The choice vine.

Samuel Bagster

Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: my Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes. § Yet I had planted you a noble vine, a seed of highest quality.

Samuel Bagster

Thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. § Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud...
