Psalm 105:17 Parallel

August 14. "Touch not Mine Anointed, and do My Prophets no Harm" (Ps. Cv. 15).
"Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm" (Ps. cv. 15). I would rather play with the forked lightning, or take in my hands living wires, with their fiery current, than speak a reckless word against any servant of Christ, or idly repeat the slanderous darts which thousands of Christians are hurling on others, to the hurt of their own souls and bodies.

This would be a very bold challenge even for a man who had been righteous from his youth up. If
