She should look well after her conduct.
If she weeps over religion, she will be disappointed in the desires of her heart.
If she is defiant, but innocent of offence, she will shoulder burdens bravely, and stand firm against deceitful admonitions.

If they live pure and correct lives as indicated by the church, they will see little of the solemnity of the church or preachers.) ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation
