After the exceedingly great and precious promises
of gospel grace, typified by temporal deliverances, which we had in
the foregoing chapter, we have here, I. A solemn charge given to us
all to make conscience of our duty, as we hope to have the benefit
of those promises, ver. 1,
2. II. Great encouragement given to strangers that were
willing to come under the bonds of the covenant, assuring them of
the blessings of the covenant, ver.
3-8. III. A high charge drawn up against the watchmen of
Israel, that were careless and unfaithful in the discharge of their
duty (ver. 9-12), which
seems to be the beginning of a new sermon, by way of reproof and
threatening, which is continued in the following chapters. And the
word of God was intended for conviction, as well as for comfort and
instruction in righteousness.
