Hymn written by Saint Alphonsus (1696-1787) and translated by Reverend E Vaughan.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Say
1: λέγω (Strong's #3004 — Verb — lego — leg'-o ) primarily, "to pick out, gather," chiefly denotes "to say, speak, affirm," whether of actual speech, e.g., Matthew 11:17 , or of unspoken thought, e.g., Matthew 3:9 , or of a message in writing, e.g., 2 Corinthians 8:8 . The 2nd aorist form eipon is used to supply that tense, which is lacking in lego. Concerning the phrase "he answered and said," it is a well known peculiarity of Hebrew narrative style that a speech is introduced, not simply by "and he said," but by prefixing "and he answered" (apokrinomai, with eipon). In Matthew 14:27 , "saying," and Mark 6:50 , "and saith," emphasis is perhaps laid on the fact that the Lord, hitherto silent as He moved over the lake, then addressed His disciples. That the phrase sometimes occurs where no explicit question has preceded (e.g., Matthew 11:25 ; 17:4 ; 28:5 ; Mark 11:14 ; 12:35 ; Luke 13:15 ; 14:3 ; John 5:17,19 ), illustrates the use of the Hebrew idiom.
Note: A characteristic of lego is that it refers to the purport or sentiment of what is said as well as the connection of the words; this is illustrated in Hebrews 8:1 , RV, "(in the things which) we are saying," AV, "(which) we have spoken." In comparison with laleo (No. 2), lego refers especially to the substance of what is "said," laleo, to the words conveying the utterance; see, e.g., John 12:49 , "what I should say (lego, in the 2nd aorist subjunctive form eipo), and what I should speak (laleo);" John 12:50 , "even as the Father hath said (laleo, in the perfect form eireke) unto Me, so I speak" (laleo); cp. 1 Corinthians 14:34 , "saith (lego) the law;" 1 Corinthians 14:35 , "to speak" (laleo). Sometimes laleo signifies the utterance, as opposed to silence, lego declares what is "said;" e.g., Romans 3:19 , "what things soever the law saith (lego), it speaketh (laleo) to them that are under the law;" see also Mark 6:50 ; Luke 24:6 . In the NT laleo never has the meaning "to chatter."
2: λαλέω (Strong's #2980 — Verb — laleo — lal-eh'-o ) "to speak," is sometimes translated "to say;" in the following where the AV renders it thus, the RV alters it to the verb "to speak," e.g., John 8:25 (3rd part),26; 16:6; 18:20 (2nd part),21 (1st part); Acts 3:22 (2nd part); 1 Corinthians 9:8 (1st part); Hebrews 5:5 ; in the following the RV uses the verb "to say," John 16:18 ; Acts 23:18 (2nd part); 26:22 (2nd part); Hebrews 11:18 . See Note above, and SPEAK, TALK , TELL , UTTER.
3: φημί (Strong's #5346 — Verb — phemi — fay-mee' ) "to declare, say," (a) is frequently used in quoting the words of another, e.g., Matthew 13:29 ; 26:61 ; (b) is interjected into the recorded words, e.g., Acts 23:35 ; (c) is used impersonally, 2 Corinthians 10:10 .
4: λέγω (Strong's #3004 — Verb — eiro — leg'-o ) an obsolete verb, has the future tense ereo, used, e.g., in Matthew 7:4 ; Luke 4:23 (2nd part); 13:25 (last part); Romans 3:5 ; 4:1 ; 6:1 ; 7:7 (1st part); 8:31; 9:14,19,20,30; 11:19; 1 Corinthians 15:35 ; 2 Corinthians 12;6 ; James 2:18 . The perfect is used, e.g., in John 12:50 ; see No. 1, Note. The 1st aorist Passive, "it was said," is used in Romans 9:12,26 ; Revelation 6:11 . See SPEAK , No. 13.
5: προλέγω (Strong's #4302 — Verb — proeipon — prol-eg'-o ) and proereo, "to say before," used as aorist and future respectively of prolego (pro, "before," and No. 1), is used (a) of prophecy, e.g., Romans 9:29 ; "to tell before," Matthew 24:25 ; Mark 13:23 ; "were spoken before," 2 Peter 3:2 ; Jude 1:17 ; (b) of "saying" before, 2 Corinthians 7:3 ; 13:2 , RV (AV, "to tell before" and "foretell"); Galatians 1:9 ; 5:21 ; in 1 Thessalonians 4:6 , "we forewarned," RV. See FORETELL , FOREWARN , TELL.
6: ἀντί (Strong's #473 — Preposition — anteipon — an-tee' ) "to say against" (anti, "against," and No. 1), is so rendered in Acts 4:14 . See GAINSAY.
Notes: (1) Phasko, "to affirm, assert," is translated "saying" in Acts 24:9 , AV (RV, "affirming"), and Revelation 2:2 in some mss. (AV). See AFFIRM , No. 3. (2) In Acts 2:14 , AV, apophthengomai, "to speak forth" (RV), is rendered "said." (3) The phrase tout' esti (i.e., touto esti), "that is," is so translated in Matthew 27:46 , RV (AV, "that is to say"); so Acts 1:19 ; in Hebrews 9:11 ; 10:20 , AV and RV, "that is to say;" in Mark 7:11 the phrase is ho esti, lit., "which is;" the phrase ho legetai, lit., "which is said," John 1:38 ; 20:16 , is rendered "which is to say." (4) In Luke 7:40 ; Acts 13:15 , the imperative mood of eipon and lego, respectively, is rendered "say on." (5) In Mark 6:22 , AV, autes, "herself," RV, is rendered "the said." (6) In Hebrews 5:11 , "we have many things to say" is, lit., "much (polus) is the word (or discourse, logos) for us."
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Say, Speak, Answer
A. Verb.
'Âmar (אָמַר, Strong's #559), “to say, speak, tell, command, answer.” This verb occurs in all Semitic languages and in all periods of those languages although it has the meaning “to say, speak” only in the so-called Northwest Semitic dialects (except in Ugaritic) and in Aramaic. Elsewhere the word means “to say” or “to see.” This verb is med about 5,280 times in Old Testament Hebrew.‘Âmar refers to the simple act of communicating with the spoken word. Usually the word is used of direct speech (“say”), although it may be used of indirect speech as well (“speak”).
The usual subject of this verb is some selfconscious personality—man (Gen. 2:23) or God (Gen. 1:3—the first occurrence of the word). Infrequently animals (Gen. 3:1) or, in figures of speech such as personification, inanimate objects “say” something (Judg. 9:8ff.). This verb bears many connotations and in some passages is better translated accordingly. The KJV renders this verb “answer” 98 times (“say as a response”), while the NASB translates such passages “said.” In Gen. 9:8 we read: “God spoke to Noah” (NASB); the specific content of the communication is not immediately detailed. In Gen. 22:2 Abraham is to offer Isaac on the “mountain of which” God “tells [1] him” (NASB). Moses requests Pharaoh to let Israel go and sacrifice to God as He “commands” them (Exod. 8:27); the force of God’s speaking is more than merely making a statement: It is authoritative.
In addition to these frequently occurring connotations, 'âmar is rendered with many words representing variom aspects of spoken communication, such as “appoint” or “assign” (1 Kings 11:18), “mention” or “name” (Gen. 43:27), “call” (Isa. 5:20), and “promise” (2 Kings 8:19). Although not always so translated, this word can imply the act of thinking within oneself (Gen. 44:28) and the intention to do something (Exod. 2:14).
When used of divine speaking, this verb may refer to simple communication (Gen. 1:26). Often, however, there is a much fuller sense where God’s saying effects the thing spoken (cf. Gen. 1). The phrase “thus says the Lord,” so frequent in the prophets, has been analyzed as a message-formula. Ancient Near Eastern letters from, for example, Mari (1750-1697 B.C.) and Amarna (1400-1360 B.C.) contain a similar formula. One might compare our letters which open with “Dear sir.” Divine messages are often concluded with the words “says the Lord.” The Bible recognizes that behind the divine speaking is divine authority and power.
The Septuagint renders this verb by over 40 different Greek words and most often by lego (“to say”) and eipen (“he said”).
B. Nouns.
'Êmer (אֵמֶר, Strong's #561), “word; speech.” This noun appears 48 times. 'Êmer refers to “words” in Prov. 2:1: “My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee.”
Several other nouns are related to the verb ’amar. ’Imrah also means “word, speech,” and it occurs 37 times. One occurrence of ‘imrah is in 2 Sam. 22:31 (cf. Ps. 18:30). The noun ‘omer is found 6 times and means “word, speech, promise” (Ps. 68:11; Hab. 3:9). Ma’amar and me’mar mean “word, command.” Ma’amar occurs 3 times (Esth. 1:15; 2:22; 9:32), and me’mar occurs twice (Ezra 6:9; Dan. 4:17).
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Say, Utter, Affirm
A. Verb.
Ne'ûm (נְאֻם, Strong's #5002), “to say, utter an affirmation, speak.” The word is a verbal form of the verb ne'ûm, which occurs only once in the entire Old Testament: “Behold, I am against the prophets, saith [1] the Lord, that use their tongues, and say [2], He saith [1]” (Jer. 23:31). The word ne'ûm appears as many as 361 times and, because of the frequency in the prophetical books, it is characteristic of prophetic speech.
Ne'ûm is an indicator which generally appears at the end of the quotation: “What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith [4] the Lord God of hosts” (Isa. 3:15). The word may also be found in the middle of an argument: “And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith [1] the Lord. But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not” (Amos 2:11-12).
B. Noun.
Ne'ûm (נְאֻם, Strong's #5002), “utterance; saying.” The use of ne'ûm is rare at the beginning of a statement: “The Lord said unto my Lord [6], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool” (Ps. 110:1).
With one exception (Prov. 30:1) in the sayings of Agur, the usage throughout the Old Testament is virtually limited to a word from God. In Numbers the utterances of Balaam are introduced with the formula “and he uttered his oracle”: “The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor, the oracle of the man whose eye is opened” (Num. 24:3, RSV; cf. v. 15). David’s concluding words begin with these words: “Now these are the last words of David: The oracle of David, the son of Jesse, the oracle of the man who was raised on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, the sweet psalmist of Israel” (2 Sam. 23:1, RSV). Apart from these instances there are a few more examples, but as a rule ne'ûm is a prophetic term, which even beyond the prophetical literature is associated with a word from God.
The Septuagint gives the following translation(s): legein (“utterance in words”) and hode (used with reference to what follows, e.g., “this is what … says”).

King James Dictionary - Say
SAY, pret. and pp. said, contracted from sayed.
1. To speak to utter in words as, he said nothing he said many things he says not a word. Say a good word for me. It is observable that although this word is radically synonymous with speak and tell, yet the uses are applications of these words are different. Thus we say, to speak an oration, to tell a story but in these phrases, say cannot be used. Yet to say a lesson is good English, though not very elegant. We never use the phrases to say a sermon or discourse, to say an argument, to say a speech, to say testimony.
A very general use of say is to introduce a relation, narration or recital, either of the speaker himself or of something said or done or to be done by another. Thus Adam said, this is bone of my bone Noah said, blessed be the Lord God of Shem. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. Say to the cities of Judah, behold your God. I cannot say what I should do in a similar case. Say thus precedes a sentence. But it is perhaps impracticable to reduce the peculiar and appropriate uses of say, speak and tell, to general rules. They can be learned only by observation.
2. To declare. Genesis 38 . 3. To utter to pronounce. Say now Shibboleth. Judges 12 .
4. To utter, as a command. God said, let there be light. Genesis 1 .
5. To utter, as a promise. Luke 23 . 6. To utter, as a question or answer. Mark 11 . 7. To affirm to teach. Matthew 17 . 8. To confess. Luke 17 . 9. To testify. Acts 26 . 10. To argue to allege by way of argument. After all that can be said against a thing -
11. To repeat to rehearse to recite as, to say a lesson. 12. To pronounce to recite without singing. Then shall be said or sung as follows. 13. To report as in the phrases, it is said, they say. 14. To answer to utter by way of reply to tell. Say, Stella, feel you no content, reflecting on a life well spent?
Note - This verb is not properly intransitive. In the phrase, "as when we say, Plato is no fool," the last clause is the object after the verb that is, "we say what follows." If this verb is properly intransitive in any case, it is in the phrase, "that is to say," but in such cases, the subsequent clause is the object of the verb, being that which is said, uttered or related.
SAY, n. A speech something said. In popular use, but not elegant.
SAY, n. for assay.
1. A sample. Obs. 2. Trial by sample. Obs. SAY, n. A thin silk. Obs.

Gadarenes - It forms a most interesting miracle, in the account of Christ's ministry, (See Mark 5:1-30) Who can Say, but that the Lord Jesus directed his steps to this very spot, purposely for the salvation of this poor man, and him only? For we are told, that while he sat at the feet of Jesus, (after that the Lord had dispossessed the evil spirit) clothed, and in his right mind: the Gadarenes began to pray Jesus to depart out of their coasts.

Amen - ...
Jesus introduces his teaching by Saying amen lego humin [1], that is, "truly I Say to you, " on nearly seventy occasions in the Gospels (thirty times in Matthew, thirteen in Mark, six in Luke, and twenty in John, where the amen is always doubled). Where the prophets often said, "Thus Says the Lord, " Jesus often Says, "Amen I Say to you. They Say, "Thus Says the Lord. " Or, like Paul, they Say they received a revelation from heaven. But Jesus Says, "Truly I Say to you" dozens of times, asserting that his words are certainly true because he Says them. When Jesus instructed Nicodemus, for example, he appealed not to Scripture but to his own authority, Saying "Amen, amen, I Say to you" (John 3:3,5 ; see also Matthew 6:2,5 , 16 ; 18:3 ; Luke 13:35 ; John 5:19,24 , 25 ; 6:26,32 , 47,53 ). Amen lego humin also punctuates the teaching of truths unknown in the Old Testament, and seasons startling Sayings for which Jesus offers no proof other than his own authority. So in Matthew 5 Jesus comments on the Old Testament or Jewish interpretations of it six times in the chapter, Saying, "You have heard that it was said , but I tell you. ...
In this way, whenever Jesus Says "amen lego humin" [1], he shows awareness of his authority, his deity. Paul also invites his readers to Say amen to the promises of God (2Col 1:20; see also Revelation 22:20 )

If he imitates those who before believing wish to see and feel, and like the apostle Thomas wait for palpable proof before relying upon testimony, he will Say, 'a captain of the guard always wears a captain's uniform, and mine is only that of a common soldier.

The paraphrast Jonathan Says they were the sons of Balaam, who accompanied him to Balak, king of Moab. Ambrosiaster, or Hilary, the deacon, Says they were brothers. Jerom translates their names Johannes and Mambres; and there is a tradition, they Say, in the Talmud, that Juhanni and Mamre, chief of Pharaoh's physicians, said to Moses, "Thou bringest straw into Egypt, where abundance of corn grew;" that is, to bring your magical arts hither is to as much purpose as to bring water to the Nile.

Faith - But notwithstanding: all that the bewildered and erroneous mind of man may Say on faith, the scriptural account of faith is the simplest and plainest thing in the world. "Behold," (said he,) "when I come to the children of Israel, and shall Say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you, and they shall Say unto me, What is his name? what shall I Say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM

"They Say" (saith the Lord in one of the sweetest chapters of Jeremiah, and full of the sweetest promises), (Jeremiah 3:1-25) they Say, "If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted?

Maranatha - It should seem to be rather a proverbial method of Saying, let a man that is guilty of such and such things be an Anathema Maranatha. It is as if the person so pronouncing the punishment meant thereby to Say, it exceeds my power to express what ought to be the consequence of your crime, I therefore leave you to the Lord when he comes
Anathema - Paul echoed similar sentiments in Romans 9:3 , Saying he would be cut off from Christ if that were the means to save his Jewish people. Spiritual gifts, especially ecstatic prophecy, do not cause people to Say “Jesus is anathema” (1 Corinthians 12:3 ; NAS note)

Ossifrage - " The name peres, by which it is called in Hebrew, denotes "to crush, to break;" and this name agrees with our version, which implies "the bone-breaker," which name is given to a kind of eagle, from the circumstance of its habit of breaking the bones of its prey, after it has eaten the flesh: some Say also, that he even swallows the bones thus broken
Thomas - Several of the fathers inform us that he preached in the Indies; and others Say that he preached in Cush, or Ethiopia, near the Caspian sea
Onan - Who shall Say the numbers which since his days have fallen into it? And who shall calculate the army which by Onanism have hastened the termination of a life of sin, and hurried themselves into eternity! Into how many streams of evil, diffusing themselves into all the parts of our poor fallen nature, hath that one deadly poison the old serpent put into Adam manifested itself through all our passions! Blessed Lord Jesus! what, but for thy gracious recovery of our nature, could have saved the wretched race of Adam from the wrath to come
Procession of the Holy Ghost - We may Say to the objector, as Gregory Nazianzen formerly did to his adversary, "Do you tell me how the Father is unbegotten, and I will attempt to tell you how the Son is begotten, and the Spirit proceeds. "The Spirit which is of God;" that is (say the advocates for this doctrine, ) the Spirit which is the same in nature and essence with the Father, and so is said to be of him, or out of him, not as to local separation, but with respect to identity of nature. The Latin church, however, has not scrupled to Say that the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son; but the Greek church chooses to express it thus: the Spirit proceeds from the Father by or through the Son, or he receives of the Son, Galatians 4:6

Amen - ...
And it is worthy our closest remark, that our Lord very frequently began his discourses with this word, and repeated it-"Verily, verily, I Say unto you;" that is, in plain terms, (and indeed, it is the very word in the original) Amen, Amen. And the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 65:16) describes the believer in the gospel church, as Saying, That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; that is, the God Amen. For certain it is, when we Say Amen to the giving of thanks, (see 1 Corinthians 14:16) we do, to all intents and purposes, use the name of Christ, however inattentively it be said. And the apostle Paul, in desiring that no one should ignorantly Say Amen in the church, at the assemblies of the faithful, seems to have same sentiment with John, that every one naming Christ should know Christ
the Much Forgiven Debtor And His Much Love - Now, when the Pharisee which had bidden Him saw it, he spake within himself, Saying, This man, if He were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth Him: for she is a sinner. '...
Simon, I have somewhat to Say unto thee. And he saith, Master, Say on. Wherefore I Say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. When I see any man among you hard and cruel to another man, discourteous and uncivil, not to Say intentionally and studiously insolent, I Say to myself, either that man has not yet been forgiven at all, or he has been forgiven so little that he does not feel it any more than a stone. No mere man, as the Catechism Says, but that Man only who sat that night at Simon's supper-table and said to him,-"Simon, I have somewhat to Say unto thee. ...
Then they that sat at meat with Him began to Say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? He and they had up till now been talking in the most friendly way together as they ate and drank. For He will have to Say to you ten thousand times this same thing: Thy sins, which are still many, are all forgiven thee. Again, and again, and again, He will have to Say it, for, having begun to Say it to you, He will Say it to you to the end. Thy faith hath saved thee, go in peace, He will Say. Wherefore I Say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much

Obey - Seamen Say, the ship will not obey the helm
Corban - The son would Say to his needy parents, "It is a gift- whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me," that is, I have already devoted to God that which you request of me, Mark 7:11 ; and the traditionary teachings of the Jewish doctors would enforce such a vow, and not suffer him to do aught for his parents against it, although it was contrary to nature and reason, and made void the law of God as to honoring parents, Matthew 15:3-9

Religion And Science - Religion and science lie in different provinces and each has its own legitimate field; the former deals mostly with the world of unseen realities which science cannot know, the latter mostly with the world of sense and matter about which religion has little to Say.

Science, Religion And - Religion and science lie in different provinces and each has its own legitimate field; the former deals mostly with the world of unseen realities which science cannot know, the latter mostly with the world of sense and matter about which religion has little to Say.

Salutation - The same expression is the common one among the Arabs to the present day: they Say, Salam lekha, to which the person saluted replies, "With thee be peace," Genesis 29:6 Judges 18:15 , margin.

Kenosis - In like fashion, when Paul said that Christ emptied Himself in Philippians 2:5-11 , he may have been Saying that Jesus gave Himself sacrifically for the sake of others without intending to Say anything about what attributes Christ gave up. That is to Say, Paul was more intent on instructing the Philippians in how to live than in what to believe in this particular passage. Thus, if it was Paul's intention to give ethical rather than doctrinal instruction, some would Say that to use this passage to speak primarily of doctrinal matters is a misuse of Scripture
Necessity - ...
To state all their arguments in this place, would take up too much room; suffice it to Say, that the Anti- necessarians suppose that the doctrine of necessity charges God as the author of sin; that it takes away the freedom of the will, renders man unaccountable, makes sin to be no evil, or morality or virtue to be no good; precludes the use of means, and is of the most gloomy tendency. All necessity, Say they, doth not take away freedom. ...
Nor does it, Says the Necessarian, render man unaccountable, since the Divine Being does no injuries to his rational faculties; and man, as his creature, is answerable to him; besides he has a right to do what he will with his own. Farther, Say they, necessity does not preclude the use of means; for means are no less appointed than the end. Beside, Say they, the Scripture places the doctrine beyond all doubt, Job 23:13-14
Law of Moses - Again, God Says, "You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. In accordance with this, Paul, as a Jew, could Say, "The law was our schoolmaster unto Christ;" and the Lord said, "Had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. This is an important point, for the passage that speaks of the law as the schoolmaster goes on to Say that it was in order that they "might be justified by faith. This theory is however opposed to scripture, which Says, "sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Law gives no power over sin; indeed, no sooner does a law Say that a particular thing must not be done, than a desire arises to do it. Scripture does not Say a word about the Christian being ruled by law; but it Says that grace teaches him how to walk (Titus 2:11,12 ), and because he is under grace sin will not have dominion over him. Having received Christ Jesus the Lord, he is to walk in Him , Colossians 1:10 ; Colossians 2:6 ; and to walk also 'worthy of God,' 1 Thessalonians 2:12 ; indeed his aim should be to Say, with Paul, "To me to live is Christ
Stumbling - "We set out from Argos very early in the morning," Says Hartley, "and were almost eleven hours in reaching Tripolitza. " Speaking of the Tartar, an accredited courier of the Turkish government, under whose guidance he travelled in disguise across the desert from Aleppo to Mosul, he Says, "One day, after riding about four miles from a caravansera, at which we had changed our cattle, I found that a most execrably bad horse had fallen to my lot. '— ‘I dare Say you have,' returned I, ‘love of your ease, and fear of your bones. His horse carried him clear over all; and though mine was every minute stumbling and nearly down, yet, with a dexterity inexpressible and a vigour altogether amazing, he kept him up by the bridle, and, I may Say, carried him gallantly over every thing. At all this I was very much astonished; and, toward the end, as much pleased as astonished; which he perceiving, cried out frequently and triumphantly, ‘Behold, Frank, behold!' and at last, drawing in the horses, stopping short, and looking me full in the face, he exclaimed, ‘Frank, what Say you now?' For some time I was incapable of making him any answer, but continued surveying him from head to foot as the most extraordinary savage I had ever beheld; while he stroked his whiskers with great self-complacency and composure, and nodded his head every now and then, as much as to Say, ‘Look at me! Am I not a very capital fellow?' We alighted on the brow of a small hill, whence was to be seen a full and uninterrupted prospect of the country all round. The interpreter coming up, the Tartar called to him, and desired him to explain to me carefully the meaning of what he was about to Say. ' As soon as the interpreter had explained this to me, ‘Well,' continued the Tartar, ‘what does he Say to it now?'— ‘Why, I Say,' returned I, ‘that you have spoken good sense and sound reason; and I am obliged to you
the Publican - He had nothing to Say in his prayers of which he had any reason to be ashamed. He needed not to leave His seat where He was teaching and healing, because at all that distance, and notwithstanding all that surging multitude, He knew in Himself what those two men were thinking and what they were Saying. Were it not such an exception to his usual insight and sympathy, I would be tempted to Say that such a censure of such a saint is, to my mind, and I think I have the mind of Christ, a far worse sign of Coleridge than all the opium he ever ate, and all the procrastinated work he died and left unfinished. O poor publican! O publican to be pitied both of God and man! God be merciful to all men everywhere and in every day who know the plague of their own heart!...
Why did our Lord not Say sanctified? Or, still better, why did He not Say both justified and sanctified? Why did He confine Himself to justified? It was sanctification that the publican needed even more than justification, and our Lord knew that quite well. If our Lord in His great mercy to the publican's misery had only said sanctified what a happy worshipper the publican would have been from that day! And what a happy house he would have had at home from that day! Now, why did our Lord not Say the word? Why did He not both Say it and do it to this poor wretch on the spot? He would need to have a good reason to show why He did not Say sanctified. Perhaps He tried to Say sanctified that day in the temple and could not. Who can tell but that He was so carried away with pity for the poor publican that He said Father, if it be possible, let us send this miserable man to his house sanctified? And perhaps He had to submit and Say, Thy will be done. And, as many of yourselves know, it takes many a visit to the temple, and many a far-off stand in the temple, and many a penitent prayer both in the temple and in your own house, and many a beat of the breast everywhere, before the exceedingly complex work of sanctification can be safely said to be begun in you, not to Say finished in you
the Man Who Found Treasure Hid in a Field - And the kingdom of heaven, Says our Lord, is like treasure hid in the field of this world. Our Lord bought this world, so to Say, for the sake of the elect souls that lay hidden in it, till He was able to Say,-"As thou, Father, hast given thy Son power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given Him. "...
Incomparable Thomas Goodwin,-incomparable to me, at any rate,-says that Paul will be the second man in heaven, the Man Christ Jesus being the first man. Kinchin," Says George Whitefield, "was minister of Dummer in Hampshire, and being likely to be chosen Dean of Corpus Christi College, he desired me to take his place and officiate for him till that affair should be decided. "...
As I was Saying, a minister who would dig up the hidden treasure out of his pulpit and pastoral fields must sell all his time and all his tastes; all his thoughts by day and all his dreams by night. But then, by that time, he will begin to have a people about him of whom he will be able to Say-"What is my hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?" And then that all-surrendered minister will be summoned forward at the coming of his Lord, not any more to shame and everlasting contempt, but his Lord will Say to him on that day when He makes up His jewels-'That jewel is yours,' his Lord will Say: 'for that soul and that would have been lost to Me, but for your self-denying ministry. What a promise! you Say as you read alone, and you read no more that night. What a consolation! you Say. What a psalm! and you Say and sing it all that week after, and at all times and in all places. What a name for you is the Name of your God! you Say. And, like Moses on the Mount, you make haste and bow your head and worship, and Say,-Pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance. Moses did not Say-What a text for next Sabbath! And you have no temptation to Say that either. Verily, verily, I Say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will give it you
So - " (8) In Hebrews 7:9 epos, "a word," is used in a phrase rendered "so to Say;" see WORD , Note (1)
Entangle - have the word in 2 Thessalonians 1:4 , the most authentic have anecho, "to endure;" (b) with the meaning to set oneself against, be urgent against, said of the plotting of Herodias against John the Baptist, Mark 6:19 , RV, "set herself against," AV, "had a quarrel against;" of the effort of the scribes and Pharisees to provoke the Lord to Say something which would provide them with a ground of accusation against Him, Luke 11:53 , RV, "to press upon," marg
Procrastination: Deprecated - O unconverted friends, for God's sake, do not Say, 'Lie by till morning
Bidding Prayer - 20, has preserved the form as it was in use before the reformation, which was this:...
After the preacher had named and opened his text, he called on the people to go to their prayers, telling them what they were to pray for: Ye shall pray, Says he, for the king, the pope, &c. After which, all the people said their beads in a general silence, and the minister kneeled down likewise, and said his: they were to Say a paternoster, ave maria, &c
Amen - In the primitive churches it was common for the general audience to Say "Amen" at the close of the prayer (1 Corinthians 14:16 )
Near - We Say, a house stands near a river a friend sits near me the man fell and was near destruction
None - This is none other but the house of God we now Say, no other
Hosanna - Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 7:9-10; Israel shall join the Hosanna cry and Say, "Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord" (Luke 19:38; Luke 13:35; Psalms 118:25-26; Isaiah 12:1-3)
Resurrection - The sepulchre shines with alight brighter than the sun, and death grows fair, as we Say, in full assurance of faith, 'I know that my brother shall rise again
March - We Say, the army marched, or the troops marched
Man: Natural State of - ...
'Well, what do you Say now?' ...
'Just what I said before
Administration - ...
It is more usual to Say, letters of administration
Aged Poor Society - Apart from the benevolent activities still carried on by this old London Catholic charity, its survival serves as a link between some of the more widely known charities of today and those of the penal times when it was a capital offense for a priest to Say Mass
Tirzah - ...
It is said to have been a beautiful, spot, and the name Tirzah, which, comes from a root, signifying somewhat grateful, evidently seems, to Say so, Jesus compares his church to it
Abel-Shittim - That is to Say, it was in the Arabah or Jordan valley opposite Jericho, at that part which belonged to Moab, where the streams from the eastern mountains flourished many acacias
Nahash - Josephus relates that Nahash had successfully oppressed the tribes on the east of the Jordan, which gave him self-confidence in making his terms to Jabesh-gilead; and Says that Nahash was slain. The Rabbis Say that Nahash was another name for Jesse (as in the margin); others suppose Nahash was Jesse's wife; and again others judge that Nahash was a former husband of Jesse's wife
Consume - So in English we Say, it takes up time, that is, it consumes time
Creature - Thus we Say, he was in trouble and no creature was present to aid him
Defeat - And 17...
We Say, our dearest hopes are often defeated
Error - Say not, it was an error
Stumble - Someone seeing him go might Say, "If he can patronize the saloon, so can I," and so that one would be led astray because he did not know the facts

Remark - ) To express in words or writing, as observed or noticed; to state; to Say; - often with a substantive clause; as, he remarked that it was time to go
Apollos - He laboured at Corinth, following the apostle Paul, who could hence Say 'I have planted, Apollos watered,' and subsequently he greatly desired Apollos to revisit Corinth. His name is associated with that of Paul in connection with the party spirit at Corinth, which the apostle strongly rebuked; but from his Saying he had 'transferred these things to himself and to Apollos,' it would appear that the Corinthians had local leaders, under whom they ranged themselves, whom he does not name; and that he taught them the needed lesson, and established the general principle by the use of his own name and that of Apollos rather than the names of their leaders
Almond, Almond Tree - In Ecclesiastes 12:5 , when everything seems to be decaying instead of 'the almond tree shall flourish,' it may be translated 'the almond tree shall be despised;' others Say, 'cause loathing;' others prefer to compare the almond tree to the white head of an old man hastening to the grave
Evening - ...
Second, in a late poetical use, the word can mean “night”: “When I lie down, I Say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? And I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day” (Job 7:4)
ai, Hai - Travellers Say that when on the spot, the Biblical narrative of the capture of Ai can be vividly realised
Booz - Some Say there were three of this name, the son, the grandson, and the great grandson, of Salmon: the last Booz was Ruth's husband, and the father of Obed
Bdellium - The rabbins are followed by Reland in calling it a crystal; but some, instead of bedolah, read berolah, changing the ד into ר , which are not always easily distinguished, and are often mistaken by transcribers; and so render it the beryl, which, Say they, is the prime kind of crystal
Corban - Theophrastus Says that the Tyrians forbad the use of such oaths as were peculiar to foreigners, and particularly of corban, which, Josephus informs us, was used only by the Jews. For when a child was asked to relieve the wants of his father or mother, he would often Say, "It is a gift," corban, "by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;" that is, I have devoted that to God which you ask of me; and it is no longer mine to give, Mark 7:11
Baruch - After the death of Jeremiah, the rabbins Say, he returned to Babylon
Gamaliel - The Talmundists Say that he was the son of Rabbi Simeon, and grandson of Hillel, the celebrated teacher of the law, and that upon his death the glory of the law departed

Jealous - We Say, a young man is jealous of the woman he loves, or jealous of his rival
Tabernacle - TAB'ERNACLE, To dwell to reside for a time to be housed as we Say, Christ tabernacled in the flesh
Rewards - ...
Rewards are not held out as a motive before the soul: each should be able to Say, The love of Christ constraineth me
Feel - Blind men Say black feels rough, and white feels smooth. ...
So, we Say, a thing feels soft or hard, or it feels hot or cold
Say, Utter, Affirm - ...
Ne'ûm (נְאֻם, Strong's #5002), “to Say, utter an affirmation, speak. ” The word is a verbal form of the verb ne'ûm, which occurs only once in the entire Old Testament: “Behold, I am against the prophets, saith [1] the Lord, that use their tongues, and Say [2], He saith [1]” ( Saying, Prophesy not” (Amos 2:11-12). ...
Ne'ûm (נְאֻם, Strong's #5002), “utterance; Saying. 30:1) in the Sayings of Agur, the usage throughout the Old Testament is virtually limited to a word from God. , “this is what … Says”)
Shall - ) The same relation is transferred to either second or third person in such phrases as "You Say, or think, you shall go;" "He Says, or thinks, he shall go. " After a conditional conjunction (as if, whether) shall is used in all persons to express futurity simply; as, if I, you, or he shall Say they are right
Emmanuel - We pause over this precious name, as well we may, before we presume to enter upon it, or to Say what immense blessings are folded up in it. Who, indeed, can undertake to Say? Nevertheless, if what we propose be wholly scriptural, and supported by Scripture authority, we can never err
Quantity - Thus we Say, a quantity of earth, a quantity of water, a quantity of air, of light, of heat, of iron, of wood, of timber, of corn, of paper. But we do not Say, a quantity of men, or of horses, or of houses for as these are considered as separate individuals or beings, we call an assemblage of them, a number of multitude
Load - Thus we lay a load on a beat or on a man's shoulders, or on a cart or wagon and we Say, a light load, heavy load. Jove lightened of its load th' enormous mass - ...
In a figurative sense, we Say, a load of care or grief a load of guilt or crimes
Conscience - An act, Say they, would be represented as an agent, whereas conscience is a testimony. To Say it is a habit, is to speak of it as a disposition acting, which is scarce more accurate than ascribing one act to another; and, besides, it would be strange language to Say that conscience itself is a habit. The consciences of many are of no higher character; and though we must not Say a man cannot be saved with such a conscience, yet such a conscience is not so perfect as it might be
Tares - ...
I would only beg to add a short observation upon the subject, and just to Say, under this view, how mistaken must be the notion of those, who fancy that when our Lord said, Let both grow together until the harvest, that this was meant to Say, perhaps the tares if continued under the means of grace might become good corn. "In the time of harvest, (saith the Lord Jesus) I will Say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind therein bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn
Testimony - If, for example, we consider the common and general acceptation of the word law, surely the Psalmist David could never be supposed to Say, that the law of Moses as a covenant of works was his delight and joy, as he saith the law was in this Psalm, (Psalms 119:72; Psa 119:97, etc. Jesus might well Say, and Jesus alone could Say it, "I delight to do thy will O my God, yea thy law is within my heart"—or as the margin renders it, "in the midst of my bowels," (Psalms 40:8) —meaning that it was wrapt up, yea forming his very nature, from the entire holiness of that nature. (See Exodus 16:33-34) Now, as the whole of this service plainly typified Christ, we cannot be at a loss to discover what is meant under the term of testimonies in this Psalm, when we hear the blessed speaker Saying, "Thy testimonies have I taken as mine heritage for ever, for they are the rejoicing of my heart
Faith - James 2:14-26, "though a man Say he hath faith, and have not works, can (such a) faith save him?" the emphasis is on "say," it will be a mere Saying, and can no more save the soul than Saying to a "naked and destitute brother, be warmed and filled" would warm and fill him. ...
"Yea, a man (holding right views) may Say, Thou hast faith and I have works, show (exhibit to) me (if thou canst, but it is impossible) thy (alleged) faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works
Ground - We never Say a shovel full or a load of ground. We Say under ground, but not under earth and we speak of the globe as divided into land and water, not into ground and water. We Say, the produce or fruits of the ground, of the earth, or of land
Oath - ...
An oath is a solemn appeal to God, as to an all-seeing witness that what we Say is true, and an almighty avenger if what we Say be false, Hebrews 6:16 . Similar phrases are these: "As the Lord liveth," Judges 8:19 "Before God I lie not," Romans 9:1 ; "I Say the truth in Christ," 1 Timothy 2:7 ; "God is my record," Philippians 1
Ananias And Sapphira - 'Lay it at Peter's feet,' said Sapphira to her hesitating husband, 'and Say that you are very sorry that the land did not sell for far more. "...
What a world this is we live in! What a red-hot furnace of sin and of sanctification is this world! How we all tempt and try and test and stumble one another in everything we Say and do! Barnabas cannot sell his estate in Cyprus and lay the price of it at Peter's feet, but by doing so he must immediately become the sudden death of Ananias and Sapphira. Say, A Friend. Say, A Well-wisher. Or, if you are a popular author, Say, and not a landowner in these days; publish your books without your name. Do you know the premonition, the sensation, the smell, so to Say, when Satan approaches you to fill your heart? And what do you Say to him? What do you do to him? Do you set a chair for him? Do you lay a cover and set glasses for him? Do you share your pillow with him? "Ah! you are there again, my man!" So an old saint in the congregation salutes Satan as often as her practised nostrils catch the beginning of his brimstone on her stairhead. ...
The stroke was sudden, and, as we Say, severe. We Say with Ananias: 'This is all I can spare; indeed, this is all I possess. "Yea, for so much," we Say, till the feet of the young men are almost at our door. At the same time, Jeremy Taylor, who has given immense learning and intellect to all such cases, Says that God sometimes accepts a temporal death in room of an eternal. When some great financial genius, Say, like Dr
Paul as a Believing Man - There is a time and there is a season for everything, Says Paul. And I am determined, he Says, that so far as I am concerned you shall know nothing in this life, at any rate, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. A great Pauline divine, the greatest indeed that I know, was wont to Say that there are many things in our Lord far more wonderful and far more glorious than even His Cross. But Paul never Says that. Or if he is ever carried away to Say that, he instantly takes it back and Says, God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of Christ. But now, he Says, I am crucified with Christ: with Christ who loved me, and gave Himself for me. And that wrath of God would awaken in his conscience, and would assault his faith, just as that same wrath of God assaults your faith and mine every day we live: if, that is to Say, we live at all. "I, through the law," he said, or tried to Say, every time the law clutched at him as its prisoner-"I through the law am dead to the law. ' But the judge would Say to all such too-late accusations that the murderer was dead already. "Let a man examine himself!" Paul kept Saying to me all the week before last, and himself showed me the way. For mark well, what exactly Paul Says. Paul does not Say that he once was, or that he had been, crucified with Christ, but that he is, at present, so crucified. That is as much as to Say that as long as Paul has any sin left so long will Christ be crucified. Learn to Say, and then Say it continually till you Say it in your very dreams,-I am crucified with Christ! And then you will be able to work in peace, and to eat and drink in peace, and to go out and in in peace, and to lie down in peace, and rise up. And we also will Say it; I, at any rate, will Say it with Paul
the Man Who Cast Seed Into the Round And it Grew up he Knew Not How - That is to Say, he is always autobiographical, always experimental, always scientific, always masculine, always full of bone and blood, always strength itself, always satisfying. "A man's capacity," he Says, "to expound particular portions of Scripture depends largely on his religious experiences. Viewed as a repetition in parabolic form of the Psalmist's counsel,-Wait, I Say, on the Lord. You sometimes Say to me that you do not know what style is. Well, learn this little parable by heart, and Say it to yourselves, till you feel the full taste of it in your mouth, and till you instinctively spue out of your mouth everything of a written kind that is not natural, and fresh, and forceful: everything that is not noble, and beautiful, and full of grace and truth, like this parable. And He who did Say it makes us all to feel like little children, with the naturalness, and the simplicity, and the truth, both to nature and to grace, of His exquisite words. Till He is able at every new step in His heavenward way to turn round and Say to us,-"Follow Me. Enough, if, Say thirty or forty years after this, they are come to their full intellectual and spiritual manhood. Enough, if, when we are no longer here to enjoy such masterpieces with them, they are by that time discovering the hid treasure, Say, of Rutherford's Letters, and Guthrie's Saving Interest, and Baxter's Saint's Rest, and Marshall's Gospel Mystery, and William Law's immortal treatises, and are winding up every night with Bishop Andrewes's Private Devotions. Our Lord is so bent upon consoling and comforting His ministers that He almost staggers us with what He here Says about the unbroken peace of mind that every minister of His ought to possess. What a courageous comforter of His over-anxious ministers is Jesus Christ! Cast in the seed, He Says, and take no more trouble about it. Look at this wise sower how he sleeps, Says our Lord to us. We cast the seed of God's word into the earth, and the earth takes it, that is to Say, God takes it, and it springs up, no man knoweth how, and the sowers of the seed least of all. Speak ye comfortably to My ministers, and Say to them that the earth bringeth forth her fruit of herself, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. "Nothing great," Says Epictetus, "is produced suddenly, not even a grape or a fig. If you Say to me that you want a grape or a fig now, I will answer you that you cannot have it; a grape takes time. That is to Say, the thing is for show only; it has no root in itself

Destitution: of London - But, because you have don a little to bless London, and have brought a thousand, three thousand, ten thousand to hear the word of God, are you to sit down and Say, 'It is done
Eternity - "It is a duration, " Says a lively writer, "that excludes all number and computation: days, and months, and years, yea, and ages, are lost in it, like drops in the ocean! Millions of millions of years, as many years as there are sands on the sea-shore, or particles of dust in the globe of the earth, and those multiplied to the highest reach of number, all these are nothing to eternity. They do not bear the least imaginable proportion to it; for these will come to an end, as certainly as a day; but eternity will never, never, never, come to an end! It is a line without end! It is an ocean without a shore! Alas! what shall I Say of it! it is an infinite, unknown something, that neither human thought can grasp, nor human language describe!" Orton on Eternity; Shower on ditto: Davis's Sermons, ser

Mourning - He had to Say to His people, "Rend your heart, and not your garments
Potter - Of the potter scripture Says he treadeth the clay to make it pliable, Isaiah 41:25 ; and he forms his vessel on a wheel. It also illustrates God's sovereignty: "Shall the thing formed Say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?" The potter has full power over the clay
Sanhedrin or Sanhedrim - The early writers do not Say how it was composed; from the N

Mary, Wife of Cleophas - In John 19:25 this Mary is said to be the sister of the Lord's mother, if we allow the word 'and' to separate the persons, which is the most obvious sense; and it is natural that as this is the only place where we read of the Lord's mother having a sister, it should Say who she was
Leopard - Isaiah, describing the happy reign of the Messiah, Says, Isaiah 11:6 , "The leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together.

Heavy - My heavy eyes you Say confess ...
A heart to love and grief inclined. So we Say, a heavy road
Hospitality - Jesus hath already left it upon record, what he will Say in that day when he cometh to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all that believe me in; naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me. "Verily I Say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me
Naaman - He suggested to His audience that they were ready to quote the proverb ‘Physician, heal thyself,’ and to Say, ‘Whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. ’ ‘And (better ‘But’) he said, Verily I Say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country
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. But why was the depression so great now in Gethsemane when He had looked forward to this from the beginning of His ministry, Saying in an early stage of it, ‘The Son of man must be lifted up’ (John 3:14)? Part of the answer to this question must be that our Lord’s mind, being truly human, was liable to those often mysterious alternations of feeling which, in common men, we call changes of mood. At another stage He speaks in quite a different manner, ‘Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I Say? Father, save me from this hour’ (John 12:27). How dark and heavy that was appears in the ‘sweat as it were great drops of blood falling down upon the ground’ (Luke 22:44), in the ‘strong crying and tears’ (Hebrews 5:7), and perhaps as much in these words of His prayer, ‘if it be possible’—in His seeking a possibility of the cup passing from Him, although He had said long before, ‘The Son of man must be lifted up’ (John 3:14), and was to Say soon after, ‘For this cause came I unto this hour’ (John 12:27)
Sinai - Five or six paces from thence they show a stone, whose height is four or five feet, and breadth about three, which they Say is the very stone from whence Moses caused the water to gush out. This stone has twelve holes or channels, which are about a foot wide, from whence they Say the water issued which the Israelites drank. ...
"Sinai," Says Sandys, "has three tops of a marvellous height; that on the west side, where God appeared to Moses in a bush, fruitful in pasturage, far lower than the middlemost, and shadowed when the sun riseth thereon; which is that whereon God gave the law to Moses, and which is now called the Mount of Moses, at the foot of which stands the monastery called St. The third or most easterly summit is called by the religious in those parts, Mount Catherine; on the top of which there is a dome, under which they Say was interred the body of this saint, brought thither by angels after she was beheaded at Alexandria
the Widow With the Two Mites - "O God, thou art my God," she kept Saying to herself all the way up from her own impoverished house with the two mites in her hand; "my soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise Thee with joyful lips, when I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on Thee in the night watches. "Two mites," Says Mark, "make a farthing. What would she have thought if she had been told Who had watched her that day, and what He had said about her, and that we would be reading about her tonight in this far-off island of the sea? As also that her two mites would multiply, all down the ages, into millions upon millions of gold and silver, the same Eyes still watching the process all the time? And what will she think and what will she Say when all that is told from the housetop on that day about her, and about her two mites, by the Judge of all? And still He sits over against the treasury in this temple tonight, and calls unto Him His disciples among us, and Says to us, 'Verily I Say unto you also. And thus it was that this poor widow's mind weighed out for her this never-to-be-forgotten approval and applause of our Lord, "Verily I Say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in than all they which have cast into the treasury. I would have yet to learn the first principles of the grace of God if I were tempted to Say to her to take it away and to buy coals with it. For all the coals in the bowels of all the earth would not warm her heart and mine; and, shall I not Say it, her Master's heart, as her love for these causes of His warms His heart, and hers, and her minister's heart. He who sits over against His treasury here also, will Himself tell you in your hearing that day what He has to Say about these two, and all such like princely minds. " "When I was in France," Says Bacon, "it was said of the Duke of Guise that he was the greatest usurer in all the land, because he had turned all his estates into obligations; meaning that he had left himself nothing, but only had bound great numbers of persons in life-long indebtedness to him. " It is not for the lip of mortal man to Say it, but it is true, that Almighty God holds Himself under obligations to us all, corresponding to all the estates, great or small, that we have spent upon Him and upon His house. It is no irreverence, but only a becoming gratitude and love to Say it, that as I sit at the head of the monthly table of our Deacons' Court I have something in my heart not unlike what was in His heart who sat that day in the treasury of the temple. It is, I shall Say it in your presence, the exceptional intelligence in church matters and in personal religion that has all along, with all its drawbacks, characterised Dr
Levit'Icus - We may not always be able to Say what the exact relation is between the type and the antitype; but we cannot read the Epistle to the Hebrews and not acknowledge that the Levitical priests "served the pattern and type of heavenly things;" that the sacrifices of the law pointed to and found their interpretation in the Lamb of God; that the ordinances of outward purification signified the true inner cleansing of the heart and conscience from dead works to serve the living God

Sun - And hence, under diving teaching, Job could and did Say, that he dared to kiss his hand in token of adoration when he saw the Sun shining, in his strength, or the Moon walking in her brightness.

Long - we Say, a long way, a long distance, a long line, and long hair, long arms. ...
So in composition we Say, long-expected, long-forgot
Shimei - If you had a word to Say for David, Shimei would follow you about also with curses and stones and dust. When our political and ecclesiastical partisans begin to have charity we shall no longer need to offer the Lord's prayer every day, and Say, Thy kingdom come. And who, then, shall Say to the Lord, Why hast Thou done this? Shall the thing formed Say to Him that formed it, Why hast Thou made me thus? O the depth both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord. And when any of his friends, for his protection, or for his peace, or for his comfort would fain remove out of his life aught that tempts and tries him; aught that tramples on him and humbles him; aught that plagues him and vexes him and leads him into sin, like David to Abishai at Bahurim he Says to him, Let it alone, for it is the Lord. You Say to me rare things about design, and adaptation, and environment, and means to ends, and final causes, and what not; and you both astonish and edify me. But if you fear God, and come, I will tell you how He environs my soul, and how He adapts you and all you Say and do, to the good of my soul. But after he has said all that it is possible to Say upon it, he exclaims, Oh! what a deep is here, that created wit cannot take up! Jonathan Edwards takes it up with all his matchless wit in his fine letter to Thomas Gillespie of Carnock, and elsewhere in his golden works. And what do you Say to Shakespeare himself?...
O benefit of ill! now I find trueThat better is by evil still made better!And ruined love, when it is built anew,Grows fairer than at first, more strong, far greater. Death,' Says Thomas Shepard, 'is the very best of all our gospel ordinances. The deathbed Sayings of God's saints have a special interest and a delightful edification to us; but David's last words to Solomon about Shimei-we would pass them by if we could. Those awful words, they Say, are that righteous prophet's explanation and vindication of the too late execution of Shimei by Solomon after his reprieve had come to an end with the death of David. Others, again, and they, too, some of our most conservative and orthodox scholars, Say to us that the text should run in English in this way: 'Hold him not guiltless; at the same time bring not his hoar head down to the grave with blood. But the heart has its reasons, as Pascal Says, and my heart would stretch a considerable point in textual criticism to get Shimei's blood wiped off David's deathbed. We shall have, God helping us, David's Bahurim-mind always in us henceforth amid all those who insult and injure us, and Say all manner of evil against us falsely; and amid all manner of adverse and sore circumstances, so as to see the Lord in it all, and so as to work out our salvation amid it all
Jeremiah - That is to Say, it was the inborn, original, and unparalleled sensibility of Jeremiah's mind and heart that the Lord took up and turned to His own service both in the preaching of this prophet and in the production of this book, which stands to this day second only to the Psalms as the most spiritual book in the Old Testament. 'The heart is my haunt,' Says Wordsworth. And your prophets who Say Peace, peace!-like Law, he called all such preachers so many dancing-masters; and, like Leighton, he called them so many mountebanks, till they smote him, and imprisoned him in the dungeon, and put his feet in the stocks. He who has-I will not Say a full sensibility of the evil of sin, for he would go mad if he had-but a true beginning of such sensibility, he has the making of a true minister of Jesus Christ in him; otherwise he has not, and should at once go to make his bread in some more lawful calling. And if one here and another there should smite you as Pashur smote Jeremiah, Say to him, 'The Lord hath not called thy name Pashur, but Magor-missabib,' and go on with your heart-searching and heart-sanctifying preaching to other people. And oh, believe me, the shame and the remorse of having to hand over your pulpit, and you only beginning to preach! And it all lies in a true and a timely sensibility, and in Saying, The heart is my haunt, till you know the heart, and can preach to it to some purpose. ...
Nazianzen Says somewhere that Jeremiah was both by nature and by grace the most inclined to pity of all the prophets. Which is just to Say over again that he was the most sensitive and the most spiritual. 'There is nothing in all Scripture,' Says Isaac Williams, 'so eloquent of love and sorrow and consolation as the 31st and 33rd chapters of Jeremiah. And this also came to my mind out of North's Plutarch: 'Aristotle has a place where he Says that the wisest men be ever melancholy, as Socrates, Plato, and Hercules were. ' And I have read somewhere also on this matter that 'merely to Say man is to Say melancholy. At any rate, to Say 'man endued by nature with sufficient sensibility, and then by grace with sufficient spiritual sympathy,' is to Say the most profoundly melancholy of men. 'O hear me,' Says the profoundly intellectual and equally spiritual Jacob Behmen in a comforting passage. 'Tears gain everything,' Says Santa Teresa in her autobiography. Till Santa Teresa is amply justified when she Says that tears gain everything. And till I am justified in Saying that Jeremiah at any rate was not a man of a light and elastic nature. Pashur, the chief governor, was deputed on one occasion to tame, as we Say, Jeremiah's pulpit. A familiar or two who Say among themselves, Report, and we will report it. 'I could have used a more adorned style,' Says John Bunyan, in his Grace Abounding, 'but I dared not. When Jesus came into the coasts of Cæsarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Saying, Whom do men Say that I the Son of Man am? And they said, Some Say that thou art John the Baptist; some, Elias; and others, Jeremias
Simeon - 'My son'-one of Simeon's sacred colleagues used to Say to his scholars-'My son, the first thing that you will be examined upon at the day of judgment will be this: What was the salvation that you pursued after? What salvation did you study, and teach, and preach, and yourself seek after when you were still in time and upon the earth?' How happy will it be with old Simeon on that terrible day when he hears this read out over him before men and angels: "The same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Ghost was upon him. ...
And, being full of the Holy Ghost, Simeon went on to Say: "Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel. We Say in amazement at that: What did He ever Say or do that He should be spoken against by any man? He did the very opposite. And they went on so speaking till they were swept on to cry, Crucify Him! not knowing what they were Saying, or why. I had this rule ever present with me, that I was not to wish, nor assent to, nor Say such things of any person whatsoever that I would not have them Say of me
Necessitarians - All necessity, Say they, doth not take away freedom. Farther, Say they, necessity does not preclude the use of means; for means are no less appointed than the end. For instance: necessity is confounded with certainty; but an action may be certain, though free; that is to Say, certain to an omniscient Being, who knows how a free agent will finally resolve; but this certainty is, in fact, a quality of the prescient Being, not that of the action, to which, however, men delusively transfer it. Again: the obedience of Christ unto death was necessary, that is to Say, unless he had died, guilty man could not have been forgiven; but this could not make the act of the Jews who put him to death a necessary act, that is to Say, a forced and constrained one; nor did this necessity affect the act of Christ himself, who acted voluntarily, and might have left man without salvation. Finally: as to the allegation, that the doctrine of free agency puts man's self-determining power upon the throne of the universe, that view proceeds upon notions unworthy of God, as though he could not accomplish his plans without compelling and controlling all things by a fixed fate; whereas it is both more glorious to him, and certainly more in accordance with the Scriptures, to Say that he has a perfect foresight of the manner in which all creatures will act, and that he, by a profound and infinite wisdom, subordinates every thing without violence to the evolution and accomplishment of his own glorious purposes. And they that believe all that the Scripture Says on the one hand, of the eternity of future punishments, and on the other, of God's compassion to sinners, and his solemn assurance that he desires not their death, will find the difficulty greatly increased
Angelus - An indulgence of 100 days is gained when the Angelus with three Hail Marys is said, and a plenary indulgence, conditional upon confession, communion, and prayer for the usual intentions, once a month for those who Say it habitually

Serpent, Brazen - In the absence of a direct statement we cannot Say whether it was Jahweh who was worshipped under the form of the bronze serpent of 2 Kings 18:4 the Nehushtan , or piece of bronze, as it was called
Admiration - We may apply the words of the Lord upon another occasion, and Say,"Because it is marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of the people, should it be also marvellous in mine eyes, saith the Lord of hosts?" (Zechariah 8:6) The Hebrew word, in this instance, is the same as that given of Christ by the prophet, (Isaiah 9:6) when he calls him Wonderful
Chance - When we Say a thing happens by chance, we mean no more than that its cause is unknown to us, and not, as some vainly imagine, that chance itself can be the cause of any thing. "The case of the painter, " Says Chambers, "who, unable to express the foam at the mouth of the horse he had painted, threw his sponge in despair at the piece, and by chance did that which he could not do before by design, is an eminent instance of what is called chance

Rechabites - The Rabbis interpret this to signify that they should minister in the sanctuary, and Say they became united to the Levites; but we find nothing of this in scripture
Caraites - They believe that Messiah is not yet come, and reject all calculations of the time of his appearance:...
yet they Say, it is proper that even every day they should receive their salvation by Messiah, the Son of David
Pine Tree - Nehemiah 8:15 , giving directions for observing the feast of tabernacles, Says, "Fetch olive branches, pine branches, myrtle branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths. The LXX Say cypress. Scheuchzer Says the Turks call the cypress zemin. The author of "Scripture Illustrated" Says," I should prefer the whole species called jasmin, on account of its verdure, its fragrance, and its flowers, which are highly esteemed. In Isaiah 41:19 ; Isaiah 60:13 , the Hebrew word is תדהר ; a tree, Says Parkhurst, so called from the springiness or elasticity of its wood
Boast, Boaster, Boastful - ...

Apple Tree, Apple - Mention of the apple tree occurs in the Authorized Version in ( Song of Solomon 2:3 ; 8:5 ) and Joel 1:12 The fruit of this tree is alluded to in ( Proverbs 25:11 ) and Song of Solomon 2:5 ; 7:8 It is a difficult matter to Say what is the specific tree denoted by the Hebrew word tappuach . On the other hand Dr Royle Says,"The rich color, fragrant odor and handsome appearance of the citron, whether in flower or in fruit, are particularly suited to the passages of scripture mentioned above
House - Thus we Say, the house of lords or peers of Great Britain the house of commons the house of representatives. Hence we Say, there is a sufficient number of representatives present to form a house
Frontlets - By frontiers between the eyes, they Say, was shadowed, that all the Lord commanded should be continually before their eyes, that they might never lose sight of his precepts. If the reader will consult those chapters, he will find four distinct precepts; which four precepts they Say, were marked on four pieces of a kind of skin or parchment, and wore on their foreheads
Hagar - The rabbins Say she was Pharaoh's daughter; but Chrysostom asserts that she was one of those slaves which Pharaoh gave to Abraham, Genesis 12:16 . They call her in eminency, Mother Hagar, and maintain that she was Abraham's lawful wife; the mother of Ishmael, his eldest son; who, as such, possessed Arabia, which very much exceeds, Say they, both in extent and riches, the land of Canaan, which was given to his younger son Isaac
Seven - Isaiah 4:1 , Says that seven women should lay hold on one man, to ask him to marry them. Hannah, the mother of Samuel, Says, 1 Samuel 2:5 , that she who was barren should have seven children. God threatens his people to smite them seven times for their transgressions, Leviticus 26:24 , that is to Say, several times. The Psalmist, speaking of very pure silver, Says it is "purified seven times,"...
Psalms 12:6 . Peter asks our Saviour, Matthew 18:21-22 , How many times should he forgive his brother? till seven times? And Christ answers him, I Say not only seven times, but seventy times seven; meaning, as often as he may offend, however frequent it may be
Trade - But we never Say, the trade of a farmer or of a lawyer or physician. Thus we Say, man treats with another for his farm, but cannot trade with him
Reap - Now the disciples were to go and put on, as we Say, "the finishing touches. Now the disciples were to go forth pointing to Him and Saying, the hour has come, the Messiah has arrived, and you must believe on Him. If we Say very little about the Saviour, we shall expect little results. If we Say much about Him, we may expect large results
Paul as a Controversialist - Coleridge Says that while Luther was by no means so perfect a gentleman as Paul, yet the Reformer was almost as great a man of genius. And Luther gives us a taste both of his own genius and of his own gentlemanliness also, in what he Says so often about Paul. Luther is always Saying such things as these about Paul. I do not deny that; only, I must Say I have never known a case of it. Tertullian has a Saying to the effect that some men are as good as Christian men already, just by their birth of their mother. I did not Say that the Holy Ghost could not make you, and make you behave like, a Christian gentleman, both at home and abroad. And I suppose every old minister who has learned anything in the school of life would Say the same thing, to every young minister especially. Oh, but you Say, So-and-so will not leave you alone, Well, my argument is not that, but this. "They Say. What do they Say? Let them Say. " Do not you even Say so much as Paul said. Do not Say that their judgment is just. Santa Teresa is not one of the ladies of our Scottish covenant, but this is what she Says on the matter in hand: "The not excusing of ourselves is a perfect quality, and of great merit. What about being blamed by all men, if only we stand at the last blameless before Thee!"...
"Doing nothing by prejudice or by partiality," Says the apostle, still insisting on this same matter. While, if any writer or speaker had a single word to Say for that fallen idol and for his policy, they were either rogues or fools. To Butler every day for that great Saying of his-"Let us remember that we differ as much from other men as they differ from us
Thomas - If "to Say man is to Say melancholy," then to Say Thomas, called Didymus, is to Say religious melancholy. The disciples were all sick at heart with hope deferred; as also with the terrible questionings that would sometimes arise in their hearts, and would not be silenced; all kinds of questionings about their more and more mysterious Master; and about His more and more mysterious, and more and more stumbling, Sayings, both about Himself and about themselves. "All His disciples minister to Him," Says Newman; "and as in other ways, so also in giving occasion for the words of grace which proceed from His mouth. It was not all that you Say it was. And worst of all when his risen Master humbled Himself to meet Thomas's unbelieving words and to satisfy them! Thomas would have killed himself with shame and self-condemnation, had it not been given him at that grandest moment of his whole life to Say, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus saith unto him, "Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed!"...
Now, my brethren, do you clearly understand and accept this peculiar blessedness of believing without seeing? Do you clearly see and fully accept the blessedness of a strong and an easy acting faith in the things of Christ? Faith is always easy where love and hope are strong. You will be horrified when it is told you what your whole life, and your whole heart, and all your desires and hopes Say when words are put upon them. They all Say, 'I will not believe till the last trump awakens me, and the graves are opened, and the great white throne is set. Though vexing thoughts may seem to last,Let not thy soul be quite o'ercast;Soon will He show thee all His wounds and Say,Long have I known thy name: know thou My face alway
the Man Who Had Not on a Wedding Arment - You have never been much in good society, not to Say in such society as a crowned head keeps, and it would not be to be wondered at if you scarcely slept with anxiety till it was all over and you were safely home again. And who would blame you for all that solicitude? Who would Say that you were anxious over much? We would all envy you for your high honour, but we would all be thankful that we had not to go through your ordeal. And as often as we thought of your certainty to make some terrible mistake, we would Say to ourselves-Better him than me. What else, in the name of sin and salvation, would you expect to find them reading on such a night and in such a week! And all the week they will have among their choicest books some classic on the communion, Say like Robert Bruce, and they will work their soul-saving way through that great book again. I have not read Bruce so often, I am ashamed to Say, as Jowett had read Boswell. "Therefore we must," Says Jeremy Taylor, "before every communion especially, remember what differences or jealousies are between us and any one else, and recompose all such disunions, and cause right understandings between each other. And have something suitable in your mind the last thing on Saturday night that you are to Say the first thing on Sabbath morning. Think you hear what she Says to her Risen Lord, and what He Says to her. ...
And then, when your Saviour Says to you after supper, Know you what I have done to you? you will have your answer ready. My blessed Lord, you will Say, I know only too well what Thou hast done for me. And yet, you will Say,-I am not in hell, but at the Lord's Table!...
And then, with all that possessing your heart, you will go home from the Lord's Table a new creature
Badger - ...
Others Say it is the halicore, a Red Sea fish, which still is used by the Arabs to make soles for shoes and like purposes; called dahash , like tachash
Faith: Appropriating - I once heard a father tell, that when he removed his family to a new residence, where the accommodation was much more ample, and the substance much more rich and varied than that to which they had previously been accustomed, his youngest son, yet a lisping infant, ran round every room, and scanned every article with ecstasy, calling out, in childish wonder at every new sight, 'Is this ours, father? and is this ours?' The child did not Say 'yours,' and I observed that the father while he told the story was not offended with the freedom. When the glories of heaven burst upon his view, he does not stand at a distance, like a stranger, Saying, 'O God, these are thine
Sin: Power Over the Unregenerate - We may Say of sins as Longfellow of birds of prey, in his song of Hiawatha ...
'Never stoops the soaring vulture On his quarry in the desert, ...
On the sick or wounded bison, But another vulture watching, From his high aerial look-out Sees the downward plunge and follows; And a third pursues the second, Coming from the invisible ether, First a speck, and then a vulture Till the air is dark with pinions
Sin: One the Souls Ruin (2) - ...
Presently, an old elder tree said, Flowers, shake off your caterpillars!' ...
'Why?' said a dozen altogether: for they were like some children, who always Say 'Why,' when they are told to do anything: bad children those! ...
The elder said, 'If you don't, they'll eat you up alive

So we Say, to deliver goods to a carrier to deliver a letter to deliver possession of an estate
Fresh - Having the color and appearance of young thrifty plants lively not impaired or faded as when we Say, the fields look fresh and green
Horse - We Say, a thousand horse, a regiment of horse
Infants - "Various opinions, " Says an acute writer, "concerning the future state of infants have been adopted. Some think, all dying in infancy are annihilated; for, Say they, infants, being incapable of moral god or evil, are not proper objects of reward or punishment. 2: Robinson's Claude; Gillard and William's Essays of Infant Salvation; An Attempt to elucidate Romans 5:12 , by an anonymous writer; Watts's Ruin and Recovery, p
Whisper - ) To utter in a low and nonvocal tone; to Say under the breath; hence, to mention privately and confidentially, or in a whisper
Cletus or Anacletus, Bishop of Rome - Eusebius calls him Anencletus, and Says that he was succeeded in the see of Rome by Clement in the twelfth year of Domitian, having himself sat there twelve years. Eusebius indeed nowhere Says that he succeeded Linus, or was the second bp. Westcott Says (Preface to Lightfoot), "Perhaps it is not too much to Say that the question of the order of the first five bps
Life - Sin having come in, this life is forfeited and God claims it, Saying, "surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. This answers the objection of those who, wishing to deny eternal punishment, Say that 'living for ever' is only spoken of the Christian, as in John 6:51,58
Fool - Our Lord seems to have used the term in a sense somewhat peculiar in Matthew 5:22 : "Whosoever shall Say to his brother, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire

Greatness - This is admittedly a difficult Saying. —Christ has less to Say about His own greatness than about that of His followers. Men’s fame consists in what others Say about them; Christians’ greatness consists in what they themselves are. But upon the second consideration, that is to Say, upon their character, their claim to greatness wholly depends. That is to Say, He was not only a man, but also the perfect representation of mankind. ...

Some Say it was a parable, and that a table did not actually come down; but most consider that a real table descended. Some Say on her sleeve, others on her neck, some on her womb.

Some Say she went with Joseph and the child to Damascus, to the house of a rich man, who protected and provided for them. God told Jesus to tell people first, that ‘God is one without a partner,’ then to tell them of the coming of Mohammed as a prophet, and Say: ‘A prophet will come after me, Ahmad by name. Simon said: ‘Doctors do this; what other proof have you?’ ‘Jesus knows what people eat, and drink, and Say in their houses. ’ Simon then said to the king: ‘If this is so, it is advisable that your honour should send for Jesus, and see whether what Thomas Says is right: if he raises the dead he is a true prophet. Salman al-Farisi Says that when all the sick in Nasibin were healed, the people asked Jesus to raise the dead. ’...
Some Say that the Jews, by the advice of that bad king, and by means of an old Apostle, seized Jesus and imprisoned him all night, and in the morning prepared a cross on which to crucify him. All historians Say Mary was then alive. Others Say the Jews watched and guarded the cave where Jesus was, but Jesus at night was taken up under cover of darkness. ...
Others Say the Jews imprisoned him with eighteen men in a house. Sayous, Jésus-Christ d’après Mahomet, Paris, 1880. In the works of these writers the name of ‘Isâ figures very frequently, the Sayings and doings assigned to Him being sometimes traceable to the Gospels, but often assigned in different works to a variety of persons
Turtle - The Holy Ghost hath been pleased to Say so much concerning this bird in his sacred word, that I think it a duty, as well as a pleasure, to enquire somewhat concerning a bird so particularly recommended to our notice. But if the passage had meant to Say, that the Holy Ghost descended in the shape and form of adore, the words would have been very different. Every one, that knows the original, knows that the words are (osei peristeran), which is, as the words are rendered in our Testament, like a dove; but if it had been meant to Say, that the Holy Ghost came down in the shape and form of a dove, the words ought to have been, osei peristeras. " (1 John 5:7) Here was Jesus in the act of being baptized; here was the Holy Ghost descending like a dove, and lighting upon him; and here was the voice of God the Father from heaven Saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased

The Pauline principle, ‘If thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord’ (Romans 10:9), was decisive on that point, to Say nothing of our Lord’s evident dislike for secret disciples
Truth - " (1 John 5:20) For surely Jesus is the whole sum and substance of all the truths of God; in his divine nature the true God, and eternal life; in his human nature the true man, whom it behoved to be made like unto his brethren in all things; and in the union of both, the true glory-man, and only Mediator between God and man, the man, Christ Jesus, Hail, blessed Lord!

Lord! I would Say with the disciples, evermore give me this bread
Splendor - The basic significance of “splendor and majesty” with overtones of superior power and position is attested in the application of this word to kings: “Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, Saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, Saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory!” ( Say “The glory of his nostrils is terrible” (Job 39:20)

Achan - Balak's gold had long before now brought Balaam the soothsayer across the plains of Mesopotamia, and the gold and silver of Jericho had also drawn toward that city the travelling dealers in the woven work of the Babylonian looms. Each of the twelve tribes of Israel had its own regiment, as we would Say, marching and camping and entering battle under its own ensign; and thus it was that when the armies of Israel marched round Jericho on the way to their miraculous conquest of that city the standard of the tribe of Judah led the sacred host. As A Kempis Says, the seductive thing got into Achan's imagination, and the devil's work was done. It is better to go to heaven like a blind man led by a dog, Says our Lord; ten times better than to dance all your days down to hell with Babylonian bangles on and all ornaments. Miss Rossetti is writing to young ladies, it is true; but what she Says to them it will do us all good to hear.

For the books we now forbear to read, we shall one day be endued with wisdom and knowledge. Lay it out and Say,-Indeed I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done. And if you do not know what more to Say, if you are speechless beside that accursed thing, try this; Say this. Ask and Say, Is thy Name indeed Jesus? Dost thou indeed save found-out men from their sins? Art thou still set forth to be a propitiation? Art thou truly able to save to the uttermost? For I am the chief of sinners, Say. Lie down on the floor of your room,-you need not think it too much for you to do that, or that it is an act unworthy of your manhood to do it; the Son of God did it for you on the floor of Gethsemane, Yes, lie down on the floor of your room, lay your head in the dust of it, and Say this about yourself: Say that you, naming yourself, are the offscouring of all men.

Socinians - They deny the doctrines of satisfaction and imputed righteousness, and Say, that Christ only preached the truth to mankind, set before them in himself an example of heroic virtue, and sealed his doctrines with his blood. Some of them likewise maintain the sleep of the soul, which, they Say, becomes insensible at death, and is raised again with the body at the resurrection, when the good shall be established in the possession of eternal felicity, while the wicked shall be consigned to a fire that will not torment them eternally, but for a certain duration proportioned to their demerits. of early Opinions and Disquisitions; Lindsay in his Historical View of Unitarianism; Carpenter's Unitarianism; and Belsham's Answer to Wilberforce

Gate - Later, the temple had large openings between its various courts: “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and Say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord” ( Says: “The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved” (i. ...
The “gates” were the place where local courts convened: “And if the man like not to take his brother’s wife, then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and Say, My husband’s brother refuseth …” (
Saturninus - Irenaeus Says that Saturninus like Menander ascribed the ultimate origin of things to a Father unknown to all; and taught that this Father made angels archangels powers authorities but that the world and the things therein were made by a certain company of seven angels in whom no doubt we are to recognize the rulers of the seven planetary spheres. But according to the Ophite story it is not the Supreme Power, but Ialdabaoth, the chief of the creative company, who bestows the breath of life; and these angels Say, as in Genesis, "Let us make man after our image. Then the Supreme Father sent a Saviour to destroy the power of the God of the Jews and the other Archons; and to save those who had the spark of life in them—that is to Say, the good
the Woman Who Took Leaven And Hid it in Three Measures of Meal - And thus it was that after Joseph had struck the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that was in the basin, and after the whole family had hurriedly eaten each a portion of the pascal lamb, and a piece of the unleavened bread, at that appointed moment the eldest son of the house came forward and said, Father, what mean you by this service? What mean you by the blood, and the unleavened bread, and the bitter herbs? And Joseph would Say, It is the Lord's passover, because He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when He smote the Egyptians and delivered our houses. As if He were asking some of them to help Him out with His great subject, He said to them-"Whereunto shall I go on to liken the kingdom of God?" And when none of them had a word more to Say concerning the inwardness, and the hiddenness, and the all-assimilating power, of that kingdom, He called to mind a former reflection of His own which came to Him one day beside His mother's kneading-trough. Now, what did He mean by that Saying, do you suppose? What would you Say was the leaven of the Pharisees? I do not know any more than you do, but I will tell you what I think. On the other hand, humility, that is to Say disesteem of a man's self, is so much good leaven hidden in a good man's heart. " That is to Say, he who at all rightly knows himself is done for ever with all self-esteem. I do not take it upon me to Say how far it is at work in any of you. I will not insist on what you call introspection, but I for one both feel and confess the truth of His words when my Lord Says to me-Preacher, Beware! lest having discoursed so beautifully on humility to others, you yourself, through your self-esteem, should be a castaway from the kingdom of God. Malice is bad blood, as we Say. Ah! it is easy Saying purge it out. ...
It is surely very striking to discover that while our Lord Says so plainly that the kingdom of God is like leaven, yet both He, and His best Apostle, descend into the kingdom of Satan for all their best instances, and all their most pungent applications of the leaven. As much as to Say-find out more and better instances, and illustrations, and verifications, for yourselves. And His example, and Paul's example, would seem to Say to all preachers-give your people one or two illustrations taken from things they are only too well acquainted with already, and then leave them to prosecute the parable further for themselves. Would, said Moses, that all the Lord's people were prophets! And I will leave this parable where our Lord and His Apostle left it, only Saying over it and over you, Would that all the Lord's people wore expositors and preachers, and that out of their own observation and experience!...
the Sower Who Went Forth to Sow - " But He would answer to His mother,-"How is it that ye sought Me? Wist ye not that I must be about My Father's business?" So would His mother Say to Him, and so would He answer her, as often as she sought for Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance; while, all the time, He was out in the fields; now with the ploughman, and now with the sower, and now with the reaper, and now with the husbandman who had his fan in his hand with which he was thoroughly purging his floor. And as He walked and talked with the ploughman, and with the sower, and with the reaper, the Spirit of all truth would descend into His heart and would Say to Him that all that husbandry He had been observing so closely was in all its processes and operations, not unlike the Kingdom of Heaven in all its processes, and in all its operations, and in all its experiences. ...
"The seed is the Word of God," Says our Lord. That is to Say, every true preacher sows the Word of God with both his hands, and he sows nothing else but the Word of God. But, then, there is no pulpit duty more difficult than just to Say the right word of understanding at the right moment, and not a word too much or too little. In that house, after the psalm and the scripture and the prayer, the head of the house remains on his knees for, Say, five or six seconds after he utters the Amen. ' And, then, to keep His ministers from being puffed up with such idle praise as yours, God Says to them-"Thou son of man, the children of thy people are still talking of thee by the walls and in the doors of their houses. This is God's house, and that honest hearer has come to hear what God will Say to him tonight. Now, when God's Spirit Says, Thou art the man! Admit it. Receive this word into a good and honest heart, and Say, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. Say, this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Say that God has been found of one man, at any rate, who did not come here tonight to seek Him
Word - , Luke 7:7 ; 1 Corinthians 14:9,19 ; (b) a Saying or statement, (1) by God, e. , "(as to Say) a word," RV, "(so to) Say," AV, "(as I may so) Say;" logos is reasoned speech, rhema, an utterance, epos, "the articulated expression of a thought" (Abbott-Smith)

Forgiveness - "Ye have heard, " saith he, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy; but I Say unto you, love your enemies, " &c. "This, " Says an ingenious writer, "was a lesson so new, and utterly unknown till taught by his doctrines and enforced by his example, that the wisest moralists of the wisest nations and ages represented the desire of revenge as a mark of a noble mind; but how much more magnanimous, how much more beneficial to mankind, is forgiveness! It is more magnanimous, because every generous and exalted disposition of the human mind is requisite to the practice of it; and it is the most beneficial, because it puts an end to an eternal succession of injuries and retaliation

- Mother Mary Magdalena ...
Amen - The use peculiar to the NT is that ascribed to our Lord in the Gospels, where the word ‘verily’ followed by ‘I Say’ introduces statements which He desires to invest with special authority ( Matthew 5:18 , Mark 3:28 , Luke 4:24 etc

Comgall - ]'>[1] After ruling the monastery of Bangor and its dependencies for "10 days, 3 months and 50 years," as the calendars Say, but about 44 years according to computation, St
Minister - The rabbins Say he was the same as the angel of the church or overseer. Lightfoot Says, Baal Aruch expounds the chazan, or minister of the congregation, by sheliach hatzibbor, or angel of the congregation; and from this common platform and constitution of the synagogue, we may observe the Apostle's expression of some elders ruling and labouring in word and doctrine, others in the general affairs of the synagogue
Gemara - Prideaux Says that it was completed about A. The Babylonish gemara is, as the rabbins Say, more modern

Psaltery - It is impossible to Say positively with what instrument the nebel of the Hebrew exactly corresponded, From the fact that nebel in Hebrew also signifies a wine-bottle or skin it has been conjectured that the term when applied to a musical instrument denotes a kind of bagpipe
Your, Yours - , "(those opposed) to you;" in 1 Corinthians 6:5 ; 15:34 , AV, "(I speak to) your (shame)," RV, "(I Say this to move) you (to shame)," is lit
Abraham - ...
Now, of no mortal man but of Abraham alone does Almighty God ever speak and Say, He was My friend. God employs many gracious, beautiful, and endearing names in speaking of the patriarchs, and prophets, and psalmists, and other saints of His in Israel; but it is of Abraham alone that God testifies to Israel and Says, Thou art the seed of Abraham, My friend. Can we put our finger on anything in Abraham's life and Say, Here, and here, and here, that wonderful man proved himself to be the friend of God? We have only a few short chapters to cover the long life of Abraham. To Terah's son, first of all good men on the face of the earth, was God able to Say, Get thee out of thy kindred; walk before Me, and be thou perfect. ...
Edward Irving Says that it is part of the office and service of a true friend to call out, and to prepare a scope for those finer feelings of the heart which are chilled and driven back upon the heart in this cold, distrustful, selfish world. I do not understand this dark dispensation of God-all the seed of Abraham are often compelled to Say. In His will is my tranquillity of mind, and my strength of heart, and my submission, and my obedience-so all Abraham's seed are called on and are enabled to Say. For all that we have read and heard in Abraham's history,-that any mortal man should be able to befriend Almighty God, still remains a very startling thing to Say about Almighty God. O!-you start up and exclaim: O! if my lot had only been cast in Galilee, or in Samaria, or in Judea, or in Jerusalem! O! you cry, how you envy the men and the women to whom the Father will Say, Inasmuch as ye did it to Him, ye did it to Me! But, as you still cry that, this scripture comes up into my mind. Now, what do you all Say to that? Are you His friends on that footing? A friend gives full scope to his friend's love and goodness. But, then, that is not all that our Lord Says about how we are to make friends with Him, and to keep up that friendship. 'Ye are My friends,' he goes on to Say, 'if ye do whatsoever I command you. All tomorrow love your enemies, and your rivals-that is to Say, try to do it. Ye are My friends, Says the Son of God, if ye do that. Be like noble old Terah, go half the way with your elect and expatriated son, till God arises out of His place and comes to meet you, and Says to you-As sure as I live, all the land on which thou standest will I give to thee and to thy seed with thee, because thou hast not withheld thyself or thy son from Me. If there is a famine of bread and water where corn and wine had been promised and expected; or if the laughters and the shouts of baptized children are silent where they would have been as the voices of God's angels to you,-what then? Then thy God will descend into thine heart, and He will ask: Am I not more to thee than sons and daughters? Is My love not better to thee than corn and wine? Am I, and My salvation, and that city of Mine which hath foundations, not more to be desired by thee than all else that I could give thee? Till you will find it in your bereaved and broken heart to Say to Him henceforth and continually, Whom have I in heaven but Thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee
Paul's Visit to Jerusalem to See Peter - And Say to Him continually:-Count me a partner with Thee. ...
"To see Peter," our Authorised Version is made to Say. "To visit Peter," the Revised Version is made to Say. And, still, to help out all that acknowledged lameness, the revised margin is made to Say, "to become acquainted with Peter. But to see Him even once, as He was in the flesh, Paul would have gone from Damascus to Jerusalem on his hands and his knees, "I went up to Jerusalem to history Peter," is what Paul really Says. "I went up to interrogate and to cross-question Peter all about our Lord," that would be rough English indeed, but it would be far better than so feebly to Say, "to see Peter," which positively hides from his readers what was Paul's real errand to Jerusalem, and to Peter. Would you have asked anything? How far would you go tonight to have an interview with Peter? Honestly, have you any curiosity at all about Jesus Christ, either as He is in heaven now, or as He was on earth then? Really and truly, do you ever think about Him, and imagine Him, and what He is Saying and doing? Or are you like John Bunyan, who never thought whether there was a Christ or no? If you would tell me two or three of the questions you would have put to Peter, I would tell you in return just who and what you are; just how you stand tonight to Jesus Christ, and how He stands to you: and what He thinks and Says about you, and intends toward you. But I put it to you who are mothers in Israel, to put yourselves in Mary's place in those days, and to Say if you would have been to be found anywhere, by that time, but in the house of your own believing son. 'I have the most perfect, and at first-hand, assurance of all these things from them that were eye-witnesses and ministers of the Word,' Says Paul's physician and private secretary. '...
"From the Old Testament point of view," Says Bengel in his own striking and suggestive way, "the progress is made from the knowledge of Christ to the knowledge of Jesus. Paul went "back to Jesus," as the Saying sometimes is; but when he went back he took back with him all the knowledge of the Son of God that he has put into his Epistles, ay, and much more than the readers of his Epistles were able to receive
Montanists - Some critics consider that the Montanistic controversy made the Church the Catholic Church; one would better Say that Montanism brought out the innate Catholicity, the unanimity of the Church
Altar - (Hebrews 13:10) I cannot forbear remarking, that seeing the holy jealousy of the Lord, as noted in these things, how very wrong must it be, not to Say profane, to call the communion table the altar, and to talk of companions to the altar, in the books so called, as if such things could be companions to Christ
Fish - ...
John 21:6 (c) Some Say that these fish represent the miracles performed by our Lord JESUS CHRIST while He was on the earth

Johanan - Some interpreters would Say that Jonathan ( Nehemiah 12:11 ) is a copyist's error for Johanan, but this is not likely

Daemons - A name given by the ancients to certain spirits or genii, which, they Say, appeared to men, either to do them service, or to hurt them. Farmer has attempted to shew in his Essay on Daemoniacs, p
Wealth - There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things Say not, It is enough: the grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough
Hattemists - Thus far they agreed: but the Hattemists further affirmed, that Christ made no expiation for the sins of men by his death; but had only suggested to us, by his mediation, that there was nothing in us that could offend the Deity: this, they Say, was Christ's manner of justifying his servants, and presenting them blameless before the tribunal of God. These two sects, Says Mosheim, still subsist, though they no longer bear the names of their founders
Forms - They Say what they want is "spiritual religion," andthis objection seems to be so final with them there is evidentlynothing more to be said
Ablution - For example, the elders of the nearest village where some murder was committed were required, when the murderer was unknown, to wash their hands over the expiatory heifer which was beheaded, and in doing so to Say, "Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it" (Deuteronomy 21:1-9 )
Person - There have been warm debates between the Greek and Latin churches about the words hypostasis and persona; the Latin concluding that the word hypostasis signified substance or essence, thought that to assert that there were three divine hypostases was to Say that there were three gods
Herd - The Arabs Say, "sweet provender is as bread to camels, salted provender as confectionery
Determine - We Say, I had determined this question in my own mind the court has determined the cause
Feud - We Say, it is the policy of our enemies to raise and cherish intestine feuds
Husband - There has been the putting away: Jehovah has said, "She is not my wife, neither am I her husband;" but there is a day coming when she will Say, "I will go and return to my first husband
Alpha - , 1:1086) Say, "Adam transgressed the whole law from Αleph ( א ) to Τau ( ת )" (the last Hebrew letter); so Christ fulfilled it from Αlpha ( Α - α ) to Οmega ( Ω - ω ) (Matthew 3:15)
First-Begotten, First-Born, - Moses was to Say to Pharaoh, "Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my first-born. In bringing 'the first-begotten' into the world, God Says, "Let all the angels of God worship him

Fashion - ...
Shall the clay Say to him that fashioneth it, what makes thou? Isaiah 14
History - We Say, we have a concise history of the prisoner in the testimony offered to the court
Authorities - It does not seem possible to Say precisely what powers are intended, but in the Gospel passage (where the wording is peculiar to Luke) it is probable that the Sanhedrin and the Roman procurator of Judaea would be included, while in the Titus Epistle the reference is to all those set in authority over the people-the Emperor, the governor and his suite, as well as the local magistrates
Wars - David could Say of God, "He teacheth my hands to war
That - ) As adverb: To such a degree; so; as, he was that frightened he could Say nothing
Abba - It has been suggested that in the two words the Jew and the Gentile each Say 'Father' in his own language — the Aramaic being then spoken by the Jews, and Greek the language of the Gentiles in Palestine and many other places
Ascension - With peculiar reference to our Lord Jesus Christ, the Psalmist demands, "Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord?" (Psalms 24:3) And in answer to the enquiry, we may truly Say, that the glorious doctrine of the ascension is never cordially received, nor indeed properly understood, until that we are taught by the Lord the Spirit, to have both a just apprehension of his person who is ascended, and the blessed purposes included in that ascension for his church and people
Bethany - About a bow-shot from hence you pass by the place which they Say was Mary Magdalene's house; and thence descending a steep hill, you come to the fountain of the Apostles, which is so called because, as the tradition goes, these holy persons were wont to refresh themselves there between Jerusalem and Jericho,—as it is very probable they might, because the fountain is close to the roadside, and is inviting to the thirsty traveller. Bethany is now a poor village, but pleasantly situated, Says Dr
Murder - The priests of the Lord, with the elders and magistrates of the city, were to come near the dead body, and, washing their hands over the heifer that had been slain, were to Say, "Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it shed
Philip - PHILIP, the second of the seven deacons, Acts 6:5 , was, some Say, of Caesarea in Palestine
Day of the Lord - "The day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night; for when they shall Say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them
Amen - "How shall he who occupieth the place of the unlearned, Say, Amen! at thy giving of thanks? seeing he understandeth not what thou Sayest. At the conclusion of the public prayers, the people anciently answered with a loud voice, "Amen!" and Jerom Says, that, at Rome, when the people answered, "Amen!" the sound was like a clap of thunder, in similitudinem caelestis tonitrui Amen reboat
Lie - ) To utter falsehood with an intention to deceive; to Say or do that which is intended to deceive another, when he a right to know the truth, or when morality requires a just representation

Teach - For the Holy Spirit shall teach you in that same hour what ye ought to Say

Truth - Veracity purity from falsehood practice of speaking truth habitual disposition to speak truth as when we Say, a man is a man of truth
West - Thus we Say, a star sets in the west, a meteor appears in the west, a cloud rises in the west
ez'ra - The principal works ascribed to him by the Jews are--
The instruction of the great synagogue; ...
The settling the canon of Scripture, and restoring, correcting and editing the whole sacred volume; ...
The introduction of the Chaldee character instead of the old Hebrew or Samaritan; ...
The authorship of the books of Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and, some add, Esther; and, many of the Jews Say, also of the books of Ezekiel, Daniel, and the twelve prophets; ...
The establishment of synagogues
Jeho'Vah - When Moses received his commission to be the deliverer of Israel, the Almighty, who appeared in the burning bush, communicated to him the name which he should give as the credentials of his mission: "And God said unto Moses, "I AM THAT I AM (ehyea asher ehyeh ); and he said, Thus shalt thou Say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you
Hor - " Its height Isaiah 4800 feet above the Mediterranean; that is to Say, about 1700 feet above the town of Petra, 4800 above the level of the Arabah, and more than 6000 above the Dead Sea
Euphra'Tes - The width of the river is greatest at the distance of 700 or 800 miles from its mouth --that is to Say, from it junction with the Khabour to the village of Werai
Lucius (1) i - For, though the Felician and later editions of the Liber Pontifcalis Say that Lucius was beheaded for the faith, the earlier Liberian Catalogue mentions his death only; and it is in the Liberian Depositio Episcoporum, not Martyrum, that his name is found
Place (His Own) - Matthew seems to indicate, the act of suicide took place before the Crucifixion, it is a striking thought to dwell upon, that the souls of the Saviour and His betrayer did meet for a brief space and perhaps held commune ἐν φυλακῇ (1 Peter 3:19); and if so, with what merciful consequences to the latter, who shall Say?...
Vettius Epagathus - It not unfrequently happened [1] that a bystander at a trial would press on the judge the necessity of such an investigation, whereupon the magistrate would Say, I think you must be a Christian also yourself, and on the advocate's confessing that he was, would send him to share the fate of those whom he had attempted to defend. 307) is of opinion that Vettius had "only the merits of martyrdom without the reality," since no mention is made of Vettius in the subsequent narration of the sufferings of Christians tortured in the amphitheatre, and, what Renan thinks decisive, the epistle of the churches Says of Vettius that "he was and is a genuine disciple of Christ, following the Lamb whithersoever he goeth
Tongue - What they Say and the way they Say it are therefore matters of the highest importance
Saying And Doing - SAYING AND DOING. —The contrast between ‘saying’ and ‘doing’ is based on an axiomatic principle of the moral and spiritual life, which, notwithstanding its simplicity and obviousness, is apt to be overlooked, viz. The distinction thus suggested necessarily finds a large place in the teaching of our Lord, who, as the Founder of a religion of inward reality, frequently emphasized the importance of ‘doing’ rather than ‘saying. Not that Jesus by any means underrated the importance of ‘saying’; He made confession of His name one of the most solemn obligations of discipleship (Matthew 10:32-33, cf. In contrast with this ideal of ‘doing,’ Jesus warned men against the subtle dangers of mere ‘saying. It was the great sin of the religious leaders of the time that they were so strong in profession and precept, and so neglectful of practical righteousness; ‘they Say, and do not’ (Matthew 23:3); and many too readily followed their example of easy formalism,—‘This people honoureth me with their lips’ (Matthew 15:8). The ‘acted parable’ of the withering of the barren fig-tree with its deceptive show of premature leaves, was a solemn warning against the danger and sin of ‘saying’ without ‘doing’ (Matthew 21:18-19, Mark 11:12-14). Better that the ‘saying’ should follow than outrun the ‘doing,’ and be inspired by a truthful and humble judgment of even our best efforts and achievements; ‘when ye shall have done all the things that are commanded you, Say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which it was our duty to do’ (Luke 17:10)
Towel - Did Jesus, I would, methinks, have every poor sinner Say, did Jesus not think it unbecoming of him then to wash poor fishermen's feet? And will he reject the humble cries of poor sinners now? Yea, will he not delight to receive them? Is he not become more glorious to our view, from becoming so gracious to our need? Precious Lord, I would Say for myself and reader, give each of us grace to be everlastingly beholding thee into his most lovely portrait girded with thy towel; and the lower thou comest down to suit the wants of our souls, be thou the higher exalted in our hearts, and live and reign there for ever!...
Propitiation - And Scripture is express in explaining both; for speaking of Christ as a propitiation, the apostle saith, that "having made peace by the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things to himself; by him, I Say, (saith the apostle) whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. " (Colossians 1:20) The apostle lays the greatest stress upon the personal glory of Christ in this act, and repeats his expression by him, I Say, as if to shew, and which is indeed the chief glory of it, how much depended upon the infinite dignity of Christ's person, and the infinite merit of his work
Hate - " The hatred of father, and mother, and the like, they Say, is in contradiction to the divine command, and, therefore, they have conceived, that the expression means no more than by a comparative statement, to Say, that none can be the disciple of Jesus who loves his earthly friends equal to this heavenly one
Hear - 37:17, a man told Joseph that he “heard” Joseph’s brothers Say, “Let us go to Dothan”; in other words, he unintentionally “overheard” them Say it. ...
Shôma‛ (שֹׁמַע, Strong's #8089), means “things heard by accident; hearsay
But - They do not Say, I have but one. On the other hand, they Say, I have not but one, that is, I have not except one except one, and I have none
Naaman - I refer the reader to the article Leper, for farther remarks on the nature of the disease itself, and shall only add on that subject, that if such was the power of the servant of the prophet in his Master's name, instantly to cure this Syrian, what may we suppose, is the sovereign power and grace of the Lord God of the prophets, to heal all the leprosies of the souls of his people! Would to God (I would Say in the words of the poor captive to her mistress) every poor sinner convinced by the Holy Ghost of his leprous state of sin, were with the Lord Jesus Christ, the Almighty prophet of his church and people, for He would recover him of his leprosy! (See 2 Kings 5:1-27 throughout. How doth the faith of this man, and so immediately wrought as it was in the mind of this poor idolater, reproach the supposed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, who, after all the miracles, and evidences, and testimonies, with which the truth, as it is in Jesus, is brought home and confirmed to the heart, can hardly keep alive, from day to day, a suitable dependence upon Him! May we not take up the words of the Lord Jesus upon this occasion, and Say, as he did: "Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)...
Isaiah, the Book of - Thus they Say that some five or seven, or even more, unknown prophets had a hand in the production of this book. The considerations which have led to such a result are various: ...
They cannot, as some Say, conceive it possible that Isaiah, living in B
Ask - ...
Both verbs are found in 1 John 5:16 : in the sentence "he shall ask, and God will give him life for them that sin not unto death," the verb is aiteo, but with regard to the sin unto death, in the sentence "not concerning this do I Say that he shall make request," the verb is erotao. ...
A — 6: λέγω (Strong's #3004 — Verb — lego — leg'-o ) "to Say," occasionally signifies "to ask," as of an inquiry, the reason being that lego is used for every variety of speaking, e. " See BID , BOAST , CALL , DESCRIBE , GIVE , NAME , PUT , Note (2), Say , SPEAK , TELL , UTTER
the Queen of Sheba - If this sacred writer means nothing more by it but a sonorous and a stately turn of expression when he mentions the Name of the Lord as the motive of the Queen of Sheba's mission to Jerusalem; if he means as little by it as the run of the commentators Say that he means, then, all I can Say is that he has set a trap for my feet in the text. And as the seamen of Israel filled their water-pots, it was an ordinance that they should sing, Saying, Spring up, O well; in the Name of the Lord, spring up! When, who should pass by but the Queen of Sheba herself with her maidens with her? Sing still another of the songs of Zion, she said to Solomon's sailors. Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!' And, then, at the Name of the Lord, and without being told to do it, all the seamen standing on the shore lifted up their hands to heaven and proclaimed the Name of the Lord, and worshipped, Saying, 'The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious. I do not see what business the best of commentators has to Say that, unless it be to teach us always to read our Bible with our own eyes and with our own hearts for ourselves. The sacred writer knew far more about the Queen of Sheba than the minister of Chester did; and what he Says about her questions is this, that they were hard to Solomon to answer; especially when she went deep down into her heart for her questions. Affairs of state, as we would Say: her anxieties about her treaties of war and peace; her seat of judgment and justice over her own people; royal-family matters also, no doubt; and matters, maybe, still nearer her heart. Of no New Testament heart does the New Testament ever Say that its owner ever told to any man all that was in her heart; unless it was to our New Testament Solomon. ...
Matthew Henry is more like himself when he goes on to Say that we may be sure that Solomon gave the inquiring Queen a rationale of the temple and all its offices and all its services. Nothing satisfies and silences the heart like the rationale, that is to Say, the revelation of the truth and the grace of God to the heart that is hungry both for His truth as it is in Jesus, and for His grace as it is in Jesus also, and in Jesus alone. What Say you? Had I been in her place, I do not feel guilty that I would have been either captious or frivolous in the house of God or in Solomon's own house
Corban - 4, Josephus Says of the Nazirites: ‘They dedicate themselves to God as a corban, which in the language of the Greeks denotes “a gift. 4, Josephus Says that Herod ‘caused a disturbance by spending the sacred treasure, which is called corban, upon aqueducts. ’ So in Matthew 27:6 the high priests Say to one another: ‘It is not lawful to cast them (Judas’ silver pieces) into the treasury (εἰς τὸν κορβανᾶν, B* κορβᾶν), for it is the price of blood. But ye Say, If a man has said to his father or mother, That wherewith thou mightest have been benefited from me is corban, that is, a gift, [2]. 2, Says: ‘When any one Says “konâm, or konâh, or konâs (be this object, or this food),” these are by-names for korbân. , a man seeing his house on fire, Says, ‘My tallith shall be corban if it is not burnt” (Ned. In making a vow of abstinence a man Says: ‘Konâs be the food (vi. ’ When a man resolves not to plough a field, he Says, ‘Konâs be the field, if I plough it’ (iv. One may Say to him: If thou hadst known that thou wast transgressing such commandments as these, “Thou shalt not take vengeance nor bear a grudge”; “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart”; “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” Rain - And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will Say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people, and they shall Say, Thou art my God. And as in nature, so in grace, the Lord sends showers of grace upon his inheritance when they are weary, from the blessed cause he here assigns: I will Say to them, Thou art my people; and they shall Say, Thou art my God?...
We hear often mention made in the Scriptures concerning the first rain, and the latter rain, in their season, (Deuteronomy 11:14) —and, no doubt, there was somewhat particularly suited and seasonable in both. " Surely every redeemed soul that knoweth what these things mean must be constrained to Say with David: "He is as the light of the morning when the sun ariseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth, by clear shining after other beauties in the Scriptures concerning divine things, which are described under the similitude of rain;" but I must not enlarge, and therefore can only make reference to the Scriptures themselves
Authority of Christ - It is, of course, always true to Say that truth and the mind are made for each other, and that the mind recognizes the authority of truth because in truth it meets its counterpart, that which enables it to realize its proper being. It is always correct, also, to apply this in the region of morals and religion, and to Say that the words of Jesus and the prophets are authoritative because our moral personality instinctively responds to them. We may Say in Coleridge’s phrase that we believe the teaching of Jesus, or acknowledge its (or His) authority, because it ‘finds’ us more deeply than anything else; but any Christian will admit that ‘find’ is an inadequate expression. We cannot explain this kind of moral or practical authority further than by Saying that it is one with the authority which the right and the good exercise over all moral beings. This is plain in regard to such a command of Jesus as the one given to the rich ruler: no one will Say that this is to be obeyed to the letter by all who would enter into the Kingdom of God. ‘It was said to them of old time … but I Say unto you. When Jesus Says, ‘Whoso shall smite thee on the right cheek, turn to him also the other; to him that would go to law with thee and take thy coat, leave also thy cloak’: it is not to keep us from thinking about moral problems by giving us a rule to be blindly obeyed, it is rather to stimulate thought and deliver us from rules. But there is nothing in this which binds us to take in the letter what Jesus Says about oaths, or non-resistance, or revenge; and still less is there anything to support the idea that His words on these subjects are part of a fanatical renunciation of the world in the region of honour as well as of property,—a literal surrender, in view of the imminence of the Kingdom, of all that makes life on earth worth having. The standard of judgment is variously represented: it is ‘the will of my Father which is in heaven’ (Matthew 7:21) or ‘these Sayings of mine’ (Matthew 7:24) or it is what we might call in a word ‘humanity’ (Matthew 25:35; Matthew 25:42): and in its way each of these is a synonym for the moral authority of Jesus. It is not denying His Divinity to Say this; it is rather denying His humanity if we Say the opposite. It is a misleading way of speaking about them, and needlessly hurts some Christian feelings, to Say that the authority of Jesus was limited, and did not extend to such matters. If we try to interpret ‘all things’ by reference to the context, then whether we look before or after we must Say that the ‘all things’ in view are those involved in the revelation of God: in the work of revelation, and especially in the revelation of Himself as Father, God has no organ but Christ, and in Christ He has an adequate organ. Perhaps it is enough to Say in refutation of this, that the words here in question, as found both in Mt. They seem to Say quite unmistakably that certain things will happen, and happen within a comparatively short time, which (if we are to read literally) have not happened yet. ‘Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel till the Son of man be come’ (Matthew 10:23); ‘Verily I Say unto you, there be some of them that stand here which shall in no wise taste of death till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom’ (Matthew 16:28; cf. He must have said something—when we consider the intensity of the Apostolic hope, surely we may Say He must have said much—to create and sustain an expectation so keen. It would be hard to Say that the Apostles completely misunderstood Him when He did so, but it is hard for anyone in using such language to Say what is literal in it and what has to be spiritualized

B — 1: ὑψηλός (Strong's #5308 — Adjective — hupselos — hoop-say-los' ) "high, lofty," is used metaphorically in Luke 16:15 , as a noun with the article, RV, "that which is exalted," AV, "that which is highly esteemed

Mary Magdalene - And what is more remarkable, the Holy Ghost is particular to tell the church this, in the same moment he speaks of the mercy; for so the sweet and gracious words run" Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary, Magdalene, out of whom he cast seven devils;"Did the kind compassionate, Lord mean to Say by this condescending act of grace, that there he will be most gracious where Satan hath been most, cruel? Did he thereby mean to intimate to all his disciples, that the poor lamb of his fold shall have, the softest lying down in his bosom, whom the prowling wolf hath most torn and worried with his claws? Oh! that every deeply-exercised follower of the Lord Jesus would frequently think of this; and, as often as this Magdalene riseth to their recollection, would behold the Lord Jesus in this unequalled act of mercy, that "where sin abounded, grace doth much more abound; that as sin hath reigned unto death, so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord?" (Romans 5:21)...

Lamech - " (Genesis 5:29) The Holy Ghost hath not given us authority to Say it was prophetical, but when we consider the eminency of Noah, a preacher of Jesus, by faith, (see Hebrews 11:7) we may well suppose, that his father's hopes concerning him sprang from somewhat more than nature
Table - Lord grant that when thy people sit at thy table, they may have to Say, "the cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? the bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?" (1 Corinthians 10:16)...
Sepharvaim - We read (Genesis 10:30) of an antient mount in the east called Sephar—and it is probable that the Sepharvaims were of this land; but from whence the name is, it is difficult to Say
Bosom - The word represents the “outer front of one’s body” where beloved ones, infants, and animals are pressed closely: “Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest Say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child …” ( Salt - This idea is found in Ezra 4:14 , where the opposers of the Jews Say, "We eat the salt of the palace," as the passage is more literally translated: see margin

Vail, Veil - In Christianity the believer has boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way which He has consecrated for us through the veil, that is to Say, His flesh
Absolution - Any idea of authority given to fallible, uninspired men to absolve sinners, different from this, is unscriptural; nor can I see much utility in the terms ministerial or declarative absolution, as adopted by some divines, since absolution is wholly the prerogative of God; and the terms above-mentioned, may, to Say the least, have no good influence on the minds of the ignorant and superstitious
Abyssinian Church - They hold that the soul of man is not created; because, Say they, God finished all his works on the sixth day
Adoration, Forty Hours' - The devotions were approved by Pope Paul III in 1539, though some Say Clement VII in 1534

Eternal - " (Isaiah 57:15) "For I lift up my hand to heaven, and Say, I live for ever
Jezebel - They Say that at Gordar, it is usual to hew in pieces the unhappy prisoners, which fall into their hands; and that when this is done, their scattered fragments are suffered to lie in the streets, being denied burial
Harlot - A harlot is the same name as a prostitute, a woman of fame, or as we Say, a woman of the town
Bether - " (2 Thessalonians 1:10) Say, reader, doth not your heart go forth, as the church of old did, (sure I am it must, if so be Christ is precious) crying out with the same rapture, "Make haste my beloved; and until that everlasting day, break upon my redeemed soul, be thou like to a roe, or a young hart, upon the mountains of Berber
Korah - He with Dathan and Abiram headed the rebellion against Moses and Aaron, Saying that they took too much upon themselves, whereas all the people were holy. ...
Numbers 26:10 seems to Say that Korah was swallowed up by the earth; but Numbers 16:32 speaks only of the "men that appertained unto Korah;" and in Deuteronomy 11:6 and Psalm 106:17,18 only Dathan and Abiram are named as being swallowed up

Proseuchae - Prideaux; and they think the difference consists partly in the form of the edifice; a synagogue, they Say, being roofed like our houses or churches; and a proseucha being only encompassed with a wall, or some other mound or enclosure, and open at the top, like our courts. In synagogues, he Says, the prayers were offered up in public forms in common for the whole congregation; but in the proseuchae they prayed, as in the temple, every one apart for himself

Know - It is not unusual for us to Say we know things from information, when we rely on the veracity of the informer
Sign of the Cross - The ordinary method is to put the right hand to the forehead, and to the breast, and to the left and the right shoulder, Saying: "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. We Say "In the name" - expressing the unity of God; we mention the three Persons of the Trinity; the cross itself, made with the hand, manifests our belief in the Incarnation, death, and resurrection of Our Saviour, and shows that we regard Him not only as God but as man - for otherwise He could not die

Obadiah - I do not presume to Say as much, but I humbly would ask, whether the close of his man's vision hath not respect to the latter day glory, in a blessed event yet to be fulfilled
High, Highly - A — 1: ὑψηλός (Strong's #5308 — Adjective — hupselos — hoop-say-los' ) "high, lofty," is used (a) naturally, of mountains, Matthew 4:8 ; 17:1 ; Mark 9:2 ; Revelation 21:10 ; of a wall, Revelation 21:12 ; (b) figuratively, of the arm of God, Acts 13:17 ; of heaven, "on high," plural, lit
Murder (2) - He who is angry with his brother, or who Says to him ‘Raca,’ or ‘Thou fool,’ is accounted guilty of murder (Matthew 5:22). With this Saying of Jesus may be compared one of Mohammed, ‘Whosoever shall Say to his brother, Thou unbeliever, one of the two shall surfer as an unbeliever
Sacrament - " Thus the Church Catechismtreating of the two Sacraments "generally necessary to salvation,that is to Say, Baptism and the Supper of the Lord," defines asacrament as being an outward and visible sign ordained by Christ,of an inward and spiritual grace given by Him as its accompaniment. " So also, Bishop Jeremy Taylorsays, "it is none of the doctrine of the Church of England, thatthere are two Sacraments only, but that 'two only are generallynecessary to salvation
Bethsaida - But if they knew nothing of this, what shall we Say of their age? In other respects they evince the most accurate knowledge of the circumstances of the time. "But it is strange," some one will Say, "that John reckons this Bethsaida, or Julias, where he was born, in Galilee, John 12:21
Second Coming, the - Some Say He was referring to the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, others that He was referring to His resurrection, others to the fact that He was going to be spiritually present with us (Matthew 28:20 ), others to an individual's conversion experience (see Revelation 3:20 ). Peter warned against unbelief that could blunt the expectant spirit and cause people to Say, “Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (2 Peter 3:3-4 ). As one man Says it, “I am not on the time and place, but on the welcoming committee
Grafting - 238) Says that Columelia’s statement that olive trees are rejuvenated and strengthened in this way (see Comm. Sanday-Headlam Say ( ICC
No one could mistake the oleaster for the olive; but the case is not clear enough to justify Ramsay in calling the oleaster the wild olive ( Expositor, ut supra , 152). Thomson, whose accuracy Ramsay commends, citing him in favour of his own view ( ib. Ramsay accepts the statement without question ( Expositor, ut supra , 19), and the value of his subsequent discussion rests upon the assumption of its truth. Paul proves a spiritual process credible ‘because it resembles a process impossible in and contrary to external nature’ (Ramsay, ib. He exhorts the Gentiles to humility, because God in His goodness has done for them in the spiritual sphere a thing which they had no reason to expect, since it, according to Sanday-Headlam, never, according to Ramsay, very seldom, is done in the natural
Hagar - ...
Luther wisely Says that ‘if Paul had not proved the righteousness of faith against the righteousness of works by strong and pithy arguments, he should have little prevalled by this allegory. ’) But the Greek is extremely uncertain, and Bentley’s conjecture, that we have here a gloss transferred to the text, has (as Lightfoot Says
To affirm that the Jews, who were went to Say that ‘all Israel are the children of kings,’ were the sons of Hagar the bondwoman, was to use language which could not but be regarded as insulting and offensive. If he was convinced that men might be sons of Abraham and yet spiritual slaves, he was bound to Say so (cf
Predestination - If his knowledge, Say they, be infinite and unchangeable, he must have known every thing from eternity. To Say that this doctrine makes him the author of sin, is not justifiable
Anchor - It is probably right, therefore, to conclude that he means to Say that the anchor is sure, steadfast, and entering into that which is within the veil, viz. But, in view of what the writer Says at a later stage about the Most Holy Place with its ark of the covenant and cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy-seat (Hebrews 9:4 f. It is the appearance of our great High Priest ‘before the face of God for us,’ he means to Say, that is the ultimate foundation of the Christian hope
Walk - When we speak of noctambulation, we Say, to walk in sleep. Affairs that walk, as they Say spirits do at midnight
Paradise - Verily, (said Jesus) "I Say unto thee, this day shalt thou be with me in paradise. All they shall speak, and Say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?" Now here we see not only a state of living consciousness described, but the miserable already departed speaking to the miserable now come among them, and giving them the horrible gratulation of partnership in endless woe
Ordination - Some, however, on this side of the question, do not go so far as to Say, that the essence of ordination lies in the choice of the people, but in the solemn and public separation to office by prayer: still, however, they think that ordination by either bishops, presbyters, or any superior character, cannot be necessary to make a minister or ordain a pastor in any particular church; for Jesus Christ, Say they, would never leave the subsistence of his churches, or the efficacy of his word and sacraments, to depend on the uninterrupted succession of any office or officer: for then it would be impossible for any church to know whether they ever have had any authentic minister; for we could never be assured that such ordinations had been rightly transmitted through 1700 years. To Say, therefore, that the right of ordaining lies in men who are already in office, would drive us to hold the above-mentioned untenable position of uninterrupted succession. To ordain a man originally, Says Dr. Allowing that they have all those talents, gifts, and grace, that constitute a minister in the sight of God, who will dare Say they should not be designated by their brethren for the administration of those ordinances Christ has appointed in the church?...
Without allowing this, how many thousands would be destitute of these ordinances? Besides, these are the very men whom God in general honours as the first instruments in raising churches, over which stated pastors are afterwards fixed. The separation of Saul and Barnabas, Say they, was an ordination to missionary work, including the administration of sacraments to the converted Heathen, as well as public instruction, Acts 13:1 ; Acts 13:3 . On reviewing the whole of this controversy, I would Say with Dr. 78, 83; Brekell's Essay on Ordination; Watts' Rational foundation of a Christian Church, sec
the Unmerciful Servant - Now, mutatis mutandis, that is to Say, after making all the necessary changes, that was our Lord's exact case till He began to be about thirty years of age. Only, we have Peter coming with this remonstrance to his Master-How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I Say not unto thee until seven times: but, until seventy times seven. And in this so apposite story, our Lord was like a scribe, as He Says Himself, which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. Cæsar would take account of his servants, Says our Lord. And how did it all end? Or, is it all ended yet?...
But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow-servants which owed him an hundred pence; and he laid his hands on him and took him by the throat, Saying, Pay me that thou owest. Say, how often shall my brother sin against me in such ways as these, and I forgive him? No, I cannot do it. As Peter afterwards said, Lord to whom shall I flee but unto Thee? Who shall shelter me and my unforgiving heart but Thee! Who can justify a man like me, both now and at the last account, but Thee and Thy Heavenly Father in Thee! Likewise also Say all His disciples. ...
I feel sure you all Say the Lord's Prayer every night before you sleep. Amen! stuck in my throat, Says Macbeth. He had trespassed against Halyburton that day in a way that Halyburton has not the courage to set down in black and white in his diary that night, and therefore he could neither Say Amen, nor get to sleep. It was an excellent Saying of one of the seven wise men of Greece, who, when he was asked what would rid the world of injuries, answered:-"When the bystanders shall resent an injury as keenly as he does who suffers the injury
the Angel of the Church in Pergamos - IN his beautifully-written but somewhat superficial commentary, Archbishop Trench Says that there is a strong attraction in these seven Epistles for those scholars who occupy themselves with pure exegesis. And that strong attraction arises, so the Archbishop Says, from the fact that there are so many unsolved problems of interpretation in these seven Epistles. My irresistible attraction to these seven Epistles lies in this that they are so many looking-glasses, as James the Lord's brother would Say, in which all ministers of churches everywhere to the end of time may see themselves, and may judge themselves, as their Master sees them and judges them. For before that battle the King of Syria commanded his thirty-and-two captains that had rule over his chariots, Saying, "Fight neither with small nor great save only with the King of Israel. May my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth before I Say a single word to turn any young man away from the ministry, who is called of God to that awful work. At the same time, let all intending ministers count well the cost lest, haply, after they have laid the foundation and are not able to finish, both men and devils shall point at them and Say, this minister began to build for himself and for his congregation, for eternity, but come and see the ruin he has left! Count well, I Say again, whether or no you are able to finish. And they, repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit, shall Say within themselves-This was he whom we had sometimes in derision, and made a proverb of reproach. That is to Say, for the very innermost heart and soul of any person or any thing. ...
I named them as they passed, and understoodTheir nature; with such knowledge God enduedMy sudden apprehension, Says Adam to the angel
the Pharisee - And that Saying of Dr. With all that, Says the Apostle, the finished Pharisee was wholly without love in his heart. To come to particulars and instances of that, Says the Apostle. This sounds a hard Saying that nothing was right he ever said or did, but it is the simple truth. "The characteristic mark of the religion of Christ," he Says, "is a continual confession of sin, and a continual prayer for mercy. Philip Neri who, when some one praised him, cried out, Begone! I am a devil, and not a saint! And who, when going to communicate, would protest before his Lord that he was good for nothing but to do evil Such utter self-prostration, I Say, is the very badge and token of the servant of Christ; and this indeed is conveyed in His own words when He Says, I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 'Stand by,' he Says to every other worshipper in the temple. ...
To begin with, if we are ever to take any true part in healing the grievous wounds in the Body of Christ, we must first of all have clean hands ourselves; that is to Say, we must have clean hearts; that is to Say, we must have broken, humble, contrite hearts. What kind of a healer would he be who came to you to bind up your wounds with his hands all dropping with all manner of taint or infection? You would Say to him, Physician, heal thyself. Paul was a tremendous Churchman and a tremendous sectarian controversialist as long as he was a Pharisee: that is to Say, as long as his heart was unbroken. What a contrast to his former self! What humility, what condescension, what geniality, what courtesy, what catholicity, what universal loving-kindness; in short, and in modern language, what a Christian gentleman! Coleridge Says that while Luther was not perhaps such a perfect gentleman as Paul, he was almost as great a genius. And Luther gives us a taste both of his genius and of his gentlemanliness also in what he Says about Paul after Paul had ceased to be a Pharisee. I will repeat to you what I took it upon me to Say on this subject last May in the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. "If," he said, "I met a man from New England, I would Say to him, Read the Marrow Men; and if I met a Marrow Man, I would Say, Read the New Englanders. "Another fatal hindrance to a heavenly walk and conversation," he Says, "is our too frequent disputes. Listen to what Homer Says, who though dead yet speaketh through the mouth of Æneas to Achilles:-...
Long in the field of words we may contend,Reproach is infinite, and knows no end,Arm'd, or with truth or falsehood, right a wrong:So voluble a weapon is the tongue,Wounded we wound; and neither side can fail,For every man has equal strength to rail
the Man Which Sowed Good Seed in His Field But His Enemy Came And Sowed Tares Among the Wheat - And at the end of the world, when he is told about us, as we have been told about him, that husbandman will Say, It was well worth a thousand fields of wheat to be the means of teaching a little patience and a little long-suffering even to one over-anxious and impatient heart. ...
Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house; and His disciples came unto Him, Saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. The one party would Say with Hooker that to detract from the dignity of these things is to do injury even to God Himself, who being that Light which no man can approach to, has sent us these lesser lights as sparkles, resembling, so far, the bright fountain from which they spring. But he went on to Say, "That, my Lord, is the real scope, tendency, and design of this prosecution, and that, as I said before, is its explanation, but not its justification. "...
And a greater than Fitzjames Stephen, the Golden-mouth of the English Church himself, Says in his Discourse of the Liberty of Prophesying-"Let all errors be as much and as zealously suppressed as may be: but let it be done by such means as are proper instruments for their suppression; by preaching and disputation, by charity and sweetness, by holiness of life, by assiduity of exhortation, by the Word of God and prayer. And if men will Say that in Saying this I persuade to indifferency, there is no help for me; I must bear it as I can. But all that will only the more provoke some of you to retort on me and to demand,-Do you really mean to Say, that so and so are to be tolerated, and tolerated where they are? Now, I will not answer that which you put so passionately; for I am not debating with you, but am teaching to the teachable among you, a little of what I have been taught myself. You would need to be an angel to Say in your paper about him and about his book, what you would like him to Say in his paper about you and about your book. Thomas Boston used to Say, that of all men who needed the imputation of Christ's all-round righteousness, preachers and pastors were those men
Paul as an Evangelical Mystic - Speaking mystically, Says the most mystical of the Puritans, there are only two Men who stand before God; the first and the second Adam; and these two public Men have all us private men hanging at their great girdles. Goodwin, that so mystical and so evangelical Puritan, Says that all the "apostolical and primitive language was at once mystical and experimental. Verily, verily, I Say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, ye have no life in you. For Paul is not content to Say that he has in his own heart the identical and very same life that is in Christ's heart: Paul is bold enough to go on to Say that be actually has Christ Himself dwelling in his very heart. That is to Say, in simple and plain language, He dwells in our hearts by faith and love on our part, and by mystical incorporation on His part. As Walter Marshall, one of the greatest doctors in this mystery, has it: "Yea," Says Marshall in his Gospel Mystery, "though it be revealed clearly in the Holy Scriptures, yet the natural man has not eyes to see it there. Your hands do not hang idle and Say,-How shall we ever do any work? Your feet do not stand still and Say,-How shall we ever walk or run? Nor your eyes, nor your ears. And yet, or I should rather Say, and therefore, what truly Pauline vigour and efficacy in everything! And take Teresa and her mystical deacon always at her side, John of the Cross. Somerville, our west-end neighbour Says, from whose fine book on Paul I have borrowed the title of this lecture:-"The intensity that characterised the religious life and experience of the late General Gordon, was all due to his evangelical mysticism. " But why argue out such remote and historical instances when we have it all within ourselves? Let any man among ourselves carry about Christ in his own heart; let any man abide in Christ as the branch abides in the vine: let any man cleave as close to Christ as a member of our body cleaves close to its head: let any man Say unceasingly every day, and in every cross and temptation of every day, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me;" and you will be absolutely sure to find that man the most willing, the most active, the most practical, and the most efficient man in every kind of Christian work
Michal, Saul's Daughter - And, sad to Say, it was the very greatness of the day to David that made it such a day of death to Michal, Saul's daughter. What a pity that David did not better prevail with Michal to accompany him to the fields of the wood that day!...
The wife see that she reverence her husband, Says the apostle. That may be all true, but the apostle does not Say that. He does not Say that any of the wives to whom he wrote were too late now to reverence their husbands. But she must all the more learn to Say her own grace to herself before she sits down to her temptation, till she is able to return thanks as she rises to go upstairs. Its deceived owner must be sent home Saying, What a fool of a wife that brute, that bore, that goose has! I declare the blind thing is still in love with him! The wife see that she is hypocrite enough to throw dust into the eyes of her oldest, closest, and most familiar friend. For when we praise God at last, and Say, To Him who loved us! we will not forget you. To your thorn, as to the apostle's, Christ will come and will Say, My grace is sufficient for it. And, as he Says, he would have danced all the same, and still more, had earth and hell both been all let loose to scoff and scout at him. Yes, he said, it will be as you Say. What a gulf there was between David and Michal; between Jesus and His brethren, not to Say His mother; and between my desolate friend and his wife! My brethren, the Holy Ghost knew what He was doing, and for whom He was doing it, when He moved the sacred writer to put that day in David's life into our Bible
Isaacus, Egyptian Solitary - "Abbat Isaac was wont to Say to the brethren, Our fathers and abbat Pambo wore old bepatched raiment and palm husks ( σεβένια ); nowadays ye wear costly clothing. And abbat Theodore of Phermè, with whom also I lived, would set out the table by himself and Say, 'Brother, if thou wilt, come and eat. Isaac Thebaeus used to Say to the brethren, "Bring no children hither
Paul - His movements from that time are not definitely recorded; apparently he visited Ephesus and Macedonia, 1 Timothy 1:3 ; wrote the FIRST EPISTLE TO TIMOTHY; visited Crete, Titus 1:5 ; and Nicopolis, Titus 3:12 ; wrote the EPISTLE TO TITUS (the early writers Say that he went to Spain, which we know he desired to do, Romans 15:24,28 ); visited Troas and Miletus, 2 Timothy 4:13,20 ; wrote the EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS; and when a prisoner at Rome the second time, wrote the SECOND EPISTLE TO TIMOTHY, when expecting his death. Early writers Say that he was beheaded with the sword, which is probable, as he was a Roman citizen. After having been caught up into the third heavens, he prayed for the removal of the thorn in the flesh which had been given him lest he should be puffed up, and was told that Christ's grace was sufficient for him, he could Say, "most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. He also could Say, "To me to live is Christ;" and "This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the calling on high of God in Christ Jesus
John - Now when we Say that our meaning is that John had by nature an extraordinarily rich and deep and lofty and beautiful mind. We pray sometimes, or we pretend to pray; but do we ever set ourselves to prepare our hearts for the mercy-seat by strenuous meditation on who and what we are; on who and what He is to whom we pretend to pray; and on what it is we are to Say, and do, and ask, and receive? We may never have heard of Philo, but we all belong to his barren school. Our conventional morning chapter about what Jesus Christ did and said, and is at this moment doing and Saying, will then be far more real to us than all our morning papers and all our business letters. You may be the most unlearned man in this learned city tonight, and yet such is John's Gospel, and such is the power and the blessedness of meditation on it, that John will look down on you after your house is asleep tonight, and will Say over you, as you now sit, and now stand, and now kneel with his Gospel in your hands-"That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. I do not Say that the Book of Revelation is the noblest product of John's noble imagination
Paul as the Chief of Sinners - EVERYBODY knows what the most eminent saints of Holy Scripture think and Say of their sinfulness. "When I look at my sinfulness," Says Rutherford, "my salvation is to me my Saviour's greatest miracle. " "When a man like me," Says Luther, "comes to know the plague of his own heart, he is not miserable only-he is absolute misery itself; he is not sinful only-he is absolute sin itself. "It has often appeared to me," Says Jonathan Edwards, "that if God were to mark my heart-iniquity my bed would be in hell. " "I sat down on the side of a stank," Says Lord Brodie, "and was disgusted at the toads and esks and many other unclean creatures I saw sweltering there. " "This is a faithful Saying," Says Paul, "and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. You would like to acquiesce in all that these men Say about all such matters as sin and sinfulness; but you do not see how they can honestly and truly Say such things as the above about themselves. ...
"The highest flames are the most tremulous," Says Jeremy Taylor. That is to Say, the holiest men are the most full of holy fear, holy penitence, holy humility, and holy love. "The saints of God are far too sharp-sighted for their own self-satisfaction," Says William Guthrie in his golden little book. It is then that I search the Book of Job, Say, not any more for its incomparable dialectic and its noble literature. Or if not distasteful, then without taste and insipid, as Job himself Says about the white of an egg. We shallow-hearted fools would think and would Say that it was some great crime or open scandal that those saintly men and women had fallen into. One of themselves used to Say that it was not "so humiliating and heart-breaking to be sometimes like a beast, as to be always like a devil. And when the enraged crowd were about to fall upon the soothsayer and tear him to pieces for Saying such things about their greatest saint, Socrates himself came forward and restrained their anger and confessed openly and said, "Ye men of Athens, let this truth-speaking man alone, and do him no harm. For myself, when I hear Paul Saying this that is in the text, and Luther, and Rutherford, and Bunyan, and Andrewes, and Edwards, and Brodie, it is with me as it was with John Bunyan's pilgrim in the valley of the shadow of death. "When Christian had travelled in this disconsolate condition some considerable time, he thought he heard the voice of a man, as going before him, Saying, Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear none ill, for Thou art with me
Conversion: a Radical Change - You mend his habits; you make him go to church, or to the meeting-house; you clothe him; you break his wine bottle; you rinse his mouth out, so that he does not talk so filthily; and altogether you Say, 'He's now a respectable man
Raca - Read then: ‘Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not murder, and whosoever murders is liable to the judgment, and whosoever Says “Raca” to his brother is liable to the Sanhedrin: but I Say unto you, whosover is angry with his brother is liable to the (Divine) judgment, and whosoever Says “thou fool” is liable to the Gehenna of fire
Numbers, Book of - We see in this history, on the one hand, the unceasing care of the Almighty over his chosen people during their wanderings; and, on the other hand, the murmurings and rebellions by which they offended their heavenly Protector, drew down repeated marks of his displeasure, and provoked him to Say that they should "not enter into his rest" because of their unbelief (Hebrews 3:19 )
Development of Doctrine - What Newman meant to Say in his famous "Essay on Development" need not be urged beyond the limits assigned here
Doctrine, Development of - What Newman meant to Say in his famous "Essay on Development" need not be urged beyond the limits assigned here
Baruch - Thou didst Say, Woe is me now, for the Lord hath added grief to my sorrow, I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest
Charity: Spies Out the Good Points in All - Jameson Says, 'The following beautiful epilogue had a powerful effect on my mind;'–'Jesus,' Says the story, 'arrived one evening at the gates of a certain city, and he sent his disciples forward to prepare supper while he himself, intent on doing good, walked through the streets into the market-place. It gave me pain in my conscience, for it seemed thenceforward so easy and so vulgar to Say satirical things, and so much nobler to be benign and merciful; and I took the lesson so home that I was in great danger of falling into the opposite extreme: of seeking the beautiful even in the midst of the corrupt and the repulsive
Cabbalists - They study principally the combination of particular words, letters, and numbers; and by this, they Say, they see clearly into the sense of Scripture
Immanuel - He has a vision of the Virgin "conceiving and bringing forth a son"; he sees Him growing up in the midst of the poverty brought on by Achaz's wicked course, but he does not Say that He will be born in the near future
Thorn in the Flesh - Paul could truly Say that he was an earthen vessel (2 Corinthians 4:7 ), one who shared the sufferings of Christ (2 Corinthians 1:5 ), so that the life of Jesus might be manifested through his very mortality (2 Corinthians 4:11 ); “for when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10 NIV)
Corner, Corner-Stone - Several of these were taken up and, so to Say, ‘regularized’ in the later legislation (cf
Dissolve - We usually Say, to solve doubts and difficulties
Mind - ...
So we speak of a sound mind, a disordered mind, a weak mind, a strong mind, with reference to the active powers of the understanding and in a passive sense, it denotes capacity, as when we Say, the mind cannot comprehend a subject
Perish - ...
John 3:16 (a) We should note that the passage does not Say that the soul will not perish. It Says that the person will not perish
Appeal - We Say the cause was appealed before or after trial
Ball - We Say the horse balls, or the snow balls
Bottom - We Say, venture not too much in one bottom that is, do not hazard too much at a single risk
Remembrancer - Blessed and almighty Spirit, I would Say, fill my heart, my house, the church, and every member of Jesus with thyself, and glorify the Lord Christ in all sweet remembrances! Amen
Salvation - What he is in himself, in the glories of his person, his greatness, fitness, suitability, and all-sufficiency; what he is in his work, and what he hath done for his redeemed, the salvation he hath wrought beyond all conception of value in its completeness, and beyond all reach of extent in its efficacy, being like himself, everlasting and eternal; and what he is in his relations to his people, being their everlasting Father, Brother, Husband, Friend all these things, included as they all are in salvation, give the happy partakers of it "a joy unspeakable and full of glory;" so that every individual finds cause to join in the hymn of the church, and Say: "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation: he is a rock, his work is perfect, just and right is he
Life - " What a world of blessedness there is in this one consideration of the Lord Jesus as the life of his people! Precious Lord, I would Say, thou art indeed both the life and the light of men! Thou art in thyself the whole of their spiritual and eternal life

Alien - Unexpectedly, the prophets have little to Say about aliens
Coat - ...
So we Say, men of his cloth
Country - Hence the citizen Says, let us go into the country. We Say, the gentleman has a seat in the country, at any distance from town indefinitely
Dark - Obscure not easily understood or explained as a dark passage in an author a dark Saying. We Say we can hear in the dark
Gross - We Say, five gross or ten gross
Gulf - Having reminded the Rich Man of the contrast between his condition and that of Lazarus in their earthly lives, and of its reversal in their respective conditions at present, Abraham is made to Say, ‘In all these things (see RVm Emmanuel Title - He has a vision of the Virgin "conceiving and bringing forth a son"; he sees Him growing up in the midst of the poverty brought on by Achaz's wicked course, but he does not Say that He will be born in the near future
Allegory - Well might it be said, as it is said, when Jesus, who had been secretly set up from everlasting the glorious Head of his body the church, was openly to be brought into the world,"Let all the angels of God worship him!" (Hebrews 1:6) It will be a blessed view of this sweet allegory, now so graciously explained to us as it is, by the Holy Ghost himself, if both he that writes and he that reads, when summing up the wonderful account, can Say with the apostle, "We are not children of the bond-woman, but of the free
Aera - a series of years, commencing from a certain point of time called an epocha: thus we Say, the Christian aera; that is, the number of years elapsed since the birth of Christ
Sabeans - Genesis 10:7 , are probably of Arabia Felix: they were famous for spices; the poets gave them the epithet of soft and effeminate, and Say they were governed by women:...
Medis, levibusque Sabaeis ...
Imperat hic sexus
Heart - To speak to any one's heart is to comfort him, to Say pleasing and affecting things to him
Mount Paran - ) So that Paran hath proved an asylum to the distressed on many occasions, as recorded in the Scriptures; and in how many more that are not recorded in public memorials , who shall Say! It is blessed when souls under exercise find the Lord in the wilderness dispensations, who have missed such discoveries in the peopled city
Alien - Unexpectedly, the prophets have little to Say about aliens
Thought - We Say, a man's thoughts are employed on government, on religion, on trade or arts, or his thoughts are employed on his dress or his means of living
Nicolaitanes, a Heretical Sect - About them he has nothing to Say (I. 232) Says that Hippolytus and Epiphanius make Nicolas the deacon of Act_6:5 answerable for the errors of the sect called after him; whereas Ignatius Clement of Alexandria Eusebius and Theodoret condemn the sect but impute none of the blame to Nicolas himself
Lamentations - ...
Although Jeremiah is often assumed to be the writer of Lamentations, the book does not Say who wrote it
Wages - Deuteronomy 15:18 seems to Say that a hireling cost the farmer twice as much as a slave, and since the latter received only his keep and his few clothes, it follows that the former will have earned the equivalent thereof, over and above, in wages. ), but it is perilous to compare too closely the highly developed social conditions of Babylonia, even at this early period, with the simpler forms of Hebrew life, Say under the monarchy
Naphtali - Jacob in his dying prophecy Says, "Naphtali is a hind let loose, he giveth goodly words. " The targums of Pseudo-Jonathan and Jerusalem Say Naphtali first told Jacob Joseph was alive. "Naphtali (say the targums) is a swift messenger, like a hind that runneth on the mountains, bringing good tidings
Gift - When Christ has ascended, it is the Father who will send ‘another Comforter’ (John 14:16); and when trials and persecution shall arise, it is the Father by whom, Christ Says, ‘it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall Say’ (Matthew 10:19). We see this confidence inspiring the multitude to glorify God ‘which had given such power unto men’ in the healing of the palsied man (Matthew 9:8), and making the practical Martha Say, ‘I know that whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give unto thee’ (John 11:22). ...
It is notable that Christ’s only recorded request for a personal favour should have been the occasion of that deep Saying concerning ‘the gift of God’ (John 4:10)
Sodom - If they came to any place in which their words were not received, they were to shake off the dust of their feet; ‘Verily I Say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city. However, I Say unto you [3] that for the land of Sodom it shall be more tolerable in the day of judgment than for thee [2]. 216) Says that the author ‘appends a sentence which reminds us of 161845111327 Matthew 10:15
Lion - The dying patriarch blessing the tribe of Judah, and holding forth his prophetic Sayings with an eye to Christ, describes our glorious Judah, or Jehudah, under this strong figure—his hand was to be "in the neck of his enemies;" meaning that he would totally destroy them from the head to the feet. (2 Samuel 23:20) Frequent expressions we find of the kind by Say of allusion in the Scriptures. (See Revelation 12:10-11)...
If I might be permitted under this article to offer one observation more, it should be to Say, what a mercy it is for us that this apostate Spirit which scours through the earth, and the Prince of the power of the air, and now worketh, as we are told he doth, in the children of disobedience, is invisible
Power - It is even possible to Say that a field has kôach, as it does or does not have vital “powers” to produce and harvest: “When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength [2] and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. The believer must learn to depend upon God and trust in Him: “This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, Saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts” ( Hypostatical Union - They Say, that from the moment of the virgin's conception, there commenced an intimate and indissoluble union between Christ and God, that these two persons presented in Jesus Christ one προσωπον , or aspect, but that the union between them is merely a union of will and affection, such in kind as that which subsists between two friends, although much closer in degree. The Monothelites, an ancient sect, of whom a remnant is found in the neighbourhood of Mount Libanus, disclaim any connection with Eutyches, and agree with the Catholics in ascribing two natures to Christ; but they have received their name from their conceiving that Christ, being one person, can only have one will: whereas the Catholics, considering both natures as complete, think it essential to each to have a will, and Say that every inconvenience which can be supposed to arise from two wills in one person, is removed by the perfect harmony between that will which belongs to the divine and that which belongs to the human nature of Christ
Hannah - All the more-Why is it? Is it to spare and shield them from the preoccupation and the dispersion of affection, and from the coldness and the rudeness and the neglect of one another that so many of their neighbours suffer from? And is it to teach them a far finer tenderness, and a far rarer honour, and a far sweeter solicitude for one another? Or, on the other hand, is it out of pure jealousy on God's part? Is it that He may be able to Say to them, Am I not better to thee than ten sons? Or, again, is it in order to make them meet, long before His other sons and daughters around them are made meet, for that life in which they shall neither marry nor be given in marriage? Which of all these reasons, or what other reason, has their God for what He does with so many of His best saints? But all this time we have been intruding into those things of which he Says to us-What is that to thee?...
Elkanah of Mount Ephraim, Hannah's husband, was, as we Say, a true gentleman. What else could they become with such a father? When the blind lead the blind, what can you look for? That temple post, and that doited old priest sitting idle in the sun, and Hannah drunk with sorrow, and the way that Eli looks at her, and the things he Says to her-Rock of Ages, let me hide myself in Thee! Only to Thy cross I cling-as I see Eli, and myself in Eli, and my children in Hophni and in Phinehas and in Ichabod. O my God, when Thou Sayest that Thou wilt do a thing at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle, I understand what Thou Sayest and concerning whom Thou speakest. Say to me that in Thy mercy I am to have this year also in which to rise off my seat and to acquaint myself with my people's sorrows, and to go out and in among them spending and being spent. ' Little did her adversary think-only, people like Hannah's adversary never think-little, I was going to Say, did Peninnah think what a life of sin she had plunged Hannah into. She staggered with her sorrow; she fell against the altar; she did not know what she was Saying or where she was going; she actually forgot her own name, and did not answer when her name was spoken. Aaron himself would have been provoked to Say to Hannah to put away her wine. The milk of human kindness, not to Say of womanhood, would suddenly turn to burning brimstone in Hannah's bosom. I am a devil if you knew me!'...
'Whom do men Say that I, the Son of man, am? Some Say that thou art Jeremias. 'Pascal was greedy of happiness,' Says Sainte-Beuve in a fine essay, 'but of a noble and an infinite happiness
Alexander the Coppersmith - And thus it is, that when Paul is so soon to depart from all his false friends and all his implacable enemies alike, the Apostle writes this much-needed warning to his young and inexperienced successor, and Says, "Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil, the Lord reward him according to his works, of whom be thou ware also, for he hath greatly withstood my words. Now, what do you Say? What do you do? Suppose such a man as Alexander the coppersmith has arisen in your community and is doing Alexander's very same work over again under your eyes every day, what do you do in that case? Do you content yourself with despising and detesting the mischief-making man in your heart? Should you not rather take some of his more wicked letters and speeches and point out to the simple and inexperienced the great lessons that lie on the face of such things? Is malice and misrepresentation less important to point out to a young man entering on life, than bad grammar and slovenly composition? There are studies in sheer malignity set us every day, as well as studies in style; and a teacher of morals should treat the one kind just as a teacher of letters always treats the other. Did Paul feel in his heart, and did he entertain and express to Timothy, all the anger and resentment that is expressed in the text? Did Paul actually Say, "The Lord reward Alexander the coppersmith according to his evil works?" Whether he did or no, that makes no difference to us. Were another Alexander to rise in our day, ay, and were he to do all the evil to us and to our work that Alexander did to Paul and to his work, we must never Say what Paul is here made to Say, Paul was put by Alexander to the last trial and sorest temptation of an apostolic and a sanctified heart. I must not even let myself Say, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord. No, I must rather Say, 'Let thy vengeance fall on me rather. " Paul is at his very best in that; for it is not Paul at all who Says that, but it is He speaking in Paul who, when He also was forsaken, said, "Father, forgive them. " "I am crucified with Christ," Says Paul when he is at his best
Take - This word seems to be allied to think, for we Say, I think a thing to be so, or I take ...
it to be so. duco for we Say, to take a likeness, and to draw a likeness. We Say, a child takes to his mother or nurse, and a man takes to drink which seem to include attaching and holding. So we Say, take your choice. To assume as, I take the liberty to Say. In this sense, we usually Say, the bird takes to a bush, the squirrel takes to a tree
Sayings (Unwritten) - SAYINGS (UNWRITTEN). —Certain Sayings ascribed to Christ, though recorded by early writers, are not found written in the Gospels, and therefore are known as the Agrapha, or Unwritten Sayings of Our Lord. ...
There must once have been a large amount of Agrapha—of teachings and Sayings which have not reached us in the pages of Holy Writ. ...
The extra-canonical Sayings are preserved in some Manuscripts of the Gospels, and in those religious romances known as the Apocryphal Gospels, also in the Commentaries of the Fathers; but there are, besides, a few Sayings which are Agrapha in that they are not included in the written Gospels, but yet possess high attestation as being parts of the text of Acts and 1 Cor. ...
The Sayings preserved in some Manuscripts of the Gospels are of the nature of textual variations for the most part. Those which are not universally admitted may yet be authentic traditions, though extra-canonical: relics of the many Sayings which were not recorded by the Evangelists. The very ancient MS at Cambridge known as Codex Bezae, which exhibits many remarkable variations from the usual text of the Gospels, has between Matthew 20:28-29 the following:...
‘But ye, seek ye from little to increase, and from greater to be less; but also when, having been invited, ye enter in to sup, not to go and sit down in the prominent places, lest a more honourable than thou should come in, and he that invited to the supper should come forward and Say to thee, “Withdraw still lower”; and thou shouldest be put to shame. But if thou shouldest go and sit down in the inferior place, and one inferior to thee should come in, he that invited to the supper will Say to thee, “Draw together still higher”; and this shall he to thee profitable. ...
The following Sayings, however, are in a different category. ; yet the words attributed to Christ in these two sections, and in the texts cited above, must certainly commend themselves to unprejudiced ears as authentic reminiscences of the Master’s Sayings, even if we refuse them a place in the canonical records. ...
The Sayings of Christ which have been preserved outside the NT by ecclesiastical writers, though not actually numerous, are too many for quotation in this article. After twelve years go forth into the world, lest any one Say, We did not hear. ...
(b) ‘There is the following story: “Behold, the Lord’s mother and his brethren were Saying to him: ‘John the Baptist baptizes unto remission of sins; let us go and be baptized by him. ...
(c) ‘We read, too, of the Lord Saying to the disciples: “And never rejoice, except when you have looked upon your brother in love” ’ (in Ephesians 5:3 f. ...
The ‘Sayings’ contained in a fragmentary papyrus of the 3rd cent. ’...
(c) ‘Wherever there are two, they are not without God; and wherever there is one alone, I Say, I am with him. ) has:...
‘For this cause, if we do these things, the Lord said, “Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, and do not my commandments, I will cast you away, and will Say unto you, ‘Depart from me, I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity. ’...
Many Sayings ascribed to Jesus have been collected from Mohammedan sources (cf. are useful: ‘Sayings’ from Manuscripts and Fathers—Lock, Expositor, iv. [3] 1, 97; ‘Oxyrhynchus Sayings’—Swete, ExpT [5] 257, 321, 401; ‘Sayings’ from Mohammedan sources—Margoliouth, ExpT the Woman With the Issue of Blood - Christ could cure a twelve year old issue of blood incidentally, and just by the way, as we Say; ere ever He was aware He had healed that woman of her blood, but not for all her remaining life of her sin. Even if it is incurable, let us not Say so. It is; but let us not Say it even within ourselves. Press through, and grasp tight, and hold fast till you hear Him Say, 'Somebody is detaining me. You must touch Him every day; and if you will not call me extravagant, and carried away, I will Say-Do the same thing every hour and every moment of the week
Bereans - Upon this subject they Say, the majority of professed Christians stumble at the very threshold of revelation; and, by admitting the doctrine of natural religion, natural conscience, natural notices, &c. These they reckon inseparable, or rather the same, because (say they) "God hath expressly declared, he that believeth shall be saved; and therefore it is not only absurd but impious, and in a manner calling God a liar, for a man to Say I believe the Gospel, but have doubts, nevertheless, of my own salvation. Consistently with the above definition of faith, they Say that the sin against the Holy Ghost, which has alarmed and puzzled so many in all ages, is nothing else but unbelief; and that the expression "it shall not be forgiven neither in this world nor that which is to come
Hold - So we Say, the provisions will last us but the phrase is elliptical for will hold or last for us, the verb being intransitive. ...
In this application, we often Say, to hold true, to hold good. We now Say, to hold out. But we now Say, to keep up
Drunkenness - Paul does not Say to the Roman Christians, ‘Let us walk lawfully, not in revelling and drunkenness,’ but ‘Let us walk becomingly’ (εὐσχημόνως, Romans 13:13). ‘Paul paints the scene in strong colours; but who would be warranted in Saying that the reality fell at all short of the description?’ (Meyer, Com. He does not categorically Say to the Christian, ‘Thou shalt not drink wine,’ but he reasons that it is good (καλόν)-it is a beautiful morale-in certain conditions and from certain motives, to abstain. There was evidently a tendency among Christian liberals, who rightly gloried in their free evangelical position, to Say, ‘If men will pervert and abuse our example, we cannot help it; the fault is their own, and they must bear the consequences. It is safe to Say that if spirits had never been discovered the history of the question would have been entirely different’ (A
Doctrine - For instance, what we Say about humanity affects what we Say about Christology; what we Say about election shapes what we believe about the church. It goes without Saying that most Christian doctrines reflect something of the culture in which they were brought to speech and Scripture
Good - We Say, good timber, good cloth, a good soil, a good color. We Say, one is as good as dead. ...
There are many that Say, who will show us any good
Saul - Now, if Saul's character was still so obscure to the subtlest and the acutest of all our preachers, I cannot expect to be able to Say much to purpose upon it. Hannah, and Samuel, and Eli, and Hophni and Phinehas, and Ichabod were all household words, as we Say, in every household in Israel. The prophet Samuel had been a public man, as we Say, long before Saul was born. Josephus Says that Samuel had an inborn love of justice. ' 'Saul,' Says the most sensible of commentators, 'has no longer the heart of a husbandman, concerned only with corn and cattle; he has now the heart of a statesman, a general, a prince. Say it, and see if He will not. Bring the men who Say, Shall Saul rule over us, said the people, and put them to death this day. If all that is not to be set down to Saul's humility, self-command, and magnanimity, not to Say piety, then Saul's character is obscure indeed. The great preacher did not Say it till he had felt it to be quite impossible to draw out Saul's obscure life into a consistent and open piece
Paul's Blamelessness as a Minister - Instead of Saying to us Here is Philippi, and here is Ephesus, and here is Corinth, and so on: Paul Says to us Here were afflictions, and here were necessities, and here were troubles on every side. What would you Say for a relaxation some day soon after the session is over to make a real geographical map of all the places where Paul was a preacher and a pastor; and then to distribute beside those sacred sites all the afflictions, the necessities, the distresses, the imprisonments, the tumults, and the labours of the text. "In tumults," he Says with special emphasis. How then do we stand in this matter of blame and shame? And blame and shame or no, are we any wiser men, and any better men today because of those tumults? Or after all our lessons are we just as ready for another tumult, and as ill-prepared for it as ever we were? Are we just as ill-read, and as ill-natured, and as prejudiced, and as hot-headed, and as full of pride and self-importance, as ever we were? What do you think? What do you feel? What do you Say? You must surely see now, as you look back, what a splendid school for Christian character, and for Christian conduct, all those tumults were fitted, and intended of God, to be to you. That is to Say, they were all intended to test and try and prove you and me as both ministers and men of God, and that by the only proof we can give to God or man. If you were all ministers I would go on to Say in your name, and you would agree with me, as to what a cruel chapter this is. But let us recollect ourselves, and Say that it is all right. We shall every day walk about amid the ruins of our past ministry, and shall Say over it-Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord. That is to Say, if you have a minister who will take reprehension, either in public or in private, at your hands. "It is a mark of the deepest and truest humility," Says a great saint, "to see ourselves condemned without cause, and to be silent under it
Philip: Deacon And Evangelist - And the woman would welcome Philip, and would Say to him, Come in, thou blessed of the Lord, for when I was thirsty He gave me drink. And thus it is that when Luke tells Theophilus that Philip preached 'Christ' to the Samaritans, and then that the same evangelist preached 'Jesus' to the Ethiopian eunuch, it is not for nothing; it is not of no consequence what Luke Says, or how he Says it. And Bengel writes with his needle-pointed pen and Says that "from the Old Testament point of view, progress is made from the knowledge of Christ to the knowledge of Jesus; while from the New Testament point of view, the progress is made from the knowledge of Jesus to the knowledge of Christ. " "Not a single syllable," Says Basil, "of all that is written concerning Jesus Christ should be left uninvestigated. ...
Now, I must stop for a moment at this point to Say how much I feel both impressed and rebuked by the noble conduct of Peter and John. They did not Say, The deacon has his proper place. They did not Say that Philip should attend to his proper work, and let preaching alone. ...
Both Stephen and Philip have made this impression also upon me that they were born preachers, as we Say. It would be resented as the height of intrusion and incivility among us if one man were to Say to another over his book on the deck of a steamer or in a railway carriage, Are you understanding what you are reading? But look at it in this way. And thus it is still that the Church collects into her colleges the very best minds she can lay hold of in all her families, and trains them up under her very best teachers, and then when they are ready Says to them, Go join thyself to this and that vacant pulpit, and make the people to understand what they read. " "It is mainly by the institution of expounding and preaching," Says John Foster, "that religion is kept a conspicuous thing, a public acknowledged reality. If we are told that we should rather Say that it is public worship that has this effect, we have to answer that public worship, apart from expounding and preaching, has a very small effect in favour of religion. A work of Saying, Agabus must increase, and I must decrease
Heman - 'In the matters of God Heman was the King's seer,' Says the sacred writer. ...
'My soul is full of troubles,' Says this great seer, speaking about himself in the eighty-eighth Psalm. ...
'My soul is full of troubles,' Says Heman, 'till I am driven distracted. We water it down till we Say that our Lord was sore amazed and very heavy. Say to them that for all their present shame they shall yet have double. Say to them that this is wisdom. Say to them that this is the only mind that hath the true wisdom. Say to them, and assure them, that this is the beginning in them of the wisdom, and the truth, and the love, and the salvation of their God and Saviour Jesus Christ. ...
Now, with all that, this is not to be wondered at that Heman Says next. ' Much as Heman and Asaph had in common, they were all the time such strangers to one another when their distractions were upon them that they felt, as we Say, as far as the poles asunder. That is to Say, enter thine own distracted heart. Only, there is a sermon of authority which Says, Be ye therefore perfect; and it is through terrible distractions, and darknesses, and severities, and sanctifications that this perfect salvation comes to some men: and it looks to me as if you were one of them. 'Who comforteth us in all our tribulations,' Says Paul also, 'that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble
Shadow - James used a related Greek word to Say that God is not a fleeting, changing shadow (James 1:17 )
Enroll, Enrollment - ...
As to charges made against Luke's accuracy, Moulton and Milligan Say as follows: "The deduction so long made
Merodach Baladan - ) Sargon in the inscriptions Says that in the 12th year of his reign he drove Merodach Baladan from Babylon after ruling 12 years. Sennacherib Says in his first year he drove him out (Merodach Baladan fleeing to Nagitiraggus, an island in the sea: Isaiah 20:6), setting up Belib. Inscriptions Say that Merodach Baladan, having been conquered in battle by Sargon, and Babylonia having been ravaged, fled to "the islands at the mouth of the Euphrates
Hachilah, the Hill - There is an undesigned coincidence between David's language in Psalms 11:1, "how Say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain," and the independent history (1 Samuel 26:20)," the king of Israel is come out to seek a flea, as when one doth hunt a partridge in the mountains," a confirmation of the genuineness of both psalm and history
Death: Differently Viewed by Different Characters - When it comes to that, how shall you feel? Are you a stranger, or a convict, or are you going home? Can you Say,' I know whom I have believed'? Have you a Friend within the veil? And however much you may enjoy the voyage, and however much you may like your fellow passengers, does your heart sometimes leap up at the prospect of seeing Jesus as he is, and so being ever with the Lord?–James Hamilton, D
Nazarene - Had the prophets expressly foretold He should be of Nazareth, it would not have been so despised; nor would the Pharisees, who were able from Micah 5 to tell Herod where Messiah's birthplace was - Bethlehem (Matthew 2) - have been so ignorant of the prophecy of His connection with Nazareth as to Say, "out of Galilee ariseth no prophet" (John 7:52)
Priests - We may Say that they were family priests
Chariot - This vision would be to Elisha a source of strength and encouragement, for now he could Say, "They that be with us are more than they that be with them
Disease - We Say a diseased limb a disease in the head or stomach and such partial affection of the body is called a local or topical disease
More - No more! that is, Say no more let me hear no more
Garden - The voice of nature seems to Say, ‘I will give you rest
Gluttonous - The rebellious son is to be brought by his parents to the elders, to whom the parents are to Say, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice, he is a riotous liver and a drunkard
Day of the Lord - It fact, it is not too much to Say that the eschatology of Judaism is really a development of the implications of the prophetic teaching as to the Day of Jehovah
Fell - GOD permits the devil to exercise his power from heavenly places so that he strikes as lightning strikes, but no one can possibly Say "I have him under control
Hecebolius, a Rhetor at Constantinople - Julian wrote to Hecebolius to Say that "since they had done what could not be allowed in any well-governed city," "in order to help the men the more easily to enter the kingdom of heaven as it was prescribed" by their "most wonderful law he had commanded all moneys to be taken away from the church of the Edessenes that they might be distributed among the soldiers and that its property should be confiscated to his private treasury; that being poor they might become wise and not lose the kingdom of heaven which they hoped for" (Julian Ep
Cover - If I Say, surely the darkness shall cover me-- Psalms 139
Equal - Ye Say, the way of the Lord is not equal
Flower - We Say, the youth are the flower of the country
Ill - Unfavorable suspicious as when we Say, this affair bears an look or aspect
Dust - The modern Oriental, if asked regarding any questionable business, will daintily grip the lapel of his robe or tunic and gently shake it, turning aside his head as if he should Say, ‘Not even the dust of that transaction has touched me
Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani - Who shall Say what this was? Who is competent to describe the horrors of it, when it induced such a cry in the soul agonies of Jesus? Well may every child of God pause over the renewed reading of it, and in the contemplation, consider the love and tenderness of Jesus to his people, who thus endured the being forsaken of his Father for a season, that they might not be forsaken for ever
Circumcision - "Behold, I Paul (said he) Say unto you, that if ye be circumcised Christ shall profit you nothing. To be circumcised, therefore, after Christ was come, was in effect denying that Christ Was come, and by that act Saying, We are looking for his coming
Hind - " (Song of Song of Solomon 2:17) And who shall speak of the earnestness of the Lord Jesus to come over the mountains of sin, and hills of corruption, in our nature, when he came to seek and save that which was lost? Who shall describe those numberless anticipations which we find in the Old Testament of Jesus, in appearing sometimes as an angel, and sometimes in an human from? as if to Say, how much he longed for the time to come, when he should openly appear, in the substance of our flesh, as "the hind of the morning!"...
And there is another beautiful resemblance in the hind, or roe, to Christ, in the loveliness as well as swiftness of this beautiful creature
Sick, To Be - When Joram is described as being sick because of wounds suffered in battle (2 Kings 8:29, RSV), perhaps it would be better to Say that he was weak. ” The NASB renders it “lovesick,” but the TEV is probably closest to the meaning when it Says “weak with passion
Pollute - ” The Jerusalem Bible Says: “This man was the first to invoke the name of Yahweh. ” One must ask whether the writer meant to Say that it was not until the birth of Enosh, the son of Seth, that people “began” to call on the name of the Lord altogether, or whether he meant that this was the first time the name Yahweh was used. Perhaps the writer is simply Saying that in contrast to the apparent non-Godfearing attitude expressed by Cain, the generation beginning with Seth and his son Enosh was known for its God-fearing way of life
Baal Zebub - Winkelman has given the figures of two heads, "both of them images of Jupiter, called by the Greeks ‘Απομυιος , and by the Romans Muscarius; that is to Say, fly driver; for to this Jupiter was attributed the function of driving away flies
Zeal - "It has been affirmed," Says he, "no zeal is right, which is not charitable, but is mostly so. " May we not go farther still? May we not Say, that true zeal is not mostly charitable, but wholly so? that is, if we take charity, in St. Phinehas is commended for having expressed much zeal against those wicked persons that violated the law of the Lord, Numbers 25:11 ; Numbers 25:13 ; and in Psalms 69:9 , the psalmist Says, "The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;" my earnest desire to have all things duly ordered about thy worship, and my just displeasure and indignation at all abuses in it, have wasted my natural moisture and vital spirits
Amen - It is also used to express acquiescence in another's prayer, 1 Kings 1:36 , where it is defined as "(let) God Say so too," or in another's thanksgiving, 1 Chronicles 16:36 , whether by an individual, Jeremiah 11:5 , or by the congregation, Psalm 106:48
Again - " That is to Say, palin is here set in contrast to the time when God first brought His Son into the world
Read - Saying sentence. to Say or tell, to flow a speaker, a rhetorician
Serve - To treat to requite as, he served me ungratefully he served me very : We Say also, he served me a trick, that is he deceived me, or practiced an artifice on me
Value - We Say, the value of a thing is what it will bring in market
Sponsors - It would be difficult to Say with any degree of certaintyat what period the office of Sponsors was established, but itappeared in the very earliest ages of the Christian Church
Disease - In most cases, however, it is not possible to Say why people suffer from sickness, disability or disease (John 9:1-3)
Passion Passions - Paul Says that Christ was ‘subject to suffering’ (παθητός, Acts 26:23)-that is to Say, in His humanity
Nazareth - It is striking how accurately Luke steers clear of a mistake; he does not Say they ascended or descended to reach the precipice, but "led" Jesus to it. He does not Say the "city" was built on the brow of the hill, but that the precipice was "on the brow," without stating whether it was above (as is the case) or below the town
Boldness - In 2 Corinthians 10:1-2, where the same verb is rendered ‘to be bold’ in Authorized Version , the Revised Version prefers ‘to be of good courage’; and similarly ‘we may boldly Say’ of Authorized Version in Hebrews 13:6 is rendered in Revised Version ‘with Good courage we Say
the Penitent Thief - He may have heard the Baptist Say: "Behold the Lamb of God!" He may have been among the multitude who sat and heard the Sermon on the Mount. 'This is Jesus of Nazareth,' he would Say to himself. Some Say that Paul will sit next to Christ in Paradise. But the penitent thief could Say, "I am crucified with Christ" in a sense that even Paul could not Say that
Silence - The Sayings of Jesus are limpid gems of ethical thought, flawless in their purity, enunciating principles of universal applicability. The high priest urged Him to Say something in His defence, but Jesus held His peace. Here is apparently a seeker after truth to whom Jesus has nothing to Say. Jesus has nothing to Say to craven superstition seeking to condone its own vices by taking religion under its protection. To the question, ‘Whence art thou?’ Jesus has nothing to Say. Jesus has nothing to Say to the jeers and mockery of the infuriated people, or to the taunts of priests and Pharisees. But when the multitude rebuked the blind men who cried importunately to Him at the gate of Jericho, Jesus listened to their appeal (Matthew 20:31); and when the disciples sought to silence the mothers who brought their children to be blessed, Jesus encouraged them with one of His most striking and characteristic Sayings (Matthew 19:13, Mark 10:13, Luke 18:15)
the Man Who Went Out to Borrow Three Loaves at Midnight - ...
Our Lord, Says the evangelist, was praying in a certain place. "Which of you," He said, turning to the twelve, "shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, and shall Say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves. How many travellers did you Say had come to you? And how many loaves will they need? Three? Take four. Oh, no, Says the petitioner, three will do. Take four, at any rate, Says the half-naked and generous-hearted householder. " "I Say unto you because of his shamelessness he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. Indeed, it was the very shamelessness, that is to Say, the lateness and the loudness, of the knocking, that was the success of it. Never mind who cries shame, Says our Lord to us. " As much as to Say-'When my soul thirsteth for Thee; when my flesh longeth for Thee; when my soul is like the man in the parable who had a hungry traveller in his house, and had nothing to set before him; then I remember the Lord. "When praying at night," he Says to his people, "do not forget to confess with all importunity, and sincerity, and contrition, those sins into which you have fallen during the past day
the Angel of the Church of the Laodiceans - Archippus was still to all intents and purposes a young minister when this message was sent to him from the aged Apostle, "Say to Archippus, take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it. ...
"Because thou Sayest, I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing. He was not such an absolute idiot as actually to Say that. I have been deceived all my life by Sayings of philosophers, by scraps of poetry, but most of all by the pride of my own heart, into an opinion of self-power, which the Scriptures plainly tell me, and my repeated failures tell me, that I possess not. " Well might Charles Lamb Say, "Reader! lend thy books to S. And at such times of temptation, Satan would Say to Him-'If thou be the Son of God, command these stones to become bread, and command the wayside streams to run with wine and milk. ' But He would Say to Satan-'Neither have I gone back from the commandment of His lips: I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. ' And so Saying He entered a certain village, and knocked at the door
Draw - We Say, the horses draw a coach or wagon, but they drag it through mire yet draw is properly used in both cases. We Say, to draw a lottery, or to draw a number in the lottery. We Say also, a number draws a prize or a blank, when it is drawn at the same time. We Say, a horse or an ox draws well
Bible, Hermeneutics - If we want to interpret a piece of literature, we must ask at least five questions: 1) Who was the writer and to whom was he writing? 2) What was the cultural-historical setting of the writer? 3) What was the meaning of the words in the writer's day? 4) What was the intended meaning of the author and why was he Saying it? 5) What should this mean to me in my situation today? These basic questions lead into other questions that must be explored in a serious attempt to understand the message of the Bible. The reader today must somehow try to enter the world of the biblical writer and seek to understand what the writer was Saying. You really should utilize several good translations to help you understand what the ancient writer was trying to Say to you. of the words used is very important in understanding what the writer was trying to Say to you, the reader. The Bible is made to Say many things the original writers did not intend by interpreting particular statements without regard to their contexts. The careful interpreter will always want to compare an interpretation of a passage with what the Bible teaches elsewhere to see if the interpretation “fits” with what the Bible Says in other places. If the Bible is a living revelation of God to us, as we Say it is, then we must do more than decipher its ancient history
the Rich Man And Lazarus - But I see now that our Lord nowhere Says so. All are silent when he speaks and wait till he has finished what he has to Say. At the same time, while all that is true, great riches are sometimes great stepping-stones to a high place in heaven; that is to Say, when they are in the possession of a man whose treasure does not lie in his riches. But what did Abraham as a matter of fact Say? He said these immortal words to Lot. For it describes what every lost sinner will Say and do when he comes to himself too late before the judgment-seat of Christ. Just think for yourself what you will Say and do if you come to yourself for the first time there. " That is to Say, he became a Puritan in his appreciation of earnest preaching, when it was too late. 'Put a testimony into it,' he Says to us toothless preachers. "Testify!" and again he Says-"Testify!"...
Son, remember, testified Abraham, that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things
Simon Magus - To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, Saying, This man is the great power of God. Nay, I think it but fair to Simon Magus to Say that he had completely deceived himself as well as Philip. When Simon Magus came up out of the water, had a voice from heaven spoken at that moment, it would surely have been heard to Say, 'This is an arch-deceiver, deceiving, but, at the same time, being deceived. It is this that makes our crucified Master Say to us ministers continually, "Few of you there be that find it. I must not allow myself to Say a single word as to Philip's mismanagement of his catechumens' and young communicants' classes. "...
"Fictus," that is to Say, a living and breathing fiction, was the name given to such converts as Simon Magus in those early days. "I am not of their mind," he Says, "who think that Simon Magus made only a semblance of religion. 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. It is not, and it never will be, till, as Calvin Says, and as Christ Says, you deny yourself daily. Never search the papers to see what they are Saying about you. " "We may conjecture," Says Calvin, "that Simon Magus repented
Catholic Church Extension Society of England And w -
The White Cross Ransomer, a priest, pledges himself to offer up the Holy Sacrifice at stated intervals for the intentions of the guild, and the laity undertake to Say daily the special "Ransom" prayer
Determine, Determinate - Here the verbal form might have been adhered to by the translation "determined;" that is to Say, in the sense of "settled
Sign - 1: σημεῖον (Strong's #4592 — Noun Neuter — semeion — Say-mi'-on ) "a sign, mark, indication, token," is used (a) of that which distinguished a person or thing from others, e
Obedience - Obedience means to hear God’s voice, accept his authority and do what he Says (Exodus 15:26). Disobedience means to ignore God’s voice, reject his authority and not do what he Says (Jeremiah 7:24). If people Say they love God but deliberately disobey his Word, they deceive themselves
Exhortation - "The express words, " Says a good divine, "of scriptural invitations, exhortations, and promises, prove more effectual to encourage those who are ready to give up their hopes, than all the consolatory topics that can possibly be substituted in their place. They well not Say that the omission was an oversight in the inspired writers; or admit the thought for a moment, that they can improve on their plan: why then cannot they be satisfied to "speak according to the oracles of God, without affecting a more entire consistency? Great mischief has thus been done by very different descriptions of men, who undesignedly concur in giving Satan an occasion of suggesting to the trembling enquirer that perhaps he may persevere in asking, seeking, and knocking, with the greatest earnestness and importunity, and yet finally be cast away
Neither - Five or ten persons being charged with a misdemeanor or riot, each may Say, neither of us was present
Tongues, Confusion of - "We Say for the other, that is, this edifice, the house of the Seven Lights of the Earth, the most ancient monument of Borsippa, a former king built it [2], but he did not complete its head
Deuterocanonical - They Say that under Esdras, a great assembly of their doctors, which they call, by way of eminence, the great synagogue, made the collection of the sacred books which we now have in the Hebrew Old Testament; and they agree that they put books therein which had not been so before the Babylonish captivity; such as those of Daniel, Ezekiel, Haggai, &c
Obligation - One Says, from the moral fitness of things; another, because it is conformable to reason and nature; another, because it is conformable to truth; and another, because it is expedient, and promotes the public good. And thus a depraved man might Say he is under no obligation to obey the laws of the land, because, through his desire of living a licentious life, he is led to suppose that there should be none
Earrings - ...
God does not Say that His law was to be written upon scrolls, but to be "for a sign upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes," i
Paganism - The first of these may well be called fabulous, as treating of the theology and genealogy of their deities, in which they Say such things as are unworthy of deity; ascribing to them thefts, murders, adulteries, and all manner of crimes; and therefore this kind of theology is condemned by the wiser sort of heathens as nugatory and scandalous: the writers of this sort of theology were Sancho-niatho, the Phoenician; and of the Grecians, Orpheus, Hesiod, Pherecyde, &c
Calvary - John 19:20 and Hebrews 13:12 Say that Jesus was taken outside the city to be crucified
Enoch - , though it is not possible to Say which version is the more original
Jebus, Jebusites - ]'>[3] mentions the Jebusites only once ( Numbers 13:29 ), and then only to Say that, like the Hittite and Amorite, they inhabit the mountain
Italian Band - Ramsay regards this suspicion as groundless, and makes effective use (Was Christ born at Bethlehem?, 1898, p. ’ Besides, ‘the entire subject of detachment-service is most obscure; and we are very far from being able to Say with certainty that the presence of an auxiliary centurion in Caesarea is impossible, unless the Cohort in which he was an officer was stationed there’ (Ramsay, op
God, City of - Prosperous under the gods, the pagans could now Say with a semblance of truth, "Rome perished in Christian times!" The result was demoralizing, for many simple Christians, bewildered and at a loss for a reply, faltered in their faith
Guild of Our Lady of Ransom -
The White Cross Ransomer, a priest, pledges himself to offer up the Holy Sacrifice at stated intervals for the intentions of the guild, and the laity undertake to Say daily the special "Ransom" prayer
Fire (Kindle) - ...
James 3:6 (a) The tongue that is inspired by Satan to speak and Say things that are cruel, hateful and sinful is described as a burning flame that injures, harms and hurts those who hear it
Bands - These heathen Say that they will throw off all such restraint
Tree - I do not take upon me to Say that in numberless instances the names and trees are not figurative, for I rather think they are
Faith, - If a man Says he has faith, it is reasonable to Say to him, "Show me thy faith" by thy works
Demas - The name ‘Demetrius’ occurs twice in the list of politarchs of Thessalonica; and, while we cannot Say with certainty that the Demas of 2 Timothy 4:10 is identical with either of these, the possibility is not excluded. Ramsay, St. Ramsay, St
Flourish - We Say agriculture flourishes, commerce flourishes, manufactures flourish
Naphtali - The prophecy seems to Say that Zebulun and Nephthalim were beyond the Jordan; but some judge that three districts are alluded to; Zebulun and Nephthalim; the way of the sea beyond the Jordan; and Galilee of the Gentiles
Gerizim - It is certain, that, in our Saviour's time, this temple was in being; and that the true God was worshipped there, since the woman of Samaria, pointing to Gerizim, said to him, "Our fathers worshipped in this mountain, and ye Say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship," John 4:20
First-Fruits - The rabbins Say, that they were obliged to bring at least the sixtieth part of their fruits and harvest. Paul Says, Christians have the first-fruits of the Spirit, Romans 8:23 , that is, a greater abundance of God's Spirit, more perfect and more excellent gifts than the Jews
Caiaphas - The depositions of certain false witnesses being insufficient to justify a sentence of death against him, and Jesus continuing silent, Caiaphas, as high priest, said to him, "I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou art the Christ, the Son of God!" To this adjuration, so solemnly made by the superior judge, Jesus answered, "Thou hast said; nevertheless I Say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. " On hearing these words, Caiaphas rent his clothes, Saying, "What farther need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard his blasphemy
Mount Olivet - Here, I would Say, from hence Jesus ascended when he went up on high, and led captivity captive, and received gifts for men; yea, when he received gifts for men in the manhood of Christ Jesus
Command - ...
2: ἔπω (Strong's #2036 — Verb — epo — ep'-o ) denotes "to speak" (connected with eipon, "to Say"); hence, among various renderings, "to bid, command," Matthew 4:3 ; Mark 5:43 ; 8:7 ; Luke 4:3 ; 19:15
Honey - It is probable, that it was is order to keep the Jews at a distance from the customs of the Heathen, who were used to offer honey in their sacrifices, that God forbade it to be offered to him, that is to Say, burnt upon the altar, Leviticus 2:11 ; but at the same time he commanded that the first-fruits of it should be presented. Hasselquist Says, that between Acra and Nazareth, great numbers of wild bees breed, to the advantage of the inhabitants; and Maundrell observes of the great plain near Jericho, that he perceived in it, in many places, a smell of honey and wax as strong as if he had been in an apiary
Resurrection of the Dead - "The Sadducees Say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit," Acts 23:8
Secularization - He is likewise freed from his vows, without prejudice to the obligations attached to major Orders, if he has received them; he is not obliged to Say Divine Office by reason of his profession nor is he bound to the other rules and constitutions
Think - He thought within himself, Saying, what shall I do? ...
Luke 12 . Think not to Say within yourselves,we have Abraham to our father-- Matthew 3 ...
Rich - So we Say, a rich description a discourse rich in ideas
Paul - (See Acts 13:9) And some have gone so far as to Say, that the Deputy himself called Paul by this name, as giving him one of his own names in token of his love for him, as Vespasian the emperor, it is well known, called Josephus Flavius, his own name, out of regard
Omniscience - Apart from assurance of what God has done, we cannot Say what He must do. In a sense, every prophet who Says what God will do, claims a knowledge which dominates all the details of God’s providence in every department (1 John 2:20 ‘Ye know all things’)
Theonas, Bishop of Alexandria - His episcopate, Says Neale (Hist. " Thus it was a primary duty to avoid everything that was "base and unworthy, not to Say flagitious," lest the name of Christ should thereby be blasphemed
Veronica - This statue they Say is a statue of Jesus Christ and it has remained even until our times so that we ourselves saw it whilst tarrying in that city. Macarius Magnesius Says she was princess of Edessa and that her name was Veronica or Berenice (Macarii Magnet
Consecration - When he approached near the rail of the communion table, he bowed towards it five or six times; and, returning, went round the church, with his attendants in procession; Saying first the hundredth and then the nineteenth Psalm, as prescribed in the Roman Pontifical. Then the bishop, sitting under a cloth of state in the aisle of the chancel, near the communion table, took a written book in his hand, and pronounced curses upon those who should hereafter profane that holy place by musters of soldiers, or keeping profane law courts, or carrying burdens through it; and at the end of every curse he bowed to the east, and said, Let all the people Say, Amen. When the curses were ended, which were about twenty, he pronounced a like number of blessings upon ALL that had any hand in framing and building that sacred and beautiful church; and on those that had given, or should hereafter give, any chalices, plate, ornaments, or other utensils; and, at the end of every blessing, he bowed to the east, and said, Let all the people Say, Amen
Measures - reads, "the children that are dandled in the hands," which expresses the distance across the hand from the extremity of the thumb to the extremity of the little finger, when they are stretched as far apart as possible, Say nine to ten inches. When the phrase "shekel of the sanctuary" is used, Exodus 30:13, it means, not that this was different from the common shekel, but that it was a true standard weight, according to the authorized standard preserved in the sanctuary, or, as we should Say, a sealed weight or measure, to denote that its accuracy is certified by authority
Hour - Hence David beautifully speaks of the waiting of his soul on the Lord, "more than they that watch for the morning;" yea, said he, repeating it with earnestness, "yea, I Say, more than they that watcheth for the morning. Who was it but God the Holy Ghost, that caused the evening sacrifice, from the first moment of appointed sacrifices in the church to the glorious finishing of all sacrifices in the death of the Lord Jesus, thus minutely to correspond? And what a sacred hour that was all along considered in the divine mind, when not the sacrifice only, but the very hour of offering it was so scruptulously regarded! Think then reader, how infinitely momentous must be the thing itself, when the mere shadow of the substance was so solemnly attended to; when through a period of more than fifteen hundred years the evening lamb was regularly sacrificed in the very hour which, in after ages, Christ, the Lamb of God, should offer himself in a sacrifice to God, to take away the sins of the world! Lord, I would Say, for myself and reader, cause this hour of the afternoon, which was so sacred in the Jewish church, to be sacred to my soul also; and wherever I am, or however engaged, at the sounding bell at three in the afternoon, call my forgetful wandering thoughts to the hill of Calvary
Glory - I Say, as the Glory-man; for I would beg to be understood, that this name is peculiarly belonging to our Jesus, and to him only. " (See Proverbs 8:22-31)...
I would only beg to add one thought more upon this subject, and to observe to the true believer in Jesus the blessedness the heart of that man feels, who, to such views of the divine glory, can set to his seal the truth of it in his own personal experience, when with the apostle he can Say, "God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ
Lie - The trees of Lebanon are personified and Say concerning the king of Babylon: “Since thou art laid down, no feller [6] is come up against us” ( Say: “Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father
Lord - This promise became reality through Moses, to whom God explained that He was not only the “God who exists” but the “God who effects His will”: “Thus shalt thou Say unto the children of Israel, The Lord [2] God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and Say unto them, The Lord [2] God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, Saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt: And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites …” ( Lily - Such may have been the lily mentioned in Matthew 6:28-30 ; for the royal robes were purple: "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I Say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these;" so in Luke 12:27 . God has so adorned these flowers and plants of the field, which retain their beauty and vigour but for a few days, and are then applied to some of the meanest purposes of life: will he not much more take care of his servants, who are so precious in his sight, and designed for such important services in the world? This passage is one of those of which Sir Thomas Browne Says, "The variously interspersed expressions from plants and flowers elegantly advantage the significancy of the text. Salt, in his "Voyage to Abyssinia," Says, "At a few miles from Adowa, we discovered a new and beautiful species of amaryllis, which bore from ten to twelve spikes of bloom on each stem, as large as those of the belladonna, springing from one common receptacle. This superb plant excited the admiration of the whole party; and it brought immediately to my recollection the beautiful comparison used on a particular occasion by our Saviour: ‘I Say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these
Babylon - Babylon is described as cut into squares—some Say 676—by straight streets crossing each other at right angles, those at the river being closed by brazen gates, as the banks of the river were fortified by high walk; the river was crossed by drawbridges and lined with quays; the two palaces on opposite sides of the river were connected by a bridge, and also by a tunnel under the river. These gardens were 75 feet high and covered three and a half acres, enclosed in an area of larger extent, some Say 1000 feet on each side
Waterpot - ) Though it would be hazardous to Say that the words οἱ ἠντληκότες τὸ ὕδωρ in John 2:9 render it probable that ὕδωρ (also from the source) is to be understood after ἀντλήσατε in John 2:8, it may yet be stated that ἀντλεῖν is frequently used of the drawing of water (cf. Though the comic poets have so much to Say of wine, this, apparently, is the sole instance. Her leaving her waterpot was not, as some Say, because her faith in Christ made her forget the purpose for which she had originally come, but because it impelled her to announce her discovery of Him to others without delay; and in her haste to return to Sychar with the news, she did not choose to be encumbered with her heavy waterpot, which could be fetched at any time
Bible, History of Interpretation - Read this way, the Bible can be made to Say anything that you want to imagine!...
The interpretation of the Bible (or any piece of literature, for that matter), is called hermeneutics. Calvin insisted (in the preface to his commentary on Romans) “It is the first business of an interpreter Say what he [1] does, instead of attributing to him what we think he ought to Say
For - ...

Pantaenus, of Alexandria - But we Say that He knows the things that are, as acts of His own will (ὡς ἴδια θελήματα ); and we give good reason for so Saying; for if by act of His will He hath made all things (which reason will not gainsay), and if it is ever both pious and right to Say that God knows His own will, and He of His will hath made each thing that hath come to be; therefore God knows the things that are as acts of His own will, inasmuch as He of His will hath made the things that are. " The other, contained in the Eclogae e Propheticis appended to the works of Clement, is introduced by "Our Pantaenus used to Say" ( ἔλεγε ), and lays down as a principle in interpreting prophecy that it "for the most part utters its Sayings indefinitely [1], using the present sometimes for the future and sometimes for the past

Kind of literature...
Among the many forms within the Bible are prose narratives, poems, wisdom Sayings, laws, visions, letters, genealogies and debates. They must allow the Bible to Say what it wants to Say, regardless of what they would like it to Say
WHICH things are an allegory,' Says the Apostle when he brings in Sarah and Hagar her handmaid into the fourth chapter of his Epistle to the Galatians. 'It is an allegory,' Says Bengel, 'when anything is said and another thing more excellent is signified. I Say to myself, half in faith, half in fear, half in mockery at myself, Shall I ever have pleasure? Shall Christ ever be formed in me? Till I am sometimes, like poor Sarah in her sterile tent, driven desperate. Say, It is the Lord. Say that though He should slay you, yet you will not complain. Say this; Say it with Micah when he was in some such distress, Say, 'I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He plead my cause and execute judgment for me. Thou God seest me! Hagar, by reason of the extremity of her sorrow; by reason of the utter desolateness and brokenness of her heart; and by reason of the sovereign grace and abounding mercy of God-Hagar, I Say, stands out before us in the very foremost rank of faith, and trust, and experience, and assurance. That is His voice in thy heart, Saying 'Hagar, Sarah's maid, whence comest thou, and whither wilt thou go?' stoop down, Hagar, and drink and be refreshed and revived
Solomon - 'The prayer of Solomon,' Says a scholar of no less grace and genius than of scholarship, 'so fully reproduced, and so evidently precomposed, may well have been written under Nathan's guidance. ' He does not Say positively that it was so precomposed and written. But he evidently believes, for his part, that it was; and he Says what he does Say in this matter for the sake of those who will let him Say it, and not for those who will not. Had Solomon lived up to that prayer; no, I must not Say that, for no man could do that, not Nathan himself; but if Solomon in all his unspeakable sensualities and idolatries had ever given the least sign or symptom that he felt shame for his life, or remorse when he remembered his prayer: had it not been for that, I, for one, could never have let it light on my mind that any one but Solomon himself composed what is here called Solomon's prayer. But I must Say it is both a relief and an edification to my mind that the greatest castaway in the Bible may not have been the original and real and only author of one of the greatest and best prayers in the Bible. Bacon's Essays are our English Book of Proverbs, and an English Ecclesiastes could easily be collected out of Bacon's Letters and Speeches. Besides my innumerable sins, I confess before Thee that I am debtor to Thee for the gracious talent of Thy gifts and graces, winch I have neither put into a napkin nor put it as I ought to exchangers, but have mis-spent it in things for which I was least fit, so as I may truly Say my soul hath been a stranger in the house of my pilgrimage. It is not to be wiser than what is written to Say that it was not a vulgar and an everyday sensuality that made Solomon in the end such a castaway. Even grace itself, Says Shepard, is flesh in respect of God
Jacob - And the first of Jacob's open-air nights is a night to be remembered, as we Say. How dreadful is this place! Jacob had been taught to feel and to Say how dreadful was that place where his father's altar was built; and those places where God had come down to talk with Adam, and Abel, and Noah, and Abraham, and Hagar. But it was not till that morning at Luz that Jacob learned to Say: Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned! How dreadful did his past life look now, as it lay naked and open under that gate of heaven and that shining ladder! The lasting lesson of that best of all mornings to Jacob is memorably preserved to us and to our children in our Second Paraphrase; and as we sing or Say to God that noble piece we still reap into our own hearts the first sheaf out of the rich harvest of Jacob's life. We Say that Greek sometimes meets Greek. We Say that diamond sometimes cuts diamond. We will sit all our days and speak against our brother till some one comes and reports to us what they Say who sit and speak against us. And till Laban had to give it up and to confess himself completely outwitted; and till he piously and affectionately proposed a covenant at Mizpah, Saying, This pillar be witness that I will not pass over it to harm thee, nor thou to harm me
Nebuchadnezzar - After we have read all that the historians and the travellers have to tell us about ancient Babylon, no wonder, we Say to ourselves, that Nebuchadnezzar's dreams were the dreams of a magnificent imagination. And, then, at the end of his life, the king not only let Daniel Say this to him, 'Wherefore, O king, break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by showing mercy to the poor, if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity,' but he bowed his head and did it. To any man who is not a chastened son and a true saint of God it must look a small sin, if it is a sin at all, for a great king to walk in his own palace and to Say to himself the simple truth. And if Nebuchadnezzar had not built every single street of it, this, at any rate, he could Say, that he had found Babylon a city of brick and had made it a city of marble. For how great are His signs, and how mighty are His wonders! I was walking proudly in my palace in the kingdom of Babylon, and I said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? And while the word was yet in my mouth, there fell a Voice from heaven, Saying, O King Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And at the end of the days I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted up mine eyes to heaven, and mine understanding returned to me, and I blessed the Most High, and I praised and honoured Him who liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation: and all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or Say to Him, What doest Thou? Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and His ways judgment; and those that walk in pride He is able to abase. 'Listen to my own process,' Says that great spiritual genius. Then we Say to Belteshazzar, and to Behmen, Thou art able: and the spirit of the God of holiness is in thee. Seneca Says somewhere that nothing is bought so dear as that which is bought with prayer-that is to Say, you must sell all if you would truly pray. We are dust and ashes, and far worse than that, Says Hooker also, as he went on in prayer
Redemption - ’ To Say λύτρον is to Say ‘ransom’; and to Say λυτροῦσθαι, λύτρωσις, is to Say λύτρον; while ἀπολύτρωσις is but a stronger way of Saying λύτρωσις. ‘For we call Him Helper and Redeemer,’ he Says, with an allusion to Psalms 19:14. ‘Observe,’ Says H. He speaks of giving His life as a ransom ‘for,’ or rather ‘in the place of,’ ‘instead of,’ ‘many,’ the preposition (ἀντί) employed emphasizing the idea of exchange, or, we may Say shortly, of substitution. This is only to Say, in our current modes of speech, that the ransom paid by Christ, when He gave Himself for us, purchases for us not only relief from the guilt but also release from the power of sin. ‘Knowing,’ Says he, ‘that ye were redeemed … from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers’ (1 Peter 1:18). Paul contented himself in Titus 2:14 with Saying merely that Christ ‘gave himself for us. Christ, unlike the Levitical priests with their repeated entrances, entered the holy place ‘once for all,’ because the ransoming He was obtaining through His blood was not like theirs, temporary in its effect, but ‘eternal,’ that is to Say, of never-failing absoluteness (cf. But the fundamental point in our present passage is that Christ could ransom men from their sins, that is to Say, from the consequences of their sins, including, of course, that consciousness of sin which bites into the conscience (Hebrews 9:14), only by dying. The ransoming found-perhaps we may even Say stored-in Christ Jesus is here represented as the result of His sacrificial death; this sacrificial death is made the ground of God’s forgiveness of sins; and this forgiveness of sins is identified with the justification which God gratuitously grants believing sinners. It Says, indeed, ‘not on the ground of the ransoming that is in Christ Jesus’ (διὰ τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν), but ‘through the instrumentality of the ransoming that is in Christ Jesus’ (διὰ τῆς ἀπολυτρώσεως). What Paul Says is, that the
Stone - There are sermons in these stones, we might Say, for they have lessons to impart to us regarding Christ’s history, His teaching, and His Person as the Messiah. ...
(c) At Cana of Galilee Jesus ‘manifested his glory’; and there, we might Say, He was again beholden to the stones; for the six waterpots by whose aid He wrought His first miracle were waterpots of stone (John 2:6). ...
The 5th of the Oxyrhynchus (1897) ‘Sayings of Jesus’ contains the striking words, ‘Jesus saith … Raise the stone and there shalt thou find me; cleave the wood and there am I. The Saying may be understood in a sense that is perfectly in keeping with teaching that is found in the NT (e. It is generally agreed that, in their present form at least, these ‘Sayings of Jesus’ were not spoken by the Lord Himself, and do not even belong to the earliest age (see Lock and Sanday, Two Lectures on the ‘Sayings of Jesus’ (1897); cf. So far from that, He went on to Say, ‘Every one that falleth on that stone shall be broken to pieces; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will scatter him as dust’ (Luke 20:18 = Matthew 21:44). The allusion to the verse in Psalms 118 is unmistakable; but in what he proceeds to Say the Apostle makes use further of two passages in Isaiah
Blasphemy (2) - Perhaps the safest thing is to Say that this was not in mind at the time, so that no direct pronouncement was made concerning it; and, further, it is to be observed that Trinitarian distinctions do not appear in these teachings of Jesus. the phrase ‘the sons of men’ occurs in an earlier part of the Saying (Mark 3:28). Jesus did not expressly Say that the scribes who put forward this Beelzebub theory of His work had actually committed this sin. Our Lord warns His hearers that such a sin cannot be forgiven either in the present age—the pre-Messianic, or in the age to come—the Messianic, that is, as we should Say, the Christian age. ...
At the same time, while this must be understood as the correct exegesis of the words, the Saying should be interpreted in harmony with the spirit of Christ. Against (1) and for (2) is the fact that our Lord Says nothing of the offender’s disposition, but only refers to the sin, its heinous character, and consequent never-to-be-denied or forgotten ill-desert. ’ Upon this the scribes and Pharisees who were present complained that He was speaking blasphemies because only God could forgive sins, that is to Say, that He was arrogating to Himself a Divine prerogative
Dioscorus (1), Patriarch of Alexandria - Liberatus Says that he had never been married. According to a priest named Athanasius, Cyril's nephew, Dioscorus, from the outset of his episcopate ("which he obtained one knows not how," Says the petitioner), harassed him and his brother by using influence with the court, so that the brother died of distress, and Athanasius, with his aunts, sister-in-law, and nephews, were bereft of their homes by the patriarch's malignity. The reading proceeded as far as Eusebius's question to Eutyches, "Do you own two natures after the incarnation?" Then arose another storm: "The holy synod exclaimed, 'Away with Eusebius, burn him, let him be burnt alive! Let him be cut in two—be divided, even as he divided!'" "Can you endure," asked Dioscorus, "to hear of two natures after the incarnation?" "Anathema to him that Says it!" was the reply. "of what faith do you Say this?" asked Dioscorus. This aroused once more the zealots of the Alexandrian party; one bishop sprang forward, shouting, "This upsets the whole church!" The Egyptians and the monks, led by Barsumas, cried out, "Cut him in two, who Says two natures! He is a Nestorian!" Basil's nerves gave way; he lost, as he afterwards said, his perceptions, bodily and mental ( ib. He began to Say that he did not remember whether he had uttered the obnoxious words, but that he had meant to Say, "If you do not add the word 'incarnate' to 'nature,' as Cyril did, the phrase 'one nature' implies a fusion. Dioscorus proposed that these decisions, with those of Nicaea, should be recognized as an unalterable standard of orthodoxy; that whoever should Say or think otherwise, or should unsettle them, should be put under censure. " "It must be," said Dioscorus in answer; "if my tongue were to be cut out for it, I would still Say so. " "The Egyptians," Says Tillemont, "who signed willingly enough, did so after the others had been made to sign" (xv. ...
Dioscorus and his council—as we may well call it—proceeded to depose Theodoret and several other bishops; "many," Says Leo, "were expelled from their sees, and banished, because they would not accept heresy" (Ep. Let others Say why it was not read. " "They want to deny all that is confessed to be the fact," said Dioscorus; "let them next Say they were not there. " All the bishops—so the acts of Chalcedon Say expressly—cried out, "We believe as did Cyril; we did so believe, and we do . he would not Say, "Christ has now two natures"). He had nothing more to Say than he had said to former envoys. He prevented Leo's letter to Flavian" (the acts of Ephesus Say the letter to the council, v
Preaching Christ - ‘God,’ Says Peter, ‘hath made this same Jesus both Lord and Christ’ (Acts 2:36). No doubt this gave its whole character to primitive Christianity; but if we accept the testimony of the Apostles to the resurrection, we shall be slow to Say that it transformed its character, and made it a new and essentially an inferior thing as compared with the religion of Jesus. ‘After the death of Jesus,’ he Says, ‘the ethical religion of redemption, which had entered the world with Jesus, underwent its most decisive transformation of a formal kind; it ceased to be the religion of sonship to God, and became faith in the Christ-nature of the man Jesus. Even on a priori grounds we should Say this was improbable, and there is a very significant piece of evidence that it is not true. It is idle to Say that Jesus is the Christ if we do not know who or what Jesus is. It has no meaning to Say that an unknown person is at God’s right hand, exalted and sovereign; the more ardently men believed that God had given them a Prince and a Saviour in this exaltation, the more eager would they be to know all that could possibly be learned about Him. From this point of view, then, we may Say that preaching Christ is not taking leave of Jesus in any sense or to any extent; it is preaching Jesus exalted and sovereign. Hence we might Say that to preach this gospel is to preach Christ, on condition, of course, that it is preached in its connexion with Jesus exalted. We have no reason to Say that there is anything in these Gospels which is untrue to the historical personality of Jesus, anything which represents Him in mind, in will, in temper, in character, in His consciousness as a whole of His relations to God and man, as other than He really was. The great life that stands out before us in the Gospels is more real than anything in the world; and Jesus is so far from being hidden from us that it is no exaggeration to Say that we know Him better than anybody who has ever lived on earth. If we bring these ideas to a point, we shall Say that to preach Christ means to preach Jesus in the absolute significance for God and man which He had to His own consciousness and to the faith of the first witnesses; and to preach Him as exalted, and as having this absolute significance now and for ever. We still believe that the Kingdom of God is coming; we believe this because we believe in Jesus; we believe that it is coming only through Him and as He comes; that is what the Christian of to-day means when he Says we believe in Him as the Christ. It is not rejecting the absolute significance of Jesus to Say that this spectacular detail is relative to the age and its mental outlook; but it would be a rejection of it, and a repudiation of Jesus as the Christ, if we denied that the Kingdom of God—however experience enables us to picture its coming and consummation—comes and is consummated through Him alone. Here again we may Say that the spectacular representations of the judgment are a form which we may recognize to have only a relative value, while yet we do not dispute in the least the absolute truth that the standard of reality and of worth in the spiritual world is Jesus, and that no life can be finally estimated except by its relation to Him
Paul as Sold Under Sin - I at once send back the book and Say, No, thank you. Just as Paul himself would have scornfully sent back the same book with this message to its author-If I have told you earthly things, and you have so misunderstood me, how shall I trust you to interpret my heavenly things? No, thank you, I Say, as I send back the soon-sampled book. That is to Say-There is no other possible interpreter of Paul, in all the world of interpretation, but only Paul himself. Only, as Luther Says, give not such strong wine to a sucking child. ...
"Did I see," Says Dr. Newman, "a boy of good make and mind, with the tokens on him of a refined nature, cast upon the world without provision, unable to Say whence he came, unable to tell us his birthplace, or his family connections, I should conclude that there was some sad secret connected with his history. "It was the Saying of a good man, lately gone to his rest, whose extended pilgrimage was ninety-three years, that he must often have been swallowed up by despair, had it not been for the seventh chapter of Paul's Epistle to the Romans. " "Ah, Duncan man," said old David, laying his hand on his friend's shoulder, "they never Say Fauch! i' the grave. " And Holy Writ itself Says that where no oxen are, the crib is clean. But lift up your head, for it is to you and not to any other man, that God speaks in His holy prophet and Says: "For your shame you shall have double. You will soon hear His voice speaking in anger to your jailors at your prison door and Saying how displeased He is over all your affliction
the Children of Capernaum Playing at Marriages And Funerals in the Market-Place - And as He looked on Capernaum He wept and said, "And thou, Capernaum, whereunto shall I liken thee, but to thine own children playing in the market-place, and calling to their fellows, and Saying-We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced: we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. 'Now my brethren, if you and I have grown up, and are growing old, without having been blessed of God with a new heart: that is to Say with a gentle, humble, meek, affable, and complying heart: if we are come to manhood and womanhood with a hard and stony heart: a proud, self-willed, obstinate, despotic, and tyrannical heart still within us-how is it all to end? and when? and where? We cannot be content, surely, to go on and on with such an evil heart within us, making ourselves miserable, and making all who have to do with us miserable also. Now what are you doing to alter that? Or are you doing anything? And are you content to go on as you are, with such a heart as yours and you taking no step to mend it? Yes, what step are you taking to mend it? For even if you came to Him to whom that Capernaum mother came, He would only Say to you what He said to her, and what He said to her far-off fathers and mothers through His servant Ezekiel. "Repent," He will Say to you, "and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so your iniquity will not be your ruin. " Come away then, and let us look at some of the times and the places when and where you must set about making yourselves a new heart; that is to Say, a broken, contrite, chastened, tender, yielding, companionable, heart. Say that you will undertake to see the registrar and the minister
Mary Magdalene - " As much as to Say: 'All the seven devils are in every man's heart, but they do not all rage and rend equally in every man's heart: no, nor in the same man's heart at all times. Now, what do you Say to that? How is it with your heart? 'I have no books,' said Jacob Behmen. As I was Saying, I have not the least notion as to who or what Mary Magdalene's seven devils were, and much less do I know how they could possibly be all cast out of her heart in this life. Complete, or all but complete, deliverance from two, Say, of the seven I could easily believe, but the remaining five are quite beyond me. When He bowed His head she saw Him do it, and she heard Him Say, It is finished! It was not a place for a woman. And now that He has ascended to His Father's house, He is Saying to His saints and to His angels to this very day the very same words that He said in Simon's house-"This woman since I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. " As much as to Say,-it was not to Peter, nor to James, nor to John, that He gave that signal favour and unparalleled honour
Soul - How far these arguments are conclusive I will not Say; but the safest, and, in fact, the only sure ground to go upon to prove this doctrine is the word of God, where we at once see it clearly established, Matthew 10:28 . 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97; Drew's Essay on the Immateriality and Immortality of the Soul

Shiloh - Precious Lord Jesus, I would Say, Art thou come indeed, to my heart, to my house, to my family? Lord, when shall the full gathering of thy people be? Haste, haste, my Beloved, and arise out of Zion, "to turn away ungodliness from Jacob; Be thou as a roe, or a young hart, upon the mountains of spices!" (See Sceptre
Psalms - And it is remarkable, (but whether it may be considered as confirming this opinion I do not presume to Say) that when the Lord Jesus was expounding to the two disciples, in his way to Emmaus, on the morning of his resurrection, the things concerning himself, he made use of those very arguments as proofs in his humiliation, and glory of his divine mission

Goat - ...
While I am upon this subject of the goat, it may not be unacceptable to the pious reader, to Say a few words on the very striking ceremony appointed by the Lord of the scape goat on the great day of atonement. " (Isaiah 53:6) And Jesus is no less represented as Saying, "Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. And hence the prophet is supposed to allude when Saying, "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Some of the Jews Say, that the edge of the wilderness had a precipice where the Azazel fell over, and was dashed to pieces

The schoolboys who have read the Cyropœdia can best picture Nehemiah to themselves when he Says that he was the King of Persia's cupbearer. Then I was very sore afraid, and said unto the king, Let the king live for ever! Why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire? Then the king said to me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven, Says the cupbearer. The enemies of Jerusalem 'took it heinously,' Says Josephus, that the wall of Jerusalem was in the way to be rebuilt. That is to Say, he looked after the walls of Jerusalem, and the whole temple furniture, and the support of the temple ministry. And because of all this, Says Nehemiah, we make a sure covenant and write it out, and our princes, Levites, and priests all seal unto it, that we will not forsake nor forget the house of our God. Let him know what he is doing every time he does it, and he will thus purchase for himself a good degree; that is to Say, good work, and a real love for the good work, and step after step, he will escape all the Sanballats of the city, and will go on from work to work, through a youth and a manhood of interest and usefulness, occupation and protection, to an old age of the best love among us and the highest honours. Let him Say nothing to any man
Nazirite - Premising that its earliest history is quite unknown to us, we may Say that it makes its first recorded appearance with Samson (Judges 13). It was not a valid vow to Say ‘Let my hand be nâzîr,’ it was valid to Say ‘Let my liver be nâzîr’; but what was the meaning of Saying either we cannot tell. By a play on words the people might Say, ‘Jesus-not Nazarene but Nazir. We may decide the grammatical difficulty by Saying that, though the construction is ambiguous, it is St. For, once again, why should he perform that in a heathen land and not wait till he was in Palestine?

Of both it was true to Say, ‘Thus Says the Lord’ (1 Corinthians 10:11; Amos 3:8; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Micah 1:1-2; Micah 3:8; Isaiah 30:8-9; Acts 11:28; Acts 13:1-2; 1 Corinthians 14:37; Amos 3:13; Revelation 1:1-3)
Anointing (2) - ...
There are several points of difference between John’s and Matthew-Mark’s accounts of the anointing: (1) Matthew and Mark Say that it happened in the house of Simon the Leper, and make no mention of Lazarus and his sisters. They simply Say that the ‘beautiful work’ was wrought by ‘a woman. (3) They represent the nameless woman as pouring the ointment not on the Lord’s feet but on His head, and Say nothing of her wiping His feet with her hair. 281–283; Ramsay, Was Christ Born at Bethlehem? pp. In Revelation 3:18 Jesus Says to the Church of the Laodiceans, ‘… and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see,’ where the effect of the application of collyrium is used as a figure of the healing and enlightenment which are found in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Mark 14:8 Jesus Says of the gracious act of Mary of Bethany in anointing Him at the feast, ‘She hath anointed (μυρίζω fr. When Jesus in the synagogue at Nazareth read from Isaiah 61 the prophetic words, ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he anointed (χρίω me to preach good tidings to the poor …’ (Luke 4:18), and went on to Say, after closing the book, ‘To-day hath this scripture been fulfilled in your ears’ (Luke 4:21), He definitely claimed to be set apart to the Messianic calling. Again, in 1 John 2:27 he Says, ‘And as for you, the anointing (χρίσμα) which ye received of him abideth in you
Esdraelon - Some scholars Say that the Valley of Jezreel is the name for the entire region; Esdraelon being the western portion, comprised of the Plain of Accho and the Valley of Megiddo
Last - ...
'Achăryôn connotes “future,” or something that is yet to come: “… So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall Say, when they see the plagues of that land …” ( Irony - Since irony means the opposite or near opposite of what it seems to Say, interpreters of the Bible need to be able to recognize it. ” Job was really Saying that his so-called comforters were not as important or wise as they thought they were. Balaam's desire to be made wealthy at Israel's expense in Numbers 22-24 certainly ended up backfiring upon both the soothsayer and his Moabite patron, Balak
Trinity - Many have ventured to Say, that it ought to be ranked with transubstantiation, as equally absurd. Allix's Testimonies of the Jewish Church; Display of the Trinity by a Layman; Scott's Essays
Persecution - God’s people should have confidence in him that, when they are persecuted, they will know how to act and what to Say (Matthew 5:44; Matthew 10:17-20; 1 Peter 2:21-2402; 1618451113_9; 1 Peter 4:14-16)

Fit - Is it fit to Say to a king, thou art wicked? Job 34
Liberty - Scripture has little to Say on the mere power of choice, while everywhere recognizing this power as the condition of moral life, and sees real liberty only in the possession and exercise of wisdom, godliness, and virtue
Merits - Even the captain did not seem very grateful; so our hero ventured, in a roundabout style to hint, that such valuable services as his, having saved the vessel, ought to be rewarded at least with some few words of acknowledgment; when he was shocked to hear the captain Say, 'What, sir, do you think you saved the vessel? Why, I gave you that rope to hold to keep you engaged, that you might not be in such a feverish state of alarm

Commendation - ...
(c) ‘Commend’ is used to translate συνίστημι (1) in Romans 3:5, in the sense of demonstration, setting in clearer light (‘but if our unrighteousness commendeth the righteousness of God, what shall we Say?’); (2) in Romans 5:8, in the sense of making proof of (‘God commendeth his own love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us’); (3) in the sense of introduction in Romans 16:1 (‘I commend unto you Phœbe our sister’)

Several passages use 'ôth of omens and/or indications of future events: “But if they Say thus, Come up unto us; then we will go up: for the Lord hath delivered them into our hand: and this shall be a sign unto us ( Accad - It might be too much to Say that therefore it must be Accad; but the inference is at least warrantable; which is farther strengthened by the name of the place, Akarkouff; which bears a greater affinity to that of Accad than many others which are forced into the support of geographical speculations, especially when it is recollected that the Syrian name of the city was Achar
Fo - According to the former, they Say, all the good are recompensed, and the wicked punished, in places destined for each

But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen again

Covenant - ...

The decree of God, however, is not to be conceived in the same way as that of Darius or Nebuchadrezzar, who could Say, ‘I have made a decree: let it be done with speed’ (Ezra 6:12). Paul Says; ‘God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth’ (2 Thessalonians 2:13)
Epistle - a church or a group of churches, or, Say, the bishops of a metropolitan province, has not lost all claim to be regarded as a real letter. ...
Now, as the Christian writers of the Apostolic Age adopted the ‘epistle,’ and, we may even Say, made use of it with a zest that may be inferred, in particular, from the fact that they enriched the literary side of the Gospel and the Apocalypse by means of the epistolary form (cf
Tittle - letters are distinguished from others that they closely resemble, and there are several Jewish Sayings which declare that any one who is guilty of interchanging such letters in certain passages of the OT will thereby destroy the whole world (see Edersheim, LT [4]. ...
On the lips of Jesus the Saying, ‘One jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law till all be fulfilled’ (Matthew 5:18), is startling; and a number of modern critical scholars are inclined to meet the exegetical difficulty by denying the genuineness of the logion—regarding it as an answer of the Evangelist himself to the Pauline anti-legalism, or even as a later Jewish-Christian insertion Certainly, if the Saying stood by itself, unqualified and uninterpreted in any way, there might be some warrant for such criticism, even although on textual grounds there is nothing to be said against the verse, which, moreover, reappears in Luke, though in a shorter form. One might as well Say that when Jesus, in Matthew 5:29-30, bids His disciples pluck out their right eyes or cut off their right hands, He is urging them to a literal self-mutilation, inasmuch as hands and eyes are physical realities, not ideal things. ), we may see in the Saying an utterance that has its polemical bearing. And so in the striking language of paradox and even of hyperbole that He was wont to use when He felt strongly and desired to speak strongly, He exclaimed, ‘For verily I Say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all be fulfilled. ’...
The point of the Saying clearly lies in the word ‘fulfilled. Regarded in this way, the Saying is nothing more than an arresting utterance of the familiar Christian truth of the relation in spiritual things between the kernel and the husk, the calyx and the flower
Bread - In our day we would Say that he did not spend his time reading trash, watching worldly pictures, or gossiping with his neighbors. For this reason, He has to Say "no" to our request
Flood, the - The flood was about 1700 years after the creation of Adam, and it is impossible to Say how many millions of people there were on the earth at the time, or how far they had been dispersed. ...

We must pray for the end for which we work, and work for the end for which we pray; to teach us this our author Says, 'Go to your work, having prayed the gods to accomplish it'" (p. God, he Says, is the sole eternal author of all things; those Platonists who Say that God could only make the universe by the aid of eternal matter are in error (p
Building - -‘But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to Say, not of this building’ (Authorized Version ); better Revised Version ‘but Christ having come a high priest of the good things that are come (Revised Version margin), through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to Say, not of this creation (οὐ ταύτης τῆς κτίσεως)
Protestant - Chillingworth, addressing himself to a writer in favour of the church of Rome, speaks of the religion of the Protestants in the following excellent terms: "Know then, sir, that when I Say the religion of Protestants is in prudence to be preferred before yours, on the one side, I do not understand by your religion the doctrine of Bellarmine, or Baronius, or any other private man among you, nor the doctrine of the Sorbonne, of the Jesuits, or of the Dominicans, or of any other particular company among you, but that wherein you all agree, or profess to agree, the doctrine of the council of Trent; so, accordingly, on the other side, by the religion of Protestants, I...
do not understand the doctrine of Luther, or Calvin, or Melancthon, nor the confession of Augsburg, or Geneva, nor the catechism of Heidelberg, nor the articles of the church of England; no, nor the harmony of Protestant confessions; but that in which they all agree, and which they all subscribe with a greater harmony, as a perfect rule of faith and action; that is, the Bible. The Bible, I Say, the Bible only, is the religion of Protestants
Building - -‘But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to Say, not of this building’ (Authorized Version ); better Revised Version ‘but Christ having come a high priest of the good things that are come (Revised Version margin), through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to Say, not of this creation (οὐ ταύτης τῆς κτίσεως)
Authority in Religion - For present purposes we may, without unwarrantable assumption, Say that the terms of this relation are God and man. ‘This,’ Says He, ‘is eternal life, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, even Jesus Christ’ (John 17:3). ...
While, however, we can with a measure both of ease and of certainty make what we have ventured to call a qualitative analysis of Christ’s conception of religion, it would not be so easy to arrive at a quantitative analysis of it, and Say just how much knowledge, how much emotion, and how much volitional activity must be present in order to the existence in the soul of any real religion. ‘Holy Father,’ He Says in His intercessory prayer; and again, ‘O righteous Father. ...
But, further, that Christ found the ultimate standard of right in God’s nature as expressed through God’s will, is clear also from such statements as these: ‘Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I Say? Father, save me from this hour? but for this cause came I unto this hour. ’ To Him it belongs to Say, ‘Thou shalt,’ and to Him also to Say, ‘Thou shalt not. Very significant for Christ’s claims to be a special organ of the legislative authority of the Godhead is such a statement as, ‘The Son of man is Lord of the Sabbath’ (Matthew 12:8), and equally so this other, ‘Ye call me Teacher and Lord: and ye Say well; for so I am’ (John 13:13). The same conclusion follows even more stringently, perhaps, when our Lord Says, ‘I and the Father are one,’ thereby, as the Jews affirmed, and He Himself did not deny, ‘making himself (thyself) equal with God’ (John 10:30; cf. ...
(3) But to Say that Christ teaches that all legislative authority in religion vests exclusively in God, is hardly to put the case either as fully or as strongly as it needs to be put. So Saying, He denies to the human reason the prerogative, by annulling or setting them aside, to pass judgment upon the propriety or the expediency of Divine prescriptions. Indeed, it is safe to Say that no one has surpassed Christ in the honour, and even—if such words may be used of Him—in the deference with which in practice He treated the judicial rights of the darkest and humblest human souls. ...
(b) Further, as is involved in what has been already said, Christ teaches that the conclusions reached in the exercise of this prerogative are not to be, if, indeed, we should not Say cannot be, dictated by any form of external compulsion
Omnipresence - If we may so Say, Christ’s conception was microscopic rather than telescopic. Stevens Says: ‘He (Jesus) aims to rescue the idea of God from the realm of cold and powerless abstraction, and to make it a practical, living power in the heart. This declaration of Christ, which, as Westcott Says, is ‘unique in its majestic simplicity,’ has many implications. For instance, it is a disputed point whether we ought to Say that’ God fills all space. Strong Says: ‘By omnipresence we mean that God in, the totality of His essence, without diffusion or expansion, penetrates and fills the universe in all its parts. Matter fills space, and on that very account we may not Say that ‘spirit fills space,’ or that ‘God fills all things. In the Fourth Gospel Jesus Says that He ‘came down from heaven’ (John 3:13; John 6:33), and also that He ‘came forth from God’ (John 16:27; John 16:32). And in looking forward to His death, He Says: ‘I came forth from the Father, and am in the world: again I leave the world and go unto the Father’ (John 16:28). God’s spiritual nature refuses to be compared with terms of space, and hence it is incongruous to Say that God is existent in one part of space and not in another. —In John 3:13 our Lord Says: ‘No man hath ascended into heaven but he that descended out of heaven, even the Son of Man who is in heaven. They do but cause Jesus to Say of Himself what the Evangelist Says of Him in " translation="">John 1:18 ‘The only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. Paul have misunderstood and misinterpreted Jesus Christ, there is nothing improbable in the interpretation—we are quite prepared to expect that the Lord Jesus after His resurrection should Say to His disciples, ‘Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world’ (" translation="">Matthew 28:20). It is perfectly in accordance with this conception that Jesus, in contemplating the spread of His Kingdom in ‘all nations,’ ‘to the ends of the earth,’ should Say, ‘Lo, I am with you alway. This is not quite true with regard to the Divine omnipresence any more than to the other natural attributes of God; for did not Jesus Say that God ‘causeth his sun to rise,’ and ‘sendeth rain’ (" translation="">Matthew 5:45), and ‘clothes the grass of the field and the lilies’ (6:30)? Still it is only a slight exaggeration of an important truth
Asceticism (2) - Philo Says that they were indifferent to money, pleasure, and worldly position. We learn from a Saying of Jesus that his rigorous mode of life astonished the people, who gave out that he was possessed by a demon (Matthew 11:18, Luke 7:33). ‘John came neither eating nor drinking, and they Say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they Say, Behold a man gluttonous and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners’ (Matthew 11:18-19, Luke 7:33-34). To one man Jesus denies permission to bid farewell to his relatives (Luke 9:62); to another He Says, ‘Return to thine own house’ (Luke 8:39). He does not Say that those who, for duty’s sake, renounce the world, are on a higher spiritual level than those who do their duty in the world. He admits, indeed, that special circumstances may make it incumbent on an individual to abstain from certain things which others, otherwise situated, may lawfully enjoy; but He does not Say that earthly goods, as such, are irreconcilable with righteousness. He even goes so far as to Say that, humanly speaking, it is impossible for a rich man to be saved (Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 18:27). He Says, ‘Ye cannot serve God and mammon’ (Matthew 6:24). Hence to those who were in danger of falling beneath the tyranny of money and material things He had but one word to Say: ‘Go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor … and come, follow me’ (Matthew 19:21, Mark 10:21, Luke 18:22). ‘This,’ Says Jerome, ‘is the voice of the Lord exhorting and urging on His soldiers to the reward of chastity. In justification of His refusal to lay down fixed rules upon the subject, Jesus goes on to Say that, just as no wise man would sew a new patch on to an old garment, or pour new wine into old bottles, so it would be foolish to graft the new-found liberty of the gospel on to the mass of old observances, and still more foolish to attempt to force the new system as a whole within the forms of the old
Paul as a Pastor - ...
"Serving the Lord," Says Paul about those three years. And thus it was that when Paul said these words:-"Serving the Lord," those who had known Paul best were the first to Say that it was all true. But he had only too good cause to Say all he said, and do all he did, in that root-of-all-evil matter. Paul would never have said what he did Say at that heart-melting moment, and he would never have said it with the heart-melting emphasis he did Say it, unless be had been speaking straight to the point. With all humility of mind, Says Paul to the assembled elders of Ephesus. But after I am like to drop with my work; and most of all with the arrears of it; Paul absolutely prostrates me, and tramples me to death, when he stands up among his elders and deacons and Says: "I take you to record this day that I am pure from the blood of all men!" I do not find his rapture into the third heavens hard to be understood, nor his revelations and inspirations, nor his thorn in the flesh, nor any of his doctrines of Adam, or of Christ, or of election, or of justification or of sanctification, or of the final perseverance of the saints. But it absolutely passes my imagination how a horny-handed tent-maker, with twelve hours in his day, or make it eighteen, and with seven days in his week; a mortal man, and as yet an unglorified, and indeed, far from sanctified man, could look all his elders, and all their wives, and all their sons and daughters in the face, and could Say those terrible words about their blood. Above all his discoveries, when Professor Ramsay goes east to dig for Paul in Ephesus, I would like him to be able to disinter Paul's pastoral-visitation book. Paul would often drop in, as we Say, not indeed to curse the weather, and to canvass the approaching marriages, like William Law's minister, but, all the same, to rejoice with the bridegroom and the bride, and to set down their exact date in his diary, so as to be sure to be on the spot in good time, and in his best attire. And, with all your preaching, and with all your pastoral work performed like Paul's, in intention and in industry at least, you also will surely be able, with great humility as well as with great assurance of faith, to bid your people goodbye, and your kirk-session, Saying-And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified
David - in His Services - I would Say, Lord, now lettest Thou Thy unfaithful and unfruitful and offensive and injurious servant depart in pardon, since mine eyes have seen Thy salvation begun in my son. '...
I have said that David did a great service to the Redeemer of Israel, and I intended to Say it. A service like all that is surely too much honour for any mortal man! Then David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said, Who am I, O Lord God? and what is my house? And is this the manner of man, O Lord God? And what can David Say more unto thee! for Thou, Lord God, knowest thy servant. Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, David Says in another Psalm. 'Even as David describeth the righteousness of the man unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed is that man. It was Paul's privilege to know it both historically and experimentally, as we Say, and then to set it forth doctrinally, as we Say also. And let Him Say to His Son, and to His angels, and to His saints, over you and over your house, I have found a man after Mine own heart; with My holy oil have I anointed him
Sadducees - It has to be remarked of the evidence of Josephus that it almost seems that part of what he had to Say regarding Pharisees and Sadducees has been lost. ...
While the Pharisees, he tells us, hold that some things in the world happen by the will of Providence, and that other things lie in the power of men, ‘the Sadducees take away Providence, and Say there is no such thing, and that the events of human affairs are not at its disposal; but they suppose that all our actions are in our own power’ (Ant. ‘The Sadducees take away Providence entirely, and suppose that God is not concerned in our doing or not doing what is evil; and they Say that to act what is good, or what is evil, is at men’s own choice, and that the one or the other belongs so to every one, that they may act as they please’ (Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) II. This is not improbable in itself, but it is difficult to explain away the agreement on this point between Josephus and Acts 23:8, ‘The Sadducees Say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit. It is sufficient to Say that endless disputes were carried on between the two parties as to the correct dates of the feasts, arising from the fact that while the Pharisees reckoned by a lunar year, the Sadducees computed a solar year (see Cesterley, op
Confession - ...
The Epistles bear the same witness: ‘No one can Say that Jesus is the Lord, save in the Holy Ghost’ (1 Corinthians 12:3). Polycarp’s teacher, Ignatius of Antioch, has much more to Say on the lines of the developed teaching about the person of Christ in opposition to Docetic heresy. 9): ‘Be ye deaf therefore, when any man speaketh to you apart from Jesus Christ, who was of the race of David, who was the Son of Mary, who was truly born and ate and drank, was truly persecuted under Pontius Pilate, was truly crucified and died in the sight of those in heaven, and those on earth, and those under the earth; who moreover was truly raised from the dead, His Father having raised Him, who in the like fashion will so raise us also who believe on Him-His Father, I Say, will raise us,-in Christ Jesus, apart from whom we have not true life. 1, it is referred to the martyrdom of one who witnesses by blood-shedding-that is to Say, in deed, not in word. ’ ‘Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my gospel’ (2 Timothy 2:8), We can safely Say that that gospel included teaching about God who quickeneth all things, reference to Pontius Pilate, to the resurrection, and to the return to judgment; but the inference is most precarious by which Zahn puts them all into the creed with confession of the Holy Spirit, who is named in 2 Timothy 1:14, but not with emphatic correlation of His Person to the Persons of the Father and the Son (cf. But, as von Dobschütz Says, these confessions reveal ‘the magnificent moral earnestness of the man, and not of him only, but of the Christianity of his time’ (Christian Life in the Primitive Church, p
the Unprofitable Servant - "Hear ye what this so exemplary servant saith," said their Master to the twelve, "Verily, I Say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this man has said and done, be told for a memorial of him. And you may visit your dying parishioners every afternoon, and your sick, and aged, and infirm, every ten days, but you will never be able to Say this ploughman's grace over your supper all the days and nights of your pulpit and pastoral life. "...
Our Lord tells all His true ministers to Say every night that they are unprofitable servants, and they all Say it. And yet, long after Paul had denounced and deposed him, we have the Apostle actually Saying, Take Mark and bring him with thee, for he is profitable to me for the ministry. "Demas apostatises," Says Bengel, "but Mark recovers himself. And there can be no better mark of the mind and heart of a true and an accepted servant of God than just that he Says in his mind and in his heart, after every new and better service of his, that he is the most unprofitable of all God's servants. "The more," Says Newman in one of his thrice-written sermons, "any man succeeds in regulating his own heart, the more he will discern its original bitterness and guilt. " And all who are engaged in regulating their own heart-which is our Master's whole commandment-will subscribe to what the great preacher Says about that. "A Book," Says the noble-minded and generous-hearted Chalmers, "of great mental wealth and great mental vigour, rich in scholarship, and of a massive and an original power. It sometimes happens, Says Dods, that the true Christian is so far from boasting of himself that he goes much too far in the opposite direction. Now what is that but making Christ of none effect as your High Priest? What is that but making Him die, and rise again, and intercede for you, in vain? "I have found," Says this eminent theologian and evangelical preacher, "this mode of reasoning successful in enabling the mourner to detect the source of his causeless sorrows, and to recover that peace of mind which results from a simple and unhesitating reliance upon our great High Priest, for the pardon of all our sins, and for the acceptance of all our services. "...
Now, it is all this that explains Paul, and justifies Paul, and makes Paul our greatest evangelical example, where he Says with such assurance of heart,-"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. To be the most unprofitable of servants in our own eyes; to sink into the dust every night speechless with shame and pain over another all but lost day; and at the same time to lie down to sleep accepted in the Beloved,-that is truly to fight the good fight of faith, and to fight it with the whole armour of God: that is really and truly to keep the faith of the gospel till we shall hear our Master's voice Saying over us also,-Well done, thou good and faithful servant! Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord
the Wedding Guest Who Sat Down in the Lowest Room - And now, as this parable Says, He has worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with Him. No man can ever Say to you, Give this man place; no man can ever Say to you, Sit lower down, if you have already chosen for yourself the lowest seat. Pooh-pooh your own heart when it Says to you,-What a grand man you are! When it Says to you,-What a grand sermon that is you have just preached! What a grand book that is you have just published! What a grand run in the race-course that was with all men's eves upon you! And what a grand leap that was, leaving all your rivals far behind you! Turn upon your puffed-up heart and tell it that nobody is thinking about your grand sermons, or your grand books, or your grand runs, or your grand leaps; nobody but yourself. And in a way that, if you knew it, would make you take down your top-sail, as Samuel Rutherford Says. Hear then, what this master in Israel Says:-"Evangelical humility is the sense that a Christian man has of his own utter insufficiency, utter despicableness, and utter odiousness: with an always answerable frame of heart. "All our humility on earth will come to its head in heaven," Says Samuel Rutherford. "And he laid His right hand upon me, Saying unto me, Fear not: I am the first and the last. " Friend! He will Say to us, as He lifts us up in glory as He used to do in grace. Friend! He will Say, go up higher
Death - The Scriptures have nothing directly to Say as to the place of death in the economy of nature. All we can Say is that in the dawn of human history man appears as one already familiar with the correlative mysteries of life and death. And to the vast mass of mankind to Say ‘he is dead’ has never meant ‘he is non-existent. It is noticeable that our Lord has nothing to Say directly concerning death as a physical phenomenon . At the same time, there is no reference in His teaching to natural death as the solemn end of life’s experiences and opportunities, unless an exception be found in the Saying about working ‘while it is day’ ( John 9:4 ): but contrast with this as to tone a passage like Ecclesiastes 9:10 . Note the Saying in Luke 9:60 as bearing on this point
Devil - Thus we Say, indifferently, the devil, or Satan; only the latter has more the appearance of a proper name, as it is not attended with the article. That there are angels and spirits, good and bad, Says an eminent writer; that at the head of these last, there is one more considerable and malignant than the rest, who, in the form, or under the name, of a serpent, was deeply, concerned in the fall of man, and whose head, in the language of prophecy, the Son of Man was one day to bruise; that this evil spirit, though that prophecy be in part fulfilled, has not yet received his death's wound, but is still permitted, for ends to us unsearchable, and in ways which we cannot particularly explain, to have a certain degree of power in this world hostile to its virtue and happiness,—all this is so clear from Scripture, that no believer, unless he be previously "spoiled by philosophy and vain deceit," can possibly entertain a doubt of it. Christ Says, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him; when he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of that which is his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it," John 8:44 . Paul tells us, that in his day there were "false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ; and no wonder," Says he, "for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light," 2 Corinthians 11:13-14 . They Say it is true that the devil has at present a quarrel with God; but the time will come when, the pride of his heart being subdued, he will make his submission to the Almighty; and, as the Deity cannot be implacable, the devil will receive a full pardon for all his transgressions, and both he, and all those who paid him attention during his disgrace, will be admitted into the blessed mansions. This village, Says he, is entirely inhabited by people who are called Isidians, and also Dauasin. Others Say that they show great reverence for the sun and fire, that they are unpolished Heathens, and have horrid customs. They Say that it is just as improper for men to take a part in the dispute between God and a fallen angel, as for a peasant to ridicule and curse a servant of the pacha who has fallen into disgrace; that God did not require our assistance to punish Satan for his disobedience; it might happen that he might receive him into favour again; and then we must be ashamed before the judgment seat of God, if we had, uncalled for, abused one of his angels: it was therefore the best not to trouble one's self about the devil; but endeavour not to incur God's displeasure ourselves
Growing - Enough to Say that in classical literature the verb marks an increase or addition to a person or thing brought about by external agency. It is enough to Say here that they are capable of a single classification. Christ, we may reverently Say it, was content to lay the conception which was ever before Him, in garden, harvest field, and orchard, also before His own. —But if it is thought even by devout and careful students that such ideas are more than may be gathered from our Lord’s actual utterances, those who treasured His Sayings in the Apostolic age did not think so
Faith - A dead, inoperative faith is also supposed, or declared, to be possessed by wicked men, professing Christianity; for our Lord represents persons coming to him at the last day, Saying, "Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?" &c, to whom he will Say, "Depart from me, I never knew you. " He did not question whether they believed the existence of God, but exhorted them to confidence in his promises, when called by him to contend with mountainous difficulties: "Have faith in God; for verily I Say unto you, that whosoever shall Say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe (trust) that these things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith
Reckon, Reckoning - ...
2: λέγω (Strong's #3004 — Verb — lego — leg'-o ) "to Say, speak," also has the meaning "to gather, reckon, account," used in this sense in Hebrews 7:11 , RV, "be reckoned" (AV, "be called")
Quartus - ), and indeed we may Say that in the Apostolic Church the terms ‘brother’ or ‘sister’ and ‘minister’ (διάκονος) were practically synonymous
Wealth - Luke 8:14), and this conception finds a dramatic illustration in the story of the rich young ruler, whose refusal to give up his wealth and follow Christ leads our Lord to Say, ‘How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!’, and ‘It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God’ (Mark 10:23; Mark 10:25, Mark 4:19, Luke 18:24-25). To these Sayings of our Lord is probably related the phrase, ‘Ye cannot serve God and mammon’ (Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13)
Olivet Discourse, the - Many would Say that the reference is to a period of ultimate suffering that is to take place just before the parousia (Christ's return or second coming; see Matthew 7:14 )
Drive - We Say, to drive a team, or to drive a carriage drawn by a team
Pledge - " (Deuteronomy 24:10-13) Precious Jesus! I would Say as I read those sweet Scriptures of mercy, I have pledged to thee all I have, and all I am; and do I not see in this blessed command of thine thy gracious tenderness of heart to give me all my justly forfeited pledges, that the sun may not go down and I be found naked, but sleep secure in thy garment of salvation, that my soul may bless thee! This is indeed the Lord's righteousness, which is upon all, and unto all, that believe
Hair - ...
2 Samuel 14:26 (c) Since Absalom was GOD's enemy, GOD could find little that was good to Say about him
Immanuel, Emmanuel - ...
It has been asked, How could this be a sign to Ahaz, seeing that this event did not take place till centuries after? The prophetic announcement of the birth of such a child was the present evidence to faith that whatever combinations men might make, the remnant could count on God: see Isaiah 8:9,10 , where they Say, "God is with us
Selah - And though there might seem an objection to this, in that the word is more frequently found in the middle part of the psalm or hymn, and not at the last verse, yet, Say they, the sense of that part ends there
Cappadocia - ‘Persons who ascend it (but they are not many) Say that both the Euxine and the Sea of Issus may be seen from it in clear weather’ (Strabo, xii. Ramsay, The Church in the Roman Empire, London, 1893, p
Bethel - It led him to Say, "Surely the Lord is in this place . God thus gave to Jacob the apprehension that the house of God on earth — the gate of heaven — was to be connected with him and his seed, and afterwards God acknowledged the place and the name, Saying, "I am the God of Beth-el," Genesis 31:13
In - A man in spirits or good courage, denotes one who possesses at the time spirits or courage in reason is equivalent to with reason one in ten denotes one of that number, and we Say also one of ten, and one out of ten
Independency of God - If, therefore, all things depend on God, then it would be absurdity to Say that God depends on any thing, for this would be to suppose the cause and the effect to be mutually dependent on and derived from each other, which infers a contradiction
Dancing - " All which very evidently proves, that the dancing spoken of in Scripture totally differed from that vain, frivolous, and idle, not to Say sinful, custom of dancing practised in modern times
Bowels - This was blessedly set forth by the Holy Ghost: (Isaiah 45:24) "Surely, shall one Say, In the Lord have I righteousness and strength; even to him shall men come, and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed
Mount - ...
Oh, that the Lord may graciously enable every one of this description to Say with the church, Until the day of grace break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain, the church, there the myrrh of Christ's fragrancy in sufferings will refresh me, until the day of glory and the everlasting light, unmixed with the shades of night, shall break in upon my soul, and I shall then dwell in the everlasting mountain of the house of God for ever! Amen
Interpreter - And though I would not go so far as to Say, that the glorious Mediator of his people was prefigured in every use of it, yet I do venture to think it was peculiarly significant on this occasion amidst the brethren of Joseph
Philosopher, Philosophy - As to whether there is a Being in any higher position than man, or any future existence for man, they know nothing, and there is, they Say, no means of knowing: it is all unknown
Nazarite - He answered to all the sacrifices, but the day is approaching when He will drink wine anew in the kingdom, as He said in Matthew 26:29 ; and be able to Say to others, "Eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved
Ebal - Accordingly, we may Say, that neither Joshua, nor the priests or tribes, went up to the top of the mountains, but the heads only, who in their persons might represent all the tribes
Regeneration - The change in regeneration consists in the recovery of the moral image of God upon the heart; that is to Say, so as to love him supremely and serve him ultimately as our highest end, and to delight in him superlatively as our chief good. " We are accustomed, Says he to apply the term solely to the conversion of individuals; whereas its relation here is to the general state of things
Naked - "Because thou Sayest, (saith Christ) I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Ezekiel 16:1-14) Surely, every child of God may well Say, "I was a stranger, and Jesus took me in; naked, and he clothed me
Musician - We do not know that there was such an office over the choir as chief musician; certain it is, that neither the Chaldee paraphrase, nor any of the other versions, Say any thing about this chief musician
Hind - Our translators make Jacob, prophesying of the tribe of Naphtali, Say, "Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words
Apple Tree - ...
To the manner of serving up these citrons in his court, Solomon seems to refer, when he Says, "A word fitly spoken is like golden citrons in silver baskets;" whether, as Maimonides supposes, in baskets wrought with open work, or in salvers curiously chased, it nothing concerns us to determine; the meaning is, that an excellent Saying, suitably expressed, is as the most acceptable gift in the fairest conveyance. So the rabbins Say, that the tribute of the first ripe fruits was carried to the temple in silver baskets
Oil - It will be sufficient to Say in general, that to this one glorious office of the Holy Ghost all the anointings we read of in the Old Testament, and the uses to which the the holy oil was appropriated, evidently pointed
Worthy, Worthily - ...
B — 1: ἀξιόω (Strong's #515 — Verb — axioo — ax-ee-o'-o ) "to think or count worthy," is used (1) of the estimation formed by God (a) favorably, 2 Thessalonians 1:11 , "may count (you) worthy (of your calling)," suggestive of grace (it does not Say "may make you worthy"); Hebrews 3:3 , "of more glory," of Christ in comparison with Moses; (b) unfavorably, Hebrews 10:29 , "of how much sorer punishment;" (2) by a centurion (negatively) concerning himself, Luke 7:7 ; (3) by a church, regarding its elders, 1 Timothy 5:17 , where "honor" stands probably for "honorarium," i
Write, Wrote, Written - we should Say "I am writing," taking our point of view from the time at which we are doing it; cp. is undoubtedly a holograph), where again the equivalent English translation is in the present tense (see also Acts 15:23 ; Romans 15:15 ); possibly the Apostle, in Galatians, was referring to his having "written" the body of the Epistle but the former alternative seems the more likely; in 2 Thessalonians 3:17 he Says that the closing salutation is written by his own hand and speaks of it as "the token in every Epistle" which some understand as a purpose for the future rather than a custom; see, however, 1 Corinthians 16:21 ; Colossians 4:18
Miro - The two Spanish sources, Joannes Biclarensis and Isidore, Say that he died before Seville, and describe him as assisting Leovigild in the siege of the town
Nobleman - An ‘ambassage’ of fifty Jews followed Archelaus from Jerusalem to the ‘far country’ in order to protest against his being made king; in other words, they went to Rome to Say, ‘We will not that this man reign over us’ (Luke 19:14)
Unwritten Sayings - UNWRITTEN SayINGS . The name Agrapha or ‘Unwritten Sayings,’ is applied to Sayings ascribed to Jesus which are not found in the true text of the canonical Gospels. That some genuine Sayings of the Lord not recorded by the Evangelists should linger in the oral tradition of the early Church is only what we should expect, but of the extant Agrapha it is only a small number that meet the tests of textual criticism, or satisfy the requirements of moral probability. It is significant of the value of the canonical Gospels as historical records that outside of them there are so few ‘sayings of Jesus’ that could possibly be accepted as conveying a veritable tradition of His actual words. The Unwritten Sayings may be classified as follows: ...
1. To this list must be added the Sayings of Jesus in Mark 16:15-18 and John 8:7 ; John 8:11 , the conclusion of Mk. ]'>[4] gives the striking Saying:...
‘On the same day he saw one working on the Sabbath, and said to him, Man, if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; but if thou knowest not, thou art accursed and a transgressor of the law. In the opinion of some commentators, James 1:12 ‘the crown of life which the Lord promised to them that love him,’ is ‘a semi-quotation of some Saying of Christ’s. 5: ‘Wherefore Peter Says that the Lord said to the apostles, if then any one of Israel wishes to repent and believe on God through my name, his sins shall be forgiven him. After twelve years go forth into the world, lest any one Say, We did not hear. Peter in Gethsemane, adds: ‘For the Saying had also preceded, that no one untempted should attain to the heavenly kingdoms. Special interest attaches to the ‘Sayings of Jesus’ unearthed at Oxyryhnchus by Messrs. The first series of these, published in 1897, contained some Sayings that have Gospel parallels, but the following strike a note of their own:...
‘Jesus saith, Except ye fast to the world, ye shall in no wise find the kingdom of God; and except ye make the sabbath a real sabbath, ye shall not see the Father. ’...
‘Jesus saith, Wherever there are two, they are not without God; and wherever there is one alone, I Say, I am with him. ’...
More recently the same scholars discovered another papyrus with additional ‘Sayings’ of Jesus. A good account of this second series of ‘Sayings’ with the Gr. Here again some of the ‘Sayings’ have Gospel parallels, while others bear a more original character. ’...
Of the value of the Oxyrhynchus ‘Sayings’ very different estimates have been formed
Fasting - But whether the first observance of fasts had their origin in those feelings of nature, I would not presume to Say; yet certain it is, the very mind of man since the fall hath always leaned to somewhat of doing, or suffering, by way of propitiation for the sins and transgressions of nature. (See Matthew 6:16-18) From whence arose the long ritual in the Romish church, and the special season of Ember Weeks, and the Wednesdays and Fridays in every week, and the vigil before every saint's day, and the whole of Lent, it is difficult to Say
Mary Magdalene - "She stood without at the sepulchre weeping," and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulchre, and seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain; they Say cf6 "why weepest thou?"...
She saith, her one absorbing thought being the absence of Him whom she had designed to lavish her reverential love upon, "because they have taken away my Lord (her phrase to the angels, as it was 'the Lord' to her fellow disciples Peter and John), and I (no longer 'we' as in John 20:2) know not where they have laid Him. cf6 "Be not now touching Me" (compare 1 John 1:1), for the time of this permanent "seeing" (John 16:16; John 16:19; John 16:22) and knowing Me after the Spirit, which is to supersede your past "knowledge of Me after the flesh" (2 Corinthians 5:16), is not yet come, cf6 "but go to My brethren and Say, I am ascending (already My ascension has begun) unto My Father and your Father" (Hebrews 2:10-11)
Supremacy - He expands, modifies, or abolishes by His own ‘I Say unto you,’ laws or institutions which were admittedly Divine in their origin (Matthew 5; Matthew 19:3-9; cf. The Christian conscience, however laggard the will, cannot but confess the justice of the Master’s question: ‘Why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I Say?’ (Luke 6:46)
Church, Gallican - ...
The effect of this sanguinary measure (say they) must needs be the general prevalence of infidelity. However unprincipled and cruel the French revolutionists have been, and however much the sufferers, as fellow-creatures, are entitled to our pity; yet, considering the event as the just retribution of God, we are constrained to Say, "Thou art righteous, O Lord, who art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus; for they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy
Hosea - ' Those that had not obtained mercy will obtain mercy; and those that had been declared 'not God's people' would be able to Say, 'Thou art my God. Ephraim will Say, "What have I to do any more with idols?" God's answer, "I have heard him and observed him. " Again Ephraim Says, "I am like a green fir tree;" and the answer is, "From me is thy fruit found
Goodness - To them He was the human expression of the Divine Goodness, and it mattered little whether a man should Say that the Goodness was from eternity, so that by its nature sin had never been a moment’s possibility, or that at birth Christ had been uniquely endowed with a passion for goodness that turned naturally from everything selfish, injurious to others, or sinful either to God or man; or that at His baptism He had been set aside to that brief ministry (which is nearly all men know of His earthly life), when the voice from heaven was heard Saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’ (Matthew 3:17). He also, as his Master, would show the winning charm of the visibly good—the goodness embodied in a life rather than in doctrines only—that which in Christ could Say to the world, ‘I am the bread of life’ (John 6:35; John 6:48), ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life’ (John 14:6), and ‘I am the light of the world’ (John 8:12, John 9:5), the witness of which is described by St. Paul, when he Says that the fruit of the light is in all goodness and righteousness and truth’ (Ephesians 5:9)
Long-Suffering - Trench (Synonyms) Says μακροθυμία is used of persons, and ὑπομονή of things. Perhaps we may more truly Say that patience keeps a man from breaking down in despair, while long-suffering keeps him from breaking out in word or action because of some unsatisfied desire. If ἐπ ̓ αὐτοῖς refers to the elect, we may Say that μακροθυμεῖ here means the vindication of the cause rather than the punishment of the foe
Peniel - " And observe the prophet doth not Say an angel, but the angel, thus particularizing and defining one identical person; and we well know that Christ is often called the "angel of the covenant," (Malachi 3:1; Acts 7:30-31) Indeed the patriarch Jacob himself, in another period of his life, called him by this name. So again the Lord is represented as Saying: "I will rejoice over my people to do them good; and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart, and with my whole soul. Precious Jesus! methinks I would Say for myself and reader, grant many Peniel visits to thy redeemed now, and make all the manifestations of the full GODHEAD in glory to thy redeemed in heaven tenfold more sweet and blessed, by the communications in thee, and through thee, to flow in upon the souls of thy whole church in eternal happiness for ever
Certainty (2) - Luke (Luke 1:4) Says he has ‘traced the course of all things accurately … that thou mightest know the certainty …’ (ἀσφαλεια, cf. Acts 5:23, 1 Thessalonians 5:3); the traitor Says, ‘Take him and lead him away safely’ (Mark 14:44 ἀσφαλῶς, cf. Acts 2:36; Acts 5:23; Acts 16:23); Pilate Says, ‘Command that the sepulchre be made sure’ (Matthew 27:64-66 ἀσφαλίζω, cf. In Luke 23:47 ὀντως occurs, ‘Certainly this was a righteous man’; and in Luke 4:23 ταντως, ‘Doubtless ye will Say to me …’ (cf. This is usually represented by Saying that a person or a thing is ‘known,’ where οἶδα is the verb employed. So the Lord said, ‘Whosoever shall Say unto this mountain … and shall not doubt (διακρίνω) in his heart, but shall believe … he shall have it’ (Mark 11:23 | Matthew 21:21)
Jansenists - It is Semi- pelagianism to Say, that Jesus Christ died, or shed his blood, for all mankind in general. "I do not, " Says he, "readily receive the accusations that Papists or Protestants have objected to them, as over rigorous and fanatic in their devotion; but I will admit many things might be blameable: a tincture of popery might drive them to push monkish austerities too far, and secretly to place some merit in mortification, which they in general disclaimed; yet, with all that can be said, surely the root of the matter was in them. When I read Jansenius, or his disciples Pascal or Quesnel, I bow before such distinguished excellencies, and confess them my brethren; shall I Say my fathers? Their principles are pure and evangelical; their morals formed upon the apostles and prophets; and their zeal to amend and convert, blessed with eminent success
Fellow - Hence Jesus himself, by the spirit of prophecy, under the ministry of a prophet, is introduced as Saying, "Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me, are for signs and wonders in Israel; from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And if I were writing a Concordance for the learned, and not for the poor man, I should Say the original will justify that it should be, non prœ consortibus, sedpropter consortes. ...
And while the Lord Jesus himself bears testimony to the fellowship and equality between himself and his Father, Saying, "I and my Father are one," (John 10:30) none after this would fancy fellow meant neighbour. Neither would such venture to Say, when our Lord quoted the passage of Zechariah, which he did in the hour of his sufferings, (see Zechariah 13:7 compared with Matthew 25:31-32) he meant no more than a mere proverbial expression, and had not the most distinct relation to his sufferings and death
Conflagration - "These," they Say, "succeed each other in nature, as regularly as winter and summer. " ...
Seneca, speaking of the same event, Says expressly, "Tempus advenerit quo sidera sideribus incurrent, et omni flagrante materia uno igne, quicquid nunc ex deposito lucet, ardebit;" that is, "the time will come when the world will be consumed, that it may be again renewed; when the powers of nature will be turned against herself, when stars will rush upon stars, and the whole material world, which now appears resplendent with beauty and harmony, will be destroyed in one general conflagration. The astrologers account for it from a conjunction of all the planets in the sign Cancer; "as the deluge," Say they, "was occasioned by their conjunction in Capricorn
Agrippa - Agrippa, being one day in conversation with Caius, was overheard by one Eutychus, a slave whom Agrippa had emancipated, to Say that he should be glad to see the old emperor take his departure for the other world and leave Caius master of this, without meeting with any obstacle from the emperor's grandson, Tiberius Nero. The rising sun darted his golden beams thereon, and gave it such a lustre as dazzled the eyes of the spectators; and when the king began his speech to the Tyrians and Sidonians, the parasites around him began to Say, it was "the voice of a god and not of man
Nazarene - A recent essay by E. ’ To state the theory more exactly, we should Say that they called Him Jesus the Nçṣer, or the Na(t)zoraean, partly because there was a pre-existing belief that the Messiah would be the Nçṣer, and partly because they vaguely felt what Matthew ventured definitely to express, that His residence from childhood onward in Nazareth had been ordained to fulfil the prophecy, ‘He shall be called Nazoraean (i. Jerome also Says that they believe in Christ as the Son of God, who was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and rose again. Eusebius distinguishes them sharply from Ebionites, but Says that they did not accept the pre-existence of the Logos. If the Nazarenes had so much in common with the Church, it is strange that Jerome should Say that, ‘while they claim to be both Jews and Christians, they are neither. ’ Seeberg Says that the Nazarenes were Jewish Christians, the Ebionites Christian Jews
Victor, Bishop of Capua - The discrepancies between the index and text in F shew that it underwent further changes after assuming a Latin shape but it is impossible to Say how far the differences between it and T proceed from such subsequent alterations or are due to the original adapter. Say c
Baptism - Wall has made it highly probable, to Say the least, from many testimonies of the Jewish writers, who without one dissenting voice allow the fact, that the practice of Jewish baptism obtained before and, at, as well as after, our Saviour's time. Lactantius, who lived in the beginning of the fourth century, Says the devil cannot approach those who have the heavenly mark of the cross upon them as an impregnable fortress to defend them; but he does not Say it was used in baptism. It was to answer for them, Says Mosheim, that sponsors, or godfathers, were first instituted in the second century, though they were afterward admitted also in the baptism of infants. Paul, endeavouring to prove the resurrection of the dead, among several other reasons in support of the doctrine, Says, "If the dead rise not at all, what shall they do who are baptized for the dead?" 1 Corinthians 15:29 . "It means," Say some, "baptized in the room of the dead just fallen in the cause of Christ, and who are thus supported by a succession of new converts, immediately offering themselves to fill up their places, as ranks of soldiers who advance to combat in the room of their companions, who have just been slain in their sight. "It does not appear," Say they, "that the Apostles, in executing the commission of Christ, ever baptized any but those who were first instructed in the Christian faith, and professed their belief of it. Farther, if children are not to be baptized because there is no positive command for it, for the same reason they Say that women should not come to the Lord's Supper; nor ought we to keep holy the first day of the week; neither of these being expressly commanded. From the year 400 to 1150, no society of men, in all that period of seven hundred and fifty years, ever pretended to Say it was unlawful to baptize infants: and still nearer the time of our Saviour there appears to have been scarcely any one who advised the delay of infant baptism. "The catholic church every where declares," Says Chrysostom, in the fifth century, "that infants should be baptized;" and Augustine affirmed, that he never heard or read of any Christian, catholic or sectarian, but who always held that infants were to be baptized. The Apostle, speaking of Christ, Says, he came not, εν , "by water only;" but, εν , "by water and blood. " There the same word, εν , is translated by; and with justice and propriety; for we know no good sense in which we could Say he came in water
Passover - That the Passover was a type of the sacrifice of Christ is clearly shown by Christ himself, where he Says, "With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I Say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God
Osee, Book of - Twice does Our Lord repeat the familiar Saying: "I will have mercy and not sacrifice. " (Matthew 9,12; Osee 6), and in the Gospel of Saint Luke He repeats: "Then shall they begin to Say to the mountains: 'Fall upon us!' and to the hills: 'Cover us!'" (Luke 23; Osee 10; Apocalypse 6)
Fire - When combustion ceases, it loses its redness and extreme heat, and we Say, the fire is extinct
Succoth - The rest of Jacob’s route would be consistent and intelligible, if Mahanaim (his last halting-place before Penuel, Genesis 32:2 ) were (say) at Deir ‘Allâ, 4 miles N
Transfiguration, the - ...
Aside from minor differences in wording, Mark alone states that Jesus' garments became so white that no bleacher could brighten them and that Peter did not know what to Say
Philippians, Epistle to - And we may almost Say that with this letter the church itself passes from our view
False Prophet - The prophet could only Say, wait and see whose prophecy proves true in history (Deuteronomy 18:22 ; 1 Kings 22:28 ; Jeremiah 29:9 )
Fratricelli - ...
Some Say, they even elected a pope of their church; at least they appointed a general with superiors, and built monasteries, &c
Glycerius, Emperor of the West - of the Romans ἐς Σάλωνας , scarcely, however, intending to Say, as Canisius understands him, that Glycerius was made bp
Self-Defence - Some condemn all resistance, whatsoever be the evil offered, or whosoever be the person that offers it; others will not admit that it should pass any farther than bare resistance; others Say, that it must never be carried so far as hazarding the life of the assailant; and others again, who deny it not to be lawful in some cases to kill the aggressor, at the same time affirm it to be a thing more laudable and consonant to the Gospel, to choose rather to lose one's life, in imitation of Christ, than to secure it at the expense of another's in pursuance of the permission of nature. "Notwithstanding, " Says Grove, "the great names which may appear on the side of any of these opinions, I cannot but think self-defence, though it proceeds to the killing of another to save one's self, is in common cases not barely permitted, but enjoined by nature; and that a man would be wanting to the Author of his being, to society, and to himself, to abandon that life with which he is put in trust
Dance - David Says, "All my bones shall Say, Lord, who is like unto Thee?" the very language that the Israelites, while the women danced to the Lord, uttered as their song after the Red Sea deliverance (Exodus 15:11). Maimonides Says that in the joyous Feast of Tabernacles the women danced separately in an apartment above, and the men danced below
Council - Others Say 72, since to the 70, Eldad and Medad are to be added (Numbers 11:26)
