“It was jealousy that moved Ishmael to murder Gedaliah. The Bible has a habit of revealing the fateful consequences of human passions. Who amongst us really believes that that jealous spirit within is capable of this? Believe the Bible rather than your own feelings, and be on your guard. Root it out!”
(Rev James Philip on Jeremiah 41:1-10, Gardenstown Church, Friday 24th August 1956)
