  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • v. t Outpreach To surpass in preaching. "And for a villain's quick conversion
      A pillory can outpreach a parson."
    • ***


In poetry:

But when the force of precept fails,
A sad example oft prevails.
Beyond the rules a sage exhibits,
Thieves heed the arguments of gibbets,
And for a villain's quick conversion,
A pillory can outpreach a parson.
"To Ladies Of A Certain Age" by John Trumbull
