And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
In the plague time none will go abroad without some preservative. None will go forth into the fields, but take at least a staff with them for fear of the worst. Those that travel will not ride without their swords; those that know they have enemies will never go forth unweaponed; and kings always have their guards. Now all of us having Satan's temptations, and our enemies ready for us at every turn, we had need daily to resort to the armoury of the Scriptures, and there to furnish ourselves; for when this word shall be hid in our hearts, and enter into our souls, then shall we prevail both against the violent man and the flattering woman, that is, against all kind of temptations, whether on the right or on the left hand. "I have hid Thy word," saith David (Psalm 119.), "in mine heart, that I might not sin."
