"SATISFIED"

I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

I WONDER how many have ever noticed the placing of the commas in the passage from the seventeenth Psalm given above. How many have read it without heeding them at all. Changing the arrangement, as the punctuation warrants us in doing, it will read, "I shall be satisfied with thy likeness when I awake," Read thus, it seems to me that the following inferences can be drawn:— 1. We shall awake. 2. When we awake we shall awake with the likeness of God.

Viewed thus these words are packed with meaning. The promise is to all. To be satisfied is all that man can want or God can give, and this condition of satisfaction is to be attained by all when they awake—which they certainly will do—from their dream of mortal mind, and come to a knowledge of their true self—the likeness of God.
