Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
The wedding garment of Scripture, particularly spoken of, (Matthew 22:11) hath been a subject of so much anxiety to many precious souls, that the matter itself ought to be put in the clearest light possible. The general belief is, that by it is meant Christ's person, work, and righteousness. And hence the church is represented as singing, "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord: my soul shall be joyful it my God, for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels." (Isaiah 61:10) And this corresponds to what the Lord Jesus counselled the church of Laodicea to buy of him "white raiment, that she might be clothed." (Revelation 3:18) Hence, therefore, what is the garment, but Christ's righteousness, in which all the faithful are clothed, when justified in the perfect salvation of the Lord?
