Jonathan Edwards on his first encounters with the Scriptures after being converted

I had then and at other times, the greatest delight in the holy Scriptures, of any book whatsoever. Oftentimes in reading it every word seemed to touch my heart. I felt a harmony between something in my heart, and those sweet and powerful words. I seemed often to see so much light exhibited by every sentence, and such refreshing food communicated, that I could not get along in reading; often dwelling long on one sentence to see the wonder contained in it, and yet almost every sentence seemed to be full of wonders.

Jonathan Edwards quoted from Jonathan Edwards: A New Biography by Iain Murray, p. 41
