    VERSE 19 
     - but.
      From the preceding verses in this chapter let us learn, 1.
      That God, in his providence, sets up one and pulls down
      another, as he pleases.  2.  That this world is full of wars
      and fightings, which result from the indulgence of the lusts
      of men.  3.  That all the changes and revolutions of states
      were plainly and perfectly foreseen by the God of heaven.  4.
      That no word of God can fall to the ground, but what he has
      declared shall infallibly come to pass.  For the elucidation
      of the historical parts of Scripture, it is advantageous to
      notice the writings of heathen authors:  light is thus thrown
      on many passages of Holy Writ, by shewing the accomplishment
      of the prophecies therein contained, or customs elucidated,
      which, in the course of years, or in our more northern
      latitude, would be to us inexplicable.  We have therefore
      reason to bless God for human learning, by which many have
      done great service to the readers of His blessed word.

      The preceding verses (from ver. 31) relate to the Romans, who
      not only destroyed the city and temple of Jerusalem, and
      crucified the Messiah, but during almost 300 years sought by
      every means to extirpate Christianity.  The conversion of
      Constantine, though it stopped the rage of persecution, gave
      but little help to true religion.  The power first exercised
      by the emperors, in calling and influencing ecclesiastical
      councils, gradually passed into the hands of the clergy; and
      the bishop and church of Rome at last carried it to an
      enormous length, magnifying themselves above every god.
