Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1825 edition. Excerpt: ...that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan." Which plainly signifies that the calves at Bethel and at Dan were worshipped as symbols and images of Jehovah the true God; and therefore this is distinguished from the idolatry of Ahab in worshipping Baal, and looked upon as a lesser sin, which otherwise it would not have been.

The like may be said of Micah, who no doubt intended no more, but to worship the God of Israel in his molten image, and that only as the symbol of his presence, Judg. xvii. And those that went a whoring after Gideons Ephod, directed their worship through that to God himself, Judg. viii. 27. And those that worshipped the brazen serpent, intended their worship to that but in a secondary manner, as to an holy relic, which God formerly made use for the healing of the people; and they thought no doubt to honour God in honouring of that, 2 Kings xviii. 4. yet all these are condemned for idolaters.
