Simple. . .That is, innocent, sincere, and without guile. 1 1 1 0 0 1:4 And made a feast by houses: That is, each made a feast in his own house and had his day, inviting the others, and their sisters. 1 4 1 0 0 1:5 Blessed: For greater horror of the very thought of blasphemy, the scripture both here and ver. 11, and in the following chapter, ver. 5 and 9, uses the word bless to signify its contrary. 1 5 1 0 0 1:6 The sons of God: The angels.--Ibid. Satan also, etc. This passage represents to us in a figure, accommodated to the ways and understandings of men,
  1. The restless endeavours of Satan against the servants of God;
  2. That he can do nothing without God's permission;
  3. That God doth not permit him to tempt them above their strength: but assists them by his divine grace in such manner, that the vain efforts of the enemy only serve to illustrate their virtue and increase their merit.
