And when the LORD your God shall deliver them before you; you shall smite them, and utterly destroy them…
Eliza Embert, a young Parisian lady, resolutely discarded a gentleman to whom she was to have been married the next day because he ridiculed religion. Having given him a gentle reproof for some impropriety, he replied that "a man of the world would not be so old-fashioned as to regard God and religion." Eliza immediately started; but soon recovering herself, said, "From this moment, as I discover you do not respect religion, I cease to be yours."
