Preface - The people bewail the desolation of Benjamin, and seek to repair it. By the destruction of Jabesh-gilead they provide wives for four hundred of those who had taken shelter in the rock. The elders consult how to find wives for the remainder consistently with an oath that had been taken, and advise the Benjamites to carry off by surprise the virgins that danced at Shiloh.
Preface - The Jews accuse Paul to Festus, first at Jerusalem,, and afterward at Caesarea: he answereth for himself, and appealeth to Caesar: his appeal is admitted. Festus being visited by king Agrippa openeth the matter to him, who desireth to hear Paul. Paul is brought forth; Festus declareth he found nothing in him worthy of death.

Submit yourselves therefore to God, Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. - James 4 v 7
Resignation is a very sweet grace: it can only be cultivated here. The believer has two kinds of graces - he has purity and resignation; God has purity, but God can have no resignation, for He has all sovereignty, He is almighty. Yet resignation to God's will is a very sweet grace; it is a flower that grows on the earth - it will not bloom yonder. It is much easier to go about a whole lifetime preaching, to preach night and day, than to be patient under sickness. There are many saints who suffered much upon earth, now shining the brightest in glory, just because they glorified God more than others by their patient submission.
