"I opened that promise in Psal. 91. Now if I had lived in the time of the Law, perhaps I might have been somewhat more confident of the literal performance of the promise, than I can now in the time of the Gospel, the promise now bears no more than this, that God hath a special protection over his people, and that he will deliver them from the evil of such an affliction, and if it doth bring such an affliction, it is more than an ordinary providence, it is some special providence that God hath in it."
Jeremiah Burroughs. "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment." London: Printed by W. Bentley for L. Sadler and R. Beaumont, 1651. Reproduction of the original in the Union Theological Seminary (New York, N.Y.) Library. p.44.
