BIOGRAPHICAL PREFACE, AND EDITED BY SAMUEL HOPGOOD HART
JOHN M. WATKINS
O CONSIDER THIS, YE THAT EAT FLESH.
“The Lord will abhor both the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. (…) Their inward parts are very wickedness. Their throat is an open sepulchre.” (Psalms 5:7-10)
“They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become filthy”. (Psalms 14:1-3).
“Their throat is an open sepulcher. (…) Their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and unhappiness are in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Romans 3:15-18)
“I will take no bullock out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy folds. For every beast of the forest is mine, and so are the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fouls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the whole world is mine, and all that is therein. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? (Psalms 50:9-13)
“What dost thou preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. (…) thou thoughtest wickedly, that I am even such a one as thyself (…) Now consider this, ye that forget God”. (Psalms 50:16-22)
“AS FOR ME, I WILL WALK INNOCENTLY.” (Psalms 26:11)
