Verse 18. And ye shall be to me for sons and for daughters, saith the Lord Almighty - The promise made to Solomon, 1Chr xxviii, 6, is here applied to all believers; as the promise made particularly to Josh. is applied to them, Heb. xiii, 5. Who can express the worth, who can conceive the dignity, of this divine adoption? Yet it belongs to all who believe the gospel, who have faith in Christ.

To him they may fly for aid in every difficulty, and from him obtain a supply in all their wants. Isaiah xliii, 6.
