Matt. 23.37.
Subject presented me since I came in this house.——
I a rough stone. the sound of the hammer & chisel was never hea[r]d on me. nor never will be. I desire the learning & wisdom of heaven alone.
Have not the least idea but if Christ should come and preach such rough thi[n]gs as he preahd [preached] to the Jews. but this generati[o]n would reject reject him for b[e]ing so rough. I never can find much to say in expou[n]ding a text. [p. [240]]
