Preface - The priests, and the Levites, which came up with Zerubbabel. The succession of high priests. Certain chief Levites in the days of Nehemiah and Ezra. The solemnity of the dedication of the wall. The offices of the priests and Levites appointed in the temple.
Preface - Paul declareth at large the manner of his conversion and call to the apostleship. At the very mentioning of the Gentiles the people exclaim furiously against him: whereupon the chief captain ordereth to examine him by scourging: which he avoideth by pleading the privilege of a Roman citizen. He is brought before the Jewish council.
Daily Light - Morning
This God is our God for ever and ever:
he will be our guide even unto death.
O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. - The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. - Our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. - The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
Ps. 48.14; Isa. 25.1; Ps. 16.5

Daily Light - Evening
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me. - Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee.
I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. - If any of you lack wisdom, let himask of God...and it shall be given him.
Who is sufficient for these things? - I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing. - My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee... Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness...when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Good Works
Yet notwithstanding the persons of believers being accepted through Christ, their good works also are accepted in him;17 not as though they were in this life wholly unblamable and unreprovable in God’s sight, but that he, looking upon them in his Son, is pleased to accept and reward that which is sincere, although accompanied with many weaknesses and imperfections.18
17 Eph. 1:5; 1 Pet. 1:5
18 Matt. 25:21,23; Heb. 6:10

The true smitten rock
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. - John 7 v 37
The feast of the tabernacles was intended to be a picture of the time when the fathers of the Jewish nation lived in tents in the wilderness. It was intended to remind them that they too were strangers and pilgrims in the wilderness, and that they were journeying to a better land. But there was one thing in the wilderness which they had not resemblance of in the feast of tabernacles - the smitten rock which gave out rivers of water. In order to make up for this deficiency, it is said that on the last day of the feast of the Jews used to draw water in a golden pitcher from the Fountain of Siloam, and pour it out upon the morning sacrifice, as it lay upon the altar. They did this great rejoicing, having palm branches in their hands, and singing the twelfth chapters of Isaiah. Now it was on this very day, perhaps at that very time, that Jesus stood up in the midst of them, and, as if he wished to show them that he was the true smitten rock, cried: 'If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink.'
