    of piety, Deut. 31:16, 17; as a peni-
    tent [repentant], his sins
    , Isa. 55:7.   Dark dispensa-
    tions of Providence seem to indicate
    that God is forsaking His people, even
    as the Saviour seemed to fear when He
    cried on the cross
    , Matt. 27:46; but

    Job 38:4; Heb. 1:4: the commence-
    ment, as of a nation or kingdom, Exod.
    9:18.   Jesus Christ, in the perfection of
    His work of redemption, as the Mediator
    between God and men, is the only foun-
    dation for the hopes of a sinner
    ; and He
    is so called in various parts of the Scrip-
    tures, Isa. 28:16; 1 Cor. 3:11.   The [local]
    church is said to be "built upon the
    foundation of the apostles and prophets,
    Jesus Christ himself being the chief
    corner stone[,]"
    Eph. 2:20, as the pro-
    phets and apostles were the only inspired
    teachers to deliver the gospel to man-
    kind
    ; while Christ is the chief subject
    of all divine revelation, and He sus-
    tains and unites the whole church in

    God is "the fountain of living waters,"
    as He is the source of our being and of
    all our blessings
    , Jer. 2:13.   Christ's
    blood is the "fountain opened for sin
    and uncleanness,"
    as its sacrificial virtue,
    being infinite, cleanses from all sin
    , Zech.
    13:1; 1 John 1:7.

    6; Luke 19:8.

    7:7; Luke 2:37.
  121. FOWL, birds, winged animals, Gen. 1:
    26; 7:3.   Divine wisdom and goodness
    are wonderfully evident in the adapta-
    tion of fowls to their peculiar modes of
    life.   Those which fly have large wings;
    while such as wade in mud have long
    legs, bare of feathers; and ducks, and
    such as swim, have webbed feet.   Such
    as live on prey have crooked bills to tear
    flesh; and those which pierce trees for
    insects have them strong and sharp;
    while those which grope in the mud
    have flat bills, with nerves reaching to
    the extremities, possessing the quickest
    sense of feeling.   Moses was directed, in
    his inspired laws, to prohibit the use of
    various fowls as unclean, and unfit for
    food to the Israelites, Lev. 11:13-20;
    Deut. 14:11-20.
  122. FOWLER, a catcher of birds by means
    of nets and snares, Prov. 6:5.   Satan,
    the tempter of men, is represented as a
    fowler, on account of his snares
    , Psal.
    91:3; 124:7.
  123. FOX or JACKAL, an animal remarkable
    for its cunning, Neh. 4:3; Matt. 8:20:
    a crafty hypocrite, as our Saviour cha-
    racterised king Herod, Luke 13:32.
    Palestine swarmed with these animals,
    Sol. Song 2:15, so that without miracle
    or difficulty Samson might easily, in a
    short time, have obtained three hundred
    of them, as recorded in Judg. 15:4.
  124. FRAGMENTS, broken pieces, Matt. 14:

    vision, beheld the frame of a city, Ezek.
    40:2: the human body, Psal. 103:14.
  127. FRAME, to form, as the mouth to speak
    correctly, Judg. 12:6; or the life in holi-
    ness, according to the will of God, Hos.
    5:4: to contrive, as calamity, in punish-
    ment for sin
    , Jer. 18:11: to speak or
    practise, as evil, Psal. 50:19; 94:20.
  128. FRAMED, formed, Isa. 29:16: cre-
    ated and arranged, Heb. 11:3: appointed
    and placed as the several members of
    the [local] church of Christ, Eph. 2:21.
  129. FRANKINCENSE, an aromatic resin or
    gum, distilled from a tree growing in
    Arabia and Syria: it was used in the
    sacred incense, Exod. 30:34; in various
    offerings, Lev. 2:1, 2, 15, 16; and rich
    perfumes, Matt. 2:11.   Frankincense is
    still used on the altars of both pagan
    and popish priests, Rev. 18:13; and
    an inferior kind of it is obtained at pre-
    sent from the East Indies.
  130. FRANKLY, freely, kindly, Luke 7:42.
  131. FRAUD, deceit or dishonest artifice,
