John 11:33. When Jesus therefore saw her weeping: & the Jews also weeping that came with her; He groaned in Spirit & was troubled. — & again v. 35: Jesus wept.
These words are an account how our Saviour yet behaved himself, & was affected at the exceeding Grief of Mary, & her sister Martha, for the Death of his Friend Lazarus their Brother: [altogether as much, if not more, than any of his nearest Relations, & Acquaintance; as is expressed in the Text by his groaning, & being troubled in Spirit.] [faintly ruled across]
Many useful Heads might be produced on this subject: but I shall content myself at present with the following: That Grief & pity, & a fellow-feeling of the miseries of others, & tenderness of Heart, & bowels of Mercy & Love, & the rest of the human affections, are not inconsistent with wisdom, & Goodness: & that men may be truly wise, & virtuous, without being free from passions.
