"To a man who knows the value of the Word of God, it is . . .
nearer than his friends,
dearer than his life,
sweeter than his liberty,
pleasanter than his daily comforts."
"How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" (Psalm 119:103).
"They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb" (Psalm 19:10).
"This one book is worth more than all the other books in the world! He who reads this book with attention, humility, prayer, and self application, can never be ignorant of that which it chiefly concerns him to know. "Therein are contained the words of eternal life. It has God for its Author, salvation for its object, and truth, without mixture of error, for its matter."
