"One day I was standing on the very edge of the stern of the ship, thinking to drown myself; but this scripture was instantly impressed on my mind--'That no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him'."
— Equiano, Olaudah [Gustavus Vasa] (c. 1745-1797)
'That no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him,'
(II, pp. 147-9)
