"The next day Agrippa and Bernice arrived at the auditorium with great pomp." Acts 25:23. That is, with great phantasy or vain show. All the honor, pomp, and accolade of this world is but a phantasy. Worldly honor is but a great nothing—a glorious illusion, a shadow, a dream. Great swelling titles are but as so many rattles, or as so many feathers in men's caps. Worldly honor is but a wind, which will blow a man the sooner to hell. Adonibezek, a mighty prince, is quickly made to eat scraps from under the table with the dogs. Judges 1:7. Nebuchadnezzar, a mighty conqueror, turned a-grazing among the oxen. Daniel 4:28. Herod is reduced from a conceited god—to be the most loathsome of men, a living carrion attacked by worms, the vilest of creatures. Acts 12:23. Great Haman feasted with the king one day, and made a feast for crows the next day. Esther 7:10.
