Blowing at Scripture

Puritan Thomas Watson (c. 1620 -1686):

The devil and his agents have been blowing at Scripture light, but could never blow it out; a clear sign that it was lighted from heaven….The letter of Scripture has been preserved, without any corruption, in the original tongue.

~A Body of Divinity (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1965, First published in 1692), 27.
