1 Chronicles 3-4
Preface - The service and sacrifices of the first tabernacle were far less perfect and efficacious to purge the conscience than the blood of Christ. The necessity of Christ's death for the confirmation of the new covenant: and of better sacrifices than those legal ones to purify the heavenly things. Christ was offered once for all.

Thou art my help and my deliverer;
make no tarrying, O my God.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. - In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. - Who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the LORD thy maker?
I am with thee to deliver thee. - Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. - Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.

How wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
For Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest.
The priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.
We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
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. - When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers,, they shall not overflow thee.
Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Jer. 12.5; Jos. 3.15
Ps. 23.4; Isa. 43.2

Chapter 3 - Paragraph 1
God hath decreed in himself, from all eternity, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely and unchangeably, all things, whatsoever comes to pass; 1) God yet so as thereby is God neither the author of sin nor hath fellowship with any therein; 2) God nor is violence offered to the will of the creature, nor yet is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established; 3) God in which appears His wisdom in disposing all things, and power and faithfulness in accomplishing His decree. 4)

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin - Romans 7 vs 24-25
There is nobody in this world so happy as a believer. He has come to Jesus, and found rest. He has the pardon of all his sins in Christ. He has near approach to God as a child. He has the Holy Spirit dwelling in Him. He has the hope of glory. In the most awful times he can be calm, for he feels that God is with him. Still there are times when he cries, O wretched man! When he feels the plague of his own heart - when he feels the thorn in the flesh - when his wicked heart is discovered in all its fearful malignity. Ah, then he lies down, crying, O wretched man that I am! One reason of this wretchedness is, that sin, discovered in the heart, takes away the sense of forgiveness. Guilt comes upon the conscience, and a dark cloud covers the soul. How can I ever go back to Christ? he cries. Alas! I have sinned away my Saviour. Another reason is, the loathsomeness of sin. It is felt like a viper in the heart. A natural man is often miserable from his sin, but he never feels its loathsomeness; but to the new creature it is vile indeed. Ah! brethren, do you know anything of a believer's wretchedness? If you do not, you will never know his joy. If you know not a believer's tears and groans, you will never know his song of victory.
