Explanation of Numbers 28      

Por Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-8. Revelation and thence perception concerning the worship of the Lord generally through the reception of innocence from Him in every state of brightness and in every state of obscurity throughout the course of regeneration.

Verses 9-10. Concerning this worship from a state of love and charity, in addition to the general state.

Verses 11-15. Also concerning worship from a state of faith conjoined with charity which is in greater fullness, and is yet implied and involved in the general state.

Verses 16-25. The first general state of the regeneration of man and worship therein is described, it being also involved in the most general state, and having reference to his deliverance from evil by the work of redemption through the assumption of the Human by the Lord.

Verses 26-31. Concerning the second general state of the regeneration of man, which is that of the implantation of truth in good, and his worship of the Lord in that state, which is also involved in the most general state.
