"There is, we must all have felt, a singular personality in the language of the Bible. We hear in the Scriptures the living voices of living men speaking to ourselves. Phrases of the Bible startle us by their direct application to our own needs, by their clear revelation of our own thoughts; they cling, as it were, to us; they reach where no friend's voice could reach. They stay even where the counsel of love could find no entrance." Bishop Westcott.
