Psalms 119:143

Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet your commandments are my delights.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
141. On account of this law the younger suffered persecution from the elder, so that the younger saith what followeth: "Trouble and hardship have taken hold upon me: yet is my meditation in Thy commandments" (ver. 143). Let them rage, let them persecute; as long as the commandments of God be not abandoned, and, after those commandments, let even those who rage be loved.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
