He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:45.)
Great reminder, Tim — also nice use of the subjunctive mood. 🙂
I was hoping I’d used it right. Nice to get a passing grammar grade from a writing instructor, Jeannie!
I’ve heard something along these lines when someone’s talking about a person/group who’s done something truly heinous:
“They don’t deserve mercy!”
Well, if you deserved it, then it wouldn’t be mercy . . .
“Undeserved mercy” does seem like a needlessly adorned phrase, doesn’t it?
