"May we not safely say, there is no book of the Bible which has not some reference to trial, while many parts are full of reference to the subject. In the book of Psalms for example, out of one hundred and fifty Psalms, it is reckoned that in ninety of them there is some allusion made to suffering. There is no saint in the Bible, of whose history we have any lengthened record, who was not called to endure trouble in some form; and very frequently the most eminent saints were most tried. Those who were called to important services, were generally trained in the school of affliction.
