Hush your insane murmurs, O worm!

(James W. Alexander, "Consolation" 1852)

"Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"
    Genesis 18:25

The Judge of all the earth will do right! The
reverse is inconceivable. When we think of a
being who can do wrongówe no longer think
of God. Nothing which He does can be . . .
  unjust,
  arbitrary,
  or harsh.

Will not the Judge of all the earth do right? "It
is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that
the Almighty would pervert justice.
" Job 34:12

Hush your insane murmurs, O worm!


Submission to God's will, and that in the most
absolute sense, is the duty of every believer; and
is a state of mind to which the influences of the
regenerating and sanctifying Spirit infallibly lead.
