This outward-sainted deputy,--
Whose settled visage and deliberate word
Nips youth i' the head, and follies doth emmew
As falcon doth the fowl,--is yet a devil.
SHAKS.: _M. for M.,_ Act iii., Sc. 1.
Neither man nor angel can discern
Hypocrisy, the only evil that walks
Invisible, except to God alone,
By His permissive will, through Heaven and Earth.
MILTON: _Par. Lost,_ Bk. iii., Line 682.
The hypocrite had left his mask, and stood
In naked ugliness. He was a man
Who stole the livery of the court of heaven
To serve the devil in.
POLLOK: _Course of Time,_ Pt. viii., Line 615.
