Woe unto you….

President Polk quotes the Bible during conversation

Mrs. Polk was extremely popular. ” Madam,” said a prominent South Carolinian, at one of her receptions, “there is a woe pronounced against you in the Bible.” On her inquiring his meaning, [Mr. Polk] added: “The Bible says, ‘ Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you.'” [Luke 6:26]{1887 Appletons‘ Encyclopedia}
