And Joseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation.
— God deprives the Church of her comfort and stay —
1. That she may gain the power of self-reliance.
2. That she may show her ability to be independent of all human instrumentalities.
3. That she may move into the exigencies of the future.
(J. S. Exell, M. A.)
