The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Christ foretells the destruction of the temple;
3what and how great calamities shall be before it;
29the signs of his coming to judgment.
36And because that day and hour are unknown,
42we ought to watch like good servants, expecting every moment our Master's coming.

One persuaded the people to go up into the temple, which being set on fire by the Romans, 6,000 perished in the flames.

Two
The [ ()] was a hand-mill composed of two stones; "the uppermost of which is turned round by a small handle of wood or iron that is placed in the rim. When this stone is large, or expedition required, a second person is called to assist; and as it is usual for women alone to be concerned in this employment, who seat themselves over against each other with the millstone between then, we may see not only the propriety of the expression, Ex 11:5," but the force of this.--Dr. Shaw.
