal, who, when he Saw his son returning, ἐσπλαγχνίσθη καὶ δραμὼν ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ (Luke 15:20)
Athanasius, Archbishop of Alexandria - He tells us, in his Life of Anthony , that he often Saw him; and although that reading of the conclusion of the preface, which makes him say that "he himself for some time attended on him, and poured water on his hands," may be considered doubtful, yet we know that he was afterwards spoken of as "the ascetic," and that when, years later, he took shelter in the cells of the monks of Egypt, he found himself perfectly at home. Athanasius Saw at once that his enemies were dominant; the presiding bishop, Flacillus of Antioch, was one of an Arian succession. Here the three emperors had a meeting, and all concurred in the restoration of Athanasius, who, after passing through Constantinople, Saw Constantius a second time, at a farther point on his homeward journey, at Caesarea in Cappadocia ( Apol
Apostles - Nathanael hesitated, but he came and Saw and heard, and the knowledge which Jesus displayed of his character and of his inmost life convinced him that He was indeed what Philip had declared Him to be (John 1:43 ff. We do not know who witnessed the expulsion of the traffickers from the temple, heard the mysterious words spoken regarding the destruction of the temple, or Saw the many miracles which He performed in the capital (John 2:13 ff. Walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He Saw the brothers Simon and Andrew, who were fishermen, engaged in casting their net
Palestine - ), and knew the power of worldliness as He Saw the palacelife of Herod there, and the glimmer of festive lamps among the palm-groves that had been Cleopatra’s. ...
That Jesus also Saw this clearly there can be no question; and this, among other things, must have been in His mind when He spoke of Himself as sending a sword (Matthew 10:34), and scattering fire on the earth (Luke 12:49). He Saw the ideals for which He lived and was to die, not as spiritual visions remote from the actual world, or as an advance on its honest endeavours after holiness, but against the background of a life whose gilded swinishness threw it up in all the high relief of the holiness of heaven against earth at its most sordid
Transfiguration (2) - ‘heavy with sleep, and, having kept themselves awake, they Saw his glory’ (John 9:32); together with two points of time, viz.

Sin (2) - Jesus’ sense of dependence upon the Father did not carry with it a monism which Saw God in all and all in God. Fundamentally this is the appeal to personal experience, and it is clear from the Epistle to the Romans, as from the whole Pauline theology, that the Apostle is universalizing his own experience, as he Saw himself in the light of the vision of Jesus of Nazareth (Galatians 1:11-17, Romans 7:7-25)
Father, Fatherhood - These imperfections He Saw clearly, but not because of a critical analysis of the Law such as a philosophical student of history might make. ’ Moses and those with him did not see the God of Israel (Exodus 4:22), but they Saw the place where He stood
Jeremiah - He Saw that the reformation was but a surface one, and would not ensure the permanent peace which many anticipated from it (Zechariah 11:12-137), for while "the temple" was restored the spirit of apostasy still prevailed, so that even Israel seemed just in comparison with what Judah had become (Jeremiah 3:11), a seeker of the truth was scarcely to be found, and self seeking was the real aim, while "the prophets prophesy falsely, the priests hear rule by their means, and God's people (!) love to have it so" (Jeremiah 5:1; Jeremiah 5:31). )...
Jeremiah, like Isaiah (Isaiah 30:1-7), foresaw that the tendency of many to desire an alliance with Egypt, upon the dissolution of the Assyrian empire whose vassal Manasseh was, would end in sorrow (Psalms 2:8-9): "what hast thou to do in the way of (with going down to) Egypt? to drink the waters of Sihor (to seek hosts as allies from the Nile land)?" Josiah so far molded his policy according to Jeremiah's counsel; but he forgot that it was equally against God's will for His people to lean upon Assyrian or Babylonian "confidences" as upon Egyptian (Jeremiah 36 - 37); so taking the field as ally of Assyria and Babylon against the Egyptian Pharaoh Necho he fell (2 Kings 23:29). The portion of the nation remaining in Judah Jeremiah Saw by the Spirit was the worst (Jeremiah 24), and would fare the worst
Progress - Here also He Saw the essential nature of the progress needed, and found the grounds on which to His mind man’s progress was guaranteed. He Saw that this revelation was very incomplete and imperfect

Jesus Saw many around Him glorying in fancied privilege and very zealous for the Law, yet omitting its essential matters—justice, mercy, faith

Bethlehem - The atmosphere was remarkably clear and serene; but we Saw none of those clouds of smoke, which, by some writers, are said to exhale from the surface of the lake, nor from any neighbouring mountain
Jeremiah - Jeremiah Saw that in spite of the king’s good work, little had changed in people’s hearts
Nationality - But when He was departed, His disciples ‘saw greater things than these
Peace (2) - 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
Pride (2) - In it men Saw their Lord counting it not a prize to be on an equality with God, emptying Himself, and taking the form of a servant
Pharisees - Paul is meritorious not more as the Apostle of the Gentiles than by the fact that he, a former Pharisee, Saw so clearly the danger of this incipient neo-Pharisaism with its exclusiveness and ‘desire to be under the law,’ and combated it so successfully
Preaching - They did not preach by the clock (so to speak, ) but were short or long as they Saw occasion, though an hour was about the usual time. This obliged the people to get acquainted with Christ, the object of their faith; and thus they were led into the knowledge of a character altogether different from what they Saw in their old guides; a character which it is impossible to know, and not to admire and imitate
Animals - In Jesus he Saw ‘the reality of which all animal sacrifice was the symbol’ (Marcus Dods). The word is not intended to add to the harshness of our Lord’s saying; the woman Saw in it her ground for appeal
Joshua - Wordsworth has two such boys:...
Never did worthier lads break English bread:The finest Sunday that the autumn Saw,With all its mealy cluster of ripe nuts,Could never keep those boys away from church,Or tempt them to one hour of Sabbath breach,Leonard and James!And as such boys rise to he young men they are already promising pillars in the house of their fathers' God. And she had already her full wages paid her when she Saw her son Joshua standing of his own accord before Moses and serving him as his minister
Hammurabi - While the early years witnessed military and political expansion which was probably initiated by his father, Sin-muballit, the latter years Saw the kingdom shrink
Sea - But he Saw through their scheme and warned the centurion
Nahum - In this respect he contrasts especially with his contemporary Zephaniah, who also looked for the collapse of the Assyrian kingdom, but Saw clearly a similar fate about to overtake the sinners of Israel
House - Here Peter in prayer Saw the vision (Acts 10:9)
Fulfillment - Even if it is plain that God was acting as the causative agent, as in creation, for example, all that can be said with certainty is that there was a consistently high quality of power and planning that guided the process in all of its phases, and that quality controls ("and God Saw that it was good") were being exercised at certain intervals
Idol, Idolatry - Deuteronomy 4:15-19 states that Israel Saw no form of God at Sinai; therefore they were not to make any images of him or any other object of creation
King, Christ as - Blind Bartimaeus Saw what others had missed, as he shouted, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" (Mark 10:46-52 )

Timothy, Epistles to - Romans 1:4 ); has appeared to angels (they Saw God in Christ); has been preached among the nations; has been believed on in the world; and has been received up into glory — an epitome of God's ways in grace outside of all connected with promises to Israel, and in contrast to law
Elisha - In a moment the young ploughman Saw and understood what it was that had happened to him
Abel - He Saw, now, when it was too late, how he had grieved and vexed and offended his brother
Angel - " Though it be a universal opinion that angels are of a spiritual and incorporeal nature, yet some of the fathers, misled by a passage in Genesis 6:2 , where it is said, "The sons of God Saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose," imagined them to be corporeal, and capable of sensual pleasures
Proselyte - (2) Many of those in the Gentile world who were dissatisfied with the intellectual results and the religious conditions of their time Saw in Judaism, as lived and taught before their eyes, something finer and nobler than they had found elsewhere; and were drawn to its practical teaching and life without committing themselves to the ritual that offended their sense of fitness and decency (cf

Praise (2) - A typical example is Matthew 9:8 (‘But when the multitudes Saw it [11], they were afraid, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men’)
Elisha - Elisha's ministering servant (not Gehazi) rising early was terrified at the sight; "alas, my master! how shall we do?" Elisha replies, "they that be with us are more than they with him" (2 Chronicles 32:7; Psalms 55:18; Romans 8:31), and prays, "Lord, open his eyes"; then he Saw "the mountain full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha" (Psalms 34:7; Zechariah 9:8. Acts 13:41; and on lucre-loving Gehazi-like ministers, as Judas; giving up to judicial blindness the willfully blind, John 9:39-41; and to seeing without tasting bliss those who disbelieve the gospel promise of the heavenly feast; so the rich man in hell Saw Lazarus afar off in Abraham's bosom, an impassable gulf excluding himself (Luke 16:23-26)
Inspiration And Revelation - It Saw the hand of God throughout, even through suffering and failure, guiding it in unexpected ways towards the better fulfilment of its mission. -We cannot do better than begin our discussion of inspiration with this passage, which must be given in full: ‘We speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, even the wisdom that hath been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds unto our glory: which none of the rulers of this world knoweth: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory: but as it is written, Things which eye Saw not, and ear heard not, And which entered not into the heart of man, Whatsoever things God prepared for them that love him
Wandering Stars - He foresaw a catastrophe, and His regulations for the disciples were made in view of a crisis, not only for the Jews but for the universe. ‘The Jewish war Saw at least one Essene heading the rebels, and others in the ardent ranks of the Sicarii and the Zealots’ (ERE v.

Jesus Christ - A change occurred with the coming of the Enlightenment that no longer Saw the truth of the Gospels as guaranteed by God.

Second Coming of Christ - They gave it a new twist when they spoke of Jesus as "the Christ, " "the Anointed One, " and Saw him not only as having lived a life on earth here in time but as destined to return to the earth at the end of the age to set up God's final state of things. Matthew 12:17-21 ), and clearly Saw himself as sent by the Father to inaugurate the kingdom of God
Miracle - "It is indeed, we believe, universally admitted that the miracles mentioned in the book of Exodus, and in the four Gospels, might, to those who Saw them performed, be sufficient evidence of the divine inspiration of Moses and of Christ; but to us it may be thought that they are no evidence whatever, as we must believe in the miracles themselves, if we believe in them at all, upon the bare authority of human testimony. "Be this, however, as it may, we shall take the liberty to affirm, that for the reality of the Gospel miracles, we have evidence as convincing to the reflecting mind, though not so striking to vulgar apprehension, as those had who were contemporary with Christ and his apostles, and actually Saw the mighty works which he performed. They could not, if they foresaw that they should fail, look for any thing but that contempt, disgrace, and persecution, which were then the inevitable consequences of an unsuccessful endeavour to overthrow the established religion
Announcements of Death - If He spoke of His death only as a disappointed man after He Saw the manifest hate of the rulers, there would be little ground for claiming Messianic consciousness concerning His death as an atonement for sin. But Jesus Saw in the beautiful act of Mary a prophecy of His burial (John 12:7)
Paul the Apostle - When approaching Damascus he Saw a strong light, and Jesus appearing to him (so explicitly 1 Corinthians 9:1 ), saying, ‘Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?’ The voice was unintelligible to his companions ( Acts 22:9 ), though they Saw the light ( ib

Peter - Peter was one of the most prominent members in the company of disciples, and so strongly did Jesus and His work appeal to him that he Saw in the new movement foreshadowings of the long-looked-for Messianic Kingdom, and ultimately he identified Jesus with the Messiah. Then came the experience which constituted the real turning-point in his life: he Saw his Master alive again-no longer an earthly but now a heavenly Being
Paulinus, Bishop of Nola - On his way he Saw St. It does not appear that he ever Saw Sulpicius after his visit to Spain but the love of the two for each other never failed

Angel - In John's Gospel Mary Magdalene Saw two angels in white clothing, sitting in the empty tomb, just before she met the risen Lord (John 20:12-16 )
Zebedee - They discuss the question as to what Jacob Saw in vision, in that he blessed Zebulun immediately after Judah (Genesis 49:10-14), and the usual answer they give is that he foresaw the glories of Rabbinism in the presence of the Sanhedrin at Sepphoris before it was removed to Tiberias (Yalkut Shimeoni, i

Glory - To this the term δόξα is frequently applied-at Bethlehem (Luke 2:9), and at the Transfiguration (2 Peter 1:17); the ‘glory’ of God is the light of the New Jerusalem; Stephen looking up Saw the ‘glory of God’ (Acts 7:55); and the redeemed are at last presented faultless before the presence of His glory (Judges 1:24; Jude cf
Laughter - ’ It is allowed by writers of the most orthodox school that irony and satire were used by Jesus upon occasion; if He Saw fit to employ these sterner weapons, the gentler one of humour would not be beneath Him

Moses having ascended the mountain to receive the law from God, Aaron, his sons, and seventy elders, followed him, Exodus 24:1-2 ; Exodus 24:9-11 ; not indeed to the summit, but "afar off," "and they Saw the God of Israel," that is, the glory in which he appeared, "as it were the paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven for clearness;"—a clear and dazzling, azure, a pure, unmingled splendour like that of the heavens
Jacob - Rebekah, also, was deprived of the society of her darling son, whom "she sent away for one year," as she fondly imagined, "until his brother's fury should turn away," Genesis 27:42-44 ; but whom she Saw no more; for she died during his long exile of twenty years, though Isaac survived, Genesis 35:27

καὶ προῆλθον αὐτούς (and outwent them), אB lect 49 Lat. , far more naturally takes the ἐξελθών to mean ‘having landed,’ and thus the only objection that Hort could find to the language of the fuller reading falls to the ground: the crowd were the first to reach the spot whither Jesus and His disciples were going, they ran together on the beach to meet Him; and as He landed He Saw them, and realized that He could not secure the quiet He sought
Canon of the New Testament - The 30 years from Justin Martyr, who knew only a collection of 3 Gospels as specially authoritative, and that simply as records of the life and teaching of Christ, to Irenæus, with his frequent appeals to the Epistles as well as the Gospels, Saw the birth of a NT Canon, but left no record of so great an event. Eusebius Saw clearly that it is not always possible to give a definite affirmative or negative answer to the question whether a certain book should be in the Canon
Prophet, Prophetess, Prophecy - ...
Isaiah describes how he felt when he Saw the Lord on a throne in his temple (Isaiah 6:1-5 ). Thus, just as the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam's donkey so that she Saw what Balaam at first could not see (Numbers 22:31 ), so God opened the eyes of the prophet Elisha's servant so that he could see the angelic armies of the Lord that surrounded Samaria were indeed greater in number than the Syrian armies (2 Kings 6:15-17 )
Education - ...
When the boy, at the age of seven, went to school-the grammar school and the gymnastic school-he was accompanied by a servant called a παιδαγωγός who carried his books and writing materials, his lyre and other instruments, and Saw him to school and back (see Schoolmaster, Tutor).

Messiah - When Sabatai was before the Cadi (or justice of peace, ) some affirmed they Saw a pillar of fire between him and the Cadi; and after some had affirmed it, others were ready to swear it, and did swear it also; and this was presently believed by the Jews of that city.

Millenarians - The Apostle John Saw the souls of them which were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, &c, and they lived and reigned with Christ.

Poet - The OT image repeated by later prophets from 1 Kings 22:17 (‘I Saw all Israel scattered upon the hills as sheep that have no shepherd’) had evidently touched His heart most deeply.

Disciples - Whereas the term “apostle” retained a more specific meaning, being tied to certain historical eyewitnesses of the resurrected Lord, the word “disciple” tended to lose its narrower associations with the twelve, and/or those who followed the historical Jesus, or who Saw the risen Lord, and became a virtual equivalent to “Christian” (Acts 11:26 )
Flood, the - The divine judgment involved a period of probation (Genesis 6:3 ), followed by a judicial investigation ("The Lord Saw " Genesis 6:5 ; "I have determined, " Genesis 6:13 ; RSV ), the sentence (Genesis 6:7 ), and its execution (the bringing of the flood, Genesis 7:11-24 )

Gods And Goddesses, Pagan - The Assyrians Saw him as a mighty warrior-god
Kings, First And Second, Theology of - Since the books of 1, 2 Kings possess an inner unity and ideology, it is appropriate to view them as a single work; both the Talmud and Josephus Saw them as one book

Adam (1) - Satan's antitrinity, the lust of the flesh ("the woman Saw that the tree was good for food"), the lust of the eye ("and that it was pleasant to the eyes"), and the pride of life (and a "tree to be desired to make one wise") seduced man: 1 John 2:16; compare ACHAN; Joshua 7:21
God - Paul says that ‘the things which eye Saw not’ (he seems to be paraphrasing Isaiah 64:4) have been revealed by God ‘unto us’ (ἡμῖν is emphatic here) ‘through the Spirit, for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God’ (1 Corinthians 2:9 f

Basilius, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia - The year 358 Saw Basil again at Caesarea resolved on the immediate carrying out of his purpose of retiring from the world, finally selecting for his retreat a spot near Neocaesarea, close to the village of Annesi, where his father's estates lay, and where he had passed his childhood under the care of his grandmother Macrina. In this secluded spot Basil passed five years, an epoch of no small importance in the history of the church, inasmuch as it Saw the origin under Basil's influence of the monastic system in the coenobitic form
Hippolytus Romanus - Prudentius describes the subterranean tomb of the saint and states that he Saw on the spot a picture representing this execution, and that this martyrdom was commemorated on Aug. ...
The picture which Prudentius Saw may well have been originally intended to depict the sufferings of the mythological Hippolytus, and, being inscribed with that name, have been ignorantly copied or transferred by Christians to adorn the resting-place of the martyr of that name
Belief (2) - To them it was given to toil for the race, and the vision they Saw and the moral and spiritual truth they won became the inheritance of other men, and through them were conserved for the good of the race.

Babylon - Herodotus states, that he knew not how to speak of its wonderful fertility, which none but eye witnesses would credit; and, though writing in the language of Greece, itself a fertile country, he expresses his own consciousness that his description of what he actually Saw would appear to be improbable, and to exceed belief. " Major Keppel Saw there a similar footprint of a lion
Worship - Heathens, who, like Alexander Severus, Saw something divine in Christ's personal form, and sects which mixed Heathenism and Christianity together, were the first who made use of images of Christ; as, for instance, the Gnostic sect of the followers of Carpocratian, who put his image beside those of Plato and Aristotle. In the intercourse of daily life, the Christians Saw themselves every where surrounded by objects of Heathen mythology, or by such as shocked their moral and Christian feelings
Marcion, a 2nd Century Heretic - When the God of the Law Saw this he was enraged, rent his clothes, tore the curtain of his palace, darkened his sun, and veiled his world in darkness.

Croisade, or Crusade - who, prudently resolving not to interpose his authority till he Saw a probability of success, summoned at Placentia, a council of 4000 ecclesiastics and 30, 000 seculars
Reality - It is significant that the men who knew Him best and Saw most of Him in daily intimacy were also the men who adored and believed in Him most fervently; and even the one who played the traitor was yet constrained to bear testimony to the goodness he had wronged (Matthew 27:4)
Trust - Certain it is that the writers of the NT Saw in Christ more than Teacher and Example

Apostolic Constitutions And Canons - … Be not hasty with the Saw, but first try lancing
Agony - Must this antagonism of sin to God be forced to its ultimate issue? Could He not save mankind by some mode of sacrifice that would involve the men concerned in it in less heinous guilt? Must He by persevering in His present course drive His enemies to do their worst against Him, and thus by His fidelity to His vocation must He involve all who opposed Him in this greater iniquity? That such questions cannot have been present to the mind of Jesus, who can confidently affirm?

Job - Though Job was one of the greatest men of all the east, we do not find any such adoration paid to him by his contemporaries, in the zenith of his prosperity, among the marks of respect so minutely described in the twenty-ninth chapter: "When the young men Saw him, they hid themselves," (rather, shrunk back, through respect or rustic bashfulness,) "the aged arose and stood up in his presence, (more correctly, ranged themselves about him, ) "the princes refrained from talking, and laid their hand upon their mouth; the nobles held their peace," and were all attention while he spoke

Atonement - ...
The first declaration, on this subject, after the appearance of Christ, is that of John the Baptist, when he Saw Jesus coming unto him, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world;" where it is obvious, that when John called our Lord, "the Lamb of God," he spoke of him under a sacrificial character, and of the effect of that sacrifice as an atonement for the sins of mankind

Justification - ’ Then, man’s self is appreciated from the Divine standpoint, as God Saw creation in its first being, not as it actually is in present attainment, nor as it will be in perfect fruition, but as it is ideally becoming when put upon the right basis and in the right atmosphere, the condition we find in ‘the stature of a perfect man’-Christ-the root and direction rather than the end or goal determining the judgment of its character

Sarah - And she Saw God at that wilderness-well with a clearness, and with an assurance, and with a rapture, and with a submission, and with an immediate obedience that all combine to lift up Ilagat and to set Hagar beside, and even before, both her master and her mistress in the favour and in the fellowship of God

Miracles - Harnack will not ‘reject peremptorily as illusion that lame walked, blind Saw, and deaf heard,’ but he will not believe that ‘a stormy sea was stilled by a word
Forgiveness - These two aspects of Jesus' teaching, however, are not in tension, because he Saw his time as that of eschatological salvation, the time of the resolution of the tension between God as merciful and God as righteous in his dealings with human beings.

Law - Paul Saw at once that he was called to be a missionary among the heathen, and he seems to have laboured as such for a time without any interference whatever-a circumstance which will hardly seem strange when we remember that certain Hellenists who had been driven out in consequence of the persecution connected with Stephen had preached the gospel in Antioch even to the Gentiles, and that the numerous converts whom they had won from heathendom were recognized as brethren by the community in Jerusalem (Acts 11:20-24)

Offering - In his vision of the universal worship of God, even in Gentile lands, Malachi Saw the minchâh given as “a pure offering” to God by believers everywhere ( Covenant - When God Saw all that he had done, he confirmed, not by expressing an oath or performing a ratifying ceremony, but by declaring all to be very good (Genesis 1:31 )

Miracles - If we be asked whether miracles are credible, we reply, that, abstractedly considered, they are not incredible; that they are capable of indirect proof from analogy, and of direct, from testimony; that in the common and daily course of worldly affairs, events, the improbability of which, antecedently to all testimony, was very great, are proved to have happened, by the authority of competent and honest witnesses; that the Christian miracles were objects of real and proper experience to those who Saw them; and that whatsoever the senses of mankind can perceive, their report may substantiate
Augustine - ...
Augustine was deeply affected at the close of this visit; and when Pontinius had retired, giving vent to his feelings he addressed Alipius in a most animated strain: "How is this? What shall we do? Ignorant people come, and seize upon heaven; and we, with our learning, (senseless wretches that we are!) behold we are immersed in flesh and blood: Are we ashamed to follow them? Yet is it not a still greater shame, not even to be able to follow them?"
