“Select only strong, healthy, and good-looking young men,” he said (Daniel 1:4; NLT).
They were all attractive young men, captains and commanders dressed in handsome blue (Ezekiel 23:6; NLT).
I saw a gang of scaffolders
On a house –
Young men in the prime of life,
Tall and healthy,
Capable and strong,
Full of energy and cheerfulness.
I smiled at them,
And blessed them in my heart;
Then envied them,
For being everything I’m not;
Because of all I’ve never been,
And never will be
In this life.
