CCLXXXVII. With Golden Girdle Girt.

REV. I. 13. “He was girt about the paps with a golden girdle.”
I. WHAT did this golden girdle signify?
1. The Lord’s excellence in all His offices.
2. His power and authority.
3. His activity. The Hebrews wore a girdle when en-
gaged in some labour.
4. The girdle was the place where the Eastern kept his
money. Jesus bears with Him all that His people can
need.
II. The golden lessons to be gathered from these four
meanings:
1. Admire Him in all His offices.
2. Trust Him.
3. Imitate Him.
4. Let us rejoice in Him.
C. H. Spurgeon
