>Resentment is certainly the efficient cause for Satan's rebellion, his harping on "injur'd merit," and so on.  (...) what drives sinners to continue in the wrong path is "despair,"


MERIT

injured merit burns
but sweet by your side the one
you loved, tho' how changed


DESPAIR

with deep despair - with
deep despair vaunting aloud -
O hooligan Prince
