THE ROBE OF THE EPHOD ALL OF BLUE
"And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue. And there shall be a hole inthe top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent''.— Exodus 28: 31-32.
It is recorded of McCheyne that his very manner of reading the Bible at hisfamily devotions reminded you of a man "poring into the sand for pieces of fine gold, and from time to time holding up to you what he so delighted tohave found". "One gem", he would say, "out of that ocean is worth all thepebbles from earthly streams". This is the true way of reading the Holy Scriptures. As God's own children, we cannot but value the Word of ourHeavenly Father; but at what little pains are we to study that Word as a whole, to search out its "deep things". Yet, "Every word of God is pure".All, like the sanctuary lamb-stand, is of pure gold: shaft, branches, bowls,knops, flowers—all is most precious.
