* It shall.
That is, as long as the sun and moon shall endure, as long as
time shall last, his kingdom shall continue among men. The
moon is probably termed a faithful witness, because by her,
particularly, time is measured. Her decrease and increase are
especially observed by every nation; and by these time is
generally estimated, especially among eastern nations:--So
many moons is a man old--so many moons since such an event
happened; and even their years are reckoned by lunations. Or,
the rainbow may be intended; that faithful sign which God has
established in the clouds, that the earth shall no more be
destroyed by water.
