Even after his death, when his heart is pierced by a lance, he pours out blood and water, symbols of the sacraments, his continued presence within us. Hence, they adored the Sun as the principal deity in the Gayatri mantra. “Dhiyo yonah Prachodayāt” - May the Sun illumine our intellects in the same way he sheds his effulgence. Your full strength is not as yet returned---give no triumph to the infidel.'' ``Peace, fool!'' said Richard, standing firm on his ground, and casting a fierce glance around---``thinkest thou that I can fail in his presence?'' The glittering broadsword, wielded by both his hands, rose aloft to the King's left shoulder, circled round his head, descended with the sway of some terrific engine, and the bar of iron rolled on the ground in two pieces, as a woodsman would sever a sapling with a hedging-bill. ``By the head of the Prophet, a most wonderful blow!'' said the Soldan, critically and accurately examining the iron bar which had been cut asunder; and the blade of the sword was so well tempered as to exhibit not the least token of having suffered by the feat it had performed.

This heart of God must be honored under the form of His heart of flesh, whose image He wanted exposed, and also worn on me and on my heart. With my body I honour you, all that I am I give to you, and all that I have I share with you, within the love of God, If rings are exchanged, they loose hands and the bride places a ring on the fourth finger of the bridegroom's left hand and, holding it there, says as a sign of our marriage. I have noticed and overlooked this warrior's insolent admiration of one so far above him, and I grudged him not that one of my blood should shed from her high-born sphere such influence as the sun bestows on the world beneath---But, heaven and earth! that you should have admitted him to an audience by night, in the very tent of our royal consort!---and dare to offer this as an excuse for his disobedience and desertion!---By my father's soul, Edith, thou shalt rue this thy lifelong in a monastery!'' ``My liege,'' said Edith, ``your greatness licenses tyranny.

(Wenham, Genesis 1-15 (Word Biblical Commentary), 276) Genesis’ note regarding the repercussions of eating the fruit (Genesis 3:7) is paced identically as the previous verse which details the decision to eat of the fruit (Genesis 3:6).
