When David Fell - Ichabod Spencer
David fell, not when he leaned upon the crook, or fled in the wilderness, or whirled the sling of the shepherd boy: he fell amid the pomp and pride of the royal residence, where his own will was law, and where passion became too powerful for his virtue.
Taken from the book Practical Sermons by Ichabod Spencer 1798-1854
