1 Kings 6:7 (c) By this figure the Lord is informing us that the house of GOD is to be a divine institution, built in the quiet of His presence, and because of the still small voice teaching us. There is to be no dissension nor quarreling in regard to it. The Lord Himself makes each living stone a part of the building, and then He brings us together to form the local church made up of sinners already saved by grace. GOD's church is not a product of man's ideas.

Jeremiah 23:29 (a) The Word of GOD is thus represented. There are many kinds of hammers such as the hammer of the blacksmith, the goldsmith, the carpenter, the stone mason, et cetera. Some are for heavy, rough work, others are for fine delicate work; so the Scriptures are used for every kind of need or purpose in life.

Jeremiah 50:23 (a) This type is used to describe Babylon. GOD picked out the armies of Babylon to punish and to destroy the nations of the earth. He used Babylon to whip Israel and Judah. GOD has a perfect right to choose anyone He pleases, saved or unsaved, to carry out His purposes and His plans.
