Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Job 26:13 (a) This word is used to describe the beautiful and artistic decorations of the heavens in the arrangement of the stars, constellations, sun and moon.
Matthew 12:44 (b) This type describes the professing Christian who "goes forward," joins the church, but who does not know the Saviour personally. He gets rid of the evil things in his life and takes on some of the lovely things of the church. He becomes an usher or he sings in the choir. He participates in the activities and gives of his money. As he puts on all these things, the Saviour calls it garnish. The evil spirit comes back to such a man because he is empty - CHRIST has not entered; the Holy Spirit has not come into his life. (See also Luke 11:25).
Matthew 23:29 (b) This is a description of the flowery words used by the Pharisees to describe the virtues of the dead prophets while they themselves rejected the teachings of those same prophets.
