Wordy Wednesday: Book Tombstone

My sister and I happened upon this tombstone whilst wandering around the “Old Gray Cemetery” in Knoxville, Tenn. I couldn’t make out the name on the stone, but the first name appears to be Ebenezer.

The words on the book are Bible passages:

Isaiah 52:7, King James Bible
“How beautiful upon the mount-ains are the feet of him that bring-eth good tidings that publisheth peace.”

Revelation 14:13, King James Bible
“Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from hence forth. Yea saith the spirit that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them.”
