Matthew Henry (1662 – 1714)


English non-conformist clergyman.
Matthew Henry
It is common for those that are farthest from God, to boast themselves most of their being near to the Church.
Henry quotes
After a storm comes a calm.
Henry
The better day, the worse deed.




Henry Matthew quotes
It was a common saying among the Puritans, "Brown bread and the Gospel is good fare."
Henry Matthew
Those that are above business.
Matthew Henry quotes
None so blind as those that will not see.
Matthew Henry
Judas had given them the slip.
Henry Matthew quotes
The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.
Henry
None is so deaf as those that will not hear.
Henry Matthew
Do nothing till thou hast well considered the end of it.
Matthew Henry
Hearkners, we say, seldom hear good of themselves.




Matthew Henry quotes
He rolls it under his tongue as a sweet morsel.
Matthew Henry
Men of polite learning and a liberal education.
Henry quotes
Here is bread, which strengthens man's heart, and therefore called the staff of life.
Henry Matthew
Saying and doing are two things.
Henry Matthew quotes
It is good news, worthy of all acceptation; and yet not too good to be true.
Matthew Henry
Those may justly be reckoned void of understanding that do not bless and praise God; nor do men ever rightly use their reason till they begin to be religious, nor live as men till they live to the glory of God. As reason is the substratum or subject of religion (so that creatures which have no reason are not capable of religion), so religion is the crown and glory of reason, and we have our reason in vain, and shall one day wish we had never had it, if we do not glorify God with it.
Matthew Henry quotes
So great was the extremity of his pain and anguish that he did not only sigh but roar.
Matthew Henry
To their own second thoughts.
Henry Matthew
Blushing is the colour of virtue.
