MHCC 39: Till We Be Discharged

Matthew Henry on Josh 21.1-9:

So, though our heavenly Father's house above be ever so desirable (it is bishop Hall's allusion), yet must we stay on earth till our warfare be accomplished, wait for a due discharge, and not anticipate the time of our removal.

Joseph Hall, Contemplations on the Historical Passages of the Old and New Testaments 9.2, p. 104:

If heaven be never so sweet to us, yet may we not run from this earthly warfare, till our great Captain shall please to discharge us.
