to escape; not implanting the thorn in our flesh, save to temper the abundance of
“And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my
father and my mother, and then I will follow thee.” God's calls are not commands,
but favours; so the Prophet said to him, “Go back again; for what have I done to ...
He had gently intimated this to her at the very time of His becoming subject to her,
