Thomas Boston, Works, 4:138:

True knowledge carries a man out of himself to Christ, and so fills a man with humility and self denial. “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear,” says Job, “but now mine eye seeth thee, wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” That knowledge which puffeth up is none of the right sort; for were it of the right kind, it would, as a river, run into the sea of the excellency of Christ, and raise him, and empty and humble men’s selves in their own eyes. No more knowledge of Christ have we, than we have of humility and self denial. They to whom Christ is all, will themselves be nothing in their own eyes.
