Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Preacher
 
Judge not the preacher; for he is thy Judge,
  If thou mislike him, thou conceivest him not.
God calleth preaching folly. Do not grudge
  To pick out treasures from an earthen pot.
The worst speak something good.
        Herbert.—The Temple, Church Porch, Verse 72.
  1
Jest not the preacher’s language or expression:
How know’st thou but thy sins made him miscarry?
        Herbert.—The Temple, Church Porch, Verse 74.
