Thus will all wrong courses sooner or later bring down punishment upon those who enter upon them. The plot looked fair. Who was to discover the falsehood? Were not the plundered ornaments conclusive evidence? David would be sure to ennoble the bearer of such good tidings! The cunning sinner had made one error in his reckoning, and it proved to be a fatal one. Let us take warning and never leave the path of truth. We should abhor every form of deception, for the Lord will not endure liars and will surely overthrow them.
The Lord is wise and wonderful,
As all the ages tell:
O learn of him, learn now of him,
That all he does is well.
And in his light shall we see light,
Nor still in darkness roam,
And he shall be to us a rest,
When evening shadows come.
