''And he went up from thence unto Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and siad unto him, Go up, thou bald head! Go up, thou bald head! And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she-bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.''-- 2 Kings, 2:23,24'' ''Who would not sleep on Jacob's stone, / Might Jacob's dream be given? / The Lord stood on his burning throne, / And angels throng'd the way to heaven. // With trembling awe he rose and stood, An altar rais'd, and worshipp'd there: / And call'd it Bethel--House of God, / The gate of heaven--the house of prayer. / In later times, a city spread / Its shade around that hallow'd stone; / But there no heavenly vision led / The spirit upward to the throne.''-- from ''Sinful Language Displeasing to God.''.
