These Things, My Brother Aurelius, Most Dear unto Me...
The Desire of the Righteous Granted;
Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
The murderer riseth with the light; He killeth the poor and needy; And in the night he is as a thief.
For, lo, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string, That they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart;
The wicked watcheth the righteous, And seeketh to slay him.
That they may shoot in secret places at the perfect: Suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
For he will deliver the needy when he crieth, And the poor, that hath no helper.
They slay the widow and the sojourner, And murder the fatherless.
