Էջ 42 - Heaven doth with us as we with torches do, Not light them for themselves ; for if our virtues Did not go forth of us, 'twere all alike As if we had them not. Spirits are not finely...

Էջ 189 - He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.
Էջ 266 - But without a parable spake he not unto them : and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

Էջ 170 - And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
