Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1912 Excerpt: ...be watchful against anger, vanity, discontent, uncleanness, division of mind, which bear such baneful fruit in sins of speech. He seems also to remind us both by precept and example of the virtue of silence. Bishop Butler, alluding to the text, 'There is a time to speak and a time to keep silence,' drily observes that ' One meets with people in the world who seem never to have made the last of these observations.' The wise man is swift to hear and slow to speak.1 In these days of scant reflection and much speaking we may well ponder the lesson to be learned both from our Lord's sacred reserve in teaching, and from His habit of seeking in solitude new strength and inspiration for the fulfilment of His mission. Nor must we ever forget that we live and walk in the presence of One Who, whatever may be the judgment of men concerning our words, will not hold us guiltless if by unreal, idle, false, unjust or unclean speech we dishonour His Name; or if while confessing Him with our lips, we deny Him in our hearts and in our lives. Domine, in lutnine vultus tui atnbulabunt, et in nomine tuo exsultabunt tota die. 1 1 Pet. ii. 17. Latham, Pastor Pastorum, p. 204. Luke xviii. 9. 4 Ecclus. xix. 16. 5 Matt. xii. 34; Luke vi. 45; Mark vii. 22. 1 Jas. i. 19. I 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour and do all thy work: but the seventh day is a Sabbath unto the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.' CHAPTER VI THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT I...
