Seite 289 - Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just ; that his justice cannot sleep forever; that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation is among possible events : that it may become probable by supernatural interference ! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest.
