Page 101 - O our God, wilt thou not judge them ? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us ; neither know we what to do : but our eyes are upon thee.
Page 107 - The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die : and their departure is taken for misery, and their going from us to be utter destruction : but they are in peace.

Page 89 - O, mind the secret sprigs and tender plants. Now you are called to dress the garden. Let not the weeds and wild plants remain. Peevishness is a weed; anger is a weed; selflove and self-will are weeds ; pride is a wild plant; covetousness is a wild plant; lightness and vanity are wild plants, and lust is the root of all.

Page 89 - But the spring comes first. 0, how beautiful is the spring in a barren field, where barrenness and deadness fly away. As the spring comes on, the winter casts her coat and the summer is nigh. O, wait to see and read these things within. You that have been as barren and dead and dry, without sap ; unto you the Sun of righteousness is risen with healing in his wings and begins to shine in your coasts.
