Ezra 2* The numbers that returned. (1-35) The numbers of the priestsand Levites. (36-63) The offerings for the temple. (64-70)1-35 An account was kept of the families that came up out ofcaptivity. See how sin lowers a nation, which righteousnesswould exalt! 36-63 Those who undervalue their relation to the Lord in timesof reproach, persecution, or distress, will have no benefit fromit when it becomes honourable or profitable. Those who have noevidence that they are, by the new birth, spiritual priests untoGod, through Jesus Christ, have no right to the comforts andprivileges of Christians. 64-70 Let none complain of the needful expenses of theirreligion. Seek first the kingdom of God, his favour and hisglory, then will all other things be added unto them. Theirofferings were nothing, compared with the offerings of theprinces in David's time; yet, being according to their ability,were as acceptable to God. The Lord will carry us through allundertakings entered on according to his will, with an aim tohis glory, and dependence on his assistance. Those who, at thecall of the gospel, renounce sin and return to the Lord, shallbe guarded and guided through all perils of the way, and arrivesafely at the mansions provided in the holy city of God.
