Treasure of divine knowledge the Bible – Jonathan Edwards

“You all have by you a large treasure of divine knowledge, in that you have the Bible in your hands;bible-holding therefore be not contented in possessing but little of this treasure. God hath spoken much to you in the Scripture; labor to understand as much of what he saith as you can. God hath made you all reasonable creatures; therefore let not the noble faculty of reason or understanding lie neglected. Content not yourselves with…divine truth…you accidentally gain in conversation; but let it be very much your business to search for it, and that with the same diligence and labor with which men are wont to dig in mines of silver and gold.”

~ Jonathan Edwards
