Elias Boudinot on the Value of Re-Reading the Bible

For nearly half a century have I anxiously and critically studied that invaluable treasure [the Bible]; and I still scarcely ever take it up, that I do not find something new – that I do not receive some valuable addition to my stock of knowledge; or perceive some instructive fact, never observed before.
–  Elias Boudinot (1740-1821), American lawyer, statesman, and founding father; a president of the Continental Congress
