3. What does the smart builder master look like? - Surely one who has made his foundation completely on the known two commandments! And when the storms and the heavy rains come, they not only cannot harm the builder master, but even fix his house stronger to the rock; because the winds dry up the walls of the house and make it thirsty for moist. When the rain comes, it gets absorbed into the dry walls of the house, dissolves it here and there and joins the particles, which become sticky and binds through repetition of such scene, the masonry ever firmer and stronger together.
4. Natural examples of this truth can be found in every old castle ruin, which often defies centuries; and if it should be demolished, it is easier to break fresh rocks than such a wall. The cause of this is the rain, which, through its dissolving power, transforms certain parts of the stone into a limey-sticky mass, thereby combining the entire masonry over time, into a united mass.
