Job 24:10
10“They cause the poor to go about naked without clothing,
         And they take away the sheaves from the hungry.

11“Within the walls they produce oil;
         They tread wine presses but thirst.

12“From the city men groan,
         And the souls of the wounded cry out;
         Yet God does not pay attention to folly.

13“Others have been with those who rebel against the light;
         They do not want to know its ways
         Nor abide in its paths.

14“The murderer arises at dawn;
         He kills the poor and the needy,
         And at night he is as a thief.

15“The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight,
         Saying, ‘No eye will see me.’
         And he disguises his face.

16“In the dark they dig into houses,
         They shut themselves up by day;
         They do not know the light.

17“For the morning is the same to him as thick darkness,
         For he is familiar with the terrors of thick darkness.

18“They are insignificant on the surface of the water;
         Their portion is cursed on the earth.
         They do not turn toward the vineyards.

19“Drought and heat consume the snow waters,
         So does Sheol those who have sinned.

20“A mother will forget him;
         The worm feeds sweetly till he is no longer remembered.
         And wickedness will be broken like a tree.

21“He wrongs the barren woman
         And does no good for the widow.

22“But He drags off the valiant by His power;
         He rises, but no one has assurance of life.

23“He provides them with security, and they are supported;
         And His eyes are on their ways.

24“They are exalted a little while, then they are gone;
         Moreover, they are brought low and like everything gathered up;
         Even like the heads of grain they are cut off.

25“Now if it is not so, who can prove me a liar,
         And make my speech worthless?”

Whether the Husband Can on his Own Judgment Put Away his Wife on Account of Fornication?
Objection 1: It would seem that the husband can on his own judgment put away his wife on account of fornication. For when sentence has been pronounced by the judge, it is lawful to carry it out without any further judgment. But God, the just Judge, has pronounced this judgment, that a husband may put his wife away on account of fornication. Therefore no further judgment is required for this. Objection 2: Further, it is stated (Mat. 1:19) that Joseph . . . being a just man . . . "was minded to put"

Whether to be Eternal Belongs to God Alone?
Objection 1: It seems that it does not belong to God alone to be eternal. For it is written that "those who instruct many to justice," shall be "as stars unto perpetual eternities [*Douay: 'for all eternity']" (Dan. 12:3). Now if God alone were eternal, there could not be many eternities. Therefore God alone is not the only eternal. Objection 2: Further, it is written "Depart, ye cursed into eternal [Douay: 'everlasting'] fire" (Mat. 25:41). Therefore God is not the only eternal. Objection 3: Further,

Whether in Hell the Damned are Tormented by the Sole Punishment of Fire?
Objection 1: It would seem that in hell the damned are tormented by the sole punishment of fire; because Mat. 25:41, where their condemnation is declared, mention is made of fire only, in the words: "Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire." Objection 2: Further, even as the punishment of purgatory is due to venial sin, so is the punishment of hell due to mortal sin. Now no other punishment but that of fire is stated to be in purgatory, as appears from the words of 1 Cor. 3:13: "The fire

Whether the Old Law Set Forth Suitable Precepts About the Members of the Household?
Objection 1: It would seem that the Old Law set forth unsuitable precepts about the members of the household. For a slave "is in every respect his master's property," as the Philosopher states (Polit. i, 2). But that which is a man's property should be his always. Therefore it was unfitting for the Law to command (Ex. 21:2) that slaves should "go out free" in the seventh year. Objection 2: Further, a slave is his master's property, just as an animal, e.g. an ass or an ox. But it is commanded (Dt.
Saint Thomas Aquinas—Summa Theologica

Degrees of Sin
Are all transgressions of the law equally heinous? Some sins in themselves, and by reason of several aggravations, are more heinous in the sight of God than others. He that delivered me unto thee, has the greater sin.' John 19: 11. The Stoic philosophers held that all sins were equal; but this Scripture clearly holds forth that there is a gradual difference in sin; some are greater than others; some are mighty sins,' and crying sins.' Amos 5: 12; Gen 18: 21. Every sin has a voice to speak, but some

The Desire of the Righteous Granted;
OR, A DISCOURSE OF THE RIGHTEOUS MAN'S DESIRES. ADVERTISEMENT BY THE EDITOR As the tree is known by its fruit, so is the state of a man's heart known by his desires. The desires of the righteous are the touchstone or standard of Christian sincerity--the evidence of the new birth--the spiritual barometer of faith and grace--and the springs of obedience. Christ and him crucified is the ground of all our hopes--the foundation upon which all our desires after God and holiness are built--and the root
John Bunyan—The Works of John Bunyan Volumes 1-3

The book of Job is one of the great masterpieces of the world's literature, if not indeed the greatest. The author was a man of superb literary genius, and of rich, daring, and original mind. The problem with which he deals is one of inexhaustible interest, and his treatment of it is everywhere characterized by a psychological insight, an intellectual courage, and a fertility and brilliance of resource which are nothing less than astonishing. Opinion has been divided as to how the book should be
