  1. Feltham:

    We magnify the wealthy man, though his parts be never so poor. The poor man we despise, be he never so well qualified. Gold is the coverlet of imperfections. It is the fool?s curtain, which hides all his defects from the world.

  2. Gretchen Whitmer:

    Right outside my office right now, people have come to town who are not wearing masks, they are not observing the six-foot distance, give me some advice. How can I magnify what you're seeing and what you're experiencing ?

  4. Mary:

    My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit rejoiceth in God my Saviour. Because He hath looked down on the lowliness of His handmaid: for behold henceforth all generations will call me blessed. Because the Mighty One hath done great things for me: and holy is His name. And His mercy is from generation to generation: on those who fear Him. He showeth might in His arm: He scattereth the proud in the conceit of their heart. He casteth down the mighty from theirthrone: and exalteth the lowly. He filleth the hungry with good things: and the rich He sendeth away empty. He hath received His servant Israel: being mindful of His mercy. As He spake to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed forever.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    God edifies whoever that magnifies him via praises. That is to say, magnification evokes edification. Therefore, you've got to magnify God if you've not been doing so. Because, if you dare to magnify him (God). He will definitely edify you. I mean, he (God) will reciprocally build you up like a house. Oh! yes, he can and he will. As a matter of fact, king David magnified him all his lifetime and due to that, he built him up like a house. That is why he (God) made him (David) the most celebrated king of Israel. Moreover, God took David to be the only man after his own heart. Now at this juncture, I hope you should have found a single reason why you should magnify God hence forth. For, he is ever ready to edify you even more than he edified King David. -Emeasoba George
