Wesley's Notes on the Bible

52. Here some one will say, This is now not to write of virginity, but of humility. As though truly it were any kind of virginity, and not that which is after God, which we had undertaken to set forth. And this good, by how much I see it to be great, by so much I fear for it, lest it be lost, the thief pride.

From unaccountable sources, bad feelings of every description depress my soul, and along with these bad feelings come doubts that cast gloom over me.
