The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1We are to rejoice under the cross;
5to ask patience of God;
13and in our trials not to impute our weakness, or sins, to him,
19but rather to hearken to the word, to meditate on it, and to do thereafter.
26Otherwise men may seem, but never be, truly religious.
