Of course he knew! Even before he began his sermon, women became faint. Then, he began speaking about secret sin; the "hearers quaked." At the sermon's conclusion, people got out as quickly as they could and congregated. Some whispered, some spoke in loud voices, and others went home to wrap themselves up in "silent meditation." People who usually asked the minister to dinner didn't do so....... I think he got the hint. What do you think?
