Man and wife are equally concerned to avoid all offense of each other in the beginning of their conversation. A little thing can blast an infant blossom.

Jeremy Taylor

Jeremy Taylor was a clergyman in the Church of England who achieved fame as an author during The Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. He is sometimes known as the “Shakespeare of Divines” for his poetic style of expression and was often presented as a model of prose writing. He is remembered in the Church of England’s calendar of saints with a Lesser Festival on 13 August.

He went on to become chaplain in ordinary to King Charles I as a result of Laud’s sponsorship. This made him politically suspect when Laud was tried for treason and executed in 1645 by the Puritan Parliament during the English Civil War. After the Parliamentary victory over the King, he was briefly imprisoned several times.

Eventually, he was allowed to live quietly in Wales, where he became the private chaplain of the Earl of Carbery. At the Restoration, his political star was on the rise, and he was made Bishop of Down and Connor in Ireland. He also became vice-chancellor of the University of Dublin.

Taylor’s fame has been maintained by the popularity of his sermons and devotional writings rather than by his influence as a theologian or his importance as an ecclesiastic. Source link

        A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.

        3 Lord, how they have increased who trouble me!
        Many are they who rise up against me.
        2 Many are they who say of me,
        “There is no help for him in God.” Selah

        3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
        My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
        4 I cried to the Lord with my voice,
        And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah

        5 I lay down and slept;
        I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
        6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
        Who have set themselves against me all around.

        7 Arise, O Lord;
        Save me, O my God!
        For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
        You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
        8 Salvation belongs to the Lord.
        Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah
