" . . . my servant . . . " (Jeremiah 25:9)

  • The work outlined in these scriptures is the work before us. The terms “My servant,” “Israel,” “the Lord's servant,” mean anyone that the Lord may select and appoint to do a certain work. He makes them ministers of His will, though some who are selected may be as ignorant of His will as was Nebuchadnezzar. (9T 138)

" . . . the beasts of the field . . . "

  • Conquering armies levied particularly the horses and cattle of the conquered peoples, thus aggravating the distress and despair of the vanquished. (4BC 453)
