    Chapter 41 - One fold and One Shepherd

    The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.” 1Genesis 49:10.EVCO 503.1

    These are a portion of the words uttered by the patriarch Jacob just before he “died in faith.” He had called his sons to him, and was giving a prophetic view of what should befall them “in the last days.” (Verse 1.) The meaning of Shiloh is peace or quiet, and as the personal pronoun indicates that it is used with reference to a person, and not to a city, we know that Christ, the “Prince of peace,” 2Isaiah 9:6. “who is our peace,” 3Ephesians 2:14. is the One referred to. “The Government shall be upon His shoulder,” and “of the increase of His Government and peace there shall be no end.” 4Isaiah 9:6, 7. This is indicated in the alternative renderings in the margin of the Revised Version: “Till He come to Shiloh, having the obedience of the peoples,” or “Until that which is His shall come,” or “Till He come whose it is.”EVCO 503.2
