The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mol-lified with ointment. – We are all as an unclean thing, and all our right-eousnesses are as filthy rags. – I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing.
Ye are washed, … ye are sanctified, … ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. – The King’s daughter is all glorious within. – Perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.
Let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us.
These are they which … have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. – A glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but … holy and without blemish. – Ye are complete in him.

August 9 evening
Broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
Eve … bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven. The LORD scattered them. – Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; it was well watered every where, even as the garden of the LORD. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. – I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards: I gathered me also silver and gold. Then I looked on all, and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit.
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. – He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
