Excerpt

Ib.

(e.) "They are used accordingly in all such cases for the purpose of illustration, and their explication is accomplished, not by assigning to them some new and extraordinary meaning, but simply by conjoining with them the terms of a comparison which expresses the relation in which they are employed."--Ib.

(f.) "It is in metaphors and personification only that acts and qualities are ascribed to agents and objects that are incompatible with their nature; or do not properly belong to them."--Ib. Theo. & Lit. Jour., vol. 1, p. 354.

26. A SIMILE, or comparison, is an affirmation that one agent, object, or act, is like, or as, another,--there being a real or imaginary resemblance. Sometimes only the mere fact of a resemblance is affirmed. At others, the nature of the resemblance is indicated.

Examples.--"As for man, his days are as grass." Psa. 103:15. "Whose garment was white as snow." Dan.

****.

It is a good historical interpretation of the Book of Revelation.

***..

Modern day prophecy buffs will find this book interesting. Originally written in 1853 it gives an interesting perspective on the book of Revelation from that more Biblically literate era. The author explains his hermaneutic principles at the beginning and then begins his commentary. It is written from the continuous-historical perspective, that is, that the book of Revelation describes all of church history up until the final consummation. The author relates various historical events he believes have occured in fulfilment of prophecy as of his writing and then speaks of what was yet (at that time) to come.
