Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
This is a well known name in common life. It is very highly endeared to our affection when applied by Jesus himself to his church. If the reader wishes to see some beautiful instances, in which the whole church as one collective body is called the Lamb's wife, I refer him to the Songs of Solomon, and to the book of the Revelation at large. (Revelation 21:2-9; John 3:29; Isaiah 62:3-5)
