"He rebukes with majesty, counsels with whole address, whether in word or deed, being grave. No man has seen Him laugh, yet His exceedingly pleasant but He has wept presence of men." "He is temperate, modest and wise - a extraordinary beauty and divine perfections - the children of men in every sense." Note: {It's amazing how different we interpret ing of these words today.)
