Verses 1-26

Ezekiel 28:5

Riches in a cultured community are the strongest of things; a power all-moving, yet which only the most powerless and skilless can put in motion; they are the readiest of possibilities; the readiest to become a great blessing or a great curse. 'Beneath gold thrones and mountains,' says Jean Paul, 'who knows how many giant spirits lie entombed?'

Carlyle, Essay on Goethe's Works.

Reference. XXVIII. 13, 14. J. M. Neale, Sermons for Some Feast Days in the Christian Year, p. 258. XXIX. 6. J. M. Neale, Sermons on the Prophets, vol. ii. p. 35.
