CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
It stood still - It took a fixed position and looked on me. It at first glided by, or toward him, then stood in an immovable position, as if to attract his attention, and to prepare him for the solemn announcement which it was about to make. This was the point in which most horror would be felt.

Act i. Sc. i.

If thou hast any sound, or use of voice,

Therefore human nature is not more capable of being assumed than any other creature. Objection …
