Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.(Jer. 2:32)

From him we have ζωην και πνοην, “life and breath“, as the apostle saith elegantly. {1}

But into such a dead lethargy hath sin cast most people, that God is forgotten by them, and his service neglected.



  1. Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things. Ac 17:25
