Job 40:5 But I will proceed no further
sc. In this controversy. I will not come into the lists to contend with thee. I see there is no safety in such a contest.
In many things we offend all, saith St James; and he is a perfect man who sinneth not with his tongue.
But as he who hath drunk poison maketh haste to cast it up again, ere it get to the vitals; so should we deal by our daily misdoings.
It is not falling into the water that drowns a man, but lying long under it. Bewail thy sin and hasten to get out of it.
