NINETEENTH TALK 397 the Lord came, as apparently He used to do in those days, and said: st Why did you send him away?" Abraham said with great indignation: " Lord, he refused to recognise Thy Name. He is an infidel of the worst type." "Yes," God said, ^but I have borne with him for sixty years ; surely you can bear with him for one hour." There is a great deal to be learned,from that story.
