[b]Then she pounded the tent peg through his head![/b](Thomas Watson, "The Doctrine of Repentance")"The deceitfulness of sin." Hebrews 3:13 SIN is a mere cheat. While it pretends to please us,it beguiles us! Sin does as Jael did. First she brought the milk and butter to Siserathen she pounded the tent peg through his head! (Judges 5:26). Sin first courtsand then kills!Sin is first a foxand then a lion!Those locusts in Revelation 9 are fit emblems of sin: "They had gold crowns on their heads . . . They had tails that stung like scorpions, with power to torture people!" Judas pleased himself with the thirty pieces of silverbut they proved deceitful riches. Ask him now how he likes his bargain!
