The Beauty of Holiness
1 Chronicles 16:29; 2 Chronicles 20:21
He that sees the beauty of holiness, or true moral good, sees the greatest and most important thing in the world, which is the fullness of all things, without which all the world is empty, indeed, worse than nothing. Unless this is seen, nothing is seen that is worth the seeing; for there is no other true excellency or beauty.

Coverdale’s Reason for Translating the Bible
To say the truth before God, it was neither my labour nor desire to have this work [of translating the Bible into English] put in my hand. Nevertheless it grieved me that other nations should be more plenteously provided for with the scripture in their mother tongue, than we in ours. Therefore, when I was instantly required, though I could not do so well as I would, I thought it yet my duty to do my best.
