he put

during my illness; and often on a Sunday, when I have spent the day alone, I have read the whole of the New Testament, unable to leave off till I had grasped all the mind of the Spirit at once. Perhaps father has thought I read too few religious books.—He has looked anxious at my neglect of many

in my way,—I do not give myself in this respect for an example—but I have found little benefit from books, sermons, or conversations. The Bible, the Bible alone has taught me everything. If I read books on religion, however excellent, the thought always haunted me

-it is human-it may be wrong. I could not rest till I went to the Bible. Here I felt sure that all was divine and infallible ; and I found such comfort in the simple truth of God's word, that I set aside every other book dissatisfied. I may well be earnest, then, in pressing you to go to the Bible.”

He then said, But you must pray over the Bible :—without the teaching of the Spirit it will do you no good, you must apply it as you go on to yourself, and feel it personally, or you will get no benefit, though you stand the whole day over it. I have been in the habit of reading the Bible on my knees, and I recommend you to do the same. It encourages prayer. I have found it very useful to turn Scripture into prayer, using the very words. There is not a Psalm I have not turned to prayer. I have felt so safe in making prayers from the Bible, because then I knew I could not err; and let prayer always be preceded by self-examination; lay your heart bare before God; indulge not even a doubtful feeling ; one secret sin will cloud all.”
