Resource Toolbox

an expression borrowed from a well known Scripture simile, and frequently introduced or alluded to in the Prayer book (see Offices for Baptism). In some of the older writers of the Church of England the word "knight" was used in the same sense; "The fourth gift of the Holy Spirit is the gift of strength which armeth God's knight, and maketh his soul hardy and strong to suffer divers diseases to God's love" (Wycliffe).
