No creature hath the like resemblance to the divine nature, as light hath. He doth not only dwell in light, but he is light. Light is a pure, bright, clear, spiritual, unmixed substance. God is infinitely so.
MATTHEW HENRY, The Life of the Rev. Philip Henry
Sins are like circles in the water when a stone is thrown into it, one produces another. When anger was in Cain's heart, murder was not far off.
MATTHEW HENRY, The Life of the Rev. Philip Henry with Funeral Sermons for Mr. and Mrs. Henry
So great was the extremity of his pain and anguish, that he did not only sigh but roar.
MATTHEW HENRY, Commentaries
Every tear of sorrow sown by the righteous, springs up a pearl.
MATTHEW HENRY, attributed, Literary Extracts from English and Other Works
