The priests and the doctors do not that which they command others to do; the righteous are persecuted, and the only portion of the good is weeping. The "world" is in this manner the enemy of God and His saints:[2] but God will awaken and avenge His saints. The day is at hand, for the abomination is at its height. The reign of goodness ...

... literature. In this case also, as in that of "moral blight," health is so often used in a figurative sense, that we are apt to forget that the expression is a simile; or the phrase "spiritual health" would sound as disagreeably as the commencement of the same portion of the Liturgy, were it altered to "We have erred and strayed from thy spiritual ways, like lost spiritual sheep."
