Preface - The children of Israel assemble at Mizpeh, before whom the Levite declareth his wrong. The resolution of the assembly to punish the Gibeathites. The Benjamites, being required to deliver up the offenders, instead of complying gather themselves together against the other tribes. By the direction of God Judah goeth up first against them; but the Israelites are repulsed with great loss. They renew the fight the second day, and are again defeated with a great slaughter. They seek to God with fasting and sacrifices, and are promised success. They make use of a stratagem, and destroy all the Banjamites, with all that belonged to them, except six hundred men, who flee to the rock Rimmon.
Preface - Paul is accused before Felix by Tertullus in the name of the Jews: he answereth in defence of his life and doctrine. The hearing is deferred. Paul preaching freely before the governor and his wife, Felix trembleth. Felix hopeth for a bribe to release Paul, but in vain; and going out of his office leaveth him bound.

Confidence in God
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. - Romans 8 v 37
The world often comes against us like armed men; but, if God be for us, who can be against us.' The people shall be like bread.' It is as easy to overcome all opposition when God is with us, as for a hungry man to eat bread. It was God that girded Cyrus, though he did not know whim. So he does still: worldly men are a rod in God's hand. God puts it this way or that way, to fulfil all His pleasure; and when He has done with it, He will break it in pieces, and cast it into the fire. 'So fear not them that kill the body, and after that, have no more that they can do.' Oh! if you would live by faith, you might live a happy life!
