or what shall we say of those who dread the frown of man, “whose breath is in his nostrils, who shall die and be as grass,” tf rather than “fear him who liveth for ever and ever, and who has the keys of hell and of death.” #1 “Surely these are poor; they are foolish : for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.”SS
