    It is difficult to get something out of this part; but I think of Moab as of our distant relatives in Christ, as Lot was to Abraham. We live in Countries, and have some family roots, that were at one time in ages past, of our family in Christ; but have over the times dried up and withered spiritually, and have become completely integrated into the world, and are now enemies because of Jesus in us.
