“Neither doth God respect any person”.
He does not overlook the little nor fear the great. He does not spare the poor from pity nor the rich from favor. He is not moved by the venerableness of age or the charms of infancy. He gives the destroyer a universal commission, and orders him to strike impartially as to time, place, and manner. Youth, beauty, strength, learning, wisdom, and usefulness lie down equally in the dust. – William Jay (1769-1853), commenting on 2 Samuel 14.14.
