Luther Quote of the Day

Accordingly, when it pleases them, the saintly patriarchs concern themselves with household and civil affairs, govern their children and domestics, quarrel with their wives, and busy themselves to such an extent with secular matters that they seem to be on the lowest plane in household and civil life. At times they rise above all the heavens, at times they are in hell, and at times they remain in the midst of the world. They are altogether extraordinary people.

Luther’s works, vol. 8: Lectures on Genesis: Chapters 45-50
