Bible Notes

"He that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger" (Job 17:9)—Moffatt paraphrases the passage as follows: "A stainless soul grows ever stronger."

"The Lord's day" (Rev. 1:10)—It may be noted that "this is the first place in Christian literature where 'the Lord's day' is mentioned" (R. H. Charles: Book of Revelation, I, P. 22), and it is generally conceded that the phrase was used by the Christians then, as now, to signify "Sunday"—the first day of the week. It was called "the Lord's day" because on that day "the Lord," Christ Jesus, proved the unreality of death, and it had been set apart by common consent as a day of rest and worship in commemoration of the resurrection.

"I am Alpha and Omega" (Rev. 1:11)—As is well known, "Alpha" (A) and "Omega" (Q) are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet—the "beginning and the end" (cf. Rev. 22:13).
