Oh, ye of little faith

O ye of little faith

A mild and humorously formal rebuke of someone who has expressed doubt or incredulity about something one said one would or could do. A line used in several places in the New Testament, the uncommon and somewhat archaic interjection "O" is often simply rendered to "oh" in modern English. A: "Oh, wow. It looks like your shortcut really did save us a bunch of time." B: "O ye of little faith." A: "Are you sure this will work?" B: "Come on, I know what I'm doing, oh ye of little faith."
