The mind must be filled with godly meditations, and the word of God must dwell in our hearts plenteously: for unchaste lusts do therefore arise in our hearts, because we are idle minded, and empty of God’s word: if that were truly ingraffed in us, these wicked desires could not enter, or at least take no place in us.
