The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary

This word is so often used in the word of God, that I do not think it unimportant to have a place in our Concordance. Sometimes, it is intended as a note of attention, by way of calling the notice of the reader in a more striking manner; and yet more eminently so, when the Lord himself is the speaker. Thus for example, the Lord JEHOVAH calls upon the church to regard with all possible attention, the person and character of his dear Son. "Behold, (saith JEHOVAH) my servant whom I uphold," etc. (Isaiah 42:1; Zechariah 3:8; Malachi 3:1) Sometimes, the word is used as a note of admiration, as when Jesus speaks of the loveliness of his church, (Song of Song of Solomon 1:15) or when the angels announced the birth of Christ. (Isaiah 7:14) It is sometimes used to express joy and gladness, as when Jesus calls upon his church to behold him, "Behold me! behold me!" (Isaiah 65:1; Matthew 21:5; John 12:15) And sometimes the word is used by way of confirmation to the word spoken. Thus the Lord to Jacob at Bethel, "Behold, I am with thee, and I will keep thee," etc. (Genesis 28:15)
