Jeremiah 18:14 (King James Version)
Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken?
- John 6:68
- the snow, etc or, my fields for a rock, or for the snow of
- Lebanon? shall the running waters be forsaken for the strange cold waters? Parkhurst renders, "Will the snow of Lebanon fail from the rock of the field? or will the issuing cold flowing waters (from that mountain namely) be exhausted?" (See Targ
- , LXX.,
- and Vulg.) No more could I fail my people if they trusted in me (Compare ch. 2:13 .) Maundrell says, "The chief benefit the mountain of Lebanon serves for, is, that by its exceeding height, it proves a conservatory for abundance of snow, which thawing in the heat of summer, affords supplies of water to the rivers and fountains in the valleys below."
