In Scripture those expressions are frequently made use of to denote the constraining love of Christ. Thus Christ speaks of his church; (Song of Song of Solomon 1:10; Son 4:9) and again, by way of shewing Christ's property in his church, "I put bracelets upon thine hands, and a chain on thy neck." (Ezekiel 16:11) And Paul, the apostle, delighted to call himself the Lord's prisoner. "For the hope of Israel (said he,) I am bound with this chain." (Acts 28:20) "Be not thou, therefore, ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, of me his prisoner." (2 Timothy 1:8)
