The Hebrews had one general name for treasure, and called it Ozer. The sweetest of all thoughts is that Jesus is the treasure of His people. JEHOVAH promised the church by Moses that he would command the blessing upon Israel in his storehouses, and in all that he would set his hand unto. And when the Holy Ghost explains this to the soul of the redeemed, and he sees that this is emphatically the blessing; then, and not before, he enters into an apprehension of the sense of the covenant promise. Hence, Jesus speaking under the character of Wisdom-Mediator, saith: “That I may cause those that love Me to inherit substance, and I will fill their treasures.” Where Jesus is, there is treasure, yea durable riches and righteousness. But where Jesus is not, nothing, be it what it may, can be called treasure.
