Text Appearing Before Image: the soul of the pious. Sometimes, slander, grown bold, like a hungrywolf, attacks the reputation of the man of God, asShimei assailed David in the day of his adversity. Envy is known to plot in secret the destruction ofthat excellence she cannot reach; while//awe? takesadvantage of the unsuspecting child of God, andseeks to draw him into sin and trouble. In themidst of his persecutions, the Christian would fainborrow the wings of the dove, and seek refuge insome vast wilderness, some boundless contiguityof shade, or rather, the wings of some heavenlycherub ; then would he fly to mansions of eternal re-pose, where the wicked cease from troubling, andwhere the weary are forever at rest.
