The Holy War – 3

Once again they petitioned the King, this time pleading for mercy.  The Prince said, “I have power and commandment to from my Father to forgive you, and do forgive accordingly.”

“He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and the garment of praise, that they may be called oaks of righteousness” (from Isaiah 61:3).

*adapted from John Bunyan, The Holy War, p.173.
