Excerpt from Bible Ways in Bible Lands an Impression of Palestine I will illustrate my meaning. We had ridden from Luxor one blue summer's day in midwinter, towards the Tombs of the Kings. The early morning was perfection, towards on the heat became scorching the sand beneath our feet caught and re ected the fiery radiance of the sun, so there was little comfort in sunhelmets or umbrellas. We had ridden for hours and had still far to go to reach the grateful coolness of our hotel, when suddenly we came to a great bluff of sandstone rising sheer out of the desert, and threw ourselves from the saddle beneath its grateful shade. The shadow of a great rock in a weary land ashed across my mind and almost escaped my lips, but t quite; I was still shy of quoting the Bible before strangers, and some hotel acquaintances, a London doctor and his wife were with us - they rode up after us - and the doctor uttered those beautiful words of the Psalmist as he entered the shadow of the rock.
