Seite 104 - Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night. And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than six score thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle...
Seite 68 - Subject, compound them, follow her and God. Love, Hope, and Joy, fair Pleasure's smiling train; Hate, Fear, and Grief, the family of Pain...
