will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the
people, and gather you out of the countries wherein
you have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you
before the heathen. And ye shall know that I am the L, when I
shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the
country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to
your fathers. And there shall ye remember your ways,
and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled;
and ye shall loath yourselves in your own sight for all
your evils that ye have committed. Bible (Old Testament) ORDEzekiel 20:41^3.
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto
him,Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? Bible (NewTestament) St Matthew13:28.
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may, Old Time is still a
flying: And this same
flower that smiles to day, Tomorrow will be
dying. Robert Herrick 'To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time'.
