Lilith (Part 3)

Confession time: I love the “King James” language. That doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for those who have worked to translate the Bible (and the accompanying discussion about it) into more modern vernacular, but there’s something about the old English aesthetic that I find very attractive, especially in the context of the spiritual.

Is not the being thou hast corrupted become to thee at length an evil thing? Wouldst thou yet live on in disgrace eternal? Cease thou canst not: wilt thou not be restored and BE?

I’m not sure there’s anything useful I could add to that beautiful question. Thanks be to the One who both asks it and makes it so.
