|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from King James Bible:
have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger.
KI1 14:16 And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam,
who did sin, and who made Israel to sin.
KI1 14:17 And Jeroboam's wife arose, and departed, and came to Tirzah:
and when she came to the threshold of the door, the child died;
KI1 14:18 And they buried him; and all Israel mourned for him,

intimacy with Mr. Faraday to ask him whether his parents showed any
signs of unusual ability. He could remember none. His father,
I believe, was a great sufferer during the latter years of his life,
and this might have masked whatever intellectual power he possessed.
When thirteen years old, that is to say in 1804, Faraday was
apprenticed to a bookseller and bookbinder in Blandford Street,

which he worked as a journeyman elsewhere.
