Abstract

To the Editor:—  Will you kindly call attention to an error in Biblical quotation on page 922 of The Journal, July 18, made by Dr. Post. "The years draw nigh when thou shalt say 'I have no pleasure in them' " is not to be found in the Lamentations of Jeremiah but is the first sentence in the twelfth chapter of the book of Ecclesiastes attributed to King Solomon.It is an unintentional error quoted probably from memory. The corrected version reads:Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youthWhile the evil days come notNor the years draw nigh when thou shalt sayI have no pleasure in them.
