"I will reprove thee and set before thine eyes what thou hast done." It is the Lord who thus spoke; all that opposes Him must of necessity oppose itself; so that at last there will be the complaint, "O thou watcher of men, why hast thou set me as a mark for thee, so that I am a burden to myself?" . . . Nothing can contradict God and be consistent with itself; on the contrary, whosoever shall be reproved by God shall be reproved also by himself.
