Hypocrites are like the Swan

How many are painted only with the vermilion of a profession, whose seeming luster dazzles the eyes of the beholders, but within there is nothing but petrification! Hypocrites are like the swan, which has white feathers, but black skin; or like the lily, which has a fair color, but a bad scent. ‘Thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead’ (Rev. 3:1). “The Godly Man’s Picture” pg. 15
