A French pear is called, “Le bon Chrétien,” because it is never rotten at the core – like the good Christian.

SO, WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY SIN? Verse 17, “Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Purge … hyssop–The use of this plant in the ritual (Exodus 12:22; Numbers 19:6, 18) suggests the idea of atonement as prominent here; “purge”refers to vicarious satisfaction (Numbers 19:17-20).

Purge me with hyssop: “thou shalt make a sin-offering for me;” probably alluding to the cleansing of the leper: Leviticus 14:1, etc.

CONCLUDED TOMORROW!
