"Yea, true repentance does in some respects especially turn a man against his own iniquity, that wherein he has been most guilty and has chiefly dishonoured God. He that forsakes other sins but saves his leading sin, the iniquity he is chiefly inclined to, is like Saul when sent against God's enemies the Amalekites with a strict charge to save none of them alive, but utterly destroy them, small and great; who utterly destroyed inferior people, but saved the King, the chief of them all, alive."
Jonathan Edwards. "The Religious Affections." Dover Publications, Inc: Mineola, New York. (1746) 2013. p.269.
