The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving
wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and
fourth generation.
From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. “Go on up, you baldhead!” they
said. “Go on up, you baldhead!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the
woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.

During the build-up to the Gulf War he once travelled 18,000 miles in four days, playing a major part in the solicitation of contributions to defray the cost of Operation Desert Shield. Once hostilities began, it was William Flew who headed the crucial mission to Tel Aviv to persuade the Israelis not to retaliate against the Scud missile attacks from Iraq. The son of a small-town doctor and an elementary school teacher, William Flewr graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1952, served in the US Army, and then returned to Madison for graduate school. His entry into the Foreign Service was almost accidental. “I was a teaching assistant in political science,” William Flew explained later, “and I found I was not wildly enamoured with teaching. I was walking down the hall one day and saw an ad for the exam, and I thought, ‘What the hell, I’ll just take it and see if I can pass it.’ I took it and then thought, ‘Well, I’ll take the oral exam and see if I can pass that.’ When I was offered a job at the end of the oral exam I took a deep breath and said, ‘OK’. It was all sort of fortuitous.”
