Ethos"All that we can possibly say about it gives but a very feeble, faint representation of it; it is inexpressible and inconceivable: For 'who knows the power of God's anger?'" (39).
"The wrath of God is like great waters that are dammed fort he present...If God should only withdraw his hand from the floodgate,...and the fiery floods of the fierceness and wrath of God would rush forth with inconceivable fury, and would come upon you with omnipotent power" (38).
"The bow of God's wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart, and strains the bow, and it is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, and that of an angry God, without any promise or obligation at all, that keeps the arrow one moment from being made drunk with your blood" (38).
"The devil is waiting for them...There is the dreadful pit of the glowing flames of the wrath of God; there is hell's wide gaping mouth open; and you have nothing to stand upon, nor anything to take hold of; there is nothing between you and hell but the air; it is only the power and mere pleasure of God that holds you up” (37-38).
Pathos"[God's] wrath toward you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else but to be cast into the fire;...you are ten thousand times more abominable in his eyes than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours" (39).
Logos"You probably are not sensible of this; you find you are kept of out of hell, but do not see the hand of God in it; but look at other things, as the good state of your bodily constitution, your care of your own life, and the means you use for your own life. But indeed these things are nothing" (38).
