Envy of a neighbour's good
276. Their Tongue is a sharp Sword.
evil. Keep thee far from a false matter. Thou shalt not respect the person of the
poor, Nor honour the person of the mighty. Thou shalt not go up and down As a talebearer among thy people. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge Against the children of thy people, But thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Exod. xxiii. 1-7; Levit. xix. 15–18.
277. Judging our Neighbour. JUDGE not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall
be judged ; And with what measure ye mete, It shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote
eye, And then shalt thou see clearly To cast out the mote out of thy brother's
eye.—Matt, vii. 1.
Charity thinketh no Evil.
SPEAK not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and
judgeth his brother, Speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the
law: But if thou judge the law, thou art not a
doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save
and to destroy : Who art thou that judgest another ?
James iv. 11; Eph. iv. 31.
279. Honour to whom Honour is due. (7.5's.)
BLESSED is a lowly mind,
And a modest heart;
Pleasant 'tis to see the young

Loyal at her call.
Courtesy and aid ;
Reverence be paid.

Holy and true and old ;
And worshipped calves of gold.
0, were there none to teach the young
Before old age to rise ?
God's servants to despise ?
To scoff with one accord;
The prophet of the Lord.
It caine upon them there ;
understanding ; And lo, it was all grown over with thorns, And nettles had covered the face thereof; And the stone wall thereof was broken
down. Then I saw, and considered it well; I looked upon it, and received instruction,
Prov. xxiv. 30. 283. Not Slothful in Business. (s. M.)
ALL idle children stand
Full in temptation's way ; And evils lurk on every hand,
To wile their souls astray.
One sin will catch the eye,
Another tempt the heart ;
To bear in sin a part.
Or skilful healthy play,
Temptation goes away.
To guard you at your work ;
From sins which round you lurk.
