2 Chronicles 3:9 (c) The fact that the weight of the nails is given may be taken as a picture of the value GOD puts on unseen acts and deeds. He knows that which is done in obscurity, privately and without publicity. He weighs our words and deeds as they are used for His glory.
Ezra 9:8 (b) This represents the fixed and permanent position of the people of Israel when GOD returns them to their own land.
Ecclesiastes 12:11 (a) Wise words fasten themselves in the heart and the mind. They remain there for a blessing in days to come.
Isaiah 22:23 (a) By this picture we see the permanent and secure position of CHRIST, the Messiah, as He sits on the throne of His kingdom. Temporarily the nail and the place have been removed, but He is still Lord, and will resume His position as the King of Israel in the day of His power.
Zechariah 10:4 (b) This figure indicates that it is GOD Himself who has made CHRIST to be King and Sovereign. He establishes both Israel and the Church under His permanent and eventual rule.
Colossians 2:14 (a) We have revealed to us in this picture the act of GOD in putting our sins on JESUS, so that He bore them "in His own body on the tree."
