“Then shee said, Did I desire a sonne of my Lord ? did I not say, Doe not deceiue me?”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
4:28 She said - This child was not given to me upon my immoderate desire, for which I might have justly been thus chastised, but was freely promised by thee in God's name, and from his special favour. Deceive me - With vain hopes of a comfort that I should never have. And I had been much happier if I had never had it, than to lose it so quickly.
