In the first half of Psalm 103:4, God redeems us. Then, with only the separation of the pause of a comma, in the second half of the same verse, He crowns us. In other words,
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11) What
“Warm, hot, and hence the south; also an Egyptian word meaning” “black, the youngest son of Noah (Gen. 5:32; comp. 9:22, 24).” “The curse pronounced by Noah against Ham, properly against” “Canaan his fourth son, was accomplished when the Jews” subsequently exterminated the Canaanites. “One of the most important facts recorded in Gen. 10 is the foundation of the earliest monarchy in Babylonia by Nimrod the “grandson of Ham (6, 8, 10). The primitive Babylonian empire was” “thus Hamitic, and of a cognate race with the primitive” inhabitants of Arabia and of Ethiopia. (See ACCAD.) “The race of Ham were the most energetic of all the descendants of Noah in the early times of the post-diluvian world.

He or his parents were brought to Persia as captives taken in war. He was hanged on the gallows which he had erected for Mordecai the Jew (Esther 7:10). (See ESTHER.)

It was among the conquests of the “Pharaoh Thothmes III. Its king, Tou or Toi, made alliance with” “David (2 Sam. 8:10), and in B.C. 740 Azariah formed a league” “with it against Assyria. It was, however, conquered by the” “Assyrians, and its nineteen districts placed under Assyrian” “governors. In B.C. 720 it revolted under a certain Yahu-bihdi,” “whose name, compounded with that of the God of Israel (Yahu),” perhaps shows that he was of Jewish origin. But the revolt was “suppressed, and the people of Hamath were transported to Samaria” “(2 Kings 17:24, 30), where they continued to worship their god” “Ashima. Hamah is beautifully situated on the Orontes, 32 miles” “north of Emesa, and 36 south of the ruins of Assamea.” “The kingdom of Hamath comprehended the great plain lying on both banks of the Orontes from the fountain near Riblah to Assamea on “the north, and from Lebanon on the west to the desert on the” “east. The “entrance of Hamath” (Num. 34:8), which was the north” “boundary of Palestine, led from the west between the north end” of Lebanon and the Nusairiyeh mountains.
“Warm springs, one of the “fenced cities” of Naphtali (Josh.” 19:35). It is identified with the warm baths (the heat of the water ranging from 136 degrees to 144 degrees) still found on the shore a little to the south of Tiberias under the name of “Hummam Tabariyeh (“Bath of Tiberias”).”
“The king’s, the father of Jerahmeel, mentioned in Jer. 36:26.” “Some take this word as a common noun, “the king”, and understand” “that Jerahmeel was Jehoiakim’s son. Probably, however, it is to” be taken as a proper name.
“(1.) Heb. pattish, used by gold-beaters (Isa. 41:7) and by” quarry-men (Jer. 23:29). Metaphorically of Babylon (Jer. 50:23) or Nebuchadnezzar. “(2.) Heb. makabah, a stone-cutter’s mallet (1 Kings 6:7), or of any workman (Judg. 4:21; Isa. 44:12). “(3.)

Heb. mappets, rendered “battle-axe” in Jer. 51:20. This was “properly a “mace,” which is thus described by Rawlinson: “The” “Assyrian mace was a short, thin weapon, and must either have” been made of a very tough wood or (and this is more probable) of “metal. It had an ornamented head, which was sometimes very” “beautifully modelled, and generally a strap or string at the” “lower end by which it could be grasped with greater firmness.”
“He-ass, a Hivite from whom Jacob purchased the plot of ground in” which Joseph was afterwards buried (Gen. 33:19). He is called Emmor in Acts 7:16.

Hamor and” Shechem were also slain (ver. 26).
