    I need your assistance in figuring out what Richard Hooker is talking about in the highlight section of the below quotation:

    that in the hour when God shall call us unto our trial and turn this hony of of peace and pleasure wherewith we swell in that gall and bitterness which flesh doth shrink to taste of, nothing may cause us in the troubles of our souls to storm and grudge and repine at God ...

    Richard Hooker, A Remedy Against Sorrow and Fear, Delivered in a Funeral Sermon (Oxford: Joseph Barnes, 1612), p. 7.

    Where is @py3ak when you need him? ;)

    "Honey of," drop the second "of"? contrasting the sweatness of peace and pleasure to bitter things the flesh shrinks from to taste.

    read "in" as "into that gall"?

    Thanks, Chris. I think that is it sorted.
