Examples

  • But when — not the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul, nor he blessed who doth ungodlily, but — a man is praised for some gift which Thou hast given him, and he rejoices more at the praise for himself than that he hath the gift for which he is praised, he also is praised, while Thou dispraisest; better is he who praised than he who is praised.

  • Richard Haryson (1535) was fain to confess, in the deed of surrender, that the monks had, “under the shadow of their rule, vainly detestably, and ungodlily devoured their yearly revenues in continual ingurgitations of their carrion bodies, and in support of their over voluptuous and carnal appetites.” {243b} We cannot but suspect that such language was that of their enemies, put into their mouths, when resistance was no longer possible.

  • But when—not the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul, 95 nor he blessed who doth ungodlily, 96 but—a man is praised for some gift which Thou hast given him, and he rejoices more at the praise for himself than that he hath the gift for which he is praised, he also is praised, while Thou dispraisest; and better is he who praised than he who is praised.

    The Tenth Book

  • This first text, therefore, hath been by you abused, in that you have ungodlily strained it, but in vain, to make it warrant your heathenish preparations to faith.
