The word is used with reference to God's revelation of himself in the way
of promise or of favour to men. Thus God's promise to Noah after the Flood
is called a covenant (Genesis 9; Jeremiah 33:20, "my covenant"). God's
covenant consists wholly in the bestowal of blessing -Isaiah 59:21; Jeremiah
31:33,34. God is a good God.
-conversation: In the
New Testament means 'conduct' except in Philippians 3:20 where the original
is 'commonwealth of citizens'. In the Old Testament, it means 'manner',
'moral character', 'road', 'pathway'.
This was regarded as the most horrible form of death, and to a Jew it would
acquire greater horror from the curse in Deuteronomy 21:23.

This punishment began by subjecting
the sufferer to scourging. In the case of our Lord, however, his scourging
was rather before the sentence was passed upon him and was inflicted by
Pilate for the purpose, probably, of exciting pity and procuring his escape
from further punishment -Luke 23:22; John 19:1.
The condemned one carried his own
cross to the place of execution, which was outside the city, in some conspicuous
place set apart for the purpose. Before the nailing to the cross took place,
a medicated cup of vinegar mixed with gall and myrrh (the sopor) was given,
for the purpose of deadening the pangs of the sufferer. Our Lord refused
this cup -Matthew. 27:34. The sponge full of vinegar, sour wine, posca,
the common drink of the Roman soldiers, which was put on a hyssop stalk
and offered to our Lord in contemptuous pity (Matthew. 27:48; Luke 23:36),
he tasted to allay the agonies of his thirst -John 19:29,30. The accounts
given of the crucifixion of our Lord are in entire agreement with the customs
and practices of the Roman in such cases. He was crucified
between two "malefactors" and was watched by a party of four soldiers
(John 19:23; Matthew 27:36,54), with their centurion. The "breaking of
the legs" of the malefactors was intended to hasten death, and put them
out of misery (John 19:31); but the unusual rapidity of our Lord's death
(John 19:33) was due to his previous sufferings and his great mental anguish.
He literally died of a broken heart, alone, God having taken the Holy Spirit
from Him (Mark 15:34) in order that He be
made guilty (2Corinthians 5:21),
in order that He be made a curse (Galatians 3:13) for all those who couldn't
keep the Mosaic Law perfectly (everybody) and who would need to live by
His faith.-Galatians 2:20.
A flowing of blood and water poured
from the wound made by the soldier's spear -John 19:34. Our Lord uttered
seven memorable words from the cross, namely, (1) Luke 23:34; (2) 23:43;
(3) John 19:25,26; (4) Matthew. 27:46; (5) John 19:28; (6) 19:30; (7) Luke
