Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
After what hath been said under the foregoing article of faith, I shall not think it necessary to add much on the subject of faithfulness. The sense of it is very obvious. I only beg to observe, that it appears from Scripture the Lord delights to be known to his people, in his covenant engagements, by this distinguishing perfection. That sweet passage delivered to the church by Moses, is a most decided proof of it: "Know, therefore, that the Lord thy God, he is God; the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with the that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations." Deuteronomy 6:9. See also 1 Samuel 2:34; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:24; Revelation 1:5; Rev 19:11
