Preface - The Ephraimites are offended with Gideon: he pacifieth them. The men of Succoth and Penuel insolently
refuse relief to Gideon's army. Zebab and Zalmunna are taken prisoners. Succoth and Penuel are chastised.
Gideon revengeth the death of his brethren on Zebab and Zalmunna. He refuseth the government which the people
offer him, but asketh for the earrings of their prey, whereof he maketh an ephod: which becometh a cause of idolatry.
Midian is totally subdued. Gideon's children. His death, and the subsequent idolatry and ingratitude of the Israelites.
Preface-King Herod persecuteth the Christians, killeth James, and imprisoneth Peter, who upon the prayers of the
church is delivered by an angel. Herod, in his pride assuming the glory due to God, is smitten by an angel,
and dieth miserably. After his death the word of God prospereth. Barnabas and Saul return to Antioch.

Q27-Wherein consists Christ's exaltation?
A- Christ's exaltation consists in his rising again from the dead on the third day, in ascending up into heaven, in sitting
at the right hand of God the Father, and in coming to judge the world at the last day.

The body of 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 v 25
In ancient times, some of the tyrants used to chain their prisoners to a dead body; so that, wherever the prisoner wandered, he had to drag a putrid carcass after him. It is believed that Paul here alludes to this inhuman practice. His old man he
felt a noisome, putrid carcass, which he was continually dragging about with him. His piercing desire is to be freed
from it. Who shall deliver us? You remember once, when God allowed a thorn in the flesh to torment His
servant, - a messenger of Satan to buffet him, - Paul was driven to his knees. 'I besought the Lord thrice, that it might
depart from me.' Oh, this is the true make of God's children! The world has an old nature; they are all old men together.
But it does not drive them to their knees. How is it with you, dear souls? Does corruption felt within drive you to the throne
of grace? Does it make you call on the name of the Lord? Does it make you like the man coming at midnight for three
loaves? Does it make you like the Canaanitish woman, crying after Jesus? Ah, remember, if lust can work in your heart,
and you lie down contented with it, you are none of Christ's!
