Consider and reflect upon His days, when God raised Him up to promote

His Cause and to stand as the representative of His own Self. Witness how

He was assailed, denied, and denounced by all; how, when He set foot in

the streets and marketplaces, the people derided Him, wagged their heads

at Him, and laughed Him to scorn; how at every moment they sought to slay

Him. Such were their doings that the earth in all its vastness was

straitened for Him, the Concourse on High bewailed His plight, the

foundations of existence were reduced to nothingness, and the eyes of the

well-favoured denizens of His Kingdom wept sore over Him. Indeed, so

grievous were the afflictions which the infidels and the wicked showered

upon Him that no faithful soul can bear to hear them.
