"Valuation of what is thus known belongs to the keeping of this word. It is to be kept as a treasure. 2 Tim. 1. 14, ---that excellent "depositum" (that is, the word of the gospel), ---"keep it," saith the apostle, "by the Holy Ghost," and, "Hold fast the faithful word," Tit. i. 9. It is a good treasure, a faithful word; hold it fast. It is a word that comprises the whole interest of Christ in the world. The value that as our chiefest treasure is to keep the word of Christ's patience. They that will have a regard from Christ in the time of temptation are not to be regardless of his concernments."
