Proverbs 13:12

Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
Read Chapter 13

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Hope. Septuagint, "(the just shows mercy and lends) better is he who begins heartily to assist, than he who promises and leads to hope. For a bad (Grabe substitutes good) desire is a tree of life. " Soul. Protestants, "maketh the heart sick. "(Haydock) The pain increases in proportion to our eager desire. Calvin maintains, that the souls of the blessed are not yet in heaven, but hope: and of course he would establish a sort of purgatory for them. (Haydock)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
