Mr. Hanway, speaking of a Persian supper, says, "Supper being now brought in, a servant presented a basin of water, and a napkin hung over his shoulders; he went to every one in the company, and poured water on their hands to wash." * Ge 18:4 Jos 1:1 1Ki 19:21 Lu 22:26,27 Joh 13:4,5,13,14 * 1Ti 5:10 Php 2:22 VERSE 12 - The word. * 2Ki 2:14,15,21,24 1Sa 3:19-21 - Israel. * 2Ki 2:25; 5:8,9,15 Isa 49:23; 60:14 Re 3:9 VERSE 13 - What. * Eze 14:3-5 Mt 8:29 Joh 2:4 2Co 5:16; 6:15 - get. * Jud 10:14 Ru 1:15 Pr 1:28 Jer 2:27,28 - the prophets. * 1Ki 18:19; 22:6,10,11,22-25 - Nay.

This was frequent among the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Scythians, Gauls, Africans, and others; and was the natural fruit of a religious system, which had for the objects of its worship cruel and merciless divinities. The king of Moab, in this case, sacrificed his son to obtain the favor of Chemosh his god, who, being a devil, delighted in blood and murder, and the destruction of mankind. The dearer any thing was to them, the more acceptable those idolaters thought the sacrifice, and therefore burnt their children in the fire to their honor. * Ge 22:2,13 De 12:31 Jud 11:31,39 Ps 106:37,38 Eze 16:20 * Mic 6:7 - they departed. * 1Sa 14:36-46 1Ki 20:13,28,43 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
