Job 6:14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend;

By a sweet tender melting frame of spirit, such as was that of the Church, #Ps 102:13, and that of Paul, #2Co 11:29, “Who is weak, and I am not weak?” sc. by way of sympathy; “who is offended, and I burn not?” when others are hurt, I feel twinges: as the tongue complaineth for the hurt of the toe, and as the heart condoleth with the heel, and there is a fellow feeling amongst all the members; so there is likewise in the mystical body.
