THE CAUSEWAY

From the June 1927 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IN a marginal reading of the fifteenth chapter of the book of Proverbs, we find the words "is made plain," in the sentence, "The way of the righteous is made plain," rendered "is raised up as a causey. " This word "causey" was the Old English form of the word "causeway," which in latter years has been more or less replaced by the word "pavement," meaning a path raised above the road or carriage way, a path set apart for the safety and security of pedestrians.
