Tuis volume concludes my Commentary on the New Testament. I need not attempt an explanation of the Apocalypse, inasmuch as that labor has been so thoroughly and judiciously performed by the late Rev. THOMAS WHITTEMORE, D.D. Rather let me reiterate my desire, expressed to that author in his lifetime (“Trumpet," vol. xxiv. p. 82), namely, that my Commentary and his may be regarded as
one continuous work; so that, as we have labored side by side through the greater part of life, these volumes may also stand together as a memorial of the friendship which has uniformly existed between us.”
Profoundly conscious of my obligations to God, for prolonging my life, and granting me strength to finish the work, commenced so long ago, and prosecuted under so many difficulties, – grateful, also, for the encouragement constantly received from my brethren and friends, many of whom.“ are fallen asleep,” but some “remain unto this present,”-I commend this completed Commentary, the principal labor of my life, to the favorable regard of all who “trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe."
LUCIUS R. PAIGE. CAMBRIDGE, NOVEMBER, 1869.
